How to Get To Katikies Hotel?

The hotel is conveniently located near the main road into Oia, and you can get there easily by taxi, car, or bus. It’s about 18km away from both Athinios ferry port and Santorini Airport, but they are in different directions. You can easily use local transportation options to travel to and from the hotel!

By Bus

When you arrive at the ferry port, don’t worry about transportation because buses are waiting for each arrival. Likewise, regular buses depart from Santorini Airport hourly. However, there are no direct buses to Oia, so you’ll need to take a connecting bus to Fira and then transfer to another one that goes straight to Oia. The entire trip could take approximately an hour, and tickets cost around €5 in cash, which you can buy from the bus. After you get off at the Oia Bus Terminal, it’s just an 8-minute walk to the hotel!

By Taxi

You can also get a taxi from the port or airport, but there are only about 25 taxis for the whole island, so you might need to wait. To avoid waiting, you can schedule a ride with Welcome Pickups, a private car service. Keep in mind that Santorini’s taxis don’t use meters, so negotiate on the price before your journey. A taxi from the airport to Katikies hotel should cost around €35-€40, while a taxi from the ferry port will cost about the same. Booking a private car service is only slightly more expensive, at approximately $60 (€50), but it’s worth it for the convenience of paying in advance!

By Rental Car

If you prefer driving, we recommend renting a car at the airport or Fira. However, don’t attempt to navigate the steep, winding roads of Santorini with heavy traffic. Instead, reserve your vehicle in advance if you need an automatic gearbox. Book early your car at DiscoverCars for better prices and availability.  Katikies also provides complimentary valet parking, which is a great bonus when you check in!

Traveling to 🇬🇷 Greece soon?

I recommend these travel resources for Greece that I personally use:

🏨 Hotels: I have found that Expedia and Booking.com consistently have the best deals on hotels and resorts in Greece. If you prefer to stay at a vacation rental, check VRBO that is usually cheaper than AirBnB’s added fees!

✈️ Flights: To find the best flight deals to Greece, I always use Kayak. Remember to subscribe to their price alerts for the travel dates you want. Another great alternative for flight deals is Expedia.

🚗 Rental Cars: I always use and highly recommend Discover Cars because it allows me to compare several car rental companies and view ratings on various factors such as overall value, pick-up procedure, agent efficiency, car condition, and total time taken.

🚙 Airport Transportation: For the fastest and easiest way to travel, I suggest arranging a private transfer from the airport and beetween destinations with Welcome Pickups. Honestly, no better way to travel from the airport to your hotel or resort.

🤿 Tours & Activities: For tours and activities in Greece, I highly recommend using either Viator or GetYourGuide. These websites offer a full refund if you cancel your booking 24 hours before the start of the tour, and they also provide excellent customer service in case of any issues.

🚨 Travel Insurance: I always suggest purchasing travel insurance as a precaution before traveling, especially after a recent accident in a taxi in Greece. For short trips, I recommend Travel Insurance Master, whereas for digital nomads, Safety Wing is a better option.

📷 Best Camera for your trip: I always carry with me a GoPro, It’s light, compact, takes great video and pictures, and most importantly, it’s waterproof! You just can’t go wrong with one. If you are interested in higher quality video and photography, I always carry with me on my trips and highly recommend the Sony A7IV which I think is the best travel DSLR Camera out there.

☀️ Biodegradable Sunscreen: Remember to include a good sunscreen to protect yourself from the summer sun. I always use and suggest Sun Bum Sunscreen, which is vegan, reef-friendly, and cruelty-free.
