We'll always remember hotel Afroessa as our home and the staff as our family members! This will remain our best holiday experience, ever. Location: Uninterrupted views of magical Caldera. Situated at the highest possible point in Imerovigli. This property has its own rustic charm and tranquility and we felt refreshed and rejuvenated after a week's stay. Easily accessible by taxi...

This small family run hotel has stunning views of the caldera and islands, with Oia in the distance. There are only 10 rooms, and the staff gives wonderful individual attention. The beds are firm and very comfortable. There are numerous restaurants in the area and easy bus access to go to Oia. The hotel restaurant will gladly serve you either...

My mother and I spent three nights at the Afroessa, and I would enthusiastically recommend that anyone going to Santorini stay here. They were helpful with organizing our transportation from the ferry, the room was lovely and larger than expected, and the bed was comfortable. Those are all things I expect from a hotel, now let's talk about what makes...

Hi booked a room for august on the 9th of April, I paid for the room and today, the 25th of April they told me that due to overbooking my booking was cancelled. Two weeks to tell me that the room I paid for does not exist? Unbelievable. Now for similar hotels all rooms are booked or with prices doubled...

Great couples getaway! Fantastic views, quaint village, very relaxing. The hostesses were excellent. Small and away from all the hustle and bustle. Food everywhere was so fresh and yummy. And the Greek barrel wines everywhere helped.

We started with a nice cold drink and a chat in reception. Our bags were conveyed from the car to the room. The room was charming and well appointed. Management are very helpful and polite. Nothing was any problem. We highly recommend this place to any one who is considering this area, What about the View.

The first view and realisation that 'this is your room' is breathtaking and quite surreal. The sunsets were beautiful and we enjoyed the walks very much. The local food was fantastic and it was a short walk to the main town of Thira.

We stayed in this boutique hotel in April 2015. It was the perfect choice! The sunsets in Imerovigli are the best in Santorini: people think it's in Oia, but Oia just offers more public spaces. In Imerovigli you must have a private space to enjoy them. That's why they're so special. Perfect view of the sunset and the Caldera. We...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel "Afroessa." Afroessa hotel praises romance. Our guests experience the exceptional view from our "old canavas" rooms, set atop Santorini's hillside. The original site of a winery built in 1700, it was renovated in 1998 on its existing foundation. Our ten studios, each with its own unique archway are built on five levels, with their own magical view of the Caldera. Each studio is individually decorated giving each its own distinct character, yet maintaining the traditional style. The beds are built into the foundations and the furnishings and decorations chosen so as to enhance the warm and romantic feelings created by the surroundings. The priceless moments which you will experience during the enchanting sunsets from your balconies and the relaxing pool bar, with chill-out music will forever remain in your memories, reminding you of the serene calm and magic of Afroessa. ... more   less
