Quite simply, amazing! Ioanna, Mary, Spiros and the staff provided a service second to none. We didn't want to go home....this must be one of the most beautiful places on earth. They went all out to make our stay perfect. Making recommendations for trips, places to visit and other restaurants to try on the island, even though we were reluctant...

If you're like me, then these TripAdvisor reviews are extremely valuable when deciding which place to book. We were lucky enough to stay at Afroessa when we traveled to Santorini in early June. I'm not sure I can fully articulate how wonderful a time we had. They do everything right and are genuinely interested in each guest. Whether it was...

My husband and I selected Afroessa for our honeymoon and would like to share our amazing experience here.. The moment we entered the hotel, we were taken aback by absolutely breathtaking view. It's just in front of caldera and brings an instant smile and satisfaction.. The staff at Afroessa is above and beyond. On arrival we were welcomed by Ioanna...

Everything about this hotel is perfect - the warm, caring and friendly owner Joanna and her fantastic team all created amazing memories for us. The quiet and secluded position of the hotel ( yet close enough to Fira and with a car or local buses the rest of the island) the stunning views facing due west, the pool area, the...

There are a great many hotels in Santorini. Most are beautiful. The Afroessa is not only beautiful, but it has outstanding service. The hotel was built in 1700 and is small by Santorini standards – and that is a good thing! The hotel has only 10 room, all with a perfect view of the caldera. Of course it has all...

I would have rated Afroessa 5 stars but I am not happy with the hotels response to my query about damage to a shirt sent out for laundering. After 20 years washing my own clothes and regular traveling using laundry services, I have never had any damage to my clothing until now. I have copied and pasted the hotels response...

We chose the Afroessa Hotel after a lot of research, and our stay at this property was even so much better than we expected! The hotel is in a perfect location - a short walk from Fira and far enough away from the larger crowds that it seemed very exclusive and was so serene. The property sits directly facing the...

From being greeted by the concierge at past 2000 with a welcome drink on our arrival date, to saying good bye to all of the staff (and receiving hugs from all of the wonderful Afroessa staff), our stay with Afroessa Hotel in Imerovigli was absolutely wonderful. I have never been more happy with a hotel in my entire life. This...

The views here were unbelievable, better than we saw anywhere else on the island...and all from the comfort of our own hotel! The staff couldn't have been friendlier, either - Joanna and Mary were always available for any advice or bookings, and Eddy was keen to help however he could. Honestly, pure bliss and we'll be coming back to Afroessa...

Santorini's photogenicity is legendary, and this hotel offer the views in spades. Hotel rooms, verandas, restaurant and pool wind their way down the edge of the caldera (100-something steps, be warned!), bisected by the main pedestrian footpath. Hotel staff are extraordinarily friendly and meals are tasty; our room was full of local character and in fine condition.

Thank Michael P

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
