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... More

This property is gorgeous and the decor is really tasteful. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. What most impressed us, however, was the kindness and welcoming attitude of Joanne, Nancy, and their staff. They really went to great lengths to make sure that we were happy and comfortable, including being such gracious hosts to our friend who was staying... More

We wanted a couple days of the post card experience in Santorini and we got it. This is a privately owned hotel, with family members running it. It has a unique and genuine atmosphere, and avoids any kind of corporate feel without sacrificing the amenities. The location was great for us, far enough away from the crowded areas but closest...

This was our first time traveling to Santorini. From the beginning to the end at check out, the staff was incredibly kind, accommodating, and helpful. The hotel is situated on the west side of the island and has incredible views of the sea during the day, and breathtaking sunsets! The family owned business is well felt, as the chef is... More

We had a lovely time at afroessa. The view from our room could not have been better. The hotel is within walking distance to restaurants and a few shops. They assisted with booking our transport to/from the port/airport in addition to a catamaran day tour. We enjoyed several meals, snacks and drinks at the hotel. The food was fresh and... More

This was my first time to Santorini and it was clear that Afroessa hotel made a big difference in our experience. The rooms are facing the west, so we didn't have to go anywhere for a fabulous sunset. Although the hotel is off the beaten track, it is an easy walk to Firos for shopping. The benefit of not being... More

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.

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
