We stayed a week at the hotel. 5 people in two story flat with Caldera view. Small family owned place with a great location and very friendly staff. Really nice and clean hotel with all things working. The attraction is the view over the Caldera and it does not get any better than here! And it is only a beautiful 30 minute walk from central Fira. However, local restaurants are really good as well.

My daughter and I spent a week in a studio in these apartments. We had a lovely time and Georgia and all the staff were lovely and very helpful. Our studio faced the terrace with the sea view which suited me as the sun is there in the mornings - lovely to eat breakfast with a beautiful view.
The studios are basic but spotless clean. The cleaner did a thorough job everyday. There is no cooker or microwave or toaster or kettle so don't go here expecting to go self catering ( I had no intention of cooking anyway ;). There is a fridge and a coffee machine that i used for heating up the water so that was fine.
I loved the fact that the premises are on the level as I don't think I could have coped with all the stairs to get to many other hotels. There are stairs within the complex but nothing too strenuous.
My only gripe was the showerhead didn't fit into the holder so had to hold shower with one hand while washing with other hand. I have short hair and wasn't too big a deal for me but my daughter has very long hair and found it difficult to wash her hair!! Oh and the bed is solid.
Overall I had a lovely stay and would definitely go back.

We are a family with two girls and stayed at Ampelonas for one week. The accommodation is very nice and very good price for the overall quality offered. The room (maisonette) was confortable, quiet and clean with breath-taking view on the Caldera. Strategic location, 10 minutes by car to Thira or Oia. Plenty of car park and very close to the best restaurants in Imerovigli. Trustworthy staff. Only one small criticism: there should be more variety at breakfast: we ate the same thing for six days.

Ampelonas is a family run business in Imerovigli. Personnel is very kind and helpful. The swimming pool and the surrounding terraces offer an astonishing view of Santorini's caldera, as well as most of the rooms. The rooms are comfortable. A good continental breakfast is served on the terrace or in the room, at the customers choice. Imerovigli is mainly hotels, resorts and stairs, but is also very quiet and elegant. Rates are much much lower than the hotels nearby.

First trip to beautiful Santorini and wanted to stay an extra night at our accommodation however they were fully booked so found this diamond just down the road. Perfect. One thing you should ask when looking for accomm. is how many stairs. This place is perfect - on street level, walk to a couple of great restaurants, corner store and you are up for it you can walk (25 mins) into Fira for shopping. Great view, wonderful pool (most are an overgrown hot tub!) Georgia at reception was fabulous. Nothing was a bother. Excellent value for money. This will certainly be our choice when we visit again.

Room Tip: We had room number 6 and were very happy with it apart from the bed being against the wall!!

We reserved a studio room with a double bed and a caldera view, and another studio room with a sofa bed for my parents and sister. The studio room they had worked out well b/c the bedroom was separate from the kitchenette and the living space where my sister slept, affording some privacy. Both rooms were wonderfully comfortable and inviting and seemed newer, with breakfast served right on our own balconies. Although close to parking and a mini market, Ampelonas is quiet and situated as the highest point in its part of Imerovigli, with nothing to block the views. The very best was Georgia and her staff who were extremely considerate, helpful and accommodating and gracious and made us feel very welcome. Georgia stayed up well past late check-in to accommodate our late and delayed flight in, she communicated well with us before we arrived, and helped us book a sunset cruise and restaurant reservations. Thank you Ampelonas!

Room Tip: The caldera view rooms are worth the extra bit of cost.

Rooms were large, very nicely appointed. We were 3 couples, our rooms were side by side on the ground floor, with a sea view (not caldera). We had the large garden/patio area outside our rooms all to ourselves, with multiple tables etc. We enjoyed our breakfasts here, with the lovely, serene sea view. (It was a bit too windy for the upper terrace or pool areas, with the more spectacular caldera views, for breakfast.) Georgia was extremely helpful & gracious, both before our arrival (providing info, booking car rentals for us, etc), & during our stay. Breakfasts were basic but good, & Georgia even accommodated a special request for our second breakfast. We have stayed in Santorini before & while were were not unhappy with previous accommodations, we would absolutely choose Ampelonas for future visits. As we were driving our rental cars from the port (so were not met by the hotel), we did have a little difficulty finding it at first . . . but this is not unusual in my experience, when there are no actual addresses!

Room Tip: Sea view rooms of course get the morning sun, caldera view the sunset. We were very happy with sea...
