Rhapsody Traditional Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2014

If I were to return, Imerovigli would probably be a very strong option again. Close enough to Fira that you can walk there (which I did almost daily), either to get to the buses, port, or just to go there and enjoy it. You are also close to the hiking route that takes you to Oia, if you want to do it. And all of that avoiding the mess Fira can be.
As for Rhapsody itself, I have only nice things to say. The place has such a beautiful view - you can actually the sunrise from the balcony-, the apartment was spacious, pleasant, cozy and had all I needed.
George was really helpful from the initial emails, from arranging transfers to helping me with a suitcase problem and how to get around, what to see... Yet again, only good things to say.
Breakfast was good, with quite good variety and more than I could possibly eat.

Only thing I could imagine to make it better was a little pool.
So, if you are going to Santorini, would definitely recommend staying at Rhapsody's

Rhapsody Apartments is just a short walk away from the caldera and the tourist center of Fira and across the street from the bus stop, which will take you to other parts of the island. The apartment we stayed in was quite affordable and very comfortable. We had a beautiful balcony overlooking the east side of the island (not the caldera). It was a great way to start the morning (and a perfect view of the sunrise, if you want to be a little different from the usual sunset watchers).

The owner George was extraordinarily helpful, although he did seem a little overwhelmed. He helped us with recommendations, car rental, and even drove us to the airport for our early morning flight back to Athens!! There's no infinity pool or high-end restaurant, but it's a bit quieter and perfect for relaxing and knowing the sunset and the action are just a few minutes away.

I liked this place a lot. The owner was extremely kind, helpful and made sure we were enjoying ourselves..
I booked my Greece Trip Through Detours Gay Travel. And they got us all the accommodations. The good going is they researched this hotel before we even went there. So what they found to be excellent they got it for us.
Breakfast is included.. Continental. Yummy pastries, coffee and OJ
The view is amazing.. And walking distance Into town and to some delicious restaurants just up the road..

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean and hillside view..

We were unfamiliar with the geography of Santorini and where we should stay. We found Imerovigli to be the perfect location for us. Fira was just a 15 minute walk on a safe off-road path; Imerovigli just a 5 min walk to get groceries. The little town itself was quaint and offered interesting photos. But the apartment was terrific! It fit our budget, was very clean and comfortable, and the bus stop was just a few steps away from their entrance. The view of the sea off our balcony every day was therapeutically beautiful, and changed with the light play. It is a tranquil, quiet location and we couldn't have been more pleased with George and Natalie's warmth and great service. I highly recommend Rhapsody!

We just spent 4 nights at the Rhapsody apartments. Really loved the location, easy drive to all the turistic sites but still quiet for a relaxed stay. You can arrange transportation to/from airport and port with the owner, who is always available and willing to help out with anything you may need, like renting a scooter (very handy, specially when it comes to parking). Spacious and always clean rooms, perfectly maintained. Breakfast was fantastic, served in the room at the requested time. Excellent price-quality, all in all, highly recomendable as base to explore Santorini! If you are looking for direct view over the caldera or the cliff you will need to look (and pay) for something else. If you want to enjoy the island during the day and feel at home in a friendly environment don't hesitate, Rhapsody is your place!

Stay: 7 days
Rhapsody apartments are beautifully designed in traditional cycladic style. Stunning coastal views, well maintained gardens, and spacious patio. It was a wonderful first time visit to Santorini made more delightful by Rhapsody's boundless hospitality.

The apartment was spotless and cleaned everyday, towels were also changed daily. Perfect sized wet room with sky view above shower. Comfortable firm bed, large wardrobe, and well functioning appliances.

Imerovigli is a peaceful area with bakery open all hours (07:00 - 00:00) and mini-markets just a 4 minute walk away from Rhapsody. Unobscured sunsets with caldera view are just a short walk away.

All credit to Mr Kavallaris and his team. Highly recommended.

The Rhapsody apartments were really lovely. Our 4 bed villa had a cozy loft area with a nice double, a twin room, bathroom, kitchen and lounge, plus a balcony with great views (not over the volcano). Owner was very helpful and friendly. Only issues were that the bathroom was tiny (owner said he was working on expanding them) and within the apartment, noise insulation was an issue. There was plenty of parking (Santorini sturggles here) and was only a short walk to Imerovigli and the edge of the volcano.
