“Fantastic location at budget price”
Reviewed 9 June 2013

We stayed 4 nights here in a studio apt. with terrace on a 5 week greek island holiday. It stands out for 4 reasons.
1. Location - It is on the 10km footpath that runs from Fira to Ia so you can easily walk the 2km into Fira through the little alleyways to catch buses to the beaches or go on the excellent excursion to the Volcano Island and Hot springs (which are NOT hot - 24 degrees water) and you can do the amazing 8km walk along the caldera to Ia which in itself is far nicer and less crowded during the day than Fira. The Apt. are not on the cascading side of the cldera (which are expensive) but from the sun terrace or roof terraces of the more expensive studios you get views over the caldera and can see the sunsets. The apt. are actually in front of a street/car parking area but it is not noisy.
2. The rooms. Ours was full of character, v. small but good wardrobe space. They are full of 'cycladic' features with little arches and ornaments but not cluttered. Main disadvantage to our studio was it was downstairs with no views, the tiny terrace you share with 2 other rooms is below street level and not plasant to sit in. It also got only a couple hours morning sun and drying clothes was impossible. It is best to go up to the main terrace near the little pool where you get breakfast to sit and sunbathe.
3. Breakfast - keeps you going all day. Tray with ham/cheese toastie, choc croissant, bowl yogurt, bowl fruit etc.
4. Staff. A young friendly and helpful group. They will pick you up and take you to the port a good 20 min.drive away.

In all this place was great for a budget place to stay in the midst of the expensive villa/apts. of Santorini.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a room with a roof balcony

arrived Santorini to discover last ferry to Ios island had gone so we found place to stay overnight from tourist office - such a lovely little studio apartment with really cute roof terrace where we had breakfast prepared and dropped off to our fridge the night before as we had an early start. Perfect stopover - wonderfully comfortable bed and lovely owners who dropped us to the port in the morning. Hubbie even had a swim in the little pool!!! Thoroughly recommended.

People fantastic. So helpful. Generous breakfasts-welcome drink and even a goodbye gift! Great view for good price. Not fancy- but still treated like we were at 5* place! Also- a wonderful town to stay in. Beautiful, quiet, close enough to other towns- especially if u rent a quad. If you do rent a quad be sure nor to leave much/any gas in it overnight though, cause it'll probably be empty in the morning!
 If you go to Santorini (and don't want to spend $1000's)  this is the place to stay!

This hotel is very reasonably priced, rooms are quaint and clean, and breakfast is ample and delicious. Unfortunately, it is located amidst the main parking area for Imerovigli, and as a result the late night and especially early morning are filled with sounds of scooters, delivery trucks, and trash removal trucks. I'd suggest this owner's other property, Santorini Mansion, which has all of the benefits of Merovigliosso in a much quieter setting.

We stayed in their studio apartment which was excellent value for money and although it didn't itself have a view was very clean and attractive and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a bottle of local wine as a welcome gift. The location was great and across the road was a fantastic view of the caldera. We had a huge breakfast on the terrace near the small pool and found the small shop, where we could by food, and the bus stop a short distance away. The owners were very friendly and helpful, collecting us from the port although our ferry was at least an hour and a half late, and taking us to the airport when we left. Santorini is Fantastic for views and this hotel has apartments with balconies with views.

Room Tip: studios have no view.

The price was certainly right for Santorini in August and the concierge was extremely helpful concerning anything we needed, so it pains me to say that the photos of the property are deceiving. They look like the place overlooks the ocean but what it overlooks first is the road in front of it, with other hotels beyond it, before one can see the water. Also, the head of an average-height person is no match for the curved ceiling over the 2nd-floor bedroom. What with the bathroom on the ground floor and a long staircase inbetween, our apartment was quite inconvenient for anyone needing to visit the toilet at night.

Room Tip: I don't know if all the rooms are laid out like ours was but if they are, elderly people especia...

We stayed at Merovigliossa recently for 11 nights in beautiful Santorini. This was our calm oasis from the business of Thira as it is tucked away in pretty Imerovigli. What make this place special is the great welcome and attention paid by the staff, all of whom are friendly and so helpful. But most of all, you cannot fault Roula and Costas who are just the perfect hosts. Costas picks you up at the airport and you are constantly offered lifts if the staff themselves are travelling in your intended direction.
When you return from a day out, you will be offered an iced coffee, or juice and fresh fruit and the breakfasts are plentiful and filling-you will not need to eat again until the evening!
Roula and Costas are a great couple who go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need for the perfect holiday-we could not fault them.
There may be smarter places on the other side of the road, but you will not beat this hospitality.
