“Highly recommended. Wonderful hotel, amazing service, priceless views”
Reviewed 21 June 2011

This boutique hotel is a real gem, marrying stark, white, modern decor with old-world hospitality. Every whim is catered to, every question answered with a smile. Each day started with breakfast served at our private terrace overlooking the Caldera (a wonderful departure from most EU hotels who serve buffets). Getting to Fira is a walk along a footpath that overlooks the sea, which makes it easy to take advantage of the shops and restaurants in the main town, but then you walk back and leave the noise behind. Highly recommended!

Chromata is the hotel to stay at if you plan to visit Santorini! The service exceeded our expectations; staff are personable, knowledgeable and mindful of guest details to ensure a memorable stay. Highly recommended and would return in a heartbeat.

My husband and I have recently had a chance to stay at Chromata, and we can definitely say it was one of our best holidays, not just till date but in years to come as well.
The hotel staff was very accessible, with the perfect personal touch.

The hotel has an amazing view, and has a personal veranda/ balcony attached to each room. The best part is the glass door, which allows the sea view from the bed.
The rooms are big and very well done in form of caves, unlike some of the reviews I have read. No there was no 'cat litter' to be seen. Every evening we would come back to find our beds perfectly done, with soft lights turned on and some amazing music to welcome us.

Although, the restaurant is quite small, it serves some amazing food. Also, the cost for a dinner for a two, is similar to any sit in place around. Would highly recommend it food and massage (These were the only things I tried there).

The only thing I think was missing was something to step on in the indoor Jacuzzi, one has to jump to get in and out of that, which is little risky, once you spill some water around.

The Hotel is truly a small luxury hotel, with all the advantages of a luxury hotel with the right amount of personal touch, unlike most of the "big" luxury hotels.

The hotel is just situated in the best part of the Imerovigli, it's charming, clean and modern compared to a lot of hotels in the area.
The Greek culture is not as friendly as some might expect it, but the people you find in this hotel are the most friendly and kind you probably can find in the entire island, if you found hospitable, nice and friendly people working in the hotel, they are not Greek. This is from spending 11 days in Santorini.
The rooms are very very clean, recently renovated, no closet in some of the rooms. Our room had a hanger rack and they were willing to change our room when it was available but we would loose our amazing view for an okay view compare to what we had. So we endend up staying where we were. The pool area is amaaaaaaaaaaaazing. Large beds with breathtaking views, quiet and peaceful. The staff are very nice and attentive. Very relaxed atmosphere, the music is great. The manager, a young woman, very nice, she is at the property all the time. They give you a cell phone and you can connect with the hotel at anytime from anywhere in the island which is very very nice.
They deliver your breakfast to your room, great service, very very attentive. The food in most of the island was very bland and tasteless but the food in Chromata and their sister hotel Kirini, toped the entire food experience. The food in Greece is overrated. Not good at all. Simple pasta dishes, Greek Salad and their vegetarian dishes are your best choices. The view and the weather in Imirovigli is much better than oia, the hotels are situated much higher on the cliff so because of that, you get the panoramic view and more air flow. Overall, they get five stars for their view and location and four stars for their service and hospitality.

My husband and I stayed there for our honeymoon. It was superb! from the location to the food to the service. Everyone was so helpful and amazing. We rented an atv and went around the whole island.. Oia, fira, all are super close! Our suite #7 was perfect for a honeymoon balcony spot overlooking the caldera. Just spectacular. We had the breakfast as part of our package and it was on time everyday and so fresh. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Also a catamaran booking place is right across the street so our excursions were at our door step. The atv rental was a few feet down the road as well. Imerovigli is a great place to stay in santorini as far as view of caldera and it's in the middle of the island so you don't have to pay a lot like oia and not be able to see a lot of the island. Also the hotel is recently remodeled and very pretty!
