“Good Value, Lovely Host, but..”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2010

When my wife saw the view from the front door she gasped. When I was told the price, I took it up immeadiatly. Our apartment had extensive views from all rooms, balcony and the upstairs bedroom. There was a spiral staircase to the bedroom.
Pros:
Great views from every room.
Host was very friendly and as helpful as possible.
Service was good but could be improved.
Very good value for the money we paid.
Cons:
The banister in the upstairs bedroom was short and made us nervous that we would trip over it and fall to the room below. This Really Needs Attention asap.
A faint, bad smell occasional wafted through the apartment. Other times we could smell the chlorine from the pool nearby.
Evangelo told us we would be able to see the sunset from our apartment. You Can't. We had to walk over 100m South from the apartment to see it. (maybe in winter?)
Breakfast was poor.
The rooms were on the small side, but for the money I don't think I should complain.
I would recommed this to a friend for the value it offered and for the warm and friendly host, Joanna, but only if they can get the same room as us and would prefer to stock up to make their own breakfast.

We arrived at Nefeli Homes Imerovigli and were greeted by Joanna and her husband. They were extreemly friendly, helpful and informative The hotel is situated just a 20 minute walk from Thira centre. The views from the balconies and rooms are magnificent with uninterrupted views to the Cyclades. In the evening the sun setting over the Agean is not to be missed. The big positive is that Nufeli Homes are situated at the top of the cliff giving the most fantastic views.

This family run business help in any way possible to make the stay enjoyable. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is served outdoors on whichever balcony you prefer.

The supermarket is just a one minute walk away. Restaurants are plentiful within a few minutes walk. Bus service is every half an hour into Thirra.

Joanna a big thank you we loved every minute of our stay. Max & Sheila

Perfect, beautiful and quiet location between Fira City (25 min walk) and Oia (25 min drive) with sunsets at least as spectacular as in Oia (and less crowded) but much more elegant walkways and many nice restaurants in Firastefani (5-10 min walk). Most rooms are cozy duplex studios, the breakfast is simply good, the terraces offer great views of Imerovigli, Fira and the volcano islands. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, also in terms of pick-up/ drop-off at the (air)port – thanks again for an unforgettable stay!

We had a bad expirience during our stay that made us leave after the 4th night. Beside the simple breakfast there were very noisy guests that would have a warm up party in the hotel, go out partying, come home and have ongoing chats and laughs on the balconies till 5 AM. After complaining to the owner, she promised to kick them out but instead the noisy guests moved to another appartment and went on partying.

For 150€ you expect much more privacy! Finally we checked in to a quite hotel in Firostefani for 120€ per night and even the rooms were better and still Caldera view!

The plus is the location, the amazing view and the cute balconies.

This has to have one of the most stunning views on the island and we couldn't get over how amazing the view is. However I would caution over the choice of rooms, we were shown two and unfortunately, even though the place itself is stunning, both the rooms were not that great. Neither had windows, which meant it was very dark the whole day through, they were also a little cold and damp. The one we settled on was on the bottom floor (with the separate balcony), but I think that others in the hotel had better rooms. Otherwise we had a great stay, the staff were really nice and helpful. I would recommend hiring a car to see more of the island as you may feel a little isolated in the town if you don't.

We arrived at Santorini airport on an early morning flight and were quickly whisked away by Angelo in his shuttle bus to Nefeli Homes in beautiful Imerovigli. You cannot imagine how delighted we were to also have our room available and so early. Our room was number 10 and it slept four very comfortably as it was the largest room in the complex, it kept going and going and going. Johanna and her staff were available till late to answer questions, help with car hire, dinning recommendations etc., and they were very welcoming and always eager to please. Breakfast was simple but nice and it was bought to your balcony every morning, or you could choose to sit on the big table and have a chat with other guests. The plunge pool/jacuzzi was more than enough to refresh you on a hot afternoon. Personally I was there for the views and they did not disappoint, they took your breath away time after time after time.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in May 2009 at the end of a week's holiday on the beautiful island of Santorini. Found this hotel on trip advisor and booked through hostelworld with some of the lowest prices on this (the more picturesque, sunset) side of the island.

Found the hotel fairly easily after parking up nearby and shown to our clean and tidy room (number 6) with a shared balcony with one other room with plenty of space. There are plenty of little seating areas all with wonderful views and breakfast is served each morning at any of these. There is also a beatiful roof terrace and small plunge pool. It was very early in the season when we visited so not many people around but I think there would still be plenty of space even when fully booked.

Would recommend this place to anyone. Expect to pay more on this side of the island than the resrts of Kamari and Perissa, prices are at least 60euros per room up to hundreds. It is worth including at least a couple of nights on a longer stay as the views are gorgeous.
