“Excellent Place to Stay”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

My wife and I recently stayed at Afroessa while on our honeymoon. It was a wonderful place to stay and I couldn't think of anything that I was unhappy with while we were there. The staff was friendly - the owner nursed my head after an injury - the views were incredible - we could see the sunset from our room and the common area - and our room was spotless and comfortable. The location was very close to the bus stop in Imerovigli so it was easy to get around to Oia, Fira and other parts of the island. Overall, we had an excellent stay and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic and clean hotel on Santorini.

Room Tip: Our room was #8 and it was right at the edge of the property adjacent to the common area and it was...

We stayed here for our recent Honeymoon...we had a perfect time. The host and her staff are very helpful and really help with local tips/pointers! This is the perfect place to stay in Santorini... with spectacular views and a lovely coastal walk to Fira (the capital). You also can have a bite to eat on your balcony whilst the sunset going down. You won't regret staying here. We simply loved it! Thank you Afroessa... we are already planning to come back.

Well what can I say? For someone who travels quite often nothing can compare with the hospitality and the friendliness you receive at Afroessa. Add to that a perfect quiet location with the most breathtaking views and you have a perfect vacation!
The rooms are beautifully decorated with a lot of time spent on fine details. Each room with its own décor, colour schemes and furniture are so tastefully put together and reflects the tranquil back drop of the Caldera views. You can’t help but fall in love with Santorini….but I also fell in love with Affroessa. Yes, you can go to the top hotels offered on the island if you are into that all white sterile environment but what you won’t get is the service and friendliness of the staff here. On arrival we were met by Eddy who came to assist us with our luggage. We were then taken to our apartment where a bottle of local white wine was waiting for us. A very thoughtful welcoming.. .Thank you Aliki!
We stayed in apt #7. The apartment had its own self contained kitchenette but we opted to have a beautiful breakfast sent down to us each morning which we enjoyed out on our private balcony. Each morning the breakfast was slightly different with freshly brewed coffee. You could tell the staff put thought into what was selected on the tray each morning. It was also lovely to have our apartment cleaned with fresh clean towels supplied daily. Our thanks go to each one of the girls who looked after the house duties…
The area of Imerovgli is very tranquil and quiet and sits aprox in the centre of the island so you get the best views. If its relaxation you are looking for then this is the place to stay. My husband and I would just sit by the pool and breathe in the views with our mojitos and strawberry daiquiris. Ahhh…can’t wait to go back now. We know where we will be staying next time. The girls will also organise your hire car before you arrive so it’s there waiting for you at the airport. What more can you ask for?
A huge “thanks” goes to Joanna and Aliki as well as Eddy & John. Thank you for helping to make this vacation perfect!

We loved our stay! The cliff-side private rooms are impressive, interesting, unique, and more! We really enjoyed the privacy and comfort. The staff were readily available ad always a pleasure to talk with. It is conveniently located for walking to Fira or a nearby restaurant. The sunset view here is comparable or equal to Oia! Hope I'll return to Afroessa again soon!

Room Tip: Ask Johanna for advice! You can trust her opinion!

My husband and I stayed here while traveling through Greece on our honeymoon and were absolutely impressed! We've traveled quite a bit and found the friendly nature and level of service to be among the best we've experienced! The location is the best on the island as Imerovigli is the highest point on the island and therefore offers better sunset views than the more popular and more crowded Oia. The rooms are all very nice with traditional and unique touches of Greece in each. We originally booked one of the smaller rooms but when we arrived the owner upgraded us to a larger room with a private balcony as it was available at no additional charge. The breakfast is not included but is very moderately priced for the quantity and quality of food! The staff is incredibly helpful arranging transport around the island, providing dinner recommendations, etc. I would recommend this hotel to all!

Room Tip: Room #7 is the larger room with the private balcony and does not disappoint.

Extremely picturesque as pretty much anything in Santorini is. What I believe sets the property apart from the others is the courteous and hard working owners and staff. They all speak English well and make sure you are kept comfortable.

They woke at 4 am one night to bring my partner an extra pillow!

Room Tip: All rooms are acceptable.

First off, Imerovigli is much quieter than anywhere else on the island and Afroessa is away from all traffic and crowds. You can seek all of that out if you want to. We rented a scooter for the whole two weeks and came and went as we pleased. Having said that there were days we didn't leave the hotel until night time for dinner.
We stayed a week and wish that we had stayed there the second week too which we spent in Akrotiri for something different.
The view from Afroessa has to be one of the best on the island and absolutely perfect for the obligatory sunset viewing.
The owner and her staff are all amazingly genuinely friendly and look after your every need.
The rooms, pool and amenities are all clean and well maintained.
There a plenty of great restaurants in the area and all a short walk away.
Don't hesitate. What are you waiting for? Book now!

Room Tip: We were very fortunate to get room number two but all of the rooms seem great.
