Pros: Imerovigli is a great location on Santorini to stay. It's situated high up with a great view of the caldera. It's within walking distance of Fira (about 15-20 mins to the main part of the town). The walk is scenic, the location serene and away from busy tourist areas. The Arch Houses themselves are white, cave like, and feel very unique and truly Santorinian. Very clean and Shelly the housekeeper we met was a lovely, thorough person. Good breeze and AC available. Staff was pleasant.
Cons: No pool. No breakfast or any kind of refreshments offered upon arrival. The shower has no separation from toilet, so all get wet and one or other can be used. Management is available few hours of the day 9:30am-12:30 pm and again from 5 ish to 9 ish at night. This makes checking email (you can only use their computer) or changes in plans, inquiries for taxis, restaurant reservations and general questions, etc. difficult to do. Also, there are MANY steps involved in getting to this place from the road. They are narrow and dragging your lugguage up these stairs with no help from staff is quite a task! They watched us struggle :o(
