A magical spot, a beautiful room and top service. The staff cannot do enough for you, many personal touches have been thought of, also the food is amazing and very reasonably priced. Just a small word to the wise, if you have any walking difficulties this is not the place for you as there is a massive walk up to... More

The views from this hotel are absolutely beautiful and the service really was outstanding. However we were very disappointed with our room. We booked the €900 a night Caldera suite but it was TINY (barely room to move) and had absolutely no privacy what so ever even on the 'terrace' which was separated from the room by a public walk...

All previous reviews have said it all, but I'll say it too! The Iconic is beautifully situated on the edge of the Caldera, and every room has a perfect view. We stayed in a Grotto Suite (Room "M"), which had a plunge pool inside. I thought this was a bit weird when I booked the room, but in actuality it... More

My wife found this little gem by going through tripadvisor reviews. Where were there for 5 days and it was an amazing romantic trip. The hotel was so helpful prior to our trip.

We had no idea what to expect being our first visit to Santorini. I had read the reviews on here and liked the consistent vibe the place was receiving. I had initially envisaged the hotel being a discrete unit , quietly located and exclusive. It is in fact part of the town occupying the lowest point in the Cliff edge... More

Greetings from beautiful Santorini! Thank you very much for the feedback following your visit to our haven of tranquility.

While all of our boutique... More

To say that the views are breath taking is a given, to say that the area the hotel is located in was a pleasant surprise though - close enough to walk into Thira the capital while far away to feel like you have full privacy. The hotel itself is quite basic all be it in a very classic way. I... More

Many of the hotels in the area are beautiful. Great views. Clean rooms, etc. The difference here is the staff and service. Simply a great group of people who are friendly, helpful with recommendations, and altogether welcoming in a way that is more unique than a typical high end hotel. We will return!

Beautiful setting, amazing service and wonderful meals are my fondest memories of our stay here. Be aware, however of the low ceilings if you are over 6' (as we both are) - you really are in caves! Incomparable sunset views!
