“Absolutely Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

We spent the first four nights of our honeymoon in Santorini and were ecstatic that this was the place we chose. It is the perfect boutique hotel in as central a location on the island as you can get. It is a family owned business, and their pride definitely shows. You cannot get a better view on the island and all of the rooms open to the perfect panorama of the valcano. The staff is very helpful and while you're there, they treat you like family. I can't stress enough how perfect the location is on the island as you are minutes away from all the best restaurants and a 10-15 minute stroll from Fira which is the "centre" of the island. The only knock I have on this place, which apprently is common in all greek hotels, is you have to hold the shower head. If someone introduces this island to a wall bracket for shower heads, they will make a fortune.

What more can I say, booking our room was extremely easy, and we got a great deal to upgrade to a honeymoon suite. We were contacted several times before arrival to ensure a faultless transfer from the airport to the hotel where we were met by the most wonderful man and he greeted us at the drop off point and carried our not so light luggage down a lot of steps to get us to a wonderfully clean room with a spectacular view of the caldera and beautiful sunsets. The jacuzzi in the front allowed for a spectacular view of the volcano. The breakfasts every morning were fresh and a great way to start our day and delivered promptly. When asked about scooter and car rental for our stay, the company recommended by them was cheap, with good quality vehicles and easy to deal with. They were wonderful in helping us organise our visit with things to do and see. One of the best experiences of my travels and at the end we did not want to leave and will certainly stay there again. I would recommend this place to anyone staying on Santorini. Wonderful, absolutely wonderful experience.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon. We traveled to a few European countries, and a couple Greek islands, and I can honestly say, this hotel was by far the best hotel I've ever stayed in. It was slightly difficult to find, but we asked one of the many overly helpful residents, and she walked us to the hotel. We arrived and immediately we were upgraded from a normal room, to a honeymoon suite, free of charge. The room was amazing. There is only about 5 or 6 rooms in the whole place, and all of them walk out to a spectacular view, so I'm sure we would have been just fine without the upgrade. We had a bottle of wine waiting for us as we entered, and the manager was extremely helpful and generous. The room had a massive jacuzzi tub, which fit myself and my wife with plenty of room to spare. We had complementary breakfast every morning, over looking the beautiful santorini views. There are a few comments that complain about the breakfast being repetitive, but they must have changed it up, because it was different each time for us. I can't say enough good things about this place, I would go back in a heartbeat. Do yourself a favor, and stay here for your next vacation, you won't regret it.

We stayed in this hotel during our honeymoon, and it was really excellent experience. The hotel is very cute and very clean, with an amazing view over the volcano. We were in the suite, and it was very very nice, with jacuzzi in the bathroom...and since it was made like in a cave, inside was really agreeable and nice to sleep. Service was excellent, owner and stuff were very very nice and polite, always with the smile and ready to help with advices and useful information. The breakfast was served in the room every morning, actually on the balcony in front of the room, so every morning we were eating nice fresh breakfast with the view over the sea and volcano. Also, the location is very good, beacause it is easy to go either to Fira or to Oia in the evening, you can also have a pleasent walk around, very very nice. Down the hotel we also found the parking, so it was easy to park the car and to have it nearby. In the afternoon hours we were relaxing next to the small but very nice swimmingpool, watching the sunset. Overall amazing experience, and I would warmly recommend this place for your stay in Santorini!!!

On arrival we were greeted by a Greek? male who worked for the hotel, He carried both of our suitcases and showed us to our hotel, We searched our pockets for lose change as we thought he would hang around for a tip, in which we were under no pressure to give which was nice, not like other previous holidays. The manager showed us to our room, it was very nice and clean, One bedrrom, one bathroom with jaccuzzi. She offered a few tips and we were given a leaflet with info about restaurants and the island etc.The view from our balcony was amazing. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and flowers ( flowers bought by my parents as a pre wedding gift).
We were in Santorini to get married/ honeymoon, We were left alone and not pestered at all which was really nice. The hotel was peaceful, the pool was nice but very deep. We rang for breakfast which was bought to us almost straight away. It was a nice selection of food, ideal for a brunch.
The day before our wedding, Daphne ( the manager ) offered us a wedding gift of a room upgrade. So we packed and walked into what could be described as a 'villa'. It was so much more spacious ( a room for 4), two bathrooms, two bedrooms, living room etc This in my opinion made my wedding morning a thousand times better ( Thank you! ), alot more stress free, more room to get ready. My sisters ( who stayed at another hotel ) and my parents in another room of Aeolos could all come and get ready with me and there was still lots of space.
The cleaner works very hard and came in everyday.
There are a few steps to this hotel ( but i think their are for most in santorini) The only negatve for this hotel is that all beds were uncomfortable ( quite hard and we did not sleep well) But apart from that this hotel is perfect, We would definately recommend and re visit. On departure both our heavy bags got carried up the stairs again, We gave a small tip in which he was reluctant to take but he works very hard we noticed. Overall, a great hotel.

Room Tip: My parents stayed in the loft room, ok for young couples but the ladder to the bed was very steep an...

my boyfriend and i stayed at Aeolos studios in may 2013. We had a bit trouble finding Aeolos, but we caught the bus and then had to figure out where it was. On arrival we were extremely pleased, a absolutely stunning view and the staff were so friendly and helpful immediately. We stayed in double bed loft room, our bedroom was as if we were in a cave very romantic , also we had a hot tub in the room to ourselves and free bottle of wine on arrival, the rooms were clean, very pretty and right out our front door we had that amazing View. The hotel has free wifi, a swimming pool and free breakfast. We were thinking it was going to be a self serve buffet type meal, but instead when I asked at reception where do we go for breaky he told me just to sit outside and he would bring it out, so we had a breakfast of fruits or yogurts, coffee, toast, breads and croissants and also eggs, we felt very spoilt! Sitting outside to enjoy the santorini sun! The hotel was very peaceful and relaxing. Only negative would be the wifi that only a certain amount of guests could be using the wifi at once, which was a but frustrating. Also the cave/loft rooms are better for the young or fit because you have to climb a ladder to the bedroom and can be a bit of small bendy space to do so. But I would definitely recommend Aeolos to anyone travelling to santorini!

After reading many of the other reviews there really isn't much more to say. A stay at Aeolos Studios is everything people have said - it is seriously like walking into a postcard of Santorini. It's all there, the whitewashed buildings, the rooms carved into the caldera face, the breakfast brought up to you room any time up until 12. And the view. We arrived in the evening so didn't see anything of the caldera when we arrived but opening our doors on that first morning we were greeted by a sight I will never forget - nor did we ever tire of it during our entire stay. Breathtaking.
If anyone is planning a trip to Santorini and were like us, not knowing what part of the island to stay on, Imerovigli is the spot. It is high on the caldera, walking distance but far enough away from Thera to be away from the larger tourist throngs.
And for accommodation in Imerovigli, in cannot recommend Aeolos Studios highly enough
