Everything about this hotel is perfect - the warm, caring and friendly owner Joanna and her fantastic team all created amazing memories for us. The quiet and secluded position of the hotel ( yet close enough to Fira and with a car or local buses the rest of the island) the stunning views facing due west, the pool area, the... More

There are a great many hotels in Santorini. Most are beautiful. The Afroessa is not only beautiful, but it has outstanding service. The hotel was built in 1700 and is small by Santorini standards – and that is a good thing! The hotel has only 10 room, all with a perfect view of the caldera. Of course it has all... More

I would have rated Afroessa 5 stars but I am not happy with the hotels response to my query about damage to a shirt sent out for laundering. After 20 years washing my own clothes and regular traveling using laundry services, I have never had any damage to my clothing until now. I have copied and pasted the hotels response... More

We chose the Afroessa Hotel after a lot of research, and our stay at this property was even so much better than we expected! The hotel is in a perfect location - a short walk from Fira and far enough away from the larger crowds that it seemed very exclusive and was so serene. The property sits directly facing the... More

From being greeted by the concierge at past 2000 with a welcome drink on our arrival date, to saying good bye to all of the staff (and receiving hugs from all of the wonderful Afroessa staff), our stay with Afroessa Hotel in Imerovigli was absolutely wonderful. I have never been more happy with a hotel in my entire life. This... More

The views here were unbelievable, better than we saw anywhere else on the island...and all from the comfort of our own hotel! The staff couldn't have been friendlier, either - Joanna and Mary were always available for any advice or bookings, and Eddy was keen to help however he could. Honestly, pure bliss and we'll be coming back to Afroessa... More

Santorini's photogenicity is legendary, and this hotel offer the views in spades. Hotel rooms, verandas, restaurant and pool wind their way down the edge of the caldera (100-something steps, be warned!), bisected by the main pedestrian footpath. Hotel staff are extraordinarily friendly and meals are tasty; our room was full of local character and in fine condition.

On the gorgeous island of Santorini, this is the only place to stay. From the moment we booked, Mary emailed us and arranged for transfer to and from the airport and helped us to make the most our stay by recommending things to do and where to eat. any other queries. Upon arrival at the hotel we had an utterly... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was amazing. The owner and staff here were so friendly, welcoming and treat you like family. The service was fantastic. We booked tours recommended by reception and they were great. The hotel will book tours, transfers and anything you need for you which is much easier. It's a small hotel so it... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hotel "Afroessa." Afroessa hotel praises romance. Our guests experience the exceptional view from our "old canavas" rooms, set atop Santorini's hillside. The original site of a winery built in 1700, it was renovated in 1998 on its existing foundation. Our ten studios, each with its own unique archway are built on five levels, with their own magical view of the Caldera. Each studio is individually decorated giving each its own distinct character, yet maintaining the traditional style. The beds are built into the foundations and the furnishings and decorations chosen so as to enhance the warm and romantic feelings created by the surroundings. The priceless moments which you will experience during the enchanting sunsets from your balconies and the relaxing pool bar, with chill-out music will forever remain in your memories, reminding you of the serene calm and magic of Afroessa. ... more   less
