We stayed for 3 nights at the honeymoon suite. It was fantastic. The room had an amazing design, the view was unbelievable, breakfast in our balcony was perfect.

They have an amazing Infiniti pool and very good service. It's a boutique hotel with new rooms that are amazing and an older side with apartments that are not so nice (maybe good for a family, but if you are in town for a romantic stay, go I one of the new rooms!).

We stayed on the new side and it was a fantastic, romantic stay. You don't want to leave. It's like heaven.

Jean Pierre the manager gave us great tips for restaurants. Don't miss To Psarakis in the yacht club!!!! Thanks for an amazing time and we look forward to going back!!!!

We had an unforgettable experience at this hotel on the edge of heaven. Jean Pierre and his entire staff were genuine, kind, helpful and engaging – their restaurant recommendations were spot on – in particular Ambrosia in Oia with breathtaking views, good service and delicious food – we went back twice!!

The location of Homeric Poems is perfect and the views are out of this world. There are a number of establishments perched on the caldera, each offering amazing views, but Homeric Poems is hard to beat. Clinging to the cliff’s edge, this unique hotel has uninterrupted views of endless water, blue skies, whitewashed buildings and the best view of unforgettable sunsets.
The rooms are perfect with their own terraces to enjoy your own private view of the magnificent sunsets. The food and the service is great...

Overall had an amazing time and can't wait to come back again to this place...
Thank you to Jean-Pierre and George for making our stay at Homeric Poems a memorable part of our summer trip...

Memories of my stay at Homeric Poems will remain forever with me... truly, this is a one of a kind experience. This hotel is absolutely gorgeous perched so perfectly high with stellar views of the caldera and by far, the best sunset experiences. I am so pleased to have selected to stay in Firostefani nestled between the bustle of Fira and the sunsetting crowds in Oia. Jean Pierre made us feel at home and welcomed and George was always there to tend to any need. The breakfasts were individualized and plentiful and served on our private balconies each morning in what one could only experience as perfection. The pool area and bar are tranquil and stunning, everything simply white and marble to contrast against the cerulean skies and water. I highly recommend a stay at Homeric Poems and am comforted to know that I will return again one day soon.

Room Tip: I really don't think one can go wrong with any room. They all seem to have private balconies and...

Amazing views, friendly staff (thank you Jean-Pierre for even speaking Dutch!).
Had a lovely stay here for 4 nights. It is in an very central location on Santorini but is still very secluded. Easy to reach and close to some nice little restaurants and convenience stores. Breakfast was nice as well.

Homeric Poems is an elegant hotel on the caldera in Firastephani. The suites are elegantly decorated and they offer a mini kitchenettes as well. The location is good as you don't have to walk from far from where you park your car if you are renting one. There is also not a million steps to go to either. It is only a 10 min walk to Fira (downhill), but the walk back up is a little tough if you are not in shape. The only cons we had was the service was not the greatest (slow, not on time) and we had no wifi in our room. We had to go outside of the room about 30 ft to get it.

Room Tip: Please note that most rooms on caldera are small -- be sure to ask for details on sizes of the beds...

This hotel couldn't have been nicer. JeanPierre and the entire staff went out of their way to make sure we felt welcome and had a wonderful visit. The food at the hotel was some of the best i've ever had. Locally sourced and seasonal, each meal we had there was amazing. When George found out we were checking out before breakfast was served, he made sure we had something in our room the night before and even packed us some sandwiches and cake for our flight.
I will miss having breakfast on my terrace each morning. It was by far the best part of this trip for me.
