“"Melrose Place Santorini"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

My husband and I just recently stayed in amazing Santorini for a total of two weeks.We were there to celebrate his 50th.We choose the Reverie Traditional Apartments for several key reasons. Firstly, its in an excellent location being Firostefani. We've stayed in that area twice before and liked the location due to it being very central to all parts of the island. It's approximately 10-15 min walk down to Fira, the main town.
Reverie Traditional apartments is a family run business and from the word go their warmth, kindness and hospitality was amazing, it shone through. Could not fault it. What ever you needed, wether it be advice on where to go, where to eat or anything u needed etc. Even went that extra mile with complimentary transfers. This property reminds me of Melrose Place. Quite a few units all surrounding a communal pool area. Some with private verandahs but all have a sitting area to relax after a long day in the sun.
The hotel is a skip, hop and jump away to view the spectacular sunsets in the square or the property also has a lovely deck where you can also view the sunsets privately.It is situated between the road and the caldera walk way. Close to bus stops that take you to Oia. There are also quite a few good restaurants around and a convenience store close by.
Our room was exactly what you see online. It was a good size, roomy,clean,comfortable and equipped with all the comforts of home. They were serviced daily. Cant fault it.
I would recommend this property due to its location, service and affordability

Room Tip: Rooms on higher levels may be less noisy and have more privacy.

Family run and they run it very well and were very nice to us. Picked us up from the port and dropped at the airport early at 6 when we were flying out. I and my wife quite liked the room, the bed is hard but we like it that way. The bathroom was nice.

The back side of the hotel is on a walk path to Fira, it is a nice typical Santorini lane with shops and restaurant. On the 3rd floor they have a nice seating area with good views
Allow the staff to recommend you places to visit and eat, they have great recommendations. Vanilia restaurant is 2mins away and has awesome food and views

We stayed at reverie for 3 nights and all the great stuff you read here is true. Service was impeccable the owners so kind and helpful, trust all their restaurant recommendations! Location couldnt be beat, easy walk to fira, right on the footpath with ample parking just across the road. We paid a little extra to get the room with the rooftop patio with great views.

Just a few very important caveats no one has mentioned here, and I was debating whether or not to write them because I feel bad, such good people, but I would've wanted to know these things ahead of time. I's on the main road so can get very very noisy with all the scooters and 4x4s so you'll be sleeping with the AC. The bedroom is on the second floor of a VERY narrow winding staircase so if you or your travel partner(s) are slightly larger than average it may be difficult. The bedroom on the second floor is rounded (traditional architecture) but with a very low ceiling. If you or your travel partner(s) are taller than 5'9, please be extra careful. Finally, beds were bad. I mean bad. No sleep hard as a rock can't turn around bad backpain every morning bad. This is the one thing that will keep us from coming back here, we really just couldn't get a restful sleep. It's very unfortunate because the rest of the experience was really fantastic!

This apartment block is nicely situated in Firastanfani near to all the shops, bars and restaurants but not noisy. All the staff were most helpful from the moment you arrive until you depart for the airport at the end of your stay, nothing was too much trouble and they were always ready to help in any way.
Our room was very clean and everything you may need was there, fridge, hair-dryer etc the girls who serviced the room were very cheerful and made sure your rooms were spotless every day.
We could not fault the hotel and enjoyed our stay at the Reverie very much, we would not hesitate in recommending this hotel.

we only spent one night at Reverie, before leaving for our trip to cyclades. But the romm was spacious and clean, staff very welcoming and helpful (the owner george waited us more than one hour at the airport for the flight was late, and his daughter nikolina helped us with few puone calls to track our lost luggage). The hotel has not view on the caldera, but it0s a good starting point to visit Thira and the island.

This was our first trip to Santorini and shall not be the last. We received a wonderful welcome and fantastic service from Nikolina, Antonia, George and Vana. Always on hand but never obtrusive. The two ladies who serviced the room every day were excellent too. Our room was spotless, very comfortable and a nice size.The pool was great for cooling down in during the sunny hot afternoon. The hotel is ideally situated for us in Firostefani, a 10 minute walk from the busier town center of Fira which has wonderful restaurants and bars, and decent shopping. There are some great local restaurants too.
When we return to Santorini we will return to the Reverie, we loved it.

We had a brilliant holiday. The hotel is ideally located in firastafani- near to the centre of Fira but a little quieter. Our room was on the top floor and was very spacious. The little kitchen area was great for preparing our breakfast and lunch. It was very clean and we had fresh towels each day. They also provided us with pool and beach towels ever day.

The Reverie family were fantastic. On arrival they gave us a map of the island and a tourist book for us to refer to during our stay. They recommended a few restaurants nearby which were all outstanding. Also they booked us a table at a restaurant in Ia where we could watch the sunset which was absolutely stunning - a really special evening. As well as this they organised our tickets for the boat trip to the volcano and hot springs ( a trip definitely worth doing). The picking up and dropping off service was also very much appreciated. They were all so helpful and welcoming and made our stay extra special.

Overall this is a very nice hotel with a personal touch - you wont regret booking your stay.
