We shared an apartment here with friends for 5 days.
We received a very friendly welcome and were quickly settled into our apartment.
The ground floor of the apartment comprised a kitchen area, (cups, glasses, cutlery, kettle, fridge - no cooking facilities), a small bathroom, (including shower), a day bed and double bed with windows opening onto a balcony. The upstairs level comprised a double futon style bed with en suite toilet. You could also access the roof terrace via the upstairs window. The stairs to the first floor were quite steep and the ceiling low so a little care needed. Towels were provided for inside and poolside use.
The apartment and complex were kept very clean and tidy and there was a choice of areas either to sit in the shade or sunbathe and a separate pool area. Beware the water in the pool is very cold!
Being situated on a hill and the choice of terraces/balconies available, there was always a place to sit in the sun and we could see both sides of the island. We had the most wonderful view up to Oia and watched the sunset from our balcony.
We had breakfast at the apartments most days and it was always, fresh, hot and served with a smile. While we were able to pay for the apartment by card, you do have to pay for breakfast in cash which can catch you out if you are settling up at the end of your stay.
The location of the apartments is perfect; far enough away from the busier areas but easy enough to get to them. There are plenty of places to eat within a few minutes walk, mini markets and vehicle hire. There is also parking nearby. Great base from which to explore a very beautiful island.

We stayed in this little hotel for three nights. There were four of us in the family. We flew into Santorini from Athens on the first flight and therefore got to catch the beautiful sunrise as we touched down at the airport. We rented a car and drove straight to the hotel. It was not too difficult to find the hotel and there were always some parking spaces available at all time while we were staying there.

The staffs were nice and friendly. They actually let us check in shortly after 8am, well before the check in time stated.
The mansionette had two queen size beds. One at the top upper floor and another one on the bottom floor. Due to the white painted low ceiling and Santorini style architectuaral design, one might have to be very careful if sleeping on the upper floor. Your head could easily bumped and hit the ceiling if not careful. There was also a toilet, and a sundeck you could climb out from a small window at the upper floor.

Apart from a queen bed, there were bathroom, balcony with chairs and table, small dining table, kitchenette and cupboard with a safe located at the bottom floor. The room was clean and comfortably big enough for four of us.

Scenery was great.. we could watch the sunrise when stepping out from our main door, and the paranomic sunset from our balcony in the evening. Certainly, it was still worthwhile to go to Oia for its paranomic sunset view.

The pool was small. We did not swim in their pool as the water was too cold.
Our room package didnt come with breakfast. The staffs could help to order takeaway at night. The takeaway food was reasonally priced and inexpensive.
The hotel was nice and located away from the busy Fira. So.. it was really a great place to stay in especially if you rent a car during your visit.

Great position with breathtaking views, high on the hill in Imerovigli. One of the few hotels that offers views to both sides of the island. The famous sunset views are on the caldera side and there is a roof terrace if your rooms balcony faces the ocean on the other side. We walked to Fira and back, but there is a local bus stop close by, if the uphill return walk is too much. Very helpful staff, good breakfast served in your room or on any of the terraces. A quiet location with good restaurants in walking distance. We enjoyed our 3 nights and would happily recommend the Ampelonas Apartments.

We had an amazing time at Ampelonas appartments. We stayed there for 3 nights and were really impressed. The staff, cleanliness of the place, the view as well as the breakfast were impeccable. We recommend this place to anyone who wish to spend a lovely time in Santorini. They really work hard to make everything perfect for you. We loved it and will stay there again if we go back to Santorini.

Really recommendable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The view is amazing. Its near the main town Fira which is touristic. The apartment is in a very calm area though. With a scooter or car you can easily reach every part of the island.

We had an awful stay in another hotel and were saved by the beautiful Ampelonas Apartments. The lady who looked after us was incredibly friendly and efficient. We were given a beautiful family room with a fantastic view over the caldera and enjoyed an excellent breakfast on the balcony of our room. The position is breath taking and a stone's throw from the centre of Imerovigli village (no hills to climb!) which was great. There is a beautiful pool which we had all to ourselves every time we used it and our room had a lovely, clean kitchen area and the bathroom had a good shower. The lady very kindly re-arranged our transfer to the airport as we had moved hotel and could not have been more helpful. I would thoroughly recommend this beautiful apartment for a relaxing holiday with incredible views and wonderful staff.

Room Tip: They all looked great!

We stayed a week at the hotel. 5 people in two story flat with Caldera view. Small family owned place with a great location and very friendly staff. Really nice and clean hotel with all things working. The attraction is the view over the Caldera and it does not get any better than here! And it is only a beautiful 30 minute walk from central Fira. However, local restaurants are really good as well.
