Chromata Hotel
Ranked #11 of 51 Hotels in Imerovigli
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Both my wife and I have just returned from an amazing week at the Chromata Hotel, and what a week we had, The Chromata Hotel is a 5* Hotel amongst 5* Hotels, I will start by mentioning the cleanliness of the rooms and hotel – you could perform open heart surgery in the rooms after they had been cleaned ! The staff are constantly cleaning, painting, improving everything and they literally don’t stop all day!

When you arrive Christina (the Hotel Manager) greets you with a warm and sincere welcoming and a tour of both the Hotel and the history of the area, she and her team are absolutely fantastic, every single member has a “can do” attitude, and those guys literally cannot do enough to try and make your stay as good as it possibly can be (a couple of members that really stood out were Rasvan and an Esmeralda).

The Hotel’s view is something that words cannot really describe until you see it – it is breath taking the caldera is truly something you must see for a few days to truly appreciate it, you can spend literally hours watching the cruise ships sail in and then a plethora of little boats ferry the passengers to the shore.

In my opinion this was one of the nicest hotels we have had the pleasure of frequenting and would have no hesitation what so ever in recommending this hotel to anyone.

I will say a couple of comments – this is a high end hotel , and you will pay high end prices in ALL the three villages Thira, Oia, and Imerovigili are expensive, the average meal for two people is around a £100 pounds which if you can afford it is OK but if you are staying for a while the cost can mount up, Also post 10.30pm there is not a lot to do which can be somewhat tedious if you are again staying for a while.

We would rate this hotel a solid 9.75 out of 10 we loved it and the Chromata is a fantastic Hotel that we will never forget. Thank you Chromata you were awesome !!! ;-)

Room Tip: If you can afford the little extra to stay in a bigger room it is worth it

Chromata is THE best place to stay. Away from the craziness of Oia and Fira, but close enough to access, this hotel has THE best views in Santorini. The rooms and service were impeccable and the food, first rate. I can't say enough about the helpfulness of the staff. Our room was just beautiful and perfectly clean, as were all the facilities. We stayed 4 nights and I would go back in a minute. Christina is so helpful, organizing car rentals and doing everything possible to make the stay perfect.

Room Tip: I think any room would be great here. Rooms ! & 2 have a bit more traffic because they are clo...

My fiancée and I recently stayed here for our 5 day trip to Santorini, I can honestly say this is probably the nicest and best hotel experience I have ever had. The view is absolutely amazing from the hotel. We rented a car and drove around the island and the view from chromata hotel and the town of imerovigli in general is arguably the best there is.

From the second we arrived at the hotel the service was impeccable. The friendly staff is there to help with your every need yet does not invade your privacy. Very helpful with restaurant reservations around town, car rental, etc. etc. Great staff!

The small boutique hotel is great for relaxing and enjoying the view. Only 22 rooms so it never felt busy or crowded, lots of personal space and privacy.

Our room was fabulous. Very "large" even by our American standards with all the amenities you could want. The bed was very comfortable and everything was clean and organized.

Breakfast is included whenever you wish and comes on your private deck every morning. Why not wake up and eat breakfast taking in the gorgeous view?? Simply a treat!

Overall we had an amazing experience in Santorini and especially at this hotel. I would highly recommend it to anyone and will definitely stay here again when we come back. Incredible views of the Caldera, great rooms, and amazing staff. Very impressed and well worth the money you pay.

It's is simply one of the most beautiful and relaxing hotels you will ever experience. The staff was extremely helpful even to track my suitcase that did not arrive to Athens. The made it a priority and were following it up with the airlines. To have your breakfast ready and served to you at your own privates terrace with a view like that .... Humm you can only say "life is GREAT."
make sure you are traveling with somebody you Love, the Chromata is all about love.

The best location on the island, carved right into the caldera. Rooms face the sea and boast truly breathtaking views. Service was friendly and attentive, with no issues whatsoever. The decor was decidedly modern and minimalist, which we appreciated. The hotel carries a subdued elegance, and is a perfect mix of luxury and natural charm, with nothing really taking away from the outstanding views. This is a perfect destination for a honeymoon, as the hotel is quiet and romantic. We also found the hotel to be warm and inviting to their GLBT clientelle. The location is great, right outside of Thira. We would suggest renting a car while on Santorini to really experience all the island has to offer.

The hotel is wonderfully designed in a truly beautiful spot. The staff is extremely friendly and relaxed, willing to help you with anything. The manager Christina really looks after the guests. We booked a junior suite which was very spacious with a beautiful terrace. Breakfast was amazing. Looking forward to coming back!!
