We had an absolutely splendid time in this hotel. Literally couldn't have chosen a better place for our honeymoon on the island. The location boasted fantastic caldera views, was centrally located to the main towns of Oia and Fira, and even had a bus stop a few paces down the road. As if that were not enough, the hotel staff did an amazing job helping us feel at home. Stella, Christos, and Lucas were the main personalities of our stay, whilst being assisted by others for day to day necessities. The wifi connection was a bit intermittent, but this small inconvenience was made up for; from day one to the end, where they demonstrated a genuine care and interest in both of us and their graciousness exceeded our expectations. Knowledgeable in local restaurants, drinks and more, we could turn to them for any questions that came to mind. We highly recommend staying there for any reason!
This place was amazing. Not only because of the beautiful setting on the Caldera view, but because of the brilliant service we received whilst we were there. Christof, Lukas and the team made us feel at home from the moment we arrived until we left giving us a personal touch of their charming and bubbly Greek personalities which continued to shine throughout our stay. I would recommend Imerovigli as it's in between two of the most lively cities which are both all in walking distance. Fira and Oia are very lively places and rather crowded at the best of times. The hotel staff will organise almost anything you need, just ask. I would advise renting a car at €40 a day. 😉
From reading some of the recent reviews we have just visited and can confirm the hotel has been refurbished and couldn't fault anything about it . We have just returned home from a week here and have major holiday blues we had the most amazing time . Staff at this hotel are amazing all so welcoming and will do anything to help. Special mention to Loukas and Christos and all of the other staff all so lovely . We had a great room on the corner with amazing view and best sunset spot in all if santorini to enjoy from hot tub. Breakfast is delicious especially Greek yoghurt , omelettes and coffee. Loukas makes the most amazing cocktails and will go out of his way to create anything for you. It was my fiancés birthday and he made it extra special by putting on a little party for him in the bar area . Hotel is relaxing , very quiet surrounding area but on the main walking route to Fira and oia . There is a bus stop right outside the hotel. Also walking distance to some restaurants , Anogi is a really good traditional one. We hired a quad and travelled all around santorini and so pleased we choose to stay here as it's the perfect location . If you do rent quad go through the hotels recommendation as they are great lovely family business and generally the best price you will find . We will definitely be returning in the future to this amazing place .
considering the price we paid The staff is great, always available and tries very hard to please. The hotel facilites are nice and the hotel has a great view for the sunset. We staid in a two floor room and we didn't liked the experience. The bathroom was on the ground floor and the bedroom was on the first floor. Every time we wanted to go to the bathroom we had to come downstairs. The bedroom had some signs of (not so good) recent renovation and had some holes on the walls (??). I have to say that I was very disappointed because this was the most expensive hotel of our holidays (we were in 4 hotels) and by far the one we enjoyed less.
Do you want to see the best sunset of all Santorini ? COME HERE! There is just one word that can describe this hotel: Magical ❤️ From the time that they picked us up from the airport until the last day of stay, we received the best service ever. Johanna, Eva and Lucas made you feel at home, working everyday with passion. We enjoyed every second of our stay with them. Recommendation: try Lucas cocktails and Greek dishes for breakfast. They are the best!!! Fully recommended !!!!!!😍👌🏽
This is not the fanciest hotel on Santorini and it does not pretend to be. But it is the most welcoming and most peaceful with, what for us, was the perfect location. The welcome we received from Maria and Lukas was genuinely warm and we immediately felt part of a family. We must also thank Anita, Joanne and Eva who worked so hard to make our stay completely wonderful. We had booked a junior suite without a hot tub, because we didn't think we would want a hot tub in a hot climate. However on arrival we were upgraded to one with a hot tub and actually it was fantastic, the perfect way to unwind after a day exploring this most beautiful and intriguing island. The room Itself was comfortable, clean and bright with very efficient air conditioning, a fridge, a safe and a private balcony with the hot tub. The view from our balcony was of the Caldera, which is the setting for the glorious sunsets for which Santorini is famed. The hotel does not have a restaurant but that is not a problem as there are many restaurants within ten minutes walk or two minutes by transport, which cater for all tastes and budgets. We especially loved Mezzo in Imerovigli and Onar in nearby Fira, both with fantastic food, service and perfect views of the sunsets. Breakfast in the hotel was relaxed and informal with a good range of hot and cold choices. The hotel is away from the town, which means it is very quiet at night, something we look for in a hotel, but it is close enough to get to and from Imerovigli and further afield by walking. However if you just want to relax and unwind there is a great area around the hotel's swimming pool to sunbathe and enjoy the drinks brought to you by Lukas, the cocktail maestro, who will also keep you entertained in the cosy bar. What this small hotel lacks in facilities is easily made up for by the friendliest of staff and the perfect location. We loved this place so much we are going to keep in touch with the wonderful people who made our stay so special, thanks from Pamela and Gordon.
falls completely under boutique hotel concept...the staff is very friendly and is your family away from family...this is the specialty of the place. however one must be prepared to pay for overpriced bar and; too an extent, rooms as well. if one is ready to pay then one must stay, nice view to the Aegean ocean and location is right in the middle of Fira and OIA. a special note to mention of thanks to Joanna, Lukas and Maria for their hospitality and smiles
The best thing about this hotel is the staff, they are very friendly and helpful. Other than that considering the price i paid i won't be going back. The room had a good size and the bed was ok but the bathroom needs a refurbishment especially the shower. I had to wear a flip flop as I was disgusted to stand in the shower bare foot. When I had to wash my hair it was a nightmare trying to adjust the temperature of the water as it was either too hot or too cold! The staffs uniform are worn out, the shirt is meant to be navy blue but the colour was so faded that i looked like purple! One of the days they forgot to clean my room, they did apologize and I can understand that mistakes are done but again considering the price I paid I dont find it acceptable. The barman Lucas was very friendly but I think that the prices at the bar are too expensive. Overall it wasnt bad but there are a lot of other options so if you are reading this then keep looking!
We stayed at santorini's balcony for six days and we were amazed by their dedication and their kindness. The place is wonderful, the view is breathtaking most of all at sunset. The place is very neat, the breakfast delicious and everybody is so nice. We recommend it without any reservation
What a very special place Santorini's Balcony is on the most beautiful Greek Island of Santorini. Everything here was just as we hoped for our holiday and more! The most amazing views of the Caldera right outside our hotel room and the most perfect location for the best sunset ever. Lovely staff including Vangelis, Kelly and the very special Joanna and Lukas who just couldn't do enough for us for the entire time we were there and who are most definitely an asset to this hotel. Hugely knowledgeable about the island and always on hand to advise and recommend places of interest, the sunset cruise with Santorini Sail being our absolute favourite and a must! Loved Oia and Fira, neither was far away on the bus which is both cheap and a comfortable way to travel. Hired a buggy one day, organised for us by the lovely Joanna, the highlight was Dolphin Restaurant at Red Beach. Taverna Tasos at the end of the lane is great if you don't want to go too far, the Chicken Souvlaki here was the best we tasted on the island. To conclude, lovely pool area at the hotel with fresh towels on offer every day, the towels in your room are changed too daily and the room cleaned. Lukas was very attentive around the pool bringing cold water periodically, a beer or cocktail too if preferred. THANK YOU Santorini's Balcony for helping to make our holiday so perfect!! xx A special hello and thank you to Lukas too from Mr President!! xx
