        I liked the friendliness of the staff, which of course accrues from the friendliness of the lovely owner and his boss (son)! It was a great experience!

        Our room was directly overlooking the sea and we had a beautiful view. The hotel staff were friendly and very welcoming when we arrived.

        I loved the location and the spectacular caldera views. The apartment was nice and was cleaned daily. Breakfast was delicious and the owner Socrates was so lovely. He was friendly and helpful and very informative. The bus has a stop out front which makes getting around the island easy. There is a taverna next door which served amazing food and some other restaurants within walking distance. My friend and I have decided that we would definately visit again.

        The views of the calderas from our balcony was superb

        No bar facilities, no supermarket nearby - have to buy your supplies when you are in town.

        The outlook of the hotel is beautiful, facing the Caldera directly and perfectly positioned for the sunset. It is a short walk to Imveromigli and Fira. The staff are friendly and very hospitable.

        Our room was not as comfortable or luxurious as we would have expected for the price. The bed was too small to be considered a double and was quite uncomfortable. We had booked and paid for an apartment, but were given a "studio". The tv in the room is positioned at right angles to the sofa and almost at ceiling height making it difficult to watch. The kitchenette in the room constututes a fridge and a sink without even a bottle opener. There is no kettle or hot water in the room other than from the shower.

        I just love the location and views and the whole package including the staff and most of all the personal treatment that you always get from Sokrates

        Nothing to put in here

        Very friendly and helpful hotel staff, great Caldera view, a nice relatively small swimming pool.

        Not too many varieties for breakfast, a little bit far from city center Fira.

      • Single

        The view is good. It is quiet. Rooms were well cleaned. Parking was easy in front of the hotel. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful. It's has good access to a clifftop waking path. It is not far by car to Fira and Oio.

        The hotel is basic. The pool is OK, but there are not enough sunbeds, and quite often I had to use a chair (I was travelling alone). There was no hot water tap in the bathroom. There was no kettle to make tea/coffee but there was a portable hob. The TV was mounted in a strange position so not easy to watch. Breakfast was very basic. Wifi did not work in my room I had to sit by the pool to use it. It is all a bit tired and done on a budget and the brochure/web pics make it look a lot better than it is. Also my room was sold at a discounted price which would have been ridiculous had it been the real price, so this in effect gave a misleading picture of the quality. There's no restaurant, so you have to travel to eat. There is a locall taverna very close which is basic but you need to travel to Fira or Oio to get good retraurants. Overall I felt that you can do better for the money. The owner said it was a four star hotel but I would rate it at two or three at the most. I would only recommend this hotel if you want a quiet out of the way place with no frills. Having said that I enjoyed my stay because of the weather and because I was alone!

        It was very nice holiday for me and my family the staf was super starting from the manager mr socrats and stamatiss the joker boy of the hotel and dafina from the room house keeping extreem nice friendly people ,the location is breath takeing when we arrived in our rental car and turned to the right to park it was about sunset we where amazed from the view that we stayed in the car without moveing just from how it looked like ,if you want the best place in the island ( wild reel greek style and quite first you should choose imerovigli village in santorini it is not on the beach ) then balcony art house is located next to one of the most expensive hotels thier but we had the same view so why pay more for the same location ,thanks socrats and stamatiss and dafina ,see you very soon we are comeing back even 2 times we are planing next year

        The only meal served is breakfast its ok with us but the place and the staff deserve a better varity breakfast the goes with the prestige and location and the whole thing ,and to have the nice yougort every day :)

        The view ( then this is not the hotel) it was absolutley awfull!

        We need more than 300 words but to give a a breif account, it states that it is a self catering but this is not so as you only get a 1 ring portable hob! Along with 1 x saucepan ( they do not offer any other pans!) 2 spoons 2 blunt knifes 2 forks no other utencils!! A tiny sink with only 1 cold water tap!!! Shocking.t he pillows and bed are very uncomfortable, the front door needed a very strong hand to lock!, The shower dribbled out running hot then cold! ( the shower was in a cupboard!!) We paid for a premier room but we were put in a tiny room over looking the pool, they then moved us to an equally tiny room( not what we paid for) when we told them we paid for a room for upto 4 people they told us as there's only 2 of you, you will only be put in a room for 2 people, running out of space! Don't stay there!!!!!!!!

        We loved the location, the best views in the island!!, and the swimming pool was lovely,too (clean towels were provided and well displayed every time you needed them). Rooms were comfortable and clean, though a little bit basic for the price.The owner and staff were very kind and friendly,always ready to help the customers out.

        Breakfast was scarce and not very varied, some fruit would have been appreciated.The amenities in the toilet (shampoo and gel) weren´t changed in the 9 days we stayed, and we run out of them the second day.Other than that, we loved the place.

        great attendance to guests, nothing was too much trouble, all travellers' needs catered for, nice design of accommodation

        liked everything

        A breathtaking location and thrilling view to sea and sunset! It is great to have a swim in the pool 300 m above the sea.... Mr. Anthony and his team are so generous, awesome, kind and customer oriented. Especially Stelios, Stamatis and Katharina built a sympathic familiar atmosphere and felt exactly, when they needed to be there. Stelios's open and integrating communication at breakfast buffet times invited to build bridges between the international guests and helped to start off into the day easily. You will love his selfmade extra sweets & bakery as breakfast desert! The rooms are designed with individual signature & very good taste. We will love to come back some day - and it was the dream on earth for our honeymoon... Meike & Peter, Bochum, Germany

        If we would rise a wish: to have the opportunity to have drinks and maybe little snacks at the pool or happy hour at sunset time....

        The view is great. The staff tried really hard and were very friendly, meeting us at the ferry at 1am just to show us where the place was. Lucky as we never would have found it. The poor two staff had to do everything from cook to maintenance and front desk etc. It's more like staying in a bed and breakfast than a hotel. This is ok but not what we expected

        I think the hotel was oversold on Booked.net and their website. If it was sold more as a guest house it would be more accurate. It's not an authentic cave house, you are not in the town of imerovigli you are just out. We were dissapointed with it as we thought we were staying right in town and then the little things just started to get to us ie the wi fi is bad, the tv didn't work and the showers were cold( they fixed it after a day), the chemical they use to clean the room make it smell like a hospital as you walk in your room. We booked a non refundable room so when we approached the owner about moving somewhere else he wouldn't / couldn't due to booking.con already taking their commission. Anton the owner was lovely about but in the end we gave up $150 euro and went and stayed at kirini suites in oia, although more than double the price it was much better value for money

        We where their last year with our littel baby we liked every thing we realy felt home the hotel is in one of the best locations and have a super view and the stuff specialy stamatis the joker man who will give you anything with big pleasure and real smile not to mention the owners mr Socrates ,and his son mr antoni , the breakfast was so poor we told them that and that was our only complain , the surprise when we came back this year we found that they took our and others as we read complain about breakfast and the bilt a place write in front of you where they prepare what you desire in front of you fresh on the moment when you arrive or if you like a night before they give you a list of multi choices ,that you mark what would you like to have and what time very nice sure was pleasant to see that past year,s complain was taken in consideration and fixed without mentioning names of other hotels in the same area that are much more expensive balcony is a real super balkony for someone who would like to real home and looked after from the heart ,we recommend it sure to some one who will like to feel in greece in traditional colors of houses and I believe one of the best views and the peacefull atmospher it's not like oia who has most of the photoes in the cards thier is so nice sure but you get the feeling that every one is living together in the same place in imerovegli balkony you are alone ,and when you want the company every thing is within reach in Santorini in what ever way you can afford ,that is my personal opinion ,I am a pilot captain that traveled around a lot and that's the place we found to relax and feel great me and my small family ,P.s by the way thier a very nice taverna (Tasos ) on the angel of the balkony 3 minutes walk we hope our review can help other travelers like us who are seeking the same peace of mind and the super view which you will never stop to love thanks ans see you next year as it will be our third year

        For us it will be unfair to say we didn't like something they did every thing to make our stay the best
