Idyllic locationPosted Jun 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Very traditional Greek hotel in spectacular location. Extremely quiet & relaxing with views to die for. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Very clean. Good selection of items for breakfast.

Beautiful stay here recommended to allPosted Jun 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
A fantastic place to stay. View from the pool is just like the pictures. We stayed in a basic/classic room with a sea view from the balcony. Balcony´s walls are low so the sunset can be viewed from front outside area of your room. This was amazing and we did it each night we stayed. There was no one in the room nextdoor so we didn´t have to share the view either! Staff were sooooo friendly and accommodating. House cooked breakfast each morning. You fill in a proforma with your requests for breakfast each morning. Options range from bacon and eggs to sweet crepes. Nice chance to interact and have a laugh with staff. Room clean. Bed comfy. Good sleep. Hotel located about a half hour walk to Fira (the main tourist city on the island). There is a bus stop right outside the hotel which will take you to Fira in 10 mins. Bus comes every 20-30mins. Hotel´s location is quiet and surronded by natural beauty! We loved our stay here and recommend it to all.

Not what I expectedPosted Jun 14, 2013
Pros: The breakfast was good.
Our bedroom had no windows at all and gave me the feeling of being in a cave. The blankets were extremely musty smelling. The only outside light was from a small window in the front room that looked out onto the back of another building (not what I was expecting for a sea view room). The ocean was visible only if you looked way to the side or if you went onto the porch. The toilet continually leaked on the floor, and there was no hot water. We decided to leave after the first night of a three night reservation, even though we could get no refund for the remaining two nights. We found a much more satisfactory place elsewhere for half the price.

Relaxing & traditional...Posted Jun 13, 2013
Warm & friendly staff that make you feel at home. Delicious breakfast to order each morning. Traditional cave style rooms with spectacular views of the Caldera. Lovely pool & pool area to chill out! Excellent Greek food available from the taverna next door - Taverna Tasos, so you can just hang out each night if you wish after watching the famous sunset from Santorini's Balcony. Good walking track available at hotel to access other areas in Santorini without walking on the roads:- 10 minute walk into Imerovigli 45 minute walk to Thira 1 hour 30 minute walk to Oia Bus stop available outside if you choose not to walk or wish to go to the beaches. Relaxing & convenient if you don't want the hustle & bustle of Thira.

Perfect for a relaxing few days of sun/sea + viewsPosted Jun 9, 2013
Pros: staff and views.
Cons: None really.
Location: Anyone wanting nightlife should be aware that it is not really within walking distance of the main town.
Very warm and friendly staff; with lots of good advice about what to see and do. Excellent breakfasts with lots of quantity and quality. Spectacular views from the pool and lounging area. Really good value for the cost.

Awesome experience!Posted Oct 25, 2011
The owner/staff could not have been nicer! They actually arranged to pick me up since my ground transfer upon arrival could not be verified, my flight was 1hour 45 late and they waited for me! Brought me a bottle of wine as a welcome gift! Went out of their way to be of service my entire time!!!! I will come back there in the future and highly recommend this hotel. The buffet was awesome! Beautiful people!!!

Beautiful Santorini's BalconyPosted Aug 10, 2010 on Hotels.com
THIS is the place you should stay while on Santorini! The view is breathtaking, the facilities fabulous, the breakfast yummy, and the owner so very, very helpful. It's a bit of a ride, but well worth the trip.

Charming Greek treasurePosted Sep 15, 2009
We had the most wonderful stay here. This charming property in Imerovigli had a beautiful sweeping view of the caldera and the Aegean Sea, which I liked much better than Oia. I highly recommend staying here. Not only is it affordable, but the apartments/rooms truly felt like our Greek home for a few days. Great attention to detail, and lots of personality, unlike other generic places. Thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the pool and sitting out on our private patio. The breakfast on the balcony was a great way to start the day, and the location was convenient. It was close enough to the nightlife of Thira, yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle so we felt relaxed. The owner really went out of his way to make us feel like adopted Greeks. Truly one of the friendliest people I've ever met in the world, and I travel a lot! I visited Santorini with a good friend, but I can easily imagine that a couple would really enjoy a romantic time at Santorini's Balcony.

Outstanding Quiet StayPosted May 28, 2009 on Hotels.com
We arrived and were amazed with the view and the location. We enjoyed being a bit farther away from the craziness of Fira and Oia, so this was a great compromise. The view of Caldera was right on our front porch, which we watched every night. The host, was kind and entertaining. It was one of our favorite places to stay while we were there.
