I was able to stay at the hotel for about a week in the middle of September. Everything was perfect! The hotel, the staff and the service was second to none! The location was private and the views amazing! We hope to be back quite soon!

We stayed here for 3 days on our visit to Santorini. The location was perfect to easily explore Fira yet return to a quiet location at the end of the day.

My boyfriend Danny and I visited Santorini last month and had the pleasure of staying at Altana for 3 days. This was a long desired dream trip of mine, and I had gone through a travel agent to book our venue as there are SO many wonderful hotels that I could not make up my mind. She recommended Altana right... More

The best views of the island can be found at this small family run hotel with Fira on your left and Oia to the right and the caldera/volcano dead center in front of you. The service was impeccable. The rooms are well appointed no matter the category, each with amazing views. The best and most private, of course, was the... More

Stayed in the junior cave suite for three nights earlier this week, and was extremely happy with the choice. The location is perfect (hadn't been to Santorini before, but quickly realized that Imerovigli > Oia > Fira based on views and a lack of crowds, and this hotel is wonderfully placed in Imerovigli). Received extremely helpful (and thorough) advice about... More

My wife and I stayed in Altana for 2 nights in August. It is probably the nicest hotel we have ever stayed in . As soon as we climbed the stairs leading to our room when we arrived, we were amazed at the view. We had a superior apartment overlooking the Caldera and our own front patio. The view from... More

My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon in Greece. Our stay in Santorini was absolutely incredible thanks to the staff at Altana (and the views!). Altana is pretty much at the top of Imerovogli which is the highest point on the island on the caldera side. This means the views are absolutely breathtaking. We didn't even feel a... More

We cannot recommend Altana more highly. The hotel and views are breathtaking (the photos really don't do them justice) and the service we received was the best I've experienced. Altana's location is unbeatable. We visited Oia during our stay (an easy bus ride away) but were glad to be staying in Imerovigli, which is just as beautiful but far less... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This charming boutique hotel brings centuries-old style, history and hospitality luxuriously to life at the highest point of Santorini’s breathtaking volcanic Caldera, in Imerovigli. The restoration project of a Traditional Mansion owned by a family of generations of Captains that began in 1979 established Altana Hotel in 1983 as the first high standard guest house in the area of Imerovigli and certainly among the first on the Santorinian Caldera. This historical building complex dating back over a century, between 1779 and 1883 has been preserved, restored and renovated to meet the highest standards of modern luxury. The 6 apartments and 8 suites at Altana, each unique, blend traditional local architecture and aesthetics with modern amenities that tastefully cater for any true traveler's comfort. A unique sensitivity to detail and restored original objects revive the simple elegance of tradition and pay homage to the history of the mansion. A deeply personal service philosophy offers a unique hospitality experience in a setting surrounded by an endless horizon of blue in a bird’s eye view of the Santorinian Caldera, the Volcano, and the whole of the Southern Aegean Sea, including the neighboring islands. Enjoy a dip under the sun in the highest swimming pool on the island and feel free against the sea breeze. Lose your breath to the vibrant sunrises and mystical sunsets from your private veranda. Relax in your suite’s private Jacuzzi pool or rejuvenate your mind and body with a plethora of massage, yoga, chi-kung and beauty treatments. Enjoy homemade breakfast till noon or experiment with local homemade delicacies, sweets and wine-tasting at ‘Kafeneion’, our preserved cave-house bistro. Sample a world of gastronomy with our cooking lessons, gourmet degustation & private candle-lit dinner experiences, which incorporate our own organically grown produce straight from the volcanic soil of the Altana farm. Savor the atmosphere of relaxation and discovery that will inspire some of the most romantic and exciting moments of your life. Dive into the magic of something old and discover something new...welcome to Altana, let us immerse you into the magic of Santorini. ... more   less
