This is the second year I've stayed at this hotel. It's a no frills place, with tiny uncomfortable showers but it's clean and quiet and they have reliable wifi and a decent free breakfast. It's also just a short walk to the main town square and cliffs of Fira where you'll want to spend most of your visit. It's good... More

Well located attractive family run hotel a 10 minute uphill walk to all the attractions. Its best feature is the pool area which was far superior to the accommodation. I had a very basic, but servicable bedroom with 3 single beds and some knackered MDF furniture. The air con was too noisy to use but there was a fridge and... More

A seven minute walk uphill to restaurants and main town. Parking available, decent sized and clean pool. Friendly family run. Bathrooms are pretty grim, rooms just ok but everything needs money spending on it. This is only a 2* hotel so can't be too fussy. Handy free transfers to port/ airport.

Staff is ok but a little mindless. I check in and had to ask myself for information, maps and everything... Otherwise they just wouldnt have given me. The hotel has good some good points: I arrived before the check in time and the room was already ready for me, so i didnt have to wait. The bedroom is poor, old,... More

So we pre booked this hotel and advise of friends that they enjoyed it last time. Not sure why ... It was horrific. We got there and no one was there to great us at reception. We searched everywhere and couldn't find staff. So we waited 2 hours for a cleaner to ask what was happening, and then she checked... More

We arrived at the airport without a decent hotel reservation (we did have a reservation, but read some online reviews that scared us away from the place), so we wanted to check our options when we arrived. The husband who apparently "works" the airport looking for guests came right over and started telling us how great his hotel was. Our... More

The hotel had arranged somebody to pick my friend and I up from the airport free of charge. Upon arrival at the airport we had a pleasant welcome and were shown to our room. The room itself is pretty basic but had all the essentials eg wifi and air con. The room was fairly small with only a small walkway... More

I was worried about staying at this hotel because it was very cheap compared to others in the same area. We didn't organise to be picked up from the port so when we arrived we payed 20euros for a company to take us to the hotel. The golden star owner heard two of his guests had paid for a transfer...

My family and I spent 5 nights at this hotel and were totally satisfied. It is a five minute walk to Fira's center and crater views. The hotel has a very large pool. It is family run and very clean. Katherina and her mother were very polite and accommodating with us. The father picked us up from the port and... More

Me and a friend stayed here in June 2014. This was the last island on our 4 island trip and paid similar prices for every other hotel we stayed in. We booked a triple room thinking it would be bigger. It wasnt. They just crammed a 3rd bed into the room. There was no spaces between the bed. And hardly... More
