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

On arrival at Santorini airport we were met by a member of hotel staff that was waiting to transfer us to the hotel for free. This had not been discussed with us and was a brilliant surprise. Within a very short space of time we were in our room (14). Katerina showed us there and on entering the room i... More

Firstly, I want to say that I understand that this place is not expensive, so I don't think my expectations were too high. However after being promised a pick up from the port, nobody arrived until we contacted them and about an hour and a half after our boat arrived we were picked up, with no apology. Overall the staff... More

There was a group of around 8 of us that occupied several rooms at the Golden star for a week this month (for a Wedding) and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We notified the hotel 3 days before our arrival to double check if it was possible to get the free transfer from the airport, which we did! Katherine greeted us and... More

We booked for a 2-night stay 2 months in advance. However, when we arrived at the hotel via the free ferry transfer we were unpleasantly surprised to be hustled off to Hotel Solaris down the street without any explanation from Katherine except that "you will stay at Golden Star tomorrow night". It turns out that Golden Star was fully occupied... More

While visiting Santorini, I stayed three nights at Hotel Golden Star. The location of this hotel was great - not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Fira, but only a 5 minute walk away from it. Yes, it is at the bottom of a hill like other reviewers note, but I really appreciated that at the end... More

Hotel Golden Star was a very nice surprise. They arranged a free transfer from the harbour to the hotel when we arrived and we received a warm welcome. The room had a great view over the pool, the island and the Aegian Sea over to the east. Wifi in the room worked just fine and the room was clean and... More
