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

Nice, clean, beautiful rooms! Manos and Catherine are very helpful! Let them know if you are flying in or coming in by the ferry and they will pick you up. Off-season Greek ferry schedule is erratic - so let them know you are coming by ferry. Pools are empty in off-season. No hot tub. A hotel with a hot tub... More

Simple, quiet but close enough to the centre of town and affordable - not much more you can ask for! While Hotel Golden Star is certainly not one of the most luxurious hotels you'll ever stay in there is a charm about the place which makes it a pleasant stay. The fact that it is a family run business makes... More

The rooms were very cute, great balconies overlooking the pool and in the distance the sea. They picked us (4 of us) up at the port and we didn't even book it! I understand it is a family run hotel, and everyone was very kind and helpful. The pool was clean and quiet. Do not have breakfast there, 7euro for... More
