Great place to stay! Beautiful grounds and lovely rooms, hosts were great too. A short walk to many restaurants/cafes/mini marts/taverns and not too far to the public bus. Free wifi but didn't get it very well in our room. Thank you for the ride to the airport 😀

Have stayed there several times now and Helen can't do enough for her guests. The rooms are large and clean and the pool area lovely being surrounded by a well established garden. It's in a lovely village about a 20 minute walk from Fira. I would never stay anywhere else.

Pension George was a real gem. Located a bit of a walk outside Fira it was still easy to access everywhere we wanted to go and much more peaceful and much cheaper than staying anywhere else on the caldera side of the island. The hotel was really clean and had everything we needed, air con worked well and the pool... More

Terrific host who was always eager to help when needed. Amazing pool to relax in. Spacious and very clean room. Lovely little village about 15 min stroll to Fira. There is a terrific bakery within walking distance. Fantastic given the affordability. Highly recommend.

She does her bext to make things right. Fair location, fair price. Beddings not great... Good service, thanks Helen. Just a bit sad we had to switch rooms but I guess it happens. You need a transportation to go to Fira (30 minute walk for the center).

We have to say that Pension George was an wonderfull place from start to the end. The owner was very friendly giving all the information that we needed and helping planning our stay. The place itself is fantastic with good bedrooms, a swimming pool, a pick/drop up service and great location (near to Fira). We had a great stay there!

For visiting the island Karterados is perfectly located and within that Pension George provides a great base. From the lovely flowers that greet you at the entrance and breakfast area to the mannerly and helpful staff this was a fantastic place. Helen (George's wife) provided us with a great summary of what to do and how to go about doing... More

Barely a 10 min walk from Fira, you will find this lovely suburb, which is a stone's throw from the tourist mess of the centre but far away enough to enjoy some tranquility and authentic Greek life. On the street with Pension George are numerous lovely restaurants and bakeries not packed with tourists but with locals and the prices reflect... More
