“low-budget-high-quality hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

The staff speaks high-level English and is very helpful in all matters: restaurants (they really were excellent and cheap), car renting, where to go, ...
The rooms were big, clean, comfortable and they come with a TV (and loads of DVDs). There is a well-equiped kitchen with a big refrigerator. The surroundings are quiet though the hotel is 2 min. by foot from Fira-center. Supermarket, tourist office, souvenir shops and restaurants are nearby. Free transfer from and to the port. Perfect for two girls in their twenties who are on a short holiday.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stayed in February of 2012, the majority of the island was closed for the winter, so we had a limited choice of places to stay. We found San Giorgio's on Trip Advisor, and were pleasantly surprised. I was a little disappointed by the location, the photo's on the web site kind of leads you to expect an ocean view from your balcony, in reality, the hotel is in the middle of the town, and the view from our balcony was of the alley. That being said, the hotel is right in the center of Fira, close to everything. The room was a good size, the bathroom and balcony were small, but everything was clean and very acceptable. We spend most of our time out and about. As long as the weather is nice, you will probably only sleep in the room. There are two positives to this hotel. First, the price is great, if you want to sit on your balcony and look out over the sea, you will pay three to four times more. For what you get the price is great! Second, Giorgio is wonderful! He picked us up and drop us off at the airport, brought wine and potato chips to our room in the evening, and gave us lot's of tips of where to eat and what to do. The San Giorgio is not an upscale hotel, it is a clean spacious room in the center of town at a great price, with great, friendly inn keeper!

Good accommodations and great service. Giorgio is very helpful and provided us with a number of great suggestions for food and entertainment. The pool at the hotel is not worth going to because of its size and the fact that it was always blocked from the sun back there. The beaches we went to in Santorini were rocky, but you don't go here for the beaches. The view of the sunset is amazing and one of a kind. We also took a day trip to the volcano island/hot springs, which Giorgio helped set up for us for a better price than the travel agent in town.

For the price we paid it was well worth staying at San Giorgio Villa. We would stay here again if we return.

It is a very nice play to stay in Santorini. A friendly host and excellent service. The place is also located within walkable distances from most of the attractions in the town. There are very decent eating & shopping places nearby and of course you can always take a walk to see the beautiful harbor and all the activities attached with it.

Looking for a great place to stay, this is it, just off the main street, very quiet, clean,comfortable and convenient, George is a fantastic host who will help you in any way he can, just ask! Excellent value, shuttle service to and from the ferry/airport. We stayed here in late October 2012 and it was full most of the time, that says a lot! Will definitely recommend it, and don't miss out on the cake and coffee!

Good and Clean rooms with dvd player and hotel provides you enough movies to see if you stay in.The staff is friendly and helpful. Close enough is a central parking area. If they know the exact day and time of your trip they take you for free from airport/harbor to the hotel and the same when you arrive (in many hotels in Santorini you pay extra for this service around 15 euros in each way).Also there is no breakfast but there is fresh coffee to drink in the morning outside the rooms.Is very close to the center of Fira.

Other than the fact that this place was very inexpensive, it is centrally located, super clean, and run by the most friendly man on the planet! We were picked up at the airport, greeted with a glass of wine, and given a map with all of the must- sees circled along with directions to get there. The room was clean and spacious and very comfortable. Amazing views of the caldera were just a 5 minutes walk away and if you want to rent ATV's like we did, George will drive you to the rental place! If this does not convince you to stay, we were also bid farewell with more complimentary wine and given a ride to the ferry port! I cannot wait to visit Santorini again and stay at San Giorgio.
