Recently stayed at the Golden Star, and what a waste of money. I went with an open mind; however this hotel was a let down. At check in, no one checked documents, and just handed us our key, and just blankly stared at us. We went to the room, it had a dirty feeling, and was very dark and smelly,... More

Very central hotel, walking distance to the centre of fira, great for hiring a car since it has a car park which is a big plus in fira. Simple Greek style room but sufficient for us who spent most of the time outdoors. Nice pool!!

Basic, basic, accommodation. Not what you see on the Internet. Rooms need a refurbishment, basic and depressing. Property not painted in traditional blue & white colours as seen on Internet. Bar pool not operational. The pool is the only nice thing about the property apart from its location. Staff apathetic and not engaging with visitors as you would expect on... More

The room was small but cozy the pool looked beautiful I didn't get to swim because it was cold but I'm sure in the summer it's nice to swim in. They allowed us to check in... More

Golden Star is at the heart of Fira just a five-minute walk from the Caldera - enough to escape the hustle and bustle of the centre. It offers a view of the sea on the other side of the island. The rooms, although not very big, are clean and comfortable. The hotel also offers a parking space and functional Wi-Fi... More

First time in Santorini and you do not have a caldera view from this hotel. It is not near a beach either. The outside pool is ok. Breakfast was basic but did the job. It is very near to Fira bus station which is very handy. It is not far from the eateries in Fira. It is easy to get... More

Lovely hotel and grounds. Friendly staff, were very helpful (but maybe because we could also communicate in basic Greek). Does not have a caldera view, however rooms facing the pool and the backdrop from that side of the hotel are great. It's not a far walk from the town center. If you're on a budget in Fira, this is a... More

From the outside the hotel has a blue and white smart retro look, the interior a bit Greek kitsch but pleasant all the same. Situated a short walk from the centre of town, the location was very good, though it is at the bottom of a hill so anyone with mobility problems should bear that in mind. The room as... More

The rooms need upgradations...the bathrooms are small. The helpdesk is unattended all the time other the checkin. English is a problem here - but the only good thing is its next door to the bus station and the main square
