Lovely hotel and really good value. The staff, the rooms and the facilities are excellent. The hotel is just a few minutes walk from the main facilities. The road behind the hotel is quite noisy. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again

Lovely hotel with excellent staff, who communicated really well in English. The room was clean and tidy. The pool area was very nice too. The hotel is only about a 5 minute stroll to the centre of Fira. We only stayed for one night, but they were really helpful on our day of departure-as they allowed us to store our luggage, use the pool and give access to showers (supplying towels as well!) after we checked out. Would recommend.

Just book it. Hotel Golden Star exceeded our expectations due to some older reviews and it’s value (We where in the superior room) - Large Room - Newly refurbished & stylish - Very Clean - Exceptional Staff service - 5 mins walk to main square Only draw back was the slightly salty water in the shower & taps which is common in Santorini

Just home after staying a week in Hotel Golden Star is stunning Fira. Would definitely recommend and will be looking to book here again should we (hopefully) return. Hotel was like a new build, but read it's been refurbished recently which would make sense. Everything was pristine, both internally and externally. Room was spacious and had a balcony overlooking the pool area, with the east coast and sea in the distance. Housekeeping deserve top marks, toiletries, clean towels and bedding everyday. Reception were excellent throughout our stay. Had very helpful guide to the island at check in and any other queries were quickly dealt with. Pool area was quiet most days, no issues with loungers and fresh towels always available if you want to use the pool are. Location? Spot on. Literally two short streets away from the main square. Five minute walk to bus station and taxi rank. At bottom of quiet street away from any restaurants or bars, but you only have to walk to top of street and you are into the centre of Fira. Top marks to all the staff, thank you again and hopefully see you some other time!

I stayed here at end April 2022. It has just been refurbished with new modern clean rooms and comfortable beds. There was a coffee maker, fridge, hairdryer and safe in the room. They provide soft towels for sunbeds and there is a lovely large pool with plenty of space. There is a bit of noise from the road though but only noticeable around the pool not in the bedrooms. We had a nice balcony with views of the area. The staff are so friendly, especially Mario at reception who couldn't do enough for us. Its a short uphill walk to the centre of Fira. The only negative is that there is no restaurant facilities or options to purchase water or snacks. I would definitely stay here again.

Golden Star Hotel is a "surprise" in Santorini. Anastasia, the beautiful receptionist lady, generously provided all the tourist information as if she put together a detailed 3-day tour package for us. She even called the restaurants and the boat company to make reservations for us. Anastasia is the BEST. 👍 The cleaning staff does a fantastic job keeping the hotel and the rooms very clean. One day, we brought some takeout food to the pool area for a late lunch. The cleaning ladies kindly offered us plates, silverware, and glasses. 👍 All of them made our first stop in Greece very pleasant. The hotel location is 5 mins away from downtown Fira/Thera and the Bus Station. Very convenient. Note: I live in USA. After the long pandemic lockdown and having received the vaccination, I decided to start traveling before the crowds pour in. This is the BEST time to travel to Greece because 1) Everything is open and the popular sites are not crowded therefore there is no waiting in line. 2) The local businesses want the tourists to come so they are super friendly and extra accommodating. Go and Enjoy!

Booked Seaview Rm and it looked just like the pic which doesnt show how tight the room is. Smallest bathroom shower possible and its salt water. The pool was lovely and towels were supplied, however its on a main road so a little noisy. The web states soundproof rooms (they are not) and breakfast buffet (which there isnt). Coffee is available in the am however you need to ask little Miss Cranky Pants to pour it for you 😬) 5 mins walk uphill to the main street

Do not book! If you have already , cancel while you can. Horrible. Air conditioning in rooms does not work as advertised. Can barely stand to be in room and forget about sleeping. Hotel manager pretends to call for “colleague” to repair but nothing ever happens. Room has ants too. Dump.
