Stayed here with the SO during the peak season so the price was expensive as expected, but the place was good for it. Location was great. Karterados is centrally located in the island, so it's easy to get to Oia/Fira or down to Perissa or Kamari if you have a set of wheels. If you rely on bus, you'll have to get to Fira and then take a bus to wherever it is you're going. Also very close to the airport. If you can manage it, would definitely recommend getting a car or scooter while you're here though. To Fira, it's about a 20-25 minute walk, and to the main road's bus stop, about a 15 minute walk. There's a small convenience store 3 minutes' walk away and a grill to get souvlaki/gyros about 5 minutes away (very cheap and still good). Plenty of street parking. From the airport to the accommodation, it's quite easy - take the bus and get off at Karterados. To the ferry port, though, you'd have to go to Fira and then Athinios (about 5 euros per person i believe). If you need transport, it's probably easier to just ask Maria/Eva how much they charge to take you there (15-25 euros i reckon) Bedroom was spacious and clean, and had a kitchen sink with some cups to use. Balcony was nice to have but we didn't use it much. Request for the 2nd floor facing the ocean for a better view. Bathroom was so-so but it worked for us. The sky is pretty nice during the sunrise if you face the ocean. AC was good and wifi was decent. Housekeeping came each day we were there. We stayed in room 10 which is the first one you see when you enter on the main level. Checking in was a bit problematic at first - there's a sign for the building where the rooms are located, but the "front desk" (owner's house i believe?) is in a different building (not marked) on the corner. You'll probably have to ask someone around and they'll point it out to you. Once you find it, though, you'll meet Maria and Eva who are both very friendly and helpful. Before I arrived, Eva was very quick to reply to any questions I had via email. You can get breakfast from them for 5 euros/person. Also, we arrived very early around 830am and since the previous guest was checking out, they let us check in and had the room ready by around 930am so that was very lucky. Request for it if you already know when your flight/ferry timing will be. There's also access to a pool for guests but it's about 1km away at the Stavros Hotel. Looks decent from the pictures (especially in this hot weather) but we didn't get a chance to go. Overall, a good stay and would recommend for budget travelers.

The place was very nice and descent for what we expected. The rooms were cleaned every day, the lady was helpful and during our stay no one bothered us. We had our private balcony, parking and the place was quiet and very close to Fira (5 min by car)but also to other famous destinations. I don’t give five stars because it was a very nice stay, but with few changes (in the room decoration for example)it could be excellent. I would recommend it for those that want a not expensive stay and want to go around the island.

Great room. Quite new. Love the decoration. Owners were very nice and willing to help. Our ferry did not come because of an storm and they gave us special price for the extra day. I totally recommend it. It is close to Oia and Fira

Good budget hotel about 15 - 20 minutes walk from Fira. Clean and comfortable room with a balcony. I had cups but no kettle but when I asked one was left in my room straight away. Karterados has some small supermarkets, bakeries and some nice restaurants.

I've been there with my boyfriend for 1 week, it's nice and clean place. Our room was a bit small, but we didn't go there to spend the time in the room so it is ok if you go out and enjoy santorini!!! The owner Maria is a really nice person, she can help you with everything, she booked us a transfer to the airport and we paid less then we expect!!! The cleaner it's really clean, she changed the bed sheets every 2/3 days, we always found the room clean!!! Only one thing....when you book you need tell them that you want a studios(with kitchen) and not a room, otherwise they'll give you a room without a kitchen!!! We didn't have this problem as i send them an email!!! But to be fair... you don't need a kitchen, in 2 min walk there are tavernes where you can eat with 10€ for 2!!!
