I have stayed at the Hotel Golden Star previously and it was great. However this time it seems the hotel has aged and requires a major refurb. It is a very budget hotel, however the price you pay is not what I would call value for money. Pay extra and stay elsewhere. Unless you are on a tight budget and can handle certain cleanliness. Service was great however I mentioned something I wasn't happy with and I was impressed with the response nor the no follow up to advise the outcome. Choose the beach over the pool!! Shame cos this hotel is in a great location and was fantastic previously..

We enjoyed our stay at Golden Star, which is located in a quiet area just a few hundred metres from the main square of Thira. The hotel provided complimentary transport from the port when we arrived and to the airport when we left, good service. It’s a nice and clean hotel with friendly staff. Breakfast was ok, but the only type of bread was white toasted bread and the juice (concentrate base) was not so tasty. The pool and the pool area were very good. The room was quite small, but it’s ok for a few days. Wifi connection in the room worked well.

We stayed at the Golden Star for 3 nights in June with our two boys. The hotel was just great, breakfast was wonderful, the view from our rooms was amazing watching the sunrise and the pool was beautiful and clean. The location is great just a short walk to the centre of Fira. The most outstanding part of this hotel is Katherine (Katarina) she was the most helpful, informative and kind young lady we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with on all of our Europe travels, you will not find a lovlier lady. Cost wise I don't think you could do better in Santorini when taking into account the location, service, breakfast, view and swimming pool. Our price included transfers from the port when we arrived and to the airport when we left. If I was forced to try and find a negative I couldn't. Highly recommended.

Stayed 3 days at the Golden Star. Its a lovely hotel, very close to the centre of Fira (5 minutes to the main square).
They will pick up and drop off to the port and airport, and the staff are so helpful and friendly.
The hotel is clean, the pool area is great. The rooms are fine, have fridges and some of the best aircon I have known. The wifi is great too, very good signal in our room anyway. The rooms are done out in traditional Greek style. They might be a bit small if you are staying for a week or so, but we found it fine for 3 days. I think most Greek hotel rooms are smallish anyway.
All in all a lovely little hotel, I would stay there again if I went back to Santorini

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool would be nice

I really enjoyed my stay here, the location is perfect right in Fira where you really want to stay. We had complimentary airport transfers, breakfast included - a simple breakfast however all you really need. The rooms are really basic however you get past that aspect by all the other good points. We used the internet for free too which was great. And the owner is soooooo sweet! She is really helpful and really really friendy - you can tell she really cares for all her guests! Also the pool and sunbaking area is really good, after the beach every day I would chill here for an hour before dinner!

we found the hotel at the port where we met the owner's son. It's a family business hotel, it's clean, quiet, fresh renewed (not rooms' fornitures, but they're really ok) with huge rooms and a very nice swimming pool. it's very close to the city center, 3 minutes of walk. all the people we met has been very kind and helpful with us and, when we left the room, we had free luggage dept and a free transport to the port.
important: try to get the room without intermediation (internet booking & c), the best way is to talk directly with them.
ciao Catarina, thanks for all!
