“Nice little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2012

I arrived by ferry, and someone from the hotel just happened to be at the port. I was planning on staying here anyway, but don't like to book ahead (I travel in off season). Anyway, everything I needed was provided by them. They have internet cafe and wifi. I was able to rent a 4 wheeler from them at a more then fair price. The room was great with a little kitchen. I ended up getting stranded by weather for a total of 5 days on Santorini and 2 of the days basically stuck in the room. They took VERY good care of me, even ordering food delivery one night as I was unable to get out due to rain and wind. I think I was 1 of 2 guests at one point so the high season you probably won't get quite the personal attention, but they are the type of people that will do whatever they can to make your stay comfortable. I loved being close to the beaches and it's easy to get to the main tourist spots from here. Also there is a 24 hour bakery just a block away with coffee. This was the perfect way to start my month of traveling!

Room Tip: From my private room on the bottom floor I was able to get wifi in the room!

Had a great time on Santorini, part of it was because of the close-to-perfect appartment I had at Katerina and John's. I had a private appartment with basic beds, AC, kitchen and shower. But all worked the way it should and was clean. Also had airport pick-up & drop-off, it was only a 5 min. walk to the beach, pool right in front of my door, 24 hr. bakery, supermarket and ATM across the street, internet-café and scooter/quad-rental next door.

And all of that for an incredible low price. I'd go right back there if I could!

The location was excellent, great town, walking distance to everywhere, clean rooms, very safe, friendly guests, and the service was truly amazing!!! Starting from free ferry pick up, based on when you arrive. On the return there was a ferry cancelation, so the hotel, extremeley nice of them helped us make all the phone calls/ internet seach for the ferry and flight changes. They drove us into the city for the travel agency to get reimbursed on the canceled ferry and then to the airport, and even a stoped at the pharmacy for a minor skin rash. They had nothing to do with the ferry cancelation, but they really went above and beyond to help us. We are SO grateful, in particular to Rich. They also have internet cafe and scooter rentals on the spot, convenient and cheaper than anywhere else.

Spent 2 weeks at Katerina and Johns and found it very comfortable. The rooms are very simple but so convinient if you are travelling on a budget as there is a full kitchen. Bathroom is one of the more spacious ones I saw in Perissa... Would have been happy to spend the whole working summer here if the rooms were able to stay within our budget (they obviously increase for peak season) Katerina and John are both lovely generous people. Swimming pool is def a bonus for those hot greek summer days! Located right next to the internet cafe and the bike rental place... and only a few minutes walk to the supermarket. 5 minute walk to the beach and close to all the bars and restuarants. Great place

First of all K&J is not a real hotel, but is worse than youth hostel! The sign say: ROOM TO LET! incredibile! no breakfast included, if you wish you can add it with an extra charge of 6,00 euros!!! incredile! the bakery in front with 6,00 euros can give you a real lunch! Internet 2,00 euros per hour. No real shower. Shower was not fixed to the wall, you have to wash yourself with one hand only, believe me, is not so funn y! Specially for my girlfriend who has long hair. No shower box neither curtains, so means, that every day the floor was completely wet and dirty, cause they clean the room every 2 days! Lack of maintenance. I tried to throw the liquid soap which was completely empy, and I found it again, on the sink, obviously still empty! Fortunately everybody has been very kind and helpful but, you can consider that is not enough for a holydays!

Katerina and Johns is very basic, rooms are kind of dorm like, our twin room also had a kitchenette which was great. Lovely outdoor area for sitting around with a very clean pool. Great resturant up the road about 200m and a supermarket just over and up the road. You can get cheap internet next door where you can also hire a quad bike really cheaply. Great service. Would definitly reccomend!
