“Perfect welcome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Pension George is spotlessly clean and in an excellent location....within walking distance of the capital from where you can catch a bus to most of the places on the island. The owners are very friendly and helpful....they will pick you up from the airport and give you a great welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there and the price is very reasonable. if you prefer to be nearer a beach they also have beach apartments too. Highly recommended.

The Pension George is beautiful including the rooms, courtyard, and pool. We were picked up free of charge from the port. Helen helped us plan our whole stay on this magical island. It is a close walk to Thira.

We stayed at Pension George for a week. We had a such a great time; Helen and her family were great hosts and available at all times for help. The breakfast was delicious and was served in the garden, facing the swimming pool.

Karterados is a great location - you can be in Thira (main town) in just 5 minutes by quad - highly recommended to rent to move around by the way! Just be wary of the police, they seem to target tourists at night.

Great service for a great price. George picked us up at the port free of charge. When we got to the pension it was very clean and Helen greeted us with a smile and lots of information. The family lives in the pension so it would be easy to reach them if you needed anything. Helen is more talkative than George but both are great. The pool is clean and well maintained and Helen helped us get a car t rent. In October or the low seasons I would suggest a car because it is a bit of walk especially since the roads are very narrow.

I would definitely recommend this to friends, family's, couples. Everyone.

We were two couples and stayed at Pension George for 4 days and we had a wonderfull time. Pension George is a family pension with great hospitality. Helen the owner helped us with renting a car by calling an extremely nice young guy who just established his ren-a-car company named Russos. He owns new cars and was extremely fair and polite (russosrentals@yahoo.com) . After 3 days we took the Ferry to Naxos (very recommended) and stayed there for 2 days. Helen help us by calling Dimitri, owner of a very nice hotel there (Anixis) who waited for us at the port . We returned back to George pension to have our last night before flying back. They drove us From the Airport and back , and from the Ferry port and back .They were happy to help us with anything, anytime. Pension George are located in Karteradhos, only 15-20 minutes by foot from Fira. The location is great and one can take bus to Kamari (wonderfull beach) and IOA (most beuatiful city in Santorini) just for 1.6 EUR. The hotel is very clean, and the rooms and hotel area is nice including a lovely pool area with sunbeds. It is highly recommend and we would love to come back!

Helen and George were very hospitable; we loved our room (2 kids and 2 adults) with 4 beds; very clean; nice pool, close to various sights; need a car to drive out to Oia. Helen assisted with volcano trip (was fabulous); would definitely go back!

I think that this is a fabulous pension. It is away from the madding crowd, but accessible to all.
Fab pool. Choice between studios that sleep up to 4. Great for mum and dad plus kids.
Can be 4 beds, for teenagers
Room 16 was where we stayed and it was fab. Great balcony over looking the pool but not visible to all.
Hosts George, who picks you up and returns you to the airport. And Helen who speaks fluent English as that is her native tongue.
Are wonderful they can't do enough to help.
There was a total of 11 of us ranging in age from 11 to 54. And we all had a great time.
A little walk about 150 mtrs, to catch the bus to either Thira, or Kamuari. Cost is 1.60 euros.
This is the third time my friend has stayed here.
Will stay again.
Lovely
