“Comfortable, Relaxing, Quiet and Excellent Value for Money”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We stayed in Pension George last week. Our room had its own sun terrace, with a view of the lovely garden and courtyard. The pool is clean and sun loungers are plentiful. There is wifi everywhere. Bed linen is changed each day. we arrived to fresh towels on our bed on arrival. Dimitri picked us up and dropped is back to the port late at night so we could fetch our ferry, at no extra chare. You will be looked after very well if you choose to stay here. There is a little shop atound the corner where you can pick up all you need for a self catering stay. Fira is a 10-15 minute walk or 2 minutes on the scooter we hired. It is packed full of restraints bars and shops. Being centrally located we saw everything there is to see on the magnificent island of Santorini. We will be returning and recommending Pension George to all our friends and family.

We stayed at the Pension George for a week in August 2013 on recommendation from a friend. We had a studio on the top floor with 2 balconies overlooking the sea. It is in the middle of the island which was smaller than we expected. The free transfer to and from the accommodation was wonderful comapred to the usual coach transfer. Free bottle of wine in the spotless room and linen chenged daily. We hired a car so got to see all of this pretty island.
The swimming pool is lovely and plenty of sunbeds and walling distance to the local shop and restaurants. Helen was very helpful and friendly as were all her family and it was nice to have an english owner to answer all my daft questions. A truly memorable holiday and I highly recommend these apartments

Ok so the staff was surprisingly helpful and nice. The rooms were very clean. The location is pretty much right in the center of the island which is great. If you get a quad it takes about 30 minutes to get to the ends of the island. It's about 5 minutes away from an amazing black sand beach. The only downfall to the room was there was no tv, but that's just me. If you stay anywhere on the island go see the lighthouse!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Pension George just a few days ago. The premises are beautiful with bougainvillea and a lovely swimming pool. Walking distance to restaurants, shops, laundry, scooter hire. They offer free transfers from airport/port, and we were given a complimentary bottle of wine which was a nice little surprise.

Helen and her daughter were very helpful and informative in regards to the tours on offer and general tips and advice whilst exploring the island.

On our last day we bought a last minute ferry ticket to Ios only 1 hr prior to departure. They did everything to help us get our ferry, and George saved the day and drove us down to the port and we made it!! Thank you again.

The only negatives were in regards to the room. We were given a room down the bottom I think where the dorm rooms are so our room was a bit gloomy and our balcony had no view. That could be due to booking through an online company or simply booking in peak time at last minute :) the pillows in our room weren't great and could do with replacing, its also nice having 2 pillows each, rather than just one, as more comfortable for reading etc. But with the right room like the ones with balconies overlooking the pool your stay would be top top!

We stayed here on our return trip from Greece to Spain. We were picked up at the Port and the owners arranged for us to be taken to the airport at 1:00 a.m. To catch our flight back from Santorini to Barcelona. Our room was quiet, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hotel is within minutes of the center of the main town, Fira, in Santorini. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. I will definitely stay here again!

We stayed here for a week and couldn't fault Pension George. They provide a complementary airport shuttle which is really great - the Pension itself is beautiful - lovely pool, great room with kitchenette, pretty terrace and a/c.
Helen was really helpful with recommendations and directions, super friendly and generous with her time. Just a short walk from Thira, fifteen mins. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

My husband and I spent a week at Pension George in June.
It is a family owned business run by Georgios and his English wife Helen,
both of whom went out of their way to make our stay an unforgettable experience. Our room was spotless and there is a beautiful pool and courtyard area to relax. If you prefer to be a bit nearer the beach, there are also stunning beach apartments set in beautiful surroundings.
Highly recommended.
