“Perfect location, great price, wonderful people”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

I stayed in Summer Time Pension for five nights while I was in Santorini, and I could not be happier with my choice. First of all, the location could not be better. It is extremely centrally located, being only a 3-5 minute walk from the town center and bus station. Keep in mind how important this is when you're staying out at the clubs until 5 a.m. The rooms were adorable and spacious with their bright colors, comfortable beds, and outdoor space. We easily fit three girls with large suitcases (which tend to explode anywhere we go) in a triple room and did not feel crowded. Plus, the wi-fi worked perfectly the entirety of our stay. For the space and location, the price cannot be beat.
Most importantly, the people were absolutely lovely and helpful. Christina, who is there from 4 - 9 p.m., is just wonderful. When we arrived she sat down with us and a map of the island and circled all of the beaches and sites we should visit and gave us a full list of her personal restaurant recommendations. She could not have possibly been more helpful.
My only advice is to skip the breakfast, simply because you can get inexpensive coffee and pastries pretty much anywhere. With the price, the location, and the service you really cannot get a better value. Enjoy!

The hotel is centrally located in Fira, 5 minutes walking distance from the caldera. The hotel is not facing the caldera, but it is so close that one should not mind.

The room was spacious and the bathroom was modern and relatively spacious (recently renovated I suspect). The room was cleaned every day and the owner of these rooms was very helpful with information for nice beached and restaurants! There was free wi-fi which was working perfectly. Breakfast was available at an extra change, but we preferred to walk to cafes at the calder and enjoy a norning coffee there!

Also, the hotel is very close to the central bus station and off the main road of fira, so it is relatively easy to go to the other villages of the island. If you have a car, you can park for free near the hotel (no designated parking area for the hotel, but there are spaces to park your car in the street or free parking lots).

I stayed at Summer Time Pension to relax and getting aound visiting the whole Santorini island.
The position is perfect to see everything in Fira and it is very close to the bus station as well, so you can easily reach all the other villages.
But, above all, the welcome I received by the owner of the Pension was simply marvellous; she took me from the airport to the Pension and back again, at the end of holiday, from the Pension to the airport. She is really very nice and helpful for every aspect of your stay.
The room I had was very large and confortable and kept perfectly clean.
Last, but not least, the price was very reasonable, probably for the low period.
Definitely recommended!

Second year back to this hotel, staff are so helpful, rooms are big and very clean. For the price you pay I was do impressed. Roof top area is adorable and the location is perfect. You have everything you need near the hotel and it is close to all the public transport. Would definitely stay here again :)

We have stayed there with a group of 8 and the owner provided us a floor with 4 rooms just for us. Every room is diffrent from each other, and ours had a small bathroom with a tiny shower. Other than that, the room was pleasant and it was cleaned everyday. The other rooms had bigger bathroom, but one of it had an unpleasant smell in it.

The owner was nice and helpful. There was a so called jacuzzi at the roof but it was not so charming at all. Dont expect anything from it.

We didnt take breakfast so I dont have any idea about it but there are very good bakeries in Fira center, so you can also try them.

The location was great, just a few minutes walking distance from the Fira center, where you can find all the best bars and clubs in Santorini. It is also 5 minutes walking distance from Fira main bus station. Still, we didnt feel disturbed about the noise coming from outside.

I thinknthat summer time pension has put the bar too high for us.. I dont think that on the rest pf our trip we can have better service and better overall hotel.

The rooms were spacious enough an very clean, and well decorated.
The jacuzzi on the roof is just amazing and a great place for relaxation..
The service is top notch, the owner, Eleftheria is just making sure all the time that we are satisfied and we have everything we need. The last day, oir ferry was 8 hours late, so we emptied the room but she provided us with a bathroom and shower in case we went to the beach and we need to shower.
The hotel is 3 minutes walk from the main square is santorini.
We even recommended something o reduce the door closing noise amd the owner did the modification to all rooms on the same day, talk about service and client satisfaction!!
The afternoon lady at te reception, Christina is also amazing and gives all the necessary info and help.
Overall, i would vook their again if i go to santorini again

I went with 5 girlfriends and we all love it!!! The location is perfect, just a few steps from the main street and the bus station, the breakfast is delicious (with muffins and feta cheese sandwiches), the view of the hotel is amazing!!! The owner of the pension is so lovely, treated us like their own children!!! If someday I come back to Santorini, I´ll be there again!! If you want to be in a cheap place and feel at home, that´s the place to be!!!
