Reviewed 4 July 2013

Hotel in excellent position near to busy Fira but in quiet location. Hotel very clean and comfortable, fresh sheets and towels every day, staff friendly and welcoming. Nice pick up service from airport.

Excellent centrally located hotel close to all local amenities. Bars, restaurants, shops and the caldera were all 5 minutes walk away up a not-too-steep incline. The bus station was 10 minutes walk away and from there you can get to pretty much anywhere on the island. I had a room facing the east overlooking the pool and the east coast of the island with a balcony. The large pool area was very clean with comfortable sunbeds and chairs around the pool side. I took a boat trip around the caldera and neighbouring islands which Katherine at reception organised for me which was just fantastic.The hotel was also equipped with Wi-Fi and my room had air conditioning (a definite must have!) and a safe at no extra cost. I contacted the hotel before I flew out and was picked up on arrival and taken back to the airport at the end of my stay free of charge. All in all an absolutely fantastic hotel that I would have no hesitation in recommending! Thank you Katherine and team for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: East facing rooms on the first or second floor give you a pool and sea view. If you want a good plac...

The hotel is in a great location, very near to the centre and the bus stop. It's a walking distance from the clubs and restaurants. As, well, across the main street you find a shop called Cheap and Chic which sells amazing body oils, I LOVED IT! The hotel has a very nice pool, good rooms with balcony, friendly staff... (only the breakfast is not worthy the value), all the rest I really recommend...

Room Tip: they re all much the same, they are nice

Pick up & drop off service was very good.
Pool / pool area was very good.
Rooms were good - but could do with some updating - eg key safes / bathrooms.
Location good - not too far - say 300m 5 mins to bus stop/taxis but up hill & 150m to start of Fira town area.
Staff were welcoming & helpful.
WiFi slow - but found this in most places we stayed
Breakfasts were limited in choice - try first & if not satisfied - try somewhere else close by instead on some days perhaps.
Overall - good value for money - a few improvements could make this even better.

Room Tip: Had a ground floor room - very nice for pool access.

I have stayed at the Golden Star Hotel for three days. I lived at the floor with the pool right in front of my room. I love reading at the pool side. The room is nicely decorated. The location is really good. It takes just 5 min to walk to the bus terminal and the main street. I arrived at Santorini by ferry and they picked me up there at the pier. They also drove me back to the pier at midnight the day i left even though I insisted it was too late to drive and I could take the bus. At the end of my trip, I have lost the ferry ticket. Katherine and the helpers were very kind to help finding it. They also sell the tickets of the boat trips that bring you to the volcano and hot spring.

Room Tip: no seaview at the pool floor but the room is still great.

I got a lovely room with a beautiful balcony for cheap price! Just 10-15 minutes walk from the bus station and the center of Fira. The place is quiet and peaceful. Besides, they gave me a free shuttle to the airport at 4:30 am! The driver woke up at 4 am only for me! What a great service!! I wish I could stayed there one more night. I'll definitely come buck!!

Hotel Golden Star worked great for our three days on Santorini in early June 2013. A short walk to the cauldron and sunset watching. Katherine was very helpful and was always smiling. Short walk to the busses for getting around the island.
