This is an okay place to stay if you're on a strict budget (I'm talking gap year student) and if you're going to be out all of the time. The best part about the hotel is the location, it's literally just a few minutes walk to the main square in Fira. However, having now been to Fira, I can see...

there are no free shuttle to/from airport or pier which was advertised and stated in the hotel website, they charge 15 euros each way.That was the reason why I chose that hotel. the room is ok but very small.

Breakfast is just ok. After finishing first coffee the second one on offer was instant. Rooms are tired but clean and made up daily. Outdoor pool is very inviting and the view from the balcony was nice. Overpriced compared to other parts of Greece. I guess it's the real estate. Close to central but quiet.

We stayed in this place for 4 nights Golden Star it's very very good place and nice people and i think they have the biggest pool in the town and that it was very good for us ... for a young couple. It's very near with the centre just 5 min walk from the hotel so we have a good...

Recently stayed at the Golden Star, and what a waste of money. I went with an open mind; however this hotel was a let down. At check in, no one checked documents, and just handed us our key, and just blankly stared at us. We went to the room, it had a dirty feeling, and was very dark and smelly,...

Very central hotel, walking distance to the centre of fira, great for hiring a car since it has a car park which is a big plus in fira. Simple Greek style room but sufficient for us who spent most of the time outdoors. Nice pool!!

Basic, basic, accommodation. Not what you see on the Internet. Rooms need a refurbishment, basic and depressing. Property not painted in traditional blue & white colours as seen on Internet. Bar pool not operational. The pool is the only nice thing about the property apart from its location. Staff apathetic and not engaging with visitors as you would expect on...

The wifi is terrible but really who cares your in Santorini and if you really need wifi there in all the cafes and restaurants! The room was small but cozy the pool looked beautiful I didn't get to swim because it was cold but I'm sure in the summer it's nice to swim in. They allowed us to check in...

Golden Star is at the heart of Fira just a five-minute walk from the Caldera - enough to escape the hustle and bustle of the centre. It offers a view of the sea on the other side of the island. The rooms, although not very big, are clean and comfortable. The hotel also offers a parking space and functional Wi-Fi...
