The very warm welcome from Helen and George. Large room with balcony. Pool with plenty of sun loungers. Excellent facilities. The owners were always on hand to help - nothing was too much trouble.
We had a great stay at Pension George. Helen is very helpful and transfer to/from the port are really handy.
Pension George is an excellent place to stay. Very friendly and helpful owners. Highly recommended!
We stayed at Pension George in a double studio for 3 nights at the end of July. The room was spacious, having a mezzanine level where the bed was situated, which gave a lot more room in the kitchen/dining area. The kitchen was well equipped and suited out needs perfectly. There was also a nice balcony overlooking the pool. As the other reviews have stated, the room and hotel in general are very clean and well kept. The staff (Helen and her family) are very friendly and more than willing to help with any questions relating to Santorini/book daytrips etc. The pool area is very relaxing with plenty of sun loungers and was never too busy. There is a small local supermarket only a minute or so away and a bakery only slightly further up the road. The walk into Fira takes 10-15 mins and although slightly uphill it’s not challenging. Perhaps in the mid-day heat you might like to take the bus instead as we did on one occasion. The bus network on Santorini is good and we found all the main tourist destinations easily accessible. The bus stop is only a few mins walk from Pension George, on the way into Fira. We took a boat tour to the volcanic islands, hot springs and had a sunset view of Oia. We booked through Dakoutros Tours and can recommend the tour. Dakoutros are also the agents on Santorini for many of the ferry companies. If we go back to Santorini we would definitely stay at Pension George again and will recommend to family and friends. Pension George is great value for money (partly I think because it is not in Fira, which as I have said is not an issue) and a great base for exploring the island. They also offer free collection/drop off at the airport/ferry terminal which is a nice touch.
Pension George is a beautifully run family accommodation. Each person went out of their way to guide me to a restful, simple and yet interactive island holiday. With fresh figs off from the garden each morning with breakfast, it's truely a traditional Greek experience. Everyone was helpful, gracious and kind... Don't miss out on the gem!
Helen and George and their daughter Vivi and son-in-law Dimitris are lovely people, so helpful and kind and patient. It's no wonder people return again and again. Accommodation is quite basic, but Pension George is a quiet, peaceful retreat away from the rest of crowded, often-noisy (motorcycles, quad bikes everywhere) Santorini in August. Well-located just outside Fira (only one bus stop away) and all buses except the Oia bus pass through Karterados. There are some quaint little tavernas in the village and some good bakeries, particularly Erokritos, the traditional Cretan bakery up on the main road. Would recommend Pension George to others looking for simplicity, cleanliness, tranquility and warm-hearted hospitality.
Might be good to add a few parasols for a bit more shade around the pool. Mattress in my first room downstairs was hard but not firm, so not that comfortable. Preferred room upstairs -- brighter and mattress more comfortable.
Pension George is a nice hotel in the little (quaint) village of Karterados. Its pool was nice, Helen made lovely breakfasts and she and her family were happy to give us advice on day trips, what to see on Santorini and they organised our transfers from the port and to the airport. The pension is very close to a bus stop, which is strategically located for exploring the island.
Unfortunately, our room was a little dated and could do with a modernization. If you have back problems like one of us, you might find the beds and mattresses not comfortable. We walked a couple of times from Karterados to the town of Fira and back to the hotel. It's a 25 minutes' walk to the centre of Fira. Even though there's a footpath for most of the time, it's not a nice walk, also because it's a very busy road. We found the €1,60 bus a welcoming alternative.
Everyone at Pension George is so helpful and nice, especially Helen. They arranged to pick us up from the airport at 3:30 in the morning and dropped us off at the ferry at the end of out stay. Helen is so knowledgable about the island and the best spots to eat, beach, and watch the sunsets, and was always available to answer all our questions and help us in any way she could. The location is perfect, not a bad walk into Fira and a great hop off spot for the other main attractions to the island. Overall, wonderful stay.
The family who runs the hotel is excellent! The property is clean, nice, and very well run. Absolutely recommend to anyone going to Santorini looking for a good value!
Wifi not great.
Free transportation to and from port and airport. Spacious room with balcony. Quick service by the staff (which is just the owner family) who are really friendly and helpful. Beach towels provided (you cant take this as given everywhere) Great bakery just down the street. You can't get any better than this for the price.
Only problem was that the toilet flush pressure was a daily issue. Staff did help quickly though. If they can just fix this and the spotty wifi they would have a winner in their hands
Helen is the best host you can imagine.Helpful and nice in every way.Highly recommendable!
Helen is so firendly and helpful.
The wifi connection in rooms does not work smoothly.
Pleasant place to stay. Helpful staff,transfers to and from port and airport
Very nice friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere. Rooms spacious and very clean. Lovely pool. This is a place that is cared for and loved by the family that run it and it shows. A little haven in a beautiful island.
Helen and George are super friendly and very helpful. Don't miss this place!
Every thing is good!
Cozy, quaint and beautiful place with luxurious garden and pool area. Generous breakfast (you can make special orders) almost equivalent to buffet. Staff (family members) extremely helpful and kind. Close to bus station and traditional restaurants (cheaper than Thira). Highly recommended to everyone seeking a calm and comfortable place in Santorini.
Wifi signal is not accessible from room. Actually it's very hard to catch except in very specific locations. 15 minutes of walk from Thira (but that can be seen as a plus) Taking a shower soaks the whole bathroom (but that's typical of Greek hotels) No shampoo. Would have been nice to have a cold water bottle in bedroom upon arrival.
Friendly and helpful staff, transfers from the ferry,nice pool
Pension George is run by a family who take such great care of their guests. For instance they picked us up at the port when our ferry came in at 1:00 am and dropped us off at the airport and port when it was time to leave--with no extra cost! Karterados is a 15 minute walk to Firos --but if you are interested in the people of Santorini--Karterados is where many of them live. There are great tavernas--Savas is one-- close by that are cheap and have amazing food. We toured the island everyday but each night we went back home to Pension George and our neighborhood of Karterados.
They were overruned and practically ignored us
Pension George is a very nice, comfy, warm and relaxing place. The swimming pool is perfectly positioned. It is very close to Fira, capital of the island. Next to the pension there is a supermarket, bike rent, restaurant and bus stop. The staff is friendly and really helpful, available any time.
The wifi connection wasn't good in all the areas of the pension. The beach is a little far from the Pension but easy to reach as well with with pubblic tranpostation.
Friendliness and helpfulness of staff Pickup and dropoffs at airport and port Breakfast Swimming pool
Location was quiet and away from crowds of tourists in Fira. Only a 20 minute walk to Fira or 5 minute bus ride. The little village has retaurants if you don't want to go to Fira and of course cheaper! Helen the owner is an English woman married to a Greek so her English is perfect which can be handy!! She is also very helpful regardinf tours etc and they are very accommodating regarding pick up and drop offs to port or airport for free. The pool is lovely. I had a little studio that had cooking facilities if you really wanted to budget.
I wouldn't bother with the 6euro breakfast. It's continental which means bread, jam, yoghurt & coffe/ tea. There is a mini mart around corner or up the road a little restaurant you can get eggs etc for same price. Pillows are very flat and bath towels very rough!!
The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful with recommendations to explore the island and reserve tourist trips as well. The free transport to and from the hotel was really nice and helpful as well. The room was perfect with a great view of the ocean!
