    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!
