Close to town and transport.Posted Sep 2, 2013
Pros: close to everything.
Clean Hotel with big pool in heart of thira. Shops, cafes, transport only a minute away. The owner picked us up from airport as we arrived late, and assisted with all our outings in some way. Nothing was a problem.

Great Hotel!!Posted Aug 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
We had a great stay at Golden Star. The hotel was very nice. Great balcony over looking the pool with a sea view. Beautiful pool area. The staff was very nice and accommodating. We were picked up at the port and dropped off at the airport by a very sweet gentleman that worked for the hotel. He made you feel like you were visiting family when you met him. The hotel is so close to everything!!

Hotel near Fira town center with pool and sea viewPosted Jul 12, 2013
Pros: Balconies with views of pool and ocean.
Cons: Space in three-person room.
Location: Not far from Fira town center. Local buses provide transportation to the rest of the island, though we recommend making the few hour walk to Oia.
Hotel is a short walk from the Fira town center. Pool is a definite bonus if you are budgeting time to just relax while in Santorini. Hotel has views of the ocean, though it is far off in the distance and not the "picturesque" side of the island. Katherine, the owner, is helpful in orienting you to the town and the island; she is able to recommend places to eat and things to do, though, after our stay, we recommend doing your own research as well. Room was somewhat comfortable; for three it was entirely too small, though the balcony and pool made up for that somewhat. Ants were seen in the room.

Lovely room with a nice balcony!Posted Jun 19, 2013
I really enjoyed staying at Golden Star! If you are seeking for a relaxing resort vacation without spending a lot of money, you should stay at this hotel! Thank you for giving me a free ride to the airport at 4 in the morning! The driver was super nice!!

A hidden jewelPosted May 21, 2013
Pros: Staff and location
Location: Perfect to enjoy Fira's sunsets and sunrises and for a quiet and peaceful stay.
My stay at the Golden Star was one of the most relaxing stays I have had in a hotel during all my world travels for the following reasons: 1) Friendly and informative staff, especially Katrina 2) Away from the sometimes hectic tourist area of Fira but only 10 minutes walk to get there if you want it 3) Excellent view of the island, monastery on the mountain, and ocean 4) 5-7 minute walk to Central bus station where you board buses to destinations all over the island 5) 5 minute walk to laundry services and good restaurants and 6) Once again, even though it is a peaceful location, you can be in the center of Fira's shopping and nightlife district within 10-15 minute walk. They also provide a small inexpensive breakfast if you want. I recommend this for any singles, couples, or families looking for a relaxing place to stay in Santorini and still want to enjoy all the island has to offer.

The AC was not working properly! Had to open the balcony windows for air. The breakfast buffet did not have enough options to choose from, only cheese, ham, and bread, bread, bread... The good thing though was the service. Katerina, part-owner, was very accommodating and the shuttle driver to and from the hotel was also friendly. Overall, 60USD is not a good price.
