Was nice to be picked up from the port although being dropped off would have been good to. Having one driver makes it difficult with boats and ferry timetables differing. Wifi was slow and often didn't connect. Pool area is lovely and staff can help sort activities and quad rental easily.


Hotel was outside the main town and a bit difficult to find, but made up for it in charm. Bus connection to Thira is within a few minutes walk and the hotel also organises bus trips to the port. Owners were very friendly. Pool was great. Lovely hotel!


Helen has been the kindest host, always doing her very best to accommodate us despite the busy season. The garden looks great and the swimming pool is amazing. Such a great place when one feels so looked after :)


Helen and her employees were amazing! Pension George had a nice homey feel to it, and was a nice place to relax. Location was a little far from town, but we rented ATVs and scooters so getting around was no problem! Would recommend renting some sort of vehicle as the island is very spaced out and takes a while to get from one town to another.


Really lovely people! Beautiful pool and had a nice time


Our stay at PG was lovely. It's a little bit outside of town, but verry conveniently located to a lot of bus lines for getting around the island. Plenty of mini markets, bakeries, etcetera within a 5 minute walk. Loved the quiet, secluded atmosphere. Helen and her staff were wonderful - my friend's birthday fell during our stay and Helen gifted her a bottle of wine.

Staying At Pension George was a wonderful experience. The owners and their family were accommodating, lovely and overwhelming helpful. I highly recommend this pension. Great location, bus just a few blocks away, walking distance to Fira, a fabulous bakery, coffee shop and most of all clean, comfortable rooms. I was traveling alone and never slept so well as I felt safe and taken care of. Returning in two years and will be staying with Helen and her lovely family. LOVED IT! Kathleen

Really nice budget hotel in Santorini. Helen was so nice and helpfull. This is a basic hotel and the price that we paid is really cheap (18 euros per bed). It s very cleanWe are 10 minutes walking to Fira and we rent a VTA to go all the island. The hotel find us cheap price for VTA and excellent cheap restaurants suggestions. We travelled on a budget and it was a perfect place for us! Better than a hostel because the area is very calm and safe. We had a small room with a balcony with sunset view
