Awesome place, peaceful, clean and with an amazing staff. The staff is going to help you with all the request you have, they really kind and available for them guests. The location is perfect, 2 min. by quad-bike from the Imerovigli’s Town, 10 min. from Fira, and 15-20 min. from Oia - just perfect. Enjoyed the morning breakfast who changes day by day. The pool view is really good and really clean. If we will have the possibility to go back to Santorini we could choose again Golden East! Thanks y’all.
We can not say enough of the Golden East family-run lodging and their great hospitality is exceptional.Nathalie and her father were heaven-set and so accommodating to our needs.Their warmth and first-class service to detail provided a memorable experience to celebrate our 25th anniversary.A grand breakfast every morning is delivered to your room or arched porched overlooking the golden sunrise ocean.The environment is lusciously landscaped beautifully for such an arid island. Wonderful!The location was perfect to be away from all the tourist crowds, yet the best accessibility to walk both Oia and Fira.Inter-island bus service is located close just down the street. No need for a rental car.Large pool for lap swimming and enjoying the pristine view every day and night.We were privileged to meet a famous opera singer also visiting the Golde East!We are definitely coming back Thanks to Nathalie and father!
My experience was fantastic, the location, facilities and service were amazing. The stuff were incredible and very helpful, always willing to help for our transport around the island. Everything nice, clean and the pool was magnificent.
Couldn't be happier with my stay at nataly & Katrins!! Nataly and her father costas were present upon my arrival and greeted me warmly. My room was lovely and cosy and had a lovely sea view! Breakfast available for €10 and set me up well for the day! Very hospitable and willing to help at all times :) would definitely recommend to all - worth having a car as walking along the busy road is a little dangerous as barely any footpaths in santorini anywhere!! But nevertheless a short walk from the views of the caldera and oia and a short car ride to thira! Enjoyable stay and would come again!!
We stayed at Golden East Imerovigli end of July 2021 for four nights. We truly enjoyed.We booked the honeymoon suite (room) which was super spacious with a massive sofa and all amenities you may want (french press for coffee, absolute great!).The hotel is really beautiful, quiet, friendly staff (family owned). And very clean. They do only have 7 rooms (we stayed in #7 just next to the pool.Breakfast is served after you order either at the pool or on your terrace. It's nice, tasty and changes every day.The price you pay is amazing for what you get. But therefore, the location is not like "in the city". You really have to like to walk or have a rent a car. We did not have a rent a car, but love to walk so for us it was not a problem to walk to Thera (approx. 1 hour) up and down hills but this is not for everyone. There is a bus stop around 500m from the hotel but due to a circle-line, when you want to go to Thera you always first have to go via Oia which again makes the trip take around one hour so we did something good for our body and walked. Last bus at night also around 22.30 (depending on season, weekday or weekend I believe)Apparently food delivery is possible but we did not have a menu but you can ask Nataly, one of the owners. She also assisted with PCR-test booking in Thera, they sell excursions, rent a cars etc. Always helpful.Keep the location also in mind when you want a grocery (water, snacks) you must walk to Imerovigli village 20min uphill and back. Again, for us it was ok, but do not be surprised if you expected different.View of hotel is NOT to Caldera but airport/Kamari side of the island. Keep also in mind that there are electricity lines in front of the hotel/pool area. The photos you see online are photo-shopped. Ok for us, but keep it in mind :) Also there is a road just below the hotel which is used by the bus and trucks as well. We did not feel disturbed by the sound.But: compared to other hotels in the area, Golden East beats them all for the price. It is really beautiful, clean and quiet and still in walking distance to Thera. If you just walk like 500m next to the famous Cavo Tagoo hotel you have the Caldera view for sunset. What else you want! :)Wifi at the hotel is fabulous, different networks for hotel room, pool area etc.We actually did a self-check-in. Staff is onside mainly in the mornings. Make sure they have your contact details.We can definitely recommend the hotel and will come back if one day again in Santorini.
We stayed for 6 nights at Golden East Hotel in Oct. The hotel is charming and lovely.You can choose the breakfast from the list and it's nice to have it at private terrace. The swimming pool was also a nice looking although I didn't go in, but my daughter enjoyed sitting at the pool side.Imerovigli is easy to access to Thira (Fira) and Oia. We did a nice walking for 45 mins to get to Thira and nearly 2 hours walking to Oia on another day. If you drive, it took only 10 min to Thia and 20 min to Oia. Usually you can reach to any places in around 20 minutes by car. Kamari beach and Pygros were also beautiful and highly recommend to visit these places. I think it is very convenient location to see entire island.This hotel is the back side of the beautiful sea view, so you can't see the amazing view from the hotel although you can see the other side of sea view. If you want to see the special view (sun set) from the hotel, you can find the hotel on the other side of the road, but you have to pay more than double or triple the price. Since we were out most of the days and not the type of people who stay at the hotel for the most of days, it was perfect for us for this lovely hotel for this reasonable price.The highlight and the reason for the 5 stars are hotel staffs, especially the hotel manager, Natalie and her father. They are really nice people and very helpful. You don't find that kind of genuinely warm-hearted people easily. They are friendly and want to help. I'm really touched by their kindness and I really feel great to meet them.
We loved Nataly’s kindness. We had few problems with the quad rent or with the trasport to the port and she was super nice and always there to help.The little villas are very lovely arranged and we appreciated a lot the breakfast served to the room or directly at the pool. The pool was always open for us also after the check out and Natale kept our luggages to enjoy Santorini till the last minute. Vote 10!
Its nice property just 5 minutes walk for Caldera view. You can also enjoy the sunrise from the other side of the island. Hosts are great and offered help to book taxi and day tour.
The views were breath taking just from our location. The breakfast is excellent, the Host is so so wonderful, she ensures you maximize your experience..Excellent tips on beaches, food , historical sites, very accommodating.
We liked just everything, super welcoming people and great place to stay, gret positive vibs, great location to enjoy your quite but at the same time close to everything you need... ideal to enjoy a nice break in Santorini, we will definitively go again and recommend it!!!
