Pansion Zaharoula Fira Reviews
Great value friendly pension in Thira Jul 03, 2013
This private little pension in Fira is about 600 meters from the bus station, that connects Fira to all other towns, beaches and interest points on the island. It's about seven minutes by foot. That's how much you need to be in the center of town as well. It's on the main street connecting Fira and Oia, so easy to find. Some have complained about the noise, but it didn't bother me.
Owners are a young Greek couple, so welcoming and friendly. They will take you for free to and from the bus station, port or airport. Tons of useful info about the island is provided and they will help you in any way they can in organizing your time on the island. They sell volcano tour tickets, or arrange other trips.
I had booked a single room, but upon arrival they upgraded me to a double, because it was free. This was really nice!
My room was big, and spotless clean. Nice decor, big bed, wardrobe, fridge, TV, AC, coffee machine.
Bathroom was big, but didn't have a regular shower, just a tab in the middle of the room. I had no problem with this, but it might be important to some people.
They also have a very beautiful garden with tables and chairs.
Free WiFi worked slow in the room but really good in the garden.
They will store you luggage if you need it.
There's free parking in front of their pension.
I enjoyed my stay here, and would recommend this place. It's a great value!
