Everything was perfect. After a long day of travel we were greeted with a friendly smile and lots of information on what to do and see while were here in Santorini. Christina quickly had a porter whisk off our luggage and walk us to our villa (which is located separate from the hotel). It is tucked into the cliff side...

Fantastic place with a lovely sunset from balcony at room(!), great cafe on first floor, one of the best places to be at when sunset arrives. You see the Nea Kameni (vulcano) och the boats in the ocean from balcony. You can take the bus there, stops 100m from hotel. The bus also goes to Oia, takes aprx 30min. Close...

I stayed at the Hotel Galini for 3 nights last week and I can say, it was far better than I ever expected. It was located outside the busy Fira area but close enough to walk there in a matter of minutes. The hotel staff was also excellent. Upon my arrival, I was greeted with an attentive staff who was...

We have loved every minute of our stay here, from the amazing service, lovely room and delicious fresh food every morning at breakfast. I'd highly recommend staying here as you'll be well taken care of and nothing seems too much trouble. The views out of our room are spectacular and I'll be very sorry to leave this behind later today.

Our stay at Hotel Galini was incredible. The hotel grounds are styled beautifully, we fell in love with the interior styling in our room which had the most breathtaking views of the Caldera. The location was very central, only a 10 minute walk to Fira which was very enjoyable. The staff at reception were extremely helpful and the lengths they...

My boyfriend and I stayed in Oia in a prime location (also with sunset and volcano view, a few steps away from the castle) and Firostefani, and let me tell you that the sunsets we admired from our amazing balcony in Hotel Galini beats the one from Oia by far!

First of all, location wise, there are a couple of restaurants within eyesight of the hotel for whoever doesn't want to go far looking for food. For those with more time, it is only a short 10-15 min walk from Fira where there are plenty of other places to eat. Due to its placement, there is a beautiful view from...

This hotel is on the side of a cliff, with absolutely stunning views & sunsets. It has small terrace areas with sea views where even if you don't have a sea view room, you can sit. The staff are very friendly & helpful. The room was fine, it had a large double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, fridge & en-suite....
