10/10 Exceptional

Exceeding our expectations!
Location, Location, Location! Galini Hotel is located in the best location on Santorini, in Fiostefani, which is adjacent to Fira, the Island's capital. Not so crowded but within walking distance. The views are spectacular. Galini's team is very friendly and helpful, from the manager, through the receptionists to the housekeeper. It is highly recommended! Not cheap, but good value.

Five start hotel standard with great location!
This place is amazing! The location is so convenient and walkable to both Fira and Imerovigli. The walk way to both in the afternoon will have fabulous sunset view. There are plenty restaurants, bars and cafe nearby. Actually the Galini cafe is one of the best in the area with great sea view. We were living in the junior village. The village is so good 5-start hotel standard equipped. We stayed in three different village during the holiday. This villa is not the most expensive one but it is the one best in our view. The room is so comfortable and clean. We have been serving breakfast in our balcony every morning. You can choose what you like to have for your breakfast, such as home made omelette with your own choice of filling, fresh fruit salad, bread and jam, tea and coffee, fresh made juice of your choice, greek yogurt with different topping and etc. Absolutely five start hotel standard. Highly recommend!!!

Galini is an absolute steal! We had the most incredible balcony view right in front of the sunset and we’re surrounded by the classic white and blue buildings but also in the heart of the sea. The staff were incredible as well. This is the perfect hotel for an authentic and perfect Santorini experience.

Can't say enough good things about our stay at Galini. The location was perfect for us - in Firostefani, so not as hectic as Thira, but still close to everything. We stayed in the Junior Suite - every part of the room was spotless and comfortable and the views were amazing. Everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay at Galini Hotel again given the chance.
