Room was ok, fan in the bathroom was very noisy. Breakfast was additional but good. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. DVD player in the room and DVDs at reception to borrow. It took 10 minutes to walk into town which was up steep streets with little light. I wouldn't recommend this place if you have children with you... More

Staff were all very friendly and helpful. I'd recommend paying for them to have someone pick you up at the airport as it would have been hard to get to the hotel from the bus depot being unfamiliar with the area. The main road your have to take as a little scary walking as it was narrow and had no... More

I was fortunate to get a great deal in this small hotel minutes away (on foot) from Fira(the capital) Upon arrival I was upgraded to a larger room with a balcony. I am only assume it was because it was low season and they had availability. Nevertheless, I appreciated the gesture. I was greeted and given some tips on where... More

After getting dropped off at the ferry port and taking the bus into Fira town centre you find yourself at a loss to where you are going. A pick up service from the bus centre would be good as with suitcases etc it is quite far to walk - especially on the way back to the bus station (yes I... More

Nice, clean rooms, not far from centre of Fira. Very helpful and nice personel, we got much useful tips about Santorini. Hotel building is also beuatiful, surrounded by palm trees. Kitchen in room was well equipped.

The staff at Galatia Villas is helpful and kind. I am a young traveler (22) and I was with my younger brother (18). The staff made maps and suggestions for us for the duration of our stay so that we could get the most out of Santorini. The rooms are renovated, clean, and most have spectacular oceans views. The hotel... More

This hotel in Fira, Santorini is probably no better nor worse than any other in this area. On the positive side, it has an OK staff, OK rooms and is within walking distance of Fira...which, truth to tell, is pretty much a tourist trap, Disney junk-fest. On the positive side it is WAY more affordable than Oia on the northern... More

Although a little tricky to find, this is a charming little set of apartments. It has a tiny swimming pool and some of the apartments border it. The Hotel staff, in particular Argiris, was very helpful. TIP: airport transfers by taxi are very expensive. Fira is only about 5-6km from Fira for which taxis charge €20+. There is a bus... More

We had a studio apartment at Galatia and were very impressed with the cleanliness, the spaciousness of the room (the bathroom was on the small side) and the super affordable price. Would recommend if you are on a budget holiday but like somewhere nice.

Pros: - staff was friendly as we got in very early (6:30am) before the room was ready so they gave us a map and showed us where to go and do the "must see" - we got upgraded for free to a studio with kitchenette (no stove) and lots of room. Room was super clean and has all the basic... More
