What a wonderful stay at Hotel Galini. From the moment we arrived we were treated with smiles from all staff. The hotel has such warmth, especially as it is a family operated business. Christina was fantastic, she went out of her way to help us multiple times!! Thank-you so much :) One excellent bonus is the daily Galini newsletter which... More

My husband and I recently spent 6 nights at Hotel Galini while in Santorini -- and we had a wonderful time. Cristina and her family were so kind and helpful from our first email to check out. We actually stayed in 3 different rooms while we were there -- a caldera view room with a balcony, the junior villa, and... More

Because of the popularity of this hotel we could only stay here one night, which is why we ended up at the other hotel, which was lousy. This hotel is perfectly clean and the interior design choices impeccable-- simple, but elegant. Nice-sized bathroom and bedroom with a wonderful balcony and view. If they had a pool, I would have given... More

My girlfriend and I had a one night stay in santorini during our holiday in Crete and booked just before we came out. All communication with the hotel was through Christina and she organised port pick up for us on arrival from Crete. Once there, we were both gobsmacked by the view from the hotel, which was spectacular. Christina then... More

Being lucky enough to travel the world I get to stay in many beautiful hotels. From the moment I arrived at Hotel Galini, Christina and her family were the perfect hosts. Nothing was too much to ask of them. Their extensive knowledge of the island was very informative and made planning easy. Breakfast each morning was more than enough and... More

During early June this year my wife and I visited the café at Galini, whilst staying elsewhere in Fira. The view was spectacular and staff friendly. We enjoyed a drink on two occasions and would recommend the classic "drink on small table with fantastic view behind" photograph, using the single table and chair(s) set up on a small roof area,...

Thank you Christina and the rest of the Galini staff!!!! After a bad experience in Athens, Hotel Galini and Christina feel like a God send. Christina was so patient with me and she always answered all my emails & was extremely helpful. "Help me Christina!" Became my mantra when times got hard. Her father even went out of his way... More

We were stranded in Firostefani as the hotel we originally booked decided not to wait for us (late arrival). Some very friendly and helpful people put us in contact with the owner of Hotel Galini and we were able to check in at 1a.m. Great location. The view of the Caldera was spectacular. We had an excellent breakfast with coffee,... More

If you have dreamed about staying on a cliff side hotel with a balcony that overlooks Santorini (just like all of the travel photos) this is the hotel where you must stay. It is located in Firostefani, in the best location in town. You are minutes from everything. The rooms a perfectly clean, and the owners are charming people. The... More
