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

3 nights at the Galini. Overall opinion: disappointed. Location is great. Fira and Oia are the main towns in Santorini, but they are also extremely busy and swarming with tourists. Firastefani where Galini is located is in between the two and a perfect little quiet spot. For dinner there are several options or you can take the 10 minute walk... More

The location is in firostefani a quiet neighborhood right along the caldera ten minute walk from fira along the caldera simply amazing and 15 min from Oia driving. The view from the balcony is to die for, sunsets right in front of you ever night (look at the pictures, simply amazing). There a parking lot a few steps away for... More

Location is very important for Santorini as often you have to climb up/go down to your hotel and some of them are not easy to reach. Hotel Galini is just in the centre of Firostefani, next to Agios Gerasimos church where taxi and buses pick you up. The hotel is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Views - yes, they have...

Just the best place to stay. Near the best Italian in Greece (cantuccio), very close to Fira but very quite, with the best view, near a public parking area and with a wonderful bar. The only problem is that it is a lit bit expensive for the quality of the rooms. 150€ plus breakfast for sea view room in September... More

My sisters, mother and niece were treated to a marvelous view and wonderful hospitality. Ideally located just outside of the busy Fira area. We were in Greece to celebrate my mothers 87th birthday. It could not have been any better. Thank you so much for making or stay so special.

This is the place to stay in Santorini. Hotel Galini has been run by the same family for many many decades, and Lefteris and Labrini Roussos are two of the most beautiful people you will meet in Greece. The rooms are decorated to complement the view over the caldera (volcano). Absolute peace with a balcony. It is the dream that... More

Although we did not stay at this hotel, we ate several breakfast there on a couple of occassions. They made the best eggs and bacon, with amazing coffee. The staff here are delightful, especially the lady that runs the cafe. Nothing was a problem, and if not on the menu, she could still make it! The views are breathtaking and... More

We only had time to stop for a coffee in the cafe but what a spot. The view across the Caldera is amazing. On the roof of the cafe is a is two chairs and a small table a must for a photograph. The cake was a delight and the coffee exceptional.
