Reviewed July 9, 2012

Our family stayed at Galatia Villas for three days. Spotless rooms and lovely and quiet surroundings. The donkeys stroll by in the mornings and evenings. Conveniently located about 15 minute walk to the main bus depot (i have short legs). Staff are very helpful and hospitable. You can even purchase boat trip tickets to the caldera from the reception desk. Price is very reasonable. You won't regret staying here.

We reached the hotel at 2:00 a.m., and the hotel kept the room for us. We find that the hotel is small but nice and comfortable, the boss and his family operate the hotel and they are very friendly, gave us many suggestions about travel.

Hotel was nice and the owner was very friendly and helpful. There's even a pool! Rooms were small, but still ok for two days stay.

No more than 10 minutes walking from the bus station,you can find little super markets, fresh fruits, car/motor renting and clinic on the way there, many good restaurants as well. Very convenient. Galatia Villas is certainly on the top of the hotels I've ever stayed. Big room, well-maitained furniture, pretty view, nice host family... My friend and I stayed 2 nights here, and we loved it! We so much enjoyed swimming in the small but cute pool after a crazy hot day of beach tour. I surely will recommend Galatia Villas to my friends and who wants a peaceful and relaxing vacation at Santorini.

Room Tip: Our room is facing to the swimming pool, I really like it.

The husband and I stayed at the Galatia Villas from the 9-11 June on a recent trip to Santorini. We arrived on a very early flight from Athens (6.30am) and I wasn't expecting to be able to leave our bags with the hotel, let alone check in. To our surprise and delight the owner was already up and checking guests in. He was very friendly and gave us tips on where to go, excursions and places to eat.
The hotel is in a good location as it is just 10 minutes walk from the town centre- you are not too far from the action but also guaranteed a good night's rest away from the bustling nightlife. It is also safe to walk back at night- we rented a car, but still needed to walk about 3 minutes to get to the hotel. There is a convenience store on the main road open until 10pm where you can get drinks and supplies.
The swimming pool was a real life saver as it got really hot towards the end of our stay. All in all we were very very happy and would definitely recommend Galatia Villas to anyone looking for reasonable and good quality accommodation.

This is an excellent hotel about 10 minutes walk from Fira town centre. I stayed there at the beginning of june for 3 days. The staff were warm and welcoming and gave me a map of Fira town centre and showed me the main attractions to visit and suggested boat tours and other excursions.
There is a small pool in the back ( 4 metres long, 2 metrs wide) whihc is nice to soak in after a hot day.

We just got back to England after a great week of holidays in Greece. We only stayed one night at Galatia Villas but we want to make sure everyone knows it is a great place to stay. We wish we could have stayed longer!
It is walking distance to the town center and all the attractions (bars, restaurants, old port...). It takes about 10 minutes to walk there and this also means you are in a quiet area (we think Fira can get very crowded in the summer).
The bedroom was lovely and very well decorated. A lot of effort and a lot of taste in there! We walked around, the pool is small but really quiet and lovely, under palm trees.
The staff is very helpful and friendly, we called quite late to have an idea where to eat and the owner came downstairs to help with a map and all. He listened to what we were looking for and directed us to exactly what we wanted... A great plus!
In other words, Galatia Villas has all you need for a relaxing holiday, and we would recommend it to anyone that looks for a "bed and breakfast" type of stay!
