We have been coming to Santorini for some years and had made Galini Cafe a place that we always made a stop at because of the great views and service. This year we decided it was time to stay. We stayed in the Supreme room which I think is 115. It is one flight of stairs down from the main...

We stayed for 5 days in junior villa and it was unforgetable experience. Comfort at the high level and the best host ever! I sugest to book rent a car and eventually sailing trip through hotel to avoid local company tricks. Warnly recommended to everyone! We will be back for sure!

Galini Cafe is extremely thoughtful. From your welcome at the door to the little box your check arrives, everything is meticulously thought out and complimentary to Santorini's ambiance. I enjoyed the Elliniki Salad and a bottle of the Ean rosé. My boyfriend ordered a crepe with turkey and feta, and a freddo cafe. Very calm and welcoming staff. We enjoyed...

We absolutely loved Galini Hotel. The views are top-notch. Even if you don't book a room with a view, there are shared balcony areas where you can enjoy the view. The cafe where breakfast is served is a beautiful open air terrace where you will also see the amazing views. Location is great. Only a 10-15 minute walk to Fira,...

We stayed at the Galini Hotel family villa. Amazing, beautiful, and totally comfortable. Christina was a great host and made us feel welcomed. We have travelled the world and have stayed in so many great hotels. This ranks among the best, if not the very best of our travels.

Loved our stay here! The staff and hotel made our stay relaxing despite being in a very touristy place. It is beautiful but also very simple in the decor. The breakfast was delicious with a perfect patio. Loved everything!

The Galini is right on the cliffs at Firostefani and has superb views over the caldera. There are restaurants close by and also a bus stop very close if you need it to go to Oia or Thira. But it's only 10 or 15 minutes walk into the main town of Thira along the path that runs along the cliffs...

From the wonderful service to the attention to detail to the fabulous setting, Hotel Galini is heaven on earth. We stayed in the family villa, a short walk to the main hotel. Christina met us when we arrived and helped us throughout our stay. We had breakfast each morning brought to our terrace where we could see the boats below...

Stayed here for about 5 days. The views are to die for, and its the right distance from Fira to stay away from the people but walk to the center if you want. The food at the cafe was delicious, and the staff both at the cafe and desk were excellent. Please ask for Christina to give you any advise...

Hotel Galini is an amazing place with beautiful views, cool style and incredibly helpful staff. Highly recommend this hotel. Their Galini Cafe is lovely and delicious. Christina is helpful and informative about what to do while you are on the island. We stayed in the Family Villa and it was perfect in every way.
