      Gorgeous Interior The staff were very friendly and helpful with showing us what to see around Santorini. The room we booked, one with a jacuzzi was absolutely gorgeously decorated and we could not fault it. The location is prime with it being a short distance from the main square and the bus depot - although must be fit to walk as there is a steep hill. Would highly recommend and would return again!

      Find Budget optionGalatia Villas is a fine budget option in Santorini where location is a premium. The trade-off for the low price is a good 15 to 20 minutes walk, much of it up Hill to the main square in Fira. For places in this area away from the caldera, it's unfortunate there is no motorbike taxi service on the island. The rooms here appear to be nearly brand new, fairly decent in size, and quite clean and bright. It first appear that the hot water wasn't working, until I realized I do need it to open the electrical box and turn the circuit breaker on. Would have been helpful if the hotel had provided some notice. Otherwise things went smoothly. My only request for service was to arrange a taxi to the airport very early in the morning and the taxi arrived right on time. If you're fit or don't mind the inconvenience of some rather rigorous walking in the interest of saving money, then this hotel offers a good value.

      Hotels pre-booked transfers are very disappointingFor our arrival, we pre-booked with the hotel a 'private' pick-up transfer (€10 per person) from Athinios Port. I'd read lots of stories about the long slow trip from the Port to Fira. The trip is approximately 10km, but the first 4km is a very steep climb up a narrow single lane road, with 7 or more tight hairpin bends. There is no opportunity to pass, so after a ferry has arrived, the traffic is like a long slow procession of ants crawling up the sheer cliff-face. To get a jump on the traffic, we made sure we were among the first passengers off the ferry. We found our driver holding a sign with our name, and thought we would be on our way. No - that's when we discovered our 'private' transfer wasn't private at all. We waited for 5 more passengers off the same ferry, and then 2 more passengers off the next ferry. After 45 minutes (or more) we were finally on our way. By now the traffic was horrendous! Each passenger paid €10 per person - so €90 for the mini-van to travel a 10km trip - an absolute rip-off and misrepresentation of the service we were sold! In addition to this, we were not dropped at the door of the hotel. Instead we were dropped off roadside at the top of a steep hill and left to navigate the decline with our luggage. The hotel was nearby (down the hill and around the corner), but no staff member came to meet us and assist with our luggage. Not exactly a warm welcome! At check-out we experienced more transfer problems - this time going to the Airport (€10 per person - distance 5.5km). We had a 6:40 am flight (to Athens), so had to be at the Airport at 5:40 am. When we pre-booked the transfer with the Hotel, we were told we'd be picked up out the front of the Hotel at 5:00 am. By the time we got our luggage to the front gate it was 5:03 am. We waited 5 minutes or so and nobody arrived. The Hotel reception opens at 8:00 am so there were no staff available. We wondered if there had been a mix-up with instructions, so decided to head

      Ok for budget stay”

      For a low season deal, it was value for money as we were budget travelling therefore it suited our needs. However, if I was to stay in peak season I would probably want something with lighter and brighter rooms for peak season rates, as it was a little more dated then in looked in pictures.

      The hotel is very clean and comfortable. Excellent Internet connection which is free of cost. The location is very nice, in a quiet location of Fira and close to the centre of the town, 5 minutes walking. The hotel staff very kind and gentle. The hotel has a nice swimming pool and it has lots of flowers around with night candle lamps lit in the garden in the evening for a unique ambience.

      Das ganze Hotel ist mit Liebe eingerichtet, jedes Detail stimmt..und wird sehr sauber gehalten!

      Die Galatia Villas hat durchgehend überzeugt: Tolle Lage, sehr ruhig (3min. vom Zentrum entfernt), Sehr schönes Hotel, tolle Familie die es betreibt, sehr zuvorkommend.. man fühlt sich wie zu Hause. Wer ein kleineres Burget hat ist das die perfekte Lösung - Luxus zum kleinen Preis! Einzig ist unser Standard-Zimmer etwas kelein (andere sind grösser und gemütlicher) Wer hier Urlaub macht - unbedingt einen Quad oder Roller mieten! Wir empfehlen "MotorInn" - super Service, wir wurden am Flughafen empfangen - haben den Quad übernommen und ab ins Hotel... keine Wartezeit, Taxisuche oder lestiges Bus-warten :) und nicht zu vergessen: der schönste Strand ist auf Perissa - besucht den "Ntomatini"! Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!
