We stayed in Galini hotel in September 2019 for 1 week. We couldn't recommend the hotel enough. We were collected from the Port. The staff are wonderful, so helpful and kind. Our four year old son was with us and the staff were so patient and kind with him. He fell in love with the resident cat JJ. Our room was a great size and so clean. Everything we needed was there. The gardens are beautiful, so peaceful. The hotel is very close to the Port beach and a five minute walk to the port, shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again and we hope to do so next year. Highly recommend it.

This was a nice find for a good value close to the port. The owners were very helpful. It had all the basics covered, with the only downsides being a small shower and very firm mattress that wasn't the most comfortable.

We stayed in Galini in June 2019 in a room with a view right out onto the sea over looking the impeccably-kept garden. The smells would waft into our room from the beautiful flowers. Our room had a brand new bathroom with a big shower as well as a fridge and supplies for making coffee/tea. When we'd head out for the day it was such a treat to come home to Galini where our room would be sparkling clean. The staff were always friendly and helpful and picked us up from the port as we arrived late at night. The hotel is literally a 60 second walk to the unspoilt Yialos beach as well as a five minute walk to the port and all its restaurants. Since my visit I have been to other hotels in different places and all pale by comparison to Galini in Ios. I cannot wait to make a return visit.

We picked Galini as it was so cheap and we needed to spend one night in Ios just for a stop off between ferries. My husband and I stayed here with friends and were disappointed we were only here for one night. Bernice greeted us when we arrived and gave us useful information about the island and showed us to our rooms which were basic but clean and comfortable. The Galini is a short walk from the port and the lovely sandy Yialos Beach. We spent our one evening catching the bus as recommended by Bernice into town and walking up to see the beautiful sunset. We had a reasonably priced breakfast in the courtyard the next morning before setting off to the port, even though we didn’t want to leave so soon. My husband and I are now looking forward to returning to Ios this September as we have booked to stay at Galini.....for a week this time!
