If you look for a quiet place,typically greek, with green plants ,perfumed of exotic flowers,a warm and charming garden, and an equiped bedroom with a seasight, if you want to see a paradisiac beach (3 mn) ,the port with its traditionnal restaurants (7 mn), the village with its feasts (15 mn by bus), don't hesitate , go to Gallini pension !
You will be like kings in an haven of peace and beauty!
Of course , we go there each year , to see this lovely family , take a rest , and recharge our batteries of sun ,laugh,of dream's landscapes.
This the better place of Ios to say we are happy to live and have spent unforgettable hollidays.

We only stayed here one night, but wish we would have stayed longer. The island was much nicer then we expected (we had heard it was "too young" for us...which it was at night, but the beaches here are AWESOME). Anyway...

The staff was there right when we got off the ferry to take us to the hotel, which isn't necessary since it's a simple 10 minute walk to the hotel. They were friendly and ready to help answer all of our questions...and there were 13 of us!

The rooms are nice, average and just what you need for a simple beach stay

The breakfast isn't included, but it is a good one! Made to order eggs...yummo.

We'd stay here again...hopefully soon.

Ilias, Bernice's husband was there waiting for us at the port and gave us a lift with our bags the short distance to Galini. There we met Bernice who had our room waiting and once we had settled in, she gave us a quick run down of all the local amenities, beaches and routes.
The room was clean and cosy. The kitchenette was well equipped and on the single occasion we needed a bottle opener, Ilias got a new one for the room. The shower had plenty of hot water and was always clean.
The pension had a great atmosphere and even though we didn't use it, the garden would be great for chilling out in the hot summer evenings. The WiFi signal was strong and we had a couple of Skype calls without any glitches. We also had some laundry done - by far the best service we've had on the Greek Islands. Not sure I should mention it was free, but I'm going to anyway!
Galini is located about 2 minutes walk from the Yialos beach - surprisingly quiet and clean. The Chora is about 10 to 15 minutes walk away; you can get the bus from the harbour area if you wish but we always walked up.

They picked us up at the port after our ferry was 1h30 late! The hotel was a bit noisy since our room was next to the reception area and we could hear everything. The room was very clean, we had a fridge in the room, blow dryer, air conditioner, etc. The hotel is located right next to the port (within walking distance - 10 minutes). And there's a beach right in front of the hotel. However, if it's the nightlife you're looking for than the hotel is located a bit too far. You have to either take the bus (which finishes at 12am) or climb the stairs up to the village where all the bars and clubs are.
