Reviewed 12 July 2014

We loved this hotel, we ended our 5 week Europe trip here and we could not have picked a better place, it has an amazing view, the rooms are very clean, we had a private spa on our balcony, the food is fantastic, the staff are great and very friendly, the owner is a champion. there are 2 pools to choose from both with views of the ocean.
location wise its perfect, 5 min ride to Fira and also very close to other restaurants however i recommend eating at the hotel rooftop restaurant. the view is one of a kind. We rode all over the island an honestly we couldn't find a place with a better view. best place for sunsets is right on your own balcony. This place is perfect.

Wonderful location and very cute rooms! We booked a modern suite. It was lovely!!! Maybe request when you stay there to have a room with out powerlines in the way of the view. Only a minor thing but I am fussy! haha...
The food was beautiful and people who worked there were very friendly.
Its a lovely walk into Fira - takes about an hour. I bribed my husband doing this every day by buying him a beer before we started walking. Was brilliant!
Love this place! AMAZING!!
Its also a bit hard to find so if your arriving at night, make sure you have their number in your phone to help with directions!! We walked straight past it and got lost for about an hour!!! Its hard to see at night!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with no power lines distracting the view.

We visited Santorini for a wedding at the beginning of October the visit also coincided with my partners birthday.

We found the hotel easily by taxi and were met warmly by Maria, she gave us all the information we needed re trips, restaurants etc.

Our room was a suite with a hot tub. The room was lovely and the view from the hot tub pretty special. Some people have mentioned telephone wires but these do not detract from the view and it would be pretty hard for the hotels to function without them!

Some of the rooms and hot tubs are overlooked but we were very lucky as we had one of the higher rooms. The hot tub was not massively warm but we did encounter cold weather on our visit so I imagine the temperature struggled to keep up with it. We spent many a night sat in it with a glass of wine.

Breakfast was lovely and despite us handing in our request sheet very late on two occasions due to nights of excessive partying, breakfast was always delivered on time, warm and plentiful.

There is a lot of stairs EVERYWHERE but this helped us work off our large dinners and the cliff paths were beautiful with donkeys and art galleries dotted along them. Take some decent flat sandals or even trainers as most of the path is uneven cobbles, I insisted on wearing my new sky high wedges on one evening and spent the last leg of the journey on my partner back.

There are a few restaurants within walking distance of the hotel which are nice but pricier than Fira town. If you want a deal go to Fira for food and drinks.

The walk from the Hotel to centre of Fira was approx. 45 mins but this was a leisurely walk taking in the scenes. Taxi is about 5-10 euros depending on the time of day.

During the stay I requested that a cake was bought to the room for my partner birthday, this was done beautifully by Maria and was much appreciated.

We absolutely loved Santorini and would definitely recommend this hotel, we also recommend you go on at least one of the cruises, these can be paid for by heading to the port in the morning or afternoon and are usually a lot cheaper than booking through the hotel.

We spent 5 days in Santorini....Great location, with amazing views from the Balcony and Hot tub on the balcony.

The staff went out of there way to arrange a birthday cake and Champagne breakfast on the balcony the morning of my partners birthday.

Making for an exceptional stay...the spacious suite was just what we wanted to end an amazing holiday in Greece.

I would advise that there are quite a few stairs to climb to get to the rooms, but that added to the experience...would be hard to find a hotel in Imerovigli that does not have stairs

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms higher floor. A 200 m walk towards Fira, we found an amazing restaurant w...

I put average because I don't want to rate it "very good" but really it's more like somewhere in between.
Let me start by saying that I was in one of those suites with several bedrooms that I had booked for a bunch of our friends, and the problem is, we didn't realize it would only be queen beds (not two singles) and that the rooms didn't all have doors (one had just a curtain). We each had a bathroom, but we all took a shower in the same one as it was the only one that worked properly...
The service was good, although they seemed to have a bit of a hard time handling all of us (we were a group of 11 people in two suites) especially at breakfast or when we ordered room service for everyone at the same time... but they really tried their best and were always very nice.
The rooms were nice, the towels were unbelievably thick (bring your own!), the view was amazing. All and all, we had a good time and had no major complaints... except for the Jacuzzi that flooded the entire room --but that's because 7 boys jumped in it when it's supposed to be a maximum of 3.

After searching around for an ideal hotel within our price range <400 euros/night, we stumbled upon Galaxy and booked a stay for 3 days. I will say that they place seemed a little different than advertised on their website, but they quickly made us feel extremely comfortable and took all my worries about the location away. Our room had spectacular views of the south end of the the caldera, although you can't see the 2 volcanic islands in the middle. The room was very comfortable and does include a private hot tub, but it is not private from people walking in front of your room. Overall though, after we looked online at the prices of neighboring hotels we determined that Galaxy is an amazing value for the money. Most of the other luxury hotels in Imeriovigli go for >800 euros/night.

The staff was absolutely incredible, starting with Grygory and Maria. Grygory met our every need and Maria gave us some amazing recommendations in terms of activities and restaurants. The included breakfast was spectacular and was served to us right in our room. They also accommodated us for early check-in which was very nice.

For a first stay in Santorini, you can't beat the location of Galaxy and we took advantage of this by hiking to both Fira and Oia during our stay. The staff at Galaxy really made the difference and if we return, it will be because of them.

Room Tip: Choose a room above the telephone wire for an unobstructed view of the caldera - we stayed in room 1...

I will start with the positives, that is quicker... a good location if you don't want to be around a lot of people (there is a reason for this). The bar staff (who also cover as technician's and the manager when she is not around) are awesome, they where the best part of our stay.
So on to the reality of the situation. Our stay was average at best. We were on our honeymoon and had booked and paid (a lot of money) in advance. A week before we were due to stay I got an email saying the manager had stuffed up the bookings so we would have to change rooms as the had no rooms that covered the same room for the two nights we were staying but the would help move our bags and give us flowers and a bottle of wine. We should have changed hotels.
The manager was so unorganised and never around. The first room we got was supposed to have an private balcony with a hot tub and views of the caldera and the sea. We had a tiny terrace area with a hot tub and a view of the pool. NO privacy and young guys bombing in the pool with the water almost coming on to us. No view of the sea or the caldera. The TV didn't work and we were told a technician would come and fix it. One of the bar guys came and played around for 30 minutes then told us he would send a technician up. After 1.5 hours waiting we called as we wanted a nap, so they send another technician (bar guy), who couldn't fix it so said he would call a technician. We called and said not to send anyone we wanted privacy, but the manager said they needed to fix it for the person coming tomorrow! It never got fixed anyway.
The next room did have a private balcony, with views obstructed by telegraph poles. It was up high, and "due to the wind" the hot tub was cold and could not be fixed. The room had a bright light in the electrical box that lit up the room and could not be covered. We also got a call from the manager telling us to pack our bags that night so that we would be out on time as the room was booked the next day!!
So our expected magical honeymoon at the Galaxy Suites was not pleasant.
There are also no restaurants close by, so you are either stuck with bar food or taking cabs.
They did however give us a nice bottle of wine, it was on their menu for 35euro. I liked it so much that when I found it at the corner shop for 9euro I bought a bottle...

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.
