We travelled to Heraklion for a short break, and spent 5 nights at the Galaxy hotel. We arrived early afternoon on the Monday after a short taxi journey (€14) from the Airport at Heraklion. The check in process was very good, and the staff extremely helpful - with the concierge taking our luggage to our room. The room itself was... More

Great location with a 15 min walk to the center of town...close enough, yet far enough to not hear all the hubbub and commotion of the crowds. Also, found that being a short distance away from the center of town was an advantage if you have a car. Piece of cake getting on to the national highway(minutes away) without the... More

I stayed there on business travel. I found the hotel of excellent quality and is located close to city centre. There's a good selection for breakfast, and meal quality is excellent. Even better, there's the pool to enjoy the meal near by. Staff were congenial. I suppose I'd have more to nit pick had it been my own money!

We stayed 4 nights in superior room with pool view. The hotel is some 10 min from the center; parking place is limited. The room itself is small and affected from the noise coming from the pool and restaurant area. Breakfast is varied but not delicious; instead of orange juice you drink orange pulp.. Stuff extremely polite and friendly!

Central hotel around 15-20min walk to main part/ shops of Heraklion. Service is excellent as was the food.Talos and the waiters are very professional. Rooms are well appointed and clean. The pool is quite small and shaded at times although apparently the largest fresh water pool in town. We enjoyed our holiday and our stay at the Galaxy.

Great central location, rooms are sound proof with no traffic noise, friendly staff, tasty food, close to port, great breakfast variety. Unhappy that there was less than 10 Sun beds for the pool. Large pool with no where to sit.

I really feel sorry to score the Galaxy 3 dots only: its polite, helpful, smiling (but NEVER fulsome) staff would deserve much more as well as the glorious breakfast buffet! However I have to agree with some of the previous comments: this is not what you would expect for a 5* establishement. 4* (or even 3*S) would probably suit better.... More

We stayed for two nights at the Galaxy Iraklio. This is a clean, modern hotel that is located in a good area within Iraklio, walking distance to the city center and sights. The room we were given was small and, unlike most other rooms, did not have a balcony. The room was clean and the maid service was prompt. The... More

This hotel is a good 10 min walk to town - 20-25 to the port. It is easy to get a taxi back from the port area for €5 if you can't face the walk back. Breakfast was more than adequate with an option to dine inside or out. The only downside for us was pool area. Only had about... More

Excellent service from the moment we pulled up in our rented car, very frazzled after getting lost in the old town. I meant to and never got to tip the very helpful doorman. If you come from the highway it's easy: the KNOSSOS exit, but you head into town instead of away. They secure some street spaces so parking was... More
