It has been several years since I have been to Heraklion to visit friends but this year the wonderful people and beautiful country were calling me back! In the past, I had stayed at The Galaxy and I was anxious to get back to my home away from home. We always had a spectacular stay here and this year was... More

I have stayed at quite a few hotels in Greece for both business and leisure and Galaxy was one of the few you could experience the luxury and comfort of a 5star city hotel and at the same time the famous Cretan hospitality. The well trained Staff , always with a smile on their face, made you feel like home... More

We stayed in this hotel twice during our holiday both at the start and the end for 7 nights in total. We paid a bit more and stayed in an executive suite which was roomy although not quite so with the sofa bed permanently made up for our son. The hotel does live up to the reviews. It is very...

I wish I could quit my job in New York City, move to Greece, and live in the Galaxy! I would eat so well (the breakfast is what I look forward to most on my visits to the hotel), I would be taken care of (they have some great new staff and the old, committed ones are as accommodating, welcoming,...

We picked this hotel based on the reviews and read a lot of them thoroughly before picking our hotel. We stayed in elounda the prior year so wanted to go elsewhere. The rooms are okay but not that large unless you pay a lot extra for executive rooms or suites. The executive room has a very small balcony that you... More

We have only stayed for a night. It was a reasonable priced average quality hotel. Breakfast was good, reception was very friendly and helpful. If you are in Heraklion foe a few days I recommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed at the Galaxy for 12 nights from 24/6/15 - 6/7/15. The hotel staff were all fantastic, very friendly, very helpful. The hotel is in great condition - our room was really lovely with everything you could need. Great fresh breakfast and local produce to die for. The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the... More

A very clean, modern hotel near the centre of Heraklion. With complimentary high speed wifi. Just a ten minute walk from the parks, busy shops, and the lovely port. Lots to do at night. And with several fantastic cake and sweet cafes nearby. The Galaxy hotel deserves its reputation. Every member of staff we encountered was pleasant and attentive. And... More
