Stay at the Galaxy if you want to experience a completely incredible and unique hotel. I've never felt so longing to return to a hotel before - and I've stayed at many fine hotels over the years. For staying at any hotel, I like to feel that everything I and my family will need and want has been anticipated &... More

This Hotel was so conveniently located. A few minutes walk to downtown, the harbor and a major bus stop. Also, two blocks to the bus stop to Knossus. The staff spoke very good English and were very helpful, including having bus tickets for sale at the front desk.

It is situated about 10-15 minutes from the airport and easy to find.When you arrive the staff are immediately helpful and they will take your car to park it nearby. We had booked our room with them in advance. The hotel itself is situated on... More

Excellent 5 star hotel, from the little town of Heraklion. Locations, facilities, personnel, very high ..Perfect educated staff, smiley faces , the pool fantastic. If you dont have a car u might need to walk some distance for the centre of the city, Breakfast is full of famous Cretan diet. Free wifi , many amenities in the rooms.

My husband and I stayed at the Galaxy Hotel during our visit to Crete. Overall, we thought this was a very good hotel; fairly centric location. Staff was very helpful. The breakfast at the hotel was pretty good with lots of choices.

We stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. The service was excellent the staff were always willing to exceed any request we made of them. They would bring us complimentary snacks and cheese boards when we went for a drink and a read in the bar. The breakfast is fairly typical of a European hotel. I would give the breakfast... More

This is a modern hotel with nice bright rooms, comfy beds with lots of pillows,and a small balcony. It is in a built up area so no views to speak of but it is only about a 10 minute walk to the main area of town. The food in the hotel is quite good but there are also plenty of... More

They had made sure that every single detail was to the customers liking. This was certainly one of the best value hotels I have ever stayed in. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable and had a lovely little balcony facing the pool area. They even had an air purifier, very comfy pillows and bedsheets, plus great quality toiletries in... More
