I was positively surprised about the Galaxy hotel. I liked the room interior as much as the very friendly service and mostly the breakfast room and service. The pool is located in the courtyard and the reception offered me a 24 hour usw of the hamam. The only thing I had to do was to inform the reception 15min before... More

Clean, nice service and modern amenities. Enjoyed time here, had breakfast in hotel, walking distance to town (20 mins) but not close to beaches. No views but pleasant enough outlook. Comfortable and good price.

Can't say enough positive things about this hotel. It is only a short ( fifteen minute) and safe (we were two women, travelling alone) walk, to the many restaurants, and museums and stores, in the Heraklion. Our room was comfortably spacious, by European standards. We enjoyed the freshwater pool, and it was never crowded. Staff were pleasant, and we had... More

This hotel is a bit out of the way, but with 30 minutes, is within walking distance of everything in Heraklion. Because Knossos, the main tourist draw, is further away, a taxi or bus should be taken. But this is the best location to see Knossos from. The hotel was good overall including the pool. The breakfast was outstanding and... More

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. The breakfast buffet is very good and the option to sit outdoors by the pool makes it even better. The gym is small but modern, and accessable 24/7, the staff is one of the friendliest and most helpful I have met. We also sprnd some time working from the hotel and... More

I always return to Galaxy to enjoy their 5 star luxury. There is easy access from the National road and 1 km walk from the popular shopping centre. I enjoyed the quiet, the spaciousness, the cleaness and the luxury of the room (425). Reception and porter very polite and helpful. Nice surprise their Cretan oriented breakfast. Last but least the... More

No Stat Nav in the hire car so had some fun finding this hotel, but it was well worth it. We were travelling out of season so were upgraded to a beautiful balconied room on the 6th. floor overlooking the pool. The Galaxy is a good sized hotel, even has a ballroom, it is modern and well appointed. Valet parking... More
