This is a seriously professional business hotel - elegant, immaculately clean, with very attentive and helpful staff, very good if a bit pricy gourmet restaurant, and probably the best masseuse in Greece (the one and only Lia Berdiaki). My room (single) was not huge, but very well laid out, with a spacious, brightly lit bathroom, ample storage space, a very... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Galaxy Hotel. The hotel itself is modern and impeccably clean. Breakfast was the freshest and best variety we had in our entire stay in Greece. The location of the hotel is an easy 10min walk to the city centre. We liked the location because it was close enough to get to everywhere we... More

We just spent 4 days in Crete and made this hotel our central point. It has an ideal location for making tours (e.g. with a rental car) around the island. By foot to the Heraklion city, close to airport and close to the highways. Originally we had booked the allergy free rooms (hey are cleaned by a special air conditioner),... More

The Wellness centre is a room with 5 exerise machines, masage room and a small steam cubicle. When we asked how many could be there at once we were 14/40... More

I loved staying here. What a delightful surprise. Everything was new and sparkly. The breakfast buffet was out of this world. The service was exemplary. Our room super comfy and the bathroom very glam.

Placed near the center of Heraklion ( 10' on foot, 1' by car) Galaxy Hotel is well known as the perfect place to meet, discuss and close a business deal. In a zen atmosphere, with everything simplified and among the tones of beige and sand, and with the couches and tables placed in large distances that ensure privacy, one may... More
