We spent 3 lovely days here. The room was comfortable (thankfully, a true king bed instead of two twins, which we've found elsewhere in Greece. The staff is helpful, to where they even arranged a 5:00 AM breakfast so we could catch our early morning flight to Athens. The breakfasts are amazing (different offerings daily), and the location is great... More

Hotel is located at somewhat 15 minutes of walk distance from the hearth of the city, yet close to some good cafes and restaurants, and the district is far form being noisy. If you prefer to rent a car like us, the hotel has its own free parking place and it's very easy to reach main routes. Hotel staff was... More

I thought this hotel ticked all the boxes. Close enough to the old part of town without paying a massive premium to be right in the town. Not too far away to feel like you were in a soulless suburb. Service level was top class and actually I felt like all staff were on point and delivered a great experience.... More

A long overdue review of Galaxy Hotel. We stayed here in late August of 2015 for a portion of our honeymoon. The staff welcomed us with a complimentary bottle of wine and nuts & honey...complete with rosepetals on the bed! After a long ferry ride it was such a nice surprise and just what we needed. The room is well... More

Treat yourself - a modern, sleek design 5 star hotel just minutes walk away from the town centre and port. Great facilities including a hammam and gym, and a delicious breakfast buffet. Helpful and attentive staff, willing to go the extra mile. We were offered a free upgrade which included a Nespresso machine - cant go wrong with that. Highly... More

Chose this hotel for our small Christmas holidays in Heraklion. We expected Something typical. Not exactly. Staff exceptionally warm and helpful. The facility nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast with descent variety and very good flavours. It worth mentioning the exceptional local flavours they include in the buffet. About 20 minutes of pleasant walk to the center. A bit on the...

We lodged in the hotel the night before our flight back home. The position is ideal, we easily took a very nice walk to the city museum and center with our three years old daughter. The taxi to the airport took only 10 minutes. Nice swimming pool and really delicious breakfast. Looking forward to come back!

This hotel is located in a comfortable residential area not far from the centre of the city. It is located on a pleasant boulevard with some restaurants and shops nearby. About 10-15 minutes walk to the main town and harbour. From our observation it was the best city hotel in Heraklion. Although it is not a resort it has a... More
