This hotel was a bit like an airport hotel. Small room, Greek TV, over expensive bar. Noisy during the night, needed big air con as the room was over warm. But the staff were friendly and the breakfast good.

My review of this hotel is based on unusual circumstances. While in Crete, my wife suffered a heart attack and was admitted to the University of Crete Medical Center, where she got a pacemaker. For the week she was in hospital, I stayed at the Galaxy. The staff, from the front desk to the bellman, were kind, considerate, and looked... More

We booked a quiet executive room and found ourselves overlooking the pool on the top floor in a spacious room with a small balcony. Everything was comfortable; a kettle was provided on request, as was an electric adaptor. Service was always very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was highly varied, including Cretan specialities that changed every morning. My favourite custard pies... More

We booked here because we needed a room for one night prior to our vacation rental. The staff was outstanding; from front desk to the restaurant to the bellman, everyone was helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious dinner we had in the restaurant. There was live music, jazz piano and... More

We spent 3 days in this excellent hotel as part of our holiday in Crete. This is by far one of the finest hotels with a great service from all the staff. It is well located to explore Iraklio and it prides on serving their customers. The food in the restaurant is very good, don't miss it! Would definitely visit... More

LOVED this hotel. After more than a week of road tripping, we needed to find a hotel to stay the night in Heraklion to catch an early flight to Athens. So glad we found this place because it was a great find! If you need a place close to the airport and close to the center, do not hesitate one... More

Took us 15 mins to get to center. Bus to and from airport super close maybe 2 blocks from hotel. Bus to Knossos also close. Maybe 5-6 blocks away. Very... More

This gem is located a delightful 10 minute walk from the centre Heraklion, taking you past the old city walls. It is also a 5 minute walk from the bus... More

We had just a week in Crete and the Galaxy Hotel was the best choice - close to the centre of Heraklion but also convenient to catch busses to other parts of Crete (Knossos only 6 miles away). Perfect location (just 10 mins walk to main square) for all Heraklion day and night activities. Excellent, friendly service, wide range for... More

We stayed at the Galaxy for one night before going to Chania. The hotel was great, although the room was somewhat smallish and the pool area was closed for the evening due to a private party. Breakfast was good, check in fast and efficient. Staff very helpful with suggestions on what to see in the city center. Free parking in... More
