The hotel is really well run, the staff are all very helpful and willing to give advice on where to go for the best bars and restaurants and which tourist attractions to visit. The location is close enough to the town centre to walk but far enough out that it's not noisy or over crowded.

But the services are very good and nice, the... More

It's a very nice hotel near the center of Heraklion. It's also quite close to the Knosso palace. The staff is very friendly and the will help with everything. All the services in the hotel work just fine and the pool is very nice. The rooms are ok especially the one with the balcony on the pool.

Breakfast was average for this kind of hotel but overall was enjoyable. Not much of a view from the rooms but Crete is not worth the view from... More

This was a perfect place for us to stay for a night before heading back home. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. We were 2 families so we had 4 rooms and our accommodations were just fine. There was a great lounge area outside for the adults to sit while being able to observe our kids playing in... More

Myself and my boyfriend came here for a week on half board basis. I loved how close it was to the airport and yet, it still felt quiet as was a little walk from the city. This was a pleasant walk however with some lovely little bar and cafe finds on the way. Food was excellent. On the half board... More

Last week, I visited the cafeteria of the hotel, on the ground floor. Following a long history and tradition meets high quality standards. Privacy, dignity, calm is declared a nature of this area. Be sure to add the kindness of the staff and helpfulness. This cafe is suitable for business meetings.

We have stayed at the Galaxy three time in the past 25 years: it was wonderful ages ago, and it is even better now after a refurbishment. It is modern and a trifle glitzy, but ALL the staff, from the bellmen to the front desk to the restaurant people,is warm, friendly, and accommodation: they acted as if they are truly... More

Spent 4 nights at this Hotel in Heraclion. Only a few minutes walk from the City Centre but located in a quiet area and surrounded by amenities such as banks, restaurants, petrol station etc. Just up the road is a nice park to relax in the cool over a drink whilst sipping a drink, sometimes to the sounds of live...
