No complaints about this hotel. Clean rooms, nice amenities, good buffet breakfast etc. we had a nice quiet room facing the pool (away from the street). we really just stayed here before going to visit Knossos. For that purpose, it made for an easy drive to the site since this hotel is not in the heart of the city center... More

After three nights spent at the Galaxy hotel ,I found the place comfortable . Reception personnel offers good service .Rooms are OK .A little far from the port (about 2km) buses and taxis are rather easy to catch.In fact location is better adapted to business people than to tourists .Breakfast buffets are copious and and courteously attended by waiters.

Within walking distance to the center of Heraklion. Quiet room with a view to the swimming pool. Very clean with fitness and spa area. Excellent breakfast buffet (fresh and with local specialities). Excellent service. Bed linen were lent to me when I moved into my apartment. I appreciated it very much!

Yiannis Economou and his team starring Maria on reception and Aris the restaurant manager ensured we had a wonderful, comfortable stay in Iraklion. A haven from the bustling city outside. The food was exceptional focussing on local fresh produce. Our executive room was spacious and very comfortable. The only place to stay in town!
