Recently returned from Heraklion where I stayed at the Galaxy hotel for 4 nights; it was an altogether positive experience. The hotel is modern, well-furnished and very comfortable. The standard room which I booked was roomy, with a modern, well-equipped bathroom (an excellent shower). The bed was very comfortable, the air conditioning worked well, and there was a small fridge in the room. There was plenty of desk-top space and a large TV, with a number of English language channels (as well as Greek channels), plus free WiFi in the rooms. There was even a small balcony overlooking the pool, which had a very useful drying rack to deal with your own washing: very thoughtful. The complementary breakfast was very generous and varied, as was the level of service from the hotel staff. They not only looked after my suitcase after I checked out on the final day (as I had a late evening flight), they even let me shower and change in the downstairs gym after my day out at the beach in Hersonissos. The Galaxy is a bit of a walk from the centre of town, but it did me good, and I could have caught a bus. The bus to and from the airport stops a few minutes from the hotel. The pool is lovely, but due to the compact site, there is not sun on the pool all day. There are also 2 good restaurants within 5 mins of the Galaxy: the Kiriakos a few 100 metres down the road from the Galaxy (towards the centre) and the Pantopolion a few streets behind the hotel. I had the bonus of getting all this for just 70 Euros per night, because of their 'Crisis Room special offer', which is no longer available. At the present rate of 100E per night, for two it would still be a bargain!
