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 so it's easy to drive in from the airport and easy drive out to Knossos.

If your goal is to spend your time in the city center, this is not the place for you as it takes 10-15 minutes to walk there.

We easily found parking on the side street next to the hotel.

The rooms are amazing and room service is second to none.
The staff are fantastic (a big shout out to Maria who made my sister and i very welcome and helped us out with everything).
The food was incredible!!
The location is fantastic and central! We will defintly be staying there again!

This hotel has a beautiful decor, great location and restaurant, professional friendly management and staff and spacious clean rooms with very good attention to detail. The wifi access was very stable throughout the hotel and allowed me to be reachable by my client and those at home, while away on holiday. There is a lovely pool and workout room as well. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to those who are looking for a great place to stay while in Crete. Our sincere thanks to Yiannis, Poppy and all of the staff who really went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay.

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.

This hotel is lovely, with nice reception and dining areas and a good bar with a great diversity of drinks and good entertainment. The food for breakfast is of great diversity and very healthy. The coffee is served efficiently and quickly as it should be for breakfast.

The room has a nice arrangement, good lighting, lots of surface area for packing and unpacking, a good bath, a bathrobe, a safe and wifi that works well. There is no pot for heating water for tea or coffee but there are some snacks in the room for sale. The duvet is too warm but so many hotels seem to have that so one can remove the duvet and sleep under the two layers of "sheets". Room doors are not necessarily engineered to close without your attending to them so pull your door closed as you enter or leave.

Room Tip: We had no problems so cannot suggest an improvement but we always prefer rooms on higher floors.

This hotel is not on the main tourist drag near the Venetian port but a 20 minute or so walk away. it is near a bus stop to catch the bus to Knossos and on the way to the airport.
The service is excellent, with free wi if in the rooms and even after checkout if waiting until ready to go to the airport.

Even though we arrived after midnight, reception was smiling and welcoming - and did not burden us with tourist information until the following day! Just perfect attention!

The breakfast dishes were delicious and the setting around the pool very pleasant.
