“Great hotel, good location, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2009

Having just come from a Hotel in Santorini with a view over the Caldera I didn't have great hopes for this hotel (which we chose at very short notice), so it was a nice surprise to arrive at a hotel with very friendly staff, a large clean room overlooking the large swimming pool.
The location is great (despite being on the edge of the current phase of hotel developments and overlooking scrubland!), about 200m from the beach and a 5 minute walk from the town centre.
We were only in Naxos for one night but I would certainly recommend Galaxy Hotel (and Naxos) for longer stays.

We arrived in Naxos on a Ferry from Santorinin. The Galaxy is a great purpose built hotel. The location is two m intes from a beach and the town of Naxos is an easy 10 m inute walk. The hotel staff is most attentive. The rooms have been redone recently and they are very nice. the bath room was first class. The hotels pool is large and excellent. Definitely a place to stay. If you have the time rent a car and drive to Plaka beach (the beach is beautiful and not so crowded and the water cystal clear) about 15 minutes and then take a drive up into the mountains the views are wonderful and in the village of Chalki there are several places to get a good lunch. Two excellent restaurants in Naxos town,Taverna Aposolis and Metazumas

This hotel is beatifully positioned, close to the beach, but on the edge of town so not in a busy area. Nevertheless the centre of town was only a 10m walk away - ideal! The staff here were fantastic - very friendly and always ready to help or give advice. Our room (rooms were renovated last year) was kept beautifully clean, and the massage shower was divine - now I want one at home! Pool area was spotless, with good quality sunbeds and free poolside towels, which was handy.
In short, highly recommended! We had a fantastic holiday - our thanks to Stephan the manager, Sinni at the bar, and everybody who helped to make our stay so enjoyable.

Stayed at the Galaxy, for five nights in September 2009. Booked via their website a Superior Room (112) overlooking the Sea which came with sensational sunsets.

Friendly staff, high levels of facilities for a small hotel and well located.

Breakfast was average but typical of breakfasts in Greece.

Nice pool Area, High standard of rooms, with great bathrooms.

Stayed at the Galaxy Hotel as part of an island hopping package that started and ended in Santorini with 4 nights in Naxos and 3 nights in Ios. We arrived in Naxos Port at sunset to the beautiful site of the Temple of Apollo. We were transferred to the Galaxy Hotel and expectations before arrival were the usual - basic but clean hotel will do and we were only expecting 2 or 3* anyway. On arrival immediately the hotel appearance & reception indication we were in for a pleasant surprise. We were taken to our rooms and were more than please. Modern wardrobe & safe fittings, lovely brick interior with some artwork, balcony with a lovely view over St Georges beach and to top it off a wonderful jacuzzi shower which pout shame to some of the shower rooms we were used to.

The hotel was ideally located, lovely clean beach a 10 second walk away with plenty of beach bars for drinks/food & sunloungers, close to the town centre & port so could easily walk to any of the restaurants, bars or sight seeing in the town centre. Breakfast was plentiful although was abit like a cattlemarket at times with other guests not having any manners to wait until you have poured yourself a juice. The usual continental breakfast, bread, ham, eggs, cheese, biscuits, tea, coffee or juice.

Highly recommend a visit to the lovely Naxos, plenty to see and do and locals were friendly. Made friends with a few locals on our visit. 4 days was sufficient to see the sights (we wanted to get back to Santorini). The pool was nice and clean but we never used it as were either on the beach at the hotel or out and about. We hired quad bikes to tour the island taking in the lovely scenary, beaches and Temple architecture that remain.

Galaxy Hotel is ideally located for a visit to Naxos, nothing to fault and enjoy the jacuzzi shower (although can be painful with bad sunburn!)

I will visit this place again. I passed this hotel last year when holidaying on Naxos and when i decided to go back to the island this summer picked this one as a good place to stay. I was not disappointed and staying here was one of the highlights of my trip.

The Galaxy is a gorgeous place to stay with an incredible pool with views down to St George's beach. it's perfectly positioned being sufficiently out of town to not be disturbed by any noise. You then have the choice of eating at St George's (Susanna's pizza place is still great) or ealking into town and into the Kastro (Apostoli's is the best greek restaurant I have ever eaten in)

I got really lucky with my room, and ended up in a little bungalow by the pool. It was a huge room with an incredible hydro massage shower, and was kept immaculately clean. I particularly loved the uv night light to go into the bathroom. The AC was a little iffy, and didn't seemed to cool off the room, but I think it may have been duff and wasn't a major issue.

The only slight down to the hotel was the one morning i had breakfast it wasn't the best, but frankly I don't go to hotels for the breakfast. it was a minor thing, and sitting by the pool looking out over the sea more than compensated for it.

After a very poor experience in a previous hotel we stumbled upon the Galaxy Hotel. From the very minute we arrived we were made to feel special. The superior room was tastefully decorated with plenty of wardrobe space and an excellent fridge. It was a wee bit small but this was not a problem due to the large balcony and bathroom. The bathroom was excellent - brand new with a fantastic shower system.

The staff of the hotel were exceptional - from the waiting staff to the owner Lampros you were greeted with fantastic service and excellent manners. The hotel manager Stephano was a very pleasant man and his greek dancing needs to be seen to be believed!

It is in close walking distance to the main chora and is near enough to the beach to appreciate it but not so close that the noise from the bars there bug you.

Pool was excellent, nice pool bar serviing a variety of snacks and free clean towels for your use.

All in all I would highly recommend this hotel to you as it made our stay in Naxos even more special than it already was.
