Fabulous Stay
Fabulous hotel with a great pool and poolside cafe and bar ;). The rooms were very comfortable, the showers were hot and had great pressure, the beds were comfortable, the room clean. The staff helpful. We took a cab for 6.5 Euros to the Lion's Square for shopping and to visit the venetian castle at the port. Lots of shops and great restaurants in Lion's Square. All the taxi drivers know of the Galaxy Hotel.

A perfect Oasis in busy Heraklion
Travelled for a long weekend in June 2022. From the moment we walked through the door we were met with friendly professionalism and courteous and efficient staff. The room was as close to perfect as you could ask for the location & price. Food, pool all great. The location is great for tourists, close enough to the harbour to walk into town, open top bus stop right outside and plenty of places to eat etc. The only two 'negatives' I would mention are: 1) One of the two lifts was out of order that meant we had to wait a little longer to/from the 6th floor (not a big deal) 2) Parking was not great but the concierge was a big help with this BTW - Check out the massive open air market Thu & Sat about 5 mins walk from the hotel.
