We selected this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Our room was clean, quiet and very comfortable with amenities you would expect in a luxury hotel. The room was a bit small for 3 adults, however quite comfortable for the two nights we stayed. Excellent location for visiting Knossos (short bus ride) and the Venetian...

A belated review following a 10 day stay earlier this year. I stayed here with a friend, never having been to Crete before and what a wonderful welcome we discovered. We found an immaculately clean, modern hotel, easy to get to from the airport (we drove a hire car) and the Route National and a gentle 15 minute walk into...

Great hotel close to all the major attractions in Heraklion. Rooms are a little small. But the price is great to afford two rooms for family. Best breakfast I've had at a hotel. Everyone at the hotel, including the front desk, were very nice and helpful.

This modern luxury hotel has all the amenities you'd expect and is in a good location. It was a 10 minute walk from the hotel to the city center and just another 5 minutes to the Venetian fortress and the old port. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. We ate at the poolside restaurant our first night and the...

Really, although I only visited Crete for a short stay of three days (24th-26th of June), the Hotel was better than I expected. Very friendly staff, very clean hotel and pool area and very quiet rooms with great sleeping quality. The pool is also bigger than I expected from a city hotel and the water was in a very good...

The hotel is actually very nice but the service (if you're not Greek) is shockingly bad. No more so than in their 'highly acclaimed' Vetri restaurant where we tried to eat last night. The serving staff on duty would have been under qualified for KFC. We sat waiting for someone to come to take our order which took more than...

My husband and I are traveling with another couple, and we "escaped" to this hotel from another (that I've reviewed elsewhere on this site) about ten or fifteen minutes away. While this hotel doesn't have a private beach--and the beach at the hotel we'd escaped from was very small and densely packed--this hotel has a beautiful pool and lounging area....

This was just meant to be a ‘stopover’ hotel for us… in transit between Santorini and Agios Nikolaios. We only had one night and wish we had more! The bed was luxuriously comfortable, the TV welcomed us with our names on the screen, the robes were thick and fluffy, the shower pressure was fab, the complimentary Turkish delight was a...

Me and my wife came back today from a 4 night vacation in Heraklion. We stayed at "Galaxy" and it was amazing! On our 1st day there, we were supposed to check in at 14:00 but arrived early, at around 09:00. Aris from the front desk was very welcoming and invited us to have breakfast (He didn't have to) and...

We enjoyed 1 evening at this hotel. A pleasant walk to the port action through an upscale neighbourhood. Driving here from Chania with a GPS was tricky due to several 1 way streets surrounding the hotel. Flustered with no available street parking, we finally surrendered our car rental to a hotel staff member who parked it in their lot while...
