The Galaxy Hotel
The Galaxy Hotel is conveniently located on Dimokratias Avenue, the city's most elegant thoroughfare, only a short walk from its historic center. The location affords easy access to Heraklion's International Airport and the Port, as well as excellent connections to all of Heraklion's sites, such as the Palace of Knossos and the Archaeological Museum.
The Galaxy Hotel, Heraklion's premier 5 star hotel for business and leisure, was completely renovated in 2008. It offers an unsurpassed combination of world-class facilities, warm and professional service, convenient location, and delicious food & beverage.
The Galaxy has 127 rooms and suites. All guest rooms feature an elegant European design with modern furniture and fabrics, fully-independent climate control, spacious desks, complimentary Wi-Fi and wired hi-speed Internet access, a plasma TV, premium Egyptian cotton bed and bath linen (including duvets and bathrobes), slippers, select bath amenities and safe boxes.
The Galaxy strives to offer its guests an exceptional culinary experience. They pride themselves on using the best fresh (and organic where possible) local produce. They even produce their own extra virgin olive oil on farms outside Heraklion. The wine list features several small, local organic wine makers.
Galaxy Hotel offers a range of food and beverage facilities that satisfy even the most demanding palate. From the extensive breakfast buffets to gourmet à la carte dining and all-day casual dining, the Galaxy is renowned for culinary excellence.
Per Se is the focal point of the hotel for guests and locals alike. The bar serves premium brand spirits, local and international wines and inspired cocktails. Guests may also enjoy casual gourmet treats, specially prepared by the chefs. All of this is accompanied by nightly mellow DJ-music and, of course, warm and friendly service.
The chef at Vetri draws his inspiration from the vast gastronomic treasures of Crete, adding a daring touch to traditional dishes and creating delicious flavors worthy of even the most demanding palate.
Indulge in delicious dishes and drinks poolside. The natural wood and stone pool deck is specially designed for casual comfort, making it one of the most sought out places in the hotel. Light meals, casual dining and exotic cocktails are served here daily.
The Wellness Club allows guests the luxury of deciding how best to manage their free time. Vigorous and gentle workouts in the fully equipped gym serve as the perfect solution to releasing any mental tension. A spell in the all-marble Harvia steam room or a massage from our therapist is sure to ease away those travel induced aches and pains.
