Your Destination

At each turn the city of Heraklion unfolds, displaying the marks of its grand history, its legendary past, dazzling and unique.

The thread of time linking past and present unravels to the rhythmic footsteps of each traveller, allowing them to hear both the powerful whispers reverberating through the famed Palace of Knossos, and the boisterous haggling at the colourful marketplace in the city centre where you can enjoy a variety of Cretan cheeses and herbs, beverages and other delicacies. 

From the remains of the once-brilliant hues adorning the walls of the Palace of Minos, to the vivid local colours of field and sea. From the otherworldly, refined figures gracing the Minoan frescoes, to the simple people of this rugged land. Austere, uncomplicated, uncompromising. 

The Galaxy Hotel, situated on Dimokratias Avenue, one of the island’s most cosmopolitan thoroughfares, embraces the heartbeat of the city centre without being affected by the hustle and bustle.  Nearby, there are fantastic beaches that are perfect for a relaxing afternoon and, if you fancy some other activities, check out the wonderful local museums, aquarium or the spectacular Venetian Fortress.

Your Hotel

The Galaxy Hotel boasts an innovative architectural landscape that highlights the luxurious nature of this hotel. The impressive interior design accentuates the overall focus on quality and is both outstanding aesthetically and perfectly functional.
