About Galaxy Hotel Iraklio

This sleek five-star hotel on the outskirts of Heraklion, Crete’s capital, offers plenty of luxurious comforts, an elegant design and a wealth of amenities. It sits on a hill about a 15-walk from the main Eleftherias square and popular sights, while providing the largest freshwater pool in the city.


This decidedly modern hotel offers a convenient location within reasonable walking distance of attractions like the Archaeological Museum along with well-designed spaces for a tranquil city stay. A large pool with loungers sit at its heart, and it also hosts a lounge and fine dining restaurant with outdoor terraces. Guests are welcomed with fruit and raki snacks, while rooms all have wall-sized windows and furnished balconies with either a pool or city view. Some include whirlpool baths, and if you book one of the large executive rooms, you’ll get a two-person sofa, large desk and Nespresso coffee machine. Look forward to a sumptuous buffet breakfast in Vetri overlooking the pool that includes fresh almond juice and a range of hot dishes, while its Perse restaurant offers gourmet dining on the street-side terrace in the warmer months, and a cozy fireplace for indoor dining in the winter.


Located on the outskirts of the capital city of Crete, Heraklion, a 15-minute walk from Eleftherias square. It’s about a 5-minute drive to the ferries and a 10-minute drive to the airport.
