Destination
The perfect Location

Whether you are visiting us for business or leisure, our location will prove to be very convenient and utterly enjoyable. Primely located just outside of Heraklion’s vibrant center, and with the majority of riveting historical sites figuratively engulfing Galaxy Hotel, our contemporary venue is the ideal setting for your stay.

Heraklion is a city with ancient roots and, being a capital town, it is inextricably linked to Crete’s rich history, as its streets are laden with myth and legend.

Swimming Pool
A liquid oasis in Heraklion...

Our sapphire blue, freshwater swimming pool is the largest in Heraklion (at 225m2) and is a ... liquid oasis for all our guests to indulge in. Its generous size makes it perfect for swimming laps if you wish to excercise a bit or if you simply wish to cool off by taking a quick dip in its alluring ripples.

The wooden pool deck that surrounds our tantalising pool will be the setting for leisurely and lazy days in the sun!
