I was fortunate enough to have stayed at the Galaxy Hotel over Easter weekend; in fact, the priest who brought the holy lights from Athens to Heraklion was on my Aegean Airlines flight! Greeting me in my room was a lovely plate of cookies, bread, and hard-boiled eggs and a white liquor that fulfilled every expectation I had for what jet fuel would taste like. Apparently traditional and a nice touch - at subsequent hotels and restaurants through out Crete I found a little honey or lemon made it palatable. The hotel is conveniently located to the center of the city and on the Hop On-Hop Off Tour Bus route. The staff were wonderful, friendly, and accommodating. Kostas was always ready to give tips on where to go, what to see, and he guided me to the correct bus for Knossos. What service! Breakfast was fantastic every morning with options for every type of eater. I was also fortunate enough to have enjoyed the Easter lunch feast. WiFi signal was strong and I never had any problems connecting. The courtyard area by the pool was peaceful and just what I needed to start my vacation. Thank you Galaxy Hotel for a great stay.
