Great hotel, super friendly staff and good amenities. Basic but not in a bad way. Good value for money. Nice pool and easy to access town on foot or via a cab. Local restaurants close by and nice views away from the main area of argostoli. Would recommend.

comfortable room absolutely wonderful hosts petros and maria were exceptional hosts way beyond anything i expected, free wi fi breakfast supplied swimming and beautiful beach just across the road. although my wife and i say never again to the same place as we like to see lots of different places ,will definitely be back there next year.

Maria and Petros are example of how great staff can make or break your experience. Very friendly and helpful with time to make a small chat with big smile on their faces with almost every guest! The hotel itself is nice and clean. The location is also good if you are looking for something near the city but in peaceful area.

Before I begin thank you Petros and Maria for the wonderful three weeks,oh and rocky.You will read in most reviews how homely and relaxing the hotel is believe me they're all correct if you're looking for laid back and relaxing you're looking at the right hotel.It's set near to fanari lighthouse in between lassi and argostolli when you walk out of the gates turn left this will take you to lassi, slightly hilly walk taking about forty minute steady walking on the way there's a hotel where you can stop for refreshments a little bit further on is Oscars restaurant which looks high class but is very good to eat at and the prices are no different from the others in the area.Turn right from the hotel and you're on the way to the capital Argostolli first you will come to the small headland with the lighthouse which would be nice for photos except for the mindless graffiti, next you will find the camp site and a restaurant out front,the food is very basic but good Johanna will probably greet you as you go by she can be off putting but is really ok along with Manos her hubby,there is another restaurant/bar next door which is just as good but watch the surcharges. Next is the waterwheel on the way to argostolli and just after that another restaurant called the vinearie we never ate in there but it's handy for a stop over,restaurant seemed very popular though.Forgot to mention it about 30 minutes to Argostolli this way but flat. Outside just across the road there are some small coves which are accessible with minimal effort and are brilliant to spend the day on in peace and quiet not much sand but the sea is sheltered by the cliffs and great to swim in,small beach around the corner next to campsite this is sandy though not large. Enough of the area you will find what you need. The bar is as most say help yourself and pay later or later or even later (petros),because you're bed breakfast,there are menus for the local takeaways behind the desk just ask for them and petros or Maria will order for you and are well worth the money. Taxis are about 10 euros to lassi and 6 to argostolli. Anyway if you are looking for peace and tranquillity I can recommend no better place book it while its still available you won't be sorry, Thank you again for the fabulous three weeks.

Stayed for a week it wasn’t long enough hotel spotless ,Petro and Maria are a brilliant couple nothing was to much bother,made everyone welcome,and not forgetting Rocky the dog.met some brilliant people and hoping to return next May has to be good I never go to the same hotel twice hoping to see you all then have to give it 10 out of 10.

Better than all the rest. A line from a well known song. Now for some serious business. I randomly chose a holiday to Kefalonia Greece, September 12th and chose Galaxy Hotel, and it was the best choice of country, and hotel, i have chosen one go. The Hotel owners Pedro, and Maria, are two brilliant individual, and great host. The hotel is brilliant to stay, if you need peace, quiet, relaxation, beaches, restaurants, trips to the near by town, and very friendly people. An overall great place, and great people. I loved the place so much, that i haven't stop talking about my trip when i got back to England. I have persuaded my my friend Gary to book his trip next year. I have made a decision to start travelling, with God's help. I may not go back there this year. Not because of anything bad or wrong, but i need to explore more of God's beautiful world, but will definitely go back, at the drop of a hat. Have found a favourite place to visit. I cannot fault the place, even if a had problems with the shower, door, or anything else That cannot be compared to the lovely service, friendly, helpful, host Maria, and Pedro offered. I can't stop talking, You would have to get on over to Greece, and stay at Galaxy Hotel. Go on get a move on, start planning your holiday today.

2 star hotel with 5 star owners nothing was to much trouble for Petra's and Maria wonderful couple this hotel is so homely basic but spotlessly clean. Located between lassi and argostoli a few local tavernas with good food within walking distance but the main places you will need a taxi to get there at around 8 Euro. Beachs in lassi are beautiful views from hotel are stunning with plenty of rocky coves to explore, went with a group of friends and had a fantastic time Oskar restaurant a must to visit

Was a wonderful place to say nothing was to much trouble for Petros and the lovely Maria it was a very relaxing holiday,rooms were very clean with air con and wifi, the salt water pool was lovely for a swim ..... the continental breakfast was wonderful with a lot of variety ... would definitely come back can not fault the hotel or staff .... nice place for a relaxing holiday.

The Galaxy Hotel is a place to come and relax. The rooms have air con and the rooms are always clean and cleaned every day. The breakfast is basic but enough with Lipton tea or Coffee. I take my own Tea bags as hot water is supplied. After returning from a day out or a walk you can sit back or lay down at the pool, or even take a swim in the Salt water pool. They have showers next to the pool if you just want to cool down. If you are feeling a bit peckish Maria will cook you lunch. Nothing to big but a nice Greek salad or Gyros. They have a small shop that has more than you think. From milk,pop,water,crisps to cleaning liquid for your clothing. The staff well what can I say. From the first thing in the morning you are greeted with a smile and a good morning. Throughout the day they are always making your stay as pleasant as possible. Maria and Petros are the most beautiful people you can ever meet. They are always there for you from morning to night and always ready to help with any matter you have. It's hard to put everything into words so don't take my word for it come and have a look for yourself.

This is our second stay at the wonderful Galaxy Hotel. We rarely return to places as there is so much of the world to see but this hotel has made us break our rules. Its position is Idyllic, opposite a small beach and just around from the lighthouse. You may need a car, but taxi's are reasonable and easily called. This Hotel is made by the amazing owners Petros and Maria. Their hospitality knows no bounds. They work hard all day to make your holiday the best it can be. They are making improvements to the hotel all the time. This year there is a new layout to the complimentary breakfast room and some rooms have new bathrooms. Every where is kept beautifully clean. With linen changes every few days. And towels changed when you leave them in the shower to be changed. The hotel runs an honesty bar around the pool, help yourself and pay later. And the pool is a salt water pool, so relaxing. If you love greek holidays, this hotel is perfect for you. Its perfect for us.
