Hotel Booking

We recommend booking your accommodation at the official congress venue; The Galaxy Hotel.

The Galaxy Hotel offers a 5 star luxury experience, artfully blended with innovative modern comforts. Elegant minimalism, polished modernity and plush materials in soothing neutral tones define a décor that inspires effortless comfort and style.


Located in a quiet area just outside the centre of Heraklion, the hotel is housed in an immaculately renovated building of timeless design on an accessible area with parking.

How to get there


Heraklion has an international airport, well serviced with flights from across continental Europe.  However, given the popularity of Heraklion for tourists and visitors from across the world, we recommend booking travel early to secure best rates and avoid disappointment.


Transport from Heraklion International airport to the centre is around 3km and costs approx €20 each way by taxi, although there are frequent public transport services, taking around 20 minutes.
