Very tired and dated, needs investment. Good location and air con in the room. Pool area particularly poor and as for the decor in the corridor area, well...seeing is believing! In terms of the breakfast...think lower end discount food.

Love this hotel!! Great location close to sea front restaurants and the bus terminal. The reception staff are extremely friendly and the rooms are spotlessly clean. Yes, they are typically basic Greek but we wouldn't want them to be different - it's all part of the Greece experience. Free air conditioning is a bonus. We had a room on the... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable - all the bathrooms have been refurbished and are 100% improvement on the old ones! The staff are wonderful - very friendly and helpful-nothing is too much trounle. The outdoor roof terrace where breakfast... More

This is our third holiday in Skiathos and our second time at the Alkyon. It's basic by UK standards, but for Greece is very good. Rooms are spotless, cleaned every day, and we had a bath with a proper shower which you don't always get in Greek hotels. The lounge areas are lovely, and the view from the roof terrace... More

Friendly reception staff who were helpful when required. Hotel from outside looks quite nice, but it is much bigger than it looks. 4 Floors of very long corridors. The doors to the rooms along the corridor are painted and makes it look like a prison. Rooms are very sparing, bathroom had been updated and was ok, our towels were fine... More

We started to feel apprehensive when the receptionist insisted that the Accommodation Provider (Magic Rooms!!) had not informed the hotel of our request for a double room, on one of the higher floors with a sea view as stated on our booking confirmation, and that as the hotel was full our request could not be met. The room we were... More

We just were in Skiathos for six days and rented a room in the back for 90 Euro/night. It overlooked another hotel/road. The balcony was nice for drying towels but not a place we would sit out. The breakfast was decent, a choice of cold cereal, fruit cocktail, yogurt, and eggs (hard boiled and scrambled) as well as several kinds... More

Agree with other comments about the poor breakfast and diabolical coffee. Fresh fruit, a toaster and better quality cereals please! Only ate there once. Shame as the view is spectacular. Had a good room on the side so could see harbour from the balcony. Bathroom refurb was good, and although bedroom was shabby they were both kept spotlessly clean with... More
