I have generously marked Alexander House as V. Good as Tripadvisor ratings jump from average to Very Good. The truth is that the Hotel is GOOD to be more accurate and in true rating terms would sit between 3 and 4 star. The hotel is set in a level area down a fairly steep hill, so although provisions are made... More

Alexander House Hotel is not a place suitable for people who want to have crazy holidays (I would say the location even is not suitable for that). this is a place for families, couples, who are tired of noise of towns. A very nice staff (girls at reception, restaurant staff, bartenders, cleaners...everyone). the food is very nice (unfortunately there is... More

The hotel is simple, our room was a garden room, small and with small window and door.....some others were below us and I found it pretty claustrophobic at times. Facilities are basic with no frills. Most of staff very helpful and tried to sort out issues when they arose like not being picked up until very late for a trip... More

This hotel is simple, clean and without frills. The staff worked very hard to please, the food was varied, tasty, with greek specalities at nearly every meal. For salad lovers it was paradise; Unfortunately, the resort is extremely isolated and public transport nearly non existent. To visit the island you have to either rent a car or pay for trips....

We have just returned after a week at this lovely hotel. I was worried after reading some of the reviews on here but found the hotel to be just right for us and very good value for money. The food was varied, tasty and plentiful and there was additional cake and cookies available in the afternoon as well as ice... More

With regard to the room itself the story is positive: spacious and clean. However, but for one morning we had to shower with cold water despite mentioning it twice at the reception. Also the airco was not functioning well, We were glad to be here in May and not in August! The food however was not as expected based on... More

I have been staying at Alexander House for the past 15 years whenever I'm in Crete. The location gives an excellent base to explore the rest of the island whilst stlll being close to the airport and quiet. The hotel is a family run business. It is now run by the sun of the original owner 'Manoli' who brings a... More

My husband and I had a truly relaxing holiday here in October 2012. The setting is outstanding, beautiful views over the picture perfect blue sea. We found it to be an ideal location for visiting the rest of Crete. The atmosphere in the hotel was calm and extremely well organised. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner and the... More

Hi There Like the previous reviewer ‘andrew m’, my wife and I have also just come back, Sept 6th 2012, from an 11 night stay at the Alexander House Hotel and I would first off like to comment on some of the things he wrote.
