“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

So this was our fourth trip back to the Alkyon and it just keeps on getting better.

Following a refurb last year this hotel now feels and looks much swisher. For us, this hotel has one of the best views across Mykonos for sunsets, yet is positioned beside a (steep!) footpath so you are in the centre of town within 5/10mins.

Add to this comfy beds, lovely staff and reasonable prices I would recommend the Alkyon to anyone wanting to visit Mykonos. The only negative is the walk/climb back up from town, but this is the price you pay for a stunning view.

And now they're serving cocktails this place just got a whole lot better! The mojito is superb!!

Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Request a room on the front, underneath the pool facing over the Mykonos town

Whoever assumes Mykonos is only all about partying, needs to stay at Mykonos Town.

Mykonos town is kinda the central place to stay. The island is very small and no beach is further than around a 30 min -40min drive. Mykonos town is like a welcome change from the party beaches of Paradise etc. However, the town itself is a quaint lil town, overrun by tourists and a pain to find parking or even peaceful silence.

Alkyon Hotel was perfectly located. Sophia was a pleasure to be with. Always smiling and cheerful and ready to go out of her way to make sure you are comfortable.

The sunset here was spectacular. The pool is more like for a namesake but it does its job. The place has a serene calm around it which is perfect after a long night of partying.

As people have complained about the 15min hike from the town to the place, which is justified but its worth it. Also, due to it being located kinda on the outskirts of the town, you dont face any traffic when you decide to head out towards the other beaches.

Pros: Sunset & a Peaceful setting
Cons: The hike gets irritating

We selected Alkyon hotel because of all the excellent reviews and they were all right on the mark. This is a terrific place to stay in Mykonos town, with perfect hosts. Sophia and her team are wonderful at making you feel at home straight away and they provide a nice atmosphere to relax and enjoy Mykonos.The room was spotless, the price was excellent, and the location was great. Thanks for a super stay!

Our experience was excellent from start to finish. Pick up and return to the port was seamless. The property is beautifully and in excellent condition. Family owned and operated. Wonderful view and easy walk to the old town. A note of clarification that although the hotel description says coffee in the lobby, it is not clear that there is a charge for it.

A friend and I stayed at Alkyon for a week in October and I can't wait to go back. The hotel itself is very good value for money.The rooms are clean, spacious and modern. The breakfast is delightful and the swimming pool is a good size. The location in my opinion is really good. It is very close to Mykonos town where you can go on foot or hire a quad bike.It is on the top pf the hill where you have the opportunity of the stunning views that you see in their online web site.The staff there is beyond professional - they made us feel like we were at home. They looked after us so well.Thanks Sophia & family!I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone considering a holiday in Mykonos.

I went in this hotel on my own in the middle of August when it was packed of people and I enjoyed it, even the island was full.The hotel was really nice and refurbished with nice rooms and pool.I was picked up from the port coming from Paros and driven directly to the hotel by the hotel's bus.My room was beautiful and clean with a nice balcony where I could see the sunset and the port.Sofia the front desk lady was very polite and friendly to me.She helped me by giving me a local map, explain me how to get around and organising an ATV to drive and see all these that she advised me.I will be back in this hotel and I will recommend it to all my friends!I had the best time.
