“beautiful little hotel with amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Just returned from a week away at this beautiful little hotel with amazing views over Mykonos Town. The hotel is owned by a lovely family who ensure you have a very comfortable stay. From the moment we arrived the short transfer from the airport was swift and the information given by Sophia on check-in about the town and the island was very good. The rooms are spacious and beds incredibly comfortable with full bathroom (don't often get a bath in Greece). Each room has a nice little terrace with wicker chairs and lovely view of the sea. The public areas of the hotel are beautifully furnished and the lovely pool area has sunbeds with big thick cushions! Everyone mentions the hike down into town, and I must admit it nearly put us off staying here. However it's worth it for the amazing views and to be honest we walked into town during the day and also in the evening but got a taxi back at night - (only 4 euros). Mykonos in general seems more expensive than some of the other islands but there seems to be restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.Its also worth hiring a car of quad bike (which we did 20 euros a day) to discover the island. Delos is worth a visit on the ferry (takes about 20 mins)from Mykonos Town 17 euros return plus 5 euros for entry.

I absolutely recommend this hotel to EVERYONE! I spent two weeks in Greece and stayed at a variety of places ranging from a hostel for 10 euros a night all the way up to a 5-star hotel. Believe me when I say this is hands-down the best hotel in all of Greece! The views are amazing. The hotel is extremely clean. The rooms are spacious. The breakfast is delicious. And best of all, the hosts are AMAZING! Sophia is without a doubt the best concierge on the planet. She is not only extremely helpful with everything you could ask, but also seems genuinely happy to be of service. That is a rare thing in the hotel world. Sophia made our stay so wonderful that it exceeded all expectations. The hotel runs a free shuttle to take you to/from the port, Sophia arranged the rental of a moped for us, and she gave us the most accurately description of the island that we could have asked for. She has fantastic restaurant recommendations, wonderful entertainment insights, and made us feel truly welcome to stay at the hotel. Sophia also fluently speaks several languages including Greek (obviously), English, and French. She may speak others as well but those are the ones I heard. The price is extremely reasonable considering the great location, the amazing views, and the stellar service!

The location of the hotel is excellent - located on a hill overlooking Mykonos town, which provides for incredible views. It's only about 400 meters to walk down the hill to the town. The hike up and down the hill is very manageable for most people. However, in full disclosure, if you are a senior citizen or mobility-impaired, the hotel is probably in a very inconvenient location for you. If you don't fall into one of those two categories, this is absolutely the hotel for you!

Would highly recommend the Alkyon Hotel in Mykonos. Spotlessly clean, towels changed every day, breakfast is good. Day of check out we were able to stay in our room until 12 when our free transfer to the airport was ready.

The views were tremendous. Down side was the hike into town, great going down, but hard work returning, but taxi,s back are cheap

Room Tip: It does promise Internet through out, we had sea facing room 123, only had access in the room on day...

We've just returned from a one week stay at the Alkyon and could fault nothing. The whole experience was wonderful. Sophia and her family are lovely and could not do enough to ensure our holiday was a memorable experience.
The hotel is situated on the hill and it is quite a steep walk into the town which is not for the elderly or the infirm.

I stayed at this hotel with a group of friends in Summer 2011 and it was nothing short of a wonderful experience - starting with the complimentary bus that was sent to collect us from the airport. Once at the hotel, check in was a breeze and the reception area inviting. Sophia (the manager) answered any questions we had and was always super friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The view from the Alkyon is incredible - a major plus of the hotel. If I had to be picky, I'd say that a pool side bar would have been great. Would definitely stay again.

We went in this hotel last summer (July 2012) and we enjoyed it.It is a nice hotel, 500 meters from the city though but you get nice views.The staff there is very helpful and nice with the visitors.Swimming pool was fantastic with lounge chairs and a pool bar from where you could get nice snacks and drinks during the day.The only negative was the Wi-Fi connection.Sometimes we could not get strong signal.If we ever consider to go back we would not have had any hesitation to choose Alkyon for our stay.

I went in Alkyon as a part of a business trip in last September.This hotel is very well located 500 meters away from the city centre and it offers magnificent views of the town and the sea water.When I decided to visit Mykonos I already knew that I wanted a nice hotel in a peaceful location.So Alkyon was all these.They organised my pick up from the port (even though my ferry arrived late), a beautiful room with a big double bed and a nice balcony enjoying the sea.Breakfast was delicious with fresh meal products and it was prepared by the mother of the family (it is a family owned hotel).Sophia was very friendly and hospitable.When I was ready to leave I promised that I would be back and I will (I have already booked for this year)!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that are above of the reception area.These are very guiet and they offer nice view...
