Loved this hotel. Stayed here for 3 nights on a 10-night trip in western Crete (the other places we stayed were in Chania, Rethymno and Heraklion). It is an awesome location for the big three beaches: Balos, Elafonissi and Falasarna. We didn’t want to stay in Kissamos and this was perfect. The village of Kaliviani has a lot to offer. It is small but has excellent tavernas. If you need a supermarket, pharmacy etc. than Kissamos is only a few miles away. The hotel has only 5 rooms. All were redone 2 years ago so they feel new. Tile floors, great bedding, new bathrooms etc. with nice balconies with a great view. We left the balcony doors open at night. Can’t remember the last time I work up to the sound of a rooster. Ioannis is an awesome host. I was nervous that breakfast would not be great as it is a small hotel. However, it was wonderful. Eggs cooked to order. Great bread, fruits, yogurt, honey cold cuts – food that tastes like it should. The only improvement I could see would being able to get a cappuccino in the morning as I am not a fan of Greek coffee. However, there is a great place down the street that does these (Kampanari restaurant / café). Overall a great experience and would be happy to stay there again!

The hotel is situated in a tiny village, 3 restaurants and a supermarket just outside the town of Kissamos. The setting is ideal for a 2 or 3 night stay. The owner,Ioannis,is a charming man and his communication very good. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. At first I thought the breakfast was a little over priced, however it was a very good fresh breakfast. The area is lovely for walking and has 2 of the best beaches in Crete. Balos beach is spectacular. An 8 km dirt track drive then 2 km easy mountain path walk down to the beach. I believe it's packed in the summer, so April, May, end September and October are an ideal time.

The Hotel was clean & very comfortable, the rooms were good size. Perfect view of the Aegean Sea off the balcony, which had comfortable chairs & a drying rack. Yanni, the owner was delightful to talk to, very helpful & made us a wonderful fresh breakfast each morning. The little town, 2 minutes walk from the hotel offered several restaurants with good food.

It’s an easy good place to spend some nights in your way to Balos and other beaches in the west. A simple and made for you at the moment breakfast, as we like, is always appreciated. Rooms are clean, simple and with a view to the sea. There is a nice typical Greek restaurant in a walking distance (almost full even in October). Easy, easy…

Highly recommend Ioannis and his very nice, beautiful Hotel. We never get the chance to stay in such a nice hotel like the Kaliviani Traditional Hotel. Ioannis is an amazing host! The Rooms a lovely with a great view through the valley. The Breakfest, which is severed by Ioannis was great, yummy and more than enough. The boiled egg was perfect! BIG Thank you to Ioanins for his lovely Hotel. We´ll come again!

We stayed 5 nights in this nice guesthouse and had room number 5. The owner Ioannis is really nice and helpful with a great sense of hospitality. If you are interested he will give you a lot of great advice. The house just has 5 rooms, all with amazing view overlooking the village until the ocean. Cleaning was superb and bed and the bed linen pretty good. Next to the AC there even is a fan, so in spring or beginning of summer you don't need to use the AC. Safe is in the room. We felt really comfortable and had great days. Pretty close there are several nice restaurants and Kissamos is about 10 min by car. Right at the village of Kaliviani is the road to Balos starting. So you can be first at the beach if you start early. Another amazing beach is just 15min driving. Only minus: Would be great to have little breakfast included in the room rate. You can book it additionally for 10 EUR per person. In other area we had it included in comparable room prices. But in this area of Kissamos and Kaliviani the "House" was the best choice.

We returned to the familiar venue and the quality dishes. They created a new garden next. We had artichokes with local butter, mousaka and lamb meat all dishes were of high quality and hearty. We were treated twice as it is their custom. The cost is e20 pp. We will certainly return.

It’s a nice little place somehow in the middle of nowhere in a charming village called Kaliviani. It’s very close to phalasarna and balos beach. There are three nice tavernas around the corner of the hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean, simple but very charming deco. The host, Ioannis, is very welcoming and always available if you have questions or need recommendations for a rainy day. (Or a joke) The breakfast is rich and fresh with a lot of variety - we enjoyed the local pie (offered upon request). Recommended!
