“Awesome owner and good location”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Awesome owner, very friendly and happy to help with anything you want, and will come and have a drink with you in the restaurant in the evening with freebies. Very good location, about 20 min walk from town centre, or taxi is only €5 so easy and cheap to get around. Good restaurant downstairs, nice food, mostly cooked by your host Theo. Rooms are okay, small showers and no bath, but awesome seaview, a safe and a small fridge which makes things handy. Breakfast is nice and adequate, but sometimes a bit slow in filling in with missing items from the buffet. All and all very good value for money and will probably go again.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the sea view! It's worth it.

We arrived to the hotel much later than we had planned and we were welcomed promptly and told that we would receive a free shot an appetizer from the kitchen which was a pleasant surprise. After we were walked to our room and were very surprised to see that we had an ocean front view with a balcony which was awesome. The next morning we had breakfast which was very tasty and then followed up with dinner that same night. The staff and Theo were very impressive the food was delicious and the time we had at hotel alexis was very enjoyable. Thanks!

Hotel Alexis is the perfect distance from Chania centre. There are two routes to walk, neither very far but also the buses are easy and cheap. The hotel is set on top of its own little hill and is nice and quiet. There are a few beach options, down the hill and to the left of hotel are two. The first one you come to is not great but if you keep walking the next cove has a very nice beach that is fabulous for swimming. My room overlooked the city, the sea and the white mountains, was exceptionally clean, and had everything I needed for my weeks stay. Breakfast was great, lots of choice and although I tended to eat during the day when out and about, I did visit Theo's restaurant a couple of nights and food and choice are great.
The local buses are also brilliant for visiting most places on Crete, the timetables are very easy to understand and prices low, so a car is not a necessity.
Thank you Theo and family for great relaxing week, I will return soon i hope with my children xx

As many of the other reviews, ours will be the same for the positive ones. We felt like we got taken very good care of. Guidence, help and many laughs together with the staff we had. It was a feeling of coming home to your lovely family who you haven't seen in a long time. The cooking is royal. The restaurant is a peace of heaven with a view which no words can describe, no picture can copy the fenomen of iris you have in your natural eye. It is very rare you meet people with this kind of heart of friendlyness.
We also met some people we got really close to, and still are in touch with even though we live half the lenght of planet earth apart. The atmosphere at this hotel is the atmosphere you only dream of.
The hotel is lying in a perfectly distance to the center of Xania. Not far to walk, good connections with buses, and the price for a taxi is very low. The beach is in a 3 minutes walking distance from the bed inside the room. If you haven't been in Chania before, and don't know which hotel to spend your time, do not hesitate to book this hotel. Even if you have been in Chania before, and might already have a favorite hotel in this town, I still strongly recomend to stay at Alexis hotel. If you are so lucky to actually get a room here, you should start smiling constantly until you take your frist steps into this beutiful place of a building, Even though your holiday isn't before in 9 months, keep smiling. Because it is worth it:)
We are thinking about having our wedding here, If its okay for Theo, Kaisa and ofcourse the boss: Jani.
Thank you for our first stay in August 2012. Hugs and kisses from Øyvind and Jenny

I found the hotel basically wonderful, a little hard to find but once you get there, it is a wonderful place. We had a room facing the beach & enjoyed watching the sunset, very magical !! We were there for a few days & found no problem getting in & out of Chania. Theo was a very amicable host and a great chef. The food was restaurant quailty, faultless - we would come back for the food alone, overall had a wonderful time & it was great that the Wi-fi was free, hoping to get back there one day.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the beach.

Stay period: 2 nights

Our personal experience was that of exceptionally friendly staff. We noted that the owner was very friendly and made a big effort. He had been around in the evening and in the morning. A manager who led from the front by example for his staff.

Bedroom:
Air conditioning come at a cost, the owner was good enough to give it to us for free. This certainly put him and the hotel in our good books.

Hotel Restaurant:
Beautiful sea view in the mornings
Beds tidied and made daily

Comfortable beds.
Fridge in the room

Balcony:
Nice garden furniture

Bathroom:
En suite, tidied daily.
Bin emptied daily.
Toiletries provided at the start of our stay.
Hairdryer in the bathroom

Meals:
On our first morning we had to leave early to see the Samarian Gorge, the owner very kindly arranged a packed breakfast for us to take with us in the morning.
On the final morning we selected the continental breakfast which was excellent.

Facilities:
Beach can be seen from the hotel and only 2 mins drive in the car or 10 mins walk.

Miscellaneous:
TV (CRT) in room, though not too many English-speaking channels

Thanks Theo for a wonderful stay. We would certainly come back and recommend you to others!!!
