Alexis Hotel, Chania
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Parigoria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 24, 2013

We stayed at Alexis for a few nights and had a great time! It was our first time visiting Greece (Europe, actually). We stayed in a few different hotels during our vacation and Alexis was among the best of them. "Home-like" atmosphere, super friendly staff (and family), short walk to the BEAUTIFUL beach, clean rooms, and a DELICIOUS restaurant/bar (Theodosi) attached to the hotel. Really, if staying here, you must eat there at least once. YUM!

I would definitely recommend Alexis if ever traveling in Chania. You will not be disappointed!

Thanks for your hospitality, Theo :)

Our stay at Alexis was a pleasant one, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Theo showed us places to visit and was really helpful. I recommend this place for those looking for a simple hotel, that is clean and close to the city, at a very affordable price. Dont forget to eat at the hotel restaurant! Fantastic food!

Good points
Excellent staff, friendly and helpful
Bad points
Dirty sheets/blankets, no double beds, very noisy building
I was left unsure what to make of the Alexis. The staff are second to none but there are simple things not done well, most concerning was that the sheets were not as clean as I would expect. It is located slightly out of town which is good for parking but the walk into and out of town was actually a little unpleasant after the nice sights and sounds of the Old town.
I actually think it is not that cheap compared with where we stayed in Crete afterwards but maybe it is Ok for Chania?
I think the bottom line was a lack of atmosphere and the lack of clear direction - it feels like a backpackers but the restaurant, which was average when we went, is a little more upmarket.
Would I stay again, no, I'd try somewhere else.

Glad you were well taken care of by the staff! If there was an issue with the linen, I am sure the cleaning staff would be more than happy to provide a new set!
Double beds are available, but you need to book your stay with us in Advance, not last minute, because we are very busy and they sell out fast!

We are very seasoned travellers in Greece, and this was by far the best appointed hotel for the price we have stayed in. Theo and his familly could not be bettered for the hospitality they showed all their guests. The rooms were clean and kept spotless by the hardworking housekeeper.
Breakfast was workmanlike, but dinner was fantastic with a starter to share and a main course each from the delicious modern Greek a la carte menu.
Many reviews have mentioned that the bedrooms can experience noise at night- but this is mostly usual hotel noise and neighbours dogs barking which are beyond the control the management- so pack earplugs if you are noise sensitive.
Both excellent beaches, and Chania itself are within easy walking distance, this combined with the foods, rooms and welcome make this hotel incredible value.

Room Tip: Higher up has better views and is less noisy but bear in mind there is no lift.

This is an amazing hotel for the price, with all the good points everyone has mentioned (owner, cleanliness, atmosphere). However, we were disappointed with our 'side sea view', which was probably the worst in the whole hotel. While the room was spotless, the blankets were dirty and stained, the hot water wasn't that hot and the shower leaked all over the floor no matter what you did to prevent it.

It was also a great pity that the restaurant had closed when we got there in the third week of October. We'd been looking forward to that so much!

It's true that light sleepers will have a problem. Even with ear plugs I found the day and night barking and howling of the dog tied up outside the ground floor was really annoying, and the noise from other residents does echo around the building.

Breakfast consists of the most surprising things, which we really enjoyed after the first shock. Mashed potatoes, spaghetti, wonderful roasted vegetables, spare ribs......you name it, it was there one day or another!

The care and consideration of the owner and family really shows.

All in all, a memorable experience, excellent for the price, but not perfect!

We stayed at the Alexis Hotel in early October and were blown away by the amount of hospitality we received. Theo is a bright, incredibly hard working, caring person who will go out of his way to make sure your stay is nothing short of perfect. It was clear that he adores his work! We had our questions answered and endless help setting up car rentals, bike rentals, and boat excursions. I would highly suggest taking the boat excursion to Gramvousa & Balos. The staff is very friendly and the restaurant was outstanding! We were given free raki upon arrival, and a free appetizer and more raki with dinner :)...it was fantastic! The rooms are excellent. Our's had a balcony with an excellent view of the oceanfront and town. The bathroom had everything you need and was very, very clean. After our stay we were shocked that we didn't pay twice the price. We would suggest that anyone going anywhere nearby, take the opportunity to stay at the Alexis Hotel! You'll be doing yourself a huge favor!

Room Tip: Go for the oceanfront view and don't miss a meal at the restaurant!!!

We decided to book the hotel after checking many positive reviews. Unfortunately, our stay was not pleasant. It was true that the manager and his family were very helpful and friendly to all guests, the sea view from our room was stunning day and night, and WiFi was available through the building (no TV in room). However, we had some negative experiences.

First of all, the building was just like a theater. All noises from ground floor and basement kept echoing on to the second floor. Some evenings, the restaurant offered music until late night, and we could not sleep until it finished. Also, we were woken up in the middle of night when a guest kept knocking someone's room door (not hard knock) on the first floor, and dog barking in early mornings. Thus, if you are noise-sensitive, be careful.

Also, when we stayed there, temperature in evening was below 20C, and was quite cool. When we tried to use blanket, we were shocked how filthy it was. There were so many unknow stains on both blankets, and looked like not being washed for years. We had a replacement, but they were also filthy with many stains. After using them (no choice!) for one night, my wife and I had irritating skin and skin bites (nearly 10 bites each by the end of our stay). We were not sure if the irritation and bites came from the beds or blankets. But it was clearly different from mosquito's bite.

Furthermore, even though the temperature in evenings was cool, the shower temperature was not adjustable. It had only "cold-ish" warm water. We turned on a hot tap only, but no difference. According to the manager, the water was heated by solar panel, and not boiler. It might be hot enough in the summer, but too cold for Spring/Autumn. Both of us were nearly having cold.

Breakfast was just OK. It would be nice if omelette/sausage/bacon were warm or at leaste re-heated (they were cold every day). Also, breakfast started from 08.30, you might have to miss it if you have early-start.

Overall, our stay was not "happy stay" and will not stay there again.
(I'm sorry if you are disappointed by my negative comments. However, this is what we actually experienced.)

Glad to hear the staff was helpful and you loved the sea view from the room!
It is unfortunate you had some negative experiences...Alexis hotel is not for everyone.
The music is offered for your enjoyment, an experience of Greek music and culture.
Mosquitoes are common in Crete, the citronella candles in the room should do the work!
Take advantage of the packed breakfast offering if you are an early riser!!
