We have spent two full weeks in Kaliviani Traditional Rooms and I can confirm: it's really as nice as on the pictures of their webpage. The family running this hotel is absolutely friendly and handles the travellers' special wishes accordingly. The hotel serves dinner only for its guests and in 50m distance you find a great typical tavern with live music etc. and one more small tavern. The hotel has a very nice bar lounge (is actually much better than on the pictures) with jazz/ rock music being played what I appreciated very much. The beach - Falassarna is a clear choice, one of the best beaches of Crete.

Room Tip: All 5 rooms have see view and balcony - very nice ambiente.

The hotel location: 15 min to Falassarna beach und the city/port Kissamos, 40 min to Chania, 1 hour to Elafonisi (top tip). The hotel bar was great, there was live jazz music, the restaurants were very nice. We love the view from our window.

Kaliviani is a perfect hotel to spend some days visiting western Crete. Located far away from the noisy big city, Kaliviani is a guesthouse or better your house abroad to stay in. Ioanis speaks fluently english, spanish and of course Greek. The place with not many rooms is a paradise for the ones who are looking for a quiet stay. The dinner that we tried, wonderful, the raki with the desserts fantastic and prices like in a typical taverna (good) . Being living in Greece, I am familiar with the Greek Cousine but this Cretean style, even for the greek salad is perfect. Summarizing, Kaliviani is a high recommended place close to the main beaches, Balos, Falassarna and even Elaffonissos. Enjoy your stay as we did it

Room Tip: All rooms with seaview and cool in summer

A very quiet place, beautiful and in a strategic position to visit the sorroundings of Chania, if you are renting a car.
Ian and his mother are very kind and the cuisine of Ian's mother is fantastic.
If we'll return to Crete, sure we will be here once more.

My husband and I just spent 9 nights in Kaliviani Hotel. Gianni and his mother made us feel like home!
This small and cozy hotel is in the middle of olive trees with a very nice panoramic view on the harbor.
The hotel has 5 rooms, all with balcony.
We were given a triple room, making our stay even more confortable. The room was very clean, with clean towels and bed linen every one-two days. There were air conditioning, TV, fridge, Wi-Fi connection.
The hotel offers also a free pc available for the guests.
The breakfast was gorgeus, prepared freshly every morning (orange juice, yoghurt with honey, bread and marmelade, eggs, coffe, tea or cappuccino) and served directly by the owner. It was much more than we could eat!!!
We found this hotel very convenient as a starting point to visit Gramvoussa and Balos beach, being located at the beginning of the road that brings you to this beautiful beach. If you go there by car, be prepared to a challenging 1 hour drive!! But the view and the beach worth the trip!
In 20 minutes you can reach Falasarna, another beach you can't miss! We went there for 5 days!! To reach Elafonissi beach, instead, the trip is about 45 minutes. Another visit that we enjoyed is Paleochora.
You can always ask Gianni, that will provide all suggestions to the best places to visit from here.
The village of Kaliviani itself is very small, and honestly during the evening there is not much to do.
Anyway the restaurant of the hotel is very good, so do not miss it!!
We spent some evenings in Chania, that is very nice to visit and it is full of tavernas, pubs, shops, and some other evenings in Kissamos, that is a not-turistic city but it has some nice tavernas and bars too.
We would like to thank again Gianni and his family to contribute to our wonderful vacation, and in case we'll visit again that part of Crete we'll find the time to visit them again!!
