Reviewed August 26, 2013

very convenient for skiathos town and numerous places to eat, lots of lovely cobbled streets. Staff very friendly - also very convenient for airport, our taxi had us at the hotel within 20 mins of landing.

Room Tip: 201 to 205 and 301 to 305 will give a view of the harbour

This Hotel & resort was recommended to us by a friend at work. It was every thing she said and more The hotel was nicer than a lot of hotels that i have stayed in Greece we had a second floor room which the bathroom had been refurbished, the breakfast area was on the roof of the hotel facing the harbour this is a beautiful place to sit and eat in the morning very picturesque.
The actual island is just stunning plenty of beautiful beaches to visit which are easily accessed by the buses that run around the island.
Absolutely loved this holiday and we will be going again next year.

Room Tip: The bath rooms on the second and third floor have all been refurbished. the bathrooms on the first...

The rooms may not be the best rooms you've ever been in however as a base this hotel is fantastic, situated right on the harbour. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The view from the breakfast terrace is the reason we booked this hotel, and it didn't disappoint. Wow what a start to the day.

The best choice for quality / price. Perfect location for both disco that and for the walks on the main street. If you want to take the autubus, still much better off the scooter, the bus stop is just outside the hotel.
Excellent terrace for dinner and breakfast, the beautiful view offered.
Do not underestimate that is the only hotel in Skiathos with half board

Just came back from a fantastic week in this hotel. We paid euro 20 a day for a sea view and it was worth every cent. We were also in room 204 and had a brilliant view of the harbour so we could see ferrries coming and going and planes coming into land The hotel was brilliantly located 5 mins from the main street. The aircon was a must and the wifi was useful. Room cleaned after breakfast every morning. The breakfast was good - cereals greek yoghurt honey eggs bacon.sausage and the hotel bar reasonably priced for mythos & snacks. There was also a pool. The staff were so friendly & helpful. Excellent taverna next to the sea. Bliss

Room Tip: Sea view rooms cost Euro 20 a night but was worth it

16th year in skiathos and now im 18 it was time to explore for myself ! my girlfriend and i Stayed in hotel Alykon for the first time on the 12th of July till the 26th, and as soon as we walked through the door we were greeted with warm welcomes and shown to our room (207) the room was large with a comfy double bed and large balcony, the bathroom was typically Greek but it worked for what we needed, I think people see one cracked tile and then judge the whole place! The room was cleaned every day with new bedding and towels, breakfast was what you made of it plenty of choice and with a view like that over the port from your table you can't really complain.
Advice to people who want to come to skiathos yes mopeds will be going backwards and forwards all day but its Greece !
If your planning a trip here hire a car or a moped and explore ! It's the best way to see the island !
Hotel Alykon is what you make of it, it's clean and the rooms are adequate ! Your only sleeping there anyway ! Why dwell on the dodgey coloured bathroom furniture !

Had a lovely room overlooking New Mariner - cost extra,but was well worth it !! Hotel is fab,staff very friendly,and our cleaner in room 204 was a little gem....pool and bar area were spotless - as was everywhere in this Hotel. It was great to have an actual bath - not just a shower (most unusual in Greece). Skiathos is a beautiful island,unique.....and the Town is fantastic - There is so much to see and do,and the boat trips were great...The old port is someting else,and the Sea U Restaurant was good for a lunchtime pint (food was good there too !!)all in all it was a wonderful experience !!!
