“A fantastic hotel,offering stunning views, excelent service at a great price”
Reviewed August 18, 2010

The Alkyon is listed as a 4 star hotel, but it is actually much better. Situated a short taxi ride, or a steep walk from the town, it overlooks the town, harbour and the Agean sea- all to savour over an excellent breakfast on the large balcony. The hotel has a lovely well maintained pool, again with those stunning views, and a pool bar. The rooms are air conditioned, tastefuly furnshed, & are kept clean by trusted friendly staff
As a famliy run hotel you really cant go wrong. Sophia is fantastic, a font of all knowledge, who will help you with all your enquries about the Island, likewise you will meet her mother and father, who are also available to make your stay memorable . In summary you wont go wrong with this choice , family, gay and singles are welcome. just enjoy

I recently stayed at this hotel for 11 nights. I travelled with another female friend who arranged the holiday through a travel agent in London. We paid in advance and it was not cheap. We were really looking forward to the holiday, my friend had a very hard winter nursing her very ill husband. It looked fantastic on the website and all the reviews talked about the wonderful Sophia and family. The hotel website states that all the rooms have sea views.

We arrived mid evening and were given a very bland welcome from a young lady - surely this could not be the hostess. We were shown to a small room at the back of the hotel with no window, only french windows looking on to waste ground and a private house. A tiny shower room and no bath. Two single beds pushed together on a double headboard. We had requested two beds preferably 2 double beds. We made it clear that this was not the room we were expecting and that we had expected that we would have a sea view and a bath. The young lady assured us that she would sort it out the next day but that we would have to stay in this room for that night only.

The next day we were shown a room in an annex of an inferior standard. It had a bath and a side view of the sea. This room was practically on a main road - noisy, dusty etc. We made it very clear that this was unacceptable and that we were very disappointed. She suggested that we find another hotel. From this point the attitude of the young lady who turned out to be Sophia was very negative. She made us feel totally unwelcome and very uncomfortable. Most visitors to the hotel were there for 3 or 4 days - we were there for 11 days and she had the opportunity to recover the situation at any point by moving us to a room with a nice view. It was not a lot to ask as most rooms had balconies or terraces with a lovely view of the sea. We were 2 ladies in our 50's who were looking for a relaxing holiday including spending time in our room and having a glass of wine on the balcony etc. Instead we felt we were being punished for asking for what we expected. We asked everyday for the first week if there was an opportunity to be moved to a new room. The answer was always no.

The hotel is in a stunning location with a magnificent view over Mykonos town. We did have a very poor experience but other guests commented on the fact that Sophia was exhausted and snapped at guests because she was tired and was running the place solo with the help of her parents. Maybe they need to invest in more hired help. Hotels need good staff who make the guests welcome. We may have got off to a bad start by complaining but then we were the paying customer. Alkyon could have rescued the situation but the dug their heels in and refused, leaving us to lanquish at the back of the hotel like 2nd class citizens.

In our 6 weeks of travel, and having stayed in some very nice accommodation, the Alkyon rates as one of the best. When we researched accommodation on Mykonos, we were attracted to Alkyon by the positive reviews, the panoramic views and the reasonable price, we were not disappointed. The hospitality was as good as it gets. The family who run the Alykon, know how to run a business. We loved the breakfasts (included in price) from the hotel balcony and lazing by the beautiful pool, and in both cases being able to take in the great the views over Mykonos town and port. Being at the top of the hill over looking the town, there was a bit of an incline just below the hotel however it wasn't too steep and the walking track next to the hotel got you into the centre of the town in under 10 minutes. We enjoyed the walk, particularly the lower end as you walk through typical Mykonos postcard alley ways. When we checked out, we left our bags in the hotel's storage room, returning later in the day for a free lift to the ferry. Hotel had free internet access with both wifi and PC in the lounge/bar area. Our only cricisim, though minor, was that the room lacked a fridge. Overall though an excellent hotel. Looking forward to going back one day.

Before staying at Alykon I studied all the travel websites to ensure I found the perfect place for myself and group of friends to stay for 1 week in Mykonos.. All the reviews raved about this place and we were not dissapointed. The hotel is family run by Sophia and her parents George & Maria which makes your stay ever so special. All requests are met with a genuine smile and willigness to help. The hotel pool is gorgeous if you don't want to venture to the beaches.The rooms are clean and serviced daily and in my opinion offer you all you need for your stay in Mykonos. I would suggest to book the suites as the room are huge with a gorgeous balcony over the Mykonos town. Thank you to Alykon family for a memorable stay.. Hope to see you again soon! Fiona and crew from Sydney!

I stayed at the Alkyon Hotel in Mykonos with a group of 10 - one of which was my husband. The hotel was clean, gorgeous and spectacular in every way. What made it stand out the most was not its beauty - although that's what you notice first. The hospitality was like no other hotel I've ever been to. I travel a lot, and I've never stayed anywhere that even compares to the Alkyon. It's family owned, and by the time I left, I felt like I was a part of their family. Any recommendations/advice we needed were spot on, the friendliness was unmatched and our stay was pure perfection. Any one who gives this hotel a bad recommendation is clearly the type of person who is never pleased, because I can't think of one thing I would have changed. From here on out, I will definitely recommend Alkyon to all my friends and family, and the next time I visit Mykonos, I will definitely be staying there!!

There is so much to say about Hotel Alkyon. The views were spectacular, the accomodations were great, and we paid a very reasonable price (about the same price you might pay for a Hampton Inn, in the States). The hotel is family-owned and run. They are an extremely hospital family, even going as far to personally pick up our large group of 10 people from the port. They gave us great recommendations for restaurants and things to do. Very good people. I would recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of going to Mykonos. It even had a computer in the lobby with free internet access!
