My husband and I stayed at the Alkion for five days. If you don't want to spend a lot on a room, enjoy friendly staff, like simple and clean rooms and want to be centrally located-this is the place to go!! With a beach across the street, a bus line less than a block away and restaurants within walking distance-we found it hard to leave. The managment (a husband and wife team) are extremely accomodating. The pool is sparkling clean and the breakfasts were delicious!
Family oriented-although we didn't bring our kids. Trams tours of the Therisso Gorge are available (just a walk down the street). The tour is a couple of hours long and there is stop for food.
Car rentals are also just a short walk away and are relatively inexpensive. There is a cafe across the street-Tres Jolie that serves sweet breads if you miss breakfast. The management at the Alkion has made up a weight room in case you want to work out during your stay. We highly recommend spending the extra money for the air conditioning-it is worth it in the summer time!
We preferred the smaller, simple and friendly hotel over the more modern larger hotels. The management also has a family run store that will give you a discount when you mention that you're staying at the Alkion.
A small fridge is available in the room if you have leftovers.
We can't say enough about this place other than we highly recommend it!!
