I really had a best time in Creta and one of those things that made it perfect was a comfy hotel. Free wi-fi, air condition and breakfast. Helpful and kind staff. (I had a little problem with my door. It took about to seconds and it was fixed. Impressive!) Hotel was really clean,in the inside and the outside. This time I was alone but next time I will take my family with me. This hotel is suitable for any kind and size of families. Location was very quiet and it was only 50 m to the beach. There was enough shops and restaurants to choose. Very easy to go to organized tours or take a bus on your own. When I return to Creta, will Alkion hotel be my first choise!

Very nice hotel with family atmosphere and cretan hospitality is just 2 minutes by walk from beautiful sandy beach Kato Stalos and about 6 km far from Chania city and about 20 minutes by walk from Agia Marina - touristic area. The hotel is not very big, but offer many thing. You can find there some games for play, massage (appointment), gym, swimming pool, pool bar. The breakfast were very delicious, plenty of choices...youghurt, honey, jams, nutella, biscuits, more kind of bread, cheese, ham, fruit, vehetable, traditional cretan pies, coffee, tea, water, juice etc. You can enjoy your breakfast inside where is sitting area or outside in front of the hotel in small garden with nice atmosphere. All the hotel was very clean, all areas and pretty quiet. Room was nice with enough place, wardrobe, TV (just pity was i didnt have greek channels), hairdryer, fridge, coffeemaker, balcony with sitting outside. Bathroom was enought big with shower and towels. Room was cleaned every day except Sunday and lady, which cleans changed also towels and also bedclothes twice per week, it was really sufficient. The big advantage of the hotel is also very nice staff, manager, lady on the breakfast were very polite and kind and always very care about their guests to feel as at home and dont miss anything. Another perfect thing there is free wi-fi in all hotel, also at room! This is great and i can say many more stars hotel dont offer this so it is very big plus for this hotel!
In one sentence: I can only recommended this hotel to everybody, is good value for money, great services, great location, very friendly and helpfull staff! I hope i will be back next time again i was very satisfield with my stay in this hotel! Thank you for everything!

We were about as last minute as we could have been booking this hotel (turned up 5 minutes after booking it around 7pm on a friday after an issue with another hotel) and were pleasantly surprised to find they had already started setting up the room. They told us to come back in an hour and we had a very clean, small room which smelt of cigarettes unfortunately but the beds were comfortable and the breakfast was lovely. We enjoyed our short stay but probably won't be returning until the rooms have undergone a bit of an update.

Very nice budget hotel. Rooms are clean, breakfast was very tasty. Free wifi and air condition. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Easy to get from airport, the bus stop is near the hotel. The beach is quite good and only 50 meters from Alkion. Pool is also nice and quiet.

We are just back from Crete where we spent a week in Alkion. This hotel is very basic but the atmosphere is so nice and friendly. The staff is just great, always happy to give you advise what to see and where to eat. We went to few places they recommended and we were never disappointed.
Breakfast was very good. Rooms perfect and clean. This place is a good value for money.
We would definitely go back there again.

We have been in many hotels around the world, but Alkion is beyond imagination- in a very positive sense. Prices were low, rooms extremly clean. You can eat your breakfast outside, surrounded by flowers and grapewines. Good localization, few steps to the bus stop and to the sea. On the other side of the street is restaurant with live greek music so you can hear it from the balcony:) And owners! They were so friendly and helpful- really goodhearted people. They make this place feel like home.

Good location, friendly and helpful staff (Manolis and Katerina). We went to the hotel by local bus from Chania Airport. (Chania Airport - Chania and Chania - Kato Stalos).
Breakfast was very good.
Our room was perfect (no.103) and clean (everyday cleaned, expect on Sunday).
The beach is great, only five minutes walk. 2 sunbeds&1 umbrella were 6 Euro.
