We stayed at the Alkyon Hotel in Skiathos Town from 28th August 2013 for two weeks. When we arrived and checked in, we were allocated room 405, which was a side sea view room on the same floor as the Dining room. We were shown to our room by a male member of staff who took our bags in a separate lift. He showed us how the air con. Worked and the TV controls. The room had a refurbished bathroom, complete with full size bath, shower that had a shower head holder on the wall and shower curtain, built in hair dryer also included. A large wardrobe and separate section with five shelves. Another storage cupboard with fridge above. There was also a dressing table with large mirror and stool and more drawer space, two bedside cabinets, two chairs and a small table. Outside on the veranda there were two chairs and a round table. A good view towards the airport.
The room was cleaned daily and bath towels, hand towels and bath mat were changed every day. It also appeared that the bedding sheets and pillow cases were changed every other day.
The air conditioning was included, but a safety deposit box in reception was 15 euros per week.
The breakfast was a good mix of cereals, jams, yogurt, cold meats, cheese, breads, egg, bacon and sausage. Coffee, Tea and orange juice. You could eat inside with air con. Or outside in the sun with a Harbour view.
We did not use the pool or bar area, but it appeared to be popular with the Guests.
Guests were a mix of UK, Greek and Italian.
All of the staff were doing a first class job, with very special mention of Kiki and Georgina.
We enjoyed our stay at the Alkyon and are booking up for 2014. I am happy to answer any questions just Message me.
Martyn Hill and Karen Smith.
