Hotel Alkyon
Ranked #43 of 84 Hotels in Skiathos
Reviewed 24 September 2017

Have just got back from a 2 week stay athe Alkyon hotel and must say we where presently surprised with our room after reading some of the reviews. Rooms are quite basic but extremely clean, and was much better than we anticipated. As for location we couldn't have been any better situated. Just across the road from main town skiathos with its numerous restaurants and bars of which we had excellent food and service in all which we tried. Also to the left of our hotel was a quieter strip of bars and restaurants again with excellent food and service. Breakfast at the hotel was extremely good with plenty of choice. Staff where very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely stay in the Alkyon again, and as for Skiathos well if you want a lovely beach sun sea sand and excellent food I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Nearly forgot to say about the amazing harbour views from the breakfast terrace. It certainly has everything that I want from a holiday

This hotel is 5 minutes taxi ride from the airport or a 20 minute walk. I suggest the taxi.
The hotel is clean and tidy but it needs some attention.
Facilities are basic but adequate.
View from the breakfast room is stunning however the food itself is not great. If you like fried eggs you will be ok. Croissants and selection of jams are ok. Juices are weak and coffee is horrible.
The bar area is served by a delightful girl called Angelica during the afternoon. In the evening the barman is efficient but needs to learn to smile. Perhaps after 9 years there he needs to move on.
Pool area is clean.
The rooms are tidy and kept clean but if you get the rooms starting with 1 they are on the lower ground floor. My advice is ask for rooms 201 - 207 or 301 - 307 as you will get the sea views.
Would I stay there again? Yes if I got it at a cheap price but there better hotels for the same price in Skiathos.
Saying that it is in a fabulous spot.

there are a lot of comments saying this hotel is not a three star hotel. This is Greece so you won't find the usual comforts of say Spain, but in saying that we found the hotel to have everything you need. Fridge air con ( free ) tv okay no English channels but does it really matter. Towels changed daily comfy bed two pillows each in a polythene bag fresh and clean.. the breakfast has a toaster and a choice of cereals fresh or tinned fruit. Bacon eggs cheese ham etc. All to be consumed on a veranda with a view to die for. We stayed in room 410 at the side with a view of the sea and mountains. It was spacious and spotlessly clean with a very good bathroom with bath and shower. Minutes from the centre and a two minute stroll to the bus stop were you can go off to numerous beaches. There is a pool but only small and gets limited sun . Bus stop 10 takes you to a lovely beach with three tavernas and a charge of four euros for Sun bed and parasol. Go left out of the hotel for some lovely restaurants. A good tip is to forget the transfer bus home and take a taxi booked from the hotel. This way you can avoid all the rush of finding your case at the airport as it will be taken separate from yourself to the airport, check your bags in but don't go through to passport control as there is nothing to do. Go outside there's a little taverna next to the airport. A great place to stay cant wait to go back.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms 403 to 411

Stopped for 7 days. Not much of a view from balcony but i prefer the pool area. Hotel is ideally situated. Bus stop just round corner that will take you to the beaches for a couple of Euros. Virtually on the docks and great view while having breakfast on the roof watching the planes come in. Free air con which was a bonus. Great place and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want a sea view you may have to pay a little extra
