About Hotel Kalypso

Situated in the very heart of Elounda, overlooking the main square and small harbour, the Hotel Kalypso Hotel is a boutique property offering simple accommodation with lovely sea views.

The rooms are simply furnished and have cooling tile floors. Each features air conditioning, minibar, in-room safe, hair dryer and telephone.

Hotel Kalypso is a small property, and there are not many public facilities. There is a public computer available for use.

Pizzeria Zorbas is a delightful pavement café offering wood fired pizza and pasta, influenced by the Greek Islands as well as great wines and beers as well.

All of the little town, with its cafes and bars, is well within walking distance, but further afield guests will find Spinalonga Island. It has great archaeological interest, and can be accessed by short ferry three miles from Hotel Kalypso.

Positive Reviews

Good value for money

While the rooms and hotel are fairly basic, several guests mention that they got what they considered an excellent room-rate. So they concluded that they had received very good value for money for such a central hotel.

Great location by the harbour

The location, right in the centre of Elounda, and overlooking the little harbour, was by far what guests most appreciated about the Kalypso. They found they could walk anywhere they wanted in the town, including to great restaurants, and also had a great outlook over the busy and interesting harbour.

Surprisingly quiet

Several guests expressed their amazement that a hotel right in the centre of town could be so quiet at night. They credited the double glazed windows with keeping out the street noise.

Negative Reviews

Lack of hot water on occasion

The lack of hot water for showering was mentioned quite a few times. It seems that the hotel uses a timer on its hot water tanks, resulting in large stretches where no hot water is available. It may be ecological, but guests were naturally unhappy to be having a cold shower.

Some issues with room servicing

While not all guests were unhappy, some reported that the rooms were not really cleaned and serviced with any degree of regularity. While they were regular hotel rooms, some said that the hotel serviced them as it would a more independent apartment.

Reception often unattended

Several guests reported being surprised to often find the reception desk unattended. This did create some small problems when they would have liked to ask a question or report an issue.
