The location was superb in an unspoilt Cretan village. It was also close to the historic site of Falasarna, which was well worth a visit. Room was spacious with a pleasant balcony offering distant sea views.
Bathroom needs refurbishing. Water was cold, as weather was not sunny and warm enough for solar heating, but hotel should make alternative heating arrangments.
Breakfast: tasty, yummy & unique; not to be missed. Room: quite traditional. Restaurant: well maintained & aesthetically furnished. Good value for money. Location: great for visting Balos lagoon, Falasarna & the rest of W.Crete.
Bathroom: needs improvement; water leaked during our stay. TV: old & v.few channels. Food@lunch/dinner: just ok; not great. Bar on location wasn't open.
Good position, easy way to reach Balos e Falasarna. Great confort and food. Quality/price ok.
Courtesy of the staff and strategic location near the main beashes of the west coast of crete (Balos, Falasarna...). Very relaxing environment and typical greek style.
The location is great, with a big terrace with sea view. The Hotel is also a restaurant conduced by Eftihia, with excellent food (don't miss "Goat with Honey" and "Meat Balls"). The breakfast was one of the best we've ever done (ask for "Kaliviani Breakfast", with delicious yogurt with honey, fruits, and other things). All the staff was incredible kind, specially Giannis who helped us with the strike gasoline problem.
During our 4 nights, room was cleaned just one day and towels were not changed. If you are a couple, mind that they have only twin beds, that cannot be united without a gap in the middle. In any case, these problems were very little things compared to all the other positive things.
With a stay at Kaliviani Traditional Hotel in Kissamos, you'll be 2.1 mi (3.4 km) from Port of Kissamos and 5.2 mi (8.3 km) from Balos Beach. Featured amenities include express check-in, express check-out, and dry cleaning/laundry services. Free self parking is available onsite.
