The location of this hotel is outstanding - it is built right on the nicest beach of the island of Sifnos. Furthermore there are many pleasant restaurants along the beach a well as a mini-market and a newspaper shop.
The hotel was built over 40 years ago, and it shows its age. While the decoration of the interior is VERY charming, my room and its amenities definitely show their age. This is also true for other rooms that i visited. The bed mattresses need changing, the fan makes a lot of noise (you cant really sleep with it on) and the bathroom is awful.
However the room, linen, bathroom and all public places are extremely clean. Furthermore the staff were pleasant (it seemed like a family run place), but i have the suspicion that they need to take a liking to you if you want to have truly good service.
To sum up, what makes this hotel is its location. If you want to be on the beach (and only spend time in your room to sleep) and not have to worry about getting into a car then this is an ideal place for you.
