“Execellent place to stay in Platis Gialos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

We are a greek couple with a 14-month year old girl and stayed at the hotel in early July 2011.
The rooms are very clean and nicely decorated, breakfast is superb and the view to Platys Gialos beach amazing. The people who run the hotel, Thanassis and his wife are very helpfull and descrete and always eager to offer you the best of services. The beach is only a few minutes walk from the hotel but alternatively you can cool off in the hotel's piscine. There is also a playroom next to the pool which those having children will find very helpfull as you can easily leave the children in the playroom and have a quick swim in the pool.
In general, the hotel was excellent and we will surely revisit it as it really made us relax and enjoy our holidays.

Beautiful hotel, excellent location in Platys Gialos, romantic views, not too busy. The breakfast is great, comprising of different pastries each day from the owners fathers bakery, eggs, fresh fruit and basically anything you want. Our room has a separate living area and 2 balconies. The pool is small but nice to sit around for a relaxing day. No complaints really, would love to come back, but only for a relaxing quiet break, not for those who need to be out doing all the time. Beach 100m down some steps is quiet and clean also.

We were booked into a hotel in Kamares which was poor, the travel agent helped by directing us to Niriedes Hotel. This hotel sits just above the beach with incredible views 180 degrees. The hosts are gracious and accommodating. This is the best place of our two week vacation and we stayed at lovely locations including the Dana Villas on Santorini. We were travelling with our 17 year old daughter and 14 year old son. We stayed in the family suite and it nicely met all of our needs. You will not be disappointed.

We enjoy a more quiet, tranquil location so Niriedes Hotel was perfect for us. Being about 10 km or 15 minutes from the main town of Apollonia some might find it a bit out-of-the-way but for those who are looking for peace and quiet, it is ideal.

Our superior room was clean, bright and spacious, impeccably decorated. There was a separate bedroom from a second room that had both a kitchenette (dishes, glassware, cutlery, fridge, sink, stovetop etc.) and a sitting area leading to a narrow terrace with a spectacular view of the harbour and hills beyond.

Thanasis, the owner/manager was always available and very helpful, with suggestions of tavernas, beaches, both convenient and isolated, churches, viewing points etc. One particularly great suggestion was the nearby (3 km) taverna Lebesis. Located at the waters edge, looking out to two beautiful churches situated on rock promontories my wife described Lebesis as the most romantic restaurant she has ever been to ... an observation with which I agree. Imagine spending an afternoon on a nice sandy beach, swimming in the warm Aegean, and then walking only a few steps to a wonderful open air taverna for a meal of superb Greek food - it doesn't get any better.

We spent four days on Sifnos, about the right amount of time. We saw the entire island, from the pretty harbour/village of Heronissos in the north, to Kameras, the port on the west coast, to the medieval cliff-top village of Kastro hugging the sea in the east, to numerous beaches and look-offs in between. We also spent time on Folegandros and Milos, and while each are certainly worth a visit, of the three islands our favourite was Sifnos.

Breakfast at Niriedes is great. A wide selection of pastries, coffee, juice, yoghurt (with fresh fruit or nuts and honey), Sifnos cheese, feta and tomato etc. can all be enjoyed overlooking the bay, beach and village of Platis Yialos.

Niriedes Hotel is well designed as it 'climbs' the hillside with spectacular views. A small, but perfectly located pool provides opportunity to relax. The hotel, accentuated by colourful flowers, is tastefully decorated, with fresh bright colours and interesting artwork, courtesy of Thanasis' wife. Niriedes was a wonderful place to spend our time on Sifnos, a small (nine rooms I believe) boutique hotel we highly recommend.

We followed the tripadvisor recommendation and we were completely satisfied!

Everything had been prepared in the right way by Thanos the owner (rental car etc.). He gave us very nice recommendations for restaurants and beaches!

The setting of the hotel is really nice especially in the morning: we enjoyed the breakfast with fresh patisserie from Thanos father in law!!!

We will come back!

We stayed here for 7 days in June during a very hot spell (30C+) making the air conditioning very welcome indeed. Prior conversations with the owner Thanos, ensured that a hire car was ready at the port in Kamares on our arrival, late in the day. Maps provided got us to Platy Gialos, but phone calls helped us get to this hotel perched on the hillside facing west over the beautiful bay. We stayed in an apartment consisting of a double bedroom with small balcony , and a large loungeroom containing a dining area and kitchen corner. Windows faced in three directions getting the coolest breeze possible. A large uncovered balcony off the loungeroom had a spectacular view but was incredibly hot in the middle of the day. Breakfast was exceptional with beautiful greek yoghurt, fresh fruit, more pastries than you can eat, plus the possibilty of a cooked breakfast all on the balcony. The owners are always on site and available, even extending to helping us change a flat tyre!! The units have been beautifully decorated by the owners wife, with exceptional marble bathrooms. The bed was comfortable. The hotel is built cascading down a hillside with the entrance at the bottom, necessitating quite a few steps to reach the top apartment. Would definitely return. Sifnos is a charming, traditional Cycladic island with many interesting villages and good Greek food. We don't understand why this hotel is listed under B&Bs and not under hotels!!

This new hotel/suites has been created with great taste and nothing has been left to chance. Owned by a young couple that are ready to assist with all yr needs. Great restaurant, delicious breakfast served - enjoy every moment overlooking the Aegean Sea. They have a great website too. Definately going back there.
