Reviewed August 21, 2013

The rooms are beautifully decorated, and the hotel is located near the bus station-which is very convenient if you do not have a car/bike. Unfortunately, the first of the five nights we spent there, we were forced to stay to another hotel (of a much lower quality) because the previous couple wanted to stay an extra night and the owner did not want to move them from the room.

Best value on our 5 week Greek Isles trip! Rooms are spotless, service super, attention to detail outstanding, Great view from terraces. Private, everything a couple could want! 'Maria, the owner met us when the taxi dropped us off at about 9:30 P.M., she took our two bags down a concrete driveway to a beautiful junior suite, complete with a small kitten greeting us! (Note: If you do not like cats, Sifnos is probably not your island. Lots & lots of cats, all friendly, most wanting attention. Did not see a mouse in 4 days!) There is a short walk (5 minutes to excellent restaurant) Ten minutes to the small downtown and the beach.

You can kick back and relax here in peace and quiet with a magical view of abandoned monasteries on a high hill across the valley. The owner, Maria, prepares a superior breakfast if you wish to pay for it. She also provided a homemade chickpea soup on Sunday out in the far garden. Delicious! Otherwise coffee and tea are available in the room. Maria has an asssitant from "Bulgaria, Kalinka who will also be most helpful without being intrusive.

Room Tip: Th room shown in the picture was our room. Can't say enough about it!

My husband and I stayed at the Sifnaika Konakia Traditional Settlements during May 2013 as part of our tour of the Greek Islands. From the start we were made to feel welcome. Maria fetched us from the port at 21:00 and made sure that we had everything we needed before retiring for the night.
We stayed in a Junior Studio, which was quite spacious and had breakfast products, but we preferred to have breakfast with the other guests.
Breakfast is served on the terrace after 8:30, when Maria can fetch fresh bread for the day. She also served a very nice freshly baked local dish (can’t remember the name, but it was delicious!) The day of our departure she served our breakfast early in order to be able to drop us at the port at 9:00. It is this personal attention that will make me come back to Sifnos to stay with Maria again!
The only small drawback was the shower. It was a bit difficult to use a hand shower and soap at the same time without wetting the whole bathroom, but that would not keep me from staying here again.

I stayed at sifnaika konakia in early September and I had super time! Maria is a lovely person as well as a wonderful professional who made sure every day that I had everything I needed to enjoy myself. The breakfast was wonderful and was served with a smile by both Maria and her lovely Bulgarian assistant, Kalinka. My room n7 was very good value for money with a fantastic view over the fields and the bay. The hotel is very well positioned, next to the port town and its lovely, clean beach and the bus station towards the capital, Apollonia and the rest of the island. I was impressed with Sifnos, it has natural beauty and a lot of character. I will definitely come back to this lovely small hotel. All the best to Maria, Markos.

Our trip to Sifnos was wonderful. The island is amazing but the hotel made the difference.With it's stunning view over the fields, It was classy and well-decorated. It also had the added value of being child-friendly with numerous games and small playground. Maria is the hostess with the mostest...helpful, accomodating, generous, discrete...
Thank you Maria! We already want to come back.

I stayed in Sifnaika Konakia with my wife and my 2 yrs old son.
We stayed there for 10 days on August 2012. The place is very beautiful, relaxed and offers great comfortable rooms. Maria who owns and runs the place is extremely friendly and helpful. She helped us with whatever we needed and she did all she could to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
