“Good place to relax”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

The Benois was a pleasant modern and comfortable hotel in a quiet village .The pool was well kept and there were plenty of loungers.I enjoyed meeting the friendly cats who lived around the hotel too.Breakfast was excellent and could not be faulted.Galissas is quiet and a bit remote from the main town ,Ermopouli,yet it has adequate tavernas all providing good Greek food at value for money prices.The hotel is near the uncrowded beach and nice walks are available in the vicinity.Not many people were staying in May 2012 when we were there so it lacked a bit of atmosphere despite the friendliness of the owner and staff

I was here in June 2012 with two friends and while there isn't much nearby, the hotel is brilliant! Clean and modern with friendly staff I thoroughly recommend! We went to restaurant next door and had a lovely meal. We were only in Syros for 3 nights and it eased us into our Cyclades Greek tour perfectly!

Room Tip: Pick a room on the ground floor- just a hop and a skip over to the lovely pool!

Hotel Benois was a great first stop for us on our Greek Island adventure. The village of Galissas, where it is located, is tiny and just ideal for someone wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. When we arrived early from our ferry trip (picked up by the hotel minibus) our room was understandably not yet ready but the welcome from staff was second to none. They offered us breakfast at no additional cost and also said we could use the pool until our room was cleaned.

The room itself was spotless and comfortable with a small balcony. The hotel pool is great for relaxing, and the beach is so close you can practically see the hotel while you're swimming in the sea! Right next door to Hotel Benois is a minimarket and two really good tavernas. All staff were very friendly and helpful, and the bar was a lovely place to have a pre-dinner drink each evening.

A lovely experience, highly recommended.

What a modern upmarket little Gem, stuck away in Gallasis. This Hotel definitely deserves to be a four star as it is neat, clean , comfortable with a delicious spread for breakfast. The sparkling pool is a nice break away from the nearby beach. Des piña and her mom run a very good Hotel with a little mini market right next door. If you are deciding where to stay, this is the only choice. My husband and I thank you for your hospitality. Regards The Munro's

We very much enjoyed our 10 day stay here in August of last year. We have stayed in much more luxurious accommodation in Greece and elsewhere but the combination of comfort, location, service and friendliness of the staff has rarely been bettered. Galissas is a great beach we would have used a bit more were it not for the combined lure of the peaceful hotel swimming pool and Ermoupolis (easily reached by the excellent bus service). Two very adequate tavernas/ restaurants and a few other bars/eateries add to the attraction of this compact resort. A walk to the old village or in the nearby hills takes you nicely out of any hustle and bustle (we stumbled across a secluded nudist cove). Worth mentioning that the wind was our friend- keeping us cool enough in August at the expense of some noisy nights.

I think when later in the season the bar at the front of the hotel would be lovely, it wasnt open when I was there. Really enjoyed my stat
