“Nice and homie!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

A simple hotel with a good location, out of the crowd of Apollonia but 10 minutes walking from it. Rooms were decent, nothing fancy but new and clean. A good wifi. An amazing breakfast. Excellent service, the owner is always there for everything you need; very kind and friendly.

Stayed August 2014, traveled with friends

The hotel is a beautiful fresh clean group of rooms typical of the cycladic islands. At the front of the hotel is a large outdoor cafe/ terrace where breakfast is served. The rooms were cleaned every day and the beds and pillows were very comfortable, complete with flat screen tvs in each bedroom.

The view from our room was over artemonas square complete with its tavernas and whitewashed church. Charming to say the least. All buses to the remainder of the island leave from this square which was very handy.

Antonis and his team were excellent hosts and provided great advice making us feel part of the family. Breakfast was superb providing anything we wanted even for my fussy eaters Esmeralda the cleaner even befriended my daughter a platted her hair. We have fond memories of our stay here.

Room Tip: For families ask for the large 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the town square with 3 outdoor spaces...

We spent 10 great days in Sifnos which would be impossible to imagine without Adonis and his team. When asked about breakfast hours he replied "From 8 till whenever you want" we realised WE ARE IN PARADISE. The rooms are clean (thank you Esmeralda) and well air conditioned. The breakfast is fresh and full (the most delicious honey from Crete I have ever tasted in my life). The background music is always there to complete these idyllic moments.
Two great mojitos as a compliment from Adonis were unexpected but mostly welcomed! Thank you again!
We shall surely come back!

Room Tip: For more quiet rooms ask for those facing the garden behind the hotel.

Charming hotel in Artemonas, comfortable & clean in the beautiful village of Artemonas. Antonis, the owner of the hotel, is an excellent host and extremely polite. He even lent us his car as we couldn't finf a rental. We will certainly stay again!!!

Excellent location, friendly service, family run hotel in Sifnos. It is our 3rd time here and we fully enjoyed our stay. It is excellent for couples but also for families and groups of friends.
Just 10 minutes walk from Apollonia, the shops and the night life of Sifnos.

Thanks Αντώνη and family, Γιάννη and all for a week of memorable vacation.

Communal areas (breakfast area) were extremely nice, the breakfast was amazing and staff was very kind, we stayed at a superior double, the room was quite basic though clean, the bathroom could be improved a little but overall we had a good experience!

This was going to be a 4 day break but ended up to be the best week's holiday thanks to the choice of hotel on the beautiful island of Sifnos. The location is perfect . On the main,small, square of Artemonas, next to the bus terminal ( do not worry there is no noise or trouble from it), 10 minutes walk to the centre of Apolonia ( it took us 25 due to the 1000's of photo opportunities on the way), beautiful clean rooms, fantastic choice of breakfast till 13.00 !!!!!. But above all that Smaragdi has Antoni , or to be more precise' Antonis IS Smaragdi and the best guide you could wish to have. You want the best restaurant in the island? He will tell you and book it for you. The best beach? He will direct you and tell you where to etc etc etc. I am amazed that it not the No. 1 in Artemonas if not in the whole island. The windmill hotel has magnificent view but nothing within walking distance of it. Smaragdi has 3 lovely little restaurants on its doorstep and we still had the most quite & peaceful sleep. If you go to Sifnos (and you REALLY must) then you HAVE to stay at Smaragdi.

Room Tip: No bad rooms!!!!
