“Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

A great hotel - looked to be the newest in the small village of Sissi, and trying very hard to be the best. After speaking to other holiday makers staying at other hotels, it seems they've acheived this.

Staff all friendly and helpful.
A huge selection at the breakfast buffet.
Rooms lovely, spacious and always spotless.
Bathrooms worth a mention - loved the shower and the jacuzzi bath.
Brilliant Spa - Wife loved her treatments.

Sissi was lnice and quiet when we visited in October - I would think that any earlier in the season will be a different kettle of fish entirely though...

Wonderful setting, contemporary hotel, gorgeous room, great food and lovely staff. Would return and definitely recommend. Sissi was pretty but very quiet in late Oct. Hired a car and visited Heraklion which was worth look, old mixed with new. Eloundes and Plaka also nice.

My partner and I wanted to go away for a week and just totally chill out. I must say we really did choose the perfect place for this. As soon as we arrived it just got better and better. The staff were fantastic, very professional but extrememly friendly and helpful at the same time. The hotel was exceptionally clean throughout and our room was beautiful. We were half board and did not plan to eat at the hotel every evening but the menu was superb and changeable so there was no reason to try anywhere else, we were really impressed. The nearby town Sissi is a lovely place, not too busy but enough going on with some lovely cages and tavernas. I would highly recommend this hotel and we are already excited about coming back! A week really isn't long enough. Thank you to everyone at Castello!

We were very impressed by our week's stay at the Castello Boutique. Spacious room with good-sized balcony, large shower, friendly and attentive service. All parts of the hotel were kept very clean and the quality and range of food offered were very good for the size/price of the hotel. (The negative comments of a few reviewers seem to reflect a ludicrous over expectations of what this category of hotel should provide).
Sissi is a picturesque small and quiet town with a good choice of bars and tavernas.
We would fully endorse the longer reviews below by Slippery1952 (2nd Oct) and Ezza-and-heno (1st Oct).

Had a recent week long stay at the Castello Boutique and found the hotel to be an excellent choice. Top staff, very friendly, greeted with fresh orange juice as soon as we had arrived at reception late in the evening, got to our room and found a bottle of red wine, bottle of water and 2 plates at meat, cheese and salad + bowl of fresh fruit awaiting us. Rooms were excellent size, kept very clean, hotel had decent bar prices + breakfast had a good choice, a few mins walk from the harbour and plenty of taverna's. Nice pool and sunbathing area, always ample sunbeds available even though hotel seemed to be pretty full. Would certainly consider staying here again on any return trip to Sissi.

I have been trying to think of a negative and for the life of me I can't, this was without a doubt one of the nicest, best kept and friendly hotels I have ever stayed at in this price bracket, the staff were unremitting in their attention to detail and service, the rooms were spacious and very comfortable and the food was pretty damn good too.
I would reccomend this hotel to anyone looking within this price bracket and deny anyone could find better, the location is good and although the beach isn't golden sand !! please this whole area was a volcano what do you expect although there are some very good sandy beaches near by, I would definately stay here again and can only congratulate the management on the exemplary way they run their hotel. WELL DONE. Oh if you do go there try Neromilos restaurant on the way out of town great family owned restaurant with fantastic food at a far to cheap price.

Room Tip: I beleive all the rooms are of equal standard so really can't make any suggestions unless you bo...
