Hotel Benaki is a clean, quiet and very comfortable hotel (with air on) within a stones throw of the sandy beach.Rooms are well furnished and wifi is free. Maria and her husband gave the hotel a very personal touch, always around and keen to help. The breakfast was a buffet style and was plentiful. Fresh fruit, cereals, hams etc... etc.......

We stayed at two places in Sifnos, Aggaliki and Benakis. Benakis was not as good as Aggaliki, but it was fine. We really enjoyed the breakfast (Aggaliki does not have breakfast). But the bed was just OK and the room was not as quiet, we didn't sleep as well at Benakis as we did at Aggaliki. The Benakis reception and...

The rooms and bathrooms are on the smaller side but are very clean and bright. There was always a breeze coming through so the air conditioner was not necessary at night.

The hotel is about halfway down the coastal strip on Platys Yialos. The August price of €55 per day for a double dropped to €35 for September when we went. Clean bright rooms, didn't need the air conditioner once during our stay. Parking at the back with access via the room key. Breakfast was a simple spread with not a...

Although I did not stay at the benakis..just thought it was worth giving a review due to the very friendly "maria" who welcomed us in every night for a night cap. With a fix beer costing only 2 Euros at the hotel compared to 3 - 5 Euros in some bars. "Maria" offered a small house drink each night once...

A very good hotel located two steps from the beach. Spotlessly clean and a really good value for money. The rooms are equipped with air-con and fridge. However the owners really make the difference as they are very helpful and seem to understand the concept of hospitality. I would definitely go back.
