This little almost-beachside hotel is great for those who want a quiet friendly relaxing break from the usual Greek Island tourist destinations. Transfers to and from the ferry were done personally by the staff, and for getting around the island on the cheap there is a local bus stop directly outside the hotel with car and scooter rental just down the road. The room rates can be very cheap, but the rooms are clean and comfortable - ours came with a friendly cat that welcomed us to 'her' balcony - and the bar and dining facilities are very tastefully set out. The bar and lounge area is a beautiful place to while away the day, catch up on emails (free wifi) or relax before dinner. Many expensive 5 star hotels would surely envy what Hotel Benois has achieved here in such a simple quiet unassuming way.

The pool is well maintained though the surrounds are a little bleak, however once comfortably installed on any of the excellent sun beds surrounding it, the concrete can be forgotten. Some minor items in the room and bathroom were a little wobbly or worn, and knocked full marks off my assessment, but it was mentioned that every year they upgrade some major aspect of the hotel during the off-season. For the price though I'd almost excuse these minor blemishes and, besides, we only saw one room.

The main beach is less than 100m away a little hidden by long grass across the road. There is a mini-mart in the street adjacent the hotel, and several good restaurants, some spilling across the road under trees on the sand, and a few tavernas and cafes further along the street and at the far end of the beach. The kid-friendly non-surf beach has the usual lines of shaded sun beds for rent (in season?) and pedal boats with a amazing selection of water-borne activities installed on top - slides, picnic tables, diving boards and sun beds. Pity the pedal-person on a windy day!

Possibly the best thing about Hotel Benois though is the friendly and genuinely caring staff. Any little request was dealt with immediately without any fuss. It was a just very nice place to stay and to get away from it all. We really enjoyed ourselves.

We began our trip to the Greek Islands on the Island of Syros and itt was the best part of the trip. The Hotel Benois is located in the tiny village of Galissas. The village itself has only a few hotels and eight or ten cafes. The hotel is set just across the street from the sea. It is truly a lovely hotel with a beautiful veranda that is relaxing and just a pleasant place to pass time. The hotel pool was beautiful as well. The staff overall was fine, but Lisa, one of the front desk clerks, really was welcoming and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Overall, the hotel was a great bargain, and had I known in advance how lovely Galissas was, I would have chosen to stay much longer.

We had been reading reviews about the Benois hotel, but even then we were nicely surprised when we actually arrived.
The photos on their website are not as good as the reality. Everything seems new, is clean, well designed, well cared.
The pool is very good and somewhat protected from the wind, the beach is near and a minimarket is just next-door. The village is quiet, but just enough populated (in June) to have some restaurants available to select from. And, if you want, the Ermoupolis town is only 20 minutes drive.
And then, not to forget, the breakfast is amongst the best we ever got, surely in Greece.
And that all at a very attractive price.
What could be better: some minimum kitchen stuff (a few glasses, knife, fork, ...), but yes, they do not tell they rent studios.
