Stayed in room 4 for 3 nights, the cafe area in front of the hotel is very good and as with all rooms in Loutro the view was superb. Service is good. However the bedrooms are of a poor standard, air conditioner hardly worked, the bathroom was poor and the worst bit was the hole in the wall from the...

The spot is beautiful but this you know. The cafe is very well set, excellent music all day long, people are smiling and ready to help. We had a wonderful moment there and concerning the rooms, these are clean, spacious and comfortable enough to spend your holidays. This is not a place to avoid like others in the same bay...

I have recently come back from a wonderful break in Loutro, Chania, staying at the Hotel Sifis. This is my first time writing a review but I was so impressed with this hotel that I have to talk about it! The Sifis family, Christina, Betty, Michalis and Christos were lovely hosts, courteous and cheerful. They were helped by some lovely...

I guess everywhere has great views in Loutro - Sifis certainly does, particularly from the second floor. As others have said, the second floor is quieter - the bar area seems to be a big hub of attention for the after hours crowd in Loutro and we heard no noise at all from the second floor. We had a room...

We stayed for 2 nights, (late july) based on recommendations from a friend. Christina the owner and her family were fantastic at making our stay in this beautiful village more special. Room Amenities were basic, but clean and excellent views. Great breakfasts on the waterfront! We will be back Christina, thank you! R & K

I enjoyed my stay at Sifis mostly due to the the friendly proprietor and the view from my balcony (room 2). Christina, the owner, checked me in upon arrival. I was given room 2 just above the cafe. The room was clean and very basic. The bathroom was clean. Nothing fancy. The shower is on the tiny side. The bed...

Stayed at Sifis for 2 nights whilst touring western Crete. Wish we had booked for longer. Christina, the owner, and her staff are so friendly they make you feel welcome from the minute you step off the ferry. Our room had a fantastic view of the bay. Small but adequate as are most rooms in Crete. Excellent air conditioning made...

Everything about this hotel exceeded my expectations. My room overlooked the bay, the lobby and premises were decorated with a great eclectic flair and the staff were very friendly. I stayed during Pentacost weekend, which is a 3 day weekend for Greece. I had no idea, and the town was rather busy. Being directly over the restaurants, I could hear...

Hotel Sifis is in a great location and it's very easy to find. Step off the ferry, walk to the very first establishment on the waterfront and you have arrived at your destination :-) The staff are friendly and the breakfast is good. The rooms are, a bit like Greek hotels of the 1980’s (our student days), very simple and...
