Room 10 was great I had it last few weeks in October. Bring hiking shoes because some great things to explore. The staff is awesome and it's so inexpensive. The decking is unique to loutro and best place to relax. Christina is a great host.

Christina is the most wonderful hostess, cannot do enough to make your stay perfect. However our room was very small and had few of the extras one would expect. The fridge was small and antiquated, we had to ask for a kettle (delivered with charm), and the shower water ranged from cold to tepid. We first visited Loutro over 20...

Loutro is a small port town, pretty much just comprised of hotels and tavernas. Sifis is right off of the ferry landing with great views. Top floor terraced room with amazing sunset. As all the buildings are perched on the side of the mountain, be prepared for stairs. We had help with our luggage. Christina is friendly and cheerful!

The room was very small but boy was the view amazing! I could have stayed forever on that balcony. You can hear the waves and that beats everything. I do not understand the complaints about the music - yes, there was music from the restaurant below, but it was not very noisy and only until max. midnight. We could bearly...

Loutro is an extraordinary location for tourists looking for a peaceful holiday in a relaxed context. I recommend Sifis, despite the music until late at night (1.30) for its terrace, the cosy bar and the amazing view on the calm bay. Free wi-fi connection. The owner is a kind lady and the rooms are incredibly clean and cool.

We stayed at the Hotel Sifis for two nights the end of May. The owner, Christina, was particularly gracious and welcoming. We had a corner room on the second floor where we had an amazing view of the area, the town, port, and activity. Christina, you clarified a misconception I had. I had attributed Gioconda's Smile to the wonderful composer...

I would like to leave the review regarding the perfect place for breakfast, as well as for a drink at night! The owners,Mrs.Christina and her son and really attentive.

Sifis hotel is a great place to stay and is the first hotel you come to in loutro from the boat.

7 of us stayed here for night during our 2 weeks in Crete and it was lovely! The rooms are basic, but have AC and comfy beds but when you have the sea view you do, who cares about a basic room. The owner Christina is a lovely women, who is very welcoming and makes all guests feel like they...

This is a very friendly, clean,well run hotel. Expect it as it is priced and you will not be dissapointed. Contacted Christine the owner before arrival re water taxi transfer and hiring a boat. She had all the answers and was very helpful. We would definitely return.
