To give you a sense of how thoughtful and caring these people are let me start by saying that while in Athens I received a call from the front desk because they were concerned that we had not arrived. As it turns out there was a mix up in our arrival date and everything was taken care of with no problems at all. Upon arrival the following day we were greeted by the staff and breakfast was prepared for us in abundance. Breakfast was prepared to order everyday and it was wonderful.
The island of Skyros is lesser-traveled than others and not a modern built up destination like Mykonos or Santorini. It's more laid-back and calming. Also, we were there in the off season so it was even slower than usual.
We got quite a workout walking up and down all of the foothills in the area to see the local sites. Hotel Nefeli is steps from the center of town and a pretty good hike to the beach. They have a pool on site which I think is rare on the island. From our limited experience I think that this is The Best hotel on the island and you can't go wrong staying here.
The most expensive hotel on the island but definitely not worth the money you have to pay for it. Unacceptably poor breakfast buffet both in terms of quality and variety. Rickety bathroom fixtures and fittings and the cheapest amenities. Nice pool area.
What a lovely family hotel. Popuar with Greeks and foreign tourists alike. The staff are so friendly as are the owners, A fantastic base to explore the island and enjoy good food in beautiful and safe surroundings. We dont want to single out anyone from the hotel as special since both owners and staff allike were all fantatic. Indeed sometimes the staff even acted as dilgently as the owners, The pool area with serviced lunch and dinner was a dream. Keep up the good work and well done you all!
we stayed at the hotel Nefeli. It's a very good, quiet ,clean hotel with good breakfast. Everything was nice, good staff, freiently people and helpfull with good advices. there is parking for many cars nice clean swimming pool and close to the city
This summer I visited with my family the island of Skyros for one week. We stayed at Hotel Nefeli in the “Skyrian Houses”.
I will begin with the location which is excellent because it is at the beginning of the town of Skyros and you don’t need your car for all your visits there since the parking is quite difficult.
Afterwards, the rooms were spacious, traditionally decorated and had a lot of necessary accessories (hair dryer, mini fridge, mosquito tablets etc) but need a liitle bit better cleaning. The rooms balcony had a view of the castle and the monastery.
Breakfast was traditional, tasteful, with a variety of goods but almost the same every day.
The pool and the pool area were impressing and very lovely to stay in the afternoon.
We ate in the restaurant of the hotel the first day. Everything we chose was delicious and big in quantity but a little bit expensive.
I would definitely choose this hotel in my next visit to Skyros where we had a great time.
