Whether you’re going on vacation with friends, solo or as a couple, Sifnos is a welcoming island that will leave you with many happy memories. Here’s a selection of the best places to fin where to sleep on Sifnos.

Quiet places to sleep on Sifnos

A weekend away from it all. Are you tempted? The island of Sifnos is a great place to relax, and you’ll find plenty of hotels to stay just outside the villages, in the heart of nature.

Located in Exambela, not far from the capital Apollonia, the Hotel Andromeda is a magnificent hotel ideal for relaxation. A lovely swimming pool, a garden surrounded by olive trees, a bar where you can sip delicious cocktails… everything you need for a pleasant stay. What’s more, the hotel is run by two Frenchmen, Laure and Loïc, who will be delighted to share their tips and favorite addresses with you.

To the southwest of Sifnos lies the village of Vathi and the magnificent Archipelago. Archipelago features magnificent apartments, studios and rooms with breathtaking views of the creek.

Between Kastro and Faros, we stayed at Cape Napos with several families, ideal because the establishment has several accommodations side by side. Simply decorated rooms typical of the Cyclades, superb sea views, a very pleasant pool, very friendly hosts… What else? Oh yes, for early risers, a great sunrise! In short, a home to recommend without hesitation.

Finally, in Kastro, we also liked Hotel Agnanti simple but charming, with a lovely view, friendly staff and good value for money. Simply superb!

Accommodation in livelier cities

There are numerous hotels in both Kamares and Apollonia. Apollonia is the capital of Sifnos, and Kamares or Kamarai is the island’s main port. Both towns are a little livelier than the rest of the island. You’ll find excellent restaurants, bars, diving centers, independent boutiques…
