“Perfect location for silent rest”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

I've been in Alexandros Vassilia hotel for 10 days in August 2013. The hotel is handled by a very welcoming family, we have a 10 month baby and we asked for a camp stove to warm infant food. Kyriakos was very kind, he provided us a complete electrical kitchen with stoves and a oven for all needs we could have.
The place is perfect as the beach there is very nice, close to the rooms and to the restaurant.
We made breakfast just in front of the sea, sometimes we took a bath just before. Wonderful!!
The beach is never crowded or noisy, not even in mid august, the sand is coarse so it's perfect for the babies, not annoying at all.
In one word: perfect.

Alexandros-Vasilia is a family run hotel just 2 steps from the beach and 5 minutes walk from the port.
Owners are really polite, friendly and helpful and rooms are clean and good value.
Especially Kyriakos, the manager (and all the family) seems to really love and care about his property and the island in general.
Don't forget to taste local, homemade dishes at their own restaurant.
I stayed only 4 days but i wish i was there more than a week with my car to get to see more places around the island.
Worth visit!

We spent 3 days in this great place run by Kiriakos and his family in a perfect location as mentioned in other feedbacks.
I will only underline his kindness and hospitality (he offered the first dinner) and make one small suggestion : just slightly increase the price and improve the breakfast, it will still be affordable !

Serifos is a charming island and not as touristy as other islands in the Cyclades. The little hotel Alexandros-Vassilia (named after the two owners, who are brother and sister) is a charming family hotel on the beach, where all the family works together during the summer. The team is super friendly and by the time we left after 10 days we all knew each other by name and were part of the family.

They will pick you up and take you to the ferry by car - it's a 10 mns walk via the beach but not easy with your luggage.

The food is good and copious, and if you give them advance notice they can prepare what you want. We ended up having a party of about 12 there one night and they looked after us really well. Taking all your meals outside with the view in the hotel garden is very pleasant.

The rooms are OK - simple but comfortable, and in any case we did not spend any time in our room being there in the middle of summer. It can be a bit noisy as people get moving in the morning. But just ask anything you need and the team will bend over backwards to help you.

A couple of things could have been easier - booking from NZ and having to pay a deposit by international fund transfer was a hassle. But this is where we wanted to stay so I made it happen. Hopefully the team will have made some progress by now to make it easier for foreigners to book from abroad with a credit card.

So would I recommend it? Absolutely - I had a wonderful time and will be back. If I did not live as far away I would go back there every year - I left a part of my heart in Serifos and at Alessandros Vassilia's.

Introduction:
Serifos is one of the Cyclade islands which tourism infrastructure is less developed (90%of the pensions and hotels appear a little bit shabby) but on the other hand a very nice rough mountain landscape with an amazing setting of the town "Chora" next to the little harbour village Livadi.

The pension "Alexandros-Vassilia Guesthouse":
We were picked up by Alexandros at the harbour. Unfortunately Alexandros and his staff has very little english skills.

We got a room at the back of the house even though the pension was not busy. A big disadvantage: the watchdog of the house was barking once an hour between 1 and 6 am, at 6 am a cock crowed permantly till 8 pm then craftsmen started their work in the neighbourhood. That happened every night - fortunately we stayed only 2 nights!

Next morning: we waited 30 min for our breakfast (omelett). Unfortunately those ones caused a little struggle for our stomachs later. We couldn't imagine to have a lunch or a dinner there. The next breakfast we took at a cafe at Livadi bay.

The setting at Livadakia beach is also not so nice as it was mentioned in the other feedbacks. There are much better beaches on the island (e.g. a 10 min walk further west is a nice small bay). The pension is next to a camping and we could not image how it would be at Livadakia beach in high season.

Value for money: 85€/night was definitely to high (we paid 90€/night at Villa Konstantin in Mykonos and that was excellent). We would not pay more than 35€/night for that room!

Due to that disappointment we took an hour and searched for an alternative pension/hotel. The outcome is: "Studios Amfitri" or next to it "Studios Niovi". Both are just 3 years old and are perfectly situated (silent) at the Livadi bay with an amazing view to the harbour and the old town Chora in the back and the longest sun period at the south coast of Serifos.

Conclusion:
Serifos is worth to come back but never again "Alexandros-Vassilia Guesthouse"!

The hotel consists of 10 rooms behind a taverner all set in a beautiful flower garden, with a gate at the bottom leading straight on to the beach. We stayed there for 3 nights in September when only 2/3 of the rooms were let and the owners were beginning to relax after a very busy July and August. The rooms are adequate size and ours had the biggest verandah I have ever seen (twice the size of the room). The location is a 10 minute leisurely walk west of the centre of the Livadi on the horseshoe of Livadaki Beach, with a view behind to the white houses of Serifos Hora stretching up the hill a couple of miles away. (By car, due to the one way system in Livadi, to get there by car takes longer than walking).

Alexandros Vassilia is the ideal place to relax where you do not need to go anywhere if you do not feel like it - just relax on the beach and eat excellent food in the taverner.
