“Overpriced and poor quality”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

For 50 euros this would have been the worst hotel we have ever been to and we travel to Greece every year. Of course the owners are nice....they are trying to make up for the fact that their hotel is a rip-off.

Negatives:
Over-priced. This is back-packer quality and should be priced accordingly.
Very small bedroom. Even smaller bathroom - smallest I've ever seen
Not clean...even the fridge was dirty. Bottom shelf hadnt been cleaned for ages
We stayed 3 nights and no clean towels, no bed made etc. Only the rubbish was taken daily
Asked for 2 plates and given plastic plates (never happened before)
Wifi outside reception only

Looks like these owners aren't interested in making their place look welcoming at all. Although we had port views we had to look through 1 metre of dead weeds. Why not cut the weeds and throw some gravel there and maybe even a potted plant. I mean I'm not asking for expensive concrete or river stones. Just gravel. At least that would say "welcome".

Positives:
Walking distance to restaurants

Room Tip: Dont bother. Go somewhere else

The only good thing about this place was the location (just by the port) and the very kind, sweet and helpfull owners.

The room was clean and spacious but very old fashioned with a small tv (the ancient kind) that wasn't even working. The bathroom was small with a very dirty shower curtain. Instead of double room we had two single beds joined together with a gap in between and probably the worst and hardest mattress I've ever slept at. The pillows were very old and uncomfortable, torn inside in pieces. I think for 50 euros per night in July they could buy a better set of pillows, proper comfortable matresses and a new bathroom curtain.

The view from our balcony was nice, but there was construction work at the port (building a marina) so we couldn't even enjoy that!

We’ve been visiting the island for several years now and each time were happy to be Stella’s and Theodoros’ guests. The Aeolos studios are perfectly situated. In literally a few steps you can reach the port and the nice promenade of the island’s capital Livadi with all the restaurants and shops. At the same time the studios are completely secluded, so you won’t hear anything from the bustle of the village. Just enjoy the unique view from your private terrace to the open sea, the natural harbour bay, and the Chora on the mountain top. Beautiful Livadakia Beach with trees and shades is only 5 minutes walking distance.

The studios are nice and functional (including fridge, AC, TV), each has its own terrace and beautiful views. The place is very clean, the rooms are cleaned up daily. Stella and Theodore are always warm and friendly hosts. A wonderful place to relax and enjoy, we would always recommend Aeolos with Stella and Theodoros!

Room Tip: Just choose a view towards the open sea or the harbour bay.

We booked Aeolos Rooms directly with the owners online (easy to do by email via their website) and stayed there for 9 nights in early July, just as the season was picking up. It was a lovely experience. The owners were always accomodating and friendly. The rooms are very clean (they are cleaned daily and the sheets/towels were changed every few days). One review said that the rooms are basic, but they contain everything that you need - bed, wardrobe, toilet, shower, fridge, AC - and they are pretty large, which is great in the hot weather. Oh, and the beds are quite firm and really comfortable. Moreover every room comes with a balcony or terrace with a view of either the harbour (Livadi) or out towards the sea. Perfect for slow afternoons of reading and watching the boats coming in and out. The nearest and least windy beach, Livadakia, is about five minutes walk. Other beaches are very easy to get to and there is even a tiny cove directly across the dirt road from the rooms, which isn't where you're going to spend the day but is perfect for an early morning dip. And there are plenty of restaurants, cafes, supply shops and bars in very easy walk (5-10 mins). Overall Aeolos rooms fit very well with the low-key vibe of Serifos. In that they're not ultra-ritzy, but they are a great place to pass the time, doing nothing much in the sunshine (and wind!). I would definitely stay here again. Thanks so much for a great break!

It's the third time that I visited Serifos and the second time I stayed in Aeolos Rooms (and I will definitely go back again!) The rooms are built on the best spot of Livadi, with an amazing panoramic view over the sea, Hora and the harbor / marina. Although the area is very quiet (no noise from bars and tavernas, like in other places), it is very close to everything (beaches,bus stop,town center with shops,bars and tavernas) Livadakia beach is at 5min distance and there is a small, sort of private, beach just below the rooms! The rooms are comfortable and clean. The owners Stella and Theodore are lovely, very welcoming, discreet and really helpful. The harbor is at 3min distance, so we didn't need to carry our luggage all around and we left the room when we saw the ferry coming! Overall, the best quality/price ratio! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All rooms have great view on the sea. Best tip: take a drink and sit on your private veranda to enjo...

I have stayed in this hotel during my summer vacations. The owners are polite and the hotel is in a good location. The room was spacious but it wasn't so clean as i have expected and the bed wasn't comfortable at all. Also there is no breakfast. I would say the big advantage of this hotel is its price (60 euros), so if you want an affordable hotel then this is a good option. Otherwise, serifos has much more better hotels offering great seaview, great services but more expensive.

Once again I have returned to Aeolos Rooms and as usual a wonderful welcome from Stella and Theodore. The rooms have the most wonderful views and are in a very convenient position just above the port. I can truly recommend these rooms, so close to the port, restaurants, supermarkets and the beaches

Room Tip: All rooms have wonderful views
