The best unit on the island – and perhaps on the Sporades - at the entrance of Hora.
Stone built with traditional style inside and outside, it is a little gem with all that we ask from a hotel.
The best solution but also the most expensive are the seven rooms in skyrian houses, which are replicas of traditional houses with skyrian sfa (sofa).They are  multi-level: the bedroom is up and down in another level there is the living room with two beds and in other level there is the kitchen and the bathroom.
They have old skyrian furniture and antiques, a fireplace, full of wood ready to warm you in the winter, iron beds, full ceramic dinnerware for 6 people, autonomous heating, fabric armchairs and marble tables on the balconies.
Similar but in two levels are the four rooms in the stone houses both in the complex Nefeli.
The cheaper solution is the 10 rooms of Nefeli with small balconies overlooking the pool or the Castle. There is American breakfast that is served all day, with Skyrian cheeses, homemade spoon sweets, fresh fruit, donuts, local honeys and tiganopsomo. In the swimming pool there are wooden deck chairs, and fabric sun loungers with cushions and stool for your feet.
 
The hotel is among the best hotel’s breakfast by Alpha Guide.

+

Four luxury apartments lined with stone at the entrance of Skyros Town take you to a place with antique furniture, built on three levels, pool and garden, overlooking  Hora and the monastery.

+

Modern hotel built in traditional style, combining hotel rooms with larger apartments. Located right on the edge of town and is fairly quiet.

We suggest you request a room with view and book in advance because it is very popular.

NEFELI : A  FAIRY TAIL FROM SKYROS
 
 
 
By the journalist Iro Kounadi
 
 
 
As you go through the familiar Cycladic nudity of the scenery from the port to the chora of Skyros, you will pleasantly surprised by the lush greenery of the northern part of the island! You see it for the first time in a turn of the road, just before entering the village: a group of white houses, full of curved lines and fuchsia bougainvilleas. At first glance however, you don’t realize that passing the doorstep, you will find yourself in a parallel universe! ….A universe full of flowers and trees loaded with fruits, birds that twitter and flutter over the pool and the rock of the country, with its whitewashed houses , to contribute to the perfect background.
 
The winner of the Ecotourism distinction for ecological concerns Nefeli, is not another ordinary 4-star luxury hotel but a unique hotel and the description that demonstrate it as a combination of luxury and tradition is not even a boring cliché. It's luxury is hidden behind natural materials, airy fabrics, atmospheric lighting, organic produce, authentic smiles, simple and clean lines that follow once again the local architecture and sometimes the creators’ imagination.
 
 
Rooms with five stars view…
 
The five different "structures" that comprise Nefeli's neighborhood, are unfolded around the pool, which as a single country's water resources together all the feathered inhabitants who twitter constantly! The hotel was inaugurated in 1989 and since then it constantly evolves, to suggest different aesthetics, to fulfill all tastes….
 
            You can choose from the minimal luxury suite with its private pool and Skyros houses, exact reconstruction of the traditional houses of Skyros! In the past those tine houses which are squeezed together around the castle, people used to fit their lives and their household in a few square meters, to wrath of the pirates. Whether you opt for the stone buildings, whose rooms are decorated with fantastic antiques or the Modern Stone ones that combines the sheer lines and architecture with built-in sofas on the balcony and panoramic view to the Chora, the choice is yours.
 
 
            Room supplies include mini bar, satellite TV, hair dryer, fireplace (to be used in the winter), wi-fi and of course the expected: telephone, air conditioning and central heating. The hotel also has a lending library, room service, swimming pool 220 square meters, filled with sea water, a garden enriched with tropical plants and fruit trees, a children's pool and a room especially designed for people with disabilities.
 
 
 
Rides in the island….
 
 
Whichever room you choose, be assured that you will find it difficult to part with the balcony or your living room. Even in the bathrooms vivid colors have been used and striking architecture as if they want to “keep” you indoors. Although the smiling owners swear that they did nothing on purpose, they trying to encourage visitors to find out as many parts as possible of their unexplored island, proposing them itineraries, activities and of course beaches to suit every taste.
 
And Skyros boasts of all the above in superlative …. When you manage to give up the cosiness of your room, you may walk on the village's cobbled streets, visit the interesting folk and archeological museums, ride from the south to the north, to see the landscape changing from the familiar Cycladic to the tufted pinewood and can be sure hope that somewhere you will encounter the unique Skyrian Horses galloping carefree. You will also dive in beaches with emerald waters and pine trees that litterally touch the sea….
 
 
Tastes and smells of Skyros………
 
 
Returning from your strolls, you will able to taste traditional local cuisine in the restaurant or by the pool. The dishes vary daily, depending on the available materials that almost all of them came from a private farm. So this is the answer to your question why the tomatoes in your salad smell all over the place, or why your meat is so tasty.
 
 
            The delicious buffet breakfast…..is daily loaded with all sorts of handmade goodies, from local cheese and French toast up to homemade chocolate cakes, and from exceptional pumpkin- pies to donuts that just came out of the oven. Another plus, is that the kitchen is open, so it communicates with the restaurant and with the external place and you see step by step how your meals are being prepared, so you can find out secrets of the homemade dishes of the Skyrian cuisine.
 
 
At night, the ambient lighting of the pool makes a wonderful contrast to the lights that light up the village one after another, creating the perfect setting, to gaze at the stars from the huge sofas, or with the help of the telescope, which the hotel owns, accompanied by a carefully selected wine-catching list and obviously, to devise the perfect plan to leave tomorrow or even the next day or after a week.
 
 
 
Nefeli is open all year round. The prices of high season in August starts from 110 € for a standard double room and 135 € for the traditional Skyros House, which accommodates up to four people, of course, all prices include an excellent breakfast.

Hotel Nefeli is Highly Recommended from Frommer's
 
Hotel Nefeli Review

The most ambitious -- and arguably the best -- in-town option is the Nefeli, designed and furnished in traditional Skyrian style. It is actually composed of five buildings, each with various room arrangements and amenities; there are even some with kitchenettes. The bedrooms and bathrooms are decent in size and well appointed; many units have fine views. The large downstairs lobby is a welcoming space. Reserve in advance, as the Nefeli is one of the favorite choices on Skyros.

Facilities:
Restaurant; bar; children's play area; 2 pools (1 children's); smoke-free rooms; Internet access

+

It is located at the entrance of Hora of the island.

It is definitely the best hotel on the island. It offers beautiful surroundings and a variety of high quality services.
