This is the kind of place that could be considered boutique with quality rooms and excellent service. This hotel offers a more relaxing stay, away from any tour groups. Their breakfast was a nice way to start the day and the room was very modern and well designed. All staff at the front desk provided the excellent service!

We were ready to go home, I asked the owner of Sofoklis whether there were any empty rooms, which of course he did not have as it was full season. However, he offered us a... More

Hotel is really lovely, rooms are recently renovated, clean and cosy. Towels are changed every day. Wifi worked well. Position is also great, right of the beach of Agios Ioannis, about 5-10 min from Plaka beach and about 15-20 min from Papa Nero beach, so plenty of choices to go swimming. There is a small swimmig pool, but I have... More

“Great trip, quiet family hotel on the beach. Lovely owners, very helpful and answering all questions you may have. the trip from Volos is a bit long, as you needs to pass trough Pelion mountain, but it is all worth is in the end. The sea view rooms are great, and have a small balcony. Rooms are not huge, but you have enough room to get around. The lobby / reception area is beautiful. Outside area for breakfast is amazing, sitting and enjoying your breakfast under the grapevines, in the shade - while overlooking the Aegean Sea!!!!”
