    Location is perfect!!!

    Fantastic property representing excellent value for money. Comfortable room with balcony with partial caldera view and just a few steps away to view beautiful sunset. Restaurants and convenience stores literally on the doorstep yet very quiet in the room once the door is closed. Could not be in a better location in our opinion. Easy to catch public buses around the island and to walk to Fira and Imerovigli. Owners are lovely people. We arrived early and they prepared our room as soon as possible to allow early check in and organised transfers from airport on arrival and to port on departure for us. Would definitely stay here again. Don’t hesitate to book this property.

    Great location in Firostefani!

    Great location near bus stop, restaurants, views. Spacious room with all amenities; pool is a huge plus; convenience store (which is also the reception - a bit confusing at first) is right next door. The family who owns the hotel is very nice and helpful. Definitely recommend!

    Great value, wonderful room

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Sofia Hotel. We normally stay in budget to moderate priced accommodations, and the Sofia was the nicest place we stayed in during our 2 and a half week vacation in Greece. The room was spotless, the shower was very good with lots of hot water, and the beds and pillows were comfortable, even for me with my bad back. The wifi was very good (although we had trouble connecting to start with). We had a beautiful balcony with a nice table and pair of chairs. The air conditioning functioned perfectly. We had a refrigerator and kettle which is all we really needed for breakfast. The location is excellent - you have a partial caldera view, lots of restaurants, a small store downstairs, and you have a head start on the path to Oia if you want to do the hike. Our host was very helpful and let us check-in a bit early and set up our shuttle to the airport.

    Excellent location, lovely staff

    I highly recommend this small hotel of only six rooms. The family running the hotel and shops below are welcoming, kind, and helpful. The location can't be beat and locals working nearby said I made a better choice than others paying much more for villas and having long treks up and down the stairs to get to and from their rooms. Improvements to the rooms are planned during the off season. I do not plan to return to Santorini, but if I do I will surely stay here again.

    Our Week in Hotel Sofia in Santorini Greece.

    The room was good and very central in FiraStefani. We had breakfast at a local restaurant and got 10%discount. There was no Reception office as such and we did our business through the Shop and off licence. This was actually fine and we got to know the people. There was return transport from the airport and if we needed information the shop could tell us. The room was cleaned up daily and we were happy with the air conditioning and the safe and fridge. We would come again.

    Great place!

    The room was clean and big with plenty of chairs & tables around the place to chill. A close 15 minutes walk to head into the center of Thira or Imerovigli; many restaurants and mini-markets nearby so it was in an excellent location. Everyone on the staff was very nice & even personally drove me to the airport on the last day when the airport transfer service was stuck in traffic. Thanks for your great hospitality! Would definitely stay here again!

    Great location but poor experience

    Our first night the hotel couldn't accommodate us and put us up at another place off of the main strip, what was closer to an apartment room - the bed you could feel the metal springs; an overall disappointment. Ensure the hotel does not move you for any nights because it felt as though they do this frequently to ensure full capacity at their hotel, which is only 5 rooms. The actual hotel is in a great location with a nice shared patio, good value if you don't get moved!
