The rooms are beautifully and clean and well appointed in the centre of Hydra town, where one can spend hours watching the donkeys at work delivering the groceries to the various hotels. Breakfast is amazing and plentiful and...

Having read previous positive reviews we chose to stay here on our brief visit to this beautiful island. We were certainly not disappointed. The hotel is situated right on the harbour. The tiny balcony is a great place to sit and watch the various comings and goings.... Bottled water, building materials and various other random supplies being loaded onto donkeys...

We stayed at the Hotel Sophia in June 2016. It was a lovely building right on the port. We could watch the yachts land from the balcony, and it was easy to find from any where in Hydra town. The breakfasts were delicious, and I understand that the hotel provided beach towels for those going to the beach. (We didn't...
