The Pension Sofia was a wonderful accommodation experience. The garden setting is very beautiful (olive trees, green lawns, places to sit; to eat; to drink coffee or tea in the morning). My room was so nice, with a fab little balcony and a view to peaceful Parikia harbour, including the sunset if you like. The room was sunny and colourful....

On a quiet back street in the village of Parikia, the Pension Sofia offers small, quiet rooms, and beautiful gardens within walking distance of the old village. An unexpected treat was to be met at the ferry by the owner who then drove us directly to the pension. The accommodations are basic, but everything you need is there. It's not...

The Pension Sofia is small extremely well maintained (Rooms and gardens) hotel in a great location within Paros. The family and staff do so much to make the hotel both friendly and efficient. They do so much to make their guests welcome. The hotel is about a ten minute walk from the port in a great location. Parikia feels like...

Manuel was kind enough to pick us up at the airport and also take us to the port upon our departure. I can't say enough good things about this place. He and his wife Sofia were lovely folks and very accommodating. We had a nice room (triple) with a beautiful view. The balcony from our room was very large and...

The hosts were very friendly. The owner recommended a restaurant nearby called...

Stayed @ Pension Sofia in Septcmber 2010. Was surprised to see the owner waiting @ the dock to give my wife and me a ride to the pension. Located close to town and a decent beach down the street. Owners were very friendly and solved an issue with the TV the same day. Would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Sofia and Manolis thank you so much your hospitality, we booked for three nights and stayed for eleven. The rooms were basic and spotlessly clean with a lovely balcony. Location for us was perfect, 100m to the water and restaurants. Close enough to walk to everything but far enough away for peace and quiet. The garden area was a joy...

Sofia and Manolis are still very helpful and run their pension with care and professionalism. Since our last time there, little extra things appeared: 1 safe in the bedroom, and free internet access in the lobby. If you love cats, go there ! if you don't love cats, go there anyway !! The beautiful garden is like an oasis in...

When I booked online the rates were so reasonable I thought it would be really basic, however, I was pleasantly surprised. Set in beautiful gardens, where you could sit out for breakfast the Pension was lovely. The room was very clean and well presented, with lovely fresh towels. The facilities in the room included a powerful shower, a fridge, tv...
