“A beautiful gem of a place on a wonderful island!”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

We, my husband, myself and my two children who are now teenagers, have been going here now for many years and consider Alex as one of our very best friends! Pension Sotos could not be considered as the height of luxury but it is clean, comfortable and very unique. It is a haven on the waterfront of Skopelos main harbour and very close to some very good tavernas, bars and cafes. It is not noisy although at the very heart of things,the two terraces within the heart of this traditional Skopelitan home are a tranquil place to sit and read, have breakfast or just a few late night glasses of wine with friends. If you want a pool there are some hotels in Skopelos town within easy walking distance that do not mind you using their facilities or you can catch one of the many local buses that run throughout the day to go to the beaches, all of which are so beautiful! A holiday at Pension Sotos is laid back and traditional, a world away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and a true place in which to unwind.

It has it - right on the waterfront.

Up a steep flight of steps to be greeted by Alex, its very relaxed here - so if she is not here you just pick up the phone and call her. Lovely rooms which are traditional and well loved. Its clean tidy, no airs and graces honest greek accommodation - and i loved it.
Help yourself shared kitchen and breakfast out in the courtyard, beneath the Lemon and Orange trees, surrounded by fragrant flowers an an abundance of Geraniums.

Give it a try, you will enjoy it ...

Room Tip: High rooms have no better view, due to the trees, but the courtyard ones looked lovely.

Ok all of what has been said before is absolutely true. This is renovated traditional building. It is absolutely stunning in terms of location and ambiance. To get to Sotos get off the Ferry, turn right, and walk along the quayside for 100m. It is nestled amongst the shops and Tavernas. Location wise it couldn't be better. Clean rooms, nice bathrooms and plenty of hot water. Shower screens of the clingy curtain type and definitely not made for two but hey honeymooners won't notice. Run by the charming Alex, a straight talking but lovely woman who has been running Sotos for 30+ years. The rooms all have single abutting beds many with three for families. Some rooms overlook the Tavernas which was fine for me. If you want really quiet rooms go for the ones around the courtyard at the back. If you want a view or the harbour rooms 1, 2 and 7 are the go. Wooden floors (that creak in the night) and stairs. If you have any questions just give Alex an email. She seems to respond quickly. Tea and coffee making facilities in the shared kitchen. You could cook there but why would you when you could go downstairs to any number of cheap places? Wi Fi available.

Room Tip: View = noise, courtyard = quiet

beautiful old traditional Skopelos house (right at the harbour) turned into a pension with the lovely Alex as it's owner, we have stayed here 3 times over the last 26 years and will return over and over again. Beautiful courtyard for having breakfast in the morning, beautiful terrace overlooking the harbour and the terraces below, what more could a person wish for?

Kir Sotos pension was exactly what I was looking for, a nice and clean room with en suite facilities and warm water 24/7 in central Skopelos.
The hostess Alex is most friendly.
There's a fridge where I had some water and youghurts.
The loveliest terrace and courtyard! Luxury to eat breakfast overlooking central Skopelos town!

N.B the place has quite a lot of stairs!

Alex now has a regular visitor in me.
