“We love Hotel Sonia”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

It was the second time we went to Kos, and the second time we stayed at Hotel Sonia. No reason to think of going anywhere else, because we loved it there the first time, and we loved it the second time just as much! Sonia, Yiannis and Afedoulis, you are the most hospitable and friendly people, and this review comes with a warm recommendation for everyone to stay at your hotel, to eat your yummy feta omelette, to smell the jasmine in your lovely garden and to have a great time in Kos. Thanks for everything! Give Liza a hug.

Room Tip: If you like your privacy: ask for room number 14, 15 or 16. They're down at the garden, and you...

You can find a very friendly environment, thanks to the owners of the hotel who are really kind and helpful. Even better, prices are fitting the whole service...that means: clean rooms with all comforts at 5 min walk from the city center. You'll like it!

The owner Sonia and here family was providing an fantastic and warm hospitality, and you feel that you are taking care of and treated as a special guest from day one of the stay.
Most of the rooms have been refurnished recently and provide a very good quality in terms of value for money.
The hotel is situated perfectly close to the harbor and the old town and just a short walk from the restaurants down town.
We also strongly recommend to order the omelet for breakfast that Sonia is preparing personally for you - and as we did every morning - a great coffy on the balcony.
If you are looking for a genuine greece atmosphere and hospitality - this is the place!!

Room Tip: Ask for room 4 or 5

Great little hotel! Really close to the harbor and good walking distance to everything. Currently the rooms are limited (I think there's only 6) and they're all upstairs but the hotel is in the process of renovating the bottom floor and adding an elevator. As it stands, the rooms are very modern with a newly renovated bathroom. Once again I have a Great little balcony and I can see the ocean! Sonia is super nice and makes breakfast every morning and asks about your plans. She's originally from Kos and has all sorts of tips on things to do. I read in a guidebook this hotel used to be a cheap pension (hence the prices) but since they're renovating and updating they kept the prices the same while they upgrade. Fine by me as it means I can afford a great, chic hotel on a grad student budget!

I do want to make on addendum though. Upon checking out this morning I did find out that they charge extra for Greek yogurt at breakfast, a staple at all other hotels. While it only amount to about an additional 2 euro charge, I was mostly annoyed that this wasn't made clear up front.

We could not have asked for more out of our stay at Hotel Sonia. It was our first time to Kos, and we did not know what to expect. Sonia and her family welcomed us in, and were particularly welcoming and accommodating to my 4 year old son. He still talks about Miss Sonia and the ice cream! :) Sonia is also a great tourist guide, giving us excellent advice on beaches, restaurants, and places to visit on the island.

The location is GREAT, just a block back from the marina, and a quick walk to many restaurants, the castle, and the beach. Parking on the street was not a problem (we were there end of June). We weren't bothered by any street noise either at night.

The rooms and bathrooms are all newly renovated, and the A/C works great. We had a late flight out our last day, and Sonia was gracious to let us come back to use the shower before our flight. Don't forget to try their iced coffee (frappe) as well. I highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Kos. You cannot get better value for your money!
