“great stay”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Just spent a week at Babis Hotel. Could not fault it at all. Picked up and taken back to the airport by Babis. Had a lovely room (room 11) with an amazing view from the balcony . Basic twin beds, good shower and air con unit. Easy to get to just off the front up some stone steps . Great view from rooftop sun terrace. Babis and his wife available all day for any queries and are happy to help. Would defiantly recommend to others and hope to come back soon.

Babis is run for many years by the experienced couple. There are many advantages for the visitors to book at Babis. First is free transport from and to the airport. Second is a perfect location, 5 min. walk to the main Street of Skhiatos,the port and Bus terminal. The hotel is situated at the top of the Hill. In the evening one more attraction is to watch from upper terrace, the landings of the planes on the airport runway. In the early mornings, one can watch beautiful sunrise and the sun rays coming from behind the Hills on the other side of the Bay. For me one more advantage was to get additional excersise to climb 30 big stone steps and after short rest additional 10 when returning to Babis. There is another easier route, but longer
and more time consuming. The rooms needs refurbishing and some TV sets also need repair
and/or technical adjustments. I suggest to the owners to instal a computer in the lower floor at the extra charge, for the guests who travel without laptops.

The couple who run these rooms are charming and picked us up from the port. This was necessary as these rooms( it is not a hotel) are up a steep hill. My husband was deeply distressed to find our bathroom was totally inadequate as it did not have a usable shower . Room 14 is not fit for purpose. Fortunately our friends were in Room 12 and we used their shower. It was not possible to get another room as all the rooms were full. Yiotta was very apologetic and the price of our stay was reduced. None the less this room is only adequate if one doesn't wish to shower. There is a lovely roof terrace where we were treated to a complimentary coffee and cake. The walk into town is easy and it is quiet. Our luggage was driven back down to the port for us. The young couple are very helpful and we discussed the bathroom problem with them at length. It seems that is very difficult to find a solution to creating the space necessary to install a proper shower.

4 of us stayed at The Babis in late May and enjoyed our stay.
We had a friendly pick up from the port and welcome to the hotel.
The owners were friendly and most helpful with information on the island.
The rooms were clean but a bit on the small side , this was compensated for by having a good sized balcony and wonderful view.
The stairs from the main town appeared to be a problem until we were advised of a level street walk to a more central area of the town.

Close to town center but far from noise, located high up on the hill which dominate the harbor and the wonderful Pounda's bay. Great view from the bright and sunny balcony, where you can take your self catering breakfast. Spacious room, with small but well equipped cooking corner, everyday cleaning, linens changing every two days. Confortable bathroom with shower perfectly working. And, above all, the friendly and warm welcome from Babis and Yiota lets feel you like host from your own family. Babis picked us up at the airport at our arrival, and the same offered for our departure from the harbor. In my opinion, Skiathos is the most beautiful greek island, and Babis Hotel contributes to get stronger this opinion!
Surely i'll be back!!

A nice enough hotel, owners collect from airport and couldn't be more helpful. Although rooms are clean they are extremely small, 2 people on a 2 week holiday would be a no go! Hotel is on hill near windmill restaurant so it would not be appropriate for people with walking difficulties.

Room Tip: Always stay in seafront rooms or you will face a brick wall!

I want to start this off by saying that this hotel is not a luxury resort by any means. What it is, is a very nice hotel with a beautiful location and run by two very nice people, Babis and his wife Yiota.The rooms are very clean most with a wonderful view of the port of Skiathos. Their is a rooftop garden overlooking the port where you will be offered great coffee or beer from the owners. The rooms have all the amenities you could want including excellent wifi. The hotel is located in the very center of the port and close o all the fun of the wonderful Skiathos Town.

The only warning I have is for people with mobility issues. The hotel is located up a hill the makes climbing stairs or coming from the other side up semi steep streets necessary.

A little bit more about Babis and Yiota. These two people along with their hard working cleaning staff do everything they can to insure that you are comfortable and happy while at their resort including free transfer to and from the airport. They are just honestly, very, very nice people. We came as strangers but honestly felt that we left as friends. Babia and Yiota, I hope you read this. Thank you very much for helping us have such a great time on your beautiful island.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view with balcony.
