We stayed in room 212 at the Socrates Hotel from the 19th - 26th September. There were 4 of us in total, with pairs staying in the studio style rooms. I want to start off by saying that throughout our stay the hotel staff were fantastic, they were always friendly and accommodating to any of our requests. This makes such... More

Just completed our second visit to Socrates apartments - we went at the same time last year. We very rarely return to the same place but for position and value for money this place is hard to beat! There are loads of restaurants within 5 minutes walk and even more on 'The Strip' which is a further 5 mins or... More

We spent 2 fantastic weeks in Socrates Hotel in Sidari and we loved it. First of all I want to say a big thank you to the two waiters in the restaurant (and the cook who we never had a chance to meet) for all their hard work. Hotel - clean, up-to-standards I didn't count how many times we got... More

The appartments are basic and typically Greek. Our room was cleaned six times a week and towels and linen changed regularly. Our toaster didn't work so I mentioned it to... More

Seems like a month not week since we got back from this fabulous Hotel. The apartment was spacious, very clean and in the most fabulous location. The staff are really friendly and go out of their way to make you welcome while never being "in your face" and the owner Socrates made us feel like family. The Greek night and... More
