“Friendly, perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

I stayed with my family in April and we were made to feel very welcome. The rooms were kept lovely and clean and we would definitely stay here again. It was a short walk to the harbour area and there were restaurants nearby all of whom catered very well for the 2 and 4 year olds. The snack menu by the pool bar was very good and breakfast was very nicely presented. The inside swimming pool was great because although the weather was lovely the outside pool was not that warm, being only the beginning of April. The 2 bedroomed apartment was a good size and we did not have any noise at night even though we were central for everything. To be truthful I was a bit apprehensive about staying here after reading some of the reviews but I need not have worried because it was a perfect stay for us.

This is our 7th time in the hotel, a real family place great pool, great gym place and an inside pool! Where else to get all these!!!
Room massive and clean, 135 is ideal for families,
For those complain have they try the 5 stars hotel , 4 times higher the prices are those places 4 times better!?
We will highly recommend this hotel for follow reasons:
Just out of bar street, very close to supermarket and harbor, very close to fabrica hills which was full of wild flowers in beginning of April! Staff very friendly, our cleaner even gave us an Easter cake!!!!Some wonderful taverns across the road, "Moonlight" tavern children menu only 1.99 euros (5 different children meals same price), in the front where posh places are we saw a menu who wanted 6 .95 euros for same children meal! they having a laugh!!!not for us those prices!!!thank you!!
and of course lot and lot of sunshine!!!!!!
What else families want in a holiday!
Posh hotels??? Well, you can go and pay and arm and a leg for them?

Room Tip: hotel just out of bar street and near everywhere! go for it!

My friend and I have just returned from a weeks holiday at the Sophianna Hotel (April 2014). We had a lovely time and would recommend this hotel to others. Okay...so the room could have done with a bit of a decor uplift...but it was clean and spacious. The towels were changed every other day and beds were made. Our balcony overlooked the road and was small but this wasnt an issue for us. We used the hotel as a base to see the sights around that side of the island. We had breakfast included in the price and if I am honest...it was continental style and the same most days. A boiled egg, ham, cheese, toast and jam...choice of 3 cereals, and orange juice, tea and coffee You can buy a full english though..which we didnt realise until our last day. The pools are lovely. Im quite brave and swam every day in the outside pool, once in...it was fine. The inside pool was smaller but warm. And there is also a jacuzzi and a gym and sauna. The staff were all very friendly and polite. They did their best to make our stay good and were very helpful. the location of the hotel is 5 minutes walking distance to the harbour and all the restaurants and bars. But the hotel itself was very quiet..away from the main hub. We were able to pick up a bus easily by walking to the bus station situated at the harbour and buses were regular...10 minutes. We got a bus to Coral Bay which took about 20 minutes. We also took a bus up to the old town and market...which was great for a little look around. If any of you think of sending postcards.....can I suggest that you buy them and post them in the old town if you go there.....as the post office near the harbour is further away than you think....and we had quite a long walk trying to find it. It probably took us 30 minutes walk each way to buy the bloomin stamps!! They dont sell stamps in the shops. We ate out every night and our favourite two places were the Captains Restaurant on the Harbour and The Alkion Restaurant which isnt too far from the hotel. The Alkion is situated...turn left out of the Sophianna, then left again. Turn down to the right...past a bar called friends, ....then turn left on the corner. Its a lovely family run restaurant with very gently mannered staff. Food was great. The Harbour is great but be prepared for all the people trying to get you into their restaurants. We didnt feel pressured though and they were all up for a bit of banter. The municiple beach along to the left of the harbour was lovely for sunbathing on and a beautiful spot overlooking the sea, sheltered from the breeze. After our evening meals we often ended the evening in "Friends" bar and it really was friendly. There was entertainment most night and some very good tribute and comedy acts. Particularly Steve Welsh...he was hillarious and we had a right old giggle. Hope this info helps... we would definately go back again...happy holidays guys!!!

Room Tip: our room was 404 and did not overlook the pool...but it was quiet ...

5 th time in this hotel and we are felt the changes after the arrive of the new manager! Most of the staff the same (litsa in reception very nice person) but new staff made the diferent!
Hotel is just about entering the Horbour which is far enough so will not be in the midle of the noise!Thats why we are using this place so long!
Everything you need so near ,supermarket Papantnio 5 minutes walk from hotel ( we never use the mini markets near hotel , too expensive and not very clean!especialy one look like second hand shop)Market up top the road and Light house beach 10 minutes walk!
Drinking at the "aces" bar with spirous only 5 minutes walk down the road from hotel !and eat at "moonlight" tavern and snack bar across the road from entrance of hotel
A new place open across the road from hotel next to "moonlight" so we try it but not very impressed, since a bottle of cyprus wine 18 euros !!we usally buy the same thing at supermarket for 3euros ,,,,,,,not for us that place !!!
over all great place to stay and highly recommended

Room Tip: always use 104, nice view to the pool!

Visited in March and so area very quiet. Weather just right at this time of year.
Reception staff both friendly and helpful. Showed us to our rooms which were clean and functional. Beds comfortable and we got a good night's sleep, every night.
Unfortunately, rooms and common areas are very dated and in dire need of refurbishment. Old fashioned TV with not many channels but not a problem, as we don't go on holiday to watch TV. Plenty of electrical sockets (and they are 240 volt British sockets too). Kitchen area was more than adequate for our needs. Balcony overlooked the swimming pool but was very small. The free use of a safe in the room was a bonus. Wi Fi had to be paid for and was expensive - it should be free everywhere, in this day and age. Most of the bars have free wi fi anyway. We bought a local data only sim card for when we wanted internet access in the hotel.
Breakfast (every day) consisted of toast, a boiled egg, a small plate of cheese and fake Spam, tea or coffee and orange juice. We didn't bother with it after the second day. Supermarket around the corner. Groceries are pricey here but bottles of wine and beer are quite cheap. Swimming pool looked OK but we didn't use it.
In a good area and central to everything. There are a number of tours and boat trips in the area. There are a few interesting archaeological sites in the area and loads of bars and restaurants to choose from. A great bar is the sky Bar which is part of the Pyramos hotel. The George & Dragon is quite good too.
Food is pretty much the same, whichever restaurant you dine in, but the prices tend to vary a lot. A 1 litre caraf of house wine is usually cheaper than a 750ml bottle. The best meal we had (and the cheapest too) was on our last day at the Blue Mare, down by the castle. Try the grilled octopus - very nice.
They drive on left in Cyprus and it is probably cheaper to hire a car than using a minibus transfer. We booked with Economy Car Hire and it cost 40 GBP for the week, which included damage excess waiver and a full to full fair fuel policy.
Be sure to drive up to the capital (Nicosia) and cross the border (on foot) into Northern Cyprus for an hour or two (passports needed). Limassol is also worth a visit for a couple of hours.
Good holiday, all in all. I would certainly use this hotel again but I do wish they would a) update the place a little, b) provide free internet access and c) vary the breakfast a little.

would like to say thank you to lisa and renata for making us feel welcome, the sofianna apts are very well placed near bar street, taxi rank and not far to sea front, lots of shops, bars, disco clubs, restaurants,will buzz in higher season. try the moonlight bar right oppposite amazing,,, we were given a security key for the safe which i think is a brilliant idea at no extra cost, this i think should be included in the price of your holiday anyway please note all hotels, rather than rip folk off. room was cleaned regularly sheets and towels too. lovely gardens, maids clean the sunbeds in the morning too. breakfast was the same everyday which again i aint picky but might not suit everyone. i felt the pool a bit slimy underfoot and looked a bit green in places but was assured cleaned regularly, the gym only the running machine worked, and one weight machine, bikes etc needs upgraded, there is an indoor pool too very warm good for kids, and a sauna if you wish. rooms are okay, some carpeted, i cant say anything negative, just constructive i hope, we had nice time here but it may not be for everyone

Room Tip: you may not want rooms over the bar could be noisy at night if you have kiddies, rooms opposite i th...
