Travelers' Choice
Hotel Sofia is a pretty, family run hotel in Kampos Marathokampos of Samos, Greece. Set in a peaceful location with several small gardens and surrounded by mountain and sea views. It is an ideal choice for couples and families of all ages. The distance from the nearest beach, Kampos beach, is only 100m and from the resort centre around 400m, as a result, it is rather convenient for any guest!!! Hotel Sofia invites you to experience a different taste of natural beauty and hospitality that is both genuine and warm. Naturally, you will want to spend some of your holidays just relaxing and enjoying the sun, but you'll probably want to experience much more of your destination, as a consequence Samos is an ideal island because it seduces you with a heady cocktail of history, varied countryside and wonderful beaches.Free transfer to and from the airport via our hotel minibus ( we do provide free transportation if is more than 7 days ).

We stayed at Hotel Sofia for two weeks at the beginning of June and we couldn't have been happier. It was our first time in Samos and we weren't disappointed. For us, it offered everything we were hoping for. A genuine warm and friendly welcome from Vasilli and Manoli. The Hotel is traditional Greek style and our room was plenty big enough with a balcony overlooking the garden at the front. Everywhere spotlessly clean and the breakfast was more than plentiful, providing something for everyone. Thank you Nova, Manoli and Yianni for providing such a bountiful spread every morning! The cleaners, Amanda and her colleague (sorry didn't get her name as she was Greek) were excellent. Amanda making swans, elephants and boats from the fresh towels which we loved, and something we've never encountered before anywhere in Greece. They worked well as a team with towels and bed linen being changed every third day, and they wore masks when cleaning rooms as new guests arrived. Both very hard working ladies, thank you. During the course of our stay we met the whole family, Stavros and Sofia parents of Vasilli and received a warm friendly welcome from everyone. The BBQ they provided was amazing and they all worked very hard to provide a good spread of food. There was an extensive array of books for exchange, and also a Recycling table where you could leave anything you didn't want to take home with you i.e. sun tan lotion, shower gel, beach shoes etc. etc. A fantastic idea and very welcome! We visited other parts of the island, having hired a car for two days and we came to the conclusion that Votsalakia/Marathokampos was the best place, as it is flat. There are Tavernas a plenty and the beach is very close, as are supermarkets, bakery etc. It's wonderful that this village has retained its Greek traditions of hospitality and friendliness and we would highly recommend Hotel Sofia for those who are looking for small and friendly with excellent service.

First time at this hotel. Returned to Samos after 11 yrs and it’s still the same. Very traditional Greek. Great friendly people who cannot do enough for you. Hotel is in a great location. Restaurants supermarket and beach right in n your doorstep. Great friendly staff. Lovely clean rooms. (Just wished I’d packed my hairdryer as not one in the room). One of the best breakfast I’ve had . Thank you Nova.. I will be returning to this hotel and will recommend to family and friends.

We had such a lovely time in hotel Sofia. In twenty years nothing changed in Votsalakia. It was our fourth time on Samos, but first time hotel Sofia. It is a very cosy place, beautiful patio with swimming pool and impressive palm trees. The best breakfast you can get. And the best hospitality by the owners! We should have stay longer.

I travelled to Samos to visit my family for a week. Being on my own at the hotel, I felt like the staff took good care of me and were always available to help or talk whenever I needed. I will always be grateful for their welcome and kind nature. The hotel has excellent facilities and is close to local amenities including supermarkets, restaurants and the beach. I would highly recommend staying for as long as you can.... I hope to return again next year!

My wife and I stayed 10 days in August this year at Hotel Sofia. It was our first stay at Samos and therefore we wanted to have a place to stay, from where we could explore the island. With Hotel Sofia we find excatly what we wanted. It is located at Kampos, where you can find many restaurants and bars, car rentals and so on. From there you can explore the island very good. The beach is near, a few minutes walk away. The hotel is family-owned and we felt this all the time during our stay. The rooms are basic, but very clean, equipped with fridge, air con and balcony. You also have a nice pool with a beautiful garden. The breakfast is very rich with daily varieties! You find there more than enough to start the day right. We enjoyed this very much! :-) There is also a weekly BBQ night at Saturdays on the pool with lots of delicious food. We really enjoyed this, it was amazing. During our stay, there was also a "crepe night", where you could eat really tasty crepes in different ways. Just amazing! :-) So in the end we can say, that choosing Hotel Sofia was the best decission from us we could make. We could definetely recommend The hosts Nova, Vasilis und Manolis did everything for us to make our stay unforgetable. Thank you very much for that!!! :-) We found new friends there and we will definetely come back.

hotel sofia is one of the best things that happened to us in recent years. it is a great accommodation with very friendly people. we have been coming here for 5 years now and a friendly bond has developed over and over again. Hotel Sofia is a small-scale accommodation, is clean, has a good breakfast buffet, beautiful swimming pool and a pool bar where you can enjoy a drink. all of the staff are friendly and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. we are very enthusiastic and will celebrate our (spring, summer or autumn) holiday there even more often. You can book directly and without the intervention of a travel agency. in that case you will also be picked up from the airport and brought back. hotel sofia is our recommendation!

Hotel Sofia is a family run hotel surrounded by mountains and sea. Very cozy, chamber place with spacious swimming pool and beautiful garden. The nearest beach is just across the street. Sandy beach Psili Ammos is 4 km west. There are lots of tavernas, supermarket, pharmacy, bakery, car rental and cash machine nearby. Rooms are equipped with fridge, TV, Air condition and balcony. Very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was LOVELY. Very varied for 2 stars hotel!!! Buffet style with homemade staff from their own garden. You can also order fried, scrambled eggs or omlette. But the best thing in this place is grat atmosphere. You feel there like at home. Vasilis, Nova and Manolis made our stay unforgettable!!! They run this place with BIG HEART ❤️❤️❤️ You can feel it at every step!!! We hope we'll come back! We recommend hotel Sofia for everyone!!! Don't hesitate , just book !!! You won't regret IT!!!

What a beautiful place. Hotel Sofia is a small, family run hotel with 20 rooms and a quite large pool. The rooms are small but big enough for two people. Rooms are equipped with a fridge and an individual adjustable AC. Rooms got own bathrooms with a shower that gives you hot water straight away. Your private balcony gives place either to dry your bathing stuff or have a glass at night. Everything is spotless clean, sheets are changed several times per week. What else do you need for your summer vacation? Hotel Sofia lies at the end of a dead end street so its quite without any traffic, safe for kids. The sea is just a 2 minutes walk away and its clean with perfect water. Several bars help you to survive a lazy day. Breakfast is in buffet style with homemade jams and salats from their own garden. You can order eggs in different styles and they are prepared fresh as you order. If you dont want to spend the day at the beach, the pool of Hotel Sofia is very big for a hotel of that size. Even got a separate baby swimming area. The highlight of the pool is the small and perfect run bar. Its a meeting point during the day and even until late. But you will hear nothing from the bar in any of their rooms. Saturday is BBQ day. You´ll get fresh local meat and several greek delicacies made fresh right on the spot. A must when you stay there. The best thing about Hotel Sofia are the hosts. Vasili, Nova and Manoli run this place with heart and care. You feel like at home. We will definitely go again. Thumbs up
