We LOVE Hotel Sophia. We would absolutely stay here again if we have another visit to Hydra. So quaint and charming. The sisters who own Hotel Sophia are so helpful and very friendly. You MUST ask them to show you the downstairs area where they have a number of items from the original hotel....hearing the story of how the hotel... More

Having read previous positive reviews we chose to stay here on our brief visit to this beautiful island. We were certainly not disappointed. The hotel is situated right on the harbour. The tiny balcony is a great place to sit and watch the various comings and goings.... Bottled water, building materials and various other random supplies being loaded onto donkeys... More

We spent 6 nights here after reading the fabulous reviews on Trip Advisor. Booked in advance by e-mailing the hotel earlier in the year. We stayed in the maisonette style room which has a lounge area, shower and WC room and an upstairs bed. It's open plan with a TV upstairs and down. Ample storage space. The absolute highlights for...

We stayed at the Hotel Sophia in June 2016. It was a lovely building right on the port. We could watch the yachts land from the balcony, and it was easy to find from any where in Hydra town. The breakfasts were delicious, and I understand that the hotel provided beach towels for those going to the beach. (We didn't... More

.....And this time we stayed a full week and enjoyed every minute of warm hospitality from Aggeliki, Vasseliki and Linda. This time we stayed in the maisonette with living area and bathroom downstairs and loft style bedroom and it was great having the extra room to relax in.

We stopped in at this hotel without a reservation and the sweet woman seemed sad that she only could put us up there for one night. We had a very nice room with a balcony right at the port and I felt right in the middle of all the action. It was so fun watching the supplies being unloaded, donkeys... More

Overlooking the Hydra port this simple but charming hotel is a great find. The location is central, prices are reasonable, and the breakfast was good...as expected. The staff was attentive enough but not under foot, so to speak. The rooms have a/c but just know that it will not work unless your room card key is plugged in on the... More
