“Better than ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

A genuine warm welcome once again. These apartments are run by a lovely Greek family.
The accommodation has been recently redecorated giving a bright fresh feel to it. The kitchen is basic but there is an electric kettle, couple of pans,plates, knives, forks, cups and glasses. There is also an option to pay for air conditioning if the Greek summer gets too much.
It is an ideal base for exploring the island and is very close to the airport ( don't be put off by that as the short transfer more than makes up for the minimal aircraft noise)
If you are not into exploring you could make use of the family cooking and pool/bar without having to move for the duration of your holiday.
The rooms are cleaned daily, as is the pool, by very friendly, long term staff.
If anything appears to be a problem as i am not foolish enough to believe it could be 100 percent perfect all the time, the family are always around and make every effort to help.
I went with two girlfriends for our annual chill out holiday. Is as the fourth time we have stayed here and will do so again next year.
We have been to Kefalonia together since one friends was 40 and we celebrated her 50th this year. Maria made a 'traditional' Greek birthday cake for us and all the guests in the restaurant, as well as decorating the table with the banner and balloons. She also placed beautiful roses for added decoration.
This place is ideal

My son and I have just returned from a week at Sotiris studios. A really lovely place to stay - basic but spacious room, cleaned every day. I have rarely seen such thorough cleaning in anywhere I've stayed - the rooms, pool, and all communal ares are cleaned at least every day.
The food in the restaurant is lovely, and there is a daily special. The studios are run by the whole family, and they are all so attentive, Maria is really warm and makes you feel so welcome.
The location is very quiet which I loved, but it would be an advantage to have a car if you want to get the best out of your stay on the island, there is so much to see on Kefalonia from stunning beaches and harbour villages, to amazing mountain passes. We hired a car from Greekstones just up the road from Sotiris, they were affordable and offered a very friendly service.
This was my fourth trip to Kefalonia and I will definitely be back!

Myself and my partner wanted a break away for some sun. The hotel was perfect, very quiet, rooms were big and clean and perfect for what we wanted. The rooms were cleaned everyday, we bought food from the supermarket which made it cheaper. The pool area was great, with quiet music playing and everyone is just sitting reading their books in the sun. We ate at the hotel once, we had moussaka and it was lovely. The area itself is very remote , there are a couple of restaurants on the front that's it! My advice would be to hire a moped for 2 days at 30 euros, and see lassi ( gorgeous beach , lots of restaurants) go to myrtos beach( we just took pics of the view) , continue to Assos, it was beautiful. We went to argostolli which was nice, more restaurants. We bought some honey from the mountains, had lovely weather. Great place to visit.

My wife and Istayed here for a week. The weather wasn't on our side but we were really pleased with the accommodation and the very friendly staff. The Sotiris is handily placed for the airport and only a short walk to the beach and uphill to the village.
We would definitely go back.

We stayed at Sotiris Studios in October on the very last week of the season, in fact we were the last 2 guests! However, the service we received was still fantastic the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The food on site was great everything was tidy and nothing was too much trouble. Despite being the last 2 guests on the last night, we were still made to feel very welcome and were not rushed to leave the bar etc. I would recommend Sotiris to anyone and only being a 5 minute drive from the airport made transfers etc very convenient. If we return to Kefalonia, we would definitely stay here again.

I suppose the best recommendation is to return and this is our 4th time.
This is a family run complex. Staff are wonderful and can't help you enough. The food, if you choose to eat here, is excellent.
We (the girls) have been coming to Kefalonia for 10 years together (I have been about 15 times).
I love the island and have always felt safe here. ]
We have tried many resorts . restaurants and accommodation but have found this the best.
It is our 'chill out' treat.

Room Tip: rooms away from the pool are a little more private but have been happy to have any room there.

My husband, our baby daughter and I stayed here in late September. Also on the trip was my sister and my parents. As previously reviews have stated - this is a nice familyrun hotel where you get a personal greeting and farewell from the owners. The apartments are basic and some of them need some TLC but for the money spent this is a nice enough place. Everything is cleaned daily and the pool area and restaurant is a nice place to hang out in. We even enjoyed watching the airplanes go by, the sound and sight of them didn´t bother us at all.

If you need some laid-back place to spend some relaxing time this is the place to be. There´s not much to do and that´s the idea. If you want some action choose another destination.

Svoronata is a small place and as we were here off-season the restaurants were almost empty.
