My fiance booked Hotel Sophia for a nice getaway from Athens. I had no idea what to expect - all I knew was that it was located in the port. When we walked in we were greeted by two of the nicest ladies (sisters who own the hotel). We arrived early, but that didn't matter. They took our bag and offered us breakfast. I just knew we were going to have a great experience! We stayed two nights in a gorgeous room - very art deco and modern - with a patio overlooking the port. Absolutely perfect for when my fiance proposed to me and I shouted to the passerbys below that I was now engaged!!! Yes, the engagement made for a wonderful trip and nothing could bring me down. However, I travel a LOT for work and have stayed at some fantastic properties and some not so fantastic. Hotel Sophia was truly perfect - Clean, Modern, A Homey Feel and the sisters were always friendly! We will certainly be taking another trip to Hydra and staying at the Hotel Sophia - hopefully for a honeymoon or annivesary!

My fiance and I were travelling throughout Greece visiting my family. We had a weekend to visit one more island and took a chance on Hydra, not knowing what to expect. We loved the island the minute we caught a glimps of the port from the distance. We didn't make a hotel reservation and stumbled upon another B&B the first night. The first place was not even close to even the simplest expectations. Luckily, after much wandering the next day we took a chance and spoke to lady of the house at Hotel Sophia. I say took a chance because most of the other nice hotels we inquired to were double the rate we hoped to spend for one night and the Hotel Sophia was in a prime location, so we expected it to be pricey.

The family who own Hotel Sophia welcomed us with open arms and saw that we had been searching the entire little port town for a place to stay, so they were very accomodating on the price negotiation. This is definitely a family-run hotel. I even borrowed their daughter's hair dryer when we first arrived.

Our room was gorgeous. Very modern and artistic with exposed stone walls, plush beds with high quality linen, free mini bar, flat screen tv and comfortable stand up shower. The rooms are soundproof to the bustle of the city below. There are 2 balconies facing the port that the guests share, but it seemed to work out just fine. We sat on the balcony and had a glass of wine after our day at the beaches and strolling through the town. After dinner and another stroll we found the balcony vacant again so we could enjoy the rest of the night gazing at the magnificent yachts and people walking below.

The next morning we were woken up by the wonderful aroma of bread baking and coffee brewing. I peeked downstairs and saw the owner and one of the chamber maids making fresh croisants, breads, Greek Breakfast biscuits, eggs, waffles, homemade Greek yogurt with honey...the assortment was endless. The large dining table was laid with fresh, crisp white linen and china. My fiance and I agreed it was probably the best breakfast we had at any hotel.

Our stay at the enchanting Hotel Sophia will not be forgotten!
