Syia Hotel
Ranked #1 of 4 Sougia B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We stayed three nights of a weeks trip to the area. We had been to Sougia before, but never stayed overnight. The room was very large and well fitted out. Markos and the team could not have been more helpful. In May the village is full of walkers, German ,English and French.

Loved every moment of my time at this place. Marko does a superb job of welcoming you in and making you feel at home. The place is located a little way from the beach but it's location off of the main beach front means it is very quiet and serene. My only real complaint here is that I wasn't able to stay longer. I would recommend this place to anybody with no hesitation.

Ideal place for a relax stay in the South of Kriti, above all our expectations. Markos and his team are your best guarantee for a succesfull time in the area. All kind of recreation, food & beverage, retail shops, etc are available. Smart infrastructure of the village advantageous for the location of the hotel.

My wife and I used Syia hotel as our base in Sougia and the surrounding area for 5 nights.

To be honest it is hard to fault this hotel/B&B.

The development is very new, just 6 years old and is very tastefully furnished with a traditional but modern feel. Our room comprised of lounge/kitchen, bathroom and very spacious bedroom and was very light and airy. The balcony had nice views towards the sea and mountains and was perfect for sitting on at the end of a days adventures while having a cooling beer.

The balcony also has a clothes horse for drying towels etc or for drying the clothes that the proprietor of the hotel will have washed for you on request.

There are two air con units (one in the bedroom and one the lounge/dinner).

The bathroom is a wet room and works well. I have seen posts that question this arrangement but we could not see any issue at all.

The room rate includes a cold Buffett breakfast which is just perfect for setting the day up. Beautiful Greek yogurt, cold meats and cheese, local bread and good coffee.

So with near perfect near accommodation in a location just 300m from the sea front we were even more delighted to find that the hotel manager, Markos, is wonderfully helpful and accommodating. There was nothing that was too much trouble and his knowledge of the area was of great help on many occasions.

There is no question that we would try and stay in Syia again on a return visit to Sougia. Having only stated in this one hotel in Sougia we can't obviously say that it us the best hotel in the village, however I would be very surprised if there is better or if there is one with such a wonderful proprietor and such well appointed accommodation. Just fantastic!

It nearly churlish to mention it, but the one thing we would change is to switch off the centrally located hotel ornamental fountain in the evening. We loved to sit and chat with a drink on our balcony in the evening before heading out to dinner. The fountain was directly below us and is very intrusive and drowns out the sound of the cicadas and other insects and birds that fill the evening with their song.

Cheers.

Room Tip: Try and get a second floor room with a view of the sea and mountains. Thus will cost a little more b...

Very nice small hotel in wonderfull Sougia. Staff were all very nice especially ht manager/owner who helped out with a small problem re our arrival day.
Good basic breakfast included in the perhaps high room rate but the hotel is a lot better than most Greek accomodation.
Very large bedroom, small kitchen area if required, small bathroom.
Only 2 minute walk to beach and bars and restaurants.
Beach a mix of large and small pebbles/stones so beach shoes may be needed for those with tender feet.
Nudist area of beach to the left near two great beach bars and the tents.
Would use again if we are back in Sougia.

I have stayed in Syia Hotel two times and i have to admit that it's the best choice for a traveller in Sougia.
This small managed hotel was everything i was looking for in a quiet relaxing place like Sougia.
Positive Facts:
-New build with perfect facilities
-Clean rooms
-Helpful Staff
-Quiet and relaxing atmosphere
-Fine Breakfast
-Spacious rooms tastefully furnished
The only negative fact i can think of is that Syia Hotel is the most expensive hotel / room appartment in Sougia but i believe that it's justified since it offers the best facilities over there.
I strongly recommend this hotel to everyone who wishes to spend time in Sougia.
I will fefinitely visit Syia Hotel again!

Room Tip: All rooms are spacious & in perfect condition

We stayed one night in the Syia hotel, and would have liked to stay more. Absolutely beautiful, spacious and comfortable accomodations. Marko went out of his way to make us feel at home. He was waiting for us when we arrived, and gave our stay his own personal touch. One and a half minute walk from the beach. A stay in Sougia is a dream vacation- quiet lovely beach, crystal clear water, mountains all around, and the Syia hotel completes it to perfection!!

Room Tip: none, all ok. We got a room near the center of the building which gave a view from both sides.
