This place has it all: good location, nice rooms, and terrific service by Markos and the staff. I found it by accident when the place I had been looking at on air bnb wasn't available, and the owner recommended this hotel. So glad he did.
Sougia is an excellent base for hiking Samaria and Aghia Irini gorges. It has a nice beach (mix of rock and sand) and a chill atmosphere where nobody is fronting and people are just doing their thing.
Markos goes beyond the call of duty: he'll be up at dawn to see you off or up absurdly late to greet you if you make arrangements. I had gotten the time of my flight wrong and was coming in from Athens much later than I thought, so had to put off arrival to the next day. Markos smoothed everything out and didn't charge me for that night. In the US, where I'm from, they would have charged and made me feel guilty and perhaps even come after me with a spear (joking about that last part).
the room is huge, the AC works a charm, and there's a nice garden. Can't wait to go back.More
