Sofokles Hotel
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Agios Ioannis
Reviewed August 31, 2012

The staff was helpful. Rooms were small (could only accomodate 2 people, so a family of 4 needed 2 rooms) and old fashioned but clean. It had an elevator for ease of moving suitcases. The hotel also had a swimming pool, and free wi-fi in the lobby and on the pool deck only. Hotel is situated on a very nice beach.

This hotel is very good. It has nice (but small) and clean rooms overlooking the beach, so obviously, a beautiful unobstructed view.
The owner is very nice and helpful to find a place to park. His daughter in law, who spends the whole summer in the hotel, is American, very kind and professional.
Breakfast is OK (tasty Greek yoghurt, honey, fantastic bread as often in Greece,good coffee...) and can be enjoyed on the outside terrace in front of the sea.
Across the quiet road, access to the beautiful beach where sunbeds and umbrellas can be rented.
This place's worth its price.

Awful rooms! The beds are not comfortable at all.No space in the room.It is difficult even if you want to go from the bathroom to the balcony.The colours, the old, cheap furnitures and the few lights gives you a very depressing mood. Bad maintained bathroom. No soundproofing. There was a lot of noise from the road in front of the hotel and from the music of the bar, next the reception, and the people who staid late at night talking and laughing there.
Bad service! The breakfast was at least unacceptable! Very expensive for nothing!

When we arrived to this village we were completely blown away by it's beauty. The hotel is located on the best part of the beach and the place was very comfortable, clean and the staff was friendly. What more can you ask for?

I thought resorts like this one had all disappeared. We found the hotel to be spotlessley clean and comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous and the staff were all helpful and friendly. The hotel was a bit pricey but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and even extended by a day to make the most of it. I would definitely go there again.

I sent by bank transfer a deposit of Euro 350,00 to this Hotel in May to book a stay for the month of August; in June my wife had health problems and I asked if it was possible to have back at least a part of the deposit. I was very disappointed because they kept all the 350 Euro and they never answered me although I send them 3 e-mails. Please think twice before sending a deposit to this hotel.

The hotel is not near Tsangarada but right on the beach at Agios Ioannis with only a quiet harbour road between it and a beautiful sandy beach. So do try to get a sea view. The rooms are on the small side and clean, but there are minor problems (a shower fitting that came away from the wall, a dodgy looking electric plug, etc.) Breakfast is served in the vine covered entrance area, nothing special, but a lovely place to eat. There is a nice little pool. The hotel could not manage credit cards but trusted us to pay by bank transfer after we got home - very trusting! If the price were more modest, this would be a very nice place to stay, but it is somewhat overpriced for what it offers.
