Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We have just had our fourth stay at Hotel Sonia. This is a terrace style hotel run by Sonia and her family. The suites were refurbished in 2011 to a high standard. Sonia and her family made us feel so welcome and nothing is a problem - from recommendations of where to eat, what see and do on Kos, transport etc. Hotel Sonia is ideally located just one block from the harbour foreshore which is lined with restaurants and a very short walk to the Old Town Kos for some fabulous shopping. Our room was lovely with ensuite, flat screen TV, mini fridge, airconditioning, double glazing and super comfortable beds. Each morning Sonia does the most fabulous breakfast made with local fresh food and her omelette is delicious. All served on a fabulous terrace. Sonia and her family always make you feel so welcome she will go to great lengths to ensure that your stay is perfect.

Room Tip: Most suites have a balcony with views. Corner suites are large and sunny with a wrap around balcony...

Mrs Sonia and her son are the most welcoming hosts . The Hotel is very well located just behind the harbour. Rooms are well appointed with all what you need and a beautiful terrace. Mrs Sonia is very helpfull also on sightseeing and informations about Kos. I will certainly come back.

OK - how many hotels have you been to where the owner is standing in the street at 06.10 phoning a taxi for you? She had not forgotten to book one the previous day just that on Kos you can pretty much only pre book taxis to the airport and we only wanted one to the ferry. Most small hotel owners would, understandably, give you the phone number and say "They speak English"!! Not Sonia and that is what makes this a special hotel. It's also amazing value, clean with free wifi and a pretty terrace. Breakfast is also good at €5. Situated pretty much in the town centre but on a quiet street, it is particularly good to be there at the end of the season when things are winding down out of town.

Room Tip: We were on the ground floor so not much view on the other hand the stairs up to the upper rooms were...

Sonia and her family are really welcoming and helpful - in every way, offering great restaurant recommendations, sights, car rentals, and services. The rooms in this family hotel are comfortable and pleasant, and well priced. The location is quiet, but just a block off the harbor, so you can get in and out of the Old Town and harbor mix in no time. Kos town is quite an interesting place, as is the surrounding countryside, and Sonia helps you get to it all.

Sonia and her sons are so welcoming and helpful - they are truly what makes this place great.

We didn't have high expectations of Kos or this hotel, as we were really using it as a 'stop-over' on our way to another Island for a friends wedding.. However day one, over breakfast, Sonia asked us what we were doing for the day, and as we didn't have any plans (besides finding a Laundromat) she mapped out a whole day for us and got us out and about and really seeing what Kos had to offer. She told us not to bother to look for a Laundromat as she would wash our clothes for us.. which she did.. while we were out enjoying the sun and the beach!!!
As others have noted, the location is fantastic - 1 min walk into the town, a bit further for the beach so it is nice and quiet.
The rooms are a little dated and the bathroom very small, however you get what you pay for, and this is great value for money.

Sonia thanks for your warmth and hospitality and getting us out to explore Kos.

This is a real find in Kos. Sonia and her family are so welcoming and friendly it's like going home. The place is spotless, really nice rooms for a very reasonable rate. Breakfast is great and the location superb. Loved it.

When a waiter in a bar gives you a card and recommends a hotel, you're bound to be a bit suspicious, but when my partner and I returned to Kos a couple of weeks later and phoned up on spec for a room, we were very pleasantly surprised. Hotel Sonia is within walking distance of the harbour and so is convenient for the ferries, but also far enough from the night life as to guarantee a good night's sleep! Our room was clean and comfortable, with air con and a recently refurbished bathroom. The room rate was extremely good value for money and included continental breakfast on a pleasant balcony. Sonia and her sons were friendly and helpful, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
