We have stayed in Hotel Babis in each of our visits to Skiathos over the last 4 years and would highly recommend it to anyone!
The rooms are always so clean and have all of the facilities that you need. The rooms with the sea view have an absolutely amazing view across the harbour from the balcony which is absolutely gorgeous.
The hosts are always so lovely and friendly, they're always helpful and so everything they can to ensure that you enjoy your stay.
The location is beautiful, high up in Skiathos town with quick and easy access to the main streets and all of the restaurants and bars etc. The stairs leading up to the Hotel can be quite a climb in the heat but aren't too bad at all. Babis is also extremely close to the bus stop and a short walk to the harbour meaning that you can access the public transport to take you to the beaches and around the island very easily.
Overall I would highly recommend Babis to anyone looking to stay in Skiathos town, the location and rooms are brilliant with absolutely fantastic hosts.
We can't wait to visit again next year!

The bed in our appt is so broken, i cannot believe people were able to sleep before us. I have backpains from the first 2 minutes, every 2 cm theres another stone hard bump on the bed, horrible expirience, you get what you pay for, which is not the cheapesr when it comes to Greek islands, but for Skiathos it is very cheap. Although, if you dont want permanent back damage, and days to repair it after a very bad sleeples holiday, you can come at babis yeah sure why not

Babis Hotel has the most amazing views of the new harbour and the airport, there is a constant flow of planes and ferries and yachts on the move. The upstairs terrace is certainly a place to spend many hours. If you can book the two top rooms leading onto the terrace you have much more space. The owners, Yiota and Babis are absolutely fabulous. Babis fetched us from the airport and got up at 5 am to deliver us back to the airport two weeks later. Yiota is always around and offered us a frappe even when she had a million other things to do. This is certainly a wonderful and value for money place to stay in Skiathos close to the bus stop and town.

We stayed here last year for one week and couldn't wait to return for our two week stay this year.
Babis and Yiota go out of their way to make your holiday experience a great one and you feel like you are staying with friends due to the lovely warm reception you receive.
Selfishly, I'd prefer you not to stay here as it's our hidden Greek gem and we'd love to keep it that way!
If you like "all singing and dancing" characterless hotels then you'll be disappointed.
This is the true Greek experience at it's best.

Just returning from our trip to Skiathos/Skopelos, where we stayed overnight at Babis before catching a ferry onwards to our final destination. And I have to say that we will definitely stay there again when we return next year.
Babis met us off our plane, drove us to the hotel, drove us next day to the ferry, and returned us to the airport on our return. This is all included in the modest price.
Great service!
Also a lovely shaded terrace/ roof garden to admire the view from and enjoy a sundowner etc.
Might not be the most luxurious place we have ever stayed in but definitely one of the friendliest.
Highly recommended.
