Anything described in the Sofoklis Hotel profile is not true. The hotel is not alone on the beach but is a part of the main street hotels' line in Agios Ioanis. The cleaness of the room was very poor. The whole room's interior was in bad condition, not renovated at least several years. We were very disappointed and left the hotel as quick as possible.
Very nice and clean hotel just at the beach - very helpfull english speaking host and personel. - good restaurants nearby at the promenade - very few foreign tourists in area.. Only problem could be the 1-1½ hour drive from Volos over Pelio mountain to the hotel.
Location is very good! The rooms were small, bathrooms very small. Overpriced for what it offered if one excludes the location. Expensive prices for refreshments, coffees served at the bar, umbrellas at the beach.
The location is excellent, a few steps from the beach. Tavernas are very close, with big variety. Our room was very spacious, with nice design, excellent bed (Cocomat!). The girl at the reception is very helpfull. Inexistant breakfast (cold boiled eggs, no hot water for tea -we had to ask for it !!!- no fruits etc). Room without window shade -our baby was waking up at sunrise!. For the price (more than €100/night) I was waiting for much more, maybe there is good intention but not a good result after all. You feel like they are amateurs (family business but not very efficient). Luck of cleaning personel. No wifi in the rooms, poor TV reception, no international channels.
The view Breakfast
Next to a beautiful beach, near restaurants and mini markets. Great view from the balcony. There was no way to keep the room shading. The curtain was almost transparent and there was no shutter. We had to wake up at 9 because of the sun. The personnel did not help us at all on this issue.
We found the staff rather stand-offish and not nearly as hospitable as all the other places we stayed in during our month in Greece. Also, my friend had her gold watch taken from our room whilst we were at the beach one afternoon.
The location is incredible ~ right on the beautiful blue beach of Agios Ioannis. The family that owns and runs the hotel is very nice and acommodating. The screen on the bathroom window was broken allowing bugs to get in. The bathroom window would not close and lock at all since the entire window frame has warped over time. Breakfast could be better.
I suggest this hotel, kind owners
Nice and friendly hotel in the Agios Iaoanis, I recommend. Verry nice.
Excellent location, clean , helpfull staff
Very, very good staff, very good location and value for money
As far as I observed the hotel is a family business, and that is a common thing in that region.That is why the hotel is very welcoming. The location of the hotel is right next to the sea, that is why the coffee or the breakfast served on the terrace can be a very pleasant activity. The room was very nice, mainly the simple and elegant furniture that has a retro air. The room had a very nice balcony from which you could see the sea. The reception hall and the bar area looked more like a living-room, mainly due to the furniture and the numerous books present around. The good music, the presence of the books and the very nice personnel gives to the hotel a very bohemian and intellectual air.
