very modern hotel with history, good view from the hotel. high class service,room.the breakfast is very good.highly recommended.
People were very warm, facilities were excellent, the room was luxurius and very clean.
Wonderful room, tastefully furnished, clean, tidy, good breakfast and great views. Some will have difficulty finding the hotel as signs could be improved and the hotel is hidden from the road. The access will also be difficult for some as it is up a cobbled narrow road where you hope you do not meet anyone coming in the other direction. This should not put you off though.
The kind people and their service
I linked the decoration, the rooms and the very polite staff The street where the hotel was located was not easy to access
There are many things to enjoy in and around the hotel. The region Pilio is by far a must, if not yet seen in Greece, to be recommended to all. 1) The location of the hotel is very accessible from Volos (the main city close to the highway). 2) The hotel comprises of 4 buildings from which 2 were just built and brand new; modern styled, basic colours, using basic colours and robust building materials. 3) The management of the hotel were very professional, warm, outgoing and helpful (info on the region, town, restaurants etc.). 4) The rooms are absolutely beautiful, modern, great bathroom, some rooms have fireplaces, the staff helps you lit a good fire and leave enough wood to keep the fire going. It is a shame the hotel did not have a swimming pool as we thought to have read on the website. The breakfast was of high quality but we would have enjoyed to see a bit more variety on the products that were offered.
Friendly staff. Peaceful, relaxed atmosphere. No complaints
Very good hotel and nice location near the central square. Traditionally decorated and very nice environment. Rich Breakfast. It looks like a 4 star hotel and not a 3 star The family room is on -2 level and unfortunately there is no lift. This is a problem if you have heavy luggage as you have to use stairs.
Nice location, clean hotel, good value for money none
good food, nice rooms, grate view
Very nice location. most rooms have great vieuws. Kind and helpfull staff. Good breakfast.
evrerything nice! great view from the window!!! far away from volos.
Loved the view over Volos city, the Makrinitsa village and pagasitiokos gulf. Amazing bar-restaurant "The Veranda" with breathtaking view. Fantastic breakfast with big variety and amazing view from breakfast area when the weather is good. The rates of restaurant.
the proximity to the village of Makrinitsa. no greek beer available, hehe !
Great experience to be here! The wonderfully authentic village, the staff, the view from the adjacent terrace, the swimming pool, the spacious corridors and stylish rooms. Super value for money
the hotel is 20 minits from the town center we took bus
I have to say that the 4 star rating this hotel has is no-where near what it deserves, 5star + for the staff, managment .I stayed one night in Xenia Palace and The staff are all very frendly and always smiling and helpful. . Great service , waiters brilliant - maid service excellent to detail.Overall Palace by name and nature-a fabulus brake- great service and food.
A nice hotel located in a very scenic area. Very good breakfast selection.
The view from the hotel room as well as form the restaurant towards the city of Volos and towards the sea is magnificent. Inadequate noise insulation in between the rooms (you can hear people staying in adjucent rooms even when thy are just speaking !)
Very good service
The nice view, tha spa facilities and the cleanness of both the indoor and outdoor areas.
The hotel is in a wonderful location overlooking the magnificent gulf of Volos. The hotel has a great terrace where they serve breakfast. The breakfast is excellent with large variety of food. Portaria Village is just five minute walk. Great place to visit the peaceful Pelion mountain. The rooms are high standard and stillish.
Clean rooms, very good breakfast, nice view from the balcony
Nice location, good service, friendly staff.
Welcoming staff, excellent location and view.
Very hospitable. English speaker only on the second day.
the staf he is truly much kind one
Very friendly staff who treated us like living with family members. They gave as all the information we needed about Pilio area. Clean rooms.Nice breakfast. Nice scenary. Bathrooms OK and clean but definitely need renovation
It was very pleasant and familiar. There's no parking place.
Very friendly staff.
The rooms, staff hospitality and the location of the hotel
Beautiful complex, clean and spacious rooms, tasty breakfast with a lot of options to choose from... I guess we could use a bigger bed...
Splendid hotel - kind people - beautiful swimming pool.
The magical mountains and view from the village.
The natural friendliness of the staff. Very warm welcome, excellent food of the region, and very helpful advice.
it was just on the way
Simple, clean and practical room which offers everything you need.The restaurant in the hotel lounge is very handy and the food was perfect with a lot of choices and very reasonable prices. The location of the hotel couldn't be closer to the skicenter.Even easy to walk. No suggestions.
Great view. Nice people. pour sound insulation
Very warm people and clean facilities. Very good spot in Pelio. Breakfast of poor quality and little variety. Bathroom needed renovation.
Cleanliness of your room
the attic suit with all its comforts and the beauty of phlio
Excellent, spacious room with tremendous view. Highly recommended. The matrix was too soft for me and hurt my back. But this is just a personal preference.
That we lived practically in the middle of woods, beautiful swimming pool, wondreful tennis courts overlooking the sea, very kind and helpful staff, we felt as a part of their community.
Excellent position with amazing view, beautiful room, very kind and friendly stuff, superb spa and restaurant (the best food we had in Pillio). We want to say a big thanks to the manager for the superb accommodation we had.
The room was tight and comfortable, the staff very kind and helpful, at an amazing location! Unfortunately Spa was booked
Very peaceful location with staff prepared to help when asked. Nice and quiet, even for the busiest time of the year. Somewhat disorganised for the price and subsequent organisation expected.
The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated, ideal for a long stay. Great bathrooms also. The hotel itself is amazing and at a good location for mountain hikes, walks, etc. Nice outdoor pool for summer. Excellent Service. The variety of the breakfast could improve, given the price of the hotel. There are views but the layout of the rooms does not allow you to enjoy them much.
Pleasantly surprised by the excellent location, service, food exceptionally good, excellent place for both business and private and very helpful and friendly personnel. Many thanks to the manager Leonidas for being as sweet as the bonbons with the same name.
First of all, the director of the hotel was extremely helpful in all aspects. He provided us with better information about the local environment than the local tourist information center. The hotel fits perfectly into the structure of the whole area with many isolated houses. The rooms are really luxurious and fit the description of the hotel. The hotel offers a good tennis court and even provided us with rackets and balls, a pool and a spa. However, due to our limited time, we did not use the latter and cannot report on the quality. The breakfast and the dinner were excellent. The environment offers opportunities to swim in the ocean (about 6-8 km) and hiking at various locations. The staff was very friendly. Everything in the hotel was very good for us.
Friendly staff, nice breakfast, convenient location, spacious rooms, good price
Great service by everyone.
Clean room with good accessories. Buffet breakfast nice service (hot serve omelet) Door lock system is difficult to open.
- view, - kind staff, -breakfast - no shower door, the bathroom was like a pool...... -bugs in the actual pool....... - specifically requested double and not twin bed. We got a twin!
The hotel has very nice and has polite staff, rooms were cleaned every day. The wiev from the hotel to Volos was superb. The pool was nice and suitable for little children as well. Hotel has thought about kids as well, there were a nice playground and also drawing faclities in the reception lobby. The path from Portaria "centre" was going upwords quite steep but if you won't let it disturb you, I can warmly recommend the hotel also for families.
the staff was strugling to provide us with their best service in a proffesional manner. The rooms were much more spacious than expected with everything in place. breakfast was average
Hotel was very new. Rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. Breakfast was fine I could not pay with a visa so i had to have cash but this is common for this area.
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.
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.
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.
