    Hotel Sofia is located just a few minutes’ walk from the beach. There is no parking directly at the hotel, but you unload your car right in front, and the hotel gives you a voucher for parking a few minute’s walk up the road. Check-in was quick and easy. There is no elevator, so a room upstairs means carrying bags up the steps. We had a room for 4. The front room had a double bed and the bathroom. The second room, divided by a door, had a bunk bed for the kids and a kitchenette, with a fridge/freezer. It included some pots and pans. The room and bathroom were clean. The back porch had a drying rack for our wet swimsuits. The A/C was only in the front room, so the door between rooms needed to be left open so the kids received cool air. But the unit was plenty strong to cool both rooms. The wifi was FAST. The hotel provided towels for us to use on the beach. They had some mats to lay on the sand and a water air mattress to use as well. We enjoyed the ambiance of this hotel and would gladly recommend this location to anyone traveling to Matala.

    We enjoyed this hotel. No complaints.

    Location is great, right in centre of Matala. Breakfast was ok. It was also free based on the facts below. Since we last stayed there 5 years ago the room, coincidentally we had the same room and the best (no.9), they have refurbished and redecorated. The room was therefore light and bright with a spacious bathroom/shower and a better more comfortable bed and pillows. Iorgos and his mother were friendly.

    when we arrived to check in we were informed that he (Iorgos) had double booked the room having got our dates wrong. He booked us into the hotel opposite for one night. This was quite shabby and unpleasant. He offered us free breakfasts for our stay as a recommpence.
