    The location is just perfect.. just some steps away from the city center and beach. The house and rooms are nice and they also offer a big menu for breakfast to choose off. Recommendable :)

    Sometime the owner seems to be a bit demotivated and fake friendly.

    Top floor balcony was spacious ,private and open with some views of the cliffs and sea with built in sun shelter. We did enjoy sitting there at different tomes of the day. BUT see below. Bought breakfast elsewhere.

    Room overpriced. Balcony unattractive jerry built appearance that had some dangerous features eg shards of unprotected broken drain pipes , metal rods and concrete covered pipes protruding from floor. Wife joked that we had arrived on the set of a lost OFAH episode where Trotters had conned someone that they were expert balcony builders. Soon after arrival man asked if I was paying cash(reflects other reviews of property) Hope the Greek taxman reads this. Actual room not too bad but not to standard expected for price. Rooms on floors below (cheaper) seemed to have balconies with no views , close to other buildings or overgrown trees.

    Having been to Matala several times over the years, a convenient location is always desirable, and Hotel Sofia IS certainly that. The owner(s) and staff are pleasant, and the nearby (included) parking arrangement is a HUGE PLUS, for sure! These are obviously favorable considerations.

    With that said, my windowless room on the first floor was just a basic room, pretty much devoid of charm. One could see where shortcuts/concessions were made regarding storage. Personally, I am NOT a fan of shower curtains, so when this IS the case and the shower space/basin is one square meter, it is seriously inconvenient. Also, the sprayer head was cracked (and obviously had been for a very long time based on the mineral deposits)...but never replaced. I said nothing.

    Having the entire roof as a terrace was fab and would book again based on the view alone Location is just perfect Parking very close and included in price Apartment very private

    No tea or coffee even though there was a kettle No courtesy water in the fridge No beach towels Surly staff as previous reviewers have mentioned
