We stayed at Pension Sofia for a few days and my mother and one year old daughter were there for a week. The rooms were small but very clean and cute, decorated nicely and had all the amenities. Sofia was great about making sure we had hot water and kettle for making baby bottles and washing, anything we needed she provided. Sofia and Emmanuel were so helpful and kind to my mum and the baby, helping her with the baby stroller and made her feel like family. The wifi didn't work too well in the rooms, but it worked on the balcony and there is also a computer in the front lobby that is available and usually free. The garden everyone talks about is just as beautiful as we read, probably even more so! They also had so many animals - dog with puppies, cat with kittens, bunnies, turtles, a bird - the best play spot for a one year old we could have asked for! They even have a baby swing in this gorgeous setting. You can take breakfast anywhere at the tables scattered throughout the garden. It is only a short 2 block walk down the alley to the main street along the waterfront, and not a steep or difficult walk. Yet the hotel is out of the hustle and bustle of town and feels truly like a sanctuary. We couldn't have asked for a nicer spot, definitely recommend it!!!

We had a fabulous stay at Pension Sofia in June. The inn was clean and bright. Our room was spacious and had a great balcony that almost doubled our floorspace. The location is very good - easy walking distance to the town and close to the beach. The only drawback is that it's not directly on the beach and water views are across rooftops. We were picked up at the ferry terminal and driven the few blocks to the pension which was a really friendly way to start our visit. We rented a car and used the free parking provided. The car rental was really terrific for seeing more of Paros and not being confined to the schedules of public transportation. We loved driving along and stopping at whatever beach or taverna struck our fancy. We didn't have full breakfasts at the hotel but I did have a cappuccino every morning, and sitting on the terrace in the morning with coffee, perfect weather, and a gentle breeze is one of my favorite memories of the trip. I'd highly recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking for good value in a very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable friendly accommodation. The only thing that didn't work quite as we would have liked was the internet. The wireless is limited to a few areas outside, has spotty coverage and seems to be dependent on the weather and time of day.

the owners, manolis and Sofia were very accommodating , we were collected to and from the port. If you are looking for clean, decent rooms set in a beautiful garden area, then you must stay here. Excellent value for money.

Absolutely beautiful hotel. Conveniently located close to the port, but far enough away that is quiet. Beautiful gardens, and it is very nice to sit out on the balcony enjoying some wine.

The owner is very friendly and helpful, picks you up from the port and shows you some of the things in the town on the way. Not luxurious accommodations by any means, but everything is very clean and the property is pretty and very well-kept. Would definitely stay here again if we ever returned.

Best value in Greece.
Nothing there is luxurious (including the location) but if you´re looking for fair price AND a special place, Sofia Pension is a great option in Paros. When you arrive at the pension, you´ll notice the area around it is not impressive at all, but the place has a gorgeous little garden, in which you can sit and enjoy the wonderful Greek breakfast. Paros is great, Parikia is a fantastic area, The owners are incredibly nice and the rooms are extremely clean and tidy. For 75 euros a night in the high season, you can´t get better than this.

The only thing more beautiful than the Pension and gardens are the owners Sofia and Manuel. We loved our stay and of course did not want to leave. The whole property is beautifully kept with gardens full of olive trees, hammocks and flowers.
It is perfectly located walking distance to central town.
Sofia Pension was a perfect stay in a beautiful town.
Thank you Sofia and Manuel you are amazing and wonderful!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed 2 nights and were very happy with service and have no complaints about anything. Manilos collected us from the airport, the room was quiet and clean with a lovely outlook over the garden. Breakfast was delicious - freshly squeezed orange juice, plunger coffee, 3 different home made cakes, 2 types of rustic breads, eggs, etc. all eaten outside in our own bougainvillea covered gazebo. Nothing was too much trouble for Sofia and her family. Location was great, just back from the beach and not too far from the port. We would definitely stay there again.
