I am sad to admit that staying there was the only bad memory of our holiday. 6 days in the pension and we never had our towels and sheets changed. The room was not clean when we arrived although Sofia was...

Pension Sofia was such a find. Set in the most beautiful and quiet little street, the rooms were amazing. Immaculately clean, well appointed rooms, well equipped kitchen and the most gorgeous balcony with tables and chairs, overlooking the countryside. The family hosts are friendly and helpful and also run a car hire place at the harbour where you can leave...

Just 3 minutes away from the harbour and restaurants, Pension Sofia is ideally located. Away from noise, slightly above Katapola, the breeze will give you cool and quiet nights! No luxury here, a simple but clean and cute greek pension!

We spent beautiful ten days in this apartment, overlooking the bay of Katapola and watching the big boats arriving and leading the small port. Absolutely quiet, just interrupted by fighting cats or awakening roosters. The owner of the apartment, Lefteris, owns also a car-rental with best prices and good quality of the cars.

Nice location in Katapola at 2 min from the harbour walking distance. Balcony with view on the pier fairly appreciated. Small studio, but enough for 4-5 nights. We paid 225 euros for 2 people/5 nights, studio with one big bed + a smaller one, with balcony. The good points during our stay were: - Sofia's mum welcomed us at 3:30...

We had the most amazing stay at Pension Sofia. The room was basic, but clean, but the best was the lovely, spacious balcony from where you can watch the whole harbour and beautiful sunsets. You can grow old sitting on this balcony! It is a short walk from the port, down the most beautiful cobbled walkway.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ιn Katapola the central port of Amorgos located the Sofia's House. Away from the hustle and bustle, and yet so close, just 150 meters from the port. The Sofia's House has built carefully by stones, with love and respect to traditional architecture that take us in years past. The Sofia's House has 2 fully equipped apartments with balcony and spectacular sea views. It also has a 100sqm house with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen and a living room and veranda. The Sofia's House is ideal for large groups and families. ... more   less
