This charming, higgledy-piggledy little pension is right on the broad, tree-lined quayside of Skopelos's pretty main village. The building is more than 120 years old, and was converted into a hotel in 1983. All the rooms are slightly different in shape and size, but all are plainly furnished, with varnished pine floors and ceilings and whitewashed walls. Most windows overlook the bay and the port where ferries and hydrofoils dock - only a minute's walk away, making Kir Sotos one of the most convenient places to stay on Skopelos. There is a small paved courtyard, surrounded by high stone walls, and a roof terrace where you can sit, eat and drink.
Service is minimal, and limited to room cleaning, dishwashing and reception (not staffed round the clock). The idea is that you prepare your own breakfast, without the drudgery of washing up afterwards. There is a basic kitchen with cooking rings, a refrigerator and a dishwasher. In this respect, Kir Sotos feels more like your own rented home than a typical pension, and it is also extremely good value for money. The only possible snag is that there are no beaches within easy walking distance, so it is not ideal for families with smaller children. To balance that, the many restaurants and cafes of this attractive, old-fashioned island village are right on your doorstep.
