Staying at Melia Sol in Chios was an amazing experience. This studios hotel is conveniently located at a walkable distance to Karfas beach and short 15min drive to Chios capital. The place is gorgeous and very clean. The apartment where my family and I stayed had a lot to offer - beautifully put together interior, privacy and functionality, among other things. The extremely friendly and helpful host Ilenia was always there to answer our questions, give recommendations or deal with our requests with a big smile - the flaky Bougatsa she offered us for breakfast was to die for! She helped make our experience even more unforgettable. We cannot wait to spend more time in Melia Sol when we revisit Chios.
Ilenia's studios are beautiful, functional and super clean. The view from the studio was just perfect. We stayed here for 5 days. Ilenia took care of us the whole time with breakfast, laundry, guiding us what to visit, always there to help with a smiling face. We were with our 1 year old baby so it was perfect to have a kitchenette for a quick meal for the baby and Ilenia has also provided us with baby bed and highchair. We can't wait to go back!
I stayed with my wife for one week and it was a wonderful experience. The hotel is very clean, new, comfortable bed and with much attention to detail. The gardens, ocean views and proximity to the beach was great. Ilenia was the perfect host and always available. She deeply cares for the guest and the Island, and provided us with great recommendations for places to visit and restaurants. She used her connections to find us a rental car, since I was very late making the reservation during the busy season. We enjoyed the breakfast, the morning conversation and the fresh baked cookies. We are looking forward to returning soon.
This is a beautifully tranquil place that is run with love and attention. Ilenia and her family have created a modern oasis of flowers, trees and hammocks in which to relax and contemplate your next adventure on this stunning and historically rich island. Our family of 4 stayed here for three days and had a fabulous stay. The room was spacious, airy and spotlessly clean. The breakfast served every morning was fresh and delicious and it was a pleasure listening to Ilenia suggest amazing places to visit and experience. Every night we would make the short walk down to the beach and have our pick of wonderful restaurants to enjoy the daily fresh catch or local dishes while seeing/listening to the sea at our feet. We were sad to leave but would stay here again in a heartbeat!
Stayed at Melia Sol Art Studios for a week in early August and could not be happier with our choice. Super clean rooms, spacious, with good amenities to make our stay simple and relaxing. The lush green garden with its hammocks was also a nice touch. The host is super bubbly and friendly, always ready to assist you. She serves us coffee and home made biscuits each morning. All of her tips for beaches and restaurants were fantastic. Highly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to make Karfas their base while exploring Chios island.
