Khaankhre Sobekhotep II (transliteration: sbk-ḥtp, meaning: "Sobek is Pleased") was an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh of the 13th Dynasty during the Second Intermediate Period.

He is known from several monuments, including a statue, several Nile level records in Nubia and from building works at Madamud and Luxor. The Nile level records provide a year date 'four', showing that he reigned at least three years.

The Papyrus Boulaq 18, an administrative document of the Theban palace dates under this king and names the 'king's wife' Ay, the vizier Ankhu and other officials.
