“Most enjoyable stay !”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

Close to everything while remaining quiet. Very helpful and friendly owners. Everything was spick and span and appreciated the small details. Breakfast was good...All in all a most pleasant surprise and great value for money :)

I stayed here for 4 days in June. Very well situated Pension just a minutes walk to supermarket, restaurnats and shops. Good sized room, very clean with plenty of hot water and lovely soft clean towels every day. There are safe deposit boxes provided in the reception area ( no charge). Beautiful homemade breakfeast served on a lovely patio area with comfy couches and cushions. Katerina is a wonderful hostess and a really lovely lady. The moment you arrive Katerina sits you down and gives you information on the whole island and provides maps and any information you need. She is always on hand to anwser any queries/questions you might have. It is fantastic value for money and I would definitely stay here again. Very fond memories of Avra Pension.

Very well maintained pension in a quiet location. Port, busstop, restaurants, carefour at walking distance and if you like longer walks (1 hour) you can go to Chora by 3 different paths. Rooms decorated with Greek furniture. Good beds and shower. Fantastic breakfast with choices. The owner was very helpful in helping to solve our dispute with a ferry company. The only disadvantage is maybe the lack of a view, but we did not mind because we only use rooms to sleep. We will certainly go back to Avra next time we visit IOS.

Very very nice place!! Very close to the sea and to main village Chora. The owner is very kind and attentive. the room is clean, spaciuos and pretty with a little terrace. Breakfast is spectacular, fresh fruit, honey and jam,greek yoghurt, toasted bread, cakes, and a lot of kindness. Great base for touring the island with a quad or scooter (but quad is preferable).
Highly recommended for everyone. you will not regret

This was a one-night-stop before travelling further on our boattrip. We met a "mother-like" woman who was so kind to us and made a breakfest like it was home at her house. The rooms had nothing to complain about, just clean and fresh. It is close to the harbour, just 50 metres and that is a good reason to stay here!
