“Great stay in ios”
Reviewed 19 July 2012

Basic hotel in the upper part of ios. Rooms are 2 person and are cool, comfortable and well serviced. short walk into town, where the shops/restaurants/bars are. About 15-20 min to the main beach. The walk there and back was fine for us, but it is a step up/down hill.

Prices are very reasonable and the rooms are cleaned everyday. The owner, Pavlos is a great guy, made the stay for us. He will go out of his way to help you out, take you to the restaurants or even just sit and have tea with you.

The hotel worked well for a group of friends, families may want larger rooms.

Windmill Rooms is a great place to stay! It is the perfect location, as it is a little out of the way, so that it's surroundings are quiet, but only 5 minutes from all pubs and clubs and restaurants. It's a 15 minute walk to the beach along a a road with beautiful scenic views. The rooms are very comfortable; spacious and clean. The owner, Pavlos, is very friendly. He is always there and happy to help you with all your needs. He spoke to everyone as if they were his friend, I can't imagine how someone could not love this place! I would definitely recommend!

Fantastic location - two minutes walk into the village and 15 minutes walk to the beach. Pavlos could not have been any more helpful and was able to recommend great places to eat.

Ive been at Pavlos' place in Ios. The room is very confortable and very well located.
The owner (Pavlos) and his sister are very lovely people.
You really feel like you are at home.
It is a 100% recommendable.
If you go to Ios, stay at Pavlos place!!

Perfect location in Chora, Ios for restaurants, bars and clubs. Only a short bus journey or walk to the beach and also to the port. Absolutely spotless. The owner, Pavlos is also a great guy, very friendly and helpful. He has some great football banter and many other stories. The hotel has everything you need for a stay in Ios. Would definitely recommend the place to anyone, and I am very keen to go back myself.

Having just recently stayed in The Windmills hotel I can safely say it is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are spacious, each have a en suite bathroom, great air con, tv, a fridge- pretty much everything you could need in IOS. It is located pretty much in the center of Chora Village, everything is walking distance and no restaurant/supermarket/club/bar/shop is longer than a 10minute walk. The largest beach on the island is also only a 15minute walk!! Not to mention the owner Pavlos- who is amazing!! If you need anything, be it a restaurant recommendation , advice about other greek islands, different beaches on the island or even just someone to have a chat with Pavlos is there for his guests at all times. Windmills was our little home for 10 days and we were so sad to leave not only Ios but Windmills too!

My girlfriend and i stayed here. wow what a great location. 200 meters from the first few pubs and clubs. 2 mins walk if that.

the rooms were so clean and tidy, cleaned and checked every day. it is a small hotel and a great place to meet people. some people have come back there a few times. i know we will.

Then there is Pavlos, the owner. Wow what a guy and this guy is the man. He is a local master who can point you to anything, from good food and drink, to tips on how to enjoy Ios at its best.

He help my girlfriend and I out with everything. Our first bar to have a drink, then helping us find work for the summer, a home to live in and so much more. All the things on the internet about him are true. If you get to Ios and need a great family type of place to stay or even some help come see pavlos at The windmills room. Seriously we have travelled Europe for 4 months and not meet a man like pavlos.

Room Tip: all the rooms a exellent, we stayed to two differant rooms they were as good as eachother.
