Hermes Hotel
Ranked #4 of 5 Hotels in Chora
Reviewed 26 September 2013

It is located a short walk from both the beach and the village which is perfect for when you head out at night and to the beach during the day. The pool bar at the hotel has a picturesque view of the ocean and the sunset from there is amazing. The owner Niko and all the staff are extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. They have a BBQ on Thursdays where a huge spread of food is put on. The pool bar has a great atmosphere and very affordable drinks and snacks. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. This really is the best hotel on the island, can't wait to go back.

Stayed at Hermes for 5 nights in early September with a few friends, and had a fantastic time. The staff at the hotel are so friendly and helpful, and the facilities are great - we spent a lot of time by the pool, which does great snacks and drinks, and the Thursday night BBQ is not to be missed! Would definitely visit again.

We went in low season but still what amazing value for money. Nick picked us up from the port in the schnaziest van out of everyone. He is lovely and super helpful even helped us organise accomodation for our next island. Rooms are spacious and clean. Pool with spectacular view. Cheap breakfast and snacks. Would recommend to all. Great location for walking to town and also to beach. This hotel really is the top of the lot!

Room Tip: Even double rooms have single beds but that is pretty much standard in Greece

Amazing, friendly and helpful staff - Nick especially picked us up from the port, showed us around town, gave us our bearings and offered us help. My bag was broken when we arrived and he offered to help, and arranged for another staff member to help us fix it.

PRIME LOCATION! perfect for easy access to town and beach on foot and amazing bar and pool on site which has the most spectacular views!!

My partner and I had the most enjoyable stay here, and truly say it enhanced our holiday experience in Ios - we plan to come back and stay here again!!!

I have been to Ios three times and all three times I have stayed at Hermes. The great thing about this hotel is that it has an amazing view of the island. The pool/bar is great to chill if you do not want to head to the beach (you find that during the day the pool has great atmosphere) the rooms are very clean and my experience with the Staff / owner have always been great. They are helpful and will always make sure that you have a pleasant stay. Nick 'the Greek' the owner as he is known is an absolute character, you will either love him or loath him. He is known by some as 'the King of Ios' as it is very rare that no one in the island know's who he is! .. Overall this Is a great hotel. However keep in mind that Ios is the 'poor mans' Mykonos, it's very cheap and if you are on a budget and between the ages of 18-24 who loves hanging around with Aussies, Irish and English then this is the place for you..Enjoy
