Hermes hotel was perfectly located between the town square and the beach, with an amazing pool and bar overlooking the ocean. Rooms were air conditioned and cleaned daily. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming!

My fiancee and I stayed there in August 2013. It was brilliant. Great location, right in between the beach and the town.
The views are worth the room rate alone.
Great staff, very friendly and welcoming. Free transfer to and from the port.
Room rates are excellent (we even got upgraded which I can't complain about at all)
Drink prices at the poolside be are very affordable with nightly happy hour discounts.
The staff organise pub crawls and BBQ nights also.
We met alot of friendly people and can't wrap this hotel enough. The only thing we did encounter which we weren't to happy with was the cleaner letting herself in to our room even though we said we were still sleeping. Other than that, it was a great stay..

Hermes is fantastic and one the best hotels on the island great price, great location, great rooms, great service, great food, and one of the best swimming pool bars in ios and the view is amazing. Hermes is located perfectly between the main village and the main beach it is perfect for couples looking to relax or for a group of mates looking for fun. Hermes is a family run hotel and Niko is a legend who will look after all of your needs.

I have stayed there 3 times now and would never stay anywhere else.

Stayed here for a week with a friend visiting from Germany, rooms are incredible, clean, ocean view and very very quiet which is nice after a long day of diving and being in the sun. Niko the owner is incredibly friendly and out going not to mention very laid back. The water was always hot, aircon and heating worked well and the beds are super comfy. Would easily recommend hermes to any one wanting the perfect stay in accomodation in Ios. definitely the place to be to unwind.

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
