“Strict but good”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

good place to stay. Picked up from the port and brought to the hotel by staff who were very friendly until the end when they demanded more money.
They charged extra at the end for the 3rd person who had been staying with us, despite me requesting it, to their approval, before travelling.
Security is strict. no loud music after 11pm.

About 5 mins walk to the main town and bus stop. Great location for getting to and from the bars in town. If you want to go down to the beach it's just a short bus ride away.

We had a spacious triple room, bathroom was also large and clean. The pool was lovely and the views are amazing. Breakfast was very generous and the staff were very friendly.

I had a great time here along with two friends. We got picked up at the port and we drove to the hotel. It took a few minutes, but on the way we got a quick sight seeing by the great guy who runs the hotel.
The hotel is VERY central to the beach and village, though very quiet and relaxing with a super pool area. We stayed for four days and everything was perfect and fresh. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful and lovely. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

You can get transfers from the ferry, it's walking distance to the main clubbing area and the food/drinks by the bar were an added bonus (and quite cheap).
Avanti weren't too welcoming, but the pool definitely made up for it! Having said that, I did book a single room and decided to room with a friend when we arrived - the hotel only charged me 8 Euro for cancelling, which was great! Also after we checked out we had quite a wait for our next ferry and the hotel let us continue to use the pool area :) We booked a non-smoking room but the room stunk of cigarettes and we found butts on our floor.

Room Tip: All rooms are quite close together, but only a few have a balcony over the pool (which have the best...

Located just two minutes away from the village(main city on Ios) and still quiet and peaceful. The service was great and Thomas and his wife(owners) could help with everything from where to eat to driving us to the port so we could take the ferry. If you are youngster looking for a hotel to stay at on a booze-filt vacation, then this is not it. The pool was clean, and so was the room. The only two things I really can complain about must be the small TV and that it sometimes was too quiet. But then again: you're not on vacation to watch TV

This small family run hotel in my opinion is the best place to stay in Ios. The hotel is located up in the village but on the quiet side of town. The hotel is located up at the top of a small hill so the views are stunning.
The rooms (we had rooms 7 and 8), both overlooked the beautiful swimming pool area. They were a decent size with air con, TV, safe box, fridge, en suite bathroom. We spent 5 nights here and we had clean towels every day and the bed sheets were changed every other day. The standard of cleanliness of the hotel was spotless. The lady who did the cleaning worked constantly and it showed.
The pool area is lovely with sunbeds, tables and chairs around it and the water was reasonably warm.
The owners of this hotel were amazing...very friendly and helpful. We left Ios and moved onto Santorini and they phoned ahead to a friend of theirs who owned a hotel there and got us a good rate.
We paid 30 euros a night for a double room......bargain price for a bit of luxury.
The hotle is 5 minutes walk from the village centre with all the bars and restaurants you could need.

Wonderful!!!!
