This is a family driven hotel, with excellent service and perfect location. It's located only two minutes walk from the beach, and 10-15 minutes from the city and nightlife. This is great, as the Ios nightlife can get a little noisy/crazy and the walk back home to the quiet area makes you appreciate the calmness :-) If I'm going to Ios again, I'll definitely stay here again.

A family hotel,nice,clean and peaceful because of it's location very close to the port of the island,not far from the village (5 minutes with the local bus).The best thing of all was the very short distance from the hotel to the sea (Yialos beach) which is a quiet zone.This is the place to which you can combine the quiet with the noisy and the nightlife...

Booked one night at Helena and then extended. Very nice and helpful hosts with great English. Location was perfect (quiet/100 mtrs from beach, short walk to tavernas and the village_ 10 mins).
Highly recommend the sunset at the churches on the hill above the village.
Also recommend walking the road west to some nice beaches _20 mins.
Also, the water sports place_3min walk is a great place to get windsurfing lessons or paddle board or tube ride.
Great hotel at a great location.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view. It was awesome.

The hotel is well located: close to the beach yet quiet. The family owned business is dedicated to customer service and makes one feel at home. The WiFi internet connection is exceptional. There is limited yet fully sufficient parking opportunity right on site. Adding in the sea-view room with balcony I had - pure bliss. Will stay there again next year!
