“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

I was in Ios with the group of 50 people from Serbia in summer 2013. As a representative of the group I may say the this place was very good for all of us, We were socializing every afternoon on the terraces and then we were going to Chora where we had very good fun with a lot of young people from entire world for ten days. The rooms were comfortable, clean, helpful staff and one more place which we liked a lot is the pool in the balcony, it was perfect to chill out there after Ios nights. After 10 days in Ios everyone is ready to go again. Kritikakis Village Hotel Apartments+Ios+good energy+ smiles from all over the world, the fun is guaranteed! :)

Me and my friends stayed in Kritikakis during last summer.
First of all, we were impressed by the rooms.Very big, clean, well-equipped and with a direct view to the sea. The location was excellent.Close to both the port and the city of Ios. 10 meters away from the hotel was a bus stop so even if you didn't have a car, you could transport and go to very nice beaches (f.e. Maganari,Tzamaria,Mulopotas).
Everyone in the hotel was very friendly.Especially the manager who provided us with useful advice-information. The service was excellent.Every day they changed us the towels and they cleaned our room.
To sum up, our stay in the hotel was more than pleasant.I recommend it to everyone. I will give no information about the island...You better go and check yourselves!!!

Excellent!!! You will feel the real charm of Cyclades here! Location is great, close to the port, restorants, supermarkets, only 5 minutes to the Village (Chora) by car. We really enjoyed our staying here. The owners are so kind and helpful, you can always ask for any kind of help! Everything very clean and so white blue :)
Thanks a lot for great accomodation and kindness!!! We had a great time!!!

before i came, i was so skeptical, i red so many reviews about this place.. but now, when i was there i can say, excellent!
my boyfriend and i were on Ios in July and spent 10 days in this beautiful village. Our room was number 41 and it had a wonderful view, it was comfortable, had small kitchen but provided with all the basic things you need. The room was clean, the staff was so nice, especially madam Svetlana :) Everything we asked they helped us. the manager of this place was also very pleasant and i really hope i'll visit this place again. Big hello from Serbia to all the staff and manager <3

We (me and my girlfriend) were in Kritikakis in July 2013. Highly recommend Ios and Kritikakis village!

Kritikakis village is near Port. But really near, maybe 5min walk. It is also 5min from the port beach (Yialos/Gialos) which is beautiful and completely satisfying even to spend all holidays there. But if you like to change beaches and don't want to take a reantacar (as two of us:)) there are several public buses from Port (5min form Kritikakis) or some of them stops in front of Kritikakis (buses for Chora-Mylopotas, Kuambara..). There is also a small beach Tzamaria (half way to Kuampara beach), nice for evening (having in mind it doesn't have sunbeds and sun umbrella) and you can even walk to there from Gialos (5min) or take a bus (1.6€ in one direction).
Prices of bus tickets:
- to Kuampara, Chore (Village, center), Mylopotas 1.6€ in one direction
- to Agia Thedoti, Psathi 2.5.€ in one direction
- to Manganari aprox. 3€ in one direction

If you are interested for visits to Chora or nightlife (which is mostly there) you have buses until 23-24h to there and back and if you want to walk you need to walk for aprox.15min on stairs that leads next to Kritikakis to Chora. It is not so easy :))) but I guess it is healthy walk :).

Hotel has a nice swimming pool, free wifi and we had free air condition :)

Rooms in Kritikakis are nice, big and comfortable (see pictures). We were couple and we got extra bed :)! Hot water and water in general is always provided and room service is daily which we appreciated. Our room had a small kitchen with basic things you need if you wanna cook in the room. In front of room is small terrace with sun umbrella and nice view, we liked it :) especially in the morning (shadow side in the morning) and sunset in the evening :))

Owner is Greek-American, communicative and friendly. Everything we asked they helped us or gave us advice and information we asked. When we complained about absence of room service one day they solved it quickly and room was cleaned when we came back. In general, great people and no any bad sides of owner and personnel!

So, in general, great place and be free to stay in this place!

Room Tip: Our personal favourites are rooms 40-41-42, on the top of Kritikakis village. They have wifi almost...

We are a family of 4 and I have to say that our room was more than comfortable, clean with excellent view and spacy! Considering the price, it exceeded more than what we expected - really! Kids didn't have just a small, tiny balcony to share but a whole terrace to play! Friendly personel, traditional decoration and only ten minutes walking away from everything - do you need more???

Room Tip: Just mention you are a family. They really understand what that means!!!

It was a staying that we all want to forget. Typical example of misleading pictures and description. It would be ok if it cost 20 Euro. Rusty tabs in the bathroom which was never renovated since the 80,s when the rooms were built. It was full of surprises when we got in our room. The room was big but very old. The cabinets were old, the bathroom was discusting the tv was not working, the toilet flush was so loud, the door was ready to fall apart the air condition couldn't work for long hours ... The owner built it a few decades ago and since then he never spend one Euro. On top of that was the location. All motorcycles, cars, and buses of the island were passing in front of the rooms. Noise was too much. UNforgetable.
