Hotel Poseidon
Ranked #29 of 42 Hotels in Ios
Reviewed 19 September 2011

Myself and my husband stayed in this hotel in September for 6 nights and we were very happy with it. The location is excellent, right by the Port so its very easy to get to from the boat, just a few minutes walk. The view from our terrace was very nice overlooking the Port and sea.Its also beside the bus stops that go all over the island. There are plenty of restaurants around the Port which are all very good. The one at the bottom of the steps to the hotel, Enigma was very good and there was always a buzz there with people coming from their nearby yachts to dine. The Nest restaurant in Ios town was also excellent with reasonable prices. Yes there are lots of steps to the hotel but after a day or two you dont really notice. The staff were very nice and the rooms were spotless and cleaned every day with fresh towels and sheets. The nearby beach Yialos is great and only a couple of minutes walk away from hotel. The breakfast was very good (the same as you get all over Greece). The pool and pool bar was great. I would definitely recommend this hotel for the price, cleanliness and location.

This hotel is located at the port of Ios, which means that you have to take the bus or a taxi to Chora. The swimming pool was nice. There is a market and a bakery nearby. The problem with the many steps does exist. The rooms are clean and the view to the sea very nice. The breakfast served on the terasse was adequate.

Cute, clean and central! There's an awesome bakery in the main street. We hired a car for the day and explored the beautiful picturesque island. The island is clean and pleasant. My hubby and I were able to wind down and relax as we weren't surrounded by tourists.
Overall the hotel is clean, basic and functional.

My wife and I stayed here for four days in May 2010, a little before the beginning of the "season", and so had the hotel very much to ourselves. Mrs Volekakis, the owner, was kindness itself and was always concerned about or wellbeing, although her English is limited. She provided us with a tasty breakfast each morning, served on the terrace, as well as cleaning the room, looking after the hotel generally, and acting as receptionist.
The rooms in the hotel are quite small, although comfortable, and are supplemented by access to large terraces which overlook the port and provide views of the sea. It is very pleasant to sit at one of the tables and enjoy a simple meal purchased from the bakery or supermarket in the street below (the hotel is up a flight of about 50 steps from the street, which is a bit of a drag at first, but you get used to it). Rates are low and better than fair.
The hotel is in the port (Giallos), but on Ios the Hora or main village is connected to the port by steps, and is easily accessible if you wish to party at one of the many bars and restaurants located there. At night the port area is comparatively quiet and recommended for those who like to get an uninterrupted night's sleep.

We stayed for 5 nights with my husband, and we want to go again!
The room (44 has the best view -port and pool) was very clean, the a/c made the room as cold as we wanted it (very cold!) and the bed was very comfortable and clean (the matress was "Media Strom" on of the leading brands in Greece). We used the swimming pool it was clean, we also used the billiards and we had fun at the games room.
The only negative that someone can say about this hotel, is the stairs, although me and my husband (we are not fit at all and I have discopathy) we could manage it, it was about 50 stairs. People with more serious disabilities may have problem with all these stairs.
We used the bus and the taxi a lot, the bus stop is 2 minutes away from the hotel and the taxi is 3 minutes or you can ask for a card from a taxi driver and call him/her to pick you up from everywhere you want. Taxi fare to Chora is 5 euros and to Mylopotas is 8 euros. The bus costs 1,40 for Chora and Mylopotas and 3 euros for Maganari beach (22 km from the port).
The staff was very helpful, advising us for the best beaches/restaurants/places to see etc and actually they were right!!
If you want to book a nice clean room next to a great swimming pool and you don't mind walk a few stairs, it's the best option!

The hotel is situated in the port area and near to supermarket,bakery etc.The room was perfectly adequate and was in fact a lot more modern than many island hotels . Breakfast was a charming mix of fresh bread,jams,island cheese coffee etc.BUT!! the DREADED STEPS - did not count them but they were steep and probably numbered 60ish - they would be a problem to any one with suitcases or not very fit. The rates were good however to compensate for their problem.
