“Princess sissy hotel and cheers bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, very reasonable pricing, amazing views, clean and well kept rooms, only three minutes walk from the main square and three minutes down to the local beach. Had a fantastic time here and would recommend for anyone. The restaurant and bar downstairs is cheap and delicious. You get a lot more then you paid for with an all round lovely experience. We will definitely this hotel again in the near future.

My second trip to Ios was 35 years after my first.
The recent stay at Princess Sissy was with my family of five. Princess Sissy is located in the best position halfway between The Port and Village. The rooms are clean and tidy, the atmosphere friendly and the staff very obliging.
The view of the Port from your balcony and the hotel roof top is great especially during sunset.
If you don't feel up to walking to the villiage for a drink or meal, the bar and menu at the Princess Sissy will suffice.
This family run hotel business is very relaxed, helpful and does not have an expensive tariff.
I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel and look forward to visiting Nicos and his staff again in the not too distant future.

I have stayed twice in the Princess Sissy and have found it great each time.

This is not necessarily a place for a romantic getaway; the rooms are basic but they're clean and comfortable. That said, if you get a room with a balcony, you could be treated to lovely views of the port and the blue Aegean. I have fond memories of making a big hole in a bottle of ouzo and waiting for the sun to come up here.

Air conditioning is extra, but you'll find that this is the case with most budget accommodation on the island and as far as I can see is a way of letting travellers on a tight budget save a little more beer money.

Nikos, the owner, has been great each time (be careful if you order mixed drinks in the bar - he sure knows how to pour!) and I've had a few funny nights in the little bar in his company.

This is a great little spot for good, cheap holiday accommodation near the port, the night spots and the bus stop for the beach. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Room Tip: The veranda/balcony rooms are great - ask for one of these.

If five star, romantic, candle-lit, coupley accommodation is what you are after, then this is not the place for you. If a clean hotel, with basic but functional rooms at a great price is, then you can't do better than the Sissy. I've been coming to IOS for years and always stay here. (Get an upstairs room with a beautiful view of the harbour). The owner Nikkos is great craic and always eager to help and make sure you are happy. Breakfast running til 1pm is a godsend, given the fact that on a usual IOS night one doesn't tend to hit the hat til dawn. Rooms are old and functional but cleaned every day. And the location (half-way up the donkey track) is pretty good as the port and town are five minutes walk away. The hotel usually attracts a young crowd who want a bit more than living in a stuffy cabin or tent and is priced accordingly.
Downsides for me would be the showers, whilst fine, are hand-helds and could do with a hands-free arrangement; plus, wi-fi is only available in the bar - would have preferred if I could get it in the room too.
All-in, a definite for the short-list, especially for those on a budget.

Great spot with super views over the port so just a short walk the port and beach. Also one can walk up the hill for 5 minutes to town where the bars and nightlife are to be found. This is not a luxury hotel by any means but the price:value equation is really good with albeit small but clean and quiet rooms. The owner (Nikos and his 'Manuel', George) is a great guy and treats all the guests as friends. Decent breakfast also available for only 5€ too!

Having travelled alot, I have stayed in some amazing and some atrocious places.. Princess sissy is definitely one of the amazing ones. Nikos and George the gentlemen who runs the place are incredible, they are ridiculously helpful and really capture the amazing Greek hospitality. The rooms are great for the price you have and all come with there own ensuit! It's a fun place to stay if you're looking to have some big nights out and it's full of like minded people. It looks over the port beach and is only a 5 minute wall from town! I will definitely be returning to ios and I couldn't think of a better place to stay! George will also pick you up and take you to your ferry

I would have preferred not to go to Ios at all if I knew what a S**t den Princess Sissy was. The plumbing constantly fails, the rooms are tiny, the beds are like sleeping on a concrete slab, BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, the management are rude, inconsiderate and irresponsible with your belongings. Do not trust them to mind any of your belongings in a safety deposit box as they are likely to get "lost".
Also the location is neither here nor there. It is a hike up to the town and a bus ride from the beach.

Room Tip: Do not stay here at all.
