“BAD LOCATION”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

Nice familiar hotel, clean , but the location is very bad. And when I called for details the owner didnt say how far is was from the main street and the port.

The warm welcome and tranquil setting make arriving (and staying) at the Brothers a great holiday experience.Nicki,Lisa and family are very friendly (and professional) and the comfortable rooms are kept spotless by the daily cleaning.The pool area is great for relaxing and catching the Ios rays.The busy port area is a level seven minute walk through rural scenery (liked the donkey on the way) and there is a constant stream of buses to the main town Chora (5 minutes) or the numerous beaches.There was an amazing array of yachts in the harbour but this seemed to have little effect on the laid back atmosphere.You can actually swim and sunbathe at the port beach, which is okay, if feeling lazy.Other beaches such as Maganari or Mylopotas are as good as you`ll find anywhere in sothern Europe.Enjoyed the trip to Maganari on the orange boat from the port.Great scenery on the way and a fabulous beach (if a bit windy) on arrival.8 euros return.Tourists are made to feel welcome in the Cyclades and I can`t wait to go back.

Reviewed 18 August 2011

this is the first hotel where i'd have no hesitations recommending to anyone!
We were collected from the port by Nikki who from the start was extremely friendly and helpful. A short walk / quad journey from the port gets to the hotel (about 5-10mins walk). It's a perfect size, the rooms are lovely and Lisa is very helpful too!!

Nikki took a while to explain all parts of the island, tavernas and restaurants to try (and where to avoid).... all of his recommendations were spot-on. Highlights were Octopus Tree in the port and Lord Byron in Chora town.

€30 per day to hire a quad bike that is definitely worth while as you can see all of the island on a tank of fuel....

All in all, i cant recommend this highly enough!!! We were not after the all night clubbing side of Ios, so found this hotel to be perfect for our needs. Would definitely go back if in Ios again.

Thx, Laura and Steve

If you want to have a laidback holiday in Ios then I highly recommend staying here. Great for families and couples wanting to experience Greek hospitality at its best. However, if you're in Ios to party (as we wanted to do) I don't recommend it. It was far from town (by that I mean 5 mins by taxi) and had a very family-oriented feel to it.

Kudos to Nicky and Lisa for being so warm and friendly - especially Lisa for telling us every thing about Ios we needed to know. They even pick you up and drop you off to the Port!

The rooms were clean and well sized and the pool was really nice. The shower wasn't the best but overall happy with my stay here :)

Room Tip: Rooms closest to reception have better Wifi connection.

Nicky and Lisa bring us a lot of comfort, because someone had stolen ours mobiles, wallets, camera before in Athens. We could phone free of charge, to banks and operators.
Thanks a lot to us for welcom.
We recommand this hotel also for cleanliness of room and swimmingpool.
W'll come back next year

Friendly service in a clean tidy hotel away from the night time madness of the town centre. The hosts Niki & Lisa are welcoming and helpful and were always willing to go the extra mile. The pool area was beautiful and the local advice was spot on. Couldnt have been happier with our stay.

stayed there past two weeks and i can honestly say was the best place in ios had friends over there and they stayed in different places and i seen them wasnt half as nice as here. Loved nicki and lisa was crying leaving them went on a mad holiday to ios and it was a bit far out from the main squere but was only 5 in a taxi and it was worth it for service you got in Brothers. Im already missing Nicki and Lisa. Nicki was very helpful and gave us lifts. It was great place to stay and pool is stunning there so relaxing. Nicki and Lisa are great help when u arrive sits down for 20 mins with a map and asks if your going on a mad hol or site seeing and shows you every where to go. Miss it already and im just home. If you want a nice holiday in ios with great service this is the place to stay :)
