“Fabulous hotel, amazing pool and wonderful owners”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

Nicky (a guy) and Lisa really make this place special. They are genuinely lovely people.

We were met by Nicky at the port and taken the short drive to Brothers Hotel. We were offered complimentary drinks on arrival and an introduction to the area. Nicky highlighted the best restaurants and beaches for us and found out the bus times for us to get there.

Our room was on the ground floor with a double bed for us and a small comfortable sofa bed for our 3 year old daughter. The room was simply decorated, with good storage, it was also very clean.

The pool is lovely, with a small paddling area for kids at one end and a graduated depth down to the deep end. It looks fantastic lit up at night as well. There are ample sunbeds and parasols around the pool.

Breakfast ranged from 3E for a fruit platter or toast to 7E for a fully cooked English

Nicky recommmend some restaurants to us, Octopus tree was a highlight as was Lord Byron in Ios town - the portions are massive as reflected in the prices.

Manganari beach was amazing, with a gentle slope out to sea and a soft sandy bottom great for kids

Our stay was perfect, the hotel has great facilities, amazing service from the owners.
If I had to say one thing, if the bathroom and room were a little better decorated the hotel would be able to charge more.

Book it - you'll love it

A beautiful place to stay. The rooms are fantastic. Clean and comfortable. The pool is absolutely gorgeous. It's a short walk to the port beach and to the port where there are numerous good value good food restraunts. My favourite is the octopus tree. Brothers hotel is a beautiful place to stay. Quiet and relaxing

Very clean, good size comfortable rooms, and very friendly and helpful owners. Little off the main road, but easy to get places. Send an email a couple days before your arrival and Nikki will meet you at the ferry.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

Brothers Hotel is close to a beach and to the port, where life is quite and still genuine Greek. It is located in a quite area and there are no noises: at night there is perfect silence.Rooms are large and very very clean.When I travel I do not pretend a five stars hotel,I prefer the warm hospitality of a family.In Brothes Hotel I felt part of a family from the first minute.Nicki is that kind of person who does more than his best for your satisfaction.He gave me all the instructions I needed for a nice genuine staying in Ios: how to get to desert beaches, places from where enjoi the sunset, each taverna with its specialities (there for moussaka, there for grilled meat,there for genuine greek food, there for fish and mezedes...). People as Nicki and his family are the reason why I spent my holidays in Greece in the last 20 years.Thank you Nicki.

brothers hotel is a real gem - located near the beach, but still secluded enough to avoid the hustle and bustle - with all amenities (breakfast is delicious! the a/c is silent!) and a lovely large swimming pool! i'd stay there over and over again! the price is right the owners and staff are so friendly and help you with your every need. great place to stay! i highly recommend it!

I can't recommend Brothers Hotel enough. As per all previous reviews, Nicki and Lisa make you feel like part of the family and cannot do enough for you. We were picked up at the port and given a welcome drink whilst Lisa sat for ages talking us through the local area, giving us tips of where to go etc. We were helped with everything from changing accommodation to car hire. Food was also great quality and value and the whole hotel and pool area are immaculate. We were island hopping and managed to stay an extra couple of days here before we had to move on somewhere else - however, we loved Ios and Brothers Hotel so much that we came back after two days. It's that good! We also met lots of other lovely people from all over the world here and will definitely be back. I would also recommend that you try Baywatch Beach Bar on Gialos Beach and The Octopus Tree in the harbour for fish. Hope to see you soon Nicki and family!
