“Amazing Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2013

I don't regularly take the time to review places I've stayed, but I felt especially compelled to do so for Brother's Hotel. I have never been to a hotel with more hospitable hosts. From the moment we arrived until we departed, Nicki and Lisa were there to answer any and every question. From restaurants, to transportation, to secluded beaches, they truly know Ios and will share their knowledge with you. I could not recommend a better place to stay based on this alone. They truly make you feel like you are on vacation.

We had 5 days on IOS, wish it had been more, but we will be back. The main reason was this wonderful place and the wonderful owners. The hotel is spacious, clean and has everything you need. The location is great (away from the hassle but close enough to get there when you want quickly), the pool is great, breakfast is a delight. The overriding plus is Nicki and Lisa and their attitude, they seem genuinely concerned to make sure that you have a good time and will do all in their power to make it so, most importantly they aren't out just to maker a buck out of you. There are no hidden extras except the comfort and relaxation that seems to accompany the hotel. We have been going to the Greek Islands since 1982 and this is by far the nicest place we have stayed in.

Stayed in Brother's hotel for a week last year, and I couldn't recommend it more highly! From the minute we arrived at the port, Nicki and Lisa couldn't have made us feel more welcome. We were collected from the ferry and within an hour of being there we had been given a full run-down on the best beaches, bars and restaurants. The hotel is beautiful with a fab pool, immaculate rooms and fantastic service. The hotel is situated in a quiet location, about a 15 minute uphill walk from the main centre of Chora. But if uphill walking is an issue, there are buses that run every 20minutes or so from just around the corner! Ios itself is a beautiful island, with brilliant nightlife but without the tacky-ness of other popular European holiday destinations. Can't wait to come back for another stay at Brothers!!

Brothers hotel is a great place to stay in Ios. I cant recommend this place enough. Fab service, great pool and its in a quiet location for Ios. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful and happy for a chat. The beach is also just a short walk down the road. We had an excellent couple.of days in Ios thanks to brothers. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at Brothers.

We stayed at the Brothers Hotel as part of an island hopping holiday.
Nikiforos & Lisa are wonderful hosts, we had a lift to & from the port, a continental breakfast, advice on where to visit & recommendations for the best Tavernas on Ios. Nothing was too much trouble, they even helped us plan the rest of our trip, advising islands and places to visit and by getting the ferry timetables for us.
Brothers Hotel is perfect, has everything you need and more, the pool area is lovely and the garden is beautiful & which ever room you have there is a stunning view. The hotel is within walking distance of the pretty port and village of Ios.
We met several guests there who were repeat visitors and it is easy to understand why, I have been a regular visit to the Greek Islands over the last 25 years & I know I won't find a better place to stay.

We booked to stay at Brothers Hotel in Ios after a friend highly recommended it to us, telling us she would go back there in heartbeat! So we expected to have a pretty good holiday in a comfortable hotel. Turned out we had a truly magical holiday in an exceptional hotel !! The magic of Brothers family run Hotel is Nicki & Lisa and Nicos, who all extended an amazing and unique level of hospitality that ensured we had the best possible holiday experience on Ios. They provided us with a warm welcome, excellent restaurant recommendations, transport hire & taxi info, ferry times & costs to other islands, advice about where to visit - including beaches, museums, walks and places of interest. They collected & drove us to and from the port, supplied us with beach towels, umbrellas and extremely impressive club sandwiches! We stayed in the apartment with its own private balcony overlooking the pool, which was perfect. All the staff were friendly and the hotel is immaculately clean. The pool is edged by fig trees, rambling grapevines and a lovely garden with giant sunflowers. In the evening the unforgettable aroma of jasmine prevails. Set in a quiet area, within easy access of Ormos (the Port town) and Chora, and with a backdrop of dramatic mountains on either side, Brothers hotel is truly ‘a gem in the Cyclades!’ The most exceptional aspect being the people who run it! Would we go back? In a heartbeat!

We stayed at the Brothers Hotel in Ios, and couldn't have been happier with our choice. We picked the hotel based on other trip advisor reviews, location and price as we are on a relatively tight budget. Everything was as expected and better. The rooms where clean, comfortable, and well equipped except for the lack of a kettle. The hotel was lovely, simple and clean with a beautiful pool and surrounding area, with a lovely little garden that was tended to daily. Nikko the owner and his wife were lovely, picking us up and dropping us off at the port for our ferries, offering lifts into town and making great restaurant recommendations. Ios is lovely, my favourite of the islands, with the old port, beaches and main town within 15-20mins walking distance. Sousannas taverna, a recommendation from our hotel, makes a fantastic moussaka!!! I wish I had spent more time in Ios and would definitely return to the Brothers hotel.
