4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2009

Nick, the owner is a very kind person, always prepared to help you in any kind of matter. I can say the same for his wife, Lisa ( english woman ).
The hotel is calm and beautifull. It has a wonderfull swimming pool.
It is a little far from the city, Chora but with a 15 min walking to the port and 10 min by bus, you get there ( where things happens ).
If it's not important to be so closed to Chora, it is a good choice.

my positive experience of the hotel commenced well before i arrived as i had problems with a booking agency and nicki was quick and helpful with his e mails as i checked to see if he had received anything from them.once this was sorted,i booked through the hotels website which worked perfectly.nicki met me near the port and was kind enough to ask if the problems had been resolved,i thought this was a really nice touch .after i checked in,i was given lots of useful info and despite having visited ios several times previously, found out about paths,short cuts,beaches and tavernas which i didnt know existed. the rooms are really nice,tv with bbc world,good air con,fridge and roomy bathroom with nice shower which you can stand under which is not always the case in greece !!.views to sea and mountains also nice. free internet is available via a lap top in the reception area.breakfast is a very sociable affair to set you up for a hard day on the beach.swimming pool is a real bonus,plenty of loungers to relax on before and after your dip.location is pleasantly rural and quiet,about ten minutes stroll to the port area from where there are regular buses to the main village or beaches.
this is a really nice,exceptionally well run small hotel where the management and staff go to great lengths to ensure each guest gets the most from their stay. i am hoping to return next year and for a few more years after that

We had only intended to stay a couple of days on Ios during our island hopping tour in June 2008 but found Nicki & Lisa at Brothers Hotel so welcoming, and the rooms so comfortable, that we stayed for ten.
Even though our ferry was over an hour late Nicki (and daughter Chloe) were there at the port with the mini-bus to meet us.
Ios has a reputation as “The Party Island” so we were a bit worried it would be noisy at night but all we could hear, as we sat on our balcony having a nightcap, were sheep bells. Our room was modern and well finished with aircon, fridge, tv and a large balcony. Nicki and Lisa are always around for advice on how to get somewhere or find things.

It’s approx. a 10 minute walk into the port where there are good bars and restaurants. There is a bus service (about every half hour) from the port to and from the ‘Chora’ but if you are feeling fit there is a mule track, with a good Irish bar half way where you can rest before continuing your hike.
The beaches at Agios Theodotis and Manganari were our favourites and accessible by bus from the port, but they are quite a way (30 & 60mins) and don’t miss the bus back as there is only one per day. On the way you get great views across to Naxos, Iraklia, Keros & Amorgos and from the top of the 'Chora' there are views of Santorini and Sikinos.
We plan to return soon.

In my 60 years of traveling I can not recall a hotel, resort, or B&B that was more hospitable than the Brother's Hotel on the Island of Ios. Nick and his family know how to make their guests feel 'at home.' Within minutes of my arrival at the port, Nick picked me up in his van and drove me around town to orient me on the roads, shops, pathways, and beaches. When we arrived at his hotel I was shown a beautiful room with bath - A/C, TV, built-in closet with drawers, and a wonderful private balcony that overlooked the valley. The hotel was quiet, peaceful and only a short walk to the Port or Village. I relied on Nick's suggestions for meals, shopping, and recreation - he was never wrong! Their pool is a fantastic place to relax, talk with guests, or have a drink. The Hotel serve's a simple breakfast of coffee, tea, juice, and toasts served on the covered area overlooking the pool. I spent many hours there talking with Nick and his guests over breakfast - wonderful memories. The weather was not always perfect. One evening it was raining very heavy so Nick and his daughter took me into the port for dinner. How many hotels would give you that kind of personal care and attention? I loved visiting Ios, you will too, and plan to return. Look me up, I'll be at the Brother's Hotel!

We stayed at the Brothers Hotel in August 2008. We have been to many Greek islands and stayed in some great places, but I think that the Brothers Hotel is probably the friendliest place ever. Nikki, Lisa and the rest of the family were the perfect hosts.

Nikki will pick you up from the port if you let him have your arrival details. He will go through the island map with you and give you some tips and advice. Generally they will help you with anything.

The rooms are clean and have everything you need. Lisa organises breakfast until noon. The pool is just perfect.

Admittedly the Brothers is set back 10 minutes (easy) walk or so from the port, but we found this a plus point rather than a minus. It was totally peaceful during the day but you were near enough to the action if you wanted a night on the tiles. If you have not been to Ios before you will find the liveliest nightlife in Chora (up the hill). There are quite a few bars and restaurants in the port area which are great if you fancy a more sedate evening out.

We are planning another island hopping trip next year and whilst we usually try to only visit somewhere once, we will be doing our best to get back to Ios and specifically the Brothers Hotel.

I chose Brothers Hotel primarily on the ratings on this website and wasn't disappointed. Nick and his hospitable family operate the hotel and make you feel completely at home. Ios is known as a party island but Brothers is out of the way enough that you'll be able to relax in a peaceful and idyllic setting. If you want the party scene, it's only 10 min away by quad up in the village.
Nick picked me up at the port and within a few minutes was at the hotel relaxing poolside. Nick himself is so laidback and helpful. He made calls to help me rent my quad and gave me directions to get to my tour group staying at a different resort.
The beach and port are within walking distance about 10 min. If you are the type that wants to chill out, then this is the place to be.

Alex
