“Kolitsani View = Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

I have been to Ios for more than ten times and I have stayed in five different hotels. The last five years I keep going to Kolitsani View, which has become my favourite holiday destination. What I enjoy most is the warm welcome of the owners, the amazing view from every single part of the hotel, the proximity to the town and to the wonderful beaches of the island and the peaceful atmosphere. If your main desire is to have fun, the night clubs and bars are within walking distance. If you want to relax by the pool and gaze at the view, it will never be crowded nor noisy. However, for those who associate Ios with partying all night, getting drunk and doing all sorts of silly things that are not able to do at home... well there are plenty of other "cheap" hotels in the island, which cater for the needs of "poor quality" tourism! I am able to "recommend" lots of hotels, where they serve you bad quality drinks all day long so as to get you drunk, make a fool of you and rip off your money...! Kolitsani View appeals to another kind of traveler, a person who appreciates my country, Greece, for what it really has to offer: mesmerizing landscapes, crystal clear waters, delicious food and a hospitable embrace of the "guest"... the person who has honoured us with their presence in our country!..

The hotel was nice, and really well located.
Just 5 min from the city night life.
If you want some relax and enjoy the view it's perfect, but the swimming pool was to cold to swim. And also the Spa it's not free! and that's not mentioned. It's really expensive, 5€ per person per 20 min.
If you are looking for a place to have fun, that's not for you. But here you can relax a bit after a wild night into Ios club!

From the minute we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The rooms are not fancy but nor is the price. Everything else - pool, cleanliness and atmosphere is five star. It doesn't matter where you are on the property you have the most outstanding view of the coastline. A 7 minute walk takes you to Kolitsani beach, one of the best secluded beaches on the island. Your also a few minutes walk from the main town and a short drive to Mylopotas Beach which makes the location perfect.

Really unwelcome people..we were staying here for 6 days and we were unable to bring people by..he was even warned us when we were talking inside our apartment,he also watered our frappe package so we had to buy coffee from the bar which was terrible,there was no barman just a 60 years old person who was unable even to make a mojhito..last day in kolitsani view my friends and me invited some girlfriends to join our company in hotel and the owner of the hotel,mr mihalis just through them away with hard and rude way..in my opinion if you want to come to ios and have fun do not come to kolitsani view..really bad experience and people..

This hotel had the most amazing view of the ocean, the location is really good if you want to be away from noise and the partying as it is quite high up on a hill. The owners were amazing, so friendly and helpful, they were so welcoming it makes you feel like your at home! The rooms were quite clean but outdated and pretty small. overall i had a great experience !

Every now and again you meet someone who instantly feel like family and you find a place that feels just like home, just better. That's how it feels coming to Elisabeth and Mikaelis at Kolitsani View. I can hardly praise them enough, but would like to give a few examples:

We never looked at a menu, they just cooked whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted it! They will let you in on the secrets spots the locals love. They even brought us champagne in the jacuzzi, on their own initiative! We overstayed our original booking with several nights, before spending our last evening having drinks in the bar with Mikaelis. As soon as we left for Naxos we regretted the decision to move on.

Even though the location is excellent (with a great view), it is a five minute walk from the city. We were happy to to get away from noise when we were done partying. And even though you need to take a bus to the beach, chances are you'll enjoy the pool so much, you'll forget about going all together. We did, and we don't even like pools! And if not it's only a five minute bus ride.

This is our favorite place on all the islands. Remember to talk to you host and hostess, they are what makes Kolitsani so amazing. It's home away from home. We'll be back for sure.

The view was amazing that was for sure nice and close to town.
The rooms are very basic but acceptable
We had a airconditioner that was playing up you do need it to sleep and the owner
was very sure that it was our flot that the air con was not work and saying that we broke it
we did nothing of the sort.
So once she said it was fixed it still played up.
These things happen but u cant blame the costomer.
