Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Rita's place is great for staying in Ios! Perfectly located with a short walk to city Center, bus stop close by, not directly in the City where the party goes on all night. Very clean, balcony and huge pool. Great view towards the port. Fair prices, good value for money. Transfer from and to port. Friendly staff. I really can recommend Rita's Place.

Stayed here with a small group of girls in July 2013, and the memory of the sun setting over the hills is still fresh in my mind. We were picked up by Rita at the port and driven up the winding road to her lovely little hotel. It's about a 7 minute walk outside of Ios town, making the hotel very quiet but still central to bars, clubs, and shopping. We posted up by the beautiful pool almost as soon as we arrived and stayed there late into the evening. The sunsets from this pool are simply unreal - there wasn't a single night we missed it.

The rooms are quite simple, but very clean, spacious, and comfortable. Our room also had a small balcony, with stunning views over the island's hillside. Although most of the people staying at the hotel were the young partying type, we couldn't actually hear any noise from our neighbours. If I return to Ios, I will most certainly be staying at Rita's again.

Our 4th stop in Greece..PARTY ISLAND IOS, a last minute decision on route to Santorini, we decided to spend one night there. Rita greeted us at the port to take us to her place. A gorgeous hillside view. A lovely 10 minute walk down to the port or a 15 minute walk to the center of the city. A short bus ride to the beach. Location was superb for our age group (not to close to party central). We enjoyed a beautiful breakfast served outdoors.

This place is simply what most travelers want to have. A very clean, comfortable room,sound-insulated, with simple decoration and spacious balconies with great view - almost all rooms have sea view - . The service is perfect - daily clean, change of towels. Owners are polite, friendly and always there to provide help and information about the island. The pool is among the biggest you can find in such type of accommodation. Always clean, sheltered by the wind, and the calming of the scenery is the TOP of this place. The location also is ideal. 5 minutes walk from the Chora bars and restaurant, 5minutes walk from the port by the local old path. Also bus stop is outside the hotel. Finally it has its own private parking that can accommodate at least 12 vehicles.
Recommended definitely for people that wants a descent accommodation without paying a huge amount, and enjoying the great view of Ios Port.

Ios is always going to be a compromise, with the port/beach, Chora and Mylopotas beach all being separate. Rita's place is an excellent compromise. There is a nearby bus stop that can take you from koubara at the north of the port and yialos beach, to Chora and Mylopotas, all for 1 euro 60 cents. Failing that you can take the nearby donkey steps up to the Chora or down to the port. The route is not so easy to discover but if you get one of the free maps of ios from the travel agent at the port you'll soon work it out, as did we. It is not necessary to use the road. Both directions take about 10 mins. Note: not suitable for pushchairs or if you can't manage a bit of exercise. In this respect, Rita's place thats why we think this hotel is a perfectly situated compromise for all options - and if you don't want to go to the beach there is a large clean pool with an excellent view to the port beach. You can get drinks at the bar. Breakfast is available if you want.

The rooms are fine, clean - daily maid service helps - and pretty much as good as it gets in places like this. There is a small fridge but no kettle. The bathroom is adequate, again clean. Towels changed regularly. They even provide big towels for the pool. We had a small balcony with decent chairs and a small table, allowing us to look out over the bay. Air conditioning works well. The TV is minuscule. We just used it to watch BBC World News. There is free wifi which was OK, but frustratingly slow at peak times. You get a collect/drop off to the port.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely come back or recommend to others.

We decided last minute to make a stop off in ios. We were unsure where to stay and some friends had given us recommendations. Unfortunately all of these places were full. We found Rita's on the Internet and went with it. The pool was so lovely and clean. The rooms were also perfect- it is within walking distance from the town (actually) and is away from all the madness of ios nightlife,and the main beach is only a 6euro taxi away or you can take the bus. The only downfall was There were 3 of us and the room was a bit cramped with all our suitcases and girls paraphernalia.... More like a room for 2. Others than that I would highly recommend this place to stayin ios.

Room Tip: As stated above don't put three in one room

We have been staying only one night in this hotel but we were quite amazed of how good it was for the price we paid. The rooms were simply decorated but clean and new.
We had a double room on the last floor with a balcony with a view on the see and pool.
Rita was very welcoming and nice; she advised us some places for diner. It was 5 minutes walking distance from the main city and Rita came to pick-up us at the port with no extra charges.
Place recommended!

Room Tip: last floor with pool and see view
