“Nice place and the people are the best part”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

This is a B&B run by a wonderful family on the island and while I found everything i.e. rooms, location, cleanliness etc. very good by Patmos standards what really makes this place special are the people. Nicolas and his family are very warm and friendly - they do more than what is necessary in terms of just "business" and will help you out any way they can when possible.
The studio I stayed in had a mountain view (if you kept the room door open) and a sea view of Skala Harbour from the balcony. Studio was spacious, very clean (cleaned everyday with change of towels), simply but nicely furnished (2 single beds, small dining table + chairs, glass sitting table with chairs, some crockery / cutlery and cooking utensils, small fridge, a large wardrobe and two small chests of drawers beside each bed), air-conditioner capable of heating included and working, and the bathroom is basic (no shower box or curtain, just a shower place although the floor has a drain as is customary in most Greek island homes) but clean and with good water supply. Breakfast is simple and just fine - a fat slice of bread with butter and jam, biscuits, greek cheese puff, some fruit, coffee, fruit juice, cheese and home toast, and yogurt) and will be brought up to your room. The locality is pleasant as is the rest of the beautiful and relatively tranquil island of Patmos.
Nicolas is well known on this island and is in good standing so you can benefit from his network for certain things like car rentals for instance.
The only thing that could be improved would be to create a shower box or curtain of some sort in the bathrooms.
Overall: an excellent stay for me.

We had a wonderful week on the beautiful island of Patmos this September.

Our lodgings at Nicolas studios were excellent. We had a neat and fully equipped apartment with a generous balcony with a beautiful view of the harbor. We found the studios ideally located - a five minute walk into the centre of Skala in one direction and a pleasant five minute walk to the beautiful secluded beach of Meloi in the other direction. It was an excellent base for exploring the island.

This alone would have been a guarantee for a great holiday! To make it a really memorable holiday we were delighted by the hospitality shown to us by or host Nicolas, his family and his staff. They were really helpful offering advice and frequently transportation too, as well as wholesome breakfasts with homemade breads and jams every day.

Highly recommended!

We arrived from Samos and had the good fortune to choose to go with Nicholas to his studios at Netia, which is in walking distance from down town Skala and Melloi beach.
Nicholas, went the extras mile, gave us a SUPER studio with balcony and kitchenete fro as long as possible.
Every morning he treated us and other guests with *Fragossyka* wild figs and other figs.
Nicolas and Theologia's generosity have no boundaries. Sugar, fresh eggs, cake and treats were offered to us.
Hospitality from Nicholas is genuine and offered from the heart.
Nichola's when Lord's willing will come again to your beautiful island , we will come speadily at your Place.
You are the tops!!!

Arrived in Patmos after overnight ferry trip. Nicolas and his son were there to greet me and take me to the studio.rooms were scrubbed to within an inch of there lives and very comfortable. Lovely garden view and outdoor seating. Nicolas and his lovely wife as so generous and very kind. Meal are not part of the stay but mummy kept bringing me cake and Coffey. Very sweet. Nicolas always dropping me in small gifts of fresh figs,Apricots, cactus fruit. Very lovely and genuine people. Location was good as well just on the fringe of Skala. 10 minute walk or if you hire bike 2 minutes. Restaurant 200 metres away and good local food. You will love this place

We spent 8 days on Patmos and on Nikolas studios. I want to say a great thank you to Nikolas and his wife, for their hospitality and for their services. By far, the most hospitable place I have ever been. Thank you and we will definitely come back if we will be in Patmos again!

Just a quick note to Nicolas, Theologica & the family for a fantastic short stay on Patmos. We booked at short notice but on arrival recieved an upgrade (room was lovely with a petit balcony and a sea view)Nothing was too much trouble from picking us up at the port (& dropping us off) to the lovely complimentary breakfast and sorting us a moped.
I can pay no greater compliment than I would recommend to anyone and will definitely be back.

My daughter and I stayed at Nicoals studios in the beginning of May 2013 and it was lovely! Nicolas, his wife and sons are very friendly people who do everything they can for their guests. Nicolas will drive you to Hora, to the beach to your ferry, wherever you want to go!
They have a beautiful big garden with a big enclosure for chickens and goats. They have a lot of rabiitsand while we were there there were a lot of baby rabbits and three adring baby goats. So my daughter loved it very much. Nicolas daughter showed here the place and she could cuddle all the babies she want.

The rooms were good with a balcony with beautiful views over Skala and the port. Breakfast was abundant and very good.

We loved the place and when we return to Patmos we will most certainly be back here!

Thanks, Nicolas mrs Nicolas, sons and daughter, you really made us a stay we will never forget!
