I stayed at the Hippocrates at the end of April and like some other reviewers I have mixed feelings.
At the time of booking it was sold as being part of a complex consisting several hotels with use of the facilities at the other buildings, specifically use of the 5 differently themed restaurants in the Kipriotis Village. As it was the first week of the season, none of the hotels were open and so we were confined to the Hippocrates.
That aside, once we accepted we had only the Hippocrates to use it is really a pretty decent hotel.
The rooms are not luxury but adequate, clean and maid service excellent.
The bar is ok, the staff do their best but it does get busy particularly late on. There is only one bar though and it was getting annoying when it was full of kids late in the evening as they had nothing else to do. Hopefully that won’t be an issue when the sister hotels are open. There is a disco/club on site that is open until 3am too. Its nothing special and the drinks are expensive but for those who want to stay up late without going into Kos town it does the job.
The food is ok, not great but you won’t starve. There is a big enough selection that you’ll always find something to eat. Breakfast in particular is worth getting up for.
Entertainment, well the animation staff are great and make you feel right at home. Valantino in particular is a great host and never stops working dawn til night making all the guest feel welcome. Unfortunately despite the best efforts of Valantino and his team to get people involved, they had very little facilities or staff to work with. I assume the hotel normally relies on the facilities in the sister hotels but as above they were not available when we went.
On the whole, I cannot complain for what we paid, it is a decent well run hotel with a nice pool and bar. Once the other hotels are open (if use of their facilities is honoured) you would struggle to complain.
