We have just returned from a week away at the Hippocrates and to be fair the hotel was OK, and catered for our basic needs, the hotel is situated in Psalidi on the outer of outskirts of Kos Town, according to the holiday brochure you can take a leisurely walk into town, if 45mins is a leisurely stroll then the brochure is accurate!(NoooTTT!) We hired bikes from the rental shop outside the hotel to ease the burden a little, this made life a lot easier.
The hotel itself is very clean and well kept, the reception is bright and airy, the restaurant is a little bit 'school canteen' but is again spotless. The variety of food is a little limited and is not very well presented but is edible all the same. You have the option of booking a table for an evening meal at the Kipriotis Village just up the road which is highly recommended, we went there twice to sample the Italian themed evening, we did book a table for the Greek evening but changed our minds as our hotel was holding a Chinese evening. The Hippocrates restaurant did hold international themed nights but the choice of food was smaller.
The bedrooms were very spacious, comfortable, clean and had all the ususal refineries, however we were intrigued to discover tea making facilities mysteriously appear in our room on the day we were leaving,(late upgrade?)
The staff were very friendly accross the hotel and there was no issues getting served at the bar and we were always greeted with a smile and a 'Yamas!'
The pool area is quite spacious, clean and there was not an issue finding sun beds while we were there.
The beach is situated accros the road around 300 metres from the hotel, the beach was a little disappointing and was very stoney. The beach did however offer a welcome relief to the heat as it was quite breezy.
Kos Town is quite pretty if a little dilapidated and has various places of interest, e.g Roman ruins etc. and is worth a visit as Psalidi is very quiet.
To sum up we enjoyed our stay at the Hippocrates but probably would not return due to the hotels location.

We went here for 2 weeks in May 2015 to get married. The hotel is 4 star as stated. The rooms are cleaned every day and the food does have a wide variety but does become a little boring after 2 weeks. Lunch was the better choice of food.
We had arranged our wedding via email direct with the wedding planner Irini Samara from Kipriotis Group after visiting in May 2014 and meeting with the wedding planners. Irini has been outstanding with her attention to details and at our service 100%. She met with us and went through everything that we had sent via email to confirm that our day went to plan. There was a huge error from the British consulate in Athens when they issued our CNI. If it was not for Irini's work we would not have got out legal marriage licence, this was due to the work that she put in to find another way around the legal side.
We got married on the beach at the Village resort and then had our reception at The Mix & Match bar. The weather was fantastic and the sun was still beaming down at high temperatures so Irini suggested pushing the wedding back an hour which worked out perfectly. Likewise with the Mix & Match bar. This is open air venue and the sun was still shining. The food was gorgeous and every guest made comment on how beautiful it was and how much was provided. Our wedding cake was nothing like we had tasted before, delicious.
All that was provided was down to Irini listening and getting it right for us to make our day just perfect. Irini also read our vows on the beach and got emotional which just showed how genuine she is.
All in all we had the perfect wedding in the perfect location making a perfect day for us and our guests. The wedding planner Irini went above and beyond what we could have ever expected to ensure we had a perfect day. She even called 2 weeks after we returned home to make sure we were ok and enjoyed our special day.

Room Tip: Do No accept end of corridor rooms as a very long way to get to stairs and lifts

You are wondering what can I say, that I already haven't after our 7th visit? A lot I say!

We arrived a little later than usual due to our usual Ryan Air flight being removed other than in July, to find the warmest welcome back you could ever imagine. A handshake and a hug later we were being presented with our room key and sent up to our spotlessly clean room! Complete with some lovely gifts to mark our return.

We'd also brought two friends who stayed for a week during our ten day stay and they were also impressed.

The following morning Vasilis, the Hotel Manager took the time out of his day to meet us and welcome us back! Then, as soon as we entered the dining room the Maitre'd spotted us and came over to talk.

The Hippocrates, has undergone some changes since our last visit since being badged as a Thomas Cook Smartline hotel. The lobby is newly redecorated and has free wifi for all guests which is a welcome addition for keeping in touch with home. None of the changes however have affected the warm, loving and attentive service we received from staff in any area of the hotel. I must add though that I did prefer the previous uniform, its much smarter and re-inforces the Kipriotis Hotels brand!

As ever, the restaurant is gleamingly clean but the new chef has made some changes to the menu and the week now features a Greek night, an Italian night and a Chinese night with themed food. At each meal time a great selection of international cuisine is served and on the theme night there is still plenty to eat for those who are fussy eaters (myself included!).

I can truly say that after ten nights we were awfully sad to leave, it's like a home from home for us amongst friends!!

So if you are reading this, I urge you to choose the Hippocrates for your stay and let Vasilis and his amazing team show you their famous Greek hospitality on the beautiful island of Kos.

We'll certainly be keeping our promise to return too :)

See you later in the year!!

Before I sign off though, I must make one more comment. And that is my utter dismay at the way the Daily Mail have presented recent articles regarding the influx of migrants to Kos. I can categorically say that they are wrong, and should be ashamed of their actions.

It's clear to see in Kos Town that migrants are present, and you'll clearly see this around the Police Station and Port. What isn't true is that they are sleeping rough, causing trouble and upsetting holiday makers. They are simply waiting patiently for their papers before moving on to the mainland to try and rebuild their lives.

I hope that anyone considering Kos, takes no notice of the Daily Mail. You'll find more accurate representations made by the Guardian and Observer and if you search the BBC website you'll find a clip from the one show too.

We stayed in Kip Hippocrates for 2 weeks and The hotel and facilities were very good. All the staff were very polite and very hard working. The entertainment at night lead by Rollo and Anna and the team was always entertaining and they were really good at interacting with the guests and getting them involved. The bar staff lead by Hosein always had a smile on their faces and were very sociable. The negative review I must give the hotel was about the food as an all inclusive package deal the food served in the first week was adequate but in the 2nd week it was really poor and that is what prevents me from giving this Hotel a 4 star review.

Went with a group of 6 boys. Nightlife is ropey but this hotel was a treat and the other guests didn't seem to mind our antics too much. All inclusive at a reasonable price. Food as with any all inclusive was on a rotation however the selection was good, and the chef was very accommodating and welcoming. Rolo and Victor the animation boys were a right laugh. Bar staff were incredible all of them. Always asking us if we wanted more drinks. The selection on all inclusive was reasonably limited however they were never short in providing us with g and t's which is a bonus! Would recommend to family and youngsters!
