Hotel Alexandra is a great location. Everything is in walking distance, so that was great. It only took 3-5 minutes to get to the main part of the town, 5 minutes to the harbor, 8 minutes to the night clubs/bar area, etc. Even the furthest part of Kos only took us about 20 minutes.
The hotel itself is nice and clean. The rooms however were okay, only because I thought the beds were extremely hard. Being an American these beds were way to firm for me and my German boyfriend who is used to firm beds also thought the beds were to hard. Our room view was the alley, which at night was very noisy and loud so be prepared for that. You'll hear scooters flying up and down the alley way and cats fighting...that sort of thing.
The breakfast was much better then we expected. They actually served real scrabbled eggs, fried eggs, bacon, little sausages, breads, sweet treats, yogurt, fruits, and veggies. So, the free breakfast was worth it considering it could have been much worse.
At night the bar is open and the bartender was very helpful is giving us suggestions for night clubs/bars and restaurants. During our stay there were two girls that worked the front desk who were not so friendly, so we went back to our bartender at night for suggestions instead.
Even their gym was good. It had enough dumbbell weights and good quality cable machines. One treadmill, a bike, and a step machince. The pool and hot tub looked nice, but we didn't use them.
The food in Kos is also very good. I suggest a placed called Petrino...very good starters/tapas and reasonable prices. We actually went there twice for dinner because we liked it so much. I recommend the tapas...an array of choices to suit your hungry needs.
On the last day we rented a scooter from Escape Rentals, which is along the harbor area. It was only 15 euros for the entire day and we were able to travel nearly every little town on Kos Island...it was the best thing ever!
We took this hotel because all the others were "booked", what we later found out was that Kos Island's hotels and stores are closed six months out of the year. We happened to get there a week before tourist season opened and therefore many night clubs, charter boat cruises, stores, etc. were closed. The tourist season is from May-Oct, so book accordingly. We did like that it wasn't busy though, but only two-three night clubs/bars were open and they open at midnight.
We would stay here again because the location is great. There are other nice hotels near the harbor too. The other five star hotels were located to far for our liking and that would mean paying for a taxi if we wanted to go drinking at night.
