Reviewed 5 November 2011

We got 6 people to Kos, we were very skeptical, because there were little pictures of the hotel online. When we came down so we were pleasantly surprised, that which met us was an elderly man standing at the front desk. He brought his youngest son Kostas. He helped us quickly to check inside. He showed us our rooms, and they were big and nice. We had apartments, so we had a fridge and cooking facilities. The rooms were cleaned every day except Sundays. Those who washed the rooms were very nice, they began not to wash with us before midday, when we were at the pool. The brothers who worked at the poolside bar was very pleasant and helpful with everything. They were very concerned that you would enjoy at the hotel. The pool is large and very deep. They were very concerned that it should be clean and tidy around the pool area. All the staff at the hotel Iris was very concerned that people would thrive there, there was a complaint of a gang of youths who apparently was on the party tour, they had to change hotels because they disturbed the other guests who were at the hotel.
We all 6 people who went to the Hotel Iris in years, Resi back next ate. We got on very well there, and could not think of another holiday. It goes a bit be visited are a couple who have been there 18 years in a row!
Are you looking for a vacation where you just want to relax, and have nice people around you, the Hotel Iris to andbefale. It is close to the city, the frequent buses, it is possible to rent bicycles on site. The family that runs the hotel is fantastic, and very pleasant.
I can andbefale this hotel to everyone, and I have everything andbefalt this hotel to many of my friends. Next year we take with our family.

I stayed here with my girlfriend last week 22nd-29th October. Room was basic, with all self catering facilities but it was cleaned spotlessly everyday. Breakfast was again, basic and non changing (greek yoghurt, jam, ham, honey, cheese, corn flakes coffee and tea) nut delicious all the same. The owners were very helpful, staying up till the early hours to welcome us in and allowing us to stay much later in our room because of our late flight.

Its a fair walk into Kos town, 15-20mins, but there are buses regularly. We found renting a scooter far easier and its a great way to see the island too, id really recommend hiring one! i makes life so much easier! (15 euros/day for 50cc, 20 for 125cc - go to escape rentals on the walk into kos down a bit furter up on your left from the mariner, the guy in there was brilliant and helped us out on our lastday giving us our scooter for free!)

My only gripe about the hotel is that it shut the pool before our visit, it looked so deep and amazing but can only imagine how lovely it would be in the summer! and the pool bar looked fab too.

Id really recommend this hotel,basic yet clean and comfortable, good location to explore the island, and its close to kos town and thermes beach (thermal pool!)...make sure you visit the 'so special' bakeyr on the walk into kos town from the hotel...yuuuuummmy!!

wonderful island, hotel and people = wonderful holiday

Spent 7 nights here from 8th Sept and enjoyed every minute of it ! It was spotlessly clean and the pool and surrounding area was immaculate, Family owned and ran the hotel and they were very friendly and helpful regards advising local tavernas car hire etc. Bus into Kos town 100 yards down on the main road and a quiet beach and three excellent tavernas 10 mins walk to the right along the main road. All in all we had a great holiday here and would definitely recommend it for a quiet relaxing week to set you up for the winter.

Room Tip: Upper floor apartments catch more of the sun

My partner and I booked this as we wanted a affordable holiday (so basic) but something that would be clean and enable us to explore Kos. We were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Iris; the staff at the hotel were very friendly and accomodating, and the hotel, though it appears dated is very clean and had everything we needed. The room service was excellent - rooms cleaned to a very high standard every day.
The hotel is in a great location, enabling you to walk (approx 25mins) or bike (15mins) into Kos town. Bike hire is literally next door to the hotel and we found this was best way to get about and see island. You can pay 4 euro per day or 20 euro to hire a bike for the week - the second option worked out most cost effective for us.
There is a supermarket over the road from the hotel were you can by literally anything you might need. Meals in kos town for two people are on average about 30 euros for two main meals and a drink each.
We had a really lovely holiday, the weather was fantastic and we stayed by the pool until mid-morning, reading and sunbathing and then went out on our bikes into town for remainder of the day.There are lots of lovely restaraunts in town and we enjoyed sampling a few of these. There are lots of local beaches if you don't fancy the pool (the hotel pool inicdentally is very clean with great pool bar).
Quick note - air con is 35 euro for the week, just incase you wanted to budget for this in advance. Also probably not best hotel for children under 10 years of age, but great for couples.
Like I say we really had a great time and would go back to kos and to the Hotel Iris again.

Cannot see why anyone would write a bad review about this hotel or the family that run it. We stayed in the main hotel. Yes, the rooms are dated, but that does not matter in the slightest, they are spotless, cleaned every day including Sunday , Fresh towels and linen everyday. This is a family run hotel, who work extremely hard to make your holiday memorable, just take the time to get to know them. Kostas and Minas were accommodating and helpful and the food in the snack bar was reasonably priced, fresh and tasty. We stayed bed and breakfast, and though everything was fresh, there could have been more choice( possibly). The pool is fab and the sun is on it all day, this hotel in my opinion is better for couples young or old. At the end of the day if you are looking for a good standard of service in a small family run hotel, that is reasonably priced, but not cheapened by the customers who frequent it, then this is the place to go.

We stayed in the appartments for the second year in a row. I was very sceptical about re-visiting as we have never done before. Absoloutley wonderful! run by a very respected family. Great accomodation, very clean, good food in the pool bar. Minos and Costas were very hardworking son's ensuring everyone had a good time.This accomodation is about a 30-35 min walk from Kos town but a wonderful location, but has a very frequent bus service . The pool area is great for adults but if you can't swim it is very deep ,and i would not reccomend for small children. Fantastic for couples!!
We love Kos and after looking around all of the island you could not wish for a more perfect spot to stay, close to Kos town but not noisey, with more than enough to do, WILL GO AGAIN!

Room Tip: the accomodation is only on two levels but ask for a first floor room as the views are so much bette...
