We stayed at the Atkis Art in January. Obviously this is not in the thick of tourist season, but we like to visit the islands then -- you get a real feel for what it's like for those who live there. And the weather is mild, oftentimes sunny, with good hiking possibilities.
The hotel was absolutely perfect for us: close to the ferry, just paces away from the heart of Kos town -- ideal for a quick run to the store or evening stroll to a restaurant.
We loved the room -- with floor to ceiling windows and the view toward the water! The street is behind you so you hear only the sounds coming from the sea.
The staff is friendly and energetic -- they helped us find a well priced car, print boarding passes, find good places to eat. The restaurant in the hotel is quite fine, too, and clearly popular among the locals -- it's busy all day long.
In all -- it was a lovely four day stay! If I had to list one slight complaint it would be not really directed at this hotel, but at most hotels in Greece: they really should offer no smoking floors and rooms. We didn't have any smell of tobacco in our room -- it was immaculate and fresh -- well cleaned every single day. But when our neighbor smoked, we could faintly detect this (there was a connecting door). We opened the window to compensate for it. Still, it would be great if Greek establishments were more restrictive toward smokers. At least at the Aktis, the dining room was fully nonsmoking (though the coveted enclosed glass porch was for smokers).
