“The perfect 3 star hotel in the center of Kos town”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Everyone, who will visit this hotel, will do so for it's convenient proximity to the old town of Kos and the center of Kos town itself. Or because it is opened all year round.

We thought it was a cute little hotel, a perfect base for our 3rd holiday in Kos. Don't expect luxury, but you get what you paid for. And the staff is very nice.

The room was nice, with al the ammenities you would expect: double bed, TV, free wi-fi, shower, hairdryer, fridge and a closet to put your stuff in. And I always appreciate it, when a room has a lot of mirrors and a holder for my suitcase. And they change bath and hand towesl every day. I think there are no sea views from the hotel, but we had the honor to have a view of the new excavation of the Agora on Kos. We will certainly be back, to see the new site up close, because I love to learn about history and every time we go back to Greece, it feels like I am going back 2000 years in time to explore ancient cities.

The breakfast was fine, lots to choose from. And they had some traditional greek pastries and breads also, which were home made. So we didn't understand what the other reviewers are wining about. In addtion to traditional greek food there were also eggs, toast, jams, cheese and ham, even cereals and warm milk, which you do not get often in greek hotels (other hotels often only have cold milk, which makes my coffee too cold).

We had a bit of the sniffels from the weather back home in Slovenia, so we also appreciated hot water and cammomille tea. And we had great company of 3 parrots at breakfast :-).

But the weather in the middle of September in Kos is still hot, great for swimming on Bubble beach (or Paradise beach) The hotel is close to the bus station, which was great for daily excursions to other parts of the island. I must say that the bus transport runs smoothly on Kos, so be punctual, if you travel with them, or you will be late.

We liked this hotel. It is close to everything in Kos town (old town, town center, bus station, and our favourite sweets shop To special) and the location is very calm, there was no noise from the streets. Overall, a great place to stay.

P.S.: As a lot of hotels these days, they have key cards, and you can even get a 10 % discount with your key card in Avanti restaurant by the sea (at their sister hotel Triton), just remember to mention this to the waiters before you order.

Stayed at Maritina hotel for 5 nights. Great location, really central and close to all the amenities.
Very poor quality of breakfasts, food was cold and not good at all, we ended up eating out most of the time. The reception not very friendly or helpful either but at the end of the day, we still enjoyed our stay. The hotel had a free wifi and nice clear rooms, rather tiny so a long time stay not recommended, but for a short stay, especially if you're planning on spending most of the time out, that's not a problem at all. Would recomment

We've stayed at Maritina for 2 weeks during August. This hotel deserves an "average" score by all means, except for the location. It is very close to the city center, and to our most favorite restaurant in Kos, which is Ali.

If you are in Kos for a sea-sand-sun type of holiday, and have kids, the best beach you will find around is Paradise (we've visited nearly all other beaches on the island, and I can guarantee that this is the best one), which is very close to Kefalos, but it takes a 40 min drive from Maritina Hotel to reach there. We didn't know that and we had to travel that road every single day, back and forth. Other than that, the location of the hotel is nearly perfect.

I can not easily say that the hotel is clean, and the services are perfect. We had to ask the reception several times to get our bed sheets to be changed, or the floor of the room to be wiped regularly. We even had to ask to get our shower jel to be re-filled. But the staff is helpful.

The breakfast is terrible. If you will stay at this hotel, just pay for the room, and have your breakfast wherever else you can.

The rooms are small, and the beds are not comfortable. But the utitlities are ok. The air-conditioning is perfect. The elevator is terrible.

After our unplanned and long lasting experience in Kos island, I can confidently say that it is a place that you must stay for only 1 or 2 days; even a daily visit will be enough.

The last point is, the restaurants in Kos are really expensive for such a service level and quality. The only restaurant that deserves a 5 star is Ali. You can have the best local food there, with reasonable prices; but don't forget to make a reservation before you go.

Room Tip: I never give staff names in my reviews, but Katerina deserves an exception, and she is the best pers...

Stayed three nights in July 2013 in an emergency situation following my wife needing to be admitted to the main hospital in Kos Town whilst on vacation.
The hotel is the nearest to the hospital (80m) and the receptionists were very sympathetic as I did not know how long I would be staying, so they gave me an open-ended reservation at a reduced cost.
The hotel itself is a well maintained in a good position for the shops and harbour etc. It has a mix of clientele - at breakfast, there are business people dressed formally sat next to holiday makers in swimwear & arm-bands!
I would recommend especially if you had the misfortune to need to stay near the the medical centres in town.

In a Very convenient distance to main bus terminal and old town, Maritina hotel is a good choice when visiting Kos. The breakfast buffet is good. The price level is right and the rooms are clean. Definitely will stay again.

The hotel is located in a very central location, 5 min. away by walk to the center, stores and points of interest.
The rooms are a little small but very comfortable and clean with a very powerfull a/c (helpful during the hot summer), a small bathroom and a balcony. The wifi works very well in the rooms and in all public areas.
The ladies at the front desc are very helpful.
The staff is very polite and everyone cares alot about it's customers. Especially I want to mention Nektarios and Kyriakos who are doing their best efforts to help you during your stay.
I stay at this hotel most times when visiting the island and every time I feel that I am in my home.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ancient ruins are quieter than the others on the main road (El. Venizelou str.)
