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.
