We were met at the port by hotel representative even though the ferry was extremely late and didn't dock until 1am. Excellent location. Close to cafes, bars and restaurants, hire cars, local bus. Everything you need is handy. Laundry was not available on site but it was sent away for us and returned in 5 hours. Shower could do with an upgrade but the balcony made up for it. A large balcony overlooking the harbour. Fridge. Telephone. Plenty of room. Would definitely like to return.

Direct to IOS port! Very good rooms, clean and exactly what we needed. The view is perfect. You have view to the port. Its a quiet hotel and the bus stop for all the places of the island is just infront of the hotel.Value for money is perfect!!!

Stayed 1 night at the Acteon hotel. Rooms are ok standard, but paper thin doors so you basically here everything going on ..... Nice view over the port and 10 steps from the bus to chora/mylopotas beach. So for 1-2 nights stopover it's ok, price too. 60 Euro, in high season.

Stayed here recently as we were traveling around a few of the Greek islands, for what we needed it for it was adequate however when we arrived at our room it was nothing as we expected. From the pictures on various websites the hotel looks smart and modern with wonderful sea views however our room (on the top floor which I can say had a pleasant port view) was dated and hardly resembled the pictures we expected. There is a car rental place underneath the hotel with a man which, at the start seemed helpful, however advised us that we were unable to travel around the island and to the beaches by bus and that we would have to hire a car obviously thinking we were 2 young and naive girls which we found out to be rubbish as there is a bus stop right across from the back entrance of the hotel which takes you into Chora town and to the main beach for only €1.80 per way). On our departure date we were also hurried out of our room as they were most likely expecting more people which I understand however we where asked 4 times if we could check out therefore had no time to do things which we wished to before our ferry left. The three men who were present that day also were getting impatient with us trying to sit in reception and wait for our boat which was not the best end to our stay as we just wished to relax in the shade with WiFi while we had it. Also if you are expecting to prepare your own meals, cutlery and bowls/plates are not provided therefore we had to make do and purchase our own. Overall the location of the hotel was good however there were a few things which could have improved our stay.

Stayed at the Acteon for 2 nights. Its only 50 yards from the ferry dock. Overlooking the marina. Smart and clean rooms. Quite a few steps in the hotel if on upper floors. No lift. Friendly and helpful lady on reception. Reasonably priced. 3 good tavernas next door. Great bakery across the road for pastries and coffee or tea at breakfast. Bus stop across the road for transport to the village or Millopoti beach and the far out village complex which is wonderful. You can walk to the village up a charming donkey track but you have to be moblie. Hotel Acteon is a good base in Ios. Car hire and ferry tickets available in reception. Will definately return. Ios is a really lovely island.

Acteon Hotel ..... reasonable price for accommodation. Staffs are nice. Hiring cars are a bit expensive 70 euros a day so we only hire it for 1 day enough to see Ios island. Clean hotel and shops and restaurants were just downstairs of the hotel. Port is in your doorsteps but the view is best of all.

We think this was the best choice of a hotel in Ios Chora port. The receptionist was very hospitable, helpful and friendly and suggested places to visit, also marked them on a map for us. Room was comfortable and clean, with a big sunny veranda, good view of the port area. Hotel is 3 min walking distance from the ferry port, and right in the middle of a few tavernas, cafes and supermarkets. Great location!

It was our first holiday as a couple after five years. Such a wonderful place. To be sure we booked to The Acteon cause our ferry arrived at 1am. When we contacted the Lady to arrange how to get in the room she has been very kind and available. The next morning she welcomed us and guide us about good breakfast, nice beaches and parties. We were surprised about her organization. Especially cause I forgot my makeup trousse in a restaurant the last night there (terrible for a girl, more for the sentimental value being that it is a gift), as soon as I called her she immediately went there to take it. What else to say, such a lovely person. Furthermore, the room was perfect for the situation. I mean very cosy, clean and furnished. Even if the cleaner start at 10 in the morning and you leave later you will find your room clean and tidy. It is not a common fact, in my experiences. Despite bad opinion, you are going in holiday so you don't need a Royal Suite. Try to enjoy outside. If you wanna stay in the room passing your time criticizing badly cause you don't have a jacuzzi to wash the sand on you then move away and pay more somewhere else. I mean, we are 19 and 22, so you can imagine how we are disorganized and caotic, but we lived in there peacefully and confortably. I felt that We paid the right amount for four nights in a well maintained room. Great place, rounded by rental shop, 24h mini market with fresh pastries and restaurants. I wont never regret about our choice and we are looking forward to go back. Go in holiday, sit back and enjoy the view!

Best location, right on beach close to restaurants. Nice quiet hotel with relaxing pool area. Good hosts. Complimentary transfers to and from port which is a massive bonus. Highly recommended if you are looking to relax & enjoy.

Stayed at Aegeon hotel for 4 nights while in Ios. It is run by Nikos and his family and they were fantastic hosts. The hotel is brilliantly located, right by the beach. There is a bakery right next to the hotel with a small minimart so you are able to get everything you need. Rigt in front is a nice eatery with great pizza's. Just down the road there is a ATV and scooter hiring place and great beach bars including Farout and Free Breach Bar. The hotel itself has recently had a little revamp and the outside areas look fantastic. The bar at the hotel is also great, and reasonably priced. If you are in to the Ios nightlife, it is a 5 minute bus ride which you can get right in front of the hotel and about a 20 minute walk back down the mountiam if you missed the last bus!
