Normally I don't write reviews but this time it is inevitable. The only good thing about the hotel was its cheapness. Towels and bed sheets were dirty with many stamps on them and you were afraid to even take a shower and/or sleep. The owner was very disrespectful towards me and my female friends and made very rude comments whenever we asked him something. If you're looking for a place to survive the night then you should go there but if not try to find something else.
This hotel was absolutely terrible. The absolute least you expect from a hotel is for it to be clean and comfortable enough to sleep in, and this had NEITHER! The first thing we noticed when we got in the room was that the sheets and towels had all sorts of stains on them, plus the pillows seemed to just be turned to their "good side", since one side smelled ok, and the other one smelled like straight up sweat. We found mold inside the closet and 3 different insects in the half a day we stayed in the hotel. It was so bad we had to change hotels the very next day! The owner is extremely rude and unprofessional, and made really sexist comments about us, trying to blame every single thing wrong with his "hotel" to us. Both his behaviour and his hotel were truly unacceptable. Overall, I would say that this has been the worst hotel experience and I would recommend you stay as far away from it as possible.
A disgusting place to be. The owner was the most rude person I have met; sexist and always pining the problems of the hotel on us. Towels and sheets had many different types of stains and weren't even ironed. The tap wasn't working and neither was the light. The cleaners must have simply swapped the towels between us instead of giving us clean ones and it is highly likely that they are the reason a yogurt and some of our biscuits were missing. There was dust everywhere and even the toilet seat was problematic. We also found a huge insect:) On the bright side, the view was great and some of the stuff were super friendly, but that does not outweigh our horrible stay there. I wouldn't be surprised if I caught some kind of disease thanks to Princess Sissy. It isn't just another bad hotel, living there is dangerous for your health and wellbeing. JUST DON'T GO.
The rooms are basic but are value for the money you pay. Location is great and is walking distance from the beach and the town. The staff were lovely especially the cleaners, The male waiter/cook who worked so hard! And also the owners daughter who was very friendly. The owner however was quite rude and unhelpful, On arrival the toilet in our room was broken and the pipe burst days after. The owner then blamed us and shouted at us even though there was an issue with it before we arrived.
The only thing I liked from this hotel was the young lady at the bar. The only communicative person in the hotel. The owner was really rude and at some point we felt like he did us a favour! He forgot that he was the person who got paid and that being the owner of a hotel has some responsibilities too. He acted like he knew everything and when I asked for an iron he shouted at me and used bad words like I asked for something inappropriate (eventhough iron was in the facilities of the room) About the room, by the time we entered the room we noticed that THE TOILET was dirty and hadn't been cleaned since the last visitors have left. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone!!!!
We underestimated the party island vibe and being in our 30's, felt a little intimidated by the younger crowd!! Alas, we had Nico! He runs the hotel fantastically and is approachable and easy to get along with. There is a great menu and bar too. Our only problem was noise in the rooms of people getting home and being loud during the night. We could hear word for word through the walls and were woken multiple times. This was the only downfall and I'm not overly surprised for IOS!
If frugality is the game, Princess Sissy is the name. Don't expect to find any Greek deity's lounging around this hotel, but for the value, view and cleanliness you won't find anything better in Ios. Nikos will wait on you hand and foot and ensure you have all the essentials. PS is also centrally located beside the path that leads down to the port or up (seemingly to Olympus) to the village. And don't forget about "cheers", the affixed taverna. Take a bottle of beer up to the communal rooftop and share mythical stories while watching Charon bring new souls to Ios.
We stayed at this hotel 2 years ago. We were 4 men in our 20's so we were basically looking for something decent, paying as less money as possible. This hotel isn't even worth 1€ per night. If they got inspected I am sure they would shut the place down. First of all, the place was very small. He put as in a 4 bed room with a sliding door between 2 "rooms". There was barely any space to walk or move in the room or somewhere to put our luggage. We had to put our luggage on top of each others and the cupboard was very small, for 5-6 shirts maybe. The room was very dirty, we found 2 or 3 cockroaches (!!!) the beds, towels, blankets and floor had stains and were generally dirty, there was rust everywhere in the bathroom. The worst of all though, was the owner. The rudest person I have ever met in my life. He would shout at us, swear to us or other guests, complain to us that we didnt buy food from him or even wake us up in the middle of the night to tell us something. It is basically the worst hotel I have stayed in my life and I would stay at any other hotel with twice the money if I ever visit Ios again. DO NOT STAY THERE!
This hotel does not tick any boxes 1) room was dirty, ants crawling on us, no hot water and someone else's business was found in the toilet on our arrival - disgusting, beds uncomfortable 2) hotel owner was incredibly rude and made us feel extremely uncomfortable. he told us off for being too loud at 5PM (we were only talking) because he was trying to nap. he also made us stay in separate rooms on the other side of the hotel from our friends simply because they were of the opposite sex. when we complained about all things above he called my friend a rude word in Greek not realising we were Greek ourselves and in fact understood every word he said. NO ONE should be treated like that! This is NOT what Greek hospitality is about.
This hotel is so much cheaper than it should be. They offer a free shuttle from the port to the hotel and are very welcoming when you walk through their doors. The room we had was small but not cramped, it had great views of the port from the large terrace and the bed was very comfortable. The room had a small HD TV, a small fridge and plenty of storage space. The hotel is located half way up the hill between the port and the old town. Easily accessible by road and there is also a path that goes straight past the hotel.
