Ok, firstly I'm writing this from memory of when i holidayed in kos years ago with friends. We stayed in the olga paradise for a week and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, tidy, comfy and functional. Yes we were three young blokes who didn't really mind where we stayed, but this was a nice surprise. The bar food was decent and pool area clean and nice to relax in. I do remember the grotty looking older building (obviously the one that gets the bad reviews) nearby. My advice - do your research and book a room in the newer apartments. Good value. One last thing - we found olga and the the staff to be friendly and chatty, and enjoyed talking to them.
We stayed for a week despite some of the mixed reviews we read prior. I'm not too sure what the bad reviewers were expecting, 5 stars plus maybe? While the apartment was compact it was clean and comfortable. The owners were friendly, helpful and a pleasure to meet. Other hotels and apartments could take lessons. The cleaners came around daily and sheets and towels were changed mid week. While the area is quiet it, the apartments are only five minutes walk from a small supermarket and scooter/bicycle hire and not ten minutes from resteraunts, beach and bus stop. Our first time in Kos and we wouldn't hesitate to book at Olga's Paradise Apartments again.
Well what we paid for is what we got, basically clean tidy and staff were helpful perfect for our one night, the pool and surrounding area were well maintained, it's self catering with cooker and things in the apartment, if you want air con you have to pay extra for it, a short walk to beachside restaurants and all reasonably priced we used one place to eat in the morning's Theodores good staff and food overall this hotel is not that bad. WiFi only in reception area
Been travelling in Greece for a couple of weeks and this place was by far the most unfriendly and unwelcoming. We struggled to find it as their directions on Google are wrong and after dark there is no visable signage on the street. When we checked in, our room was really warm. We asked for a fan which was refused and told we could pay €5 a day for A/C, which was ok as A/C was not included in the room price. Before they would switch on the A\C they wanted €5 upfront (it was 11pm and we had no cash)! The rooms are spacious but there was hot water only in the evening and our room could have done with a good clean (there was a lot hair on the floor which wasn't ours!). Our ground floor room was also a basement room. The whole place was a bit tired and shabby although the pool was great. There are plenty of places nearby for the same price; stay somewhere else and at least feel welcome!
No cleaning made since 1997, drains were mouldy, bathrooms were not cleaned at all, i bought disinfectant , the furniture was all mouldy and smelled like an old sewage system. We didn't receive toilet paper as normal, no cleaning the room,the towels were stained with all sorts of thing (please see the attached photos), but my personal objects were tidily put in place by the cleaner. We woke up at 5 o clock in the morning with the terrace door open and my phone missing. The owner did not help at all, she was not surprised when we told her that someone was in our room and she started suspecting the neighbours and told that the police won't do anything. On top of this, when we left she literally told us to leave before normal check-out hour because she already has someone waiting for the room. Also when we were heading out of the hotel she came storming at us and blobering in Greek that we took the hotel room key with us - angry and very bad attitude. I won't recommend this to anyone unless you want to make this beautiful paradise called Kos a bit of a nightmare
After reading the bad reviews I thought, can't be that bad. To be honest the place it's really nice and they could do so much more with such a property. Customer service is terrible, not only for the lack of english but because you don't know if they are screaming in a rude way to you or is just the way they communicate. I rent the studio apartment which they kept screaming to me is a self catering apartment go to the supermarket!! I didn't have a kettle or knifes in my room. The room wasn't very clean. Very spacious thou. So if you are looking for a cheap nice place to stay but with very bad customer service this is the place to stay for sure! I think the south of the island is much nicer but if you want to stay near kos town this place is well located.
My family stayed at this apartment in May when visiting myself and my fiancé. It was cheap and cheerful, although they didn't use the pool or the bar as they spent all their time elsewhere with me, their room was very nice compared to other self catering apartments they have stopped in, in Kos. I went to the room and changed most nights and the room was quite spacious and it also had a bath which a lot of apartments don't. I thought the apartments were well worth the money as they only wanted it for a room to sleep in.
On firs view its nice hotel but rooms in basement are dirty , bad is too smelly. If i had it at home my dog would not like sleep on that. Owners are rude . If you asks something answer is NO , go out take hotel 5 stars. No wi-fi , no TV. Room service is bad , she try to take my money from valet just for 20 second when i was in toilet. Keep OFF !!!!
We have just returned from a week at Olgas paradise apartments, so sad to be home!!!!! The apartments were lovely, pool area was very clean and peaceful and the people that worked there were so friendly and helpful. It exceeded our expectations after the price we paid (and also reading some of the bad reviews on here....) Kos is an absolutely beautiful place, the hotel is a good 25 min walk into the main town, we hired a quad bike to get around which id definitely recommend if you want to see the island. The restaurants in Kos town are great, there's plenty of choice. I'd recommend the Chinese restaurant right at the end of the strip, the food was beautiful there. I'd also recommend visiting the hot springs - breathtaking views of the island!!! We did the 3 islands tour also which was great value for money. All in all, a wonderful holiday and would definitely return to Olgas paradise apartments. Thank you for such a lovely stay.
Recently visited with two children aged 10 and 12, and was very impressed. Decent sized one bed apartment with basic self catering facilities which were excellent value for money. Olgas was very clean and comfortable and had a great pool that had the added advantage that you didn't have to get up stupidly early to get a sun lounger which is one thing that always bugs me on holiday. The family were always around and very helpful if needed. I would happily return here to both the resort and accommodation as we had a fab holiday
