The hotel is managed by a very friendly family. They look after all the time. Very well located: 10 minutes walking to the port and 15 minutes to Chora. They also offer you free shuttle to the port. Excellent service and fantastic swimming pool. The bar offers fantastic cocktails for a good price. The rooms are quite good. Nothing.
Great location, great view, great price, great staff, brilliant stay. Will definitely be coming back next year!
The family who run the otel were warm and welcoming. The pool was wonderful to beat the heat of Greece. Easy bus ride into main town or a quick walk. Beautiful view of the sea.
he staff was great, although no music could be played after arpund 10pm..family oriented hotel. If you wnat something more relaxed lok closer to the port. the pool closed at 8pm which was expected but did not allow for any time in teh pool at sun-down/sun-set. food selection could be better.
Our second stay here and not our last! As before clean, quiet, loverly pool, loverly owners.
People there are very friendly Nothing
The attitude and assistance of the staff. The relaxing atmosphere and absence of noise.
The staff were very friendly, the room was great, and the view from the pool was very pretty.
The pool was gorgeous. We were booked for two nights and our ferry to the island got canceled because of high winds. I called the hotel to move our stay back a night because it was impossible to get to the island and was told I would incur a whole nights extra charge because I hadn't canceled in the stated time period. I reiterated that I would still be staying there the number of nights I had booked but couldn't get there because of canceled ferries and they did not care. I got them to negotiate it down from charging me a whole extra night, but it was out of my control and they were unreasonable. I was very upset and disappointed.
the friendliness of staff and their willingness to help- give advice about the island/ having a balcony and swimming pool with great views/ good public transport to main locations around the island (main town walkable if not too hot)
Very nice appartmentl with very clean room and friendly staff. It is located just outside the port with an short walk to the beach. Excellent.
I stayed at the Galini Pension for 3 nights and I liked the fact that it was very quiet and close to the beach. I believe that the room was overpriced without breakfast included in that price.
calm, nice garden
Beach down the street, Hora (nightlife) 20-minute walk.Need to rent a car to see the island,. Very quiet.
nice place with a good location and staff very helpful and polite.
Galini was a fantastic hotel the staff were better than 1st rate being family run you felt very much like part of the family though not smothered. The rooms were cleaned and sheets and bedding provided daily. the location though quiet was only 3 minutes walk from the port which is vibrant and full of locals eating and drinking in all an outstanding experience
People at hotel is very friendly, the hotel is near the beach and hotel and rooms are very clean!
Great hotel. Super friendly staff. Loved the vines over the walkway to keep you cool in the day. These are the places are enjoying staying in. Been in the family for years and they truly make you feel welcome. Thanks for making our holiday. Matt and Carol.
very quiet place with nice people not far away from the beach and the port!! the shower not very praticable!
Really good hotel, staff is really friendly, nice room, very good price, everything perfect
Beautiful pool over ocean. Clean and modern rooms. Restaurant menu is promising, but food is not as good as expected.
Hotel high quality but not totally luxirious. a jacuzzi free to use but not very clean. The room was really nice. Spa/ Massage available upon request => not very cheap. The swimming pool was great, loved it but the water wasn't heated ! The view was wonderful. Perfect place for lovers or a group of friends. The staff was nice too. Free pick up at the port if requested. Free breakfast really good and various. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from downtown => you have to take stairs to go up to reach the center (that can be fastidious). For a "luxurious" hotel, the towels were not very soft (looked like used a couple of times ) and did not gave us shampoo/ soap samples for the second day. If you don't close all the doors and windows - the air conditionning won't work=> it is an automatic system (this comment may sound weird, but once you will be in the room you will get it ;-) !). We did not have much to spend, so we felt a bit apart from the others who were taken drinks and food at the hotel bar while they were near the swimming pool.
The staff !!! The people who works at Liostasi are absolutely amazing ! from the reception to the bars you will meet a warm, service minded and fun crew. The hotel is very good indeed but the staff is what makes it incredible :) Special thanks to Karima, Lida, Nico and Rossela - we already miss you guys !! the bathroom is really not nice. It is extremely small and the shower place floods the bedroom. Staying in a hotel on this level, we should not need to wipe the room's floor after taking a shower.
we've stayed just for 2 nights but they were absolutely amazing! the staff, the location and the swimming pool are great!
They charged the jacuzzi. And the bathroom floor was always wet due to the fact that water came out of the shower
Excellent staff, stunning setting and views, fantastic food, great outdoor/communal areas decor. Beautiful room terrace. For a spa hotel, children should not be allowed. They routinely destroyed the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere (One child plus respective parents yelling at any given time ruin the atmosphere). Also, the size and decor of the rooms was not at the same level as the outdoor/restaurant/pool areas, but was in a different style and lower quality, with relatively small rooms and tiny bathroom.
Everything, the friendly staff, the excellent service, cleaniliness of rooms, breakfast etc. From the moment we got our complimentary welcome drink untill we were dropped at the port we were treated like royals! Absolutely nothing!
Port transfer, location, breakfast, pleasant staff
My stay was fantastic...affordable and for what you get for the money is great! They picked me up from the dock...George and Rita were so welcoming and whenever you needed something or directions etc they were more than happy to help. The rooms were clean and so comfortable and private. The pool and view is also an extra on top of te rest...I highly reccomend
Rita's Place Hotel was such a great place. It has a boutique hotel feel with great service. The hotel is run by a couple that is so nice and helpful. I really felt at home. The hotel really is a great value too. I can't wait to go back. Nothing!
I really like the service, the staff was amazing. The pool side was very welcoming and the pool was great size and depth. I really enjoyed my stay at the rita's place.
The room was really nice and spacious, it was very well equipped and had a great terrace with awesome sea views. Also, the pool was great, and the staff was extremely helpful and nice.
The hotel is close to the port and main city (Chora) The room is very basic & poorly decorated. The beds were extremely hard. The hotel is next to the main road & there is a lot of noise for traffic. Parts of the hotel are still unfinished/under construction. The hotel manager claimed (unconvincingly) to have a problem with the credit card equipment in order to be paid in cash. Finally the machine was miraculously fixed.
Pool area was nice Very bare, not even water was provided for drinking. Everything was an extra charge.
Hospitality, very nice location, nice swimming pool, nice room, wifi, nice view, air conditioning in the room. Breakfast not included, little bathroom.
The Staff made me feel like at home. The location was great, and the price very, very nice. You have to try. Nothing
The location of the hotel is very very good, close to bustops and town square but not too close to be too loud. We were picked up from the port, as they were still trying to sell rooms there at reduced rates. Airconditioning was good The towels are very old and the size of hand towels. The bathroom floor was flooded when we arrived. There was an unexplained loud jackhammer sound from the roof every 6 minutes for the whole first night, it was obviuosly the hot water system because for the remaining 3 nights we had none. It is a party island and yet music and drinking on the balcony were not allowed after 10pm even though the music from the bars and clubs were louder than anything we had, we were threatened with fines of €60 for breaches of this. Locks on doors were very poor, cracked glass in doors.
Everything was perfect. Great staff. Great atmosphere. Close to everything.
George was fantastic from the minute we arrived we felt welcome. The owner of the hotel George picked us up fro mthe port himselt gave us 12 free beers and meat from easter sunday the day before... all throughout the week we were made to feel very welcome by everyone at the hotel and infact on the whole Island! i'll deffinatly be going back! Amazing!
The owners of the hotel were fantastic. Loved the location and the atmosphere. It was super clean and the best hotel of our trip. The food at the restaurant was delicious and very affordable. We had a beautiful sunset view from our large room terrace.
Everything was in perfect order, hotel stuff satisfied all requests I had. Location is a very strong point: it take five minutes to walk into Ios action, but the hotel offers quiet (not easy to find in Ios - Chora!)
Super-friendly manager/staff! A nice room with a balcony overlooking the pool area and the Ios Village.
The proximity to the hora was great and the staff were extremely friendly. The hotel also offered a great pool for the lazy traveller
Lovely hotel, great views of the town. Around a 10min walk into town down hill. Nice quiet area away from all the noise if the town. Hotel owners very friendly and helpful. No breakfast available. Walk back from town is all uphill.
Everything from the room to the staff, Thanks megahle!! Nothing at all
The staff were fantastic, as were their recommendations on tours and restaurants in the local area. The hotel is situated a short walk from town and is definitely one of the better looking hotels in the area. I would definitely stay in this hotel again! The bed was a little harder than used to.
The relaxed feeling around the awesome pool combined with the very friendly and welcoming staff. Room looked over the pool and was very nice and modern.
This family run hotel is friendly, helpful, and located in a prime position. The staff are obliging and always ready to be offering assistance when asked.
There was free hotel pick-up and drop-off to the port. The room was nice with a huge balcony. The owners were so friendly and there was free internet.
very friendly staff
Staff were hospitable and helpful, rooms were clean, location -decent. There was no shower curtain in the bathroom, so when one has a shower there would be water everywhere.
The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Exceeded expectations on making sure we were comfortable. The rooms could have been cleaned better and the showers need to be revamped.
web is presenting better picture than it is real condition.
The location as it was close to the port and the village while being away from the crowds. There was free internet for guests. My passport was withheld until I had paid the bill, air-conditioning costs an extra eur 5, the sound on the tv did not work, the toilet continued to run until the toilet tank float ball was manually lifted, and there was no bedding other than the 2 sheets per bed.
Wonderful owners and fantastic pool/bar area overlooking the bay & port area. Small bathroom & hot water runs out in a short amount of time.
Very good service, they helped us a lot, and a cute hotel. Big pool and a nice bar. Lies near the port. The bus stop is right outside the hotel. It took 15 minutes to walk to the centre and you had to walk on a long stair and it was heavy.
Fantastic views perfect location very friendly. breakfast was very limilted
Business run by a very nice man! He'll do anything he can to help you! Good location, always full of young people, you'll see often groups of girls too. Nice swimming pool. Booked a room for 90e and given a 70e room. When it was time to pay the lady said that I would pay 90 because of booking.com commissions: not fair. Never paid that extra on other hotels in Greece!! The cleaner opened my door while I was asleep in the late morning( forgot to lock...) to ask if I wanted the room serviced. Excuse me, I'm sleeping, shut that door and go!
everything, was great and very friendly. Will be there again!
The staff were friendly and helpful, even letting us choose between two rooms when we arrived! The pool area is fantastic with a pool side cafe. The bus stop to the town or the beach leaves from right outside the hotel. The hotel is not in the town and not in the port but half way in between. This is great for a quiet peaceful stay (the bus makes it easily accessible) but not so great for getting back from the town at 4am!
The family who own the hotel were so welcoming. The pool was really nice too.
We stayed in Homer's Inn for only two nights. It was a nice start of our roundtrip in the Cyclade Islands area. Very friendly welcome (transport from the port to the hotel), lovely swimming pool with good music and refreshments. Ios Island is very lively with a lot of young people. Our sons promised to come back...Panos and his parents try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
There was very nice pool facilities and it was close to the port and also a ten minute walk to the village(chora). Its close locality to both of these places was very convenient because we went to the village at night for party purposes and the port for dinner and food etc. The hotel staff were very amicable and helpful and the food at the poolside bar was delicious. I would recommend the hotel for any young people wanting a good base to party at night and chill by the pool by day. It also has a bus stop outside the hotel's door which brings you to the village or Mylopatas beach. It's a very modern hotel that is very good value. It also has free Wifi throughout the hotel which is very handy if you have portable electronic devices. The pool bar should remain open at night because it closed at 8 which was inconvenient
The staff were very helpful and spoke very good english. The hotel was well set up with free internet/computers and ferry information. The pool and bar were great considering it is a cheap hotel. They offered tranfsers to/from the port. There was a bus stop just outside for the ride uphill into town and then it was an easy walk downhill at the end of the night. Fantastic value for money!! Nothing to complain about. Basic Greek room and bathroom - as to be expected
Kindeness of owners. Room too small.
good place and nice staff
it was a good experience, it felt like a family place, conveniently located and all was clean and safe, i recomend this hotel nothing major just if we could use the internet a bit more freely!
Nice view, good location, helpful staff Prices in August are quite high ~90 eur, go in September ;)
the location, the staff, the pool... the bathroom and the bed are too small..
The staff was excellent. They were waiting for us at the port when we arrived and took us to the port to drop us off, as well as providing a mini-tour on the way back to the hotel and showing us where everything we needed to know was located. The pool and view from it are beautiful and the location is only a 10 minute walk from the city center and from the port restaurant area. The towels were like sandpaper and the free wi-fi frequently stopped working, sometimes for hours at a time.
The staff was fantastic, they made our stay very nice. It's a family run hotel and they are super friendly. They arranged transport and speetboot with discount for us. And they give good advice for restaurants.
The rooms were big and clean. Plus, we had a very nice pool with a pool bar. It was very relaxing. The food and the drinks at the bar were excellent. The hotel owners were really nice to us. Service was great; we had a problem with the shower but they fixed it right away. It was in walking distance to Chora (10 min). Our time there was amazing! There was nothing we didnt like.
-the location is incredible, it is about a 200-300m walk from the port where the ferry drops you. This is fantastic because you can avoid the hassle. It is only a 100m walk to the beah as well which is also right near a bar and some nice restaurants. The pool and poolside bar and restaurant at this hotel are incredible. There are alot of young people staying here (18-25yrs) when i was there. In particular, there were alot of young women. Very good scenery. -the owner was very rude to us upon arrival. our ferry from another island to this one was cancelled due to high winds, and as a result we arrived a day later at this hotel then we were menat to. because we had booked online, we were a day late for our booking, through no fault of our own. The owner was very rude (gave us death stares and spoke to us in a bad tone), even though we clearly explained there was nothing we could do as the enxt ferry didnt leave for the next day. I would not stay here again if this is how the owner treats all of her customers. I felt like telling her off. Very rude and bitchy. It impacted on our stay. Also, the room ie very very tiny and not comfortable. The bathroom is quite poor as well.
The owners were very kind and welcoming. The place had a wonderful charm to it and the pool was spectacular ! no
The staff were really friendly, the swimming pool is very nice, the bar and there is free internet wireless at comun areas. The hotel is in the port, and I think is better to be at Chora region, because is not so close to the town and there aren´t taxis in the street. The big thing is that you can arrive by foot from the boat, is really close, but is a little far (2 km) from Chora, the town of the city and were are the bars, clubs, restaurants.
The hotel staff were lovely and there was free wireless internet so I could sit on the deck or by the pool with my laptop. There is also a bar downstairs at the pool if you dont ant to leave but only makes basic meals. close to the port where all the boats come in. Think the walk to town is close by a secret stair way but I walked on the road not knowing this and it was 20+ mins up hill in the heat The room was small and bed a little dodgy for my liking and I only slept with a sheet because I didnt like the look of the blanket. I spent a lot of time in the room so wasnt too happy. also the bathroom wasnt the best and te room was small. Fine for anyone who needs a cheap room and wont be doing anything but sleeping. the pool was lovely and it is close to restaurants and right at the port
Very closed to the port
Location was brilliant - short distance from the Port& 10 mins walk to main town.Good size swimming pool & nice bar area This was supposed to be a 2 bed appartment but was 1bedroom with 3 single beds crammed into living area. Breakfast was very poor.
nice view for the front rooms old furniture, not value for money
Service was good (pick up at and transport to the port), Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was surprisingly good, even thought there was not oo much choice. The tv was pretty bad though (small and very bad reception.)
I had the most faboulous weekend of this year. It was very relaxing. The hotel is very nice and and recently renovated. My room had a very nice view and great facilities and service. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Great-quiet location, but at the same time vary near to everything. The view was amazing. The service was excellent. Owners are very nice people, that care about their guests. Great Pool..!!!! Nothing. Every thing was great. I will definitely book again next year.
Since we came later in the season the swim-up bar was closed. This would have been nice to know when we made our booking.
The room was clean and spacious. The pool was of adequate size and it was a quite hotel. Easy access to buses to the village (Hora)
great location near the city center, clean room and good breakfast.wifi on 1st floor
Although no-frills, this is a well-maintained, comfortable hotel with attentive owners. The rooms are clean, bright, in good working order, our shared balcony very beautiful. The pool area is large and the water comfortably warm. It's a fair walking distance to the beautiful Yialos beach (8 - 10 min), to the port (10 - 15 min), and a short bus ride from the port to the main town. We enjoyed our stay very much.
I would recommend this hotel to everybody! We did'nt want to leave this hotel, place and people. I left with tears in my heart and eyes... We where there from 02/09/2010 untill 05/09/2010. The hotel was clean and up to date. The area surrounding the hotel was nice and the views where stunning! But the best of al was the family who ownes the place.... They where so sweet! The mum and dad of Nikiforos are the sweetest people you can find... The owners Nikiforos and Lisa are the best! People who you want to drink a beer with in a bar and just chat about things... very helpfull and generous. I loved it and it has a place in my heart.. Going to visit them again soon! Greetings from rainy belgium Antwerp... βοριάς πήρε τα ρούχα μου κι ο νότος τ' άρματά μου και η καλή παρέα σας μου πήρε την καρδιά μου. αλέχανδρος
Hotel run by lovely family, can't do enough for you!! We stayed in this hotel 20years ago and took our 12 & 14 year old boy's, they too loved it, the Pool is fab!! We picked again because of it's quite location-we wanted a good night's sleep!! Hope to return soon if the euro improve's.
Really good hotel staff, (including willing to help manager), quiet place, clean room, swimming pool is small, but ok - can be alternative to the beach. Closest beach is not that far (walking distance), and the bus going every 10 min (from the port, 10 min by foot) to the Chora and Mylopotas beach give the options. The room was small and there was a few places to place the luggage. No privacy on the balcony. Within the price range though one should say that this is acceptable.
Very helpful and kind owners who gave us lots of useful information. Rooms were comfortable, clean and well equipped. Good breakfast. Nice quiet location.
Very friendly staff, they asked us several times if we whanted to go whit them if they drove to Ios town anyway. Very quiet location. A little far from Ios town by foot, but the taxi was cheap.
The hotel staff was very considerate and help me in any thing I need. The swimming pool was very nice.
Perfect location, well equipped hotel and moreover the perfect recipe included a warm welcome and supportive family team!
Outstanding customer service, very friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere and homey. Really enjoyed our time
Incredible service : the manager, Niki, is so nice !!!! He is willing to help you with any demand, and does it so well ! He found us a car, knowing that we didn't find one by ourselves; he gave us rides anywhere we needed to go; wonderful breakfasts served by his lovely wife and daughter. The room was spotless, delighting balcony and swimming pool... Everything was perfect, and for the best price we've ever found in the Cyclades !!! We deeply recommend it !
