We stayed here 4 nights in mid-Sept. and such nice people. Apt was great with tons of room and could sleep 4 or 5 people. Fully equipped kitchen with large frig and even a small oven. Great location--we could walk a short distance to everything including a large super market.We would certainly stay here again. Rate was 35euros per night.... More

Hello! I am Stan from Norway. When my wife, Torild, took me to the beautiful island of Patmos in 1988, it was love at first sight! That is why we have been visiting the island every year since that lucky moment! And not only in the summertime,,,We have also been celebrating Christmas, New Year and Easter together with our Greek... More

We came late on the ferry from Rhodes and the chef of Hotel Effie picked us up from the port. The hotel is not quite on the harbour front, but in easy walking distance. The people were friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and comfortable by Greek standards. Nothing spectacular, yet satisfying and at a good price. They also rent... More

If you are looking for a very clean, very close to beach about 50 meters only, and with people with good mood to serve you and help you with breakfast with fresh fruit, local own production and spectacular views towards the monastery of Patmos and the beach, then what you require.

After one night we decided to stay two more nights! Very cheap room with seesight but the best thing was the hostess who was very friendly and helpfull. The breakfast wasn't special but good. They bring you some fuit, bread, spreads, an egg, cheese and you can eat in silence. So much better than a big breakfast buffet.

We've been coming to Greece for 30 years and for us, hotels like the Effie epitomize simple Greek hospitality. For 35€, our room had a balcony with a view of the bay. The room was a nice size for this class of hotel, it was very clean,the bathroom was good-sized, and the air conditioner was quiet and efficient, plus there... More

We stayed here with a group of students. The rooms were sufficient. The location was good. The breakfast was meager. But the young man at the desk spoke English and was very helpful. The island is beautiful and we loved walking all over it. I do think we were here out of season since some stores were not open.

I have stayed in EFFIE hotel for 3 nights. Location is quite good as it is just 5 minutes walk from the port. Room is really simple, clean and just for a sleep, as there is nothing attractive to keep you inside this hotel for more hours. Eleni, the manager of the hotel is kind and helpful, however in the...

Pros: Quite location at Skala near the port, cheap, clean. Cons: Poor breakfast (who's gonna find the honey), noisy room doors, personnel with no professional behaviour nervus and bad-tempered.

We needed a place to put up our feet during a one-day stay on Patmos - we came in on the morning ferry and were returning to the ferry at midnight. It was February and nearly impossible to find a hotel that wasn't closed for the season- but a travel agent came through with this one. For that, we're thankful.... More
