The owner was sharp, abrupt. Never gave me a receipt after paying cash, my room upon arrival had the previous guests pubic hairs on the floor. The room was badly cleaned, towels not put back to have a shower you had to sit and all the water was all over the bathroom so you had to clean it up. The... More

Spent 5 days in May 2015 at this hotel. Clean, quiet, walking distance from the port, town and lo cal beach. The owners and crew of the facility extremely helpful. There is no elevator so, if you have issues with stairs plan for a ground level room. There is no safe box in the room either. The shower is very... More

Nice hotel in good location. Clean and functional - breakfast OK. Owner and family friendly, stayed 6 nights. Great sea view from balcony a convenient base from which to explore Patmos. It was quiet as slightly set back from sea front.

The owner of the hotel can pick you up and bring you back to the port if you can inform him beforehand. Nothing specially wrong or good about the hotel but you definitely get what you need from a hotel. Motorcycle noise is a problem of Patmos, not specific to this hotel. But still can affect your sleep quality. Breakfast... More

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
