The Hotel and Studios is located on the Mylopotas beach (great beach by the way)! The accomodation and the hospitality/service was amazing. "value for money" in its best. Very clean, very big, very quite and relaxing, and very close to the beach. the town is 10 minutes away by bus (which is very frequent and has bus stop 50meters away) or car. We have visited Ios twice before, will certainly go again and will surely stay again at Island House.

Excellent, if you don’t mind lack of soap (just a tiny bar provided enough for washing your hands only, once!) So bring your own soap, body wash and shampoo.
Hope you are not unlucky like our own 4-person family that was to be moved to a smaller room in the back, older building, in which our late teen age daughters had to stay in a corridor like space, when another party got sick! We left early the 3rd day.
It depends what you ask for in life and what you are prepared to pay for as well as how many places you’ve been at and what kind of a traveler you are.
120 euro per night for a room (no breakfast) is way too much for an island like Ios and the room and services (standards) received in this hotel, ehhrrr, rooms-to-let establishment I should say. I’d rather spend a week in a Maldives 4-star resort.
Mr. Nikiforos is the best asset of this family business.

Room Tip: If you book, ask to stay in a top floor sea-facing room only in the front building.

Dear Mr. Theo,

thank you for your review for Island house!
We would like just to mentioned that when you booked the room we had informed you about the movement in the main hotel because the apartment in island house studios was available only for the first 2 nights and you had agreed to make the change of the room. We know that we supposed to move you in a top floor apartment but unfortunatelly another guest got sick and the doctor said that she does not have to move. So we kindly asked you to change into another apartment which is not upstairs but is totally new and renovated this year and it has the same facilities as the upstairs apartment, but you did not even wait to clean the room and you did not see how was the bedrooms. We could understoond that you may did not like it because it has views to the pool and to the garden which was not in our agreement but because the lady was ill and we could not change her room it was not possible to give you the upstairs apartment for your last night of your reservation. Furthermore, you decided to leave and we did not charge you for thr 3rd night which normally had to be charged through the policy of the hotel and we let you to make the check out of the room later of 12:00, which is normally the check out time is. The price was 120 euro because it was high season and you knew that it was without breakfast because the apartment has all the facilities you need to prepare your own meals. For that reason we do not put in the rate of the apartment, breakfast prices, because all the guests who book this type of rooms like to have self catering facilities.
We believe that it is not so oblective to say an opinion for an apartment if you don not even took a look in the interior of the apartment.
We wish you all the best for your family and we will always try to make our best to satisfy our guests and improve the hotel.

Kind regards
Frangoulis Nikiforos

We arrived there by our own car but the hotel owner was just there at the port ready to pick us up anyway. We experienced a very warm welcome with coffees, sweets etc.
We had a nice studio with a nice bedroom and a large lounge. The bedroom had a beautiful iron bed and the lounge had two more beds, a kitchenette, table etc. The bathroom was also large enough. Something very important and useful is the fact that the room is airy and cool, even without the air-conditioning.
A large balcony had an unobstructed view to Mylopotas beach which is some 100 meters away. We liked the fact that the part of the beach right in front of the hotel was the best one according to our taste: deep, clear and cool sea, blonde, thin sand and no sunbeds, umbrellas and stuff. The main part of the hotel has a nice pool, too.
The beach of Mylopotas is very long, very wide and it never seems full of people - unless you prefer the sunbed-crowded parts in front of the beach bars. Staying in Mylopotas is a wise choice since it's quiet while it's very easy to go to Chora by bus (there's one every 10 minutes) or even on foot (20 minutes of walking).
In general, it's a very good selection even if it's a little pricey during high season.

Room Tip: Rooms in the main part of the hotel have direct access to the swimming pool. Rooms in the "sec...

This year was our third year staying at the Island House. If you are looking for quaint with all the amenities of a modern hotel, this is your perfect match.

From the moment you arrive at the port, you are met by Frangoulis with a welcome sign, and air conditioned van to transport you to their family run hotel. Upon arrival, you are greeted by the rest of the family, Frangoulis lovely wife Dimitra, and friendly daughters Ana and Margarita. You enjoy a drink on the house while one of the family members explains the island to you in detail (places to see, where to eat, the best beaches to visit, and how to get around with Ios' wonderful public transit). They also told us to pick anything we like from their garden, and made themselves available whenever we had a question, going out of their way to make us feel welcome.

The hotel Is full of charm from its white structure with brightly colored doors and windows, to the breezy poolside cabana. It is set just off the main road and best beach in Ios so you can enjoy peace and tranquility after a long day or night out. It caters to both families and young travelers alike. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, and most importantly, very clean. It is 5 minutes walk to the beach, restaurants, cafes, live music, and the bus stop to the chora. No matter the time of day, you are met by smiles, hellos, and feelings of genuineness from Frangoulis, Dimitra, Ana and Margarita. They truley make your experience in Ios.

We look forward each year to our stay at Island House, as it boasts perfection in our minds of the perfect vacation spot.

Thank you very much Island House, we will see you soon :)

The family at Island House Apartments made our stay perfect! From picking us at the port to droping us off a few days later, they would go out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Not that it required much work. The Apartments are almost as close to the beach as you can get, and the pool is great itself! The suites were clean and clearly well look after. Again, I cannot say enough about how amazing the family that runs it is!

Could not have imagined a bettter place to stay in Ios. Friendly service, clean rooms and amazing location :)

Room Tip: The Apartment suites are worthwhile for their sunset views and kitchenettes!

Meadows of a magnificent beach, you will be for the peace in this charming hotel, where the swimming pool is very pleasant. The owners are really very kind and always available. The access to the city is also practical with a bus which spends quite the hours in 50m of the hotel.
Chambers are spacious and very attractive with each an individual terrace or you can eat in front of the sunset. The housework is made every day, it's perfect.

Room Tip: Apartments are more for the peace than the hotel which he to be meadows of the swimming pool.
