“nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012 via mobile

nice place run by an greek american. Clean rooms which lacked a bit of heart but were nevertheless fully equiped. The owner forgot to pick us the port but excused himself with free ouzo, so no problem... Great breakfast and good advise on restaurants and beaches.

We loved our stay at Aeolos Hotel so much we are coming back again this year 2012. Position is great. Stan and his family are so nice and helpful. The rooms are large, clean and tasteful decorated. Breakfast is a treat, fresh fruit with amazing Greek yoghurt drizzled with local honey, freshly cooked boiled eggs etc....we loved our stay.

Well, we had read the comments and we had high standards.
We were really disappointed from the 100euros/night room in September, in terms of "value for money".
The owners are friendly and try to make sure you will have a nice time on Koufonissi, the garden is great and the breakfast was average..
The squeeky bed and the inclining matress were really annoying and made our sleep uncomfortable. The A/C was so noisy that I remembered the first A/C I had back in the late 80's. The balcony was surrounded by plants and flowers and you could not stay out due to the dozens of bees.
Other than that, the building looks like new, the bathroom was pretty good, it was clean and peaceful.
It surely did not worth 100euros/night in Sept. In our opinion, if you want to have such high prices on this island where there are rooms at about half price, then you need to pay attention to every detail. Otherwise, cheaper rooms, which are equally clean, tidy and peaceful can be a much more comfortable and better value for money, even if they look simpler and less luxurious.

aeoloshotel, Owner at Aeolos Hotel, responded to this review, July 29, 2012
Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We try to improve our services every year and every review is helpful, even negative ones. We are sorry that the A/C in your room was loud but unfortunately being on a small island and getting it fixed in a timely fashion is very difficult. The beginning of this year however we did service all of our air conditioning units to ensure that everything works correctly. We also apologize for the amount of bees that were surrounding the garden this is due to the fact that our garden has many aromatic plants which attract bees. We did however trim many of our plants this year to maybe eliminate many of the unwanted bees. In regards to prices, we believe that for the services we offer we are able to maintain this price, which we have for the past 3 years. We are sorry that you were not satisfied at our hotel and hope that in the future we can improve your stay here with us.

My wife's and my favorite stay of our Greece trip!

Great value, rooms very clean, entire place kept up extremely well. Walking around Koufonissia there may be a few other places worthy of checking out but I wouldn't bother. This was perfect for the island and exactly what we were looking for. Location was ideal because it was between town and the path to all of the beaches. Breakfast was delicious -- enough variety for a many day stay.

The owners were the nicest people we met on the trip. They are Greek/Italian natives that run the place during vacation season and head back home to the U.S. during offseason. You can tell they pour their heart and soul into it, keeping it clean, being responsive to customers, constantly upgrading (revised their wifi and added full cable channels while we were there and flat screens are probably in the works -- not that I want to sit in our room in front of the TV while in Koufonissia but hey). They told us the best places to go on the island (Pori Beach, Captain Nicholas [restaurant], etc).

If you are visiting this island, book a room here. Period.

Koufonissia itself is an island that warrants a visit with great beaches, beautiful outlooks and quiet little town and port. But AEOLOS Hotel is simply worth the trip to experience. The rooms are outstanding, the pool, the family that owns and runs the place all are the best you can imagine!

Our stay in Aeolos hotel with our two sons and their girlfriends was a dream during two weeks in August 2010.
Aeolos hotel is a very beautiful hotel, so splendid with a magnificient decoration, and good located! The family who has this hotel is so warm, nice, friendly , obliging and professionnal..
The manager loves his island and his job and he likes to give you the best...And he is very attentive because I have problem with my hback and he drove me to the doctor.
This hotel is authentic in Cyclade's style and it's what we loved...White, blue so sweet and relaxing
Flowers, view, very nice and pretty swimmingpool, large, clear and confortable rooms with fridge, safe , all is perfect!
And what we like is the quiet...No noise, no music, no agitation or animation
It's perfect to have real holidays
We are delighted and we will come again, it's sure!
Koufonissia is a paradise!!!
We thank everybody from Aeolos family
