“A Marvellous Place to Stay in Kos Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Alexis his Wife & Daughter Made our stay in Kos very special! their attention & easygoing manner eased our travel stresses as we had been on the road for some time & Lucy the kitten bounding all over the place added to the home away from home atmosphere, a special mention to the breakfasts home cooked Fetta omelette & home made Marmalades with Greek Yogurt Fantastic! Alexis (the owner) handled all our rental Car,Bike & Travel (to Bodrum Turkey) bookings @ competitive rates, so all we did was enjoy his tips on where to go & how to get there, if you stay any where else (in my opinion) you are wasting time money & energy better used enjoying your holiday!

A very good family-run hotel in Kos Town. The location is good, not far from the centre and close to the sea but not too busy or noisy an area. The family who run the hotel could not be more helpful or friendly. Very strongly recommended

Alexis and his wife are the perfect friendly welcoming hosts (not forgetting Lucy the cat!). The hotel is very close to the sea and the historic centre. Comfortable room with lovely balcony and we can't recommend the delicious breakfasts highly enough!

It was a suggestion of a guide and we were surprised by the attention of Mr. Alexis and his family. In addition to offering us a good room for an affordable price, he also gave us tips for tour in the island. His family works in the same hotel and they are all very organized and thoughtful. They make a delicious marmalade breakfast and we see them always with a smile on their faces.
The location of the hotel is very easy and left us with a great impression of Greece and Kos! Really a pleasure!

The hotel is family owned and run and that is its real value proposition. Alexis is superb, efficient but friendly and very helpful. It is all so unfussy and yet satisfactory from the booking right through the entire experience.
We had a medical crisis with one of our party and they arranged for a doctor and followed progress with more care and concern than you would ever receive in the usual run of hotels. It was almost as though one of his own family had taken sick. That says a great deal about the standard of the hotel and their client care.
By the way, the medical service here in Greece was excellent too, better that we would have got in the UK on a Friday evening, they were quick to respond, very professional and effective too. Top marks to Greece!

The rooms are small, but very clean, air conditioned and with all the necessary facilities. They do not do evening meals but opposite is a small and efficient and satisfactory restaurant. The breakfasts were of that great Greek standard and very relaxed.

You will not beat Afendoulis for satisfaction and value for money.

Than you Alexis, you and your family, we shall not forget you and you wish you every continued success.

The hotel is really more than I could have expected. All the positive reviews are 100% correct. The cleanliness, the calm atmosphere of the hotel and hospitality of Alexis' and his family made sure I will definitely stay here the next time I visit. Alexis was very helpful with advice what to see around the island. If you are looking for cosy, clean, quiet hotel close to the center – Afendoulis has it all.

A great find just a few blocks from the hustle and bustle of the waterfront, and town centre. Quiet tree lined street with a beautiful jasmine hedge in front. Family run by Alexis, his wife and daughter who were charming and very helpful. We rented bikes from a place a block away for very little--best way to get around, bike lanes and trails throughout the town and environs. Great breakfasts with home made jams and marmelades.
