My friends and I stayed here mid November when the island was quite quiet. Hermes was so clean with excellent wifi and the best owners. Beautiful views and a short walk to town. The walk to the beach is short as well, fair warning, there are a few stairs on the way back up, so if you have an injury...

Great hotel for the price. The staff was very nice and would try and help us as much as they can. Loved the pool area with the view of the ocean and bar. It's about a 10 minute walk to all of the popular bars in Ios. It is definitely a party island.

Daytime staff were rude and hesitant to help us at all, very unfriendly and a bit arrogant. The rooms were down about 50 stairs and staff were reluctant to help my friend with her bag. The room had zero kitchen facilities besides a fridge, not even a kettle or a cup or spoon. The bathroom stank of sewerage and the...

Stayed at Hermes Hotel for a few days with some girlfriends aged 27-30. For anyone who isn't aware, Ios is a party island so lots of younger travellers looking to party. Location: The hotel is situated halfway between the beach and night clubs/bars. It's ideal to rent a scooter or some form of vehicle as it can be challenging finding...

Hermes is well situated half way between the town and the beach, a 10 minute walk each way. The accommodation has AMAZING views over the water and is brilliant value. The rooms are clean, Wi-fi is excellent, and it has a great atmosphere. We loved it and plan to return soon.

Great rooms, brilliant service but best of all is the view! The pool is a great place to hang out and meet people. Very reasonably priced! They pick you up from the port- which is perfect.Highly recommend Hermes Hotel and looking forward to going back next summer!!

Loved the pool, loved the views, loved the rooms, loved the experience. This was our first stop on a Greek Island adventure. Really liked visiting the pool and relaxing while looking at the vast views. I wasn't too impressed with the hotel's restaurant though. The food wasn't the best, and the service in the restaurant wasn't anything to write home...

We booked Hermes after reading many great online reviews. We wanted a bit of luxury on our last few nights before heading home. Prior to this we stayed in cheap backpackers and shared rooms. On arrival we were unimpressed, to get to our room we had to carry our bags down a long run of stairs. The room was big...

We did not expect Ios to be such a party Island where teenagers only travel to get drunk and sleep their days off. The hotel was a good deal as far as the transfer from /to the port and the nice view. The rooms look like an orphanage and the were infested by flies! No matter if we locked the...
