This hotel is a wonderful choice for your stay in Ios. When we booked the hotel, it stated that it offers a pick up service from the ferry port so we contacted the hotel through direct messaging on ‪booking.com‬ and they replied within minutes. On arrival in Ios, Alexandro was there waiting for us to arrive. He went above and... More

My friend & myself stayed at the Golden Sun for 2 nights. The hotel is run by Alexandro and his family, who are all so friendly and welcoming. Alexandro even took us to the port when we were leaving. The rooms are nice & clean. It is very relaxing sitting out on the balcony watching the sunset. The pool is... More

Loved this hotel! Stayed here with 4 girl friends. Alex was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the Island with great advice. View was amazing. Room was clean. Only a 15min walk to the main part of town. Bus stop right across the street from the Hotel. Highly recommend!

We loved it. The location is great (within walking distance of port and town), rooms very clean and more modern looking than the photos on our booking website, amazing views from the balcony (and or pool area) and amazing service. We couldn't find a single flaw in our stay with Golden Sun. Definitely would stay again and recommend to friends... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and would stay again. Great value for money. A few minutes walk from the port. The walk to the village is about 10 minutes and is up hill but there is a bus stop right outside the hotel that goes every hour and takes you to the village for €1.80. Taxi home at night... More

We were met at the ferry by our hosts and driven the short drive up the hotel to the lovely hotel. We were then given a quick guide of the island and shown short cuts to both the port and chora town. The room was comfortable and clean although the shower did leak a bit but it soon dried. The... More

I found Golden Sun Hotel through the internet and I checked the Tripadvisor customer reviews before reserving a room. Well, after a week at Golden Sun I assure you that everything good I read about this family hotel is true. An ideal example of what Greek hospitality should be all about: warm, helpful individuals, with the right balance between professionalism... More

After arriving late and bewildered at the port. We asked the tourist centre for directions. We were then whisked away by the most pleasant owner/operator of a hotel I have ever met. Alexandro told us places to go, how to get there, where to eat and answered any question we could have thrown at him. A family run business that... More
