Reviewed September 6, 2012

We really enjoyed our 4 day stay in Livadia at Apollo Studios. The location is very good for all places in Livadia, particularly the bakery and supermarkets, great for self-catering. The studio was a good size with modern and functional bathroom and a nice balcony. There's also a roof terrace. The studio was cleaned daily.

Andreas and Irina were perfect hosts: friendly and available; informative; willing to go the extra mile; and completely unintrusive when you're just sat on your balcony and want to watch the world go by.

Would recommend very highly.

Livadia itself has long and beautiful but not-too-challenging walks, either along the coastline, through rugged terrain past a fortress, or an abandoned ghost town. The paths lead to beautiful, desolate and hardly-used beaches, eg: Lethra. Take a hat and a packed lunch, Rhodes beaches these ain't, but were the highlight of our island hopping.

We met Andrea on the ferry boat going to Tilos from Rodhes on 05-04-2012
He offer us to stay in is Apollo Studio and we accept, because we dont have any booked accomodation. On the Livadia port there was Irina, a very nice young girl-friend of Andrea, and toghether in two minutes, by walk, we go to the Studio.
The room was very beautiful and clean. The bed was decorated with a very nice towel creation. We stay only one nigth but we recomend this place also for the natural feeling with the young Owners of the Studio.
The housing complex is a new renovation with a very good panorama from the private balcony or from the top terrace.
Many tanks to Andrea and Irina for their ospitality and simpaty.
We hope to have the possibility to return an we recommend everybody to book this Studio. If you go to Tilos dont forghet to ask of Mr. Giacomo and is Wife.
Giacomo was a teacher during last word war and speek a very good Italian; please give to them our best regards.
If you like to walk visit the Lethra beach, and you will see a wonderfull panorama.

Room Tip: Very good accomodation !!!

We arrived in Tilos in mid August with no idea where to stay and found this nice young man at the port offering us to stay in his Apollo Studios, we trusted his smiling face and followed him: Andrea is in fact a really nice guy and with his sweet partner Irina runs the Apollo Hotel: the place is nice and clean, small studios with fridge, kitchinette (complete with plates and cutlery), bathroom and a balcony, it is possible to use the washing machine at a small fee. Complete the place a nice roof terrace from where you can see the whole of the little bay of Livadia (by the way Livadia is a really nice laid back and relaxing place, one of the best places to stay in Dodecanese Islands). It is close to everything. Choose the studio 3, it has the best view!
Andrea is really nice and helpful and will give you suggestions on what to do in the island (he suggested us to go to Micro Chorio for the annual festival: wonderful experience!). and he will bring your luggage at the ferry when you leave, which we have appreciated! Highly recommended!

My wife and I had four nights on Tilos after being in Symi. We called and booked a couple of days ahead and Andreas met us and other guests at the ferry for the short hop back to the apartments.

He was extremely welcoming, giving us maps and a traditional Greek 'welcome biscuit'.

The room was immaculately clean and everything has been fitted very recently. Cupboards, sink, cups, cutlery, fridge and little cooker all in great order. Bed comfy and every day we were greeted on our return by a towel shaped into an animal - sort of laundry topiary. Hilarious - an amusing touch. Rooms were spotless and the very friendly Andreas and Ira cleaned it immaculately every day.

My wife's a light sleeper but with the windows closed, the roll down blind in place and curtains drawn, our room was quiet and dark. Slept really well.

Our balcony was sadly not overlooking the sea but there's a terrific and huge roof terrace where you can drink a sundowner, see the sea and watch dozens of Elenora's Falcon circle on the evening thermals with a great mountain back drop. Stunning.

There's a small book exchange downstairs and some really helpful maps of the island you can borrow.

The location is great for the beach and restaurants around town. Then again Livadia isn't a huge place.

Most of all it is the warmth and friendliness of Andreas and Ira that made the stay so pleasant. On our last day we were catching an afternoon ferry back to Rhodes and they stored our bags and let us use their shower after we got back from the beach and before we caught the ferry. Many thanks!

A great trip and we would definitely return to the island (which is fab) and Apollo Studios.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with sea view. Rooms over looking the 'main road' means you hear all the loca...

We stayed here a few nights and the place is great. Close to everything and a great view from the roof top patio.The owners are very nice and having our laundry done was an unexpected bonus. We loved our towel creation!

The owner contacted me immediately after I sms:ed him while staying at Kalymnos. He arranged us a nice top floor room with a seaview. This is a great place to stay for exploring Tilos. Not far away from the beach and taverns. We prepared our breakfast at the rooms kitchenette, enjoying it at the balcony. Transportation from and to the harbour.

In totally agreement with the other revues, we ended our two weeks vacation in the Dodecanese islands at Apollo Studios in Tilos - and that was just the right choice.
We have had the most fantastic week in Tilos - in a wide extend thanks to the young couple Andreas and Ira, who are running the place.

The level of both service and cleaning of the place is outstanding - we (a family of four) have never experienced such service on our trips before. As many others wee too will emphasize the towel-art - thanks for all the decorations :-).

If you want a vacation on a charming little island,in a quiet, but centrally located studio/apartment where smile and laughter is present all the time from two thoughtfull and cherfull young hosts that have this very special ability to make their guests feel unique, welcome and comfortable - go there and enjoy.

Thanks for an unforgetable week.....we´ll be back

Mikkel, Jeppe, lars and Lulu

PS And of course Andreas and Ira picked us up at the harbour at our arrival and took our luggage there again when we left
