“Relaxing holiday”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Just returned 09-05-13 from Hippocrates, first time on KOS.
Hotel was good value for money, the inside rooms and public areas were always clean as was the pool area; first impressions on arrival were good.
All of the staff were always very pleasant, polite and helpful.
The restaurant was light and airy and we never had to queue for food; the food itself was basic but always something for everybody; there was always plenty of it; staff constantly checking and refilling,(loved the bacon at breakfast). A good point was that at lunch and dinnertimes the drinks eg soft, red/white wine & lager were self serve; also a nice touch was a complimentary bottle of water in room on arrival.
We had a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday; ideal for couples.
Entertainment limited, also little around hotel still Kos town only about two and a half kilometres away. Plenty of cycle/scooter/quad/buggy hire places by hotel.
Would suggest when booking ask for a high room (only three storeys) with pool/sea views.
Once again we had a smashing good value holiday.

Room Tip: High floor (third storey)) pool/sea view

My partner booked The Maris Suite but stayed at the Hippocrates Hotel for 7 nights with my daughter, her partner & her 15 month old baby & we had a great time.

We were a little disappointed that the other hotels were not open until the end of April-May but we found plenty to do anyway & managed to view most of the fabulous sister Hotels.

The hotel itself & our rooms were very clean but not so keen on the garden view which we had. The staff in the hotel were helpful & friendly, especially the animation team who treated my grandson like royalty.

The restaurant was basic but food was very good & there was plenty variety to choose from, tables could do with tablecloths on the evenings for that touch. There's just one bar adjoin to hotel & pool, could do with a second.

Easy walking to the other Kipriotis Hotels & Kos Town. Weather was good but got even better towards the end of April.

The laminated flooring on the first floor landing was very very noisy when people are on their way to their rooms in the evenings...& the cockerel was very noisy early hours of the morning. The children's outdoor play area could be very nice but needs a touch of paint.

Value for money & would recommend it.

Room Tip: I suggest getting a room away from the lifts & the landing area.

We stayed at the Hippocrates at the middle of April and we were most impressed by the hotel. The food on offer was varied and of good quality and we never had to queue. It was quiet because it was the start of the season, but we did not want to take part in organised entertainment. We would highly recommend hiring bikes, as it is a long walk into Kos Town, but a beautiful flat cycle ride by the sea. Bikes were very reasonable from the shop by the hotel and it is fun to cycle mainly on paths to Tigaki or the Thermal Beach in the other direction. I can imagine that in the summer the bar must be very busy and the pool area would get crowded, but we were very happy with the bar service and drinks while we were there. It was a lovely personal touch that the hotel manager shook our hands and thanked us as we got on the bus for the transfer back to the airport!

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor with a sea view. There was noise from some kind of fan when the k...

I stayed at the Hippocrates at the end of April and like some other reviewers I have mixed feelings.

At the time of booking it was sold as being part of a complex consisting several hotels with use of the facilities at the other buildings, specifically use of the 5 differently themed restaurants in the Kipriotis Village. As it was the first week of the season, none of the hotels were open and so we were confined to the Hippocrates.

That aside, once we accepted we had only the Hippocrates to use it is really a pretty decent hotel.

The rooms are not luxury but adequate, clean and maid service excellent.

The bar is ok, the staff do their best but it does get busy particularly late on. There is only one bar though and it was getting annoying when it was full of kids late in the evening as they had nothing else to do. Hopefully that won’t be an issue when the sister hotels are open. There is a disco/club on site that is open until 3am too. Its nothing special and the drinks are expensive but for those who want to stay up late without going into Kos town it does the job.

The food is ok, not great but you won’t starve. There is a big enough selection that you’ll always find something to eat. Breakfast in particular is worth getting up for.

Entertainment, well the animation staff are great and make you feel right at home. Valantino in particular is a great host and never stops working dawn til night making all the guest feel welcome. Unfortunately despite the best efforts of Valantino and his team to get people involved, they had very little facilities or staff to work with. I assume the hotel normally relies on the facilities in the sister hotels but as above they were not available when we went.

On the whole, I cannot complain for what we paid, it is a decent well run hotel with a nice pool and bar. Once the other hotels are open (if use of their facilities is honoured) you would struggle to complain.

Booked the 5* Panorama but got the 4* Hippocrates because the season hadn't quite started. Very clean and tidy, nice reception area and friendly staff. Rooms ok with good maid service. Restaurant good size with reasonable choice of fare. The Bar was probably the biggest let down - it could get quite busy owing to the fact that the rest of the complex was still closed, getting served could take as long as 15/20 mins at times, with other guests just breezing up and getting served first!! It was probably just a temporary situation until the rest of the complex opened, but it was enough to take the shine off our evenings enjoyment. Psalidi itself doesn't have much to offer in terms of alternative entertainment and some evenings it took a taxi ride to nearby Kos town to find it. We used the sun beds on the beach for a day or 2 only to find out they were only free to guests staying at the panorama and Maris,but NOT the Hippocrates even though its part of the same complex! They tried to charge us 6 euro for the day.

We had some apprehension after reading the reviews for this hotel, it was our first visit to Kos, though not to Greece and after staying there for a week at the end of April 2013 it seems that some people just like to moan - about everything!

Guests were complaining that there was no entertainment, I disagree, just watching the other guests was more entertaining than anything the hotel staff could have put on...

It was the start of the season so across the island everything was very quiet which is just the way we like it, we hired bikes and cycled, caught the local buses a few times and walked into Kos town returning to relax on the hotel beach or around the pool.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hippocrates, the hotel was kept immaculately clean, our room was fine, staff were wonderful and the variety of food available at every mealtime excellent, you'll never go hungry at Hippocrates !

We are a family of 6 and stayed here Mid April 2013. We have mixed feelings for the Kipriotis Hippocrates. Basically the Kipriotis hotels here are a group of hotels all bunched together - The Panorama, Maris suites, Aqualand, Village and the Hippocrates. There is an overbooking policy so the hotels will keep being booked and you will find yourself put wherever it is convenient. Unfortunately in the start of the season all the hotels aside from the Hippocrates and most of the amenties including beach bar were closed.
Now The Hippocrates is a lovely hotel. The Ai food is good with plenty of choice, rooms are basic but comfortable. Ai Drink's are standard local quality (unless you pay for premium),however as a family with young children we booked the Maris Suites where there is a children's club and apparently live evening entertainment. Now being put in the Hippocrates meant there was Zero children's entertainment other than a 25-30 min recording at 8.30pm for smaller children to dance to with a member of the animation team, occasionally the odd movie played at 9.30pm on a laptop on a projection tv (this was stopped due to a seminar taking place), and there was a good children's play area called funland (however this is not a kids club). We found as a result of the lack of entertainment it quite stressful and hard work with our children with no respite just to have an hour here or there to relax - clearly not what we had booked for as a family.To be fair to there was a lot of complaints from people without children who were just completely bored with nothing to do Essentially the animation team had a game of table tennis, darts or bowls to keep people entertained but really who wants to do that on holiday? There really was no live stuff in the evenings.. Staff wise Despina in the restaurant would make time to teach the children the odd word of Greek and was always pleasant and smiling. She is a real asset to to the hotel and i really hope management appreciate how good an employee she really is. We have mixed feelings of our stay here.. as i said. On one hand the price was great, i can't fault the hotel, the food, the drink or the majority of staff but the week really was let down by poor entertainment and occasionally excessively long quests of 10-15 mins for a drink at night. It is worth noting also that on our last full day the Kipriotis village opening up and we were allowed to use the pool and slide there, however our children were not allowed to use the Ai drinks bar at the kipriotis village which i thought did not make sense when it's a good 5-10 mins walk to get back to the Hippocrates. I thought the wifi access was frankly very very expensive at about 50+ euros a week and i know we are not watch TV but really? Only one English speaking channel and a fuzzy analogue signal on most others? This is the digital age and your in Europe in an apparent 4 star hotel. Overall i would say this place is more suited to mature couples who want a bit of quite. The others hotels here such as the Kiprioties village are definately more suited to families.

Room Tip: If you do end up staying here with children, the first floor (rooms 135 etc) have balconies that ope...
