Reviewed August 4, 2013

We stayed one week at this hotel. We got a room with no view. Asked for another room, but didn't get any. At first they told us to ask the day after, and the day after...till they stopped telling us that we could move. Actually they stopped talking to us. And to others too.
Bed was not good. It was old, and the bathroom was also kind of bad, BUT it was clean there. But not much warm water. Good news is that there was free internetconnection and aircondition. That was very good!

The breakfast was really bad. One man worked there. But he was so afraid for giving us food, so it was empty at the table most of the time. He just walked in and out of the kitchen, came out with two glasses, four plates, and maybe if we were lucky he brought some food too. People was waiting and waiting for their breakfast. We texted Startour, so they talked to them. Was a little bit better the last few days. But not at all good.

I will not recommend this hotell to anyone I'm afraid.
The atmosphere there was really bad. Sorry to say but it's true.
Would love to go to Kos again, but then I would def. stay at another hotel.

Kos bay hotel is a very cosy place to stay. just outside of Kos town it is an easy distance away from the historic town centre. It is also just outside the marina where you can view lovely boats and yachts from hotel balcony in most rooms.
The rooms were very comfy with free air conditioning to cool you down in the night as well as a lovely shower and bathroom. Each room has a spacious balcony where you can relax in the warm summer sun of the island.
Last but not least the two ladies down at reception were nothing but beautiful and polite and offered nothing but good advise about what they thought the best beaches and restaurants were. They even taught me some simple greek words to help me with the locals.
Overall a great, peaceful hotel for a very reasonable price and a very friendly atmosphere. THANK YOU KOS BAY! From Josh, son of Tony.

The staff were rude, expect by the moment we paid. We felt like we were business. We wanted to pay with credit card but the recepcionist said that the machine was 'broken'. An hour later when we asked the manager to pay by card, the machine was magically 'fixed'!!!
Don't believe the website regarding the complementary breakfast, you have to pay for it. (Although, we didn't as when we made our booking we paid for it without knowing). The facilities that were advertised for the room weren't there (i.e., kettle and fan). The air conditioner was touch and go, and on our final day it didn't work at all.
The plus side - we had a room with a balcony of the new marina, which was wonderful.
Overall, it was a disappointing experience for us and we wouldn't recommend this hotel.

The ladies were very knowledgeable, polite and easygoing on reception. ThE hotel was perfect for me travelling alone. The location was central. The accommodation was roomy and very clean. They were happy to stay up to receive late travellers and for me to extend my room for a late departure free of charge. Overall a great stay and very cheap in comparison with others

Room Tip: The rooms at the back are quiet as less people are staying in them therefore you get to sit on your...

Kos is a lovely city... it´s even better if you find a nice place to stay.... and that was my case!
Kos Bay hotel is a very comfy place near the centar of Kos town...
People were really helpful with all my questions about taxi, bus, where to go, where to eat.
I'm 100% sure that you will enjoy your stay there... and if I go back to Kos, that will be my place to stay!

Another point: Very honest people!

Kos Bay Hotel is easy to find from the bus stop. Has a good location, near restaurants, markets and places to rent bikes.

It has a very nice breakfast, the room that we stayed was very comfortable and clean.

It is a very calm place, really good to relax.

And as it is near to the center of Kos Town, you can easily find buses to other parts of Kos and even options of ferries to other islands.

The staff is helpful, providing maps and references of places to go.

The owner and all the staff were really helpful.They offered us valuable information for the rest of our holiday answering dozens of questions with patience.
The location is great by the sea,the rooms cleaned daily,the breakfast very good.
Having to choose a residence,in case of return to Kos,I would stay there again.
