I have never stayed at the same hotel on Kos as I just use the Island/town a place to wait for my ferry to Patmos. This has changed. Hotel Afendoulis will be my home away from home on Kos. It was recommended to me, and the owner was kind enough to collect me from the harbour. When I entered the lobby I was warmly greeted, and met other guests who have stayed at the hotel for decades. That say everything. It is a simple, clean hotel that could use a little modernisation. But that is part of the charm. Location is great, on a quiet street, close to town. What will bring me back is the polite family atmosphere, great breakfast, and a good night sleep. Great hotel, great people.

The hotel is a bit old, but well maintained giving it a rustic feel. The lobby feels like a living room, so it looks like you are visiting a nice uncle, which happens to be the case!
I liked having a fan and natural air in the room, but of course air conditioning is available.
The location is safe and quiet, but it's a pleasant beach walk to the town, where the action is, but that can get tiring after a while.
However, an open air theater is operates nearby, and some dialogue gets across, but I think it's tolerable.
The local bus stop is just outside, on Vasileos Georgiou but the KTEL (intercity) bus is a bit further inland, so your travel options are well served.
But what strikes me is the utter friendliness of the owners, having a chit-chat with the guests in the lobby and the patio with a totally relaxed air.
And the famous breakfast - tastes wonderful, with naturally farmed ingredients. The yoghurt had their own jams as well to which you can also add in some honey. But I could only take the breakfast twice during my stay, there was so much - and I had to take my coffee breaks at the meeting I was attending.
So there you have it, the ingredients for a wonderful stay at Kos Town.
Enjoy!

Having had, once again, the amazing experience of a stay at the Hotel Afendoulis, we want to express again our warmest thanks to Alexis and Denise, their daughter Kiriaki and son-in-law Dimitri for their incredible gift of hospitality The welcome, the careful attention to every detail, the superb breakfasts served on the terrace, are all simply superb. Every time we go we feel we have arrived home. It's just perfect.

A hidden gem! We stopped in Kos for a quick 24hr trip and stayed here the first time, then returned shortly thereafter for 2 more nights. Great location set back from some of the crowds along the main beach street. Accommodations are simple yet clean and comfortable. The family who runs the hotel is amazing!! They are all so sweet, happy to provide directions and local recommendations to truly get the most out of Kos. Breakfast in the morning on the patio is a must! Would highly recommend
