I can see that there are positives to Nicon apartments and some of the staff are absolutely superb but it wasn't the relaxing holiday we were expecting because of the following reasons:
- The beds were really hard and the bedding provided was uncomfortable so it was hard to get a good nights sleep
- The Cockerel wakes you up at 7am in the morning, every morning and keeps on going so even if you do get to sleep you are woken early. At all other times you can constantly hear noise in the apartments from the roads, the bar etc
- It was a good 20-30 minutes walk into Kos Town which meant if you wanted to get anywhere you had to wait for the bus or walk in the heat. This made it more difficult going out in the evening with my Mum who couldn't cycle or walk so well. The literature all says '10 minutes walk' but this is only to the Marina not the actual town where all the sights and good restaurants are.
- The apartments are small, crammed and very dated so were not a relaxing place to stay.
- The man behind reception was very grumpy and intrusive.
- The whole place is a bit tatty, as if it has seen better days.
- This last point isn't Nicon's fault but we booked with Thomas Cook and we were treated like second class citizens compared to the Oceania. Not by our rep, who did everything he could to make it brilliant, but by the other reps on and on the day trips they arrange etc.

This is probably a really good place if all you want to do is sit on sun loungers all day and drink at the bar. The guys behind the bar are really friendly and welcoming. Drinks are cheap and good. They do really good greek salad, tzatziki etc. However if, like us, you prefer somewhere a bit more relaxing to use as a base for exploring Kos Town and the rest of the island then this may not be the place for you.

we have just returned from nicon apts ,we feel that it was one of the best holidays as every one is so friendly + and the staff make time for everyone, such a good at'mosphere with Nicos +Romeo at night time and also Costas by day and good food, even the cleaners are lovely . the greek night is a must and although I cant sing the karoke was great. We also made some lovely friends, it seems that a lot of people return year after year. Which is always a good advert for the apartments. Kos town is only 10 mins by bus 1 euro and 10cents.the town is just lovely.You can hire bikes and the cycle lane is straight forward and goes through the town and is safe. We will return to Nicon apts. Gaynor + John x

Room Tip: We had no 39 which was great as I dont like being on the ground floor (insects)

Just returned from a week at the nicon apartments, wow, lovely friendly bar staff, cleaner great.
The rooms are a bit dated but kept in good condition.The old guy on reception was a bit grumpy though. Would definately recommend a stay here. Only downside is its a 20 min walk into town, but check on bus times on main road and your sorted. Greek night is a must, beer and food in hotel excellent and prices very reasonable. This is a total chill out holiday if thats what your after.

Room Tip: Room 17 , far enough from the bar area and quiet.
