“Great for extended stays or budget options”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile


It's murder on the dance floor, gonna burn this goddamn house right down.  Song 

Elite apartments is a great little hotel close to town.  Close enough to all the major attractions but far enough to avoid the constant flogging of restaurateurs.  Rooms are surprisingly spacious, with a kitchen that seats 5, a large bedroom, veranda for 2, and a decent sized bathroom with bathtub. Utensils and cutlery for 4 was provided, along with microwave, mini fridge, and hot plate. We were able to eat super cheap by shopping at the supermarket across the street and making quick and easy meals.  Definitely saved cash compared to the restaurants, which can get quite pricey. 
Rooms were clean and the owner was quick to fix any problems, and obviously took great pride in his hotel. 

One minor detail: use of the safe deposit box was not included, as well as an oscillating fan. These cost €20/week each, or €35 together, which I found a little strange. Aside from that, no other issues. 

Bottom line: cheap, easy, local, and convenient. A good option for those who aren't looking for 5 star luxury or who are planning a longer stay. 

Details: €68/night for 2 singles
30 minute walk to downtown bus station, 15 minutes to town centre & attractions and ferry port, 5 minutes to a (crowded) local beach. Prepare for a day trip to get a slice of private beach, but for an hour or two of lounging it's great.

The hotel is very clean and beautiful, quite close to the city centre and smoothly far by the night chaos.
The owner,Makki,is a beautiful person and he became an uncle to me.
We spent there 7 nights and we had no problems.
Very reccomended.

Went here with three others who had been there more than one occasion ( some more than once!!) )
Poppy and Makis in the hotel side could not have been friendlier and hospitable.

Apartments spacious , clean and comfortable
Close to town within 10 mins walking , near main road but no problems with noise , pool side is great and in May weather is good .
Big shout out to Tommy and his T bones in the restaurant across from the apartments with the help of Lazarus and Amanda . Great food , huge portions and nice service
Hope to be back and back !

Strolling through Kos recently I passed the Elite Apartment Hotel, where the owner was doing some last minute touch up with the Queens perfume (paint). I stopped to chat and asked if he would serve me with a drink as it was very hot. Over a drink I got to talking to him and asked him what his rates were. They were marginally higher than what I was paying and asked if it was possible to see one of the apartments. Usual greek saying "NO PROBLEM", and he commenced to show me over one of the apartments. What a shock! It was immaculate,carpets even! Microwave cooker hairdryer frig and what struck me most was the amount of utensils. One normally gets 2 pots and a large spoon. Not here, there was everything one could want, even a corkscrew. I would make this a definite stay when ever I return to Kos.

My two daughters and I travelled to Kos on first Ryanair flight to and from Liverpool in April 2011. Flight went like clockwork as did car hire at airport and this accommodation. OK this is not a 5 star all inclusive Hotel but nobody is claiming it is. What we got was a good sized, freshly painted apartment that was spotlessly cleaned with a shower & bath, good balcony, free wifi and the bonus of a nice on-site pool with a small bar and hosts that looked after you very well .
There’s a very good supermarket (not a mini-market) just across the road too.
All in all, I think you will do well to better the Elite in Kos town for the money. I have stayed all over Greece and this is the first time we’ve had complimentary toiletries, fresh flowers on the kitchen table, full condiments, plenty of loo rolls and cleaning materials and yes for the first time ever, washing up liquid and a squeegee in the kitchen sink, all these things are a given that you have to go out and buy on your first day and then leave 80% full when you go. It even had a hair drier and an iron & ironing board!
Now for the niggles, other travelers have said that it is 5 to 10 mins walk to the town centre but we found that was more like 20 mins to the main square and it's not a particularly great walk back after a night out in April.
There’s a beach about 5 to 10 mins walk away but when we were there it was scruffy & dirty and we would not have used it.
The only English TV channel other than news was what was being shown in the bar and when the channel was changed or switched off so was ours!
Why leave a big fan in the room with the plug locked inside a box and charge almost as much to rent it for a week as the thing would have cost to buy – bizarre. (Come on Makis, it’s bought and paid for, let em have it for free, knock 5 or 10e of the price of the safe and air-con then no one can moan about it!)
I’ve tried to be honest and fair and would have no hesitation in staying at the Elite again.

Room Tip: ask for a 1st floor apartment oerlooking the pool
