“Acceptable 'budget-styled' hotel..”
Reviewed August 4, 2011

Stayed for a week at the end of July. Booked directly from the hotel's website, which is cheaper because you can select "add-ons" for the room and pay for things you need. (eg aircon, breakfast, refrigerator, etc)
Arrived around 11am from the airport and was promptly given a room. Staff are very friendly and helpful, rooms are extremely basic. The cupboards and doors in the room creak a lot and the bathroom has a key in the lock, but does not work. As expected in a warm country, I saw a cockroach in the bathroom a few times.
Breakfast is simple and repetitive (was the same every single day during our stay).
Nice pool and free wifi in the lobby.
It is a short distance away from the center of Kos Town, about 20mins walk.
Advantage: quiet and nice for relaxing by the pool.
Disadvantage: during the summer heat, it's NOT fun to walk to the town.
Luckily, we rented bicycles (15eur/week each) and that made it more convenient to reach town, as well as cycle to the main inter-village bus station to take the bus to other parts of Kos.
All in all, our stay was pleasant enough but I doubt we will go back there again.

We stayed at Leonidas Hotel for 2 weeks and I have to admit that this hotel is marvelous! We had a very clean room on the first floor, looking at a garden. It is located 10 minutes walking from the city centre and 5 min away from the best beach of the city. Great, relaxing holidays at an ever greater price! We'll return.

Lovely little hotel / studio complex, staff were very helpful and friendly. Location was out of the centre, but the hotel recommended hiring bikes at 4euros a day and this was a great idea. Room was clean and came with a hob and a fridge, as well as a little balcony. The pool was clean and not too busy. Breakfast was good, with a range to try. The place does have quite a few cats too.

We have been visiting Leonidas Hotel several times during the last years and we would not hesitate to stay there again.The hotel is wonderfully located,in a very quiet place a few minutes away from the beach and the city center and close to shops and restaurants. The owners, are gracious, kind and very helpful and always welcoming and ready to assist their guests. Rooms are simple and spotlessly clean with air-condition, a refrigerator and a TV set. Swimming pool simply amazing.We would stay there again.

I stayed in Leonidas Hotel and Studios with my girlfriend for one week in late June 2010. As we like Kos island very mush and we're not interesting in luxury hotels, we have stayed in a lot of different budget hotels in Kos, during the last couple of years. But Leonidas is the one that deserves the best compliments.

Rooms: Our room was clean and fully equipped with air-condition, fridge and television. It was spotesly cleaned everyday by a friendly housekeeper lady. The balcony was quite big and the bathroom in perfect condition and clean. Towels were changed every other day and sheets every three days.
Overall: Clean and comfortable room with nice colors.

Staff: The staff was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. They were ready to assist us in everything we needed and they made us feel like home. They helped us rent a scooter and gave us some pretty nice advice about all the good beaches, restaurants and sightseeings of the Island.
Overall: The atmosphere was warm and welcoming

Breakfast: We had the option to pay only 2,50 Euro per person to have the breakfast which is served between 8.00 - 9.30. The breakfast was way much better than we expected. Thinking that if you go in a snack-bar on a coffee-bar in downtown you must pay at least 3 Euro to get only a cup of coffee. We paid 2.50 and we've got a fully breakfast! Which in case case it was much better than the breakfast they serve in other 2 stars hotel in Greek Islands. Besides the basics (Cheese,Ham,Marmalades etc) they even served local yogurt and honey, cereals and milk
Overall: Very nice breakfast, almost free!

Location: The hotel is located in a very quiet street, between the city center and the road that goes to Lambi beach. That makes sure that during your stay you won't get disturbed from any noise. The nights will be quiet and relaxing, so you can get a nice sleep. The city center is cout 1km away (10-15 min walking) and the nearest, sandy and very popular beach is exactly 800 meters far. (10 min walking) The nearest supermarket is 400 meters away and at the same distance the nearest restaurant. You always have the option to re a bicycle,a scooter or a car if you ask at the reception.
Overall: Quiet area, close to the beach and the city center.

Price: This is probably the best part. We paid 30 Euro for our room and we had everything. A big clean room with big balcony,AC,Fridge,TV. Swimming pool and breakfast for two.(25 Euro was the price for the same room with no breakfast)
Overall: The best value for money hotel we've ever stayed.

We left from Leonidas Hotel very satisfied with our stay and with the strange feeling that we paid much less than we expected to pay.
Overall a great place that gives extra value to your money.
