Iris Hotel Kos Town, Kos
★ ★ ★
No weather data found for [, ”Kos”, ”Kos, horizontal]
A 3-star property, older in style throughout with the exception of the newer self catering block which is more attractively built. Internal areas are dated in appearance and facilities are limited for a hotel of this grading.
A family-run establishment. Would suit those looking for a quiet base in a small village, whilst having the culture and sights of Kos Town a short distance away.
An unimaginative concrete block painted in lemon and white with average size concrete balconies topped with railings. Bike hire occupies much of the car park at the front of the property. The hotel rooms are located in the older building which sits above and behind the reception.
The self catering block behind the pool uses the same colour scheme, but with more character and attention to detail. Windows and patio doors are framed in white, as opposed to the metal shutters on the hotel rooms, and balconies have some ornate iron features.
Property type: Aparthotel
Balcony/Terrace: Some rooms
The open plan lobby, main bar and reception have wood fittings, ornaments and pictures which try to project a Swiss theme. Out-dated, with a strange mishmash of different coloured upholstered sofas, the plain breakfast area, which is adjacent, is no more modern.
Narrow lawns border the pathways with mature trees and bushes. The pool area has a tiled surround with some weeds poking through and a small lawn area to the side where the children’s playground is located along with the children’s pool, which is more of a splash pool for toddlers.
The main pool has metal stepped entry only and displays no depth markings. The functional pool bar is also in need of some updating and features black bar stools and white and red plastic furniture under a shaded terrace with a pool table to the side.
Area Type: Iris Hotel is located in the small Greek village of Paradissi, 2km from Kos Town and 300 metres from Psalidi. There are similar types of self catering properties in the vicinity along with residential houses and farmland. There is a small supermarket and a taverna opposite, with more choice on the main road along with the bus stop for Kos Town and the beach.
Nearest beach: 200 Metres (Psalidi)
