    It was very cold. The floor is of stone and you're like in the frigde. There was no warm blanket in the room. Only a sheet and a thin bedcover. I went down to ask for the blanket, but I found nobody at the reception to help me. There was no hot water in the morning and I couldn't take a shower normaly. When I told the girl at the reception about the water she pretended that it was a surprise to her and she would tell .... to have a look. Then the guys from Germany came with the same complaint about the water. It is obvious they just don't turn on the heater in low season and use only sun heater, so you have warm water only in the evening of a sunny day. I caught cold as a result of 1-night in this place and the part of the vacation was spoiled. Room interior is awful. If you need smth more than one night alone, I wouldn't recommend to stay.

    The price was ok. I needed to spend just one night before the bording on the boat, so I looked for a cheap accommodation near marina. Breakfast was ok for the price.

    Nothing not to like.

    Helpful manager and staff, very clean, pretty garden, and excellent breakfast with good coffee and particularly good home made fruit, cheese and chocolate pies. Very good value for money. Will stay again next time we are in Kos. Also a short walk from Ali's Restaurant which is the best in Kos town.

    5 euro per day for Aircon is one of those charges that hotels shouldn't think is wise. I don't think it was written in the booking either.

    Definitely Overrated !

    First of all, We came for check in at 12 pm as I mentioned in my reservation but when We came for checking noone was in the premises as the property left alone. When I saw the 8.9 points in booking.com, We had high expectations from the hotel but We were very disappointed. People who gave very high points are either have not seen many hotels or they are unreal. Me and my wife stayed first 2 nights in Kos town in a fully new furnished and full seaview place called Orpheus studios and after moving 3rd night (because Orpheus was sold out) to this Americana hotel, We were very disappointed. By the way, Orpheus had only 8.6 points in booking.com. It is like driving a New ferrari for 2 nights and converting to old volkswagen for 1 night or even worst. The furniture in Americana was very old even towels were over used. The television was with tube from 80's. It was making crazy noise. We turned off after 5 minutes. There was a safe in the room but it was not working so I Could not use it. The room 203 was so small, We could not properly open the bathroom door, everytime We open the door, it was hitting the bed. The mattress was very hard so both of us could not sleep properly. The bathroom cabin was so small, I could not even turn in the shower. When We went to bed, there was a voice of water every 10 seconds may be less as someone was flushing the toilet. Next morning during the breakfast, there were 2 cats belonged to the owner in the breakfast area were all over on the tables. They did not allow us to have a freely breakfast. The cats were all over so it did not look hygiene at all. After reading those comments, I believe that people should be more realistic. Every property should get what it deserve and improve itself as it is needed.

    Apparently, I realized from the comments that everyone paid 5 Euro to use the air condition but the owner did not charge us for that. Anyhow, it was chilly in september so We did not use it at all.

    Excellent value property. The manager was very helpful and even took us to the port when there was a delay with taxis and didnt charge us for that even after offering. Nice and quiet just off the main road but close to everything. The manager also got us picked up to go to hire a bike. A really good experience.

    The guy that I presume was the hotel owner and our host was without any questions far out the most unfriendly person I ever met. First I thought it was just me but my wife said the same. Besides this we also saw that he was very friendly to Greek people but with anything else the other side came out again. Jec Jekly and Hide.

    The furnitire in the water room is old and looks rusty and dirty. The distance for the very historical center is about 1 km so it could be a problem for disabled or lazy people. Sometimes we hear a noise from the street, even from heavy duty trucks.

    Everything is OK, staff is friendly, room is clear, large balcony with the table and two chairs.

    The bed was slightly uncomfortable but honestly wasnt that bad either! Only 2 tv channels worked, but in saying that, i never brought the issue up as it wasnt a big deal and it may be just an issue with the room we were in.

    The staff were excellent! The room was clean and was cleaned daily! Wifi had good signal and was fast! There is an english woman named Kerrie that works there, she was absolutely lovely and made us feel right at home, she was always very helpful and was very easy to have a conversation with! Thank you kerrie :) And a big thank you to to all the staff for putting up with us and the family :)

    There was nothing I didn't like.

    A wonderful hotel, well situated just outside Kos town. I was welcomed with overwhelming friendliness. There is a sign downstairs that says "friends forever" and it sure seems to be true. The staff and ownership would do anything to make your stay pleasant. My suite includes is very spacious and exceptionally clean. Everything works well. One thing I really appreciate is that the maids are not about too early in the day. If I came to Kos again, I would stay here without thinking about anywhere else. It is an experience, not just a hotel stay. Highly recommended.
