Poseidon Hotel & Apartments  

A central location - you're just 10 minutes' stroll from Kos Town - and great service gives the Poseidon Hotel the edge. There's also a small pool and low-key entertainment like quizzes and barbecues.

The Poseidon Hotel puts all of Kos’ best bits on your doorstep. The property is just a ten-minute walk from the town centre, and it takes the same time to get to the beach.

The hotel is well-known for its welcoming atmosphere. At the swimming pool, guests get talking to each other over cocktails from the bar.

Bedrooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. They all come with tea and coffee-making facilities, so you can enjoy a hot drink on your balcony at the start of the day.

The Poseidon Hotel has been in business for 30 years so they’ve got customer service down to a fine art. The staff have a reputation for being friendly and helpful and they pull out all the stops to entertain on the weekly barbecue, party and quiz nights.

Superb as always

Just returned from another holiday on the beautiful island of Kos and yet again we had a holiday to remember. Having visited the Poseidon on numerous occasions it really does feel like home from home the moment we arrive. Ange and Toula are the perfect hosts and add to this their two children who we've seen grow up, it's the perfect place to relax and unwind. As a few previous reviews have mentioned it's not a five star luxurious resort, what it is though is a hotel that is comfortable, friendly, provides a great atmosphere and most of all enjoyable. The enthusiasm Ange puts into running this hotel with his team of staff is incredible and we cannot wait to visit again to see them all, plus no doubt a fair few friends who we've made across the years staying here.

Stayed here for a week with my boyfriend. Aged 22 &23. When arrive early in the moring was told our room wasn't ready and put into 101 but in the moring was able to change.... room small but enough for two people. Double bed lovely for air conditioning as it's small room very cold. Bathrooms a bit small but you can manage. Balacony small but had a chair and table to sit by not much of a view but quite and gets hot. Overall rooms are great but need a little updating. Meet great people out there made our holiday. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food at the snack bar great especially the all day breakfast great value for money. We stayed bed & breakfast but never got up for it was told it was basic. Beers and cocktails great value for money. Offers free Wi Fi. Library, computers. Great location loved kos and will definitely be staying here again More


Great value for money

We just returned today and i was determined to have my say about Poseidon. I stayed here because I'd read so many excellent reviews and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. Toula and Ange are very REAL hosts and very decent people, although we didn't really take as much a part of things as lots of other folk they treated us just as kindly as if we had, I even got a hug from Toula as we left and felt it was a genuine warm farewell. If you go expecting luxury rooms you will not be happy, if you were hoping for cordon blue food it's not going to happen and if you're looking for an olympic sized pool forget it. If you are the sort that will look for reasons to be unhappy then I'm sure you'll be delighted as it's not perfect. It was however perfect for us, and for many others. The staff are fantastic, work like worker bees all day long cleaning rooms, tidying away and making the place run as well as it does, this includes both owners who seem to be omnipresent and know exactly what's going on, always a good thing. In short we had a fantastic holiday thanks to everyone at Poseidon and we will be back, next time we'll hire a car though as we didn't do the island justice. One final thought, we only really understood how good the Poseidon was on the last day when we visited lots of others we'd seen advertised as our transfer coach picked people up, some of them looked awful compared to the Poseidon and they were the same star rating. Thank you Toula and Ange for a lovely stay and for your hard work. We will be back! Nige, Pip and LivMore
