Just got back from a seven night stay at this lovely Hotel. We couldn't have wished for more friendly staff and management. The rooms are basic but extremely clean, lovely crisp white bedding and fluffy towels. The shower is small but you manage!! Greek night is a must for10 euros per person. Don't go to this Hotel if you want five star luxury, it is a must if you want a nice holiday surrounded by nice people. We had a one bedroom apartment which had two air conditioning units free of charge. Not sure what the Hotel rooms were like. This hotel is near Kos town and to top it all a lovely Taverna just across the road which served the best Lamb Kleftiko ever!!!More
“WOW, WOW, WOW”
"Fantastic" is one way to sum up our experience at The Poseidon Hotel and Apartments! Others clearly think so too, we were astounded by the number of return holidaymakers and visitors to the hotel. And many have been back several times. This was our first visit to Kos and we iterate the positive reviews given by others below for the Poseidon. Over the years my wife and I have stayed in many 5 star hotels in other countries and enjoyed the experience. But in our view they just do not compare when when it comes to the hospitality, kindness and attention offered by Tula, Ang and all the staff at the intimate 35 room Poseidon. If you are wooed by the higher cost and less personal service offered by 5 star 'luxury', then these huge multinational giants offer this. If you want high levels of personal service with friendly smiles where nothing is too much trouble and from people who recognise you by your name (and not a number) The Poseidon wins hands down in our view. For us The Poseidon takes a lot of beating and we shall return to embrace the comfort, friendship, personal service and hospitality offered by the wonderful Greek/Australian family and their staff at the Poseidon Hotel and Apartments. I could go on and on about The Poseidon Hotel but so many have provided wonderful comments in their reviews below. I would only be repeating what has previously been said, with gusto and enthusiasm of course! Thank you to our newly made friends Tula, Ang and the staff at The Poseidon Hotel and Apartments. We had a wonderful time with you are are very much looking forward to visiting again. My advice: "BOOK, BOOK, BOOK" a holiday at The Poseidon Hotel and Apartments. Regards, Michael and Laurie, sadly back home in the UK now! More
Just returned from a fab week in Kos. This hotel is such a lovely family run place. Relaxed and friendly is what you go on holiday for and that's certainly what you get. Yes hotel is a low star rating but Greece has had a bad 2 years and once everyone realises that the immigrants have gone then Greece can get back on its feet and help these hotels make them 4 stars where they should be. The service you get here is second to none Ange,Toula and Johnny are lovely 10 stars for them all. Hotel is 5 mins from beach 10 mins lovely walk into town. Nice resturants on route plus shop opposite for any extras. We walked to Lampi beach everyday which was 30 min walk via town and marina which was a lovely walk and went to Nicks again another friendly beach run place free sunbeds lovely dinner again amazing place family make it special clean and amazing food. So many people go all inclusive and miss out on these Family run hotels and Family run tavenas. In Greece. Trust me book it 😁😁More
Outstanding value apartments and hotel
This is our second year staying at the Poseidon, and to say this now feels like home and us part of the family is the best descriptive I can use. Ange and Toula instantly embrace you and ensure you become part of the Poseidon experience, their personal values run throughout the entire team both in the additional family members and recruited staff. The breakfast is sufficient to set you up for the day, and the pool side snack bar enables you to lounge by the pool if you desire yet still be fed and watered. However, the ideal location allows for exploration of the local culture and town, yet is close enough to many beaches and restaurants for passing the time away.More
The lovely people at Poseidon
Firstly I'd like to say that the terrible negative reviews of this place are made up by people who must live in a complete fantasy world ,have an aversion of kind genuine people or have booked this hotel without doing their background checks ,Yes it is a 2 star hotel people !!!!!!! But although it is a 2star hotel you are delivered a 5 star service , a little dated but all lovely and clean , comfy beds and pillows and a great shower with fantastic water pressure , this little gem is in a great location near all the amenities, we are still here at the moment and looking forward to sharing the last 3 days of our holiday with ange , toula, and the rest of the lovely smiley team xxx love Jessie and Katie xxMore
