The family-run Smaragdi Studios show off Greek hospitality at its best, and are within easy reach of lively Kos Town.
The Smaragdi Studios are just a 20-minute walk – or 10-minute bus journey – from Kos Town. As for the beach, it’s a 15-minute stroll away.
Whitewashed buildings curl around a turquoise pool and a terrace-fronted bar. The rooms themselves have plenty of elbow room, along with balconies made for al fresco dining.

we discovered Smaragdi in 2015,returned in 2016 and back for another 2 weeks 13/6/2017. Smaragdi truly is a gem of a place.It deserves to be in Thompson Small & Friendly group. Judy,Michaelis and everyone at Smaragdi are genuinely friendly and helpful. The rooms are bright and airy and kept clean by the daily attention from the staff. The pool is a good size to allow proper swimming but never feels overcrowded. Pool side bar serving snacks and drinks. The Monday Greek night is a must. Small supermarket opposite or a larger one on the main rd about 10 mins walk away For great food visit Spiros at ISTROS restaurant or Yiannis at ANGELINAS...both at the junction with the main rd All in all a great place to stay for a quiet relaxing holiday with a real family atmosphere. looking forward to our next tripMore
Clean rooms, good location, not for food or drink
Excellent maid service, great location particularly if hiring bicycle. Breakfast first morning lacking tomatoes and mushrooms as shown and butter so out of date had turned to cheese. Gloved cooking pointless as handles everything with them. Drinks not genuine content in bottles such as baileys. Overall great accommodation but eat and drink out. We had a room looking over fields and dog barking but this is not hotels faultMore
stayed for two weeks
we stayed here for the last two weeks of September .we had a great two week the apartment was lovely and clean the cleaners worked real hard and kept the place spotless .lovely size swimming pool the staff judy and Michael were really good and went out of they way to help .micheal was really good and my 3 girls thought he was great .on the first morning I asked if they could change our room for us so we could be nearer to the pool it was done for us within an hour .there was not a lot for my three daughters to do they had the swimmimg pool and a pool table so they got bored quickly .we meet some great people that kept my girls entertained and my girls still talk about .the apartment are about ten minutes walk to the beach and about 15 to kos town.best places we eat was Tsambala ,mikes ,and there was a little keeba shop next to b52 pub .we booked a trip with thomsons rep to the volcano wich I would tell you it was the worse 150 pound spent don't book trips with the rep book them out side much better and better vaule for money half the price .More

Some good points, some bad poinrts
This was our 1st visit to Greece. Studios very adequate and the maids came every day and were very good. Situated out of town but a short walk takes you to the beach and Kos town. Hiring bikes is very cheap 2.5 euros a day and are a great way to get around. However if you are looking for a quiet place to relax then this would not be the ideal place. Loud pop music is played continually from 10am to 7pm. There is no where that you can escape from it. Maybe the bottom block of apartments would be not as noisy. I asked on the second day of our stay if we could change to a quieter room but was told that all the rooms were taken. I don't think this was true as the number of people around didn't make it feel as though the hotel was full. The other thing that's not mentioned in the brochures is the continual dog barking every night which starts at around 10.30pm and seems to go on all night. Unfortunately we would not return.More
Small but perfectly formed
A brilliant one week long stay here. I enjoyed that it wasn't a massive complex, just a family run set of apartments with pool and bar. Clean rooms, enough space for us and our luggage. Very little noise, we were well looked after and always felt very safe. Don't bother with the shop over the road, walk to the supermarket which is much fresher and cheaper. As for eating, istros is brilliant as is tsampala. Walk to kos town - but consider a â¬6 taxi back! More
