What the experts say about us!

We are one of the very few hotels recommended by all of the professional guidebooks including Frommers, Thomas Cook, Michelin, Guide Routard, Rough Guide, Marco Polo, Let's Go, Lonely Planet, Petit Futé, Michael Müller Verlag, Dumont, Berlitz, Fodoors. etc.

Here are just a couple of extracts...

Lonely Planet: Peaceful Afendoulis has unfailingly friendly staff and sparkling rooms with adobe white walls, small balconies, flat-screen TV, hairdryer, and spotless en suite. Downstairs there's an open breafast room and flowery terrace with wrought iron tables and chairs. Breakfast is a feast of homemade jams and marmalades. Like stepping into the pages of a Durrell novel, once you've visited you'll be a returning character. There may be more modern, plusher hotels in Kos but none with the special soul of this fine, family-run establishment.

The Rough Guide to The Greek Islands: Large, aircon, balconied, en-suite rooms include a few family quads, but what guarantees a loyal, repeat clientele is the way Alexis Zikas, brother Ippokrates and wife Dionysia really look after their guests.


Frommers: Nowhere in Kos do you receive so much for so little. Afendoulis offers the magical combination of convenience and calm. This long-established family place, and the Zikas family spare nothing to create within their walls a very special holiday community.
