4,0 Okay
Pros: -the location is incredible, it is about a 200-300m walk from the port where the ferry drops you. This is fantastic because you can avoid the hassle. It is only a 100m walk to the beah as well which is also right near a bar and some nice restaurants. The pool and poolside bar and restaurant at this hotel are incredible. There are alot of young people staying here (18-25yrs) when i was there. In particular, there were alot of young women. Very good scenery.
Cons: -the owner was very rude to us upon arrival. our ferry from another island to this one was cancelled due to high winds, and as a result we arrived a day later at this hotel then we were menat to. because we had booked online, we were a day late for our booking, through no fault of our own. The owner was very rude (gave us death stares and spoke to us in a bad tone), even though we clearly explained there was nothing we could do as the enxt ferry didnt leave for the next day. I would not stay here again if this is how the owner treats all of her customers. I felt like telling her off. Very rude and bitchy. It impacted on our stay. Also, the room ie very very tiny and not comfortable. The bathroom is quite poor as well.
7,6 Good
Pros: The owners were very kind and welcoming. The place had a wonderful charm to it and the pool was spectacular !

The location is a 15 minute walk to town but it is on a clearly paved pathway so it is still quite safe at night.

This meant that the sun beds were often taken (by non guests) and unable for us to use.

Pros: the view was amazing same with the pool and the rooms. thats about it.
Cons: the owner was rude, arrogant, bossy. you cant do this and you cant do this. you cant drink by the pool. you can not have guests on the property. we could not drink out side our room past 12am. and when we did he called the police on us the next day for making to much noise. which was not true. we asked guest the next day and they said they did not hear us. he would not give me back my passport for the 4 days we were there. i didnt read the reviews when booking this. it looked amazing and i just went with it. but when the owner and his mum stay there it makes it like someone is always watching and you can not enjoy your self.

Pros: Pool was a lovely addition, manager was very friendly and helpful. Accomidation was very clean, and a short walk to all of the mains bars and pubs! But just outside so not too noisy. There was a massive nightclub right next to the porperty, about 10m's away! However it was shut when we were there, I can imagine it being very very loud. Right on the main road too, but traffic noise wasn't very loud as hardly any traffic on ios. Great stay, it was perfect :)

Pros: Very friendly and helpful people running the studios. Everything was clean and worked well. We were collected and returned to the port with our luggage and Hotel Helena was close enough to beach, tavernas, bars, port and bus stop yet set back on a lave so it was peaceful. Many thanks for wonderful hospitality.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Stayed for 3 nights and we loved Hotel Helena. It was in a great peaceful location and close to the beach and a 5 min walk from the port and harbour. The staff were really helpful and we booked a speed boat trip with the owner which all our party of 6 loved. The room was great with an interconnecting door so our two daughters had the privacy they needed. The roof terrace was brilliant with great views. It's a short bus ride to Chora (lively at night and beautiful during the day) and a twenty minute walk back down a steps - very handy.
Cons: Just crying out for a pool to make it exceptional.

Pros: The room was clean.
Cons: Our stay was ok the room was clean and we had a balcony looking over the fabulous beach, although the staff were tolerant with me and my partner during our stay, a few days previous they were extremely rude to us upon entering the location at 10pm and told us to go away although one of us was a guest, they were exceptionally rude to our friends staying at this location also which completely brought down the standard for us and made it uncomfortable to enjoy our evenings. I would not recommend this place for young people.

Pros: Very close to the port. Spacious room with a balcony. Air conditioning.
Cons: Nothing it was all wonderful!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The Acteon Hotel was in an excellent position only about 200 yards from the ferry. Situated right in the port some rooms overlook the ferry port and others face the yacht harbour. The rooms are excellent, spacious clean and comfortable. When we arrived were given a free upgrade and our room overlooked the yacht harbour. The lady on reception was extremely friendly and very helpful. She is a credit to the Acteon Hotel. Opposite the hotel is an excellent bakery and coffee station that serves excellent latte and cappuccino coffees as well as lovely homemade bread and pastries. There is a nice walk to a beach to the left of the ferry port, several tavernas along the beach for a meal or a drink. Ios is a lovely island, well worth a visit.
Cons: Nothing to dislike
8,0 Excellent
Pros: A stones through away from the port, huge balcony facing the ocean if you are in a triple room, stayed in June for 6 days the port was quiet in the evenings, a lot of great places to eat , market, bakery , souvenir shopping right outside your door. We chose to stay at the port so we would have an easy get away route when we continued to Santorini, as we rented an ATV and were out all day and evenings the hotel was simply a clean place to keep our luggage, sleep , shower, change and repeat
Cons: See above about the bed

Pros: close to everywhere!! Chora, beaches, port!!
9,5 Excellent
Pros: We originally thought that staying at the port would be too far away from town. However it actually turned out to be the best location there was more happening at the port than in Chora. You walk off the ferry and Acteon is right there which is super easy. There are plenty of restaurants in the little square and a super market along with other little souvenir/ gift shops. There is a beach 5 mins walk away or you can walk further round or catch the bus to more secluded bays. It’s super easy to get off to Mylopotas beach only a 10 min bus which is $1.80 euro each way. Overall the hotel was extremely clean and in a great location. The value for money was very good so I couldn’t recommend more. I will stay again next time I visit Ios!
Cons: The only downside was the bed was quite hard however this is quite common in Greece.

5,8 Okay
Pros: The location was amazing, nice views. The beds were comfortable, hot shower, nice fridge. Pool and view were amazing.
Cons: We had some disagreements with the staff that were handled very unpleasantly, due to technicalities. We were not allowed to change guests easily, and because of this had a full blown ARGUMENT with the hotel owner. We were also told there would be hourly checks in our rooms in the morning to ensure we were only 6 guests, because they suspected we were lying about only being 6 guests, and the hotel owner herseld said they would enter even if we were not awake, without our consent. On another occasion, we were still sleeping after a late night of partying, and were told by the cleaning ladies that we HAD to leave the room, who insisted that we leave despite us asking they not do cleanup on that day. Also, we found a USED CONDOM under the bed, a condom box and other belongings in the nighttable when we arrived.
6,3 Good
Pros: Really friendly staff and a nice pool
Cons: Wifi was not working inside our rooms, you had to either go sit at reception or by the pool. The beds were really uncomfortable, and we didn’t realise how big the hill was to get up to the main village.

Pros: Very close to port and buses to Chora town and beaches etc. Had a nice standard room with balcony by the pool. Staff are helpful and accommodating. Rooms cleaned every day and sheets every second day. Quite, peaceful area during the day.

Pros: The location of the hotel is perfect as it gave us a nice view of the port/ocean and the sunset is absolutely breath-taking. My friends and I would just chill at the balcony or the common area right at the top to watch the sunset. The owner was very nice and attentive as well.

Pros: Very well located (although it's in the middle of a steep hill). Beautiful view to the docks. Private balcony (we were expecting a shared balcony, it was a good surprise). Staff always very friendly and helpful. Beds are comfortable.
Cons: A lot of noise in the morning (mostly due to the wind). Shower curtain too short, the floor flooded. Also the water temperature has free will. Asked for double bed in booking, got twin beds.

Pros: Nikos picked me up at the port which meant I didn't have to walk up the steep steps with my luggage to the hotel. He was so friendly and welcoming and explained everything so well and was always so helpful. The value for money was outstanding, as my room was so spacious and clean and comfortable and it had a balcony which overlooked the sea and the beach. I couldn't have asked for better.
Cons: There was absolutely nothing about this place I didn't like
6,8 Good
Pros: Property is right in the middle from the port to the centre ( where the main restaurants are and clubs) there is a stairway that is on the side of the hotel that connects to both. Good location.
Cons: The Owner is a great man, very lovely and helpful and has a lot of pride and wants the best for his guests. However unfortunately his staff are not at the same level. (Housekeeping) What happend during our stay; I had a dirty laundry bag needing to be washed under the dresser, containing shirts and bikinis. A bikini set was placed in there however I couldn’t locate the bottoms for 2 days, assuming I miss placed them didn’t worry about them and would search for them later. So upon checking out we are packing and my friend had her sport shoes wrapped up in a bag and they were in her back pack never needing them in ios she never took them out of her bag however they were missing. Searching the room found them in the closest that we never used. Jokingly my friend said check the drawers and to which I did. In the dresser drawer stuffed behind a bible was my bikini top (which was never missing) I had specifically placed that in a washer bag knowing it was there. We knew something was up and went straight to the owner. He was so apologetic and obviously embarrassed by the situation and was more then happy to pay for the cost of the bikini that was missing due to his staff. We continued to search the room and found my bikini bottoms thrown on top of the wardrobe in the back corner. We explained to the owner what we found and he has the photos aswell. He confronted his staff in front of us however she denied it all. I would still go back to the property because it is a great location and the owner is a great guy. However I would lock my bags when you aren’t in the room.

Pros: very good position in Chora. Markets very close. Owner very friendly, helped a lot and gave advises for the day trips. They are in the middle of renovating it part by part (we saw the bathrooms that became very nice), hope in the end it gives a better feeling.
Cons: beds are very old and mattresses too hard. They need to change them during the renovation next year. No space for the kids to play but that is a general problem in the Kykladic islands when you choose to stay in the Chora ( name of the central villages of the islands).

Pros: The facilities were all fine. In an easy to reach and central location. Surrounded by all the bars. Close to bus stop.
Cons: Wasn’t the properties fault, but ONLY GO HERE IF YOU DON’T MIND UNCONTROLLABLE NOISE AT NIGHT. All the rooms were filled with teenagers only there to party. Continuous loud noice was made the entire night banging doors and furniture and screaming with loud music. There’s zero sound insulation so the sound was unavoidable. The owners didn’t seem to care. We understood this location is surrounded by bars and full of teenagers, but didn’t have one good night of sleep. Which is unfortunate given the facilities were fine. If the party hostel vibe is what you’re after ideal place to be.

Pros: the friendly staff of the avanti hotel The pool area The view of the breakfast area and the breakfast buffet
9,5 Excellent
Pros: The location of the hotel was within a short walk from Chora which has many bars and restaurants and within a 20 minute walk down a steepish path to the harbour itself, where there are plenty more bars and restaurants. I contacted the hotel a few days before we were due to arrive and the hotel owner kindly picked us up from the harbour and on our day of departure, dropped us off to get our ferry. The swimming pool area of the hotel is excellent with plenty of comfortable loungers and chairs. The bedroom we had was comfortable, a good size with an excellent shower.
Cons: We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights. Unfortunately the breakfast was exactly the same every day which would have been fine if we were staying for a shorter time which most others appeared to do. More, different fresh fruit would have been better than the fruit basket with just apples and oranges in it. There were never any tomatoes for example and the bread was either just white or brown sliced. A variety of bread buns would have been better. The eggs were simply hard boiled, there was no other choice.

Pros: When we got off the ferry the manger was there to meet us. From the get go he couldn't do enough for us. It is a two minute walk from the port and 1 minute from the beach. The location is excellent. From the centre it is 10 minutes on the bus which leaves often from the port. If you take the steps it is about 20 minute walk. Tough walk up but fine coming back in the evening or night. We were given excellent recommendations on places to eat by the manger. If we were to visit again we would 100% stay here.
9,5 Excellent
Pros: We loved staying here! The room was spacious and had good aircon and overall clean and comfortable. It was in a quiet little area surrounded by garden, which made it a really lovely place to stay! It is right near the ferry port (you can walk) which was so convenient, which means it’s also a short work to Yialos beach, which was awesome! Loved staying here.
Cons: The location was nice and a good little area of Ios, but is not in the main part of town when the main clubs/bars/resteraunts are, and isn’t near places like Far Out Beach club (Mykopatas Beach). Keep that in mind if you’re in Ios to party. In saying that, there was a bus really close by that took you into the main places and was very quick, so it was a still a great place to stay :)
