We were trying to get a hotel near Mastahari to catch the ferry to Kalymnos. It was the cheapest one over by Mastahari that was available. When we got there, they upgraded us to a nicer room. We arrived late and were hungry and nothing was open. The staff stayed long enough to throw some really good food and wine together for us. Much appreciated. Didn't get to spend any time at the pools, but did go up by the bar/outdoor night club... it was fun. Definitely appreciated the service.

Stayed here for a week in June. The hotel is centrally located, a few minutes from the main square, harbour, and archaeological site of the ancient agora; and likewise a few minutes from the bus station, which made it an ideal location for exploring the town and the island, as I did. I found the hotel excellent value for money, very clean and comfortable. Staff were helpful with information. The room has a small balcony with table and chairs (no sea view as it is on the intersection of a couple of streets) is simply but pleasingly furnished, the bed is very comfortable, the air conditioning very simple to operate and effective, the lighting well thought out (there are proper lights above the mirror for doing makeup, there is a bedside light and a reading light). The bathroom is tiny but well equipped. The shower is very easy to use and there is plenty of hot water, and the hair dryer gives a good blast. Only sight drawback is some sound occasionally from corridors, (typically for buildings in the Mediterranean, a lot of hard surfaces, so not much sound absorption) but the air conditioning cancels it out. There is an excellent breakfast buffet included in the price, with hot food in the form of scrambled egg and sausages or bacon, as well as normal buffet food.
"10 minute walk to downtown, 5 minute walk to beach"
I would not hesitate to stay in Elite Apartments again. My apartment was fully furnished and comfortable for a week or month long stay. It was clean. Everything worked well. There is a grocery store across the street at which I bought food; I ended up eating out very rarely. The owner was usually in his office or nearby repairing equipment. He was very friendly, greeting me and asking if all was well with the apartment each time I saw him. The apartment building is toward the out-of-town end of the main tourist street, straight back from the harbor. Kos itself is a wonderful place to visit. I had the most relaxing vacation of my life.

"Great value for money, lovely staff and good food"
This is a 2 star hotel, so you should not expect 5 star luxury. The hotel rooms need a bit of decorative upgrade, they are however kept clean and comfortable, with all the facilities you need. Air con is a great addition and not seen as standard in many hotels at 2 star rating. The staff are all very friendly and make you feel at home. The snack bar at the pool does great snacks and we even had an evening meal there; which was far better than a couple of external restaurants we went to in KOS town. In short, food was good! Pool was clean and well equipped and was used by many guests with good reports all round.
In summary, great place to stay, kept clean and it's cheap and definitely cheerful with nice staff. I read a lot of reviews stating it was noisey, unclean and for party animals only. This is not what I experienced, yes, the decor is not that of a 5 star, so don't expect that. There were also signs up stating that and persons causing loud noise and disturbing the guests would be made to leave.
I used a single room.
Room was compact but clean and neat. Modern style.
Very close to the downtown, bus terminal, and port.
What a great sea view.
Kind people. Free wireless at the lobby and restaurant.
Strongly recommend !!
