A beautiful hotel next to the beach and within a 30 minute walk (10 minute cycle) of Kos town. The staff are wonderful, couldn't do enough for us and the rooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The food in the restaurant was amazing. It's a small, friendly hotel with the facilities of a large hotel. There is a lot to see and do in Kos town so I would recommend hiring a bike. There are miles of cycle paths to enjoy in Kos town and along the coast road. We used the spa during our stay and again I would recommend treating yourself to a session in the spa.
I went with my daughter our room opened onto swimming pool which was amazing. Staff excellent. Breakfast very good Spa tennis court and sunshine we had a really good holiday. We went to unwind and relax which we did
Visited Kos for the first time in September and we were totally captivated by the island, Kos Town itself and above all the hotel. It could not be in a better location. Close to the town with shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep but yet the back of the hotel is so peaceful and the view from the balcony was amazing. We liked the fact that it was a small hotel. The lift was very small and fairly slow so apart from when we arrived with suitcases we used the stairs all the time, as we were only on the second floor (there are three altogether). We found our room to be spacious and clean. Tea and coffee making facilities were a bonus as you dont normally get them abroad. The only issue we had was that the lights were a bit hit and miss, if the key card wasnt in the slot precisely everything went off, it was very sensitive. Bed was big and comfy and although plenty of pillows were provided some were as hard as rocks. Breakfast was great and considering the timescale 7 to 11 everything was replenished and freshly cooked (ie eggs and bacon). It was a joy to sit outside for breakfast and enjoy the superb view. We ate evening meal one night at the hotel as we had read the good reviews. We booked a table in advance as we had noticed from our balcony that the restaurant was very full in the evening. We werent disappointed it was a lovely meal but the rest of the week we sampled the local restaurants.
First off, in Kos you could not get any better as far as location. It's close to the old town, with a view of the castle and the harbour. The staff are very polite.
The room was clean, but the furniture was very spare: one straightbacked chair with no cushion or the bed were the seating options. The mattress on the bed was hard, but after a day of wandering, this wasn't really all that noticeable. The room I was in had a balcony and a kind of nifty door that could be set in one position to be opened as a door and the other as a kind of window, tilted back (I initially thought that someone had tried to break in the room until I started messing with the door handle and realized that position was intentional for venting the room). The breakfast buffet was quite nice with numerous bread and pastry options, a few meats, eggs and some fruits and vegetables.
I was here out of season so I can't attest to how noisy the area might be during the summer months, but in late April it was very quiet.

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.
We were in St. Constantine towards the end of the holiday season. We was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff. Hotel is sparkling clean. Pretty nice breakfast included in the price. Location is very nice, walking distance to the old town/marina. Many cafes/restaurants close by. The only negative was the shower stall and shower head. Didn't work well. There is definitely street noise if you are staying facing the main street. I would ask for one of the back rooms if we go back again. Definitely would stay here again.

Having been to Kos twice before on a similar holiday, decided to stay in Kos town itself as apposed to the outskirts of town. I found it a little bit noisier due to the volume of traffic which passed by every night but soon got used to it.
The good thing about the location was, it was only a few minutes walk to the restaurants and only a 10 minute walk to the harbour.
