Liked: Amazing pool and bar area. Great views, with the hotel being located on top of a big hill. Perfect location, half way between the town centre and the main beach, easy wlaking distance to both. Nick was very helpful, giving out restaurant recommendations, travel advice ect.. Maggage service was brilliant and very cheap. 30 euro for 60 minutes or 40 euro for 90 minutes!!

Disliked: Had to change rooms after our first night.

Liked: Hotel Hermes was a fantastic place to stay in Ios. The location was amazing as you could walk easily to Myoplatas Beach and Far Out while also having a short 10 minute walk into the town. The property was well maintained, rooms and air-conditioning and the pool area was great. The Pool Bar also served great food and drinks at good prices.

Liked: Location was good, walking distance to the beach and to town/nightlife. Pool and bar/cafe was awesome. Crazy Ruth makes delicious food all day. Cheap drinks. Good value for money.

Disliked: Buffet breakfast at the top cafe was average, not worth the money.

Liked: The location is prefect. Right between the town and the beach so both are an easy walking distance for beaching during the day (you can catch a bus back up the hill for 1.60 euro if you feel lazy) and partying in the town at night. The pool is wondeful with a great atmosphere, great view and a good place to meet people. The pool bar serves lots of great food (and cocktails) so you don't have to go far if you get hungry. The staff are really friendly and helpful (my friend left part of her luggage behind and they put it on the next ferry). Highly recommend this place!

Liked: Hermes was exactly what we wanted! I went to ios with 8 friends and all of us absolutely loved it! To start with nick the Greek 'the boss' couldn't have been more helpful, he took us to and from the ferry port and also dropped us into the village every evening at half 12! Hermes is in the best location, right in-between the beach and the village, and only a short walk to either... The view from the pool like they advertise has to be one of the best on the island, looking over the sea ad the main beach it's amazing! We had no problems at all with the rooms or the service, nicks mum who is at the reception was always very helpful and kind. If your looking to go for a party holiday Hermes is a great place but then if you want a quiet relaxing holiday it Would be great too as it's away from all the noise in the village.

Disliked: Nothing. Highly recommended and cheap too!

Liked: Loved the views, the proximity to Chora and Mylopotas beach, Internet access, and the transfers to and from the ferry port. Also loved the buffet breakfast the hotel offers on Sundays for a low price -- was a great deal!

Disliked: The swimming pool was not yet filled and the pool deck & bar still weren't ready for the season. This was not a big deal for us, though, since we could still use the comfy lounge chairs for sunbathing, but had to do it with workers busy assembling the umbrellas and doing other work close by. Other people staying at the hotel at the same time commented about being disappointed the pool was not yet open, but with the beach so close, we didn't mind. The hotel just would have looked far nicer had all the facilities been ready during our stay.

12 April 2010 Luke would recommend this property

Liked: balcony with ocean view was great, breakfast was a reasonable price (compared to other islands) and there was a great selection but everything we ordered was cold (including the coffee...). Absolutely empty island in the off season which meant we had beaches to just the two of us which was nice but it was too cold and windy to really use them. Still, very peaceful. Recommend visiting UNIQUE restaurant for the food and the AMAZING view. (ask Nikko!)

Liked: Two female travellers, we visited Ios in off-season, and unfortunately we were greeted by a ghost-town! Can't believe it was so quiet! Far from being disappointed with our stay, Nik at Hermes ensured that we thouroughly enjoyed it! Nik's cocktails are DELICIOUS, which we drank while Nik taught us how to play backgammon. We ended up beating him! Nice hotel, balcony overlooking the pool - would be perfect in middle of summer. Short walk to the beach and into town. We had ferry issues on our day of departure and Nik was kind enough to take us back to the hotel to store our bags for the day, then take us down to the port once again. Thanks Nik!!
