Orpheus Studios Kos Town
Ultra modern room
The first night, we arrived around 9.00pm and were shown our room. We were blown away with delight at the modern décor, contemporary in design. Very clean and spacious. Within the room a seating area, kitchenette and TV.
The bedroom was huge through an archway. Greeted by the owner’s son at reception. Lift access to the rooms. Allocated a second floor room with sea view.
Restaurants underneath the hotel and in the surrounding area
Upon arrival, we quickly got ready and headed out for a late evening meal. Key access is with a fob for security to the outside door, as well as room key card. Kos town is a 5-10 minute stroll away along a pretty waterfront.
Leaving all too soon, for Nisyros
The next morning, we were due to catch a ferry from Kos port to Nisyros. However, had been informed a few days prior, that the ferry would not be operating until 18 hours later. After some research on the internet and a phone call to Greece, I learned that a boat leaves Kardamaina to Nisyros daily.
So, we caught a taxi and went to a travel agent in Kardamaina and managed to purchase our one way tickets to Nisyros.
Return to Kos from Leros
On our return to Kos, nearly 2 weeks later we had again booked at Orpheus studios for 1 night. Moreover, not only to enjoy a stay here again, but it was convenient when we departed the ferry.
A lovely lady
This time we met Marina, our host. Who we witnessed speaking several fluent languages as other guests before us, were checking in. In addition,we were given an even more spectacular room on the third floor. Similar view, however, much more spacious.
Very modern, neutrally decorated and contemporary still. Several rooms have been completely refurbished.
Plenty of crockery and cutlery, welcome wine in the fridge, kettle, toiletries. All the little touches that make a difference.
Kitchenette as you enter the door, bathroom to the left and an enormous room leading to the balcony. Spotlessly clean. Such comfortable beds.
The next morning as we checked out and were waiting for a hire car for the day, we got chatting to Marina. She informed us about the 2017 earthquake that shook Kos town and surrounding areas. It devastated the harbour area- we had seen cracks and broken concrete in the harbour areas the night before.
The story was heart wrenching and several aftershocks that frightened the locals. During our walk about the town, we could see for ourselves a church dome on the floor all broken, and areas cornered off. Both located by the Planetree Des Hippokrates.
Although both rooms were absolutely stunning, I preferred the second room, only a fraction, just because it was bigger. If we decide to return to Kos, we would love to stay here again. Service impeccable.
