As the tallest building in the city, Alexandra offers amazing views of the harbor, the medieval castle and various city gardens. It is located in the centre of Kos town, 100m from the harbor and 400m from cosmopolitan beaches with exciting water sports. Also, close at hand are the castle, the museum and important archaeological sites, as well as merry entertainment at night. Despite its superb central location, the hotel inside is calm and quiet.
Hotel Astron is situated on the graphic harbour of Kos, in a beautiful location with splendid view, 300 metres away from the sandy beach of Kritika. The hotel was recently completely renovated (2002), while all common areas are fully air-conditioned.

Reviews of Town, Kos
matthew.buick 19 Sep 2012Kos CastleThis is a lovely old castle, with a very reasonable entrance fee, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be very careful when crossing the walkway bridge to get into the castle. It is very rickety, and the fences MUST NOT be leaned upon. Also, there are no safety fences anywhere in the castle itself, so please be very very careful near the castle walls, or any other edges.
Roger_Hill 21 Nov 2007Kos Town is a good all round resortAlways take my main holiday in Greece. I chose Kos Town as I had visited on a day trip from Kardamena many years ago and it seemed a good resort. Additionally, research on the internet indicated that it would be the type of resort I like, lively with a choice of nightlife and beaches.
Kos Town is a good all round resort. There are various historical sites to see. There are several beaches to choose from, which although not the greatest, are sandy and provide all you could need (Tigaki beach , also Angelika beach on main Kos Town). The nightlife is good with a mixture of lively music cars/clubs in Bar Street but also a good choice of quieter, more relaxing bars for those that prefer that (Four Roses, Kos Town - very friendly service). There is also a good local bus service linking Kos Town to the neighbouring Lambi and Psalidi and also buses further afield. I only went to Tigaki approximately 15 minutes) where there is a wonderful sandy beach and lovely child friendly shallow waters.
Good choice of restaurants serving Greek and international food. Stadium (near the Marina) was very high standard and Sunrise (near the tourist office) was also very good. Service in all restaurants was good. Food in the beach bars was also of a high standard Grabanna/Tarzan are examples). Don't go all-inclusive as you miss out on discovering the area. With all inclusives you deprive the local businesses of much needed trade.
