Our review of Jonathan Studio Apartments in Kos Greece.
Name: Jonathan Studio Apartments, Kos Greece.
Address: Main Street, Tigaki Kos Greece
Date of Stay: 2nd October – 5th October, 2013 3 nights
Booked through: Booking.com
Why we went there?
We chose to move to Kos from Santorini as part of our island hopping around the Greek islands. Kos is a close entry point into Turkey where we intended to spend one month travelling around. Blue Star Ferries ran regular overnight services (saving a day’s accommodation) from Santorini to Kos taking 5.5 hours and costing AUD 36.50 per person.
Why we chose it?
The Jonathan Studio Apartments were a 15 minute taxi ride from the Ferry Port and had good reviews through Tripadvisor and Booking.com. The price was right for us for 3 nights in a double room with unsuited, a small kitchen area with cooker, kettle and fridge. There was also a swimming pool, garden area and beach within a minute’s walk and free Wi-Fi.
What was it like?
We arrived very early in the morning from the overnight ferry ride by taxi to Jonathan Studio Apartments. The family management teams were there to welcome us and allowed us to check in early. After we settled in and walked a breezy short walk to Tigaki in search of breakfast. The Apartments are a 15 minute taxi ride away from Kos Town and a 15 minute walk into the small town Centre of Tigaki. The Apartments were very clean and the grounds maintained well. The swimming pool and surrounding bar area were clean and well maintained. We had a ground floor apartment with a small balcony. The family management was hands on, very helpful and friendly and helped us to familiarize ourselves with the local area.
What was around it?
In Tigaki there is a large supermarket a 5 minute walk out of town, several mini market, a couple of ATMS and one bank. There are plenty of agencies that provide ferry services to the other islands, Turkey and certain tours around the area. There are several good restaurants and bars in town.
We had a daily buffet breakfast at Meni Restaurant which was good value. At night we had dinner at Vassilis Taverna, where we dined on the freshest of fish and an amazing lamb dish done in foil.
Kos Town had supermarkets, lots of good restaurants and shops. The Marina is very busy and has many opportunities to hire boats for local cruises and tours.
The town itself has many archaeological sites to visit around the Marina area and the back streets are great to wander through and explore.
Would we return?
Yes. We would return to Kos and probably stay in Kos town where there are more restaurants and bars to enjoy.
Cost? EUR90/ AUD139 per night
How was the Wi-Fi?
The Wifi was ok but a stronger signal at the bar area near the pool where the router was.
