  • It is worth to go and see the Greek style and the charm of the Greek cafes, in the narrow streets there is a plethora of shops, ice cream parlours and interesting Greek buildings.

  • a very busy square full of cafes, it was the busiest "meeting" area for locals especially in the afternoons-evening. not as busy after the earthquake but worth visiting  more »
  • This is the main square in the heart of Kos town. Surrounded by various terraces you can sit, SIP a frappé and people watching:)

Where to stay in Kos Town

Kos Town and its surrounding region offer some of the finest four- and five-star rooms in the Dodecanese. Resort hotels dot the area, providing spacious rooms and access to outdoor pools, fine restaurants, and spa and fitness facilities. All this comes at a price, so if you have a tight budget, consider staying at a family-run guesthouse or good-value hostel. Although they offer smaller rooms and shared restrooms, these establishments keep you close to the sea without costing too much.
