Historic Sites Sightseeing Nature
Situated on a tiny island big on history and culture, Kos Town sits in an area dotted with well-preserved ancient ruins. Just a short boat ride from the coastline of Turkey, the town offers immaculate beaches, fine shops, trendy bars, and comfortable hotels. The past and present collide within the narrow backstreets of this small but lively settlement, where cosmopolitan cafes sit shoulder-to-shoulder with family-run taverns established ages ago. Make Kos Town your urban base on the island, and split your time between basking on the beaches and exploring the interior's woody hillsides and verdant valleys. When using our Greece itinerary planner, you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

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.
