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.
