Tucked a couple of blocks in from the waterfront, Sofia's lovingly tended garden alone makes it worth the stay. Swings, shade, trees, flowers and plenty of benches create a quiet oasis...

Golden Sun Hotel
The road from Gialos to Hora may not seem ideal sleeping territory, but this family-run hotel is located just up from the port and lies well down from the road. It overlooks open fields towards the sea. The good-sized rooms are well cared for.
A serious nautical theme lends this place lots of character. Updated, spacious rooms have small balconies and wrought-iron beds with breezy canopies. The location is great, just blocks from the beach and the Old Town, and the breakfast is hearty.
Nissos Ios Hotel
This excellent place has bright and fresh rooms, and wall murals add a colourful touch. Each room has tea- and coffee-making facilities. The welcome is good-natured and the beach is just across the road...
There’s no caldera view, but strong wooden furnishings and traditional carpets give this long-standing hotel a homy feel. It's just metres from the centre of town.
With plenty of trees, and just footsteps from the sea, this is a decent place to pitch your tent. It's at the north end of the Parikia waterfront and there are free transfers to and from town. There's also an on-site restaurant, shop and laundry.
A pleasant family-run hotel with good rooms at the southern end of town.
Golden Beach Studios
This place is a bargain. Well located for Agios Georgios, the spacious, well-kept rooms have a distinct old-school Bavarian feel and all have kitchenettes and balconies. The very friendly owner could well have been your mum in another life.
Down a short, quiet lane from the beach, this small hotel has clean, no-fuss rooms and well-equipped apartments. Be sure to request a sea-view balcony.
A short stroll out of Hora, but far enough away to offer a little peace, are these fresh, sparkling rooms. Private balconies and a beautiful pool are the icing on the cake...
