Accommodation here runs the gamut from basic guesthouse to upscale hotel.


Nowhere else on the island has the culinary diversity of Kos Town: ouzeries (places that serves ouzo and light snacks), seafood restaurants, kafeneia (coffee houses) and upscale dining.

Drinking & Nightlife

Kos Town has a very lively party scene, focused a block south of the harbour and along the waterfront on Kritika Beach. Locals congregate on weekends to drink coffee and gossip in the cafes on Plateia Eleftherias (Freedom Sq). The cafes and bars around Diagoras Sq are a popular summer haunt.


For high-street-style shops, head to the eastern end of Ioannidi and the pedestrian streets south of Ippokratous.
