We had a nice stay at Effie hotel. They had a basic breakfast buffet which was quite good. It's quite centrally located with the port only about 5 mins away by foot. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were kept clean throughout our stay.

Very cute clean hotel with good basic service for a short stay and quiet except for an occasional early morning motorcycle. Nice people. Breakfast was typical limited continental European style. The bathroom was really small. The balcony was private.

The owner was sharp, abrupt. Never gave me a receipt after paying cash, my room upon arrival had the previous guests pubic hairs on the floor. The room was badly cleaned, towels not put back to have a shower you had to sit and all the water was all over the bathroom so you had to clean it up. The... More

Nice hotel in good location. Clean and functional - breakfast OK. Owner and family friendly, stayed 6 nights. Great sea view from balcony a convenient base from which to explore Patmos. It was quiet as slightly set back from sea front.

The owner of the hotel can pick you up and bring you back to the port if you can inform him beforehand. Nothing specially wrong or good about the hotel but you definitely get what you need from a hotel. Motorcycle noise is a problem of Patmos, not specific to this hotel. But still can affect your sleep quality. Breakfast... More
