Soaking up the sun by the pool before enjoying a drink in a harbour-side restaurant under the ramparts of a medieval castle… The Kosta Palace Hotel in Kos Town is perfect for the Greek island holiday you’ve always dreamed of.
With a choice of rooms, including self-catering apartments for larger parties, the Kosta Palace Hotel is beautifully fitted out and good value for its four-star rating. All rooms come with summer air-con, TV, hairdryer, fridge, bath and shower, and balcony views. There’s free Wi-Fi in public areas.
Staff at a 24-hour reception can help out with everything from renting a bike for the day – or car hire if you want to sit back – to advice on getting to know Kos Town.
It’s the setting that really catches the eye though. Close to the harbour that is the ancient centre of this pretty island capital, many of the Kosta Palace’s balconies look out over bobbing yachts to the town’s castle.
Kos is one of the most popular Greek island destinations. It’s one of the larger islands, so it’s possible to enjoy a real mixture of experiences, from busy resorts full of lively bars and restaurants to secluded coves and stunning ancient history.
As the capital Kos Town probably has the best of the island’s historic sites, including a well-preserved Roman theatre, the 13th-century castle, and a tree that claims descent from the one under which Hippocrates, the ancient founder of the medical profession, is said to have taught his students.
Among the island’s best beaches are Kardamena and Kefalos on the south coast. Kos Town’s own beach, Zouroudi, is popular, with plenty to do above a stretch of sand and pebbles. Lambi beach is one of the most highly rated local alternatives, and the thermal springs at Embros, give an extra – and possibly healthy – attraction to that beach.
Kos Town offers a fantastic variety of attractions – historic, modern, even international if you throw in a short ferry trip to Bodrum in Turkey – and the Kosta Palace Hotel puts visitors right at the heart of a perfect Greek island experience.
