Just came back from Smaragdi Studios and i loved it so much i am going to make sure i go back either this year or next year!
We have just come back from 2 weeks staying at Smaragdi. The staff were very friendly, the apartments were basic but clean and had everything we needed. We felt we got the best of both worlds in terms of location as it was quiet at night and the landscape aound the apartments is beautiful with great views of the mountains. It is only about 5 mins walk to the bars and shops in Lambi and about 15-20mins to loads of bars and restaurants in Kos Town. Theres also a mini market opposite the apartments which is really convenient.
I have just spent a week staying in the Smaragdi Studios with my partner and we both thought they were very good. Our apartment was basic but good enough for the time that we actually spent in it. Our balcony faced the sun for most of the day, which was great, and we had a small bath as well as a shower, which is uncommon in Greek accomodation. The only downside for me was that we had two single beds instead of a double-but then that wasn't so bad when the nights were hot. The location was great-10 mins to the beach and approx 15/20 stroll to the harbour and there were plenty of bars and restaurants to pop in on the way. It was also very quiet and we often left our balcony door open during the night without any disturbance. We only had one problem while we were there (a smell started to drift from pipes under the kitchenette sink) but after my partner informed the owner the plumber was called and the offending pipes were cleaned and sealed up by the time we got back after a day out. All in all we think it is a very good place to stay and we would go back there again.
I need the E-mail adress of the appartment for to ask informations and price and the possibility to reserve. Pls could you send the address to my mail? Thanks in advance email@example.com
Great place...great location, spotless apartments. A 15 minute stroll from the delights of Kos Town and then a quick tax ride back from WEST in Barstreet in the early hours of the morning.
I've stayed here twice and enjoyed my time there. The rooms are very basic but good enough for 2 weeks. The enviroment is quiet, without the noise from the (bar)streets and good to reach by bike or scooter. Two showers for the people who are leaving and the staff was amazing! Very kind en friendly. I will go back there again someday.
what a holiday !! the greatest holiday ive ever been on. if your english and sick to death of english women, then kos is the place to go !!
every girl we saw (without exception) was stunning, not that im fussy, but the continentals do it best. the resort is full of swedish, danish, german, and norweigans. there were very few british people on the resort which made it feel like it was a proper holiday.
only when we flew back to gatwick did we know we were going back to britain (from the lack of stunning women on the plane !)
unfortunatly the continentals do it best, there we were on our balcony watching (p**ving) the women around us. you could tell who was who. the continentals were cultured, playing yahtzee, or cards, indulging in the art of conversation. and the brits (the few there were) were rowdy, drunk and arrogant.
anyways for some strange reason the continentals love us brits. its not difficult to pull, and you could end up with a different girl every night. just make sure that you dont meet the girl from the night before, as they seem to beleive that you belong to them for the remainder of the holiday !!
the sophia beach appts were outstanding. the cleaners were fantastic, the bar staff were friendly and fit, and the general maintenance of the hotel/appts were very good.
its also very clean and located in a good place away from the noise.
the local restaurants are also good and cheap compared to the town center. if you see nikos tell him "how did you get on with the v****a ?" from the huntingdon boys.
if you want to go clubbing the best nightclub and probably only nightclub is 'fashion'. if you want to pull and enjoy pub/club style bars, then head up bar street.
overall for a group of lads, you cant beat kos or the sophia beach.
Next year I'm comming back!!! Good service, nice people who always wants to help you. Building 3 with the studio's are perfect for young people, we had always a big party behind the building and have never heard something from the reception!!
i thought that the accomadation was ok but could have done better but the rooms were absoulutley clean i only saw one insect of some kind and it wasnt that big but that was as big as they got. the hotel staff were very kind and made it a pleasnt time there to stay there while is was there for two sunny weeks situated near a quiet but busly town i would recommed this to anyone.

I had the time of my life overhere. Meet some terrefic people (still miss them everyday) in smaragdi. The cleaning was good. The staff was nice and we could have a great pre-party on the field behind the appartments and still don't bother any other guests with noise
The Apartments are not cleaned properly. It is very filthy. The owners are not very polite or cooperative. We did not enjoy or stay at Smaragdi.
My wife and I have been many times to this friendly Hotel/Apartments.The staff are excellent and cannot do enough to make your stay a pleasent one.Smaragdi,Leo,Judy,Maria and all the staff make your stay a pleasure.The location is quiet but within easy reach of all the amenities of kos Town.The local area has many Bars and Restaurants all of good quality.I would recommend these apartments to anyone.To all the staff at Smaragdi ( keep up the good work )and see you soon.
Plenty of fun in the sun to be had at Smaragdi, enjoyment a guarantee, walk to the delights of bar street then grab a cab to get you back to your bed. Or use Smargdi as a base to explore the island.. Leo & judy at reception with there Greek & Aussie charm, 100% the best.
