What a great Stay. Easily found, down a quiet road near the port. Katerina welcomes you and nothing is too much trouble. I asked for an extra pillow and a kettle and cups and they came with a smile. The place is clean and well equipped with a good breakfast for 7 €. Really amazing value.

We had a great time at Ios and Avra Pension is a fantastic place to stay. Katerina is such a sweet and lovely lady, she'll do anything to make your stay memorable. Breakfast is superb and the location is perfect; away from partytown Chora but only 20 minutes (walking) /5 minutes (by scooter) away. Close to the port without the...

I booked this after reading all the previous good reviews and was not disappointed. Only minutes from the Small Port, and Sandy Beach, tucked down a small lane in a quiet location. Local Restaurants nearby, and close to the Bus Station to get around to other parts of the Island. The Pension is excellent, Nice Room, Hot Water, A/C, clean...

We were made very welcome. The accommodation is simple and clean with air conditioning, a fridge and a balcony with table. Breakfast at a small extra charge was excellent. Located in a quiet area near to the port, close to restaurants and a short uphill walk to the Chora. We would definitely go back if we are in Ios again.

We stayed for 5 days in the middle of May. We'd been there the previous year. And Katerina was as hospitable as ever. As far as we are concerned the location of the Avra Pension cannot be bettered. It is at the heart of the pretty port town but set back 80 metres from the front down a quiet lane....

We sailed into Ios after a disastrous trip to Santorini and my partner and I really needed a night on our own off the yacht so we decided to head to Avra Pension as it was near the marina and out of the noisy Chora. I can only reiterate what previous reviews have said in so far as the host...

Excellent and in a very convenient position. Out of the main town so a quiet position yet within two minutes of the port with it's bars and restaurant. Easy and cheap bus if you wish to pay the town or Mylopota a visit

We were met by Katerina at the port which was a nice personal touch as pension is very near to Port. Katerina gave us a very informative booklet on IOS and also a local map where she pointed out places of interest and the walkway up to the horio. We found our room to be very comfortable with good mattress...
