Operating all year round, built in a superb location in the center of the city, right on the seafront and with all its rooms facing the magnificent view of the sea, «Kos Aktis» is a unique destination for every traveler. For a couple looking for a two-day getaway during winter, for someone traveling due to work and needs a place to rest, for a cyclist exploring new place on two wheels, for all those who wish to experience authentic, ancient Greek hospitality, at least for once. Since 2005, when it was founded, the hotel has become one of the top destinations for those seeking for a daily contact with the sea.
Its thirty six rooms and six suites, equally divided into three floors, are overlooking the city of Halicarnassus which is located right next to the Greek borders. When relaxing on his spacious balcony during the day, the traveler may enjoy the lively colors of the sun in the beautiful sky and during the evening, he may enjoy the silence of the night while staring at the bright stars. If there is a full moon, he is able to admire the reflection of the moon to the undisturbed, dark blue color of the sea.
The oldest hotel on the island, «Albergo Gelsomino», stands on the left side of «Kos Aktis» since 1927. On the right side, there is a cycling path which leads to the marina of the island and opposite of the hotel's main entrance, the enormous fig tree dominates the park of Vasileos Georgiou street. With no doubt, glass is the element which characterizes the general construction of the hotel. The windows on the corridors and rooms make it perfectly bright and allow an unconfined communication between the hotel with the surrounding environment. The thick glass on the balconies transforms the outer room dividers into perfectly aligned canvases, where the sky is reflected with different colors each time. If you look at them from a distance, they look like pendulous paintings. Lastly, on the ground floor, the sliding glass doors at the bar-restaurant «H20» offer the impression that tables are floating on the sea. In other words, no matter where the traveler stands into the hotel, he can either admire the water or observe the various stimulus occuring outside the building.
Besides, this was the original goal. All dynamic images created continuously from the combination of water motion and light intensity should be able to circulate freely. This way, the traveler senses that his environment is constantly changing even though it actually remains the same.
