Ireni II Studio Apartments

Accommodation in Tingaki

Helen B          10/10

Just came back from here, we spent a week in total, me and my boyfriend (ages 32 and 33), and it was a very very nice place, clean, spacious and quiet.  It has recently been renovated, so has that nice new feeling. The pool was quiet most days and very easy to get a lounger no matter what time of day.  We met English and Dutch here, both equally friendly.  I had read reports that the pool strictly closes at 6, but this wasnt the case, people were still lounging at 7 on some evenings. The family were pleasant, we were given a room with infamous reviews about the dodgey air con, but after requesting a change, we were given a room with a pool view, so were very happy. Beer in the bar is cheaper than most bars in the resort. Will definately recomend this place to anyone, and will go back if we ever decide to revisit Kos (it was lovely, but theres so many places to see in the world, we tend not to go back somewhere twice) Go to 7 days bar and see Irini -she is mad and lovely! (if you go with Kosmar, you may have your welcome meeting here) and go to Margarita bar which is up past the main supermarket (heading away from beach) on the right, a little jewel owned by Lefte, the nicest, funniest and most sincere chap we have ever met!  Also note that this hotel is actually called Kaloudis, so do a search under this name too, it does have its own website.

hi everyone it's a lovely apartment and would stay there all year round if that was possible haha.  we had a pool view and our apartment were clean and the people were very nice. we also rented air conditioning which was a big help. the resturants was ok but we went to a resturant called scala which was opposite the beach. the staff were freindly one night my little sister fell asleep so the staff put two tables together so we could rest her on their while we finished off our meal. the beach was superb illios was the man in charge off the sun beads he was lovely and a joker. he walked around with a fart machine and was having a laugh with everyone. the weather was perfect. we went in june or july time. would strongly recommend to family's with little to children to be care ful on the beach as when my family was their me and ny dad found at least ten dead jelly fish but this was only on one ocassion. great holiday we are going back this year.

 just spent 2 weeks at this place and will never go again. 

 
The apartment was clean and enough space for a family off 4, and the pool area was lovely. 
 
The family who ran the hotel did not smile the whole 2 weeks, Tony the head off the family did not charge you the same price for a round off drinks in the evening once.
 
You had to be up before 8am, to get a bed by the pool that day.
 
 This Accomodation is mainly booked by the Dutch who are not the friendliest lot.
 
The air con for the 2 weeks was 140 euro the most we have ever paid anywhere. 
 
Our children (age 7 & 9) where told off in the pool for making to much noise at 3 in the afternoon.

Oh my gosh!

I have left recent posts, on the second page. I love this hotel! I was so young, I am now 10
God, but do I have memories of Kos! A few of the best years of my young, short life were spent there!
I wonder what it is like now.. Anyone been recently? For the past 3 years we haven't gone on holiday but this year we went to Rhodes [Sun Palace Hotel] which was great. It was a change, normally in Kos I was used to entertaining myself, and going out to eat. I remember walks beside the pool with my Baby Annabell Doll and my Mum, tehe! I also remember we used to sit beside the pool (Me and Baby Annabell!) and I used to dip her feet in..
Hey hey hey! You never know, maybe when I'm older I'll be going to Kos! Just got my 11+ results, HOPE TO GO IN THE SUMMER TO KOS! Haven't been for AGEES  Oh well, won't you be glad to see me back (hopefully!) The only reason we went to Rhodes was because my friend, who I was going with and her mum were used to entertainment, and at Kos, its normally very quiet, just me and my family. So this time we set off to Rhodes! Which was fantastic, but then again I probably can't remember how fantastic Kos was!
Anyway Big Up to THALIA AND VICKY! Yay, the best girls there! Oh, but now, don't take this the wrong way! I like the rest of the family too!
WOO I'LL BE BACK !
Lots of love,
    Julia..
Ps. YOU ROCK!

We spent 2 weeks in August this year and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The Irini 2 apartments are spotless, well equiped and very spacious. They are cleaned daily and towels were changed 3 times during our stay.
The pool is kept clean, there are plenty of beds... no need to get up at the crack of dawn to reserve a bed. The pool bar caters for drinks and snacks, and our apartment was only a stones throw away.
Tingaki is a quiet resort. A main road lined with bars and restaurants. Not many shops really but a nice resort. The beach is a 5 min walk from the apartments and is lovely. Very clean and has a lovely breeze.
All restaurants are fine. We ate in a different place every night and never had a disappointing meal.
Before our meal we would enjoy a 2 euro cocktail at the Karma bar where Nico was very friendly and became "God" to our son Jack!
Have a lovely holiday... you won't be disappointed with Tingaki.

Ireni II ................well what can you say about the apartments, the lovely family who own and run it, the complex, the area......just FABULOUS

Been two years on the run and going again in September (God willing).  The family are so friendly and not at all grumpy like stated in a previous message from a past visitor.  They run the whole business on their own with help from very socialble domestics.  Even lovely to see Ireni's mum and dad calling in for a drink with them during the daytime.
 
Vicky and Thalia, the daughters are a delight to meet and cannot do enough for you (especially Vicky). Adonis and his wife Ireni keep the smooth running of the apartments in good form and you can guarantee one of Adonis's free drinks at the end of the evening.  He may look grumpy but considering he does about 18 hours work a day.....you'd be grumpy too, but I can promise you he's a top guy.
 
The pool area is the nicest I have seen in all the locations and hotels I have stayed in since I first travelled abroad in 1986 and the cleanliness of the public areas is excellent.
 
How anyone can say they dont like it in the  Ireni II is beyond me. Incidentially, if it was that bad there would be vacancies all the time....but go on.....see if you can book and it full up all the time. Dosen't that say something for them...People go back time after time and book well in advance.
 
Wish I could pack my bags and go and live their.
 
I wish them all the very best for the future
 
God Bless to Ireni, Adonis, Vicky and Thalia

We have stayed 3 years running now  -  October, September and this year June.   It is absolutely brilliant place  -  the family cannot do enough for you.  My husband was ill this year and Vikki took us to the hospital -  no problem at all.  I only wish all the guests who stay there would appreciat their hard work and honesty!!!   Roll on September when we will all meet up there again.

We just got back this morning and the apartments were great. The pool is cleaned every night at 6 and all the surrounding area hosed down. The room was cleaned 6 days a weeks, bins emptied every day and towels and bed linen changed twice. Safe boxes only cost 24 for 2 weeks and most apartments have aircon - if not you can hire fans. Granted the owner was a bit of a misery guts but he was in reception from 9 every morning and was still there way after midnight every night. On airport days he even gets up in the middle of the night to show guests to their rooms.

A tip though - if you do have a late flight home DON'T wait until the Saturday morning to book your room, see the lovely girl on reception on Friday evening as they only have 2 or 3 rooms that they move you to - this costs 25. You can keep your own room until 6pm for 15 though if you don't need a late late room. And lastly take loads of mozzy stuff the locals say that hey are particularly bad this summer.
 
Enjoy your holidays and visit Glenda, the girls and Miley the parrot in the Beer Garden for the best night out with kids.

We are going to the Ireni 2 Apartments and have heard that you have to take your own bath and hand towels! Is this true?? Can anyone help??

Kate P           

We have just got back from 2 weeks at the Irini II, while the apartments and pool were lovely they only changed the sheets once in the whole 2weeks which I didn't think was good enough really and the owners and their daughters were miserable and never smiled once!! apart from that we had a great holiday and Tingaki is a lovely place. Everybody should go to the Meni Taverna, the food and the people are great.

One good thing, there is air-conditioning now at 5 euros a day, well worth getting when it's so hot

me and another 12 members of my family stayed here in 2003. We absolutely loved it, its for all ages. Our party bhad people as old as 50 to 4 year old kids. The pool bar is quite expensive but worth it. There is a children pool and some swings, slide and a roundabout next to the pool for them. You must visit the Mascot Bar.

the ireni 11 studios were lovely. the family is very nice, they try so hard to help you with everything. Adonis the owner is a happy friendly person, his wife ireni is very nice and the two girls, vicky and thalia are absolutely fantastic. You would have to go along way to meet such a happy caring family. We went there in 2003 again in 2004 and are hopefully going twice in 2005.
The studios and apartments are lovely and clean, the snack bar is very good and the pool is excellent. The bar in the hotel is very friendly, its like going into a friends home, they make you feel very welcome.

The apartments are situated in the main street of Tingaki with the tavernas, bars and tourist shops. The beach is about a 6-7 min easy walk away. The apartments are spotless and cleaned every day. The bedding was only changed once a week which was a shame with it being August and extremely hot. We were lucky to have had a room overlooking the pool which is absolutely stunning. There is a small pool suitable for toddlers and a larger pool which has a shallow end. The pool did close at 6pm which is unfortunate but that is the owners rules. There is a poolside bar serving hot and cold drinks and snacks at very reasonable prices. The owner can come across as being miserable although i don't think its intentional. His daughters work there and they speak very good english and are very helpful. There is no air conditioning here but you can rent fans at 11 euros a week. It is fairly quiet here with no disturbance from the main street, the only nuisance was the cockerel early in the morning!

We stayed here in June 2004. Apartments handy for all bars, restuarants and the beach. Bus stop right outside for Kos Town. Owners very friendly. The apartments were kept spotlessly clean.
