“Wonderful hotel, great owners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

I believe that the people of morning star are very welcoming and helpfully. I stayed there for 3 days and was satisfied in their new and clean rooms, but that shower with hydro massage was the best of all. The pool in the back was very quiet and I relaxed under the umbrellas! I will definitely go again and suggest it to my friends, special thanks to nick for his help and good breakfast !!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We stayed in Morning Star for several days in August. It is a very welcoming and friendly hotel with modern amenities. Morning Star is a family hotel and the owners do their best to make one feel happy and at home. There is good and tasty breakfast, swimming pool, good aircon and shower pressure in the room.

About the room: we were first assigned a double room which had one big bed. For some reason it was very uncomfortable to sleep on it as the mattress was not very strait. We asked to change to twin room and after that the sleep quality was much better.

The rooms are of good size, very clean and modern and have nice balconies.

Two things to watch out for: there is no free wi-fi in the hotel,, they provide a free computer in the lobby or one can buy prepaid cards for wi-fi which are quite pricey. The location of the hotel is only good if one rents a car. We were careless not to book a car in advance and because of high season we were unable to get any car on arrival. Finally we had to take taxis both to beach and to Chios town. It is only 5-10 minutes ride but you do end up paying 5-10 Euro every time you go somewhere. Otherwise, location is fine and quiet - the sea is nearby, you can see the sea from the balcony, there is also big supermarket 2 min walk from the hotel which is very convenient.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel during 1 week. The room is big, clean and with AC. Bathroom is very modern.
Breaksfast is good, everything is home-made. I would have appreciated some fresh fruits.
And on top of everything, the staff of the hotel, who is a family, is very nice.
Nick was a great tour guide, he also arranged the car rental for us.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Chios.
It is very close to the airport but no noise. 10 min drive from Chios harbour and 10 min drive from Karfas beach.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

This family hotel was a truly surprise and I would like to recommend it to anyone visiting Chios town. We chose it because both it is close to the airport and is cheap (45EUR room including breakfast), and believe me I did not expect what I found.

First of all, the service. The owner is the perfect host, he made us feel at home from the very first moment we arrived. Speaking an excellent english (he told us he lived in San Francisco for 25 years), he arranged several things for us (car drop-off, taxis, etc.) always with a smile on his face, and when he knew that our flight was departing early he insisted to make us coffee and have orange juice an biscuits ready for us before check out.

As for the hotel itself, it has been recently refurbished so everything is, and looks as, new: reception desk, lifts and specially the rooms. These were big and clean, with excellent soundproof isolation (the hotel is in the road to the airport), good beds, flat tv, nice shower and bathroom, locker, fridge and plenty of space for your cloths and belongings. The whole place was very, very clean, which is something I specially need to know if I am about to decide between two or more hotels. The place is just steps from the sea and has a swimming pool but as you can imagine, a rainy night in october is not the best moment to have a sunbath :) It is not far from the city center (7EUR a taxi ride to the port) which is very convenient too. A shame that the internet wif connection was not free of charge :(

As I said, a nice surprise with unbeatable value for money. Give it a try if staying in Chios.
