We stayed at Ai Yannis for a night during our weekend getaway to the island, and we were truly impressed by the hotel's luxurious assets, yet sincere and warm atmosphere. The level of hospitality by the staff (Anna, an Australian raised Greek, and Yannis), as well as by the owners, was of a high standard; not to mention the cleanliness and comfort which surpassed our expectations. It was definitely worth every cent of the 70 euros we spent.
Staying at Ai Yannis is a perfect choice if one wants to experience the 'island village life' but with all the amenities and comforts of a proper island town outside the touristic town of Chios. The nearby clinic, pharmacies (drug stores), and other amenities you expect in a big town you will find them there too, together with nice coffee places by the seaside, churches, and many sport activities (soccer/football and voleyball) to engage with. There are many walking paths for hiking that lead you to breathtaking views of the sea and the natural landscape (mountains). The number of close-by villages (Ano Kardamyla, Ano Rachi) offers many opportunities to interact with locals and local culture and cuisine. Try, for example, 'Bekris' tavern for grilled meat or 'Geragides' for home cooked food at Upper Kardamyla village, and then Greek coffee from the traditional coffee shop at the square. Also Christina's gorgeous loukoumades (kind of donuts dipped in honey and cinnamon) at the square of downtown Kardamyla, was a great suggestion!
I am sure one needs to spend more than a few days to discover just Kardamyla area (with all nearby villages) which is 25-min drive north from the town of Chios by the seaside main road. Surely one will not get bored at Kardamyla, even if one decides to stay at the hotel enjoying the amazing view of the bay. Perfect for honeymoon couples, pair of couples to enjoy the 2-bedroom suites, and friends sharing the suite. You will need a car to reach Kardamyla, and free parking spaces are available at the hotel. The hotel is well signed from the main road.
