“Thank you amazing little find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

After paying for 3 nights £180 somewhere else and having to leave because 2 star hotel was horrific , we asked about and found this little gem of a place for €35 per night ! Basic , so clean , 2 balconies so lovely breeze running thru , tiny kitchen , impeccable and lovely bathroom ! Little Greek lady ( owner ) simply gorgeous and so proud of her apartments . So wish I'd found it at the start of our holiday x hire a car , check out sunny , camel beach and buy ur own breakfast and stay at fania ! Perfect quiet location close to Marina and amazing restaurants ! Forget half board full board I would highly recommend this place and the area ( we travelled all over the island ) thanks

We had a wonderful week in Kardamena. Clean apartments, very clean. Wifi Free. Not a luxury choice, but what you book it's what you get. Located near The beach, in The center of the city. Next to markets, restaurants, shops. Fania is a very kind person.

We booked a last minute holiday to Kos for myself, partner and son and we were booked into the Fania apartments for 3 person accommodation.
The bad bits:
We had a two person room with an extra bed which made for very cramped conditions. There was no provision made for three people in terms of cups, cutlery, etc. The owner explained that this was because according to the tourist board, they don't have to provide additional items!
The room was only cleaned once (on second day) during our stay. We ended up using our own towels and laundering them ourselves.
The balcony area was over run with beetles (see photo) which were about the size of a 10p piece! It was a battle to keep them out of the room!
There is a notice on the wall in the room which states that any damage in the room will cost over 500 Euros (see photo).
The owners were not around much throughout our stay and when they were, they were only interested in trying to get more money - additional charge for use of room safe, additional charge for air con, etc. We had a 'heated discussion' with the owners when they tried to say that we had arrived a day earlier than we actually had and would have to pay for the room for an extra day! Then as we had we had a late flight, they wanted 25 Euros each to keep the room for 6 hours!
I now understand why we were the only the people in the apartments for the whole week!
The good bits:
Good location with easy walking distance into the main restaurant and bar area of Kardemena.
There is a supermarket just at the end of the road for all your supplies.

Two other recommendations:
Nemo Restaurant is bar far the best place to eat out in Kardamena, with huge portions at excellent prices!
Manos Car Hire is well worth checking out if you want to tour the island and Veronica there is really nice and helpful.

Room Tip: Choose alternative accomodation

best place to stay in kardamena

I am the owner of fania apartments i didn't want to enter to this process to answer in this slanderous libel to my apartments I only make and only for the re-establishment of truth.The apartments belong to a small family who take pride in their work and want to offer you the best. They are friendly and willing to help you and will always be somewhere around the apartments making sure they are to your liking.
these three people was not for fania apartments because their closed the last moment and sent to us, We normally opened based travel agency CONTRACT ON June 25 that was Wondering why you were only the people in the apartments for the whole week!
All that you write are lies and they do out of revenge because they pay in the tourist office 6 DAYS and the room you stay 7 days for the policy of the tourist office is that if the CLIENT DAYS stayed longer pays. was so bad that people from our revenge spoil TOASTER not their MONEY We asked for this. The room selected for the economy, came with his friend and son and stay at a room,if they wanted a suite room to be lived in Hilton. what they say about the paper of damage have posted from tourist guides because many CLIENTS go to bars and drink and broken THE DOORS and glasses and chairs.about cups and various other utensils to be cared
for and we brought three people, SHEETS and TOWELS arrogant every three days.about beetles, there was not beetles there are mosquitoes are there in ALL countries where they came THESE HOLIDAYS and do not know the mosquitoes; all these lies and ridiculousness are written just for revenge because pay more money. AND WE GO
Vacations Cross the europe ,know that if the rooms above DAYS PAY THEY UNFORTUNATELY, but do not know HOLIDAYS.
Sorry about YOU!

I don't know what the other review is on about sying it should be demolished. so glad I take reviews with a pinch of salt. True you have to pay for air con which is a bit steep at fifty euros other places were offering it cheaper but only for about forty. And you def need air con if going in august. Of course those people got bit at night if they didnt have air con and what did they expect hotels etc to do about mossies anyone???

To keep the room on if you have a rubbish flight time you also need to pay but that depends how long you want it for. The lady there was lovely, very pleasant and she came in and cleaned every other day.

The location is fantastic right near everything but not in the middle of it so you don't get any noise. You can have your choice of pools. we went to Bubble pool first day and that was very nice but after we found Kool pool we only went to tht one and didnt try any more cos it was so good. The family there were brill and they offer accomodation too.

We were pleased with fania it was basic but that is all you need it was clean and peaceful and central and the people were really nice so if you are staying here don't worry and I am glad it is not demolished! Long live fania apartments!!

fania should be demolished i have never in my life stayed in such a terrible accomodation - i would have slept on the beach for the week if only they wouldnt chuck me off the sunbeds in the evening - the conning lady in charge was trying to get 50 euros for the air cond. we had a tea towel between us to use in bathroom and she didnt change that nor the sheets until half way through the holiday - first choice should be ashamed of themselves for even letting people go there !! only good thing was that the fridge worked and if you let it open you had some cool air in the room - we caught colour by the red swells of being eaten alive in the evening by the bed bugs and believe me i am not lying!! we became rebels and sneaked a fan in which we hid everyday back in the suitcase - not very nice people looking after the accommodation my daughter was worried how the man in charge kept on looking at her !!! creepy or what! kettle what kettle we had one saucepan where the handle was dangerously coming off on a little 2 ring stove.. one teaspoon and one cup, plate etc. each no spares at all but then who needed this crockery as they were stinking anyway.. I reccommend you go anywhere in Kos but not FANIA apartments.....

I am the owner of fania apartments i didn't want to enter to this process to answer in this slanderous libel to my apartments I only make and only for the re-establishment of truth.The apartments belong to a small family who take pride in their work and want to offer you the best. They are friendly and willing to help you and will always be somewhere around the apartments making sure they are to your liking.
The apartmens are brand new very clearly and the lasts years they have become terrible changes and have been added all essential for your needs to stay, as Kitchenette (with 2 cooking rings) dishes spoonful fork glasses. In each room they are, Air- Condition,Toaster, Refrigerator Hairdryer, Color tv ,Kettle ,the rooms they are cleaned every day and be aired they sunny with big balcony, as for the beds there are very clean and the sheets changes 3 times at the week.
As regards their bugs in your beds assure there are not exist these are the bigger lies i've ever heard, that you believed bugs there are simple mosquitos they exist in the all countries, in your country they don't exist? Other than you are so drunk and you could not discriminate. The negatively criticize do not have no relation with the reality and the persons that wrote thesewill be ashamed and i feel sorry for them.As for pay for stay overnight and pay for air-condition, this difine from tourist-travel not us.
Concrete that write those had drunk so much that no only broke panes, doors ,chairs, and when we go at the morning and found all in the street ,but also bothered the other guest. Their has accepted sanctions from the tourist -travel,chase away them for the troubles that their made and because had drunk so much come the police. I hope when they wrote those had not drunk so much as lot as when they remained in our apartments.And now for reasons revenge trying slander and libel us. The last years it exists all night and all day reseption and it does not exist problems.
we work a lot of years and they have stay a lot of people in our apartments and remained satisfied and their come again and again every season.
And i close with a request in those that enter in the labour to write these stupidities and the lies for this slanderous libel at my apartments,first they make a self criticism if their worthy and capable people to go summer hollidays and second if they can respect the foreigner fortune without causing damage and destructions in any apartments.
