I stayed in the hotel in August of 2013 and it remains the worst hotel experience ever. The owners were behaving as if they didn't want to host us, were awfully rude and not helpul at all. We were extra charhed for an air-conditioner which proved to be a huge portable unit that you cannot use because of the noise... More

The view is average compared to f.e. Cavos Bay. There was no aircondition and the electric fan was rusty and not clean. The worst was the smell of cellar, bad ventilatin, cigarette and respiration. The owner tried his best, but this hotel is definitely a fallen star.

We spent five nights at this nice hotel. Clean and with good service and nice rooms with a fantastic view. Very relaxing and peaceful and with a very good beach in walking distance. We will surely coma back to this wonderful island.

Booked a room after reading comments here. Booking was made more than one month in advance for the part of our holiday in Ikaria for one week. Got a very small room at the back of the hotel where a door opens to ground floor. No air conditioner in the room. Very noisy ventilator and fridge. Only way to ventilate... More

Although I arrived late in the evening,I received a nice welcome. The next morning I was surprised by the spectacular view from the balcony of my room.The hotel has a very quiet location,while the tavernas by the sea are only a short walk away.The owner takes personally care of his guests and is very accommodating.In short, a very pleasant place...

You must be willing to walk for about 20 minutes from Gialiskari and it's restaurants to reach the Ikaros Star. But once there you have a stunning view over the sandy Mesakti beach and Armenistis town. It can get hot in the afternoon as the hotel faces south-west but then you may enjoy a great sunset from your balkony. You... More

A very good choice to stay if you visit Ikaria. Situated on a hill at the north side of the island (Gialiscari) which is the best, amazing view if you select sea view rooms and inexpensive. Clean rooms with fritz and hair dryer. I didn't need A/C cos is cool in the night. 5-6 parking positions only and no elevator... More
