Do NOT visit this place. Oh I can cope with the bugs that enter the rooms due to the countryside, but what I can't cope with are the COCKROACHES!!!!!!!!!! We were chasing one late at night all by ourselves as there is no one in the reception after 23:00! We told the woman in the reception the next morning and... More

I stayed at Hotel Ikaros for a total of 9 nights as a solo traveller. These are nice basic rooms that are clean and comfortable. Karterados is about a 10-15 minute walk out of Fira, keep in mind that the walk is entirely uphill and usually very hot. I was fine to walk but some might struggle! The local bus... More

We stayed there on the way to catch a very early morning flight. A short stay but made to feel very welcome in trendy budget rooms Staff were very helpful in arranging onward transportation to the airport a ten minute drive away.

Appena tornato da Santorini devo ahimè lasciare una recensione poco positiva su questa struttura. Salvo solo la professionalità della signora che gestisce la pulizia delle stanze. Pure il ragazzo, il più grande dei due presenti, non è stato scortese, tuttavia non è accettabile che ci si scordi di attivare un transfer per l'aeroporto dopo essersi preso l'impegno di farlo. La...

This is a very good basic budget hotel. The room is clean and new and the staff is always willing to help. The only caution I would give is the uphill walk in the heat to get to the main towns. There are also stairs to get to the rooms. If you're older, this may not be the place for... More

I went there with a friend and we booked a twin room bed. We had a driver pick us up from the airport at midnight and it took around 20mins to reach to our hotel. The staff there also was very helpful and friendly. They helped us to book an ATV for a reasonable price for 2 days. This hotel... More

We picked Ikaros as it was in the perfect location for us. Slap bang in the middle of the island you have Fira only 15 minutes walk away or you can drive to the top or bottom of the island within 30 minutes. The rooms were clean and maintained daily to a high standard. If you are looking for a... More

A 5 star review, but dont go expecting a 5 star hotel. Ikaros is simple and basic. Quiet and cute. Cheap and clean. Off the beaten track, so to say, a 15 min wander will get you into Thira to watch the sunset, or bounce around its maze of lanes. On the way, you will walk past plenty of bars... More

I thought my stay at the Hotel Ikaros was simply delightful. Given the price, I'd have to be extremely neurotic to not be very pleased. The hotel, which is down a side street in Karterados, 10 minutes by foot from Thira, is immaculately clean, freshly renovated, & a very pleasant place to be. 2 minutes away on foot is, according...
