We stayed here for 3 days, Yianni and the family were very helpful. The rooms were large and everything you could want was provided. Yianni picked us up at the port and his brother dropped us back when we left. It was well situated for the tavernas, may need to consider that it is at the top of a steep hill. There is a lift in the hotel which helps when you have a few suitcases.

We just returned from Karpathos and stayed at this lovely family-run hotel for 8 days. Initially we had just wanted to stay for 1 or 2 nights and then travel on to a different island. But after having been there for 1 night we changed our plans and stayed on. The atmosphere there is great and so are the hosts – very hospitable, generous (we got spoiled with home-made cakes) and always ready to assist, no matter what. The rooms are very nice too, all furnished with a balcony and a beautiful view and it takes you only 2 to 5 minutes to get to the harbour or "downtown" Karpathos. If you go to Karpathos, don't miss out on the Amarylis Hotel!

Only stayed here for one night, but it was great and could have stayed longer. Very reasonable priced, I arrived by boat and Yanni was there to pick me up and take me to port next day. Yanni was so helpful and a mind of information. Very central for everything in the town, hill is a bit steep so maybe not for anbody with disabilities, but inside hotel there is a lift. Would definitely book again

I spent a lovely week at the Amarylis in August 2006. This isn't a fancy hotel by any means, as Karpathos isn't a resort hotspot. However, it was clean and quiet and run by very friendly people who made our stay a very pleasant one.

We had a large double room with two twin beds which were comfortable despite being on the small side. There was a small kitchenette, a TV with local stations and a couple of international ones, a sitting area, bathroom with a stand-up shower and air conditioning which could be controlled from inside the room. The balcony had a partial view of the rest of the town and the sea beyond and a small sitting area as well. It was very quiet and definitely a relaxing place to stay.

While the space in the room could possibly have been better utilized for more closet space and a larger bathroom, as a whole the place was wonderful. When the AC started leaking one night, the problem was resolved quickly, though often the AC was not needed at all with the island's strong breeze. Downstairs, the small but modest lobby was decorated just like a local living room, and also featured a small snack bar area for a drink or a sandwich. There were no meals per se, but the room was inexpensive and right in the midst of Pigadia, literally a two minute walk from many restaurants and cafes as well as the taxi stand.

The family that owns the hotel was always present and was especially helpful, arranging for a cab anytime we needed to get anyplace and occasionally leaving some fresh fruit for us in the room as well.

The main drawback, if you could call it one, is that the hotel is 3/4 of the way up a steep hill, so it is a bit of a trek to walk to it, especially in the hot summer sun (but it's great exercise!).
