“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

If you are looking for a place to stay, quiet, serene and picturesque, away from the over commercialised tourist resorts, then Evon's Rooms is the place for you. The rooms are extremely comfortable, spotless and clean. More importantly there is a laundry facility - a rare find amongst my travels in Greece. The beach and typically Greek Tavernas are only a stones throw away. Evon is an absolute treasure, friendly and eager to please, all of which made my stay a delight!

I spent a week at Evon's Rooms and I have to admit that I felt like a king. Evon's hospitality is amazing in so far as he always has a nice word and will bend backwards and forwards to help. The room was very cosy and spacious with all the amenities that you could wish for. The sea view from the balcony was beautiful too. I forgot to say that when I left Evon kindly gave me a jar of homemade jam as a souvenir. I will definitely go back and I wholeheartedly recommend Evon's Rooms.

What a friendly island Ikaria is and no more so than Evon and his lovely rooms. There was everything you could possibly hope for and so clean. Added to this the ambience of his lovely bar, and excellent food - nothing was too much trouble. As we came away we felt that we had left a friend and Evon even insisted that we took a pot of homemade jam (he called it marmalade) to remember our stay there. We used the rooms as our base and headed out everyday to explore the local beaches and then were really welcomed back in the evening with a wonderful meal and washed down by lovely drinks. Evon was an amazing host and even phoned us as we were on our way to the airport and emailed us to see that we had arrived home safely. Truly memorable. Thank you Evon

Room Tip: We were upstairs at the side, first floor - it was great, but as I am a little bit on the heavy side...

We stayed in Faros for a week, in Evon's rooms (in room 2).
As far as I know, its the best place you can find in the area. Almost at the beach (20 meters or so), so it is an ideal place if you like to swim. It's also close to the local taverns and cafe/bars, but you might not even visit them, as the rooms have their own cafe/restaurant.

The place has everything you might need: tv with paid satelite content, free wi-fi for your devices, internet room if you don't have a laptop, an entairtainment room with games (fuzzball, billiard table etc), a/c in rooms, full equiped kitchen etc

However, the best reason to visit this place is the owner (and the staff), as he is a really nice and helpful guy, who enjoys his work and always tries to make your stay very pleasant. He even gave us a ride to the airport with his personal car, to help us avoid payng a cab.

Well equipped and prepared for every occasion, your stay here will always be remembered.
There you are not treated as a costumer, but as a friend. Well tended , clean, new equipments, and peaceful environment.
And not to forget about the delicious food and great service.
I will always recommend this place to stay , The beautiful beach of Faros is only 20 footsteps away. Nothing else i can ask for,

We stayed one week in Faros and we had a very good stay at Evon's Rooms. The room was very well equipped (kitchenette, air conditioning, fan, tv, hairdryer, iron and iron board). I suggest to choose rooms on the first floor or higher (some rooms are on ground floor).
Near the hotel there are a few restaurant and a small mini market. Faros beach is just a few steps away. I suggest to hire a car to explore the island, nevertheless I found the best beaches in this area.
Evon is really very kind and suggested us some nice beaches to visit and a good restaurant.
Do not miss excellent breakfast (not included in the price) at their café as well as their delicious snacks (honey puffs in particular).

Room Tip: I suggest to choose a room on first floor or higher

Ikaria is a lovely little island and we decided to hop in a car and travel around. We stayed at a few spots around the Island and found this one through a recommendation from the owner of a Restaurant on the other side of the island.

Evonsrooms was well equipped, clean and the owner is a lovely guy who pointed us to all the sightseeing areas nearby. Faros itself is close to the airport and is quieter than the other side of the island, but it was a nice getaway for us. There is no swimming pool at the hotel, but the beach is very close so we were happy with this. The room was airconditioned and had a fully equipped kitchen too, but why cook when you can taste the local food!

The hotel also has its own bar/cafe and the owner cooks some yummy crepes! Also the greek alcohol "measuring" made us quite merry!

I'd highly recommend this hotel - it's great for the price and the owner will go out of his way to help you out with anything. When booking ask for a room on level one or higher with an ocean view. It's lovely to kick back on the balcony after a day's sightseeing. The owner said he was updating his website with pictures of the rooms and views so it may be worth checking that out if it's finished.

  • Liked — Price, friendliness
  • Disliked — No pool
