My stay in Ikaros Hotel was quite pleasant. Friendly staff, good food (excellent burgers) and fun during the evening time at the bar with nice cocktails.

We stayed at this hotel as we were first attracted to its price which was really affordable so when we arrived there we werent expecting much, but we were positively surprised. I guess it is all in your mind as some people wish to pay little and get five stars hotel. No, on the contrary we had excellent time there. People working at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. Room was nice size and fairly clean.
Bar has excellent cocktails and i had there my best hamburger ever. Swimming pool is good size and clean and after your day enjoying on the sun it is very close to go to the center if you like active night life. There are many ways to go around island and see magic of zante.
I will definitely come back!

We decided to go to Zante in July 2011. Ikaros was the best of the bad bunch available hotels wise. But it was cheap, which of course is a massive bonus. It's full of 18-22 year olds, so it's good if you want a young crowd. The rooms were very very basic. As a group of lads we were shoved down in the basement, which was fine. The shower ranged from being freezing, to scoulding. There was no middle ground. The cleaner was nice enough. Although when I say clean, they will change your sheets every other day and that's about it. The staff themselves were a mixed much. I found the daytime receptionists very nice, but the night time guy is an absolute idiot. He's rude and very igrorant. He won't acknowedge you until he's finished off playing online poker or whatever facebook game tickles his fancy. I wouldn't get on his bad side either. The guy has a baseball bat, which he's not afraid to show you.

The bar staff are nice. If you're a girl you'll be fine, but one of the male bar staff loves himself too much. If you're a guy, probably be prepared to work 10 minutes for you drink whilst he chats up the ladies. The food's really good aswell.

The hotel itself is in a nice location - its a good 10/15 minute walk to the strip, but there are some good little bars near it, and make sure you visit the Island resturaunt. It's the best place we went to. Was the only place we went to when they said 'unlimited drinks' they actually meant it.

So all-in-all stay here if you want a cheap group holiday and are not so bothered about living conditions for a week. It's fine for that, but anything else then try and get to another hotel. There's better ones if Laganas.

We stayed at the Ikaros for 1 week in September. On the Teletext website it read 3 star hotel, 600m away from th beach and 800m of the strip. It was actually very close to teh strip and noisy night clubs and 1.5 miles away from thd beach. The bar only had large beers and no water, let alone a reasonable wine. The place turned out to be a filthy 2 star hotel. We had to change rooms 3 times in order to get a reaasonable clean room. It still was not to 3 star standards ( nor 3 star either) The manager was compleetly useless and could not be bothered with any more compllaints, since she had too many complaints about that hotel.
When flashing the loo, you thought an earthquake was happening. The noise was incredibel and the whole room vibrated. There was never warm water in the morning, ony for 1 hr in the evening. The smell in the bathroom was unbearable but it was the same in all rooms.
It was a 7 day nightmare that hotel. However the tod in the hole, the lovely restaurant near the shops on the way to the beach made up for the bad selection of drinks and food at teh Ikaros.
If you want to spoil your holiday in Laganas, by all means stay at the Ikaros. If you want to stay in a noce place stay elsewhere.......

Room Tip: go to the Zante Palace. Very nice.

Arrived at 5am and had to wait 40 minutes to check-in due to the guy behind playing online poker!! Our room didnt lock which wasnt a major problem but when your leaving valuables in your room its not great, 50 euros also went missing from the room. A friends room on the ground floor flooded with sewage water as the drains blocked and the hotel refused to change their room. The cleaners were barely in too which didnt help. Hotel was very basic but not too bad considering how cheap it was! Would only stay here if your 18-21 and looking for a cheap basic party place!
