I stayed for two weeks in a Chios Panorama Studio. I think the nicest thing about this studio is the view, without a doubt, which includes the mountains, beach and view over to Turkey. Also I found the owner very helpful and obliging, and if he couldn't supply something I asked for he had an alternative. He also offered a lift up to the apartment one day, which was very kind of him. This could be the only drawback to renting out the studio as it is a little bit out of the way and up a mountain, but having said that I used a taxi service back up most nights. Going down the mountain of course wasn't too bad. However, if you have a car or are young and fit, you might not mind the trek up to the apartments, but I am not young and found it too much with the heat in August so with the help of a taxi/owner all was well.

My apartment was very basic, but had everything I needed. There was a fridge and a two hob cooker in the studio. Sheets and towels were changed every 3 - 4 days, but I do feel if you were not satisfied with something then the owner would do everything in his power to help you. The apartment was a very good price.

Room Tip: Do go for a sea view room, the view is wonderful!

We have never written on Tripadvisor even if we visited 15 greek islands and we spent many days in greek hotels and rooms reading all comments before making our choice but this time we would like to express our satisfaction in writing few words about Chios Panorama rooms as we had very wonderful moments there.

At first we were intended to spend there only 6 nights and then to move somewhere else in the island but after a tour that we made the first days around the island we were so happy about Chios Panorama that we decided to spend there other days so we remained 15 days: it was the best; for price, position and hospitality.

There one can find everything he needs to have a good vacation: beneath there is Karfas with its beach, restaurant and cafeterias (only few minutes on foot) but once arrived in the room (large, comfortable and clean) after a long sunny day what pleasure to enjoy the silence, the windy air and the wonderful exiting panorama from the large balcony, we think the best in all Karfas as it is from the top of the hill…fantastic.

Personally we appreciated also the design of the rooms in traditional greek style.

Last but not least, one of the things that make Chios Panorama so special is the owner, Konstantinos, not a owner but a friend : nice and always available for anything you may need he does his best to make the place more and more beautiful and agreeable. But he is young and he is a man so he can be forgiven if sometimes he forgets a spoon in cleaning days!! :-)

So , thanks to Konstantinos and his Chios Panorama we have decided that we'll come back to Chios again one day!! A&AM

I stayed here a couple of nights in July.
If you want to be in Karfas, know that it is not the best beach on the island, but seems to be the most popular one (kids, dogs, waste but also larger choice of restaurants, bars...).

I would rather recommend to get to Komi instead if you want to have a beautiful sand beach and see other people too.

The B&B Panorama is situated up the hill, so choose it only if you'll have a car or motorbike.
The owner of the place is a nice guy and things are easy.

Wifi works well in the room, the bed is alright and the view from the balcony over Karfas is fantastic!

Otherwise the room and its small bathroom are outdated, windows not well cleaned, overall could need a little more attention to details.
Air-conditioning works but not very efficiently.
The little kitchen has what you need to boil water for coffee and some cups, plates etc.
Visit a mini-market to buy yourself a breakfast before going up there, there will be no places nearby to have a coffee.

In my opinion, it's worth 50 €/ night for a room with a double bed.

Remember to ask for a room with a view over the village!

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and have relaxing time on the island (End of August). The room was basic but good with a very beautiful panoramic view of the area (as you can see on the picture) except the electric factory. I want to say that the name of the hotel writen on the front door is Panorama hotel (maybe the place have change his name). This hotel is build on the top of a little hill. The beach of Karfas is not the best beach of the island but not bad, so its better to rent a car/motorbike/bike. The owner (Konstantinos) of this place is a very nice and friendly guy who wants to help you every time you need it. I have never met an owner like him and today I want to say again : thank you for your help... The only negative thing was about the noise of the wind on the door of our room during the night but Konstantinos said to that its because they have a special wind in August on the island...

We stayed for a 10 days, Kostas the owner is a very nice guy, he is always available for any help. The best feature in the rooms is the panoramic view, you couldn't ask for anything better. You'll see the best sunshines you've ssen for a long time. (just keep in mind to make a reservation for a sea view). Karfas is a place a bit crowdy and loud, but you won't be disturbed at all during your stay, it's all beneath you! You should have a way to move around, a rent car or something, and have in mind there is no breakfast or cafeteria in a 300m distance, so take a visit to the market and get all you need for the morning.
