“Cheap and simple, but no problems”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

We had no problems with this hotel at all. we got the holiday 6 weeks before we went away and chose it as it was the cheapest.
It was cheap, so you can't expect luxury, but after reading some reviews, myself and my friend were expecting the worst! it was a pleasant surprise when we arrived. The room was fine and there were clean sheets on the beds. The bathroom was clean but very basic. You have to hold the shower head, but we spoke to others, not in our hotel and they said they had the same thing. We had enough cutlery and pots to survive for a week, nothing to complain about. We had 2 large balconies to sit on and there were shutters we could put across to let air in but stop any flies.
The owner, Stella, was very nice and helpful. Anything you asked for she would try to get it or do it for you. I would recommend getting a safe at just €15 and air con is debatable at €40. we didn't bother with air con and we were fine, but it's personal preference.
The pool wasn't a problem to get to as it was literally 100m down the road. It was perfect location. main supermarket 5mins walk away, sea front 5mins, bar street just over 5 mins and the clubs were a maximum of 10mins walk. Really couldn't complain about location.
All in all, there wasn't much to complain about with the accomodation. if you expect simple then there will be no disappointment!

This was one of the best holidays i have ever been on! me and my group of girlfriends were very sad to be leaving the party island! it is amazingly friendly and the party never stops! Stergia has to apartment buildings we were in Stergia II which has the reception, bar and pool! the owners Stella was the only one who's name we knew! they were all lovely and couldnt do enough for us, We had read really bad reviews about it in trip advisor and i would just like to scrap them it was nothing like described! if u can there are loads of great deals out to Kos go for it! you won't regret it unless u want a very quiet holiday that is!

Went for girls holiday in July. Got cheap 18-30's deal. When we arrived we had read the reviews and were a little put off but thought what the heck! We stayed in Stergia 2 apartments which is facing the pool. Being mid of July it was extremely hot and in Stergia 2 there was no air conditioning but there was in Stergia 1 apartments (these were a 2 min walk along the road) after speaking to other guests air con cost an extra 40 euros for the week which believe me in mid July is worth it!
We struggled to sleep at night due to heat, we got a fan for 15 euros for the week but this made no difference so don't waster your money. The safety deposit costs 25 euros for the week and if you have late flight going home you can also keep your room till 8pm for 30euros.
The rooms didnt look clean but we bought cleaner etc and found no dirt but may be handy if you take cleaning wipes with you! as the rooms are only given a quick wipe between guests as our mirror was still dirty and when we closed door found some underwear on bathroom floor obviously from guests before.
The bed sheets are clean but any stains they cant get out are left...The towels in the bathroom are like cardboard - good for exfoliation girls so if you like a soft towel take one with you.
We left our room door open one night and got eaten alive my mosquitos so dont leave your room door open at night unless you want mosquito bites. Defo take plug with you and repellent.
The pool area is open from 9am till 7pm and if you stay in Stergia 2 you will hear the same 3 cd's being played constant - may be and idea for them to update CDs, although if nobody at pool no music is played ;) The pool area itself is kept clean and tidy, but is open to public so we did find other hotels using..
The apartments are run by family and I have to say are very welcoming and will do anything for you. Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner can all be bought in the pub/cafe at the pool and I have to say I didnt have anything I didnt like. They also put on a BBQ night for 10euros which was great value for money and do recommend you go even for cheap dinner.
All in all the apartments were typical greece very basic, hand held shower, but were clean. The family are helpful and the apartments are within 5min walking distance to main pubs/clubs/restaurants. Just dont book 18-30 tours as you can get them at less than half the price elsewhere!.

I went to Kardamena with 6 friends, aged 18-20 and stayed in 3 different rooms, we were all really worried after reading some terrible reviews about Stergia and was excpecting the place to be abit of a dirt hole!
But during our week stay, we had nothing to complain about!. The rooms were basic, but as are all cheap apartments in Kardamena, you get what you pay for after all!.
We stayed in the Stergia 1 apartments, and although they have no pool, the Stergia 2 had one and it was literally a 10 second walk down the road and didn't bother us.
The owners were always around if you needed anything (i.e. toilet roll, towels), they were very sweet friendly people!. If you ever needed anything they'd be up to your room in a matter of minutes to turn on air-con etc.
Our rooms had air- con which we all bought for 30 euros (i think) for the week which was definately worth it.
The showers, which you have to hold whilst showering was not a problem, it was powerful and so didn't matter. The bathroom is small but again all apartments in Kardamena are the same.
It had a small kitchenette, there wasn't alot of cutlery but we never cooked and ate out everynight so again that didn't bother us.
The check out time was 12, which is normal for all hotel and apartments, we paid 30 euros between us to keep one room on till 8pm as our flight wasn't till 2am, its definately worth keeping the room on for showering and more packing time etc.
Basically, we had nothing to complain about the apartments, we all enjoyed our stay, it was in a lovely location, close to the bars and restaraunts but not too close for it to be noisy.
The Club 18-30 reps however were unfriendly and we barely saw them in the week we were there as we refused to buy anything off them, the excursions which they charge 250 euros for are a complete rip off, it's cheaper to do your own things. The bar crawls may be fun but they put the drink prices up and take away the offers in each bar you go too so you end up spending more!.
If you're after cheap accomodation, would definately reccomend Stergia.
Its my third time going to Kos, and having stayed in probably about 5 apartments during that time with rougly the same prices, Stergia was no different to them, and better than some!.

Me and my friend wen't to stergia in sept 2009... and i must say even though it was a cheap holiday...it was absolutely terrible.. we got of the bus and had to drag our suitcases down this dark hardley lit road, and then we was put in this deralict building..... it was awful... we had paid for self catering and we had 1 spoon 2 forks, a bowl a manky old frying pan and a cup... oh and a couple of pint glasses people had stolen...... u had to turn ur own lights on going up the hall way... as the holiday went on.... we found out that all keys for stergia 1 and 2 are the same for every door in both hotels!! (BEWARE OF THIS AS WE HAD PROPERTY STOLEN) Our key from stergia 1 opened our friends door in stergia 2..... when we asked to move we were told by the owner we were staying in her HOUSE!! shocker!! we had to drag the table in front of the door every night just to feel safer..... the balcony doors and windows didn't lock and our window went into the cleaners cupboard.....the bedding was filthy with yellow stains all over the sheets matress and pillow....the toilet was infested with what looked like fleas and they coverd the walls too...the first day we got there we had to go and buy bleach! there were a number of attcks on young girls, and many complaints about things being stolen..... kos as a whole was a lovely place and we made our own holiday...but seriously do not go to this hotel!!!!!

Me& myBoyfriend both 18 went to Stergia,(Kardamena) with Club18-30 on the 28th Sept.09 x. We Stayed At Stergia1 which is basicly abondoned!! Stergia2 is a short distance away With a pool& Bar x

We Were Expectin Stergia1 & 2 to be right next to each other?
Butt theyy werentt!! They are basicly a two minute walk though (i have uploded a picture so you can see!)

STERGIA1 : we were on the top floor and it was a nightmare at night! Because you have to turn the lights on when you enter the hotel & by the time you enter your room the lights go off!! Stergia1 dosent have a Reception or anything? so its bascily just like flats rather than a hotel!

The Rooms are Basic thee toilet is a state? Butt you do get used to itttt!
there is no shower curtain nd barley a shower lol x
i have took pictures of the toilet as well to show youu ahaa x

YOU DO GET USED TO THE ROOM AND HOTEL THOUGHT!!!!
first impressions will no douttt put you off!!!!

We Didnt Really visit Stergia2 because you are prob quicker just going to the beach than walking away over to the pool!!
Although when we did the familyy was really nicee, & the FULL ENGLISH breakfast is brilliantt! the drinks areee cheap as welll!!

Whatever you do, Dont go with CLUB18-30 because it was the end of the summer we thought we would be better buyin the Club18-30 events! but the driinkss are alotttt more expensive when you are withh them? so your basicly better of yourselfss xx

Walking down BarStreet is a nightmaree! you Get forced into EVERY club by the P.Rs whichh is really anoyyinggggg!!

Kardamenaaaa is a great placee to goooo! *& even though it wasnt that busy in september we still had a great time! the Weather is Gorgeous as well! altough it was raining our first day there! But onlyy for a while Lol xx

I Wouldd go Backk to Stergiaa As a said youu do get used to it as much as your problay put off, it does grows on youu xx But you do get what you payd forr!!
