We visited Paros for 4 days in August 2014, a group of 7 people (3 women, 4 men). We rented two rooms in "John's Rooms & Studios" due to the excellent prices and matching reviews, as seen on TripAdvisor. And boy, were we in for a treat!
A few days before our arrival, I was contacted by the manager for details on our ferry boat, so he could arrange to pick us up. Regardless the very small walk that would be required, meeting him there after the boat trip, and having our luggage carried to our rooms was the very best way to begin our staying!
The location was really close to the port and center of the town. A couple of minutes walk close!! And yet, it was situated in such a place that the traffic noise did not reach it, at all!
The rooms were really neat and clean, colorful and cosy, with perfectly working air conditioning, fridge, and water heater, shutters on the double-glassed windows, a dresser and cutlery. We felt safe and at home right away! Clean towels were provided for each and every one of us, one for the body and a smaller for the face!
Both Mr John and his wife Ms Georgia, were really kind and welcoming, looking after our every need, giving us guide for taverns, restaurants, bars, do's and don't's. We felt as if we were staying at our uncle and aunt's instead of a hotel or apartments!!
The WiFi was not properly working in all rooms (we had to stand over the sink for the best reception) but that made it easier to put the phones away and socialize with each other!
If you ever visit Paros, this should be your only choice! And do take the walk up to the Monastery (you can't miss it during the night, it lights up in the mountainside). The view is amazing!! :)
