Our fourth visit to Plakias and this time we stopped at the Dora studios. We were lucky and were allocated room no 1, on the top floor, we had a super view over plakias bay, nice roomy studio nice big balcony. The only drawback was the bed, not the most comfortable, but hey, it's only two weeks. The standard of... More

Shared a room with 2 others which became uncomfortable at times due to the hot weather, not Dora's fault of course, more a question of how you time your air con as you can end up waking up to a sub zero room! Shower and sink worked fine along with fridge, didn't use cooking facilities. View from balcony was very... More

Stayed here in Ocober. The studio was basic but clean and with some nice little extras. The loction is quiet and there is easy access to the beach and tavernas. The small balcony had a nice view of both the sea and the olive clad hills. Dora was most helpful. I have travelled extensively but Dora is the only person... More

Spent a week at Doras studios room number 8, I would not recommend any one to stay in this room, I cant comment on other rooms but this one is dark, dirty and very run down. We are well aware of what to expect from a basic Greek studio as we have been to Greece many times over the last... More

Returned yesterday from Plakias and Dora Studio's (13th August) We like the review on the 9th August had booked this last minute as a cheap get away with Olympic Holidays, we wanted a small greek town/village for a quiet relaxing holiday. It says a lot about the area and accommodation that our worst part of our holiday was the transfers... More

We have just returned from Plakias and stayed at Dora's for a week. We went on a last minute booking with Olympic and would go back to Dora's any time! I can't find anyone who has one unkind word for Dora! We booked this holiday last minute we were under the illusion that Dora's was air-conditioned (would definitely not booked... More

Just returned from two weeks at these apartments. Just cannot see why people have moaned about them. The lady herself Dora is a lovely person who has added a few personal homely touches to the rooms, which she didn't have to, but people seem to forget. They are, as a lot of people have explained, clean, comfortable (for Greece) quiet,... More

Dora studios are clean, well-equipped and very well located (close to shops & tavernas, but quiet). Rooms 1 to 4 are bigger than those below, and have better views (especially 1 & 2). Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. I wonder if some of the less favourable reviews come from people who aren't familiar with how things are in Greece;... More

If you want a beautifully maintained studio apartment, then these may not be the best rooms to choose. The location is up a back street, perfect for the local shops, and close to the beach side tavernas. There are some good rooms if you are lucky, the first floor (steep steps), and three good rooms on the ground floor, but... More
