“Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

I had a reasonably poor experience at Ampeli Studios.
On arrival, there was no water in any of the rooms - not just hot water, but any water! Once the water began functioning a few hours later, drainage in the shower was so poor that a small flood remained for a good ten minutes after each shower.
The room and bathroom were unfortunately littered with small moths - an unpleasant surprise whist reading under a light in bed each night!
The reception desk in Ampeli (2nd building) was seldom attended.
Otherwise, the room was adequate enough, but these faults were hard to look past. I wouldn't recommend staying here.

Stayed July 2013, traveled solo

Where to begin with this place?! Myself and 5 of my friends, booked a SIX bed room apartment, and when we arrived, we were dumped at a building and given 2 rooms. There was no wifi, no kitchen area, and no one ever at reception, which was promised. We felt isolated and deserted!

We were all greatly disappointed with the way the manager dealt with our concerns and issues too. My friend rang on the first day, expressing our issues and even though we were just asking for what we had booked, we were ignored.

The only person we managed to speak to was the CLEANER! who had no sympathy and made us feel guilty.

There are two Ampeli studios, but they basically placed us in this empty building, because they assumed we wouldn't make an issue or speak up. But we had friends at the other studio, so we knew that we had just been ripped off.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!!! Ruined our visit to Paros!!

We chose this accommodation because of its rates.
After our stay my opinion is that price was good, but its studios are very basic, not so cosy than photos on the website and the small kitchen area was not well equipped.
This apartments house is in a small, quiet street around 10-15 minutes walking distance from the port. The apartment house is basic and unfortunately it doesn't have nice garden with flowers.
The owners was very helpful and port pick-up was great.
There are computers with free internet in the common area.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2010

The owner was very responsive by email. His repsonses were rapid, he offered to pick us up from the port and was waiting when we arrived. The meltemi winds had been very choppy and it was a fast boat so I was sea sick and he ensured I was ok and even offered to get me some water. When we arrived at the apartments we realised we had left a bag on the boat and he telephoned the port and took my partner straight back for the back that was waiting in the office for us. Which was outstanding.
The apartments are up a side road off the main stretch of beach with bars and tavernas very close by. There is no view at the apartments. The rooms are large and clean but could do with some modernisation but has all you need under one roof. A fridge, air con (no extra charge) Cooking hob and utensils and a small balcony with chirs. The beds were comfortable, although we only stayed one night, and the bathroom was clean and shower was good.

The location was in a quiet area just 5 min walk to the beach and restaurants and 15 min walk to the center of town where all the little street walk starts.
The room was fantastic, romantic, greek style and we really liked it. The owner and his wife was very friendly and helpfull.
It had A/c, tv, small cooker and fridge.
Thanks
