“Excellent Value For The Price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

Hotel Polos was just what we were expecting . We stayed there June 13-16/2012 .
We had looked around at hotels on tripadvisor back in February of this year and we liked the reviews we read about this hotel . So there weren't any surprises . Yes beds were hard and the rooms small , but clean . The staff were all welcoming and friendly . They picked us up at the port and drove us back on the last day . The breakfast was modest but adequate . The pool was just the right temp to cool down when suntanning , plenty of loungers . Gardener was working meticouosly . Nice gardens . The location. Was a short walk to the beach , 3 mins . And close to the shops and restaurants .
Yes the decor is tired , but for the price , it worked for us .
The guy on nights was happy to make us large coffees (4e for two) and we would take them up to our room. The front desk girl's husband works for a car rental place and hooked us up with a rental for one day to tour the island and beaches .
Wifi was great in the room or by the pool . Tub/shower combo was a bit tight , but we made the best of it .
Thanks Mike (owner) for your great hospitality . Our next trip to the Greek islands , we will be sure to stop in for a few nights .

Room Tip: Pick a room on the second floor facing the pool . Other wise you are facing the street .

We stayed here for 4 nights 16-20 May 2012.We wanted a pool, so there is not much choice. We saw the owner with the hotel mini bus, so hitched a ride, as we had not prebooked.It is a big hotel, the staff are helpful, but the decor is very tired, and the bathroom is extremely small, and difficult to use.We had a good view over the pool, which we used, and it was very clean.However, the hotel lacked charm, we paid 50 euros for bed and breakfast and it was not really good value, compared to others on our trip. The hardest towels I have ever experienced, only 1 piece of soap for 4 nights, and a poor selection for breakfast. Other guests felt the same.

Room Tip: try somewhere else!

This place was fantastic. Beds were comfortable, and we had a small balcony overlooking the street with a side view of the sea and a large fridge in the room too. The bathroom was small and a bit dated but everything worked well and it wasn’t a problem for us. Breakfast was great, plus good value for money with plenty of breads cheese and perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs. Service was outstanding, the owners were genuine and friendly and happy to help. We were picked up and dropped off from the port for free although it is within walking distance. Alex was lovely, and gave us loads of great restaurant recommendations and ideas of things to do. The pool was huge and clean, cold but just what we needed on a hot day! We just wish we could have stayed longer. The location is fantastic a 10 minute pleasant walk along the quay from the centre of town and seconds away from a small beach and some wonderful restaurants. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Not luxury but friendly, clean and nice. All in the group liked this place. Close to the Sea and nice garden and very friendly staff. You made us to love Paros. Thanks

Hotel Polos was clean, with a very helpful and welcoming staff. Breakfast was included and it had variety and always well stocked. The rooms are a good size and not run down. The pool area is beautiful and the pool itself is large. You can't go wrong staying at Hotel Polos, everything is well maintained.

After being shafted by nearby Frangiscos Hotel, being forced to leave my drivers license and greeted by a huge cockroach in my room, the next morning I was thankful to find the Hotel Polos. It is very clean; the staff is helpful and caring; the rooms were very clean and cool. The pool is beautiful and HUGE. A nice respite from a day of walking around in the hot sun. Breakfast is optional, for 5 euros. It was around 40 euros a night in June.

Room Tip: My room was on the reception level and was nice and cool so if you're going in late summer, ask...
