“Good price for value, with excellent view on the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2010

We booked the hotel on the island to extend the stay for a few days. In comparison to our previous hotel this one was cheaper, but was much more what you get. A spaceous room with, very clean, shower, 20 meters from sea, view on the sea and sunset from the balcony. The studio also has a little kitchenette with 2 plates and possibility for breakfast in the room. Walk to the harbor and center is done in 10 minutes, with on your way a nice diversity on restaurants and cafes. At home we found out that we forgot a dress. The hotel was very helpful in returning it to us by post.

Having visited Paros in the past we always liked the look of the Irene. We were not disappointed. Light airy rooms, very well equipped. Friendly staff, beautiful view of the bay especially at sunset. Pleasant walk to the port. Will definitely return.

We stayed in one of the studios at the Irene for 7 nights in September. We paid 43 euros and had Room 40.

The rooms are immaculately clean and spacious with small kitchenette facilities (2 rings), fridge and small freezer section & sink. The bathrooms were the best we have had in Greece at this price level and looked to have been refurbished recently. The room was suitable for a couple and one child as we had one double bed and a single.

The balcony was a good size and included an table and chairs with umbrella, the view was amazing and had good views of the sunset each night.

The beach is right opposite the hotel, although if you want a sunbed you have to walk a few minutes further along.

There are restaurants and bars seconds away from the hotel, including 3 very nice beach bars with tables underneath shaded trees right opposite.

The staff and owners of the hotel were extremely helpful and welcoming.

We cannot wait to return to Paros next year and would only consider a stay at the Irene! We've visited a fair few Greek islands and this hotel is better than most!

The only negative comment I would add is that email correspondence can be a little slow.

We traveled the greek islands with 4 teenagers and we all loved Hotel Irene. It is simple but clean, quiet and still close to many very nice breakfast and dinner places, it offers a very nice view on the sea from some of the rooms, it has several studios offering a small kitchenette and a large terrace. If what you expect is a place to spend your days, it will not fit your expectations but if what you are looking for is a comfortable, clean, quiet place to sleep and allow you to visit the island of Paros, you got it. The hotel is close to the ferry dock (they come pick you up and drop you off with your luggages), close to the bus station going everywher on the island and close to many car/scooter renting places. There are nice beaches in walking distance for few hours of sun bathing and swimming, and the service is very firendly and available to help. The part we did not like much is the breakfast, nothing special about it and pricy. They could improve this point.

We were pleased that we paid no attention to the other review on this site and went instead on the reccommendation of friends. We had a large downstairs room with en suite and doors leading out to a terrace. We enjoyed 10 beautiful days staying at Hotel Irene. The room was kept beautifully clean and the staff could not do enough for us. We wished we didn't have to leave.
The large terrace at the front of the hotel where you can enjoy breakfast or a drink looks directly across the road to the beautiful blue sea. Plenty of restaurants and shops close by.

We were not staying at the hotel. The whole island was full because there was a church holiday. So we stayed at the camping next to Hotel Irene. We were not prepared to stay on a camping so we had absolutely no equipment. We went to the hotel to ask for one night to borrow us a towel, that we have something to lie on. I sad Irene that we are willing to pay something for the service.

Irene's reaction was the most unfriendly I faced in my travelling. I never saw such an arrogant face saying NO!

Don’t go there – the only thing she is interested in is your money.
