“Peaceful and picturesque”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

My travelling partner and I stayed at 9 Muses during the last leg of our trip to Greece in July. My only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend there as it was such a wonderful place to rest and relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside. With only a 12-15 minute walk to the center of town for restaurants and shopping, it was a perfect place to stay if you are looking for privacy and something completely different and out of the ordinary from your standard hotel stay. Our hosts were gracious and incredibly helpful in all respects, from offering to pick us up and return us to the ferry, to offering very useful travel advise when touring the area. Our suite was spacious, very clean, warm and inviting. The traditional hotel was designed and decorated by our hosts and was beautifully appointed with everything one would need to enjoy a carefree stay. The view from our balconies (we had 3!!) gave us a 360 degree view of the mountains, the sea and the town of Parikia. A small grocery and bakery were conveniently located within a 10 minute walk to the hotel and the kitchen fully equipped if you chose to stay in and eat rather than visit the fine selection of restaurants along the water-front close-by. My travelling partner and I, upon arrival, chose to stay at the hotel during the first day and enjoy the amenities as well as the surrounding landscape and only ventured out to the town in the evening because 9 Muses felt more like a resort than a hotel. Even when we returned home late than evening, we stayed on on the balcony, laying in comfortable lounge chairs, while drinking Greek beer and watching the expansive show of stars above us. How can anything measure up to this sort of experience!! Grace and sophistication are the best words to describe both the hotel and our hosts. I hope to stay there again but for a much longer time.

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at 9 Muses last September. The room was furnished nicely, clean, and comfortable. The location was quiet with about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the central waterfront area. There is a convenient small grocery store nearby and don't miss out the bakery on the same street as the grocery store (to the left about a 100 meters as you exit the store). The owners are gracious and will help out on any touring questions.

very peaceful location, with very gracious hosts. location was not ideal for beachgoing by foot, though the smaller parikia beaches were definitely doable, but very well situated for traveling anywhere else on the island. also, the inn was very well-designed and comfortable - definitely a step above the pensions available elsewhere in greece.

I stayed here with 3 others and can not recommend this place highly enough.
We arrived and were greeted at the port by the owner, who drove us back to the property.
Our room was spacious, clean and traditionally decorated and had a large balcony with an beautiful view.
The owners were always around to help out with any queries we might have had and suggestions in possible places to go and see.
The property is only a short walk (around 5 mins) from the town and was an easy and flat walk.
I encourage anyone wanting to stay here to go, as it was truly a lovely place to stay.

9 muses was very quality place. It was very clean, comfortable, very smart, well organized, quite and peacefull. Also Christos and Maria are wonderful hosts, lovely and friendly people. They were always helpful with advice on where to visit on the island and the best place to eat. They also have taken me to some places. They made my holiday perfect.
The location is perfect, close to a beach (8 min by walk) and close to the town.
Emanuella also was very helpful for reservation and information about island.
Next time i visit Paros i will definetely stay at 9Muses.

Room Tip: All rooms are perfect.

Paros was our first stop on our 16 day trip on the Greek Islands.

We picked 9 Muses after reading the reviews on here and we weren't disappointed.

The hosts couldn't have been more helpful. We were greeted at the Port, driven up to the accommodation then invited for coffee and a chat in their home just a few doors down from ours.

A map was produced and we were told all the best places to go and things to do.

The room was the biggest of all our accommodation, was spotlessly clean, was only a short 10min leisurely walk down to the main strip.

All in all I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the 9 Muses to anyone. Terrific all round.

Ευχαριστώ & grazie to out wonderful hosts
