We have travelled to Paros many times and this is our favorite hotel by far. We found it by accident the first year (2008) and have been back both in 2009 and 2010.
The hotel and apartments are ideally situated by one of the town's beaches and it is only a 10 minute walk to the harbour and town centre. There is a small supermarket next door in the camp site and a big supermarket on the way to town. The beach is not the nicest in Paros but being so close means it VERY handy when you want to go backwards and forwards during the day (as you do with small kids). We could lie on the beach before it go to hot and then leave our stuff and return to the air conditioned rooms.
The views are fantastic from nearly all the rooms. We love watching the boats coming and going in the harbour. There are a few rooms without the view which I would avoid. The studios are good but the hotel rooms are just as handy. The studios are often booked well in advance by people returning year after year. For us we use the sink/cooker so little it was hardly worth the extra cost. A small travel kettle is all we need.
The rooms are spotlessly cleaned each day. The staff are friendly while at the same time giving you space. They will pick you up and drop you off for you boat at no extra charge (new bus this year). The area is quiet at night even with a campsite next door (it goes back well behind Irene).
We would highly recommend Hotel Irene.
