We went to Paros for a few days without a hotel reservation. There was a lot of options to choose from the tourist booth in the port and a tourist agent recommend us this place. It was the worst stay I ever had. It was so bad that I went back to the tourist agent and I scream at him there.
The worst of all was the crazy owner. This greek rude owner was the worst person I ever met. He was not kind, he would not help you with anything and he would make a fuzz about everything possible. First, he show us the rooms available, and he insist us to take one of the rooms in the basement with a little window. I say no, and he was not willing to give us a room in the ground floor or the first floor. At the end, he gave us the room and I didn't leave (when I should have) simply because it was late and my wife was dead tired.
The location was 10 minutes away from the little town in a not that nice area but it was very quiet. We wanted peace and to relax and thats why we avoid booking a hotel in the town. The breakfast was simply awful. Nothing fresh and nothing nice to eat. It really show how cheap the owner was.
When I decided It was too much and wanted to leave, much earlier than expected, the owner make a big drama about it. He was complaining about us and telling us how rude we were with him in "his island". I was so disappointed and angry with him that I did an official complain while i was on port about him and the tourist agent. Of course, it was Greece, so probably nothing happen. Just be smart, and avoid it...
