Paolas Town Apartments & Studios
Reviewed November 28, 2011

Because we knew that Mykonos can be quite pricey we wanted to find a good self catering spot, that was also well-located to get around. This place was great. We had a huge air-conditioned room, a few steps from the pool, with a lovely veranda where we ate dinner each evening. The apartments are up quite a steep hill, but buses do regularly go and there's a fantastic shop / fresh fruit and veg place just up the road. It's also in a good spot if you're looking to go to Paradise beach as well as centre of town / harbour. Its so close that the taxis are cheap, if you don't fancy the uphill walk after an evening out. Would totally recommend it.

This hôtel is sooooo cute :-) Paola, the owner and her family were Just So kind !!! We had a perfect room and So clean! The cleaning girls were there every day! The hôtel is near the center, you can easy walk but we prefered to rent a scooter for 10 days (140 euros) sometines the street is a bit noisy but i swear its not that much and you really dont care when you are on vacation!!! I Will really keep a great souvenir of these hollidays and persons i have met with my boyfriend at paolas Town !! NeXT year we ll be back for sure!! A big hug to all your sweet family Paola! See you NeXT year!

Stayed here twice now and really enjoy the friendly welcome and varied mix of people who stay here. both time we stayed here it had a good mix of young and old, gay and straight , english and other nationalities.
The location was perfect for us we wanted to be just outside the town but within walking distance. The studios are at the top of quite a steep hill but provide great views.
The rooms were basic but clean and provided everything we needed.
We are staying here again in July and really looking forward to it.
The only down side is that no uk travel agents currently have this place on their books so we have had to contact paolas directly through their website to book, although they have been very helpful and the booking was easy.
Overall an excellent , friendly , basic accomodation at an affordable price

I couldn't believe reading some reviews trashing this lovely place.
We got off the boat on Mykons harbor and soon enough were aproached by Paola herself. She is a lovely lady with a very strong accent that showed us the stunning brochure of the hotel and gave us a price of only 40 euros per night, for a room with a private balcony! Well, mind you this was in october, when the prices go down by half or more than half. We decided to go check it out and it really payed off! The room was very clean, totally quiet and very comfy. Great beds, good shower... From the hotel we drove our bike all over the island and it's very conveniently located since it's close to downtown (where you wanna go at night) and next to a main intersection that takes you anywhere else on the island. The breakfast was pretty good, not more that that, but, over all, it was a great option.
I would (will!) definetly go back. Only thing, next time, I'm spending more time on the Island. PARADISE!!! I'm attaching a picture of our cheese and wine on our private terrace. Cheers.
Celso

Review written retrospectively as only recently become a Trip Advisor member.
We stayed 2 years ago, and i hope for customers due to holiday there in the future, nothings changed.
Paolas studios stand in an elevated position with stunning views down over Mykonos town. We were given the apartment on the first floor overlooking the pool with an enormous terrace. The apartment itself was typically Greek basic, but scrupulously clean, comfortable beds, and again, fantastic views from the terrace doors and windows. Location-wise, its not perfect, there are no supermarkets or shops nearby other than a Starbucks across the road, and its a good 20 minute walk downhill into Mykonos town-so you can imagine the slog back up in July heat, however, its location means its very,very quiet at night, and when we did need to sleep at odd hours due to body clock malfunction from too much Mykonos clubbing til 8 in the morning, we had no problem.
The pool area is beautiful, comfortable loungers, and Paola herself would often pop out to offer chilled melon. When we were there, there were no other facilities ie internet access as far as i know, but we certainly didnt need any.
For a very comfortable, clean, peaceful friendly place to say, i give it 9/10, its just the hill which is a slight burden-but then if you were lower, you wouldnt get the views.
Mykonos is fabulous, exactly like the photos depict, although in July it was heaving and a lot of rubbish blowing around in the streets. Loved the clubs-especially Pierros and the harbour club after 4 am.
One downside, it was VERY expensive when we were there, and i hear now its exorbitant.

I'm visiting Mykonos every single summer since 1994. I've been there even for celebrating Easter, either with my friends or my family. These rooms in overall are TERRIBLE!! We had booked 3 double rooms, which were extremely dirty and uncomfotable. The fridge wasn't working properly, the aircondition was in front of our bed, (so that you were unable to use it while taking a nap or sleeping), the wc was dirty, the shower was inconvinient, the hotel staff was not friendly at all, and the hotel's location was really bad.. The only good thing was the view, that most hotels in Mykonos can equally offer, without having you ruin your holiday... We tried to move to another hotel but all rooms were booked. It's amazing how a single hotel can destroy your holiday in such a beautiful island such as Mykonos. Don't do it to yourself.

Me and my wife stayed at the Paolas the first two weeks in July 2008, It was our first time in Mykonos having sampled many Greek Islands over the years. We were looking forward to the experience of what was described as a cosmopolitan heaven.
What we actually found was an overpriced and sometimes seedy part of Greece best left to the young and gay. We have absolutely nothing against the the gay fraternity but the resort didn`t cater for heterosexual 40 somethings.
Our main gripe was the prices of everything in Mykonos Town which is three times more expensive than any other Greek Island we have visited. Mykonos Town is OK but the port leaves a lot to be desired and the shops and restaurants were a complete rip off.
The Appartment itself was situated on a main busy road leading directly to the port so every type of traffic was thundering past all day every day. It was very very noisy and very difficult to cross the road day or night.

The owners of the appartments couldnt be more helpful, they were lovely people and kept a lovely building pretty and clean.
However, the appartments are for the young who want to go out at midnight and come back at six in the morning. They are not for the middle aged. We witnessed at least three couples and groups of mates falling out and screaming at each other into the early hours in the morning. Not what we call a relaxing cosmopolitan heaven.
