Niki's Pension
Ranked #26 of 53 Parikia B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 November 2013

The only way my hubby and I were able to pull ourselves away from our recent fabulous week at Niki's was because we are making plans to return in the summer. A physical setting is just that - a place to be - and Niki's has a wonderful physical setting, on a magnificent Greek Island, close to everything one might want to see. The real heart of the experience is Bruce, the Innkeeper. Bruce turned the experience from wonderful to extraordinary. We can't wait to return to Niki's to see Bruce and Paros again.

I have just had a glorious few days staying in Niki 'Pension in Paros. It is very central for bars and resturants around the area and is very short walk to the beach but so quiet.. Bruce is very accommodating and catered to all my needs. There were little personal touches evident as well, a welcoming bottle of wine chilled in the fridge, hairdryer. All in all a great first expereince of Paros, would go back there any time and cannot recommend it highly enough. A true gem!

I have only recently returned from a far too short stint in Paros, namely Niki's Pension. Niki's is situated at the heart of the Parakia. Walking outside the hotel and strolling 5 minutes in any direction will land you at all the hot spots around Parakia. Whether you are a beach goer, prefer some late lunch at any of the hundreds of restaurants located at the water front or if you'd prefer to take a stroll through the markets, visit some backstreet bars or night clubs. Niki's is located in the middle of the action. The accommodation provided at Niki's is perfect; rooms with air conditioning, bathrooms, TV's and even a terrace for a late afternoon gin with the perfect host Bruce, it's enough to make anyone fall in love with Paros. Not to mention the option of a late breakfast cooked by none other then Bruce himself (take the breakfast). There is a fantastic atmosphere at Niki's, whether its the music constantly floating in the background or Bruce's catatonic gin's, Niki's pension is an absolute must for any traveler looking for total piece of mind and love affair with Paros.

This year was my second visit to Niki's Pension. I had a mate travelling with me and like last year, we had an absolute blast at Niki's. As young men we were looking for beaches, places for a cheap feed and good bars, all of which can be found in close proximity to the hotel. Bruce is a great host boasting decades of island knowledge and experience, and had no problems directing us wherever or to whatever we were looking for. He is a magnificent conversationist for any ages and just good company for an early drink on the terrace. Paros was our home base whilst we were in Greece and I wouldn't stay anywhere else on the island.

Room Tip: There are a couple of different rooms, just inquire, but they are all fitted with A/C tv etc. Great...

This beautiful little B&B on the edge of Paroikia Old Town offers far more than I expected from a pension. The location is superb, quiet but central enough to be within easy walking distance of beaches, port, restaurants, shops and nightlife. Rooms are pristine white, beautifully clean and stylish with all sorts of thoughtfully provided extras - mosquito repellents, hairdryer, TV, fridge (with wine!), air conditioning, 2 pillows - not your usual pension standard. The communal terrace is lovely, so even if your room doesn't have a balcony there is somewhere quiet and shady to sit outside. Bruce is an excellent host and made us feel so welcome, from delicious morning coffee and cooked breakfast to evening conversation when we found him "at home" in Niki's or at the nearest bar! Thoroughly and wholeheartedly recommended - I'll be back (I hope).

As always, Bruce made my friend and I feel at home, wine in our fridge, excellent coffee, home-cooked breakfast, lots of laughter . . . all just 3 minutes from the beach, seafront bars and cafes . . . . and someone else to make things tidy and provide clean crisp sheets and towels. The only hard part is leaving!

Me and my hubby had a magnificent and memorable stay at Niki's Pension in June. Bruce, the manager, does everything to make you feel at home and welcome. In the morning, you get copious amounts of good (italian) coffee and - if you feel like it - even a full english breakfast. Our room - simple but functional and stylishly furnished - had everything one could wish for - fridge, mosquito repellants, wi-fi, hairdryer etc. The terrace was an excellent place to chill in the shade, read a book and look over the roofs of Parikia. The Pension is about 10 mins on foot from Parikia harbour and very close to all the bars (Selini!) and restaurants at the waterfront. You can rent a car or motorbike just around the corner and explore the Island on your own (even better with the help of tips from Bruce, the manager).
