“Great location, but not much more”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2007

Hotel Asterias is a great location for arriving by ferry, it is just a short walk away. If you stay there, ask for the odd number rooms, those are the rooms that face the bay and the rooms have balconies with a table and chairs. The breakfast was pretty basic but if they had anything special of note, once it ran out, it was not replaced. The breakfast room overlooks the bay so you do have nice water views there also.

The hotel was just a short walk from the main part of town with the shops and restaurants. It was quiet when we were there, but it is on a main road to the other beACH resorts so could be busy with traffic noise during the summer.

The room was very basic, lino floor, small bath with shower and the doors all closed with a clang and a great deal of echoing at night. Bring earplugs.

One complaint was the bathroom shower had small bugs in it, I asked the staff to please spray it, but they never did. We were there for 3 nights and I just dealt with it. I think they came up from the shower drain.

They were not the most friendly or helpful, just very business like. Our ferry on the last day was cancelled due to high wind and we were going to have to get a night ferry out. The hotel was no where near full and we asked if we could have a late check out due to our unforseen circumstances and they told us we would have to pay for another day if we used the room past 12:00. That was a little annoying.

It was great to have the ocean view, but I might check around for another location if I returned.

Booked hotel from 15 till 19 September via internet with 24hours travel agency in Athens. A perfect location close to the center of Parikia on the seaside boulevard, looking out on the bay & port.

The location is great and the price was good. Our room had a terrace overlooking a pretty garden (which helped camouflage the main road) and the sea. The room itself was basic, the bath room a bit dated and worn and breakfast was simple. Cleanliness was average but the pool was a bit scummy. The staff was very nice. The center of Parikia is within walking distance, as are the ferries, and there are many tavernas near by. All in all, I would say the place is pretty average.

Great small pool, located across the street from the beach and down the street from the town center. Very clean rooms and very helpful owners. Breakfast could offer a little more.

We have just returned from a trip to four Greek Islands. The first one was Paros. We spent 5 days at the Asterias Hotel. The owners were wonderful, picked us up at the ferry and helped us with directions and suggestions of places to visit. We always got a cheerful hello as we left for the day and a warm, welcome back when we returned. It was a very friendly, family feeling. The room was nice, with a view of the sea and a lovely balcony. The breakfast room was charming. The location was perfect for walking to town or port. there was an internet cafe nearby and a place to rent a scooter. I would recommend this property very highly.

My Mother and I took the Island Hopping Sigma through Transat Holidays. We have no complaints regarding this agency. The representatives were all very nice, and all except one were very knowledgeable in their area (islands).
The hotel is situated on the main drag. About a 10-15 minute walk from the big shopping area and just across the street from the docks. Not a bad location – if you’re into the party scene and the beach is only a minute’s walk away.
I think I am very happy to have been there in May because I am confident that it would be wild and loud during the summer months. We did find it quiet at night while we were there.
Our receptionist in the hotel was the very nice and a talking parrot that spoke mostly in Greek greeted us. Cute.
Our view off the balcony was looking at the nice garden in the front of the hotel and we were able to see the water and main drag.
The beds were not at all comfortable, but again, we were extremely tired from all the walking and shopping. Which is the case in most hotels that I’ve read and heard about.
There was no one to take our bags here.
The size of our room was very tiny and it was not the cleanest. Someone killed a mosquito on the wall and the evidence was still there. Yuk.
The bathroom was very, and I mean very tiny. It did have enough towels.
Our Do Not Disturb sign was respected here.
My opinion of breakfast was not the best, however, my Mother enjoyed it.
I would only recommend this hotel if I were into the party scene. But I must admit, I did sleep through the night and felt rested the next day.
