Nice basic, central hotel

We stayed here twice while traveling in and out of Greece via Athens. We were looking for a safe, convenient, clean, inexpensive hotel located near transportation and the main tourist sites. The Athens Cypria met our needs. It's not fancy, though I think we had one of the cheaper category rooms. The lower room comfort score is based on the bed being two twins pushed together rather than a true shared bed, which was a minor inconvenience.

Good value and location

I did not spend a lot of time at the hotel because I had a really early flight back to the US. The location was good, close to shopping and Singtagma square, room was clean, and good choice for the price.

Great breakfast!

The steps between the check-in desk & the elevator were not roller suitcase friendly & the hallways didn't inspire much confidence but the rooms are nice! A/C works, TV in room, shower is tiny but refrigerator & safe were nice amenities. Great breakfast!

Nice stay

The Athens Cypria is a real value, really just about ideal for travelers looking for moderately priced lodgings in an ideal location. If you insist on luxury, look elsewhere, and be prepared to pay what it takes. Rooms here are modestly sized, but certainly not cramped. Some of the furnishings are a little scuffed here and there, but we found it very clean, well appointed, comfortable and despite being quite full, wonderfully quiet (our room was in the back, away from the little pedestrian Street it fronts). The staff seems friendly and efficient, and went out of their way to accommodate a couple of small requests. The complimentary drink in the cafe adjoining was a nice touch (coffee, juice, ouzo) and we were delighted that a young woman appeared with a basket of oranges and apples right after we got to the room. But the best part is the location, steps from Syntagma , edge of Plaka, an easy stroll to Monastiriaki and the like. The major pedestrian walk Ermou is steps away. You can hike-climb pretty easily up to the walk that rings the Acropolis from here, reach on foot many major museums and of course an abundance of good places to eat and drink, and the Syntagma subway station is near for more distant adventures.

Affordable central Athens

The Athens Cypria Hotel was clean, pleasant, and very affordable for that part of town. Since the Syntagma area is not where I usually have business in Athens, I had several questions about where to find certain services, and the hotel staff were always both pleasant and helpful about answering my questions. I would certainly stay there again if I need to be in central Athens.

Small room that seemed neglected

Stayed there 2 nights. Had problems with water leaking from the fridge and a room safe that didn't lock. Were moved to another room on our request. Still had problems with the safe. Once batteries were changed safe worked okay. Rooms were small but comfortable. Bathroom had some mould. Staff spoke English well and were helpful in attending to our problems. Location is excellent. Don't think I would stay there again.

Family vacation

The best feature of the Athens Cypria is the location!! The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good with a variety for different tastes. The rooms were small (and the elevator smaller) but it was fine for our needs. We stayed in three different rooms during our vacation. Our last room on the first floor did not have a balcony or view which was disappointing but the others were good. I would probably stay again if in town.

Convenient Location

Stayed 2 nights (August 25th & 26th). Great locaton for those who intend to move around with public transport as the Airport Bus X95 stops at a bus-stop not far from Ermou Street, major shopping street. Syntagma Square is just opposite Ermou Street and there is a metro station plus the tram station is just nearby. This bus-stop is also the stop for the Athens City Tour Hop-On & Hop-Off service. Many places of interest, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. The reception was also very helpful during my stay and I would say, it is value for money due to its location to save on other means of transportation to get around. It only cost Euro 5 form the airport via public bus and the main bus stop going back to the airport is also just a stone throw away from Ermou Street or just the next stop after the latter, still within the Syntagma Square. However, I did not really see the hote facade as shown in the picture above; maybe this is an old picture.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Landmark - Mcdonald's is at the right-hand side of the Ermou Street entarnce. As Ermou Street is only for pedestrian walk while Diomias is a narrow lane on your right with no pass through traffic except for the street that ran parallel with Ermou Street on the right. So for those who opt to take the public transport may need to walk about 2 - 3 junctions from the entrance of Ermou Street to get to the hotel. The hotel is located at the lane where there is a corner shop that sells delicious chocolates with Haagen Dazs literally behind this gourmet.It seems some taxis did not even know the way. I was lucky to be able to locate this hotel quite easily with the helpful locals who not only showed the way but even called the hotel to confirm that I was on the right track.
