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.

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.

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.

What a dump

The only positive thing about this hotel was the location and the wireless connection in the room. The place was old and run down; the carpeting was coming up all over the place; it was dirty and depressing...I would never go there again unless they renovated it and hired less harried staff.

Athens Cypria Hotel

The hotel was good. The cab driver couldn't find it, so we were dropped off and left on our own. We found it after asking three different places for directions. The staff wasn't all that friendly in comparison to other hotels we stayed at in Athens. Great location though. Close to shopping and the hotel was clean. I would probably spend the money on a different hotel next time though, just based on the staff not being that friendly.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Catch a cab to and from Syntagma Square and map out the hotel's location. It's easier to walk to than get directions or dropped off somewhere else!!

Great location, good price

We first were given a small room in the back. The bathroom tap broke in the middle of the night. We were told to shut off the water and that someone would deal with it in the morning. The morning staff was much more responsive. We were immediately switched to a larger room with working plumbing, still in the back (that's better as it cuts on the street noise, but there is a constant hum from the hotel air conditioner). The hotel location is great, close to everything, and relatively quiet. Rooms are very clean, breakfast is fine. We'll be back for a couple more nights at the end of the month and put in a request for a room with a view of the Acropolis. There is an extra charge of 10 euros for those.

Athens Cypria Review

The Athens Cypria is in a great location, once you find it. It is loacted right in Syntagma Square and is a convenient walk to the Acropolis and Plaka. We found the hotel to be pleasant enough, but the location was the highlight. Breakfast was included in the room rate and was quite nice even though you had to walk through the smoking area to get to it. They do not have any non-smoking rooms, but the room we had was not a problem. The bathroom was a good size with a good tub and shower. We enjoyed our stay here, but would have preferred softer beds. The location really makes this hotel a good value for the $$ spent.
