Worn Around the Edges

I can see that this was once a hip and modern boutique hotel. However, now it is worn around the edges. The wallpaper is peeling, tile and bath tube scuffed, couch stained, etc. The linens appeared clean. The room we stayed in did not have a shower. It was a bath tube with a hand-held spout, which was annoying. The main pro is the location. It is very convenient to the metro stop. It is within walking distance of most major sites.

Great Location

Pleasant Staff make the difference anywhere you stay. The breakfast was lovely-and complimented by a perfect view of the small streets and activity. The jacuzzi is really a tub, and the view of the Acropolis is only possible by standing up and looking at it from one point, but it was fun to have a separate area to rest and dine. Plus, just walking out the door and being so close to the park, and shopping was perfect! I highly recommend this hotel.

Great location!

Great location! Small hotel with friendly staff. The hotel breakfast is great. The hotel does not have air conditioning throughout the halls and entrance and even for breakfast. The room air conditioning is regulated and is limited, so go during cooler months. Very small elevator. Selling points is that it is in a great location. Check out the local family restaurants that are hidden beyond the touristy areas.

family owned restaurants are so friendly and very affordable. Go one and two blocks behind the hotel and away from touristy areas for authentic Greece food.

Good location, but don't expect anything other than very basic

All rooms seem to be the same so not worth paying up for different room types. Suite layout not conducive to use of anything other than bedroom. Breakfast is not appetising, extremely cheap and basic. Bathrooms unattractive with bath style shower. They have attempted to be stylish with rooms with little design touches but have not spent much trying to create the look ie cheap white laminate flooring to mimic actual white marble tiles etc. Hotel other than check in desk and unreliable internet access has zero facilities. Location excellent for seeing all the sights on foot and for walking to some fantastic bars and restaurants. front desk staff were wonderful and very helpful. Overall not terrible value for money, and if you are on a bit of a budget it is fine, but don't expect too much.

Rather disappointing

The hotel is new, and incomplete. In fact, our bathroom door frame was unfinished with edges of tile and insulation showing. There were no room service menus and no phone extensions - we couldn't even call the front desk. Everything seemed disorganized and wasteful. Everyday, even though we hung our towels neatly on the towel bars, they were replaced with new towels. The staff were not helpful and did not have knowledge of local sites or day trips. The staff were not helpful with navigating the city or using public transport. The breakfast buffet had too many sweet things and not enough savory items for my tastes and the eggs that were out were cold and poached hard.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the Express Airport Bus X95 to or from Syntagma Square and save BIG TIME on a taxi. Taxi is 50 Euros, the bus ticket is 5 Euros.

Diamond Hotel Athens

This is a boutique hotel with only about 20 rooms and is brand new. The complimentary breakfast is excellent! Crepes, fruits, eggs, cereal, croissants, breads, etc. This was the best part for us. Within walking distance to acropolis and monastraki flea market. Acropolis is free on Sundays,& the museum is closed on Mondays. We had a fridge & cd player, but no cd's or iron/board. This hotel was in the heart of the city and close to almost everything. Since in city, a little noisy in the street. The bed and pillows were super comfy - slept great!! Liked the 32" LCD tv - wish we had movies to watch, since most shows in Greek. There are no rental places here we were told, just documentaries about Athens.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The Diamond Hotel is located right in the heart of the Plaka, which is in walking distance to everything, shopping, the acropolis and museum, lycabettus hill. Just a little hard to locate since the hotel's sign is against the wall and does not protrude to show from down the street.
