Perfect!

Would recommend Mon, Oct 20, 2014
I visited Athens for the first time for a long weekend in October.. We got to the hotel at night and the area surrounding it did look a little dodgy due to the closed shutters and graffiti.. Nonetheless we explored our surrounding areas at near midnight and if felt safe.. Perfect location with a variety of bakeries (amazing breads). 15-20 minute walk to the main attractions. surrounded by funky shops and stalls, metro is a five minute walk what else could we ask for?? Roof top bar has an amazing view of the Acropolis at night. Would definitely visit this hotel again! Staff were the most helpful I've ever encountered :).

Needs some renovation

Would not recommend Sat, Jan 11, 2014
Melia Athens could definitely use some renovation at all levels. From furniture, flooring, carpets, to bed linens and towels which are now grey/yellowish (I believe some day used to be white?). Room temperature is definitely an issue, and the poor window isolation makes you feel unpleasantly closer to the outside both from a temperature and noise perspective.

Not Recommended

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 30, 2012
They gave us a smoking room although we had booked a non-smoking then gave us a twin bed room. The carpet was very dirty and the central heating could not be controlled so we had to open the window that had no screen and we had a bad mosquito problem. They tried to double charge use for a meal we had paid for already and the woman at the front desk all had unprofessional attitudes. I would not recommend this hotel as a 4 star but a 3 star. Also the breakfast was not included although the description on this site said it was.

Terrible Experience

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 30, 2012
This is a 3 star hotel at best. Room was a smoking room although we specifically asked for a non-smoking room. They gave us a two twin bed room instead. Very dirty carpet, the window had no screen so we had tons of mosquitos and we could not turn off the central heating that got uncomfortably hot throughout the night. The women at the front desk always had attitude and they charged us twice for one meal although we had paid for it at the time with cash. Overall very bad experience and will never use this hotel again.

Would recommend Mon, Oct 8, 2012
Very good hotel with roof pool and great views. The room was cleaned every day and new towels provided every day.lThe only disappointing aspect of this hotel is that we didn't have a kettle in the room to make coffee. The roof bar prices were on the high side compared with the centre of Athens.

Good price and location

Would recommend Mon, Jul 30, 2012
Stayed here for a couple of nights, located a few blocks away from the national museum, and few blocks to the closest subway station, in an area that's just outside of the tourist area which made getting to where we wanted to go really easy and convenient. The hotel staff were really nice and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable.

recent vacation

Would recommend Fri, May 18, 2012
The hotel was fine and the staff was very nice. The rooftop pool area was particularly enjoyable. Wireless service was odd, free in some places on the property but not in your room and the location of the hotel is not in a great area unfortunately. The best thing about the location was its proximity to the subway but it was not an area where I felt comfortable walking after dark.

Money saver

buying the week long subway pass was the best thing we did. Easy to use and saved a lot of time and trouble when going to visit different areas of the city.

Won't be back!

Would not recommend Tue, May 1, 2012
First off, they have two twin beds pushed together to make one bed. You would think with two adults checking in, they would provide a room with one queen size bed. to make matters worth, the twin beds were not secured, so they woud separate when we got in them. There was no clock, the room was very small, and they did not provide any hand towels. The primary reason I chose this hotel is because it was located close to where my fiance lived. Next time I go to Athens, I will spend more money to get a quality hotel

Average to good hotel in a complex neighbourhood

Would not recommend Sun, Apr 29, 2012
Easy access from the airport by metro, three blocks from metro station. Don't walk the area after sunset with your luggage. Plenty of junkies and pick pockets. Some anti-riot police during the day. Check in OK. Room internet at extra charge. Room OK but small, bathroom nice and good size, towels just so so. For a change (I think this is becoming a standard in many hotels) at check out they wanted to charge me for mini bar that I never even open. Breakfast was good and service excellent at the restaurant. Hotel is walking distance to many attractions including the Acropolis, Parliament, Ancient Olympic Stadium and so on.
