Good value option.

We stayed here for literally 7 hours in between a flight and a boat. This place was amazing value (31.00GBP) and is close to the metro station. The room was tiny, as was the bathroom. Possibly the smallest I've ever been in but the aircon worked, it was clean and it was just for sleeping. Free and superbly fast internet. For all that, it was exactly what we wanted.

Exactly what I was looking for.

A friend and I stayed at this hotel for two weeks. We both wanted something affordable, safe, and a good location to the ruins of Athens. It met all three of our requirements. Positive comments: Room was very clean and well maintained. One day the toilet broke, and it was fixed later in the afternoon before I had even the opportunity to ask. Staff was very friendly, especially the waitresses who worked in the cafe. Hotel is three blocks from the National Archaeological Museum, and maybe four blocks from where the bus leaves for Cape Sounio (Temple of Poseidon.) An easy and short walk to the main sights, fifteen minutes to twenty minutes to the closest sight, 30 minutes to 35 minutes to the acropolis or the temple of zeus. Negative comments: Not such a great view, but it didn't bother me because I was hardly in the room. Yes, there are prostitutes directly outside of the hotel, but they didn't bother us once, and if I didn't know ahead of time that there were prostitutes there, I probably wouldn't have even noticed them. It's not the best area, but I always felt safe walking back to the hotel because I stuck to the same route, and there were plenty of people out and about until at least eleven o'clock at night. (would recommend taking a taxi back if you don't feel safe or if it's too late.) Aside from the museum, polytechnic, and the central market, there's not much in that area. Not much for dining options in the area either. Overall, the hotel was what I wanted, and aside from the things outside of the hotel's control, I would say it was just fine. If I ever went back with a friend I would consider staying here again, but if I went with my family or a partner, I might equally consider elsewhere. Hope this helps.

What an experience

We asked for a queen bed and got two twin beds. I/m not sure they know what a queen bed is. The hotel was close to the Sightseeing Bus, the underground rail/subway, the post office, some good restaurants and bakeries. We could also walk to different sight seeing areas. The nightlife was a little scary as there were ladies of the night although they did not both us.

Hotel Parnon

Okay. I clicked that the location of this hotel was bad... which it was in a sense, but was great in other senses. It's very convenient to the metro and to a lot of the tourist areas (Plaka, the Acropolis, the Archaeological Museum, etc.). However, my friends who were living in Greece for the summer were shocked that I had chosen a hotel in Omonia, because of all the drug problems in that area. We did experience that a little, but I would definitely stay at Hotel Parnon again. The hotel let us store our bags there for a weekend when we flew to Santorini, and let us add an additional night to our reservation on very short notice. I was very impressed by the quality for the price. My only caution would be the drug thing, but I'm not sure that that would have been absent in other parts of the city anyway, and if you're vigilant it shouldn't be a problem. Also, the breakfast was huge and delicious.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you're going from Athens to Santorini, Aegean Air offers flights that only take 45 minutes (as opposed to a six or eight hour ferry ride). This gave us a lot more time in Santorini. And, Hotel Parnon stored our larger luggage for us when we went.

Excellent hotel and staff

The hotel is fantastic, impeccable. Breakfast as well. Great internet and 1.5 blocks away from metro, 15 blocks away from Acropolis. yes, the area is rough at night. You may see drug addicts in the street or prostitutes in the area, but the police station is one block away. Like in all big cities, pay attention and life is good. This hotel is super and great value for money

Parnon Hotel

This hotel was fine - the staff was nice, they had a computer with fast internet you could use which was very convenient. They are really close to a main metro station that can get you to anywhere you want in Athens pretty much. The room was smaller than I thought. Was located in a very very seedy part of town! I would not walk outside alone at night. They had a lack of enough tourist information - one pamphlet. They had no maps or anything either of the town or how to get around. Their english was decent enough.

The metro from Omonia to Acroplis is so short and only a few blocks from the hotel. Ofcourse, beware walking at night in the area right outside the hotel.
