Good for travelers that they want to stay in a hotel just for sleep and hot shower The hotel is very close to the city center,Rooms are dark, old design, and very old furnitures, they have to change their beds and curtains are very old fashion and dirty, Bathroom was clean but you cannot open the window because it was close and no way to open it because was in the corridor Staff was friendly, Breakfast was in average good Not that value for money hotel**
Budget hotel with good service and small staff. Five minutes walking distance from Syntagma square and urban transport connection. They have bus directly form Syntagma to Athens airport. Breakfast option is poor, but enough. A lots of Greek cafes and bistros near to hotel. Stayed June 2017.
In a city that can be expensive (Aussie dolled vs Euro) this place was great. We stayed here after the original place we booked was a complete dive in a dodgy part of Athens. For us it was perfect; safe neighbourhood with kids, walk to everything, right on Ermou and Mitropolis, Plakka and more. Lots of cool places to eat, chill, socialise, shop and emerge yourself in Athena. It is a 2 min walk from the high profile hotels in the square where we stayed for $400 per night, and here it was less than half. From here we walked to every attraction gritty Athens had to offer. Make no mistake, this is a budget hotel, small but breezy, extremely clean, fantastic service and perhaps the worst bathroom we had in Europe. No matter I would stay her again.
Location is perfect to all the main attractions and easily accessible by the train. The rooms are quite dark and slightly dated. The shower was slightly strange as it was a shower with a seat and there was no where high to put the shower head! The water was nice and hot, clean towels each day. Hair dryer in the main room. Breakfast was really good, there was a large variety of food. The hotel allowed us to have a 30 min later check out which was good for us. It would have been good if the reception had offered us maps/ advice about the city on arrival.
My wife and I stayed a couple of nights in Athens on our 2 week trek thru Greece. If you are looking for elegance keep looking, but their location is great as far as shops and restaurants, walking distance to the Parliament, Zeus' tomb, Acropolis and the Plaka area which is quite lovely. Rooms are clean, good A/C, showers are tiny, but that seems to be the norm at most places.
A great little hotel in the heart of Athens. Really close to the main shopping and eating area and close to main railway stations. Rooms are small but have a balcony but are not cramped. Plenty of room for 2 people and luggage. The bathroom has a proper shower which is great! Price includes breakfast which is a buffet - plenty to choose from, you won't leave hungry. The hotel is very clean and feels safe. Great spot to be central in Athens. Good economical accommodation.
Nice hotel walking distance to a lot of major attractions like the Acropolis and the Parthenon, Plaka and monastiraki and syntagma square where you can see the changing of the guard and hop on the hop on hop off buses. Ermou shopping is also around the corner. Nice and friendly staff especially Hristos who was very helpful and always smiling. Beds were comfortable, bathroom a bit small but ok, many choices for breakfast it was all very nice.
Great hotel in great location for the price you pay. Most touristic spots are within walking distance. Very nice bars and restaurants around. The staff very friendly. We arrived at 5am because of our early flight and were very nicely surprised they gave us the room nearly at 7am, so they cared we were tired and felt appreciated the detail of giving it. No complaint about anything! Was great weekend!
I came to Athens without a hotel reservation. Took a chance on having someone at the airport arrange a stay for me at this place. Very happy I did. The hotel is very clean, very well-maintained (I checked every corner of the room, so did a good look-around from which to base my opinion). You can definitely get a good rest here, hot water, wi-fi AND computer in lobby if you need it. Complimentary breakfast too (which I unfortunately missed). I got what I paid for. If you are not sure where to go, this is an awesome choice to book and you won't have to worry. Staff was also VERY helpful, Very friendly. That was my experience anyway. Glad I wound up here for my short stay in Athens.
Achilleas has the perfect location for a tourist exploring Athens. It is just 3 to 4 minute walk from Syntagma square and in walking distance of most of the highlights of the city. We stayed for 3 nights with our 11 year old daughter and grown up daughter and never needed to take public transport. There is a fair bit of graffiti in the area around the hotel and in Athens in general. However this is not gang related and we never felt in any kind of physical danger in the area at all. Our experience was excellent: The hotel is run efficiently and has excellent front desk staff. They give good advice and are helpful. The hotel is clean and well organised. There is a lift - good for heavy suitcases. Breakfast was included in our rate and we found it to be excellent with a pretty good variety. We had no complaints about our room and bathroom. My only complaint was that there was no electric kettle - however one could go to reception with a cup and teabag anytime and get boiling water.
