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.
The hotel is conveniently located near Syntagma, and very near to the streets where university students and young people gather for pubs, live music and easy going movida greek style.. the Hotel is part of an existing building, the rooms are small but comfortables and they also have small balconies. staff is helpful and prices are convenient. the main advantage it offers is the location and easy fo access to all public transport to and from the airport at any time of the day and or night in syntagma square.
I booked this hotel at 11pm at night and checked in 30 minutes later due to my other hotel being really average. I chose this hotel because of the location. It is a few minutes walk from the main shopping street, buses, train etc. As a girl travelling on her own, it is a great hotel because of it's location. I would stay here again. The staff and cleaning staff are really friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is included which is good. It's nothing special but it's fine! I have been having fruit and yogurt (because it's gluten free) but there's a lot of other options. There is an amazing Absinthe bar across the road down a lane way. Full of locals which is great. The bed in the hotel was not good at all. I could feel every spring. Having a terrible bed in a hotel is the worst because after a long day of walking and sightseeing, you want to have a good sleep. These beds don't allow that. The pillow was fine. Very spacious room with a large window. Bathroom is fine. Everything works. They give you fresh sheets every day and mop the floor so it is very clean. No kettle! I thought that was unusual. I like to make tea in my room. No iron. No full length mirror. Aircon was great. Wifi works best at the door and the window. I'd stay here again but the beds really let this place down. If you love a comfortable bed then you might want to look for another hotel.
The Achilleas is a really good choice if you want a no frills hotel close to all the tourist sites and the Plaka, and within easy 5 minutes walk from the Sygmata train and bus stations. Very comfortable vibe. A good basic breakfast is included. There is an elevator. Air con works well. Large room with safe. Access to room and safe by electronic card Plenty of cafes and bars nearby. Bathroom excellent, but shower very small. Street noise could be a problem for light sleepers. Staff very helpful.
I only stay one day. If I came back to Athens, I want to stay this hotel again. There is a bathtub, elevator, and good location. Other hotel which I staid, no elevator ,no bathtub, no amenities. So I really recommend you this hotel.
This hotel is what one should expect from a 3 star hotel. Nothing about it was luxurious (mattress, bedding, towels, view, complimentary breakfast), but we had everything we needed. The desk staff was helpful, and the affiliated parking garage (extra cost) was convenient and reasonable. Our room and bathroom were quite small. The bathroom was especially small because it gave space for the elevator shaft, but we were not disturbed by the elevator. The only way that 2 people could be in the bathroom was if one was in the shower. But everything worked. We had no scenic view, but the neighborhood was calm and quiet. The booking was last minute, and we received a nice discount.
