Recent guest reviews
I have booked a room in this hotel recently for 3 nights to stay with my family but unfortunately had to cancel it. While booking with Booking.com did not realise that cancellation was not refundable.For most of the hotels on that website there is a free cancellation available. Achillion Hotel charged me a whole price despite my explanation as according to their hotel policy and as they stated they very strict about that.Fair enough but we are all humans and all make mistakes. Also hotels are for people not the other way.It's was a big expense for me and my family. Very unpleasant experience! I would not recommend that hotel even though I never had a chance to stay there. But the approach towards the customers just put me off! This is not the way to run the business!
Very good location close to the central Omonia sq. Clean rooms normal size, everyday changing towels, air conditioning centralized, beautiful bathroom, very nice self-service breakfast with well-known Greek food specialities. Receptionist was the best I've ever met - just perfect and very professional. Perfect knowledge of English, Spanish, French. Briefly - we were lucky to stay for one week in this hotel.
The hotel location is fantastic, during our stay in Athens for 4 days never used any transportation except from and to the airport. The room was descent but the bathroom was bad (need renovation and some effort cleaning it). The breakfast was good various options and enjoyed the coffee machine :) Wifi was absolutely horrible, first day there was internet other 3 days was impossible to connect from the room!
The hotel is centrally located. One station away (from Omonia) from Monastiraki and the Acropolis. This is a relatively old hotel in need of renovation especially the bathroom. But, the breakfast buffet (for only 5 euros) was nice and more quality for the price paid. And the staff was helpful and friendly.
Good price, good staff and excellent breakfast. It very close to metro Omonia station and also walking to Monostrika shopping square. Be careful lot of people stare outside and may not recommend for night outs unless you take a taxi
A nice hotel not far from metro station and not far to walk to city center. Gives a perfect value for your money. Good for a city stay or overnight stay. staff was very friendly and helpful.. breakfast was good.
Pros: 1. close to metro, shops, and restaurants 2. breakfast is pretty good 3. decent price Cons: 1. They allow smoking in the rooms and there is no such thing as smoking/non smoking rooms. Our room smelled like cigarette was burning, all day. 2. The ac doesn't work well. It was 100+ degrees during our visit and the rooms were not cool enough.
The hotel was well priced and conveniently located in between two metro stations. The room was clean and all the amenities promised were in working order. The reception was very helpful and made our early check out a breeze. The room was fairly small and the view wasn't great but other than that it's a perfect choice for someone who just needs a place to sleep.
The only good thing was the nice receptionist. The hotel is 15 min walk from Plaka but the neighboorhoud is not pleasent at all. The bathrooms need a very urgent renovation and some of the beds are in a very poor condition. I would not recommend
Room: Clean, Not a big room but sufficient for two people, good amenities. We barely spent any time in the hotel due to touring so this was very fit for purpose where we only came back to sleep and shower. Only three downsides of the room was that their plumbing system is interlinked so when you use the shower you experience a lot of temperature fluctuation. Secondly, the walls are very thin so you can hear your neighbours, above, sideways and below. The toilet also has a loud flush. Thirdly, the wifi is very poor. Luckily as we are in the EU I was able to use my data but the wifi is barely useable. Also on a side note, the rooms don't have milk but we bought some from the kiosk near omonia station. Hotel: Great location - only 5 min walk from Omonia station which is one metro stop from the centre. Or if you are like me and my partner, we walked to the centre in about 20 minutes. Round the corner from the hotel there are some dodgy streets; just be careful and you'll be fine; the main street which the hotel is on is fine. The street doesn't always look safe but it is! There's a kiosk only a few yards away which you can get water and other amenities. Omonia square also has couple of restaurants, patisseries, gelato places etc Staff: ALL staff were very friendly and helpful. If we needed anything they were always there to help. They have plenty of maps and brochures within the hotel to help. Breakfast: good for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Cereals, fruit, eggs, fried toasts, juices etc.
