4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very good customer service, and the facilities are nice and modern.

Nice hotel, about 30 minute walk to acropolis. Would stay again.

We arrived at the Atheneum and waited about 20 minutes to be bused to their other hotel across the road which was inconvenient. However, they had the best breakfast I have ever received at a hotel!

Nice hotel with a friendly staff. Location was not in the best area.

Hotel personnel were very helpful always willing to provide assistance. We were very satisfied with the service provided by the hotel.

Good hotel! Nice staff The shower has a issue but we could leave with it

Beautiful hotel, very comfortable beds, clean and friendly staff

Nice and clean hotel, close to city center and tourist attractions. Easy access to cabs, tram and bus. Friendly staff at reception and housekeeping. Overall good experience.

When I arrived to the hotel they said we were randomly "upgraded" to the new suites across that street. When my friend and I arrived at the newer hotel it was beautiful at first. The lobby was really bright and colorful and the staff as soon as we arrived was very attentive! Then we got to our room....it had minimal furniture to the point that it almost felt empty and then once we started looking closer we saw that a few baseboards were missing and there was even a few loose wires in the bathroom. On top of that the shower doors didn't close all of the way so that when I got out of the shower the marble floors accumulated a puddle of water and I almost slipped. A bit of a hazard. The room just wasn't up to par with the price.

Amazing and helpful staff. Clean rooms. Not too far from the main parts of the town.

We enjoyed our stay at the Athenaeum Grand Hotel in Athens. It's a very nice hotel with friendly staff and clean rooms. The room is pretty spacious. However, Wi-Fi signals aren't very strong.

What an amazing experience. The hotel staff, especially Joanna, were extremely kind and helpful. They gave great recommendations and have a shuttle to take you downtown. Awesome experience.

The breakfast is really good The parking was ok. The staff was great. The wifi works but only when the TV is on. The air condition was ok, since you turn off the power when you leave it's never cold when you return. The shower floor is slippery but just put a towel and it was fine.

The breakfast was amazing, centrally located which was nice. However, it's in between two strip clubs. I could hear the music in the middle of the night. Also half of the staff were really pleasant and helpful, while the other were so rude. I couldn't believe one of the woman's attitude. Literally shocked. If you are only staying for a couple days it's fine, but there are better options out there.

Very good hotel, will book again! Great price too! A 4 star hotel

Great hotel, has free parking and free breakfast, with three night lux room booking, even got free dinner for two everyday.

The hotel is beautiful. The breakfast was amazing. We asked for toilet paper 3x and they yes-ed us to death, but never brought it. They were also not prepared for our third person when we arrived, even though orbitz had communicated with them and told us it was fine. The hotel was lovely, but it's sandwiched between two"girly" bars.

I couldn't enjoy the amenities at this hotel only because my flight arrived in the middle of the night. Orbitz was great in contacting the hotel that I would be arriving there around 3am but my flight was delayed, which was unexpected. So when I got to the hotel I got there around 4am. The front desk person was not there initially and was doing something in another room and when he finally came out he said that they were about to cancel my stay there. First of all, I paid for the room. I didn't even get to use the full room because I was only there to sleep and take a shower. That's it. Just remember, that service is slow in general in Greece, the service was VERY slow at the hotel. I sat at a table and noone came to me so I went to the bar where I was able to order a coffee. It's a nice hotel and I loved the bathrobes and slippers and it was close to the main attractions. The downstairs interior design was neat but that was about it. Where my room was located, it was loud and there was an odd door that opened up in the bathroom that led to the outside but it overlooked someone's home but it was fenced in so noone should be able to come through. I think they need to work on their customer service though. When I asked about what the best way would be to see the main attractions, the guy did not know how to answer my questions. I asked about the full access pass that would allow me to see most of the main sites and he was unsure.

The decor was wonderful, the room was comfortable and provided everything that was needed, the breakfast was amazing, the staff were incredibly helpful, courteous and welcoming.

This is a new and very modern hotel with very reasonable on line rates. The location is difficult for taxis to access but were on call in minutes. It is a short ride to the acropolis area. Busses are available and a tram stop is a short walk away. Alas, there are no Metro stops nearby. All that aside, the staff are to a person the most courteous and helpful I've seen is Greece. They are not family. They have jobs to do. They are profesionals that are friendly, courteous, and hospitable that are willing to go out of their way to accomodate your needs.
