Recent guest reviews
the hotel is a small and quaint in omonia square kinda downtown. the breakfast was nice but the workers there don't always know good english. the host a nice old guy was very helpful. near bus station.
Easy to get to, walking distance from Omonia or Monastiraki stations. Close to all historic sights in town centre. I had room 81 on top floor following an earlier review on trip advisor. It is the top floor with private rooftop patio overlooking the city and Acropolis. Unfortunately there is no shade and you will bake in the heat. The Acropolis view is more of a city view with lots of mid rise buildings between the hotel. Also the bed does not face the terrace due to room design for night views of Acropolis. Fridge and TV in room, ensuite bathroom. Shower water cut out on first night and toilet water pressure was low when flushing. Staff were friendly helpful and speak good English. Breakfast also decent. Bus stop to get to the bus terminal about two blocks away. Close to an ethnic immigrant neighbourhood so cheap places to eat away from tourist restaurants. Ok for a couple of nights if you will be spending most time outdoors.
Worst hotel ever!!they cancelled the room the day we arrived without telling us !!!! But learn it the day we arrived. The staff - receptionists very unpolite and the worst of all we couldn't find a hotel for a night
This is AN ABOVE AVERAGE hotel, in a very convenient location. The Odeon's Customer Service is EXCELLENT. ROOM was on the smaller side, but was clean and comfortable. We were provided with a balcony and view of the Acropolis. Alexia, who runs the Odeon was FANTASTIC and extremely helpful, courteous and provided us with a thorough run down. as to how to get around to the City Center Plaka (plaza). If you're looking for DELUXE FANCINESS, you might look elsewhere. IF you're looking for inexpensive, clean, courteous accommodations...look no further. Hotel has outdoor tables and chairs that you can hang out at and acclimate to the city's buzz and pace.
We booked pretty last minute so there's not much I can complain about if you don't have to book last minute and have lots of money think about going somewhere else in a safer area, but I mean you can walk to the centre (it's takes like 30 mins) during the day and we just got a taxi if it was starting to get dark. I wouldn't suggest walking around at night around this area! But all and all if your on a budget and have nowhere else it's not all that bad 😊
Staff at reception is friendly. When you go out, they hold your room key for you. It s a 20 minute walk to Syntagma. The closest metro to the hotel is Omoneia. They have continental breakfast. Clean room, and a bit small. If you re looking for an economic stay, Odeon hotel is good.
I booked this hotel at pretty short notice, on a tight budget, so wasn't really expecting luxury. The room was small but very clean and quiet-the view from the window overlooked what looked like an abandoned office block (i wasn't there to gaze out of my window!) Excellent air conditioning in the room as it was upto 38 degrees while we were there. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The area, known as 'Little Asia' is very edgy, homeless people, drug users etc etc so I wouldn't recommend it for young families or slightly nervous types!!, but its obvious when you visit Athens it is a city that has and still is struggling. All sights are walkable.
The Odeon is a small, but nice hotel. My room was small, but clean. The hotel has a good buffet breakfast (included) and a reasonably priced bar on the ground floor. I stayed for 2 nights. My room was very quiet - except for a 1:00 am fire alarm, which was evidently a false alarm and only stayed on for a minute or so. Despite the fact that the neighborhood is festooned with graffiti, I never felt uncomfortable on the streets. The hotel is close to Omonia Square, a short walk from excellent dining and the ancient agora of Athens, and a medium walk to the Archeological Museum. Staff is friendly and rates are reasonable.
Location was kind of bad. The area around the hotel was not good, a lot of homeless people, guys taking drugs. I didn't feel safe. Metro was near by. Room was bit noisy. In the shower you got only super hot water when it was hot outside and super cold when it was bit cold outside. So it was inpossible to take shower. Service was good.
This place tries to sell itself 'somewhat slightly upmarket' - don't be fooled it's not. Although I can't be 100% sure, I felt that when I was booking this hotel the indicator on the map indicated that this hotel was closer to Gazi - which is not true it is of course in Omonias. Once you step off the main streets, particularly across the street from this hotel I witnessed aggressive drug using in very run down areas (no offence meant to the drug users but I did not feel safe). The room was tiny and noisy (despite asking for a quiet room), shabby and well past it's prime. I would not recommend you stay here.
