Athinaikon Hotel1.0 out of 5.0

Although I live in the suburbs I needed to be in the Centre & decided a stay here was the best option considering the cold & snowy weather. I needed somewhere warm, clean, central & with wifi. This place delivered all very satisfactorily. Additionally the staff were very friendly & helpful & I loved the old building :) Because of the age & layout of the building there is no lift & rooms are small, but perfectly adequate. It was warm, comfortable & a plentiful supply of hot water. One thing I did note was there was more coat hangers supplied than in most higher rated hotels I've stayed in! For the price I paid it was very good value for money & if the need arose I would be happy to stay again :)
This is actually the smallest room I´ve ever been in - and that is in fact not something bad. I came to Athens (I´ve been there quite a few times) and stayed there for a couple of days, before going to the islands. What do you need in Athens? A place to sleep, and take a bath before going out to see the beauty of the city. Hotel Athinaikon served that purpose for me, and I will return next time I pass through.
Nice staff, good position(3 min from the monastiraski station), near bus station. Very good area, all the shops around. Nice room, good mattress, I've slept very well. Every day they changed my towels and there were even shampoo and a soap in the bathroom. Love it. Go for it.
Very good beds in a spacious room (for 2 people) and Nick gave us a very warm welcome. The location is OK not perfect but quite good, the place is more quiet than the ones on the main road which is a bonus.
Possibly the worst hotel experience I've ever had. The room was like an echo chamber and the noise inside the hotel was unbelievably loud. This carried on all through the night and into the the next morning. I didn't get a wink of sleep. I also checked out a day early so I could book into a hotel round the corner to get some actual sleep before the next leg of my journey. Don't waste your money.
We booked a room for 2 and we had a wonderful stay. The staff was very kind and helpful. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk from the center of everything, so that was excellent. Wifi, TV set and air conditioning in the bedroom. Recommended.
No frills hotel but very clean - room cleaned daily, with fresh bedding and towels daily too - and comfortable Reception staff extremely friendly and helpful. Superb location close to a metro station, but all major areas/sites in walking distance. Would highly recommend.
Hi, I was booked in at Athinaikon Hotel from 4 - 8 July and found the place to be an absolute nightmare! Athens was the last leg of our journey through Greece and it turned out to be the worst part of our trip, thanks to Athinaikon Hotel. On arrival, we asked the receptionist (Vicky) to please assist us with our luggage and she responded extremely rudely "you did not pay for such services, tell your friend to help you" there was also no one else available to help at that moment. My sister in-law has had several back operations and could not walk with her luggage up the stairs - so to be responded to like that, was completely uncalled for and disrespectful to say the least! After half an hour, we came down and there was a young man at the desk - so apparently there was someone available to assist. The sewerage smell was overwhelming, and the room reeked with the smell of moth balls, furthermore the toilet/shower pipes was leaking and the place was flooded. The window frames were falling apart, the walls rotting and the view from the room was non-existent, literally just a rotten wall outside our window...Outside, the streets were filled with rubbish and trash all over. The hotel walls were covered in graffiti and looked nothing like advertised on the websites. The area itself was very unsafe, with several suspicious looking people on the street - hence we didn't feel comfortable walking around to get dinner that evening. We left the hotel the very next morning, as those conditions were simply unbearable. When I contacted them to complain and request a refund, I was informed that tripadvisor took photos and was happy with the place ...how could tripadvisor approve of such a place for international visitors is beyond me and that for €135! The photo's I have provided are the REAL Athinaikon. Not to mention the disgusting hospitality of the hotel staff! I would not recommend this place to anyone!
I've been in this hotel for one week. The position is perfect if you want to visit Athens walking, but it's also very close to the metro station. It's absolutely not expensive, perfect if you want to spend all your day visiting the city and come back just to relax. The bedrooms are quite small but clean, they make it clean and change the towels every day. The lady at the reception is very kind and helpfull, I really enjoyed my staying there!
Basic hotel with everything you'd need. The lady who runs it (not sure if she owns it) is super nice. Allowed us to check in free and store our bags before we left for the whole day no charge. Fast wifi and a close walk to everything
- Walking distance to Ancient Agora and Roman Agora
- Free WiFi in rooms and public areas
