Everything worked out well for me in the hotel: My super-clean room and bathroom and the excellent service. I have to thank the staff for the kind attention. I am grateful to Manus for all his advice and the information he left me with his workmate about the National Parade. Manus is a top professional, very attentive, knowledgeable and has the best disposition to help from the reception. I could see that the hotel service has a great quality; the team made my stay comforting, secure and enjoyable. In the event of any incident or information required, they deal with customers with absolute effectiveness. Even though the street is not very eye-appealing, I never felt unsafe during the eight days I have just spent there. So, for the cleanliness of the sheets, towels, bathroom and room, for the politeness and helpfulness of the staff and for the 5 star location, I would recommend Athinaikon Hotel.

The owners of this hotel are very helpful and friendly and do speak English. The rooms are well maintained and very clean. The hotel's location was close to all the tourist attractions in the old quarter of Athens. The Athens Metro is very close to this hotel within ten minutes walking distance. Go for a wander through the streets nearby and find lovely shops, restaurants, cafes, the flea market and of course the ancient sites.

Just returned from a 3 night stay here. Friendly staff on a 24 hour reception with good English language skills. Hotel internet and tv in the room. Secure and walking distance to tourist attractions, ancient sites are all pretty close, with coffee shops and restaurants close by too. However ... it was a bit of a shock on arrival. The road / neighbourhood doesn’t look great. Grimy, shutters with lots of graffiti and homeless people not to far away. First impressions weren’t good ... but I never actually felt unsafe. My room was very small, and was a smoking room. I could smell cigarettes which isn’t great for a non-smoker. Bathroom was good though. When I booked this was the cheapest hotel / private room option. And I WOULD stay again. It was functional .. but the value of nice staff with English language skills is important to me. And although I was a little shocked when I arrived ... it actually felt safe and secure throughout

You get what you pay for ! at Athinaikon hotel ,perfect hygiene, warm welcome , nice reception , very helpful and friendly staff and team and most of all a great location very close to monastiraki square andrews street , the flea market and all the needed stores...bakery, pharmacy ... etc especially for travelers with children .. all what you need is around you ..,..

Small, very clean hotel in Athens' 'hipster' Psyrri district. Some describe this area as the SOHO of Athens. Although tourists do make their way here, one primarily encounters locals streaming among the delicious cafes, restaurants, coffee houses, and bars. Traditional Greek music flows almost every night. The best is on a Thurs, Fri, or Sat night at the restaurant Stou Forre. Daytime finds the very alive streets filled with shops emanating yummy aromas of herbs and spices, meats and cheeses, bakeries, produce and an abundance of Greek food. At night the metal shop doors are down, colorful with graffiti, only to be thrown open at daybreak filled with exotic wares, it seems, from the world over. It's quite easy and interesting to stroll from here to all of the Athens' neighborhoods(Monastiraki, Plaka, Tiseio, etc) as well as to the Acropolis. The hotel does not have an elevator which is great allowing a little more exercise for one more pastry. The room is small but well-equipped, excellent wifi, A/C, and lighting. The bathroom is quite small but with a good shower, plenty of hot water, and fine for us. The linens are very nice, in fact, the wonderful housekeeper changes our pressed bed linens daily. The 24/7 front desk folks are accommodating and had our laundry perfectly done for a reasonable price. For our 5 night stay, this hotel has been the best value and location.

This is a small hotel with basic amenities. It has three floors and no elevator. So if you are looking for luxury do not go there. However, if you want a clean hotel, excellent beds, great location, very good price and extremely friendly service, this is the place for you. If you do not mind city noise, any room will serve. If you want a quiet room, choose a back room. I recommend to book at the hotel site for the best prices.

It didn't definitely live up to my expectation based on reviews here (I know it's a budget hotel, but still)! The room was super small and somewhat dirty and smelly (I got a smoking room although I'm not a smoker!!!), with an extremely small and not-so-functional bathroom. Although it's close to (a few blocks away from) the Monastiraki Metro Station (nice and safe touristic area), it starts to get a bit unsafe (though, not that bad!) as you walk toward the hotel at night. However, during the day it was a vibrant neighborhood with lots of nice cafes, restaurants, and other shops. Staffs were nice. If I go back to Athens, I won't stay here!

Good basic hotel near the center and just round the corner from the amazing market. Walk out the front door and down the street opposite and you come to an area full of great places to eat and friendly bars. Staff here are very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is close to the main touristic points and to the amazing psiri area full of nice restaurants. The room was really small but clean and as we just stayed there for two night that was all we needed. Recommend if you only there for a short stay.

This hotel is a short walk from the main tourist area of Athens and this others easy access to restaurants, bars and attractions. The rooms are quite small but still comfortable enough for 2 people. The air conditioning went to 17 degrees but once it kicked in, it did the job well. Our only complaint is that we could smell the cigarette smoke of the room next door so strongly, it was as if they were smoking in our room. As non smokers, this was pretty horrible! Other than that, the staff were friendly and reliably booked us taxis when needed. Would definitely stay here again.
