Best Western Ilisia Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Location is very convenient. Significantly cheaper than the neighbouring Hilton. Breakfast is basic but acceptable. Tiny rooms. Not sound proof so you hear people talking in corridor. Wouldn't stay here longer than a couple of nights.

The rooms are very small; in the bathroom smells very hard of mold, old, something unpleasant. 2 days and one night was very hot, almost unbearable, and I could not do anything to correct because with the window open the noise from the outside air conditioners was heard loudly and at 3 am it becomes very cold. Bath at restaurant level is ancient :) Overall, they ask too much money per room and what they are offering.

Good space and well located, definitely not upmarket but adequate, good restaurants around, find PITAPAT 150 meters away you will love it, A little old fashioned and did expect more for this fabulous capital city, Pictures do not reflect this old style hotel, just requires modernizing but polite staff, reasonable but not fantastic breakfast. There are just better deals around, for a country who has a 400 Euro a month average wage this hotel is well over priced and not in line with the economy.

It's a good hotel, but it could be better. The strong point - it's central postion. Easy access to most downtown seesights and metro Athens. The rooms need more attention, care, even renovation I could say, although the personnel tries hard. It was a bussiness trip, but it could be more pleasant.

I have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. I was a bit wary because of previous reviews but I can honestly say that this was a very pleasant hotel. The hotel is clean, the room was of a good size with a balcony. The bathroom was on the small side but was very, very clean and the water nice and hot. The breakfast was good and there was plenty of everything. The staff on the desk could not have been more helpful and printed our transfer voucher and also phoned the transfer office for us. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.

I stayed there one night in between flights and I couldn't believe how dated the hotel was. Thankfully I got a really good deal, otherwise I'd be very upset I spent the going rate on this old, run down, distastefully decorated hotel. The bedroom are old too and the light sockets look like they are going to explode everything you press them. Beds are not very comfortable - old spring mattresses that make weird noises when turning. The "breakfast" is a very poor selection of bread and cheese, with a few add ons. Staff are friendly - but that's the only good thing about this hotel, alongside its location.

It's reasonable hotel, a little bit old, good front desk services. Starbucks is just next door - very convenient. It's a 3 star hotel. Breakfast is very simple. Good air conditioning. Worth the price. It's not a place to hang on , just to take a good shower and sleep.

We stayed at the hotel for one night and the hotel while showing some ageing furniture, was clean, with all the comfort you can expect. The location is quite close from the center. The reception person was also very kind in accepting a package and prepaying for me (from own money) even if I had not checked out yet. Thank you very much again.

This was like travelling back in time. Stayed one night and it started badly when we got into the rooms and saw the '70's decor! Then we went for a quick bite to eat at Goody Burger (horrible, horrible place) and when we got back and turned on the kids room light, our youngest jumped a mile when a cockroach ran out under the sideboard. Having despatched the monster with my size 10, I immediately went to reception to request some spray. They sent up a member of staff who proceeded to spray the corners of the room and behind the curtains. He opened the bathroom door and yelled in shock that there was a huge one which he then proceeded to empty half a can of bug spray onto before collecting it up in some tissue. He sprayed the rest of the bathroom and into the air vent (I suspect this is where they had come in). He then opened the balcony door to help get rid of the now acrid fumes in the room from the spray. My 12 year old son, now coughing and choking on the fumes, was naturally scared of the room and it took some persuading to calm him down ready for sleep after of long exhausting day. The next morning we were treated to some of the most bizarre musak in the breakfast room I think I have heard. Saxaphone and pan pipe versions of George Michael and Leo Sayer tracks, plus some random '70's hits turned weird... All in all, the hotel staff were fine, but honestly this hotel has seen it's day and needs completely overhauling. The only upside is there's a great Starbucks across the road and if you're that way inclined (which I am not) there is a late night strip club next door... enough said..

When I checked-in on June 24, 2017, Antreas greeted me with a poker face. He told me about the wifi connection in heavy English accent, but I did not pay too much attention. After a long flight to Athens, what I want first is a cold shower. Besides, the logon ID and password are usually on the key card. I later found out that the ID and password on the card are incorrect. I came down to the front desk and asked him again. Did I make him annoyed or did he have a bad day? When I said thank you and left, he said something nasty behind my back. I am not stupid, Antreas! I heard it. This is my first visit to Greece and Antreas is the first Greek whom I talked with. If you don't enjoy your job, please find another one. I nominated you the worst employee of the year award. on This is my first visit to Greece.
