The bath was terrible, so small and inconforble the shower

Near to metro station..... Nice and clean room.....

The Cecil is a very affordable old Greek hotel with small rooms and rock-hard mattresses. It has a fantastic location close to Monastirski Square. The staff is friendly and speaks good English. The breakfast is old school but ok. The hot water is better than you might expect. Any recommendation of this hotel must be conditional. If you want the convenience of the excellent location and don’t necessarily care about creature comforts, the Cecil is a great choice.

The hotel is close to everything; food, shopping and attractions. The staffs are helpful.

More than decent hotel for experience Athens, very closed to Monastiraki and nightlife. Safe area and perfect to explore the city.

The breakfast room is one of the nicest, with a variety of food items. The shower stall didn't drain water quickly, be careful. Air conditioning and digital TV was provided and the bed was comfortable. This is an older hotel so do not expect anything to be large. Think Spartan!

Was looking for a cheap decent place to sleep while touring Athens for my wife and I. Booked hotel cecil for 2 nights. The hotel was what u wud expect for the money you paid. Small little rooms with a double bed which was ok but not great, small tv that was actually pretty decent. Small bathroom. Room was cleaned even tho we were only there for 2 days. Breakfast was free & was ok - a small spread. Air conditioning was great - it's a wall unit, not central air conditioning so it can make the room really cold, which is a big plus in the Athens summer heat. The location is very good - 2 blocks away from train that goes directly to the airport, rite near monastiraki flea market etc The reason we loved this hotel and would stay again if we return to Athens is because the staff was amazing! The service was on par with and even above what you can expect to receive in a fancy hotel. We arrived from straight from the airport at 8:30 am, completely worn out from traveling through the night & just wanting a place to sleep. The guy at the front desk told us that they were completely full but someone had just checked out and he can hav a room for us in 20 minutes (even tho we had only paid for the upcoming day). In the meantime he said we should go help ourselves to breakfast, which we did & the room was indeed ready by the time we finished breakfast. Throughout our stay the staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. Thank you hotel cecil!

I spent my last night in Athens here before heading back to the United States. The friendly hotel staff let me check-in a little early, which enabled me to get a jump on touring the New Acropolis Museum. The location is great. Near local urban stores and the Monastiraki and Omonia Square metro stations. The breakfast room on the second floor has small balconies that overlook bustling Athina Street. Syndagma Square is also within walking distance. My room was small and simple, but it was clean and had a private bath and air conditioning (important for a mid-July stay). One of the pillows was made of a very comfortable visco-elastic foam. Breakfast was simple, but the yogurt was probably the thickest and richest of all those served at the four hotels at which I stayed during my 10 days in Greece. The only thing I didn't like about this hotel was related to its age. Although some aspects were charming, the room paint color and bathroom tiles were drab.

Friendly and helpful guys at the reception. Basic continental-type breakfast (nothing fresh). Nice and clean small rooms. Easy walk to Plaka, Acropolis. Hotel felt totally safe (esp for two young women). I would stay at this hotel again, for the price and location. Just keep in mind-- totally European standards insofar as size. You're just sleeping in the hotel anyway :-)

Very well situated near metro, easy to go or come to the aerroport
