Claridge Hotel2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I picked this hotel for its proximity to a metro station. I didn't have high expectations based on the price, reviews on Orbitz and other travel sites, yet was still disappointed. The location, while not in a chic nor pretty part of town was good, but the overall experience was below average. My main concern was being misled by the fact that the Orbitz page indicated "air conditioning" as an available facility but when I asked for the AC remote control I was told different things ranging from "it's broken," to "no AC available after Oct 1," and "you don't need AC as it's not hot." It was difficult to demand what I was promised as the staff spoke little English. Well, it was not a cool night and I arrived from sight seeing all sweaty and wanted AC, but it was not available hence I had an uncomfortable stay. I had to sleep with the windows open which means dealing with loud street noise (location is one of the busiest areas in Athens-- an intersection of 6 major streets), mosquitoes, and heat. My other issues were: thin walls (you can hear guests flush toilets, cough, haul luggage through halls, staff mopping floors, elevator doors clanking all night etc etc). All this could have been abated if the staff would just give me the AC remote control which I know I was entitled to. The overall cleanliness is also questionable.
Did not stay and am trying to get my money back. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. Terrible staff, dirty and extremely small rooms!
