Crystal City Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Initially the hotel seemed off the tourist hub but in hindsight it is close to the metro underground, enroute the tourist sightseeing buses stop 30 metres from the hotel. Staff were friendly especially the bar attendant during the afternoon and evening shift, his name was Fortus and he definitely made the holiday memorable. Definitely recommend this hotel.

Nice Hotel which is easy to access from the airport by Metro. The Hotel provides a scuttle service from the Hotel to the airport. Its a safer way to travel than the Metro as some of our group had the unfortunate experience of being robbed on the metro when traveling on same from the airport.The Hotel is only three stops from the Acropolis by Metro. It has a very nice cafe next door which sells good coffee, breakfast, cakes, & well priced meals. The bedrooms are fine, decent shower & serve a good breakfast.They also have a roof top bar with a view or the Acropolis. The price of drinks at this bar are on the expensive side, nearly double that of what you would pay at other bars. Staff are friendly & helpful. Overall a decent hotel in a decent location in which to explore Athens

During my last stay in Athens, I had booked a 7-night stay at their sister hotel but was relocated to this hotel for the first night. Hotel is very old looking. It was clean, staff was very nice, polite and helpful. However, hotel is for a business clientele and groups. On the night I stayed there, there was a group from a school trip that I could easily hear late in the hallways that evening. Fortunately, I experienced worse in my travels and was also very tired because of an extra long flight to Athens. Got the smallest room on the floor (see floor plan in pictures). Clean, comfortable bed, but with no view and the smallest shower I've ever seen. Shower did not even have a curtain to keep the water from splashing everywhere. Location is for me the main issue. If you go north and West, it is somehow ok. But if you go south to walk to the Plaka for instance, you will need to cross a very sketchy area (see pictures). I walked around by night and was not feeling safe at all. If you have a family, I would definitely recommend you take a cab. That was definitely not the type of hotel and location I had in mind for my first night in Athens this September. Although it may fit for some travelers, it is definitely not a location I would book for myself.

My wife and I really enjoyed our 3 night stay in this hotel. It is very close to metro, but you can also walk to the main square (Syntagma) in about 20 mins if you like walking. There is a super nice bakery right next to the hotel as well :). You won˙t get much of a view from it, but it is clean and quiet. Breakfast is nice and fresh and the wifi is good. The only thing missing (if you are a fitness person) is some sort of a gym. We would definitely stay there again.

The beds are comfy, the wifi is good, the location is great it is close to a metro and to a pastry shop! I believe the highlight of this resort is the view from the rooftop garden. From there, you can see the Acropolis. It is even better at night! You can have drinks here and food. The staff here are friendly too! I also love their breakfast. Highly recommend this place.

Very nice hotel. It was clean, AC worked perfectly, the view of the Parthenon from the rooftop is truly amazing, the location is really good too, it is in the city center in the middle of everything. There is a bakery right under the hotel open 24 hours. we took an uber from the airport to the hotel it was 29 euro. and a taxi from the hotel to Piraeus port for 12 euro

Convenient location- close to metro, taxi stand etc. Staff is incredibly polite and helpful. Very nice rooftop restaurant with a view of the Acropolis in the distance. Nice breakfast. In room fridge. Rooms a bit small- and the shower is awkward- but this is an excellent value! Lobby and lounge areas are up to date- hallways and rooms on ly a bit dated- but it didn't bother me at all. This is a well maintained hotel. I would definetly stay here again

Best about this hotel is its rooftop bar and restaurant with a view of the Acropolis. Staff is extremely friendly and service minded. Rooms are small, but hey, who wants to stay in his hotel room in a town like Athens?

Wagalis was the name of our server. He was quiye friendly and made us feel very comfortable. He suggested us some unique drinks and food. Overall good experience. I will not rate the view so much as the area did not seem to have a pleasant scenario

This city hotel is the most appropriate to stay while your visit to Athens. The location is very central, you can visit all the historical exhibits. Rooms are very clean and comfortable, every time I've been in this hotel I feel like home. Staff is very helpful and polite.
