Museum Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great location, good sized rooms and very reliable/friendly staff!!

The staff here were absolutely fantastic. Hotel is clean, accommodating, close to the metro, and great for the price overall. Definitely a great launching point to explore Athens!

It was a very good base for exploring Athens. Near the Historical Museum, Metro and local restaurants.

The hotel is pretty much a businessmans hotel. The rooms are small cramped and the shower is a joke literally 18 square and at 6'1 I couldn't even turn around. The staff was good and they did try to take care of us as best the could. The first gave me a disgustingly stinky room that had had smokers in it and was unbelievably smelly. They changed us which we appreciated. the hotel is in town next to the museum and close to reasonable restaurants so over all it was good for 1 night.

I had only planned on staying one night and then somewhere else. I decided to stay a second night. They found me a room on a different floor because a group was scheduled to stay there and they even moved my suitcases so I wouldn't have to while I was out seeing the sights.they even called me a cab at 3 o'clock in the morning even though the cabs we're not on call

The staff at the hotel were always friendly and helpful.(especially George at reception)Always willing to answer questions and assist in anyway that they could.My only complaint if it can be considered a complaint was breakfast. There was a variety offered each day.The complaint is that it was the same everyday,which after a week became rather boring. I think it wouldbe great to vary what is offered.For example one day pancakes or waffles or the eggs prepared a different way.Just something different and not the same food for a week.I know most people probably don't stay a week and the food would not be an issue.I had read reviews before going and the main complaint seemed to be the location of the hotel. For the price and service I have no complaints reguarding the location. My granddaughter and I went out in the area and never felt endangered in anyway.I love the Greek people who are so warm and friendly!!

We primarily visited the museum and some surrounding area. There are small, non touristy shopping areas and restaurants nearby. BUT this is not the best area. Several areas of drug activity in the nearby park.

Nice Hotel with a Wonderfull Stuff, i stayed there twice with my husband during our travels in Greece. The location is a little challenging, but its safe and only a short walk, like 5 min. to the metro, which is great. Great price for this hotel.

We have no complaints about the hotel itself...but it is behind the Architectural Museum (drug area)...we had one of our suitcases stolen as we off loaded the bus in front of the museum....Mr. Simeonoglou at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful...directing us to police station, restaurant, etc. One cabbie way overcharged us and he was upset about that. If you stay, have taxi service so you aren't walking the neighborhood and you will be fine.

This hotel has great potential. The price is okay, the location is not bad (quiet, but still not far from the main areas of interest, good transportation), it has free fruit juice 24/7, free wifi, staff was friendly but the room itself was really not up to my expectations. It was small, dark, the shower was "microsocopic", the air conditioning could not be adjusted, so it was either too hot or cold. Other rooms may be better though, but I was unable to negotiate an upgrade.

Although the area initially looked a little sketchy, it turned out to be all right. Unfortunately, the fold out cot was very uncomfortable. The girls had to move the mattress to the floor. The hotel staff was very helpful and accommodating.

Wonderful find, at a great price. Super clean and very up to date. Good sized room, lovely bathroom and they provide a wonderful buffet breakfast.

good for museum, away from the city
