Polis Grand Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
My husband stayed 3 nights at the Polis Grand. The rooms were clean and had everything you needed. Breakfast was included and had a wide variety of choices. Most importantly, the staff spoke English and were most accommodating. One morning we left early for a tour and thought we would miss breakfast but the staff packed us a boxed breakfast. We went to Santorini for three nights and when we returned, the clerk remembered is and knew he had our passports and credit card on file. The clerks graciously called taxis for us on several occasions. Loved the service, food, and location!
The people spoke English and was very helpful on any questions one may have, they have drinks and food there. Nice place to stay very comfortable. Free breakfast every morning, they make sure your first meal of the day is healthy.
The room was very well kept and very spacious. The reception area rather small but this is no problem. The breakfast area is quite modern. The breakfast was very good with a lot of choices to choose from. Don't miss it!!!! The location of the hotel is very convinient (200m from Omonia square and metro station). 10 minutes walk to Monastiraki and Syntagma squares. I would definetely stay here again.
I booked the hotel along with the plane tickets, for 2 nights, with breakfast, and it turned out to be a very good decision. Good location, very close to acropolis and center of Athens. Made my first visit to Greece a very good experience. I booked im winter, but the heating was good, btakfast was good (a very nice touch is the inclusion of greek deserts in the variety of options-greek yogurt homemade desert is just amazing). Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. I recommend it to anyone. And unlike the bad idea of Omonia Square being a bad area, we had no problem during our stay. Only downside is that room could be looking a bit better for a 4 stars hotel, but all in all, great experience.
I stayed at Polis Grand for 6 nights with my big group of students on a trip. We all loved the place. The gentlemen at the front desk were awesome. They were always helpful and ready with advice and solutions to any problems. The breakfast buffet was more than enough with tasty items that cater to different needs. It is a 15-minute walk to downtown Athens from the hotel, which I didn’t mind as I love walking. However, there’s a subway station 3 minutes away to help you go anywhere you want. Housekeeping and restaurant staff are courteous and friendly. Rooms are small. We booked triple rooms which wasn’t a good idea. Having 3 adults in the room at the same time made it overcrowded especially after having a lot of shopping bags in addition to the luggage that had not enough space to keep. Go for the rooms with balconies. They are bright and cheerful. Overall, it was a positive experience. Thank you, Polis Grand.
This place was great we were close to alot of places. The street are quite at night which was great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The roof top restaurant has amazing views to the acropolis at night it’s perfect for dinner .
I've been there for three nights. It's a nice walk to Plaka, mostly on a pedestrian street. The staff was really nice, very welcoming and willing to help. Garage one block away. The breakfast was the best on my 20 days in Greece. You can make your own fresh orange juice on a machine and traditional greek coffee made on 'hot sand'. Everything was so delicious: salad, yogurt, feta cheese, breads. If you book on their website you receive complimentary free parking.
Booked a week on this hotel after reading reviews here and on booking.com.Have to say i haven't felt like staying in a 4 star hotel.Staff was extremly friendly but this was the only thing i would rate high.The standard room i had was extremly small and the bathroom was a nightmare even for a person like me who is not claustrofobic.Believe me i'm not a fat person but had issues to fit in the shower tub.The central heating was not working-to heat the room you had to use the AC.The breakfast was ok-good but nothing really tasty.Cofee was terible and the juice the same - a mix of sugar and colorants.There was a possibility to drink fresh orange juice but you had to squeeze the oranges your self .Unfortunatly the mashine was always busy...so no juice for me.
Everything was good about accomadation, room was okay and breakfast was sufficient. However, last day we forgot to flight time and needed to fast transfer to airport. When I asked for taxi price to reception, they said higher than determined price. I guess this greedyness is not good for a 4 star hotel.
The Polis was a pleasure to stay in. The staff was especially friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfast buffet and the all-day cafe plus the rooftop restaurant for dinner were great to have right there. It was also well-located close to the metro as well as within walking distance to the major sites. I would definitely stay there again when I go back to Athens.
