This hotel might come into the "cheap & cheerful" category, except the staff weren't particularly cheerful. Smallish room, with a big balcony, on the 6th floor, gave us some interesting views. We could even see the Acropolis, in the distance, on the second morning. There is a bar, which stays open late, but seems a bit limited in what it... More

We only stayed for 2 nights at Xenophon, but it was worth the money we paid. Of course, we are not demanding, a good bed and hot water is all we needed. The location of the hotel was very convenient, as we were able to walk to most of the tourist attractions in Athens.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was not to big, but had a very big balcony (6th floor). Two separate beds (very hard matrasses), tv in the room, internet wifi (everything that had to do with porn is blocked) with a good connection, breakfast very simple without any taste but enough not to be hungry. At the entrence... More

Your acquaintance with this hotel will start with a long steep staircase with no one to help with your luggage. There is really no staff available for this task. We spend there two nights each in different room, and while I was away for 1 day, my girlfriend had to move 2 large bags by herself (one by one) and... More

This hotel offers a large number of rooms, most of which are ether not in use or under refurbishment. The rooms are very small and in need of a level of tender loving care. Refurbished for the Olympic games it apears that not much has been done since. Very retro. Breakfast is a fixed menu consisting of coffee, juice, cheese... More

By staying in Xenophon you get a real experience of modern Greece's mess. Don 't get me wrong. It is an adequate hotel to stay if you are in a budget. My room was spacious and cheap. There is a metro connection nearby. The staff were generally nice. However,... 1. People were smoking in public spaces (reception, lobby, etc.) 2.... More

I have used this hotel several times when passing through and looking to keep costs down. It is a no-frills establishment and this is reflected in the price. As previous posts say, it could do with interior decoration, but I have always found the bathrooms OK, and on occasions I've had a decent-sized balcony for no extra price. The staff... More

It is located in a walking distance of 7 minutes from the Kato Patisia station (green line, subway). So that is OK, but there are more convenient located hotels in Athens, especially if this is your first time in Athens. The price is nice and the hotel is a typical city hotel. I have been offered several rooms at my... More
