My brothers and I just left Athens. I would definitely recommend this place. To anyone. Great staff, great service, very clean. Breakfast was excellent. Location was perfect. You can't beat that rooftop view of the Acropolis!!!

This hotel has a wonderful location in the center of Athens. It has a fantastic view of the Acropolis. The hotel was having some sort of problem the first night we stayed there and we woke up to an awful sewage smell, so bad we had to move in the middle of the night. Also, the wifi was spotty at...

Simple, no frills and everything you need in a modern, sleek room with an excellent view! Looking down on to minastiraki square and out on to the acropolis (you can even see this from a window in the shower!!). MUST check out the roof top bar at night which also serves excellent food. Loved: view, room, service, rooftop bar and... More

This hotel has one of the best bars and views in the city. I was here working and not on a vacation trip but it gave me a good opportunity to get a flavour of Athens. The rooms are modern and well equipped and not quiet as I was facing the square but most things stop around midnight. Internet was... More

I recently stayed at A for Athens with my husband and two other couples for two nights. We were thrilled with the location - right in the heart of the bustling city center, across the street from a fantastic market, and within walking distance to the Acropolis. The staff was friendly and helpful, the bed was very comfortable, and the... More

I'm not sure why this hotel is listed under B&Bs and Inns as I wouldn't call it either, but, regardless enjoyed our stay here. Can't beat the location - close to everything and right next to the subway line - very easy to connect to and from the airport. We had an Acropolis view room (and very big for Europe)... More

As you enter the hotel, a receptionist with a great smile welcomes you. There is a special elevator for hotel guests, since the top floor bar/restaurant attracts many other tourists. Rooms are big enough for everybody. The hotel is in the center of Athens. You can go wherever you want using the subway line just next to the hotel

I had made reservations at another hotel but went with A for Athens because of a review I read on WSJ. I am very glad I made the switch. The location - right on Monastiraki Square which some guidebooks call Souvlaki Row because of the excellent and affordable souvlakis, short walk to the ancient Agora and all the pretty restaurants...

I spent only a night in Athens and unfortunately I did not have a chance to enjoy their breakfast due to an early flight. This place has an amazing view over the acropolis, I had a room overlooking it and it was just spectacular. The bar on the top floor is a great venue for cocktails and drinks. The metro... More
