We loved staying at A for Athens. For the price, it is unbeatable. The metro will pick you up right by port and literally drop you off on the Monastiraki Square (a minute walk to A for Athens). You go to the same metro station (a minute walk away) and it will take you to the airport. I would highly... More

My parents and I came to Athens for just 1 night (need to fly out tomorrow morning at 8am). Had a wonderful vacation in Ikaria. The moment we stepped into this hotel, we regret we spend a vacation in Greece. The front desk is very rude. Elevator is super tiny and inconvenient to enter the corridor to the rooms. Triple...

This was our first hotel that we stayed at in Greece. Firstly, the location is great as it's close to everything. Secondly, the staff's kindness and friendliness as well as the room facilities and cleanness was just the way it should! The breakfast offered is very nice and has a good selection. The rooms are cleaned every single day, new... More

A for Athens is the perfect choice for exploring central Athens, perfectly centrally located just off the Monastiraki square, it's a great base from which basically walk to a lot of Athen's major attractions, bars and restaurants. Also, the subway for both the airport and Piraeus is 30 seconds away from the hotel lobby. Personnel could not be more kind... More

The only reason it's not 5 stars for me is that, the curtains in our room, 44, were very thin, and the light shined through, so me and my girlfriend didn't sleep as well, maybe if not putting up thicker curtains, offering some sleeping masks would do the trick. Also, there was no minibar inside the room. Other than that,... More

I liked this hotel because of the location, its simplicity and the amazing views from the rooftop terrace and breakfast room. The reception were really helpful too and with the proximity to the metro, the square, Plaka and the flea market all on the doorstep you can't go wrong for a short stay in Athens. Pros: rooftop terrace, views, simple,... More

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
