A Best Western Smartbox voucher led us to a two night stay in this hotel. The location within Athens was ok (3 metro stops from Monastiraki). The hotel itself is located between a strip club and a starbucks, which I didn't find very intriguing from the beginning. Our room had a bad smell (like it hadn't been used or cleaned... More

We booked this hotel blind needing an overnight in Athens on the way back from the Pelopponese. Our main criteria was that it was close to a metro station on the direct line to the airport and the Ilisia did not disappoint. Situated behind one of Athen's premium hotels, The Hilton, it's a 5 minute walk to Evangelismos metro. It's... More

Small rooms, poor breakfast... Very good service, clean hotel, very close to the centre. Not very strong wi - fi in our room but it was free unlike other hotels! I'm not sure if I will revisit the hotel, but it's not bad for few days in Athens.

Really nothing bad to comment, an excellent choice. Very conveniently situated at the center of the city, near to two subway stations and to Kolonaki and Likavittos. Breakfast is average but sufficient. Wi-fi signal isstrong to all rooms, unlike other hotels, even more expensive than this.

After a short stay of two night I can say the Hotel is nice and well equipped, clean and no noise at all inside the rooms if you close the big and strong windows, nothing "super" but it is ok for business and cheap enough for tourists visiting Athens. Now they have WiFi in all the rooms. The staff is... More

Ideally situated, comfortable , clean , polite staff and very well priced. We stayed for 5 nights and will stay there again!!! It's next to 2 metro stations, short walk to the airport bus and a 15 min walk to Syntagma and all the city sights. It is outside the 'demonstration ring' which blocks off Syntagma every time there is... More

I stayed here for a couple of days in 2011 on a business trip. A colleague of mine was also staying at the same hotel. The rooms were dingy without proper ventilation. The bathrooms were not clean and the bed linen was dirty too. In fact, there were cockroaches in my colleague's room. When he complained, he was asked to... More

The hotel has whatever I expect from a simple hotel for a 3-4 days business or family trip. Without excessive amenities or luxury, it simply delivers what it promises, and what I usually expect from a 3-star hotel. Relatively comfortable and quite rooms. Shampoo, body and hand soap in dispenser. Two towels per person. The safety box is rather small... More

In short:I CAN'T understand many people who complain about various silly situations which are easily corrected by the hotel staff. For instance: How can somebody be cold in a room with air condition? The hotel is situated in a nice area, many good museums are in walking distance. Buses, Metro and Taxis are 2 minutes from the hotel available .... More
