In brief- title covers pretty well. Worse- do NOT trust the receptionists, probably about nothing. I was sent late in the vening 5 blocks away to a tavern (which was mediocre, to be polite), while exactly 5 meters near the door (but in the other direction...) it was a quite nice looking one, by far more appropriate. I also asked... More

Mixed feelings about this hotel, it has quite a few positives but some of its quirks are definitely not for everyone. The area in which this hotel is located is quite good - close to the Megaros Moussikis metro station, 2 stops away from Syntagma Square with Acropolis being the stop after that. The area is pretty nice, it houses... More

If you want to be close to the museums in Athens this is the place. The hotel is right across the street from the Hilton Athens. The hotel is small not many rooms. Our room was clean and was a typical European hotel. The Staff was VERY helpful and nice. Breakfast buffet was typical, nothing special. But there was a... More

The best I can say about this place is it’s in a great location close to the metro stop. So, it’s convenient, not beautiful, but just know that going in. The breakfast buffet was fine with breads, eggs, ham, cheese, etc. about what you normally get at a Best Western. Rooms were nothing to write about and staff were not... More

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
