Everything that's been written about the location is true. But my partner and I found it easy to locate, convenient, great value, and the staff were very friendly. If you're getting there from the airport by metro (which is very easy), I think the best way of locating the hotel is to come out of the station via the 'Konstantinou'... More

Basic room, small but clean. People at desk were friendly and helpful. Same breakfast everyday, but a good variety. Okay, location is not the greatest. But we walked the 5-6 blocks to the Metro every day and evening with no threats whatsoever. People in the area seem unsavory, but they all ignored us. We came back as late as 10:00... More

Hotel was nice, Staff very friendly and knowledgeable on the area. Nothing seemed to be a problem for them. Free water and soft drinks 24/7. Free computer / internet access. Area not as bad as some are making out. Its fine up until 11pm or dark and then it would be advisable to get a taxi to and from hotel.... More

Hotel was based in, what I would call, a redlight district. Outside the hotel were prostitutes. People selling things out of bags, and the street was very dirty Once inside the hotel, staff were very friendly, room was very basic but clean. Hotel also had free WiFi, which is a big + for me. Location was pretty good, close to... More

OK, It's not in a great area. You don't intend to hang out in front of your hotel all day, do you? Nearest metro is OMONIA, NOT Syntagma Square. When coming from AP, take bus X95 (last stop is Syntagma Square - also the site of Greece's Parliament). Get out there, take the RED LINE metro (50 meters from bus... More

The room was ok, but just ok. Mosquitos come out of the bathrooms at night and there were blood stains on the walls where the last guest had killed a few. But as the hotel manager explained, unfortunately, the area around Amonia Square has gone very bad over the last 4 years. The area is now full of drug addicts,... More

Looking for a last minute limited-budget few nights accommodation in Athens, we came across this Best Western Zinon Hotel. We often stay in Best Western across the United States so we thought we can't go wrong with this one: A longer walk, but still a walking distance from the Acropolis and the center, located 2 blocks from a transportation hob...

Best Western in general is known for its standards. Zinon is not an exception: simple, comfortable, and clean. The best of all are people working there. They are genially caring, helpful, and kind. Their hospitality exceeded our expectations. Location has some pluses (Metro is close, walking distance to Plaka and Monasteraki) and quite a few minuses (neighborhood and its habitants,... More
