My father and I stayed in Achilleas for two nights in the peak of summer tourist season. As yearly travelers to Greece, we have stayed in dozens of other Athens hotels in the past, and I am happy to report that Achilleas stood out as an exceptionally convenient location, off the main drags of traffic and congestion near Syntagma Square,...

Perfect location. Terrible hotel. Dingy room , felt dirty and dated. Way too small for a family of 4. The elevator is a nightmare , especially with luggage. We had to go up one at a time. Exhausting after 22 hours of flight and travel. The wifi is non existent , The location is central. Walking distance from syntagma and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Achilleas Hotel. The location was perfect, close to main shopping strip and close to The Acropolis. The room was comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly and attentive.

A hotel perfectly situated at the very center of the city. Although we were attending a conference in Pireaus we preferred to stay in Athens and our choice was very much justified. The hotel is very near to the Syntagma and Monastiraki metro stations. The room was comfortable for its value, nothing fancy but decent and clean. Very friendly staff... More

This hotel is located in the city center. It is walking distance to bars/restaurants/shops. For the value it is worth it if you don't plan on spending much time in the room. They staff was nice and the complimentary breakfast was very good. Would stay again.

This is a perfectly good hotel in a good location, just outside the Plaka, just north of the Ermou street mall. Nothing super-excellent, but a good solid hotel. Beware there is NO parking if that is an issue, and very challenging to get to in a rental car. Rooms were clean and quiet, staff was very helpful, breakfast was serviceable.

Had to book the Achilleas on very short notice when my prior reservation fell through. Great location for those focusing their visit on the Plaka neighborhood. Very enjoyable breakfast buffet and very pleasant staff!

Stayed here while on business trip, would not for pleasure. Although spacious room, single bed not very comfortable, sad view of small courtyard, impractical sort of half bathtub so normal showering not possible. Rather noisy if you are sensitive to that. Check in/check out very rapid, not a bad breakfast. Would have paid less than I did for this hotel.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
