This cozy hotel in Athens center is perfect for the budget traveler. My only complaint would be that noise from the hall carries into the rooms. It is the perfect location and the staff is amazingly helpful with impressive English. The breakfast is delicious and the rooms very clean and lovely. If you're not used to European baths it can...

Enjoyed the stay at the Hotel Achilleas. Good location in Athens, good breakfast each morning and lots of space in the hotel room (for Europe). Front staff helped with directions and arranging taxis/ shuttles. Only negative is the room smelled like cigarette smoke.

The customer service was absolutely terrible. Soon as I entered the hotel I approached the desk and said I would like to check in. The person behind the desk looked at me and said 'that's good'. After a long pause I said I need to check in, to which he replied 'that's nice' again just looking at me. 15 seconds... More

We stayed here twice during our travels through Europe in September 2015. Once at the beginning of our trip and again at the end of September. On our first visit we stayed in a smallish room with a very out-dated bathroom. But our second stay we were fortunate to be given a bigger room with a nicer bathroom and private... More

The room was clean and the noise of the street was not heard, it was bery quiet. The breakfasts were great with a large variety and the staff were always helpful, kind and available to answer all of our question and help with directions!

Great location, we stayed there 9 years ago as a family and I returned this September. It looked like it has been recently painted and was nice to return to. Would recommend highly! Very good breakfast and clean rooms. Quiet hotel in a busy city.

Really nice staff and very friendly, a few blocks from everything. You can walk to the first stop of the Hop on Hop off. The hotel is well appointed in an old building but the rooms were clean and nice, the service was done every day. Breakfast in the am was also well stocked and enough to get you going.... More

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.
