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.

It was a last minute booking with the recommendation from a travel expert. I totally agreed with his recommendation. It is situated at a very strategic location for train, airport shuttle, local tour pick-up point, shopping and restaurants. Well kept hotel with big rooms , comfortable bed but sometime can be noisy at night so ask for room that is... More

This is a great location / quiet/ and good price. Negative - the parking space they recommend in the website is at least 1/2 mile away so just stick with the one next door. Also the free breakfast is below average. Could not really eat anything. Opted for one of the coffee places nearby for great coffee. But it was... More

I took my first trip to Greece and The Achilleas Hotel was the place I came to first. The booking was made very last minute, after having changed hotels pre-arrival based on proximity to the center of Athens. The staff was accommodating and the rooms reasonably priced. Syntagma is a great place to be in, located with easy walks to... More

The location is just below the main square, Syntagma. It is also walking distance to Acropolis. There is free WiFi and the breakfast has a good selection to suit every taste. The down sides are: the rooms are spacious but with only one radiator, so it was cold around the New Year. The air conditioner didn't heat, so that didn't... More

The hotel is in the centre of Athens. The hotel is clean and the room is spacious enough. The bathroom is small but sufficient. Sometimes a bit noise from inside or outside. Breakfast is greek with enough choice. Staff is friendly but housekeeping unfortunately unreliable. I left accidentally two skirts hanging in the closet; mailed the hotel already from the... More

The location was great, the room was extremely spacious close to plenty of shops and great restaurants as well as the Acropolis however even in the winter the room was at 28 degrees Celsius. Very warm, to the point of extremely stuffy and uncomfortable to sleep. We advised the front desk and they advised heater would turn off at 11:00... 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.
