My wife and I stayed at this hotel in Athens for two nights. The staff was very kind and helpful - a simple breakfast was served every morning. The location is definitely topnotch and is close to many cafes. We don't spend a lot of time hanging out in hotels, so if you're just looking for a place to crash... More

Clean room. Small bathroom. Nice reception guys. Great location, in the center of Athens . The only problem was that sometimes we couldn't take long hot showers. Good heating and great atmosphere. I recommend this hotel.

If you are a budget traveller and dont want to spend much on your stay then Cecil hotel is the best option. We took a bus from airport which dropped us at Syntagma Square. You can take a metro ride also from airport to Monastiraki Metro station which is hardly 2-3 minutes walk from Cecil hotel. The place is most... More

Before I had booked the htel I saw that they have room with the view to the Acropolis, they gave us this room, but the room was on top of the roof, you need the... More

First off, the location of this hotel is great! You can take the metro straight from the airport to Monastiraki, and then exit right onto Athinas street and then it's just a 2-3 block walk to the hotel. It's a pretty busy area so it always felt very safe. It did get a bit loud on Saturday night when the... More

We booked Hotel Cecil for a few nights last month. I wouldn't say that we were clueless about the quality and service (from other reviews), but it isn't as bad as some of them make it out to be. If you want to be close to most of the major landmarks in Athens and the lively Plaka area, this is... More

Hotel is over rated n the staff is not friendly. Did not stay much in the hotel. Spend most of my time out doing shopping, drinking. Quite a lot of good area to go in of staying in the boring hotel doing nothing
