We just came back from our vacation to Athena. We spent one night in the hotel. I booked based on reviews here and absolutely the right thing to do!

If you are looking for a really nice hotel, don't stay here. But if you are like us and are just passing through Athens, $50 USD it is good! We actually upgraded our room when we got to the hotel b/c we wanted an Athens view. The room was a bit outdated but no bugs and was clean. It is... More

The quality/price ratio was very good. Staff very kind and helpful. The room a bit small but clean and tidy. We could see the Acropolis from the window. The breakfast was very good. We were in summer and didn't want to put on the air conditioning, but with the window open it was noisy around. Once the window closed (very... More

We had one night before we flew out of Greece in Athens and stayed here. There is a lot of graffiti in Athens and you get a tour of some of the interesting graffiti on some amazing buildings there as the hotel is in a neighborhood with a lot of graffiti- but it is also a neighborhood with a lot...

We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful, spacious and clean rooms. The breakfast was the best we had in Greece, with lots of options to choose from. Moreover you have a great view from the sun terrace. The owners are very friendly and willing to assist if you need any information or help. The neighborhood is not the greatest in... More

My friends and I stayed here on a weekend trip to Athens. The hotel was basic but exactly what we needed. Room was clean, beds were comfortable and bathroom was spacious and clean. Shower was excellent--hot water and great water pressure! It was about a 20 minute walk to the city center, which we did during the day and at... More

The only reason I do not give this hotel a five star rating is that it does not have the frills associated with this rating. It does have, however, awesome views of the Parthenon and Athens. It is also very quaint and has excellent "family like" service. Everyone is there to service and help. Around the hotel there are numerous... More

We stayed at Dryades Hotel for 5 nights on September, 2013. Pros: Cheap. Excellent location (we went walking everywhere). Clean. Good views of the city from the roof. English spoken. Kind and helpful staff. Good breakfast. Lively neighbourhood, with plenty of choices to eat nearby. Wi-fi everywhere (though not a very strong signal). Cons: Hard to arrive by car (the... More
