I have stayed her on a few occasions when I have been to Athens. Its location means its easy to get to from the airport and it is also to travel to other parts of Athens. The underground and overground and walking distance. Buses, Trams, Trolleys and taxis are also very easy to find outside the hotel. The hotel itself... More

We traveled as a group and stayed for 1 night at Balasca hotel. It is a basic 3 star hotel, clean, medium sized rooms, pretty well situated. Metro station is at a 5-7 min walk, bus station is right in front of it, city center and Acropolis is at a 45-60 min walk (so if you really want to, you... More

Very clean rooms and also modestly polite personel, near by to the central railway station, metro station and also... More

Good, affable staff. All is well. You can stay in the luggage.some distance away from the center. . Geras viešbutis, trūkumų nepastebėjome, gal vieta kiek toliau nuo centro. Mažoka daržovių su pusryčiais. Laikas 2014 liepos 15-18d.

Good location, 5-7 minutes from Metro Larissa. Food quality, very good. Prices very comfortable. Wifi works in rooms. Staff behavier very nice. For a budget conscious traveler this may be right for you. I would stay again if ever in Athens.

Stayed in a 4 person room. One of the beds was an extra bed that had dead springs. The real beds were OK. Room was very small and with 4 people staying it was cramped. Shady neighborhood. OK for a low budget traveller for a night or two.

We had booked this hotel due to it's location. Requested and booked a superior double room, but when we got to the room, there were two single beds. Nothing superior about it at all!!!! A quick trip back to reception resulted in being given the key to a room which had a double bed! Pros: close to shops. Free internet... More

Spent two nights at the Balasca Hotel. Traveling as a family, husb, wife and two daughters 10 & 12 yrs. There are no frills, the beds are hard. The breakfast was fabulous, making for the start two great days in Athens. The breakfast also increases the value of the stay at the Balasca. Very close to the Metro (just around... More

Chose this hotel because of other's reviews and were not disappointed. It is close to the Larissa Station and in minutes you can be anywhere in the city by using the metro, train or bus systems. We originally booked in for 2 nights not sure if it would meet our needs, and ended up making it our home base for... More

You get what you pay for, not a very nice hotel, in a dodge area. There was very bad smell of smoke in room. Perfect for tourist who just need place to sleep. Good location though and for the price you cant expect much more.
