The perfect location in the center of Athens with all facilities around you. Clean rooms, very good breakfast and friendly staff. Compared with what you pay I believe that Arethusa Hotel is an excellent choice. Will definitely be my first choice for next trip in Athens.

Having read other travellers' review I decided to book a room well away from the street to minimise noise, 7th floor I think. Big mistake. The room was well below standard with awful outlook on opposite windows, minimal comforts and very drab and tired looking. The biggest problem at this hotel was the lack of any baggage handling assistance, a... More

Everything here was "adequate". The rooms were clean and did have a small refrigerator but otherwise were "bare bones". It's decent enough if you just need a place to sleep and it is very convenient. (You can walk there from the train station and it is only a short walk to Monastraki square and the Flea Market.) The included breakfast... More

Great location in the centre of old town short walk from all attractions, trams, buses and metro. Hotel itself is ok. What you would expect from a 3 star. Clean will no thrills. Breakfast fine, shower hot bed clean and comfortable. Criticism - has a view to die for on roof terrace but it's not being used, tables and chairs... More

This 9 story hotel is in the heart of the tourist area, Plaka. The top floor has a beautiful view of the Acropolis lit up at night in the garden lounge. If the door is locked you can ask for the key. The rooms have excellent WiFi and are clean and spacious with comfortable beds and bedding. Most rooms have... More

Solo traveler, 1st time in Athens, thinking the easiest way to get to and from the airport, Hotel Arethousa was the answer. It's located near the Syntagma metro, 5 min walk to the bus shuttle going to and from the airport and 10 min walk to Plaka. The hotel was clean and very accessible, near McDonald's and lots of restaurants... More

We received a warm welcome and were given a room on the 8th floor with a view of the Acropolis. The room was nearly furnished with a very comfortable bed. (And I am REALLY fussy.

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.
