Loved the location but is a little tired. Handy to many attraction. The hop on off bus, syntagma square & the plaza. Also near to station, if your game, is doable. Wouldn't bother with the priieus hop on off bus. Very friendly people. Food is wonderful. Couldn't get a better location.

Writing this several hotels later (we started our trip at the Arethusa), our recollection of this hotel is more complimentary. It's a functional, modern place, probably suited as much to a guest on a business trip as it is to tourists. The bedroom was comfortable with twin beds, adequate desk/wardrobe space and a tv. Six floors up, and we heard... More

This no frills hotel is in an excellent location with easy access to the bus, train, restaurants, Plaka and most historical sites. The room was clean and spacious with all the mod cons and the staff pleasant. The breakfast was really awful with the fried eggs like rubber and the little sausages hard. This was the only hot food available.... More

Clean and tidy rooms! Excellent breakfast! Perfect location! The hotel was in the centre of Athens, near the metro station and very close to any kind of shops! Great view (Akropolis)! Very helpful staff! We really enjoyed our stay!

The location is optimal (just next to Syntagma square). But I'm afraid that's about it when it comes to positives. The room was clean, but seriously old and worn-out - to the point the door would not lock because it was misaligned. The noise levels were unacceptable (i.e. both from the street as well from within the hotel). The staff... More

Good location, crummy property. Whole place stinks of cigarettes. An elevator so tiny that when two men get in, one gets pregnant. Our room had a terribly noisy air conditioner, the blower bearing being shot. I complained several times. Did they fix the motor? Of course not -- they stuck a rag between the motor and the housing to dampen... More

Arethusa hotel at syntagma square is very well located. Walking distance from most of the important sites in Athens. Monastriaki square, plaka are just a five minute walk. The hotel has a good view of the Parthenon from its rooftop. The hotel also provides good wholesome breakfast. The downside is it has no coffee or tea maker in the room... More

Booked the hotel through Hotwire. Finally arrived after a late plane ride and long bus to find out that the entire hotel is full and they didn't realize we had booked a room weeks ago! However, they were very good about quickly finding us a different (4 star!) hotel at no extra cost. They handled the situation professionally.

The hotel is very well located a stone's throw away from Syntagma, nevertheless quiet. The room was reasonably sized, for the price, Reception friendly and efficient and it's difficult to find anything negative to write about. Just that the elevators were tiny and the breakfast a bit boring. And no Wi-fi in the rooms.

Arrived for a overnight transit from the Greek Islands to Istanbul, we had the afternoon and the next morning to see some of Athens. The hotel is in a good location near Synmagna square so close to the met and sites. The hotel it self is very old and outdated in many ways, foyer and rooms have seen better days.... 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.
