I would recommend this hotel only for its location as its in the city's shopping center Ermou Street and next to all puplic transport (taxis, buses, subway trains). The breakfast is minimal and pretty bad with rotten fresh fruits and sour canned fruits, sticky sausages and eggs that stay on the breakfast table until consumed. Our room or the room... More

This hotel is ideally located, 1 min from Syntagma square (where all the major bus and tram lines to the airport or Piraeus start from, not to mention the underground), 3 from the touristy/bustling area of Plaka and just around the corner from the pedestrian Ermou street. The breakfast buffet is well stocked, providing an array of pastries, fruit salads,... More

We highly recommend this hotel for several reasons: - the staff is extremely helpful and friendly - our room (804) clean, comfortable and offered an amazing view on the Acropolis - the breakfast buffet is excellent - located nearby several archaeological sites, Syntagma Square, a number of good restaurants and the supermarket ‘Bazaar’ - easy transfer by Express Bus (X95)...

We've stayed at this Hotel a couple of times now and although the rooms are a bit basic the hotel is in a great location just down the road from Plaka and Syntagma Sq., has a very good breakfast and helpful staff.

We stayed in Arethousa hotel for one night in Athens and our experience was great. It is in the center of Athens. 5 mn walk to Plaka and 20 mn to Acropolis. Defenitly it is recommended for people who needs hotel rooms for sleeping and having shower. Their breakfast is well served.

Great location, good value. In the city center, next to Syntagma square, metro station. You can go from hotel on foot to Acropolis and other must see places in Athens. Next to Plaka, Monastiraki square.

The location couldnt be better. The bus stop from the airport is 1 min walk so is the syntagma square. You can go to most must see places in Athens by foot from the hotel which is great. The room we stayed in is one of the renovated ones. We couldnt stay for breakfast and they arranged for a tray... More

The location of this hotel is what makes it great, steps away from the metro stop from the airport. We arrived at 10:30am, and were checking out the next morning at 5am. When the front desk found this out, they called upstairs and kept breakfast open for us so that we could have our breakfast the day we arrived, even... More

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

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.
