Easily locate the hotel which is at the city centre. Very nice and reasonable breakfast varieties. Nice receptionist. Helpful in answering all queries about the city and the surroundings. Nice elevator.

I stayed at this hotel in April 2013. It is very centrally located and only a short walk away from the main square. The rooms are comfortable and clean with an excellent breakfast included in the price. The booking office was extremely helpful before I arrived as I had asked for some information on how to get there from the... More

My first trip with friends to Athens Greece, was absolutely remarkable. It happened that a friend with me lost her passport, a quick mental reaction is to go down to the Arethusa reception and found this woman named Doreta, who assisted me to find the number of the Phil. embassy. from there on, i found that the warmth welcome and...

This was the second time I stayed at this hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable, excellent full breakfast included with the price. The rates are reasonable and you are located in the heart of Athens - by Syntagma square. Walking distance to the Acropolis and the Plaka (must see shopping)!

This hotel had been booked for us by our travel agent , apart from the convenient location at Syntagma square and a view of the acropolis from the terrace , there is nothing good about this hotel to mention about . A pretty bad experience staying there for three days .

As a matter of fact, I shall say I have never been a guest at Arethusa Hotel. But, I have passed in front of it many, many times and always imagined how convenient it would be to stay there! It is near and at walking distances of almost all "must sees" in historical Athens: the "Acropolis" and its new "Acropolis... 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.
