I have stayed at the hotel for 5yrs straight with an average of 25 teenagers from the U.S..The hotel is very clean and the service people just SUPER and accomadating. Although I speak Greek my students do not but they were always greeted with a smile. The location is just perfect. especially when you have a large group of students.... 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)! What I really liked was the hotel was booked... More

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

This hotel is located in no more than 3 min. walk from Syntagma square-so that is perfect. The room is excellent-spacious with lots of closets, big nice bathroom and clean. The staff is kind and willing to help. With the price of the room you get the breakfast which is a good thing, but the breakfast itself is no more... More

I stayed at the Arethusa on 2 different occasions. The first one, in room 309, there was a noise, I think from a nearby air conditioning equipment or something, which was, though not loud, permanent, and in the second room, n° 702, the bathroom was uncomfortably small. But, otherwise, I liked this hotel very much. Everything is spotless, with brand... More
