The only good thing to say about this hotel is that it is close to pretty much everything. Other than that, it was nothing good here. The personnel barely seemed to notice us. The breakfast was OK, but there were no signs for what anything was, and as being allergic to a lot of things it was hard to know... More

At the Arethusa, you get way you pay for. And that is not much. The positives: the cost (65 euros for one night in April 2015). The location: just off Syntagma square, a short walk to the Plaka, Kolonnaki, and the rest of central Athens. The front desk staff: helpful. Everything else is mediocre to substandard. The room was small,... More

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...

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.
