The hotel is centrally located near the "Sintagma" Square where there is the Greek Parliament (5 min.). However, it is well soundproofed and street noise is very low, you can sleep well! In our opinion, the breakfast was excellent. The hotel is surrounded by tall buildings, so mentally, drawing curtains is mandatory. But if this does not bother you, the... More

The best thing about Arethusa is it's location. Set in the center of Syntagma Square, it provides convenient access to most local markets and cafes. Walking around is an experience by itself to get the best of Athens. The rooms are small and the view is not great, but it is clean and sufficient (unless you want to stay in... More

Location wise, Arethusa is perfect. Not far from Syntagma, and a short (5min) walk from Plaka and Monastiriki. I managed to get my room at a pre-paid rate, and I'm glad I did as I don't feel it warrants the higher prices that can be charged. I was lucky enough to have a double bed - not a given when... More

As everyone the most important thing about the hotel is its location. Great Location! Close to EVERYTHING! Shopping, public transportation, Syntagma Square, museum and historical locations i.e. Acropolis. We pretty much ended up walking everywhere. Breakfast, was not that great but hey it was free. Hotel overall was good, clean and safe. Wifi always worked. I found Athens to be... 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.
