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

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!
