The hotel was ok. Plus: The 8th floor room has a very nice view with Acropolis which was amazing by nights. Very clean room, nice hotel people. Minus: The breakfast got not so much variety, around 5-6 food kinds and in 10 days it got the same products every morning. But near there are a lot of fast foods or... More

The hotel is very centrally located - close to Syntagma Square and Monastiraki, with many restaurants and shops in the surrounding areas. Additionally, the acropolis is really only a 20 minute walk away. However, the rooms are painfully small and the bathrooms are even smaller. Breakfast was rather pathetic and the front desk staff were not too friendly. Like many... More

There are many hotels in Athens, but the Arethusa is brilliantly located for arrivals and departures. It is close both to the airport bus and to the Metro as well as being a block from Constitution Square. I think it is a hidden gem.

I have stayed in this hotel on several occasions. It is a fine, well-located hotel in Athens. The management is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. Plenty of light and able to open windows to let in the air. I always look forward to staying at this hotel.

I stayed in Arethusa Hotel for three night on February of 2014. The location is absolutely excellent! Only 2 minutes from the main metro station and the Syntagma square, next to the famous Ermou str (shopping) and very close to the Acropolis and the Acropolis museum. The room has mostly old(-fashioned) furniture and the building seems quite old but it... More

Great basic hotel. Lovely reception staff. The breakfast was basic, but there was enough of a selection to please most tastes and a good way to fill yourself up to mid afternoon if you wanted to save a little money. The roof top balcony is currently under refurbishment (which I found to my cost due to drilling one morning). That... More

A very good value hotel in the heart of Athens, next to Syntagma square. Rooms size was big but the bathroom was a bit too small. The hotel has a nice terrace with a great view of the Acropolis. The breakfast was very good with friendly staff. Good value and location overall.

Cockroach and hair in the bathroom, fly between ham slices in breakfast. No internet on the fifth floor The only good thing about this hotel, is the location and a very polite receptionist(don't remember her name)

Very basic, broadband doesn't work, rude and unhelpful reception, furniture tatty, room layout terrible. Had a very forgettable experience here and left 2 days early. No refund given. Go to Pan Hotel across the street. Much easier at little extra cost.
