The hotel is bad, WiFi was terrible, air conditioning did not work at all, small and outdated WC, there is no isolation between rooms and it is very noisy. The staff is nice, the location is great. And that's all... For this price there are more Pleasant choices. Just look around.

The Arethusa hotel is in a great location at the center of Athens - close to public transport and the shops. As for the hotel, I think it should upgrade its services and renovate its rooms....I stayed with my parents last week for a few days. From the moment we entered the room, we noticed that the fridge didn't work... More

I stayed here twice, on either end of a month long stay in Greece. And both times I had no complaints about the hotel. Yes, it is simple and not luxury, but I always found it clean and accommodating. The front staff were very nice, and on more than one occasion I had the elevator door opened for me by... More

The Arethusa hotel is in a great location for sightseeing - close to public transport and the hop-on-hop-off bus which we used. As for the hotel, I think 'dated' is a good word. It could do with a revamp and an upgrade to the amenities and new blankets that aren't stained. One of the two locks on the door didn't... More

The Arethusa is an old-fashioned but clean hotel with polite, helpful staff and a surprisingly good café bar/restaurant attached. Comfortable bed and pillow! Very convenient for metro, buses and trams and for shopping. As a woman travelling alone I felt very safe here even though it was very close to Syntagma Square and there were a lot of armed police...

We stayed with my daughter for one night in this hotel in June 2013 and I can recommend it. Great location to visit Acropolis and other most popular touristic places. Metro station is very near and simply to find. Bus stop for touristic bus with trip on Athens and port Piraeus is exactly few meters from hotel. Great place to... More

Check that everything works as soon as you get in the room... doors, windows, plugs, WC, taps, shower, the works. If it all works, you hit the jackpot. The location was excellent for us. Near the airport bus terminal , shopping, restaurants, cafes etc.
