the Byron Hotel is right in the middle of the Athens Plaka and our balcony (which was huge) had a fantastic view of the Acropolis....wow!!!!!! The room was a great size and whilst not the most comfortable beds the linen and pillows were fresh and comfortable. We were on the third floor which I found OK - I used the... More

I chose this little hotel for its romantic name and excellent location at the foot of the Acropolis, in Plaka district,. It is close to the new Acropolis Museum, and picturesque Anafiotika area - tavernas, souvenir and tourists shops & the Choragic Monument of Lycecrates. Rooms furnished in wood - country style, but beds rathe hard. Our room had a... More

The plus sides of Hotel Byron are that it is very cheap and in just about the most amazing location. It is so central and so close to the Acropolis (about a 1 minute walk to the ticket office entrance). Also the room we were given was fairly spacious which is useful when travelling. Unfortunately we found our room to... More

Positives: location to all major sites in Athens for a good price. Also, a great view of the Acropolis from the roof of the hotel. Negatives: The staff is not particularly helpful or friendly and the rooms could definitely be updated and made more comfortable. The breakfast is extremely limited as well. I would only stay here for the convenience... More

My husband and I, supposedly, made a romantic escape to Athens for 3 days. Certainly, we found one of the staff (a big middle age man) with a rude way to treat the guests. He gave us the key of the room number 1. Beside and around were the room number 2 and some WC. The way to walk to... More

Good - Amazing location for visiting historic sites, shopping, eating, and getting rental cars - Friendly staff Bad - Bathrooms smelled like urine (stayed in 2 different rooms) - Beds were rock hard - One of the "showers" had no curtain - Really expensive for what you get - Reserved a double room with a double bed, but they only...

This centrally located hotel was a good spot to discover the sites of Athens. Walking distance to Acropolis, Plaka area, and pick up point for Red Bus tour. Close to metro station. Lots of restaurants close by. Room was basic but clean. Bathroom adequate. Host and hostess were very friendly and offered good information. For the price good value for... More

Location perfect. Owner super nice. Bathrooms smelled, shower tiny (if you are above 180 cm tall and wider than 60 cm it won't fit you). Beds and pillows are hard and old. Rooms are too small. Breakfast is a cup of coffee with one piece of toast and butter. For young travelers who just need a place to crash, it... More

Booked online. It was quite cheap for 3 nights; breakfast was indicated as continental and I was not expecting anything complicated from what I had read. But as it was included in the price, it seemed reasonable. My room was at the ground floor. Spartan but clean and I did have a good internet connection which was fine with me.... More
