This hotel represents exceptional value and a perfect location as long as you are prepared to make a few sacrifices. The rooms are basic but clean. The showers are passable if a little testing and smoking is allowed in the building so if you come from a country where it is banned you may find it challenging. Breakfast is basic... More

The hotel is less than a minute walk away from the metro, acropolis, shops, restaurants, museums, 5 minutes to the temple of Zeus. It offers basic amenities. Shower, TV, WiFi, lift, heating and air conditioning. We traveled with our two younger children ages 3 and 6. We all had a good stay. The reception was very kind to print the... More

A friend of mine stayed here for 2 days in June and I dropped by to pick her up and show her around the city. She was totally disappointed with her stay. She compared it to a nightmare. Cons: Rude, dirty, no Wi Fi in the room, breakfast is totally disappointing. No shower curtain in the bathroom. No matter how... More

First of all, the location is exceptionally!! Me and my husband came from the airport by metro (take the blue line from the airport until Sintagma, change with red line for 1 station up to Akropoli, the ticket for 2 is 14 Eur one way), It is amazing (taking your breath) when you come outside (go to Makrigianni exit) on...

We loved the family feel and special care we received by the owners. Rooms were decent size and well cleaned daily. The location put us within walking distance of every major site. Great value for the money. We would stay here again

Great Location, just a few meters from the Metro station and in easy walking distance from the Acropolis. The bathroom was fine, and the air conditioning worked well. There was a note on the window warning not to open it as there are a lot of mosquitoes - this was a shame, as the balcony looked nice. The room was... More

We arrived and barely got a look from the woman on reception. We were put in one of the basement rooms. It smelt strongly of urine, the bathroom was damp and dirty with no shower curtain, the base of the shower flooded and we didn't have hot water on the second day. There was a constant clicking noise from the... More

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
