Stayed at the Carolina I late August. The room was small, but it was clean, comfy and had a decent enough en suite. For the price paid it provided good value. Great location just minutes from Monasteraki with some cool bars and restaurants close by. The breakfast is basic, and you may be better off heading out to the dozens... More

We visited Athens end of May and our original hotel plan fell through. We booked Hotel Carolina at the lobby of the other hotel and got there within an hour. Staff were very courteous and kind. We were put into a room that had no balony and only a small window to nowhere, but beggars can't be choosers. There was... More

Carolina Hotel's location is perfect: tourist attractions such as Plaka, Monastiraki and the Acropolis are all at a walking distance. Furthermore, its low prices, its cleanliness, and kind staff are also advantages! Last but not least, I can't forget to mention its old, iron elevator, which is in the center of the place, in my opinion, it adds to the... More

Carolina hotel is the perfect crash pad for a long weekend in Athens. It's a budget hotel and there's no hidden surprises. Clean and fantastically located but no frills. We arrived in the middle if the night, 4am and shown to our room. It was noisey and the air con not working but we fell asleep so tired. Reported the... More

I spent a couple of nights here and was very pleased. The location is very central. You can walk to most everything and there are a couple of metro stops nearby if you want to go further afield. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Just as a side note, there is an old-fashioned elevator. I just love elevators that... More

Our booking was arranged by a travel agent in Crete. The hotel is well situated in the Plaka district off Monestaraki (Constitution) Square, in walking distance to the main attractions of Ancient Greece, and the busy street life of modern Athens, and much less expensive than the fancy hotels around the square proper. The rooms are not fancy, but more... More

The room was cool, clean and big enough. The location is good, close to pretty much everything of interest. The area isn't anything special and the view we had of the roof of a dilapidated building across the road might not amuse everybody as much as it did us but it wasn't a bad area in that we saw nothing...

We stayed at this hotel in September. The staff was very friendly and helpfull, rooms are clean and very comfy. The hotel is really great, its walking distance to all attractions, you just turn around the corner and you're in the city centre. 5-10 min walk to Syntagma square, 20min walk to Acropolis. I would really recommend this hotel, I... More

This was my third time staying here. The rooms are small however we never spend much time there as Athens has so much to do. The air conditioning works well and the staff is very helpful. They are now charging for breakfast. Hotel Carolina is very close to the Platka, Monastiraki, the Acropolis, and Syntagma.

My wife, two teenage girls and I stayed at the Carolina last week and had an excellent experience. The tripadvisor star rating indicates a 2 star hotel, and I would say it is fairly accurate. Staff was very helpful and polite. Location, location, location. 5 minute walk from subway station (first time to Athens, and we took the subway in... More
