We stayed at the Hotel Rio in October for 4 nights. The total cost for a double room, en-suite, for bed and breakfast was €136. That works out at an amazing €17 per person per night for bed and breakfast. What are all those people who are writing in complaining about? The Hotel Rio is wonderful value for money. The... More

When we checked in, we were never told about the services the hotel could provide for us. For example, no menus were visible anywhere, no restaurant hours were posted, was room service an option, and what were the hours of the bar, I didn't see everyone ever eat at the so called lobby restaurant for lunch or dinner. There were... More

If you get what you pay for, then lower your expectations for the low-priced Rio Hotel. If you want a small room, a simple (non-varying) breakfast buffet, and few amenities, Rio delivers. But if you want a friendly staff who seeks to make your stay enjoyable, go somewhere else. Many of the staff, particularly the owners, were rude, insulting, and... More

The hotel itself is not that much different from others I have stayed in. The rooms were clean thought sparsely furnished. The lobby was adequate. If my judgement of the establishment were simply appearance this hotel would be worth considering. However the service is what tipped the scale to poor and maybe even lower. The hotel advertises a free breakfast,... More

This hotel has the worst customer service I have ever seen in my life. Not only is the staff unattentive, they are plain rude. The staff turned off the air in the middle of our stay because they said that it was cold outside, which it wasn't. When one of my colleagues complained to the owner about it being hot... More

On my second day in Athens I decided to go to a hotel to have a pleasant time there, but it wasn't. The hotel is not in a nice area, not to far from the turistic district, but is not nice to walk the 5 blocks distance. The room was clean except from the hair that I found on my... More

How many times have you dated someone purely for their look? How many times have you gone out with someone against friendly advice? Yes, the Rio Hotel in Athens certainly reminds of all of that. If there was ever a case to valuing the comments from fellow travellers on Tripadviser then this is certainly it. All that I have read... More

We ate lunch here yesterday (we were staying just up the road at the Hotel Stanley). The area is fine, and very convenient for Metaxourgiou metro (on the same line for Syntagma Square and Acropolis). We were the only people eating there, which should have been a sign for us. Food was priced medium/high (Greek Salad 6.5€, Pizza 12€ &... More
