I liked this hotel overall. Great location. Very clean rooms. Good staff. The hotel is 50 meters away from the metro station. Breakfast is excellent. Cost is proportional to the service. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice clean and tidy. For staying in Athens on a budget, this is the place. I would definitely... More

We booked a 3 person room as there were no 2 person rooms available. We stayed 4 nights. This hotel was a very pleasant surprise. We enjoyed its fresh new upgrade. Every thing about the hotel was appealing. Friendly and helpful staff, perfect location for the Acropolis, perfectly cooked and presented food served in the plaza beside the hotel (Rio... More

While the location and size of room were o.k. the fact that there were no bed covers, only sheets, broken shower heads, extremely moldy shower curtain, ran out of toilet paper, made it hard to tolerate. Although staff was accommodating, the management seemed lacking - could not give accurate directions from airport to hotel, did not welcome our large group,... More

Rio earned 5-stars from me because service goes a long way for me and the gentleman who greeted me made sure daily I received good advice in getting around Athens, where to go, the best way to go, plus he drew me a good map I used for my 1-day walking tour. I only paid ~$50 USD per night total... More

Free WiFi but, only 3 hours per 1 password, you need to keep bothering hotel staff for more, Location is good that is near metro but, its not a pretty area. The rooms are very old and low quality. Overall i think the value makes it worth a try.

The place is run down and very dirty..........we did not get our money back.......a total loss....... stay away from... More
