I stayed at the 5* Melia Athens on my last trip to Athens in the summer and thought I'd book a cheaper budget hotel for a four day break in January . I read lots of reviews of the Rio Athens hotel and was a bit worried because I'd read them on one site when I booked and the reviews... More

I'm not sure where to start, so I'll just dive in. This is one bizarre hotel. The reception was manned by two very elderly gentlemen in mismatched clothing, neither of whom looked at nor greeted me when I arrived to check in. One of them took my 50 euro note and put it in his wallet, while the other gave... More

Hotel administration refused to clean the room(!) their argument: you get what you pay: you paid "only" €96 and this condition is pretty good for this price. if you need clean room -... More

We stayed along the road at the Hotel Stanley and ate here on our last day with my family. Two weeks of superb food on a road trip across Greece from Levkas in the East to Athens and not a single meal that was less than great, until we ate here. It is a wonderful looking hotel from the outside,... More

Highly unpleasant (and almost indecent) staff. The rooms are terrible, the beds seem like they are assembled in some shed by people that never handled power tools. Everything was generally dirt (sheets, tables,floor), the bath actually being the cleanest. Walls are very thing so you can hear everything (if you know what I mean) from the rest of the rooms,...

I have traveled to many countries and this is by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my life. I booked this hotel through American Airlines Vacations for 9 nights and it was a big mistake. I was traveling with my husband and three kids (ages 20, 18 and 15). I understand that this is a budget... More
