I spent 4 nights at the Ilissos in July and found it to be very good value for money. Although there are several derelict buildings in the area, the hotel is really close to the centre of Athens and you could walk to the Acropolis area in around 15 minutes. There are also some pedestrianised streets around the corner from... More

We went to this hotel as a group from school and had a fantastic stay. We were checked in within minutes, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is extremely very clean and the rooms are comfortable and, despite the road below, there is absolutely no noise. Ilissos also has a great location and is only a 10-15... More

My sister and I recently stayed at Hotel Ilissos for one night in Athens. We needed an affordable option since we were staying for less than 24 hours. Ilissos was a great option and just what we were looking for. The rooms were clean and the hotel is in a great location (only a 10-15 minute walk to the Acropolis).... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week in the triple room. The room was more spacious than we expect, it was clean, functional and comfortable. The hotel staff was very helpful and the service was of a high standard. The breakfast and dinner provided was fairly standard with a wide range of choice. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

I wasn't sure that this hotel was a going to be good because the price was so much cheaper than many others, but the reviews were right on the money. The staff were epic and it's probably the type of service I've had in a 5 star hotel, congrats to the team they did a wonderful job, it was just... More

Its cheap and comfortable. Maybe the interiors are not the newest but room was shining clean and beds are comfortable. Super friendly, helpful staff is like from a 6* class hotel. Breakfast was just fine. Nice terrace on the roof wit view on Acropolis. Location is good - there are nice restaurants and a metro station close to hotel, and... More

Triple room was spacious. Wifi worked well. Bathroom a little odd. Shower was an add-on and perpendicular to the tub -- water ends up everywhere. Breakfast was decent, nothing spectacular. Neighbor looks a little sketchy but walking was ok. It's a good hike uphill to the Acropolis through city streets. Returning in the dark was a little challenging. Parking is... More

We spent a week at the Ilissos Hotel this spring and found it very friendly and comfortable. Arriving was a little daunting as we took the tram to the stop 200m away but this drops you the other side of two dual cariageways and we had to find a way through a zigzag underpass and across the secxond road to...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The best part of this facility was the staff! They were all exceptionally helpful and friendly and spoke very good English. The hotel is somewhat dated and the rooms smelled musty. Do not use the room phone to make a toll free or collect call. I called my credit card company collect... More
