Our first trip to Athens and we were so pleased with this hotel. We arrived at about 6.30am after being up for 24hours, not expect g to be able to check in until 2pm as advertised. The Night receptionist greeted us with a smile, took our bags from us and showed us where we could get coffee/ water and some... More

The hotel hospitality was great. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. They held our bags upon our early arrival and had a bathroom in the lobby to change and freshen up. A 5 minute walk and your in the Plaka. This is where all the shops and restaurant are located. You are walking distance to the Acropolis as well. The... More

The hotel is at walking distance from the Acropolis and Monastiraki area, which is the nicest area of Athens, full of restaurants and shops. It is also close to all Metro, tram and bus stations. It has an amazing roof where you can see the Acropolis while you are drinking wine or having a jacuzzi. However, rooms are very small.... More

We booked this hotel based on the excellent reviews in Trip Advisor & stayed 2 nights. I can understand how this hotel has been given good reviews because it does do some things very well - like the breakfast buffet, the helpful staff and it's location in the Plaka. However, I have a hard time rating it better than average... More

We stayed at Central Hotel in a double room for 2 nights at the start of August. The room was a good size and had a balcony. The room and hotel were clean and in good condition – I think the hotel is only a few years old. The location of the hotel is excellent, right in the middle of... More

I loved how close this hotel was to everything. Very close walk to syntagma square (where we did the hop on/hop off bus tour) and close to many restaurants. Also, the view from the upstairs bar was breathtaking. We had a view of the Acropolis from our hotel room also, which was a nice plus. The room was small, however... More

Thank you very much for your review on Central Athens Hotel. We are happy that you enjoyed our services and you had a nice stay with us. Building restrictions give us limited choices on the elevator size but we have it in mind in a future renovation provided that bureaucracy will allow us to alter it. We look forward to... More

The biggest plus of this hotel was that it was close to everything - the Acropolis, Plaka, and Syntagma Square (where the express bus from/to the airport is). Plaka in particular was a charming area. However, the rooms were very small, even by European standards. The bathroom was clean, nice, and neat, but so small that even washing your hands... More

Pros: Great location from airport bus and Acropolis. Breakfast had a good selection of hot and cold food. Great views of the Acropolis for drinks on the terrace. Fantastic shower pressure. Firm bed. Excellent customer service throughout the hotel. Cons: Rooms and bathroom are small. Internet was intermittent and slow. Limited English tv channels. The pros outweighed the cons for... More

Great location for Plaka. Lovely rooftop terrace with Acropolis view. Breakfast very good. Clean modern bathroom with toiletries. Room 101 slightly small, claustrophobic room and no view and next to smoking area, so best avoid. Good value.
