There are 2 reasons to choose the Central, it really is central - between Syntagma square and the Acropolis and secondly it has a rooftop bar with an amazing view of the Acropolis especially at sunset, where you can enjoy an ouzo after a dip in the jacuzzi. Yes the rooms + bathrooms are, shall we say, compact, but this... More

We spent 4 nights at the Central Hotel Athens. The hotel was perfect from the moment we checked in until we left. The staff couldn't have been kinder. The rate included full breakfast even though they refer to it as continental. The view from the rooftop terrace and bar was of the Acropolis and we enjoyed late evening drinks marveling... More

My stay at Central hotel was very pleasant. The breakfast is very good and also are the accommodations. Before arriving I was concerned about the location, but them I realized that it is very good. Dimitrios, at the reception, is always willing to help you.

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
