4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

i cannot say enough about this hotel. The Father & son owner team were extremely welcoming and hospitable. They went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Since we were coming back to the hotel after visiting the islands they offered to keep most of our luggage in their storage so we did not have to cart all of... More

I booked this based off Tripadvisor reviews and they were accurate! For a 2-star hotel, I give it 5 stars. Location location location!!! Right in/near Plaka... within walking distance from the Metra stations, both Syntagma and Monastiaiki Squares, and very close to Acropolis and Museums. Not only that... but the men at the front door are SO nice! Very helpful... More

The hotel is very easy to find, took the bus from the airport and the Metropolis is just 5 minute walk from the bus stop, the bus is the only public transportation from the airport after midnight. The staff is great and will help with anything they have perfect knowledge of the city center and of visitors needs, great bar... More

Excelent location and good atention! Next to the most important turistic places of Athens. You can take bus tours from Sintagma Square that is close to the hotel. Monastiraki is also close to the hotel. I had an excelent experience in Greece. I would like to come back.

I'd stay at this hotel every time I'm in Athens, wouldn't find any better location with reasonable price and amazing helpful stuff, I tried two rooms both were with an amazing view, really enjoyed my stay there and special thanks for the stuff there for being that nice and helpful.

can't recommend this place enough. We had the most amazing time on our honeymoon. Beautiful rooms and fantastic view of the Acropolis. The most amazing staff we really liked their local tips and restaurant suggestions. Great location by shops and a few minutes walk to the metro. The breakfast On the roof and the lady serving are also great!!

We stayed in Athens for 1 night before heading back home. I knew I wasn't booking a 5 star hotel but this just did not meet our expectations. It's 20E from the port to the hotel. Also the hotel has a set rate to the airport for 35E but looking at the meter it was only 27E so you are... More

The hotel is very well located within walking distance to everything, we got a room on the last floor and the view is wonderful, the room was very very small and very basic but clean, it is just in front of the cathedral so if you are a light sleeper be warned that the bells ring every hour, the staff...

This hotel had it's ups and downs during our two stays... but overall far more bad experiences. - Biggest item: we got double charged and the hotel wouldn't solve the issue. Basically guy at the front desk insisted we pay in cash, even though we told him we had paid via CC. He insisted that was reservation only and held... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I like to think that you would have written this review without a bad intention, but it is hurting our feelings sine it is the first time since 1971 when we first started operating that someone has accused us of anything. Regarding your claim that we have double... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
