The only positive thing I can say about this hotel is that it's fairly clean, there isn't much of anything else. It was a disappointment right from the beginning. We weren't told that the air conditioning was broken in our room when we checked in, so the room was stifling hot all night, plus there is no sound proofing whatsoever... More

The staff is what makes the Zappion the place to stay. The hotel is in need of some updates, but, it is clean and quiet. The breakfast in the mornings was more than adequate. If there is ever anything you need or any questions you have the staff will go out of their way to make things happen for you... More

This was my second stay at the hotel ZAPPION, since I was very happy with the first stay. More than anything the staff, particularly "George" could not have been more helpful. I had some special requests for Valentine's and they went out of their way to add special little touches beyond my expectations. It is by price a "budget" hotel,... More

I stayed here on a business trip and decided to prolong my weekend with two days of Athens sight seeing (which turned out to be a great plan :-) . My stay at Zappion was excellent. The room is airconditioned, the bed very comfortable and the bathroom clean (allbeit somewhat small). Special thanks go out to the staff who, I... More

Not bad, considering that good hotels in Athens are either too expensive or poorly located. It's an old building, not very well preserved, with tolerable rooms and friendly staff. It was very well situated, within walking distance from syntagma and really close to zappion megaron and other sights. I would recommend it to low-budget travelers who wish themselves a respectable... More

We were arriving late and leaving early so we weren't looking for much. The taxi driver and the car rental company had a hard time finding the hotel. We had a 3 person room and it was a very tight fit! It was clean, but uncomfortable. We learned that most beds in Greece are uncomfortable.

I enjoyed my stay. The hotel does have a distinct decor and the mirrors on either side of my bed encouraged me to think about losing some weight. It did smell of old smoke. The showers are very small but the manager said they were planning on some updating after the tourist season. The staff was very helpful. I was... More

The décor was reminiscent of a brothel with its furry zebra skin wallpaper and curtains, faux antique chandelier and candelabres, and large mirrors. I was quite excited to discover that my room had a balcony, until I saw it had become a store for broken electrical equipment and its only view was of a very deep hole. Allied to that,... More

Staying in Pangrati

Neighborhood Profile
Pangrati
The elongated Panathenaic Stadium, built for the first modern Olympic Games in 1896, acts as grand gateway to the otherwise purely Athenian neighborhood of Pangrati. This area of typical small squares, busy main roads and residential streets will give you a clear sense of what living in this metropolis is like. A walk up quiet Markou Mousourou Street on the west side of the stadium will bring you past the First National Cemetery to Mets, home to many expats. Turn right to reach the charming Platia Varnava. East of the stadium, commercial Eratosthenous Street leads to rather nondescript Platia Plastira, from where Effranoros Street continues uphill to Platia Profiti Ilia, crowned by a huge church. Among the standard four- to six-story apartment blocks that typify Athens, Pangrati also boasts some genuinely authentic tavernas and the odd trendy bar.
