This being our first time to Athens we didn't know what to expect. We took bus 51 from the KTEL bus station to get to downtown Athens and then just walked to our hotel which was decently close. The hotel is about a 10 to 20 min walk away from all the major sites and a block away from a... More

Arriving: We grabbed a cab from the airport and headed to the hotel. Cab ride was great, brought us through the meat market which was interesting to see. Upon exiting the cab ride we are welcomed by the glass door entrance to Athinaikon. The entrance is accompanied with an overwhelming smell of moth balls,thankfully the hotel does not smell like...

Thanks very much for your review Janine and also for the detailed description and guide tips on Athens. Im sure this will help many travelers visiting our city for the first time. I would even suggest posting it on some of tripadivsor's forums with topics on Athens. I would just like to point out a few reasons why we ask... More

This hotel is in very good location, in between three main squares of the city (Sintagma, Monastiraki and Omonia), very close (not even 5 min walk) to the metro station Monastiraki (from there you take direct metro to the airport). There is a market (agora) next to it. It is very clean in common places and in the room. It... More

The hotel can't be faulted on location for sure. While the neighborhood was a little unnerving at first (so much graffiti!), it's all quite safe. The streets were a little empty at first, we reached Saturday night and all shops remained closed Sunday as well. But come Monday morning, we were greeted with so much activity and life, took us...

I was very satisfied while staying there. It is very close to monastirakis, which is the best location you could wish for when you want to see the acropolis, etc. The owners were very kind and helpfull. A good and cheap hostel!

The people working at the reception desk were very nice. The area(Psirri) looks ghetto, but in reality it's safe; lively neighborhood during the day. No elevators, but that wasn't a problem for me. Very close to main attractions; Monastiraki Square, Syntagma, Ermou St., and easy access to metro. We went to Mykonos for the weekend and the reception desk was... More

When the taxi drove us through this ghetto neighbourhood filled with terrible graffitis to get to the hotel, we thought we were in for a long haul. We were not very impressed with the curb appeal and location at first. To our surprise, we woke up to the most lively neighborhood any traveller could ask for! Shops, merchants, shoppers and... More

I would like to start of with the great service at this hotel. The lady at reception was always helpful and helped us book a taxi to the airport (fixed 35 euros across Athens central). The location is ok. About 5-7 mins walk to metro stations. 8-10 mins to the Monastiraki flea market. It's sad to say the state of... More
