Such a great place for us to stay in Athens! Located super close to the metro, and around some good restaurants. There is also a flea market by the metro worth checking out. Good value for your money here! Only saw stairs though- not sure if it's able to accommodate wheelchairs. Looks like a run down area but the security... More

Its a small family run 1 star hotel, clean and quiet near to Athens' main tourist attraction, Acropolis. The lady owner at the reception was nice but lacked "touristy information" that i would always like to get from hostel/hotel. I was given a room on 2nd floor but there was no lift in the building. The room was OK with... More

Convenient location, easy walk to most major sites in town. Good room for cheap price although isn't a hostel with that type of vibe and then also isn't a nice room with decent bathroom so really is just a suitable place to spend the night. Read a few reviews about being in a dodgy area and it does appear that... More

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
