This family-fun hotel is situated on a hill overlooking some parts of the city, so be ready to climb the stairs and or take the alternative from the other side. We recommend you arrange airport pick-up/drop off with the hotel. We called the hotel to give us the best room (room 24) facing the Parthenon, lucky it was available, enjoyed... More

My girlfriend and I recently spent two nights at Hotel Dryades and really enjoyed our time there. The hotel is clean, has well-equipped rooms and is in a neighbourhood full of bars and restaurants. The staff were incredibly helpful; on our last day (having checked out) we came to collect our suitcase from reception, whereupon the owner offered us an... More

The Hotel Dryades (& it's sister hotel The Orion ) are two wonderful little boutique hotels in the heart of Athens' creative and alternative area, Exarchion. The nearest metro is Omonia (10 minute walk) but a short cab ride will get you to the hotel very quickly. The hotel staff were very helpful. The receptionist made me a Greek coffee... More

We stayed at Hotel Dryades for three nights and were warmly welcomed by the gentleman on reception and shown to our room. We stayed in a basic room however we found it clean and comfortable; our room faced onto a small court yard, were we could sit outside. There was a kettle and a fridge which were useful, the bathroom... More

I came to Athens to write [work] and travel. I stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. I arrived before ten o'clock and was received by a very nice man. I got a spacious and comfortable room with a balcony including a table and chairs and a lovely view [especially at night] to the Acropolis. The room [and the bathroom]... More

I've just returned after spending 3 nights on a room only basis with my daughter at Dyades. I booked online. We arrived around 10pm. The man at reception was very kind and helpful and made an effort to speak English to us, he must have noticed how bad my Greek was! He didn't have our booking but dealt with the... More

We spent 2 nights in September 2012 in Hotel Dryades. We've booked the cheapest double-room, without view, we did not expect much. To our surprise, it was very good. The hotel is on a dead-end street, so there is no traffic, it is very quiet. The room is clean, spatious, we had a fridge, a water cooker, a third bed.... More

We were a group of 20 people and had booked the hotel with the help of some Greek friends, who also discussed a special discount price. The place is clean and located close to a University campus. The park next to it, is used by Greeks as a place to party at the weekend. So this is not a place... More

Not much to expect from this cheap hotel. Just good enough for the location. Others so so.

I booked this off my phone as soon as landing so I could get the lower non-refundable price of just 40 Euro. When we got there, they had not received the booking, and it didn't seem to go through, but they treated us right and gave it to us at the same price and even threw in an upgrade since... More
