I stayed at John's many times over the last few years, from my first visit to Athens in 2004. It was functional, with great character, in a fantastic location and very well priced for all this. The owner/staff (Costas, Stefan, etc) were always so friendly and helpful, especially given I usually arrived at 2am due to flights. Unfortunately when I... More

The hotel is in a great location, safe neighborhood and close to all the eateries near the Plaka. The staff was so helpful when we had problems getting to the airport due to a government strike. The lodging is clean and spacious and perfect for a short stay in Athens. It is also convenient to the metro and really an... More

The hotel is located between the old quarter Plaka with the Acropolis and the modern city centre with Syntagma square and the main shopping street Ermou. All main sights are within walking distance. There is a direct metro service from/to the airport at Syntagma station, which is only a few minutes' walk from the hotel. It is on a street... More

This is a basic hotel for the people who just need a place with a bed and bathroom. Basic but it does it well. Rooms are spacious with comfortable beds. Large bathroom with a bathtub. You won't hit your elbows on the walls ten times by the time you're done showering. The whole place has a homely feeling to it.... More

It was near the Acropolis and cafes which was great and the owner was very friendly and helpful. My single room was very basic and I woke up the next morning with many bites - not sure whether a very hungary mosquito or bed bugs.

The room we stayed was clean with view to the acropolis. everything was 2 minutes walking and we felt very safe. Also we need to mention that the owner were very friendly and kind. The prices were very reasonable, and we didn't mind that the bathrooms were shared.

John's place is very well located, the rooms are large and although the bathroom are shared, they are kept clean. The perfect spot between flights or for a few days in Athens.

An unpretentious hotel, clean bedrooms, affordable prices (40 euros during the high season) and a very nice and funny concierge. The bathroom is on the floor, but it is very clean and with hot water. The center is very near and walking distance; the bus to the airport from Syntagma square is a walking distance, too. Ask for a room... More

This hotel is conveniently located near the Syntagama Square. It's within short walking distance to the Metro station. The hotel owner/manager is very helpful and courteous. The quad room is very spacious with 4 beds, but the double room our friends got have only one bed rather than two beds. Also, the shared bathroom may need some renovation. I've stayed... More
