We chose a hotel that's close to Acropolis and this is exactly that - more of a lodge. But, practical in all ways. Close to Acropolis and most attractions are walking distance. You may find this better suited for solo or budget travellers

The location is phenomenal! From my balcony, I was at the base of the Acropolis; what a view!! The neighborhood was superb, right on the corner of the best shopping and overall very safe. The hotel was clean..... The Cons: No breakfast or coffee. The staff was very unfriendly and ridiculously unhelpful. No hair dryer or basic amenities. The room... More

We were looking for a great little budget hotel to crash for one night, and this place really exceeded our expectations. It’s literally right below the Acropolis in the heart of the Plaka and an easy walk (even dragging big suitcases) from either Monastiraki square metro or Syntagma Square metro. The hotel is clean and well looked after. The rooms... More

We stayed six nights while we explored Athens, and it was ideal for us. We walked almost everywhere and took the metro only to the National Archaeological Museum and airport. The staff were extremely helpful and pointed us to other places in Greece to go in December. Highly recommended

This hotel was in the ideal location for me, at the heart of the Plaka neighborhood where I had friends. The room overlooked the back of the Parthenon, and the rooftop was a nice little place to enjoy a drink, have breakfast or read a book while listening to the sounds of the city. The room was efficient and clean... More

The hotel and room itself is a 3 but considering the super friendly staff and can't beat location, easily a 4 or better. Situated in the best part of the Plaka, safe and clean, tons of shops and restaurants. A 5 min walk to the ruins, metro and new museum.

We stayed here one night on our arrival in Athens and two nights at the end of the trip. Rooms small and beds are probably not even equal to a Canadian double. However, they do not claim to be anything they are not. Staff was friendly and helpful. The location is the best feature with great views of the acropolis... More

All sounds were audible - vibration from phone next door; cars, conversations and construction work outside; constantly creaking bed with every budge. Cigarette smell in room and in corridor despite requesting a non-smoking room. Mattress was worn out and uncomfortable, leaving bruises from the spring after a night's sleep. Badly-ventilated, lowly-lit room. Odd room layout made room feel very small.... More

I don't think you could find a better location in Athens. The hotel is right in the centre and if you are lucky enough, you can have a view of the Acropoli from your window/balcony. We booked a cheap room, which was clean, simple, had everything we needed. The staff was incredibly sweet. I would go there again.

Hotel Phaedra is in a great location. We walked everywhere. We had a balcony and could look up at the Acropolis or down on the shopping area. The roof top terrace is really nice. We were close to many wonderful restaurants. There was no refrigerator and the breakfast is not included and not worth the small price they charge. But... More
