We stayed there for one night while visiting Athens. I had booked the "budget double" one which was actually a bit small but ok in general room. Everything was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Though, the location was the greatest thing about Phaedra Hotel. I could see the Acropolis from my window!

I can not describe how pleasant my stay in this hotel was. We arrived in athens at midnight and to the hotel at 2am in the morning and got a room with a beautiful view to the Acropolis for a great price. The location is perfect, really close to everything. Breakfast is cheap and delicious: bread, jam and butter, fruit,... More

We had a good 2 night stay at Hotel Phaedra. The room we had was very small. You could barely walk around the bed. We booked the last room available and the room had no balcony. My understanding was that the room without the balcony was the smallest in the hotel. The upside is that it is really well located... More

We spent one night in Athens between flights and chose this hotel because of its location and walking distance to the sites and the metro. It is a very simple, clean and decent place, the room we had was small with a long balcony, tiny bathroom, shower with curtain, a/c, TV, no safe, no hairdrier, no amenities except for a... More

You can't beat the location. It is in Plaka district, walking distance to shopping, sites and nightlife. Most of the rooms are decent size but some are on the small side so if you want more space just ask for a larger room. The hotel is simple but very clean and the staff is very accommodating. I have stayed at... More

The hotel is located right in the Plaka, which made it very convenient - I would come few times a day on my way to attractions, to change, leave items I bought in the room, etc. It is less than 5 min walk from the Acropolis metro station. The view of Acropolis from the roof top terrace was really great,... More

I stayed at the Phaedra 20 years ago when it cost 10 drachmas a night and there were no locks on the bathroom doors (ah, the old romanticism of old Greece before it joined the euro). Well, things have changed! Even though the location and basics made it a good stay back then, it's a really good stay now. The... More

My husband and I have stayed here for two years now and love this hotel. Marianna and the staff are always so friendly and helpful. The location can't be beat and the room with the view of the Acropolis never ceases to amaze. Our stay here always gives us a wonderful taste of Greek hospitality! J & J from CT,... More

Having stayed in two other Lonely Planet recommended hotels in Istanbul and Kos, we were expecting this to be of a similar standard. It wasn't! However, having spent 3 nights here, I hope to give a balanced view of the Phaedra. Starting with the negatives: we were in a room in which we could barely move, and had to use... More

We had 2 precious nights in GREAT located Phaedra. Despite of our late check-in and early check-out, service was warm-hearted. Rooms and breakfast are a little bit spartan way, but for me it was part of this exellent Athenian experience:-) The roof offers beautiful views to Acropolis, exellent and peaceful for night time romancing:-).
