If walking around historic Athens is what you've come to do, this is an excellent option. The rooms are small and basic, but have balconies; ours had a view of the Acropolis, which is only a couple of blocks away. The hotel is also near the bus station in Syntagma, if you are looking to bus around the city. The... More

Phaedra offers reasonably good value for money in an unbeatable and enviable corner of the Plaka district of Athens. My room offered a great view of part of the Acropolis, but if you miss out, don't forget to check out the roof-top terrace. Reception staff were good and offer maps. Breakfast is an optional extra, but the only aspect of... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. We had the misfortune of sharing a floor with two families traveling together with several small children who ran around and would cry when they didn't want to go to bed. And you could hear them crying and screaming through the walls and under the door. Pretty uncomfortable bed (super squeaky... More

Location was ideal for sightseeing and public transportation, plus a great view of the acropolis and St Katherine's. The owner was very hospitable and charming. Air conditioner and elevator worked. Enjoyed our stay here very much. Be sure to get take out for a rooftop picnic! And bring cash as they don't take cards.

Excellent location in terms of sightseeing. Close proximity to the metro, Acropolis, Temple of Olympian Zeus and shops/ restaurants. The rooms are small, but it was fine for a short stay in Athens. Great views of the Acropolis from the roof. Definitely a good value.

This hotel is in a perfect location - around the corner from restaurants and shops, an easy walk to all the Acropolis sights, and only a short walk to a good place to catch a taxi for exploring further or getting to the airport. It is not plush, but is clean and quiet and has everything you need. I would... More

This was a perfect location to explore the Plaka. They were very accommodating and helpful. Hotel views and rooftop terrace are wonderful. Breakfast is simple but served very nicely. You are able to eat in the lobby or on the rooftop. You are paying for what you get so although accommodations are nice don't expect luxury. I would return in... More

I stayed here four nights at the beginning of my trip. My room had a balcony with a view of the Acropolis. Absolutely stunning. I chose a room with a bathroom across the hall to save money. It was inconvenient, but I expected that. Both my room and the bathroom were very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful.... More

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
