I've spent 3 nights in Athens on this hotel. First impression was an average hotel. The neighborhood did not seem very friendly, sometimes even miserable. 20 minutes walk to the Plaka, Sintagma Square or other objectives. Rooms were clean and decent, with clean bathroom and good ventilation. Decent services, but only 2 elevators that can not be enough, especially when... More

The bedrooms were tired. The service was good as was the food. The Crystal is near to the metro which was convenient (the prices were reasonable). The roads are very busy and so the metro was the quickest and cheapest form of transport. The roof garden was pleasant on an evening. The lift is minute - we had problems getting... More

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights while on a tour around Greece. The room was very comfortable, if a little cramped, however this was mainly to do with the fact that they had fitted another bed in so that three of us could share a room. The bathroom door kept locking itself but was easily opened by... More

We stayed at Crystal City hotel for two nights. It is in a very convenient location, close to metro station. The hotel is clean and the staff is polite. Breakfast was very good. We asked for a triple room but they gave us a very small double with extra bed.In general, it was not as good as we expected to... More

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our time in Greece. We could hear the traffic in our room even though we were a few stories up. We had an issue with check-in - we had reserved our hotel online but they had delayed processing payment. When we showed up to check-in, the hotel desk informed us... More

The good - very conveniently situated for metro and bus tours, nice reasonably priced lobby bar, some good hot and cold breakfast choices, free luggage storage in a keyed luggage store while I was sailing.

No help with luggage, very basic room. Beds like planks. When the plug was pulled on the tub, the water came up the floor drain in the bathroom.Self service breakfast with little choice and poor products. The only saving grace is the rooftop bar and restaurant that is only open in the evening.
