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 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
