“Simply more than asked for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We were very blessed to have been referred to this hotel. Very very comfortable, quiet, very clean and neat. All the personnel were friendly and hospitable. Breakfasts are superb and the restaurant also offers dinners. Close to the Metro station thus very accessible.

Lotus Hotel is a family owned hotel. The rooms were very clean and recently renovated. The bed was very comfortable and area was quiet for sleep. The room and bathroom were larger than we expected and the pictures on the website and here are right on!! The restaurant and breakfast were very good. We ate breakfast there every morning and had dinner there twice. It did not disappoint even our picky children. Breakfast consisted of eggs, meat, fruit, yogurt, cereal, breads, pastries jams and juices. It was very very tasty.

The staff was very friendly and accommodating even changing our TV to English for us to hear as we were getting ready for bed. They held our luggage when we got there early and suggested the National Museum about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. When we returned, the room was ready and they rapidly checked us in since we were going on about 30 hours since sleep. The gave us a great map and showed us areas to go and how to get there also.

It is near the Metro, but a little bit of a drive to the airport. The area around the hotel has a couple of restaurants within 2 minute walk, a couple of convenience stores for quick purchases, and has plenty of shopping along the streets and boutiques around 10-15 minute walk. Please do not be afraid to walk around the area, the people were nice and the out of the tourist area shops were best.

I would gladly stay there again if going to Athens. The money saved from the "higher end" hotels is well saved as the Lotus will meet all your needs in a boutique hotel setting. Save the money and take some tours to the islands, which they will gladly set up for you!!

The hotel is at the center of Athens, near metro station. Is very clean, with luxurious furniture and linens by one of the best greek corporations: Cocomat. All the beds are king size and the rooms are spacious! Highly recomended

Great concierge service! The person who checked us in was wonderful and helped us immensely. With his help, we were able to book a last-minute ferry trip to Santorini and dine at some great local restaurants.

The hotel is in a run-down part of town, but my room (a corner room with hardwood floors) was small but very clean with 2 sliding doors and plenty of light. My mom's room wasn't so great--it was darker and with older stained carpet. But it's a good value as it is steps away from the subway station and only a few stops away from the heart of Athens.

Although our room was a tight space, we were satisfied overall with the room. The hotel room is very clean and tidy. The hotel is conveniently located near the metro station and several good restaurants. We would stay here again. They also have a restaurant within the hotel but we didn't try it.

We stayed one night. Not many eating and drinking options nearby but enough for our stay. Offers wifi, continental breakfast, and hotel bar. Staff speaks English and was very helpful in using the metro, sightseeing options etc. Airport taxi ride was $55 euro at 4am. Extra charges for the early hour ride. The metro starts at 5am and taxi prices go down as well.
