“Loved our recent stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Picked Acropolis HIll based on TripAdvisor reviews. The lobby, rooms and rooftop view exceeded expectations.

Breakfast was mediocre to poor, actually, in my opinion. Had a hard time everywhere in Greece getting used to instant coffee at breakfast.

The guy at the desk at night was super helpful - pointed us to a local restaurant called Ambrosia that we enjoyed. TIP: get souvlaki from the counter to go for lunch -- GREAT price!

Loved the location and am already wondering wat might take me back to Athens and the Acropolis HIll Hotel.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your review! We are glad to read that you enjoyed the lobby, rooms, rooftop view as well as the location and customer service at Acropolis Hill Hotel. As for the breakfast, kindly note that we do not have instant coffee. We serve French coffee brand Douwe Egberts and try to have “lots of selections of good food” as other guests are saying, in order to start your day with energy!
We hope to see again in the near future!

Good for seeing city. Not good for relaxing. Walls are thin. Rating as 4 due to value for price. If you like to sleep in go somewhere else.

Room Tip: Sleep on street side. We had construction while we were there. Started at 830am

Dear Janie,

Thank you for choosing the Acropolis Hill Hotel and for taking the time to share your comments on TripAdvisor. We are sorry to know that you were not entirely satisfied, due to the construction work done in attached building, which is unfortunately beyond our power. For the last couple of months we haven’t had any problems with noise, so I am really sorry you experienced it.
We hope you will have the opportunity to come again at Acropolis Hill Hotel in the future and enjoy a relaxed stay.

With Kind Regards

I booked with the Acropolis Hill at the last minute with low expectations based mainly on the (very) reasonable price given the location. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel is extremely well appointed having been recently completely renovated. Extremely nice in every respect, more comfortable and upscale than most upscale business hotels I stay at.

The location couldn't be better, very close to the Acropolis but not in an area which is thronged with other tourists. Having said so, if getting out to where the crowds are for nightlife is your thing you won't be disappointed on that count either - it's a very short walk from the hotel to where the action is in the evenings.

Breakfast was included in the price of the room, and again exceeded my expectations. Reception contains a fully stocked bar and espresso machine with a deck on which to smoke.

There is a nice pool with new wooden deck and lounge chairs, as well as a rooftop terrace area which provides an unobstructed view of the Acropolis as well as of the city as a whole. It would be perfectly pleasant to pick up a bottle of wine and some take away food to enjoy on the terrace.

Perhaps most impressive of all was the warmth displayed by the hotel staff. The desk manager went to great lengths to ensure that he was sending us to attractions that met our needs, and always without ever making us feel like he was doing anything out of the ordinary. I had a long conversation with this gentleman and left feeling as though I had made a new friend.

Highly, highly recommended.

The price was really good compared to other hotels in the Acropolis area. We really did not know what to expect, and were very pleasantly surprised. The hotel was very modern, clean, had a great rooftop view of the Acropolis and the city of Athens, and was directly across the street from the Filopappou, a beautiful hiking area and ancient monument. The location was only about 5-10 minutes from the Acropolis, and was very close to all sorts of restaurants and shops, Plaka and Syntagma Square. The staff was very accommodating and professional. The complimentary breakfast was great, with lots of selections of good food.

The only thing that we didn't like is : Rooms where very small , kept bumping into things , couldnt move the case around the room to unpack

I very much enjoyed my recent stay at the Acropolis Hill. This is a new hotel, modern, well run, very quiet and clean. It is situated within walking distance to Acropolis and its Museum. One can also walk to Plaka and the center of Athens. The neighbourhood is both lovely and safe and the views from the hotel rooms situated in it's upper floors are stupendous (some to Acropolis). Breakfast is very good and plentiful for a non luxury Greek hotel. I highly recommend it to foreign and Greek visitors.

Stayed there overnight.
The hotel is absolutely brilliant. It is newly built, in a very very beautiful classy and peaceful neighborhood in Athens.It is next to the new Acropolis museum, but not close to a metro station (5 minutes walking distance). But, still, it is close to the center, were you can get with a 4 euro taxi drive.

The room was spacious, very clean with excellent mattresses The bathroom was new and the room was cozy with wege/white colors.
All, reasonably priced (BB for 60 euros.).
Breakfast was not rich (eggs/beacon as hot plate) but it was ok.. After all it is just a 3 star "honest" hotel.
I booked my room directly from their reservation system, over the phone.
Will return and definitely recommend it..
