“Business Trip Athens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Excellent hotel in a good central location. Staff extremely professional and courteous. Excellent restaurant with great view of the Acropolis. Smoking rules in Greece are different to what you may be accustomed to so expect the best views to be reserved for smokers!!

This was my first visit to Greece. I was delighted to stay at The Athens Hilton. I was upgraded as a gold HONORS member to a junior suite and had the use of the executive lounge. I was very grateful for this courtesy. The lounge was an excellebt standard and the views of the Acropolis from the balcony was superb!

The room was one of the best I have ever had. Beautifully appointed and maintained.

I wold have no hesitation to recommend this hotel to anyone.

The proximity to the Metro station was really good for getting around and the train to and from the airport which was really easy to navigate.

Room Tip: A view of the Acropolis is a real bonus and worth it!

The hilton athens is one of those older hotels, built in a time when architecture was in losing the battle to efficiency. The hotel appears dated, and while the cost is reasonable, expect to pay very high prices for anything extra. 15 euro ($20) to use the gym. 8 euro ($11) for a small water in the room. 8eur ($11) delivery fee for any in room dining. 20 euro per day for internet access, with a slow router.

The gym itself is quite nice and the sauna was comfortable. The showers were not that clean, so I didn't use them. The room itself was fine, pretty much standard corporate hotel design, except for an ancient TV.

The location was ok, About a 25 minute walk to major attractions.

Room Tip: ask for one that faces the acropolis.

I was in Athens last month for a workshop, which was held in Hilton.
The location of the hotel is quite good, just two stops from downtown. The next metro station to the hotel is Evangelismos and if you take Line 3, in minutes you will in Monastraki.
The breakfast was good, the staff was friendly and the service in general was excellent. But for sure the room, I stayed was not a 5* one. It was clean but worn out a lot and needs an urgent renovation. The mini-bar prices and the drinks in the roof bar were one of the most expensive ones among 5* and deluxe hotels, I have stayed worlwide.
I hope, they plan a renovation in near future and correct the mini-bar and drink prices in the roof bar.

The room was very nice and clean however the bed was very firm. The room rate was acceptable as we got it on special offer but normal room rates are far too expensive. The Club upgrade was worth it however the light snacks early evening were not much to rave about. A few dips, rolls, little squares of quiche,etc a bit poor for this standard of hotel. Dress code was also a bit too casual at times.

It is a shame as from the 1st November the pool was closed as the weather was really hot and it would have been nice to have a dip. Wifi cost expensive at €20 per day but nothing tops the mini bar prices in the room - Pringles at €13.50, water at €7.50, etc. etc. Why ??

My biggest disappointment were the reception staff in "club" were not over friendly. Hardly a smile and sometimes a bit abrupt. A friendly smile to people who have paid substantial amounts to be there would go a long way. Would I vist again ......... there are other places to try !

> Stayed for athens marathon. > Good location for buses / metro > Too many people smoking in hotel bars so it spoils view - therefore you cannot take advantage of it. > I dont expect to pay extra for a pool in the hotel when i'm getting up at 5am to start the race i want it quiet at 10pm, this was not the case you could hear traffic and disco noses. After a long journy to the hotel i dont expect to pay for bottle of water in the room and not 7 euro - either.
