“Very pleased!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Great location, beautiful rooms, lovely breakfast, excellent wifi connection, very well priced. The only negative think for me it was the smell of smoke in our room. It was suppose to be non smoking room but probably some clever person decided to have a smoke before left. Also the entrance of the building Diamond plus it was smelly.

I have stayed at several hotels in Athens, ranging in price as well as varying in location, and I can honestly say there has never been one which stood out in my mind in that I had to absolutely return to; but after staying at the Athens Diamond Plus this summer, I will never stay at any other hotel in Athens again. I do not know how my friend and I managed to stumble upon this hotel, but I am glad we did, as it truly proved to be a hidden gem of Athens!

The 'Athens Diamond Plus' is the sister hotel to the 'Athens Diamond Hotel' which is just across the street. Located near the corner of Voulis and Metropoleos streets in Plaka, within walking distance of the shopping district of Ermou, as well as the changing of the guards at Syntagma Square, this stylish boutique hotel is quite impressive!

The eclectic decor seems to be inspired by the ancient Greek gods, as everything is white with gold accents, and it appears as though every detail has been carefully thought out from floor to ceiling. Our room on the 3rd and top floor of the boutique hotel was surprisingly quite spacious, as it included a bedroom, den (including a mini-fridge with complimentary water), washroom, and also a terrace which was almost as big as the suite itself (which is rare to find in a overpopulated city such as Athens).

Not only was the hotel impeccable and stunning to look at, I would also have to say that it was the most comfortable hotel stay I have ever had, as the bed was fitted with a high quality coco-mat mattress! The towels and robes were also coco-mat products, which just added the perfect touch to what was truly a luxurious stay. For the reasonable price of the room, you almost feel as though this hotel is just too good to be true!

The service provided by the staff is also 'top-notch' - definitely five star treatment! Unlike many hotels in Greece, there is a full-service 24-hour front desk/concierge available, and we found that there was always someone available to provide assistance with a smile. Yianni at the front desk was especially personable and made us feel at home. Additionally, the hotel provides complimentary buffet breakfast across the street at the 'Athens Diamond Hotel' each morning.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a high quality centrally-located hotel, with excellent service in Athens. Athens Diamond Plus, you are truly a hidden gem, and you have now set the bar quite high for my future visits to Athens!

We stayed in the Athens Diamond Plus for one night and overall enjoyed the stay.

The hotel is a short walk to Plaka district/Acropolis and is very close to Syntagma square which is great for catching the train back to the airport. The check in process was easy and is done across the road at the Athens Diamond hotel. We had a deluxe double room and although it was spacious and had the very white decor we expected it smelt very very strongly of cigarette smoke including all the bedding. Given we were only staying one night I didn't bother asking to change rooms however should our stay have been longer I would have wanted to. A buffet breakfast was included and there was a reasonable variety of food on offer for a hotel of this size.

Just checked out having spent 2 nights in a standard double- the last they had left. Very pleased with the helpful and friendly staff, from check in to breakfast and then checkout. Great location! The only thing missing was a little bar but there are so many around it didn't really matter. They supplied bottled water as a complimentary service which was very welcome in the heat! Some people on tripadvisor mentioned it was noisy. I have to say we were never disturbed and the hotel was full. Really reasonably priced and would absolutely go back again. Thank you for a lovely 2 days hosting us!!

First let me get the 800-pound gorilla out of the room first - there's absolutely no view from this hotel or its sister property, Athens Diamond Hotel. This was because the 2 hotels faces each other in close proximity across a narrow street and so what you see from your room would be the rooms of the other hotel and as the street's kind of narrow and not a scenic nor particularly interesting street at that, there's really nothing much to see.

Now that that's out of the way, everything else about the hotel, from location to comfort to cleanliness was really good. And the cleanliness really deserve a mentioning because I had never seen such ultra enthusiastic housekeeping ever! Each time I pass the corridor or something I would see the very efficient, housekeeping cleaning something and she seemed to really really enjoyed doing the cleaning (with a smile, humming a tune, etc...). And the fact that she managed to keep the whole Athens Diamond Plus property so white after all these years was really a testament to her skills. Bravo to that!

The hotel's setup was small but the great service really shines through. The buffet breakfast spread was also reasonably good and its location near Syntagma Square made getting around Athens a breeze.

If there's any complain, it would be that the drainage in the shower should be better - due to a lack of incline to channel the waste water to the drainage system, the shower areas got a little flooded each time I took a shower.

Having never been to Athens, I was a little nervous about where to book, and after much research found the Diamond Plus online. We were not disappointed.

Location wise, it is excellent, with easy acces to Syntagma Square and Plaka so everything was pretty much within walking distance.

The welcome was very friendly, and the rooms kept immaculately. Everything was white and spotless - even the mirrors in the lift had no smears/smudges - and the on cue lighting and music in it which started up on entry was great.

It was also one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in. The room was large and airy and we wanted for nothing. Given the relatively cheap price, this was excellent value for money.

Would recommend and stay here again.

We've stayed in Athens a few times and though we love every part of it we must say that the diamond plus had the greatest vantage point to all the areas we wanted to hit. The white rooms were spacious and clean with a balcony. The plus in the Diamond goes to Yiannis on the front desk. Your quick wit and shiny personality always made the information you gave priceless. He is one of the reasons we will be back. Shout out to Stephano the bell hop for looking after our things and the ladies at breakfast for your morning smiles. We hope this information falls into the right hands. Travel well.
