“Convenient and moderately priced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Stayed here twice for one night, arriving and departing Greece. Good reception, great room, the first night was overlooking the lighted Acropolis from the balcony.. Large bathroom. Breakfast was more than adequate, and open at 6am for early departures, even though the normal start is 6:30pm. Free Wifi, too.

Stayed May 2012, traveled with family

My wife and I were worried since some of the reviews about the hotel and the location were not great, but went into the backburner the moment we stepped into the hotel. The staff was courteous and friendly, they suggested sightseeing places, recommended means of transport and were all smiles.
The best part about Candia is the location: its a stone's throw from the metro, a 15 min walk from the archaeological museum and a similar distance from the inter-city bus station, esp if you wanna travel to Sounion for 6.30 Euros (one way)!
Our room was sparse but comfortable, had sufficient space to move around and for keeping belongings and luggage. The beds cound have been a little more comfortable.
Breakfast menu was the same daily: breads, eggs, bacon, juices, cereal, milk, tea, coffee... some variety here would have helped since we were there for 4 nights.
The back alleys / bylanes felt a little eerie, but I think it was only a feeling. As long as one sticks to the main roads, there's nothing to worry about in terms of safety.
Lastly, the elevators... could have been bigger.

Room Tip: Avoid the ones facing the main road or close to the elevators.

We stayed in Hotel Candia for four nights. Hotel Candia is located very close to a Metro station . The rooms are spacious, fairly modern, clean ,neat and well maintained. The staff were very courteous and helpful. Breakfast was very good and sumptuous. All in all , we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the hotel and in Athens too!

Last year,i spent two nights in Candia hotel and i must say that was more than good experience.I didn`t expect a lot,to be honest,because of many reviews i had read.Anyway,It is real city hotel with nice and clean rooms,balcony,free deposit box,huge bathrooms mirors and pretty good breakfast.More than important thing is its location-2 min.walk from nearest metro station which means that you can be ,within 10 min.in very center of Athens.Not to mention,legendary Greek hospitality!Great value for your money!

We have stayed at Candia Hotel in Athens January, 1-7, 2012. It is a nice economy class hotel. Good location, 1 minute walk from Metaxurgio metro station. 2-3 stops - and you are by Acropolis. We bought 1 week metro ticket for 14 euros. Nothing bad about the hotel. Very modest breakfast but it is a cheap place, not Ritz-Carlton! Nice old-style coffee pot for those who want to make real greek coffee... Very friendly people. I found the area around safe enough. Eventhough there is a bus station for Albanians close by where they pick up a coach to go to Tirana (25 Euros round trip). Day and night there is Albanian crowd waiting for their bus. You go through and that's it. I liked everything about the hotel, modest clean rooms, simple furniture, bathroom is ok. Athens itself and the area around the hotel seemed OK, nothing dangerous, no aged prostitutes, no drug dealers as it said in one of the stupid guide books. I have no idea why certain people wrote such a terrible impressions about this hotel.
