4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

Nice and clean, the staff is excellent, they provide helpful tips all the time, the location is probably the best in Athens. We used Dimitris for traveling, the best you can have, extremely friendly person and never rush and is always in time.
Hotel receptionist Jasmin and Andreas are great, better will be hard to find. Hope to see you soon

This was my first time in Athens, and I found that the Hotel Acropolis House which is located in the Plaka district was the perfect location for someone who likes to walk. Jasmine and Andreas were always cheerfully ready to help at the front desk, and all of the staff were exceptionally kind and friendly. You got the feeling that there was nothing that they wouldn't do for you if you just asked. The hotel is old, but it was immaculately clean, and it was an exceptional bargain since it also included breakfast. There was a computer available in the front sitting room for those of us who do not travel with internet capability. If you don't mind the walk-up, you can get a room on the 4th floor where you have a splendid view of the Acropolis, and it is really quite spectacular at night. The Hotel Acropolis House is a hidden gem with fantastic staff.

Room Tip: Top floor has a view of the Acropolis, but the hotel is a walk-up; so you need to be ready for the s...

We stayed but briefly but would love to stay again. The hotel was a real find with lots of character and charm. Room was small but clean and comfortable. The air con worked well but was noisy throughout the night. Breakfast was interesting, slightly unusual but Jasmine was a real treat! Very helpful with personality plus! The location was great and we would definitely recommend staying here.

This little hotel is the greatest. The front desk staff were outstanding and their service was exquisite. We could not have been happier with their knowledge, caring, and ability to be helpful! It is located in the Plaka within walking distance of most of the historic sites.

I chose the hotel because of the location, it is close to the X95 bus station, about 8-10 mins' walking. However, the room is too old and out-dated (I guess it has not been renovated for at least 15 or 20 years?), I hate to say this, but this is the oldest hotel I have ever stayed. The bathroom is so small that I can barely turn around (I'm a girl of small size). The air-conditioner is so noisy that I can not sleep well (very old model). The hotel really really needs update and renovation.
I am surprised why this hotel gets a high score in tripadviosr. Actually I have paid lower price for another much better hotel in Acropolis area, and chose Acropolis House for return trip just because we need to catch bus to x95.
If you only care about location and nothing else, chose this hotel. Otherwise think twice.

I stayed at the Acropolis for the second time when I visited Athens during my 75th birthday celebration. The hotel is fine. Clean. Safe. Not American/corporate. People you meet at breakfast are the kind of people you'd like to hang out with all day, but you can't ---- because you want to get out and about and see the museums and have some wonderful Greek food and ouzo. Jasmine will help you decide where to get the best food and how to get to the museum or wherever you want to go. And help you with the essential Greek phrases. "Fair eees tow."
