“A Good Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Location is everything and this hotel cannot be better placed, being in the heart of Plaka. If you are looking for a good budget-conscious booking you can't go wrong. We booked two family rooms; one had two separate bedrooms the other had two beds in a small room off the door, but was offset by an enormous veranda with great views. The bathrooms are tired but work. Breakfast was fine; there was plenty and the Greek yoghurt and honey was to die for. Certainly would recommend.

Adams hotel - Athens
Great location.
The hotel has an excellent central location in Plaka, however my taxi driver found it difficult to find as it is amongst the labyrinth of streets of Plaka. I was staying here with some family, there were 6 of us in total. My family arrived first earlier in the day and I arrived at about 10 in the evening. Upon arrival I fell up the stairs and the man attending the reception desk just looked at me and didn't do anything to help me at all. I told him I was with the party of 6, to which he said your family are out and I don't know which room you are in, so you'll have to wait for them to get back before I can let you in. I asked if we could look in the three rooms and just see which one was empty, but he said no. All I wanted was a shower after my long journey, and it was only after I made the effort to contact my relatives that they came back and I could get into the room.
The room itself was perfectly functional, the bed was comfortable, clean bed linen, air con. The bathroom was very tiny, but the shower worked, so was fine.
The lady that was on reception was very friendly and helpful, she helped us get a minibus down to Lavrion for the following day and was generally nice and chatty, asking where we were from and if we needed any help with knowing what to see where to eat etc.
The breakfast was ok, consisting of a continental style.
In the second evening, the night receptionist was again quite rude, he asked us to 'move {out of the foyer}, I'm trying to work', also later we went for dinner and popped back to the hotel,(The door was at this time locked and so he had to come and open it for guests), we wanted to go out for a few drinks and he was very persistent in asking when we would be back and it was a massive inconvenience for him to have to open the door for us.
All in all, the hotel was perfectly functional, in an excellent area, the daytime reception lady was lovely, but the night receptionist left a lot to be desired in the customer service area. Definitely good value for money in comparison to a lot of others in the area.

We were really impressed with this tourist level hotel. It's right in the Plaka (but the quiet part of the Plaka). Our room also came with a great acropolis view. The rate was around $80 per night. The breakfast was also included, and not bad. For the price, this place can't be beat.

Adam's Hotel was just right and easy to find; quiet yet in the heart of Plaka. We had a corner room which was terrific – two large windows and a nice balcony. Breakfast was very good with homemade yogurt, and the breakfast room is sunny and welcoming. The rooms and the lift are small and while there is nothing impressive about this hotel, everything was clean and fine and the price was right. So if you want an excellent fun neighborhood, close to the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum and other sites, and you are watching expenses, this is a good choice.
It's an easy downhill walk from the airport-bus stop in Syntagma. Just walk down Amalias and turn right on Thalou (just before Hadrian's arch). Walk two short blocks in and it's on the corner.

Room Tip: We loved our corner room.

The location is great, so close to everything and we had a lovely view of the Acropolis. It's an easy train ride from the airport. The hotel facilities are basic and it's an older style building. We had a double bed which was fine but the mattress wasn't very comfortable. I think if the hotel replaced the mattress then our stay would have been much better. Overall it's a good place to stay in Athens and within walking distance to most things.

We stayed at this hotel for a few nights at the beginning of our trip to Greece. The hotel was in a great location, it was in the plaka district which is near all the little shops and within walking distance of the Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, Ancient Agora, Hadrian's arch as well as the downtown garden/park area. The hotel was clean, well kept. Breakfast was not included in the price, but with all the great restaurants around, it really wasn't necessary. The bed was decent, there was a lot of room in the room. There were two beds as well as an extra cot. The bathroom was in good shape. There was a little balcony off the room, it didn't really have any view but it was nice to sit out and overlook the streets. It was a bit noisy in the early evening with the cars driving by but we were on the second floor, so upstairs may be better. The staff were friendly and helpful.
