“Had a reservation and turned away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

My husband and I booked at the Adams hotel for one night on the way back from the Islands before our early morning flight back to the states. When we arrived at the hotel on the afternoon of our check-in, we were told that we could not be accommodated and were walked a few blocks away to another hotel. The other hotel was satisfactory, although hard to compare since we never got to see the Adams room (it was however ranked slightly lower than Adams on tripadvisor). More than that it was frustrating that we had spent time researching hotels in advance only to be turned away and left without much of a choice where to stay. Not only that, when we returned home we received a notice of a "no-show" fee from Adams in the full amount of the reservation. Still trying to get that resolved!

Stayed in August 2014 as a couple. First of all we'll start with the good points. Location is great being close to the major tourist attractions and loads of places to eat. Service was really friendly and wifi was great.

Now to the more disappointing components. Room wasn't that clean; it was quite dusty as well. Had to hold the shower head in order to wash ourselves as there wasn't any place for it to sit on the wall so this got pretty annoying in a very small bathroom. Our air con unit started leaking water on our last night there so we decided not to risk any further leakage and left the air con off even though the person at reception tried to fix it. Definitely wouldn't stay here again - would probably pay a bit more for somewhere nicer.

We booked this hotel online and what a choice.! This is amazingly placed in the Plaka just a short 100 mtrs from the most spectacular view of the Acropolis. The family who own and run this hotel are gracious, caring people and their staff are always helpful even with limited to no english. The accommodation itself though not spacious is more than adequate with en-suites to each room. All are air conditioned and very comfortable. We highly recommend this gem in the heart of the Plaka. We will return.......

Room Tip: All rooms are good but try and book one with a balcony. The area is very quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

We stayed at Adams Hotel for 3 nights late July. We reserved two rooms for 2 adults and 4 children. Unlike other hotels where we would have likely had to book 3 rooms or 2 rooms for 3 people this was best option for us and not easy to find. The location really was great. Although public transportation in Athens is fine this allowed us to stay out late in the evening and easy to walk back quickly. The rooms were fine. Our adult room for 2 had the view of Acropolis and nice balcony. The room was small but functional and had everything we needed. The bathroom was actually pretty nice. The room for 4 was more basic but again was just fine. It is not a luxury but I would not compare it to hostel. The breakfast was basic but sufficient. I think it should have been included in the cost of the hotel but out of convenience we took adventage of this option. The staff was helpful overall, not overlly friendly but certainly pleasant. I have no complains about anything. I would stay here again if I return to Athens.

The only good thing about this hotel is its location. In the heart of Plaka, it is a short walk to the Acropolis, Syntagma Square and Monastiraki. However, the actual hotel was bad. One of the mattresses of the beds in our room kept sliding onto the floor and toilet door doesn't shut properly. I'm not sure if this was just with our room, but if we needed a shower, we had to hold it, as there was nothing holding it up on the wall. I would not stay here again.

I can't believe that people had good things to say about this hotel. It reminded me of fawlty towers -the guy at the desk was rude, the lady was always on the phone and there was a sidekick that did most of the work like Manuel!! The only good thing about it was its location. So bad that we left a day early. Definitely not recommended

This hotel was much more than I expected. I was pleasantly surprised with the room itself, and although small, it was very suitable and included a balcony, great aircon and a reasonably sized bathroom! The wifi here was exceptionally good and the best I've had in a hotel in Europe so far. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was great - in the Plaka but a very close walk to everything from tourist shops, main shops, restaurants and the Acropolis. I would happily stay here again!
