“Hotel at the heart of Athens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed for five nights in a private room at the Adams Hotel in Athens. The hotel is within walking distance of the Metro and the ancient Acropolis site. There are a number of really good coffee shops and bistros in the vicinity. The area was really safe to walk around at late night. My private ensuite room was very comfortable, clean and well serviced. The old woman who services the rooms is a really wonderful and caring person. Breakfast too was very reasonable. WiFi signal strong and available 24 hours everyday. This is certainly a good hotel for a budget traveller who still wants quality service.

Stayed December 2014, traveled solo

First, the location is great. Right by a small Plaza in at the edge of Plaka. 2 min walk to restaurants and shops, but still very quit and calm. The hotel itself is fairly old and our room was small and very basic. However, the lobby, the breakfast room and our room had a faded charm with nice details in the decoration that was quite charming. The staff was helpful and the breakfast buffet was good. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who cares more about the location then the amenities of the hotel. The prices are higher in Athens in general then the rest of the places we visited in Greece so I guess the price was sort of reasonable.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and we are group of 3. The hotel is very close to the sites. Its just 4 mins from acropolis museum and temple of zeus on the other side. We did not took the city tour bus as this hotel is close to almost all the spots. We took metro from airport and get down in acropolis station like 5 mins from this hotel. Hotel is excellent! Clean. Good breakfast. 24 Wifi. Location. Reception. Its value for money.

Its a budget hotel but value for money considering the location, right next to Plaka area and walking distance for almost every attraction.

Room, Bathroom, Bed and Breakfast was fine considering the cost. Please note that its a budget hotel so dont expect luxury.

If you want to stay in a great location with tight budget then this hotel is definitely recommended.

Room Tip: We were on 1st floor so nothing special but I think rooms at top floors has good view so see if you...

We stayed there is October 2014 and the experience was not good at all. First when we checked in we were made to pay an additional 20 euros for the fact that the lady at reception said that we had reservation only for one person whereas I showed her the booking page which said 1 double room with no mention of number of guests. We tried to check in early but the room wasnt ready so we left our bags at the reception and roamed around till our check in time. As soon as we entered our room there was a horrofic bleach odour in the tiny room (believe me when I say tiny). The room looked clean. Then when we saw the bathroom we were shocked ! Exactly 4 × 4 size bathroom with 2 x 2 area for shower. The towels which had a strong bleach smell had the name of a different hotel and were not rinsed properly as when we used those towels our skins started burning cause of the bleach. We were only there for a night but would pay a little extra and get another room in the same hotel. Also dont expect any service as the only person taking care of the hotel is the lady at the reception, so you need to do all the luggage lifting. Noone to guide you to your room in the dark hotel building

We knew this was a basic hotel when we booked it, but because of its location went ahead. We read other reviews, noting that it seemed pretty basic, but clean. But, we're sorry we booked it now, as we had to leave after spending just 3 out of the 6 nights we had booked there. We weren't impressed by the level of cleanliness, it seemed grubby and there was dust on the furniture,which had obviously been there for some time. But, we made allowances for this, and thought that as it was central, if everything else was ok,that wouldn't have put us off. On the first night, I was bitten by insects. At first, we put it down to bad luck. When the same thing happened on night 2, and I woke up with more bite marks, and intense burning and itching, we asked the lady we thought was one of the owners to change the bedding, when we returned in the afternoon, to find her busy making the bed, with all of the same bedding. I'd already shown the Receptionist a number of insect bites that morning, and asked for the bedding to be changed. At that point, she gave us a mosquito plug, and did at least seem to be trying to help. By this time, we had already bought our own, plus fly spray, and insect spray. The lady making the bed just carried on, ignored my request for a change of bedding, and asked us to leave the room until she had finished! As with the receptionist, I explained and showed her several bites, which she ignored, coming back minutes later with a used tube of beauty cream, which she handed to me. By that point, our feelings about the hotel, and relationship with the staff had gone down. We felt let down by them, and they obviously thought we were just moaning. On night 3, I was bitten again, and by this time, had bites all over my body. The next morning, the older lady, who we think was one of the owners, asked how I was, but as soon as I showed her more bites, she simply walked off, without any comment. By now, we knew our holiday was going to be ruined if we stayed, so cut our losses and booked in to a different hotel. The new hotel wasn't an expensive option, (except for the fact, that it was an unforeseen expense), but from the minute we arrived, it looked, and just was, very much cleaner. After leaving the Adams Hotel, I didn't have any more insect bites,and we got in with our holiday. Yes, we had to pay more, but the move saved our holiday. Sorry, but just could not recommend this place. It is reasonably priced and quite basic, which is what we thought we were getting. But, it should also clean, and fit to sleep in. The main positive, apart from the fact of leaving, was that the Receptionist was obviously surprised when we checked out ahead of time, and she offered to arrange a taxi, which we accepted,and were grateful for.

Room Tip: Sorry, but while we accept some travellers have really enjoyed staying here, we couldn't recomme...

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!
