“The best breakfast on the planet bar none”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

On my honey moon I was here for the first 2 days and loved every second. The neighborhood is great and I live in china so chicky burger across the street was awesome it's red robin caliber burgers and variety. It's about a ten minute walk to the subway. I spent the last part of my honey moon in the plaka and I deeply regret it. It's great being in the plaka and I wanted my honeymoon to go perfect but I would just of stayed here. I have eaten the best breakfast buffets in the world bar none best breakfast buffet

Stayed for 2 nights, staff polite and helpful, good location, nice rooms, fair pricing for the room, breakfast adequate, good choice for the city of Athens price quality location wise. The hotel is located on a busy road which means some noise maybe depending on the room but good access to mass transport and easy to find if a tourist on the city

Rooms are a bit old,large and clean, breakfast is excellent, staff is helpful - but wi-fi is terrible. Unusable ! Rooms facing main street are very noisy. I could not sleep at all first night, I had to change room. If you need internet access in the evening - avoid this hotel ! If you do not need internet - hotel is OK. Be aware also, some taxi drivers in Athens will try to cheat you even if they are from official taxi service called from hotel. I had very bad experience. I took the same route each day, sometimes price was doubled !!!

Room Tip: Ask for room not facing main street.

Excellent excellent causy hotel in Athens. Although we have stayed in several hotels in Athens and although The Hilton is a gold standard this hotel is friendly, quite, beautiful, nice staff, family friendly, clean etc etc and has NO DISADVANTAGE that makes it always a great choise. Nice breakfast with variety of coffee to chose and also nice menu for dining : our daughter really enjoyed the chicken soup..As for the room we had a three-bed room which was really spacious with spacious bathroom and spacious verandah. The matress was excellent and the main bed was queen size really enormous, could sleep 3 persons comfortably... Generally we always feel at home in this hotel. Ok only one thing you have to take a little walk to reach the metro station but taxis are cheap enough..

My husband and I stayed at the Stratos Vassilikos while visiting Athens in September. The hotel is quite far from the main attractions and sites of Athens, but it is about a ten minute walk to the metro station. We took the metro everyday, sometimes twice a day, and it was very convenient. The hotel itself is nice, just average. The staff was helpful. We were annoyed with the fact that they would not provide us an iron for our clothes. If we wanted wrinkle-free garments, we would have to use their laundry service, which was outrageously priced (6E per shirt!). The room was again, average, but it was clean and modern. The bathroom was large and allowed us both to get ready at the same time. We were given a great Greek breafast buffet every morning, which was delicious. If we were to return to Athens, we would definitely try to stay closer to the action, but this hotel was okay.

Dear MeganL,

Thank you for your review written on TripAdvisor.

We are delighted to hear that in general your stay with us was enjoyable.
Concerning your comments about the laundry service, we would like to inform you that for safety reasons, the hotel avoids to provide irons to its guests - thus laundry service is available. The price for ironing a shirt is 3euros and not 6 euros.
Additionally, there is a trouser press in every room.
We look forward to welcoming you back for a future stay in Airotel Stratos Vassilikos Hotel.

Kind Regards,

Theodoros Evangelopoulos

I recently stayed in this hotel whilst on a business trip. We didn't arrive until late at night, but the staff were very welcoming and helpful.
The hotel is beautifully decorated. I had a surprisingly spacious room on the 3rd floor, which was very clean and had the most comfortable mattress that I've slept on away from home.
The breakfast was incredibly varied, with fresh fruit, pastries, cold meats, selection of cooked foods and a wide selection of drinks, including wine!
It is well located 5 mins walk from the metro and is about 30 mins walk from the centre of Athens. Taxis are incredibly reasonable in Athens, although the driving can be a bit hairy! We visited lots of lovely bars and restaurants within 10 mins walk of the hotel.
This really is a special place and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a decently priced hotel in Athens.

Room Tip: My 3rd floor room was bigger than my colleague's first floor room

The Stratos Vassilikos was a welcome place to land after a bad hotel in Mykonos. There are many positives - the rooms were clean, the food was good, the staff was friendly, and overall we had a great experience. For European hotels, which definitely don't have the comforts of the states, this was a higher end property in my opinion. Don't let the fabric walls in the lobby throw you off when you first walk in - really, fabric walls.

The only two critiques are: it is located about half a mile from the nearest metro, but a walk is always a good thing. The wifi is weak at best. This hotel is located in a residential area, so there are no restaurants, bars, or tourist activities of any kind. You will have to take the metro one stop to Syntagma Square to access the Plaka.

Metro tip from this hotel. To go to the action, go towards "Egaleo" and get off at Syntagma Square, or change lines later to go to the Acropolis. To get back to the Stratos, go towards "Airport" and get off at Megaro Missikis.

Room Tip: Higher floor is always better.
