“Amazing hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

It was the first time that we visited this small Athenian hotel! We always prefer to stay in small boutique size hotels than larger one's. We love the focused service. The staff was excwellent and really kind. The same goes for our other choice of hotel in Mykonos. I think Greek hospitality is really good.
The breakfast that was included in the rate was very well presented and delicious.
The hotel is in the center of Athens and is really well located.
You can't go wrong with that.
The plus for this hotel is it's service.

Room Tip: rooms facing Acropolis!

The service was excellent and we were made to feel very welcome. The roof top bar and restaurant was lovely and we had an excellent meal at a reasonable price for a city centre hotel. Not the greatest location but right next to bus stop 15 for the hop on hop off sightseeing bus.

The staff were great. Always available and had great recommendations and all around customer service. Rooms were very clean and modern, I loved the decor. The location was within walking distance of good shopping and cute restaurants, and we were able to walk to the Acropolis, and the stadium, Temple of Zeuss, and many other sites. I would strongly recommend this hotel. The complimentary breakfast was delicious, and complimentary wifi was a nice touch.

Although we heard that the hotel location was a bit shady, we didn’t feel that way about it at all. We were 6 friends (3 girls/3 guys) and we felt safe walking in the neighborhood at night. The hotel itself is nice and clean and well kept. I would recommend it as I thought the location was very good too. It was relatively central to all of the main parts. The rooms were very trendy and had good space for your luggage, which we were impressed with as European hotels usually don’t have space. A shower curtain or a longer wall for the shower would have been helpful so that we didn’t flood our bathroom floor every time we showered!
The morning breakfast was great. I definitely recommend you buy the breakfast package.
Their rooftop is cute. You have a nice view of the Parthenon and of the city in general.
All in all, I would recommend this hotel and I would stay here again.
Now, some hints about Athens itself – I personally think that you only need 1 day here unless you are interested in Greek mythology. If you have an interest in the Greek gods then you can stay here for much longer. For us, however, we didn’t think there was all that much to do in Athens. We saw the Akropolis and climbed up to the Partenon, visited the Akropolis museum, saw the Parliament, visited the Olympic stadium, and saw the other main sights. It can easily be done in a day, to be honest!
In the evenings we ate by the Monastiraki square which I don’t recommend..very touristy food…like times square. We had lunch at the restaurant that is next door to Daphne’s which was delicious. Although we didn’t get to eat at Daphne’s we heard it was very good. We had a great Mexican meal at Meson El Mirador which you must check out too. We went out to some bars in Gazi which were fun but kind of college-y. All in all Athens was not the highlight of our trip which involved Santorini and Mykonos too.

Top marks for service and location. Lovely contemporary, clean and nicely designed rooms. The rooftop bar and retauraunt is fabulous. Watching the sun go down over Athens, sipping cocktails was a truly memorable experience. Super friendly staff. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The service at Fresh Hotel earned top marks. The people working reception were always available for great dinner recommendations. The servers very attentive. Great pool and rooftop. The breakfast was great. The fresh orange juice was so FRESH and delicious. The gym was fine. The neighborhood was totally sketchy, almost every cab driver cautiioned us to take care of the area. But, cabs were easy to come by and I felt comfortable walking around during the day. The rooms are tiny.

Room Tip: Wifi does not work in every room, so inquire at check in.
