“Great adjoining rooms, fast wifi, helpful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

We spent two nights here after our cruise. The only negative thing is that the little candies at the front desk are not very good - well, if you enjoy Sen Sen, then, I suppose you'd disagree.

Anyway, we had a room(s) at the end of the hall which were sort of joined. Our son loved having his own room and bathroom (and TV). The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the location is great to walk to the Plaka and elsewhere for tourists.

Breakfast was good - especially the nifty orange juice squeezer machine! We also enjoyed the view from the pool very much.

Breakfast was included in room price and was very good. Reception staff varied- we spoke with a very helpful and polite young lady but also a man who didn't really seem to care. Location looks a bit dodgy but is actually well positioned to bars and restaurants. Good rooftop bar! And comfortable bed! We could see the Acropolis from our balcony (7th floor) which was a bonus.

Fresh Hotel, Athens is an excellent, modern, comfortable and clean property. The bedroom is on the small side but more than adequate and is well furnished (including minibar), with a comfortable large double bed and ample space for clothes necessary for five days. The bathroom was spotless, has a large shower cubicle and room for storing washing accessories on the dresser surrounding the basin. Free wifi is available in bedrooms and throughout the property. There is a well-equipped fitness center in the hotel open daily until 22:00. There is a rooftop swimming poll that is open only in the summer months. A delicious and rich breakfast is served in the rooftop restaurant which has a direct panoramic view of Athens and the Acropolis. The hotel staff are very friendly, most helpful and always ready to answer all queries. The hotel is well situated very near the center of Athens and many of the major tourist attractions are within walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the main road are fine and well soundproofed. For extra charge larger rooms are av...

Stay here. This hotel was amazing, the staff were polite and well trained, the food was amazing, but that all doesnt matter, what matters is the rooms.

When I stayed here I splurged and took a suit and it was perfect, these rooms are works of art, if youw ante a stay that you will remember stay here, its a great peice fo art. Though I have to admit, I banged my head a couple times on the odd shapes of the desk overhead cupboards. The bathroom is amazing, only negative about the room is that the carpet is slippery and the AC could be stronger.

The location is a problem, its a...transitional neighborhood in the middle of athens, but it will give you a genuine athenian feel. If you are an older couple or person you might want to stay somewhere else, but for young people, or people looking for an edgy hotel stay stay stay.

Its worth staying in just to experience the hotel itself.

Room Tip: High up, its in a transitional place (Its the ghetto), so could get nosy/nerve wracking lower down.

My mother (46), sister (13) and I (25) stayed here in July for 2 nights, I must say that the hotel itself was great, the staff was friendly and very helpful. We were allowed to check in early and even gifted a room upgrade. Everything looks just as pictured and was clean and well kept. Of course we went to explore the terrace and were greeted with ice cold wash cloths which were fully welcomed in the July heat. The pool was small but efficiently placed as were the loungers. It didn't hurt that we had a view of the acropolis as well. After checking out the grounds and a quick nap we set off to explore. Some of the streets weren't the prettiest but it is Athens after all, even Italy had its eyesores. What was important was that we never felt unsafe. It's an easy walk to everything if you're up to it, the metro is also close by, or you could always request a cab. We chose to walk most times as we like to explore. The breakfast provided here was very good with a very wide selection. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this hotel. We would definitely stay here again on a return trip.
