The hotel Dore is situated in a residential area not too far from the center of Athens. The closest metro station is Victoria Station and that is a good 15-20 minute walk. The area has some graffiti as 2010 Athens was faced with a political turmoil. The Area is known as Kipseli and the hotel is ½ a block away from Fikionos Negri which offers a lot of coffee houses, some places to eat and places to sit out at night and watch the people go by while you are having ice cream or coffee or a drink.
The Property is small, offers only 24 rooms. Very very clean! Please do not expect luxury. The rooms can be on the small side but I also saw our other 3 rooms which were very large. The exterior rooms tend to have natural light. The fortunate are nice, the beds have good mattresses but the beddings we clean, pressed a bit tired, but very very white! Good pillows, small TV’s and as you probably know Greek TV as European TV is not worth watching, the Greek TV had couple English channels and you can watch a old movie late at night. The bathrooms are all new, offering nice showers, clear clean and clean, it’s really amazing.
The staff at the hotel as very nice and they always make you feel welcome.
The hotel offers a breakfast but I must say it’s not good. They will be re-opening a restaurant and perhaps things change then, for now, walk 30 meters to the square get a breakfast and coffee there.
Overall a great value, safe, clean, family oriented and a nice place to stay without spending a fortune. I stayed there twice, 2 nights and 1 night, it was 8 of us, 4 rooms. I will be going back!
