“Excellent value and well located”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

The killer feature for this hotel is the rooftop bar with stunning views of the Acropolis.
And then there is the hotel. Close to the centre of Athens, a short walk to Parlimment sq, metro, Plakas markets. An easy walk to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. Plenty of local restaurants and bars at varying prices.
Staff are friendly and helpful. On last day we had to leave before breakfast but coffee and cakes were available
Hotel is clean and modern as are the rooms. Wi fi works well (but appears to time out after a period of inactivity). Computers and printer available in common area.
Breakfast is a generous, varied buffet.

Thank you for your “mobile” review on our hotel and your nice comments. We like technology and we consider it important so we try to provide services like free wifi and computer and printer access for our customers when they are not out enjoying our central location for a walk. The Parliament square, Plaka area, Acropolis museum, tavernas, restaurants, nice bars are so close. It will be a pleasure to see you back soon to enjoy the stunning view to the Acropolis from Thea Terrace Bar.

Nothing blows you away when you first walk in, but this place really succeeds on all levels. Great location, great breakfast buffet, superb rooftop view of the acropolis. The room is small, as is the bathroom, but everything is very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

I stayed in a room solo and it was just an oasis to have such a nice room to myself after nearly 3 weeks of being on the road in Turkey. I remember sleeping so well, there is no noise (that could hear) from my room (I was on the 2nd floor, I think 214 if I remember correctly). My first night I was so tied, I just stayed in and enjoyed the hotel (sadly, I only had energy to do just that my first night, but the room and balcony was so nice, I didn't mind.) Bathroom and amenities were good, room has a safebox, balcony has cute view of narrow street, and walking to the restaurants in Plaka is very close.

Also, you are about 8 minutes from the Syntagma Train station. Breakfast in the morning is pretty good, reception is very responsive, free wifi in rooms, and maybe it was just being alone in the room, but I had a lot of space to throw/unpack my stuff everywhere (it was great until I had to re-pack and leave).

Anyway, I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. If I return to Athens, I am definitely going to try to book a room here again.

As everyone says, the location is very good albeit the street is quite narrow and not that easy to wheel luggage along. Great roof top bar with great views and a nice spa/jacuzzi to relax in. Only a short walk from the main square where you can catch the hop on hop off bases and Los only a short walk to the Plaka shopping/restaurant area. Great value for money.

Thank you very much for your review on Central Athens Hotel. Our location is very convenient for someone who wants to visit Athens attractions on foot. And after a nice walking tour we always recommend to visit the Jacuzzi next to Thea Terrace Bar to relax and admire the view with a nice glass of Greek wine. Come back soon to enjoy it, again since as and you say Central Athens is a great value for money hotel!

Very good breakfast selection. Good meze to share on the rooftop and a barmaid who will take great photos.Friendly helpful staff

The rooms are rather small, but other than that the place had a fabulous roof top terrace overlooking the Parthenon, a nice breakfast buffet that had something for all taste buds and was very centrally located. And the price could not be beat.
