I booked this hotel for a number of reasons ..... it was close to the 2 main Metro stations as we were arriving by ferry and departing from the airport ; it was in the busy and tourist friendly Plaka area ; it was convenient for the Acropolis ; and it had a rooftop terrace bar with night-time views of the Acropolis .
It worked out to be a perfect choice for us , and I would have no hesitation in recommending the Central Hotel for the above reasons . I would certainly stay there again .
Its not easy to find the hotel and so I would strongly advise everyone to have a detailed street map all prepared for your arrival , or take a taxi . Street names are not always in English .
Checking in at reception was quick and the staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay .
The room was quite spacious , but it was very basic and in line with 3 star standards . It looked out over other rooms in the hotel which was a bit of a negative . Despite this it had all the normal facilities including fridge , TV with some English news channels , safe , air con . At night it was very quiet and we slept well .
The top floor terrace bar was fantastic at night overlooking the Acropolis which is all lit up . But make sure you get up there by about 8pm as it gets very busy and tables may not be available after dark .
The small lift which only takes 3 adults is an irritation which you just have to accept , and breakfast is a buffet which is a bit limited .
Overall its good value for money hotel in a perfect location , with a fabulous terrace bar .
