“Location & the staff make this place even better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

O&B is super. I find the room to be large compared to what I have found in Europe - the shower alone could fit four people. The staff is so friendly - both nights we had dinner out recommended by the front desk staff (for the 2nd night they made us a reservation at a place with a view of the Acropolis).

Breakfast is tasty... bed is comfy. Location is walking distance to everything we wanted to see!

Room Tip: Room 7 was our room.

The hotel is great, well located with good common areas and room. We felt very welcome from the first moment by the front desk staff and the experience continued throughout the stay from all staff. We felt that they went out of their way to make our trip special all the way.

We will definitely recommend O&B to anyone visiting Athens whether for business or pleasure!

I was looking for a hotel to stay in Athens just about outside the crowded Plaka but still near the must see places like the Acropolis. I came across this highly recommended hotel with high ratings in the trip advisor. I have experienced the excellent service, small yet clean and modern room, convenient access to shops, restaurants, the Acropolis and other nearby attractions, warm and friendly staff, nice breakfast to name a few. Needless to say, I have the same experience as with the people who stayed in this hotel. It is a good impression that will surely last during my stay in Athens.

I really put them through the hoops over at the O & B.

This was my first trip to Athens, and frankly, I did not quite understand how things worked. Needless to say there were a few miscommunications with the front desk staff. But what was most impressive about my stay at this small, lovely hotel just off the main drag, was the manner in which the staff helped to mature from a state of misunderstanding to one of slightly bewildered cultural acceptance. And that was priceless.

The Hotel.
Is set just off the main street of Athens (don't ask me to try to spell it -.) I loved the slight grit of the area - graffiti etc. - but I always felt entirely safe. I particularly liked that I could virtually walk to all of Athens main sights. There was another street nearby which was packed with tourists and restaurants and bars. Basically, the location is excellent. The ambiance of the hotel might be described as modern but warm. O & B - Ochre and Brown. My room was small but modern and efficient. The view: fantastic.

The Food.
Pretty good. Breakfast was simple but satisfying. A mix of traditional Greek and Western items were available at the buffet, along with a la carte options. I ordered room service twice. Both times it was very tasty.

The Staff.
This is where the hotel shines. I can't even begin to thank the people at the front desk enough. From car transfers to laundry and shipping advice, they were always prepared to go out of their way to help. But most importantly, help came with a service. I walked into the hotel and was asked how I was. And, even if they weren't, the askers seemed sincere.

The Bottom Line.
Modern yet Comfortable. Great Location. Food to fill. And a staff that cares. What more could you really want.

Spent two nights in Athens after a week in Santorini. The hotel is in a great (yet, a bit rundown) location right next to the Acropolis and other Athens sites. Very close to other Athens neighborhoods as well. Great breakfast and friendly staff.

Only downside is that the rooms are tiny, even compared to NY standards. And the tv is nothing more than a PC screen.

Room Tip: Make sure you pick a room facing the back.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is fantastic. It's on a quiet street yet so close to Plaka which is the told town where there are some great bars and restaurants. The hotel itself was really lovely. Very modern, spacious and beautiful rooms and extremely clean. The bathroom was massive and had all the facilities that you get in a 5 star hotel. The breakfast was really great with lots of variety in cold and hot stuff. They make you fresh eggs of any kind you like if that is your thing. The staff were super friendly and helpful. We loved it and highly recommend it.
