“Peace and Quiet in a Big City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2008

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 2 days in April prior to a cruise. The hotel is very modern, extremely clean and most important for tired travelers QUIET. The hotel is well located to all the major attractions and the Metro system. The staff is excellant and was always eager to assist . What a great find!!

I booked our stay at the Ochre and Brown based on reviews on Trip Advisor and also because it was written up in the Athens Wallpaper City Guide. We stayed our first night in the Hilton (because we had points for a free night's stay) and our second night at the O&B. The O&B in my opinion was far superior. Okay - it did not have a swimming pool, gym or the scenic Galaxy Bar. Nonetheless, the rooms were actually cleaner, the hotel staff MUCH friendlier, and the location even better. I like the feel of small boutique hotels. When we arrived, the staff was aware that it was our honeymoon and went to the trouble to prepare the room with 2 glasses of white wine. We stayed in a room with a view of the Observatory. Although it was a smaller room, the bed was comfortable, the room clean and comfortable and the bathroom was amazing! the best showerhead in the world!! The breakfast (included) was excellent - you could choose from many different options. (no breakfast included at the Hilton).
We loved this hotel!

Without a doubt the friendliest hotel I've ever stayed at. A lovely room with a view of the Acropolis hill and Athens rooftops. Nice size, very well furnished and a great bathroom.

Thanks to the young man at breakfast I now know how to properly steam milk for cappuccino. We were greeted, helped to our room, given instructions for things happening, and how to get around.

The location is half a block from the entertainment district, and two blocks from antiquities. Never a problem walking, even late at night. Close to the metro. And an hour before we were to leave on Sunday afternoon, with our room safe locked, they tracked down the engineer on his day off to find out how to get it open so we could retrieve our passports.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in September 2007. The hotel is located in an "interesting" part of Athens and can be a little difficult to find but that should not put you off. The area is not bad, and it is an easy 5-10 minute walk to the tourist centre of Athens and about a 5 minute walk from the subway. The reception staff were very good (friendly and professional) and the public areas of the hotel (while small) are very well set out and decorated. The rooms are very well appointed (flat screen TV, DVD played etc, etc) and very clean but they are quite small which should not be a problem if you are planning to spend your time site-seeing. The bathroom was very nice and very clean. We had breakfast at the hotel which was superb. Meals are made to order, from fresh ingredients and it was excellent. Finally, our flight was not until quite late in the evening on our checkout day and when we asked for a late check-out this was not a problem for the staff which topped off a great stay. I would not hesitiate to recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Athens.

Although initially a bit tricky to find, this boutique hotel is extremely well located in a lively part of Athens. With very comfortable rooms, a big bed and modern, smart bathroom the really great thing is the absolutely charming and helpful young staff.
With my bags missing (Terminal 5 of course!) they were sympathetic and provided emergency toiletries and advice. They were happy to allow late check out and agreed to look after my bag if it arrived whilst I was in Corfu on business.
The resturant is low key but the breakfast was beautifully presented and fresh: freshly baked rolls, yogurt with fresh fruits, freshly squeezed organges, good cappucino.
I would certainly stay at O&B again.

My husband and I truly loved our stay at O&B. The location was great, the hotel itself charming and the attention to detail in service communicated luxury. Unlike other boutique hotels, there was no snobbery and everyone was friendly and eager to help. Our breakfast was included in the rate - it was delicious and plentiful. All breads are baked on the premises.

We are well-travelled NY-ers and are rather picky, but O&B really impressed us. Definitely go stay there!

If it's your first time in Athens, beware that it's a dirty city (even post-Olympics '04) so don't be put off by the hotel's surroundings.

FYI - O&B purchased a building next door and will be doubling its capacity in the future.

We stayed at this hotel over the Easter weekend. The staff were absolutely lovely. The room was a good size (for a boutique hotel), bed was very big and very comfortable with firm pillows which I personlly prefer. The bathroom was big with a great shower that drilled holes in your head. The breakfasts were freshly prepared and personally served and were included in our rate which was even better. The hotel is in a small street which is fairly busy (meaning that there is some steet noise) and just around the corner from the Thissios tube station and from Psiri which is full of small bars and restaurants catering to locals. It has a real buzz with a great choice of places to go for food and drinks without paying Plaka prices. On a sunday the athens flea market can be found right outside and goes on for the next few streets selling everything from junk to beautiful antique furniture. I would recommend this hotel to any one looking for stylish accomodation.
