“Cheap hotel in an excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I was here in a family trip and to be honest we chose it because of the location and low price. I must say it was not disappointing at all, the kids liked the room and the location was excellent in the popular Syntagma Square. The staff was very friendly and speaking very good English as usual in Greece.

The worst part was the breakfast, which was very basic and average to low quality. Also, the the room is very basic, but it is OK for a 1-2 nights stay in the city specially if you are most of the day out strolling through and visiting the city. The place is clean but do not expect much more than a clean room, a friendly staff and a good location, because other services or common areas are non-existing. In any case, isn't that what most people look for in a hotel?

Nice but basic hotel. Clean rooms and basic breakfast. Very friendly and helpfull personal.
It's located near the big square opposite the Parliament and therefore an ideal base for checking all attractions out.
Note that almost all attractions like the Acropolis have free entrance during the winter season.

We stayed for three nightts at the Pan Hotel, it is only three star so the rooms are pretty basic but good and clean, the staff are friendly and the breakfast very simple but the hotel is located just off Syntagma Square on Mitropoleos Street which runs right on down to Monastikeraki where there is another useful Metro Station and a flea market. From the hotel there is easy access to the Plaka district and all the ancient sights.

I have stayed in Pan Hotel many times since traveling in Greece - I go back because of the great location (close to: metro, airport bus, Syntagma Square, travel agency, acropolis and other interesting places and good restaurants) clean and comfortable rooms, and the helpful friendly staff who are happy to help with whatever problems one has. This hotel can be relied upon to produce excellent service at all times.

Room Tip: Rooms on the inside are quieter.

The good:
+ great location, close to Syntagma Square and a short walk from the Acropolis
+ very nice and helpful staff
+ decent breakfast included
+ clean rooms with air conditioning
+ good value for money
+ convenient if you come from Athens airport: Syntagma station is on a direct metro line from the airport

The bad:
- not particularly well decorated

All in all, a great place to stay overnight in Athens for a low price. Perfect if you are traveling with friends, you can share one of their 4-bed bedrooms. I wouldn't stay a whole week in this hotel though.

The Pan Hotel is perfectly located near Syntagma Square, Plaka and the Acropolis. The hotel was clean and provided everything we needed, but the highlight was the friendly and helpful staff at the desk. It was such a nice welcome to Greece! The breakfast was decent too. For the price, this place is excellent value.
