“Excellent for the price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

So it's not a 5 star hotel, but for what your paying, it was great. I stayed with my husband & found the service is great, air-con worked really well, clean rooms with a frig & safe, small beds & small shower. Water pressure & hot water was good. $22 a night it was an great bargain.
Had dinner at the Romanian restaurant just off the parking lot and great meal, cheap price. Try the cabbage rolls!
The surrounding location was a little dodgey. & looked rough when it got dark. I would suggest that women shouldn't go out on their own when it starts to get dark. Other than that there was no other real worry. I would stay there again if I need to stay a t a clean cheap hotel.

I stayed at the Hotel Pergamos few days ago, and I was impressed how friendly and helpful was the staff:they are speaking good English , they explained me on the map everything was interesting me in Athena,historic places, where to do shopping.A big thank you again! I left at 6.30 in the morning ,before the breakfast timetable but they could offer a cafe or a tea. The room was clean,-excepting one small carpet-, also the bathroom was very very clean.

Stayed at the Hotel Pergamos for 2 nights in July 2012. We arrived at 6am in the morning after an overnight ferry from Ios.. feeling exhausted and dirty we were so thankful when they allowed us to check into our room as soon as the cleaner attended to it which was at 9am! I have never been to a hotel that has allowed you to check in that early! The service was fantastic the whole stay.
The rooms weren't too big but the cleanliness, comfy bed & good working fridge made up for it.
Breakfast was included... Was very minimal but just enough to get you started for the day.
The only let down for this hotel is its dodgy location. It's around the Omonia Square area... Lots of prostitutes, drug users, and intimidating people. I would recommend that unless you are traveling as a group, avoid the streets after dark. And I wouldn't recommend families to stay here. It's about a 20min walk to the Akropolis.

We chose Pergamos for its price and location close to Larissa Train Station as we had a late arrival there. We read reviews saying the area wasn't the best so were fully aware of that before we booked it. Despite this knowledge I was surprised at just how bad the area was, I would never of stayed there had I been a solo female or even a few girls travelling alone. On a brighter note the hotel was excellent value for money with very nice clean rooms. (Very noisy lift though!)

Me and my partner stopped two nights. The location is a little disturbing but not too bad, the staff were very friendly and helpful, answering any questions we had and speaking good English. The hotel was very clean and tidy apart from 3 little Beatles that had took refuge in our room. The breakfast was basic but nice all the same. Hot shower, decent size room with safe and fridge. 5 min walk from Omonia square. Excellent value for money for any body on a low budget journey. The directions are good but the hotel is a short walk to your right at the end of the road, its not on the corner.

We recently returned from a trip to Greece and Turkey and could not have been more pleased with the staff at this hotel. The airline had lost my son's luggage with all of his cloths. We did not have a phone that worked outside the US to contact the airlines to track it down. Manelos (spelling?), Jona(again, not sure how to spell it), and Nick made repeated efforts to call the airports, airlines, and lost luggage departments to help us track it down. They we're just as upset about as we were. Manelos was awesome! Jona and Nick were concerned for us and caring and all three helped make a stressful situation less frustrating with their kindness.

The room was small and serviceable. The shower was indeed small but we really did not have a problem with it. The neighborhood did seem to put other reviewers off but aside from graffiti on some of the nearby buildings, it seemed fine. Our room had a small balcony that overlooked a very small park across the street and at night there were all sorts of people around the area. Pleaple walked their dogs, men in suits and ties caught the bus, people stopped and had a short rest. If there were shady things going on, we did not see anything.

The location was good because even with my arthritis, it was a five minute walk from the metro and there were several buses that stop right outside the hotel (though we did not us them). There were small stores nearby to get soda or snacks and a sandwich place 2 doors down (not really sandwiches, sufflocky- a shaved meat pita).

We were blown away with the kindness of the staff and would highly recommend this hotel. Manelos, if you are reading this, monkey says Hello. Allen and I would like to thank you all for your hospitality.

Room Tip: Not so much about a good room, but bring a washcloth. Most European hotels don't have them,but h...

we were at low-budjet trip in athens 8 days. we decided to stay at pergamos hotel, because the small price and fair good reviews. We decide to take taxi at airport to pergamos hotel, it costed about 30euros and the time to get there was about 30mins. You can see clearly that the place at Omonia isnt the best, but hey, do you really stay at your hotel all the time? We left at morning to watch places and came back before the evening came. about after 9pm the area gets bit creepy (prostitutes, drug dealers etc.) but never nothing happened to us. Just act cool and walk the straightest way to hotel before it gets too dark and you'll be fine.
The breakfast was very good to think the price, it was buffet breakfast included tea,coffee, orange juice, two types of cereals, cold and hot milk, toast, white bread, boiled eggs, two types of marmelade, ham, cheese.
The room was very good again to think the hotels price, very good beds, a small balcony, new tv, fridge, safety box, hair dryer, air -conditioning small toilet and shower. ( we read the other rewiews, why everyone complains about small shower and toilets, c'mon!!!) but yeah, room was small but the idea wasnt to stay at hotel on holiday..... Rooms are cleaned every day, new sheets and new towels. :) you can hear at night voices of the other rooms etc. but then you can buy earplugs if it bothers you, it didnt bother us.
The hotels staff was the NICEST PERSONS WE HAVE EWER KNOWN. <3 many many thanks to them when they helped us lot of things, they let us watch hockey games at computers, ordered us a taxi, helped us to get metrostation, recomended us foodplaces, everything! my boyfriend got very sick at last days, they were very worried about him so they helped to find pharmacy witch was opened at night and called us to room that is everything okay. Not many hotels wouldnt do that!
So, after all, we loved this hotel. It is very good to people who isnt bother so many "small things" like us. If you are very scared of real life what happens at night, then dont go out at night. If you dont like this hotels buffet breakfast then dont eat. If you cant stand small price hotels rooms/people etc. then go to expensive hotel, but then dont complain about a price.Live, love, laugh! :)

Room Tip: we slept at room 603, its far from elevator and the balcony is at the "back street" so i t...
