“good budget choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

We stayed here for five days in April 2012 after looking for somewhere in Plaka. The location is great for many ancient sites and although it's in a touristy part of town, it's much better than Monastiraki, which is grungier by comparison. The hotel is very clean, there are no lifts so be prepared for some windy stairs. The room was simple but sufficiently furnished. Our bathroom was very small but did the job. There is a pc for general use in the lobby which is useful plus there is free wifi. The staff at reception were all really good. A special mention to Alix who was a wealth of knowledge and who entertained us with his stories.

Hotel "Kimon" is in a nice location and clean,but the service was disappointing! Internet was not working,breakfast was not served,even was agreed day before! the stuff was not cooperative and not reacting on complains.The answers were "i don't know". I really don't know how this people can work in tourism sector.There are better and more economic places around,so good luck!

Good location, clean rooms. Staff were almost freindly... except one :)
It is 5 minutes walk to monastirak, and 5 minutes walk to anafiotika..
and in parallel with ermou street..

the price is better if you just drop by, I get a single room for 35 euro, while i checked it in hotels.com it was 68 euro /night.

Simple, clean, cheap and in a great location to the main sights in the city. Breakfast was very disapointing.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

The hotel had very nice staff and good service (for example: they called us a cab when the metro was on strike and it was difficult to get one), we could leave our luggage with them before getting the key and also on departure. Breakfast is offered and served at the rooftop. Although it is reasonable priced and you get to sit quietly in a busy city, there are lots of good breakfast places around and Greece is the perfect place to get your breakfast at the sweet bakeries that are spread around the cities.
The room wasn't really big, but it was comfortable and it had it's own shower. There was also a refrigerator in the room, as well as a safe. The towels were changed every day.
Downstairs in the lobby there was a pc, but you got free wifi in your room as well. At the lobby you can also pull some drinks out of the machine to take to your room or some water to hydrate you as you start to wander around Athens.

If I would return to Athens, I would certainly consider going back to Kimon. The main reasons are: clean room, nice staff, really great location!!, free wifi and the possibility to leave luggage at the lobby.

Room Tip: there are a few floors and no elevator, so if you have legproblems, ask for a room on the first floo...

This is the perfect 'no frills' place to stay. Exceptionally clean rooms, friendly staff, free wi-fi. View of Acropolis from top of the hotel...
Also... I found it to be quieter than I expected, but maybe because I was here during the off-season!
Can't beat the location!
