“Great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Although the rooms are dated and a bit shabby, the size of the rooms and cleanliness make up for it. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the room I stayed in had a massive balcony which was appreciated. The apartments are equipt with everything you could wish for.
It is very close to the main Metro line which takes you into Athens centre within 5 mins.
I would definately stay here again

I had to go to athens for a congress - far too late I thought of booking a hotel. At that point there was not much choice left. So a temmate and I decided to stay at the Lion Hotel appartments. We booked online for a price of 80 Euros per night for both of us.
When we arrived at the "hotel" the friendly staff was already awaiting us and we got our room. Okay not the newest furniture - but it was clean and it was really huge! A living room (with a very old tv, greek broadcasting only), a kitchen with everything you need, a bathroom and a two bed bedroom. We easily could have stayed there with the rest of our team (another 3 people). I
t wasn't the quietest hotel, you could hear the traffic outside - but for the area we stayed it was okay. We knew there was no breakfast, but at 5minutes walking distance you could find enough coffee shops - the staff told us the way.
Internet was free and allways available.
All in all for this price an excellent hotel.

I stayed at this hotel with my wife and our young children for 3 nights, during a visit to Athens (leisure). The hotel has an ideal location (Kolonaki, next to two metro stations, away from central streets), very spacious rooms 60m2 (bedroom, livingroom, kitchen and bath) and very good price (90 euros per night through booking.com).
There is also very fast WiFi.
There is no breakfast, however you have the kitchen and a supermarket next to the hotel.
The furniture and the equipment is quite old but functioning. The staff is very friendly, they resolve any problem with the equipment. The room is relatively clean.

Room Tip: Select a room in the upper floors (5th or 6th) to have good view.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. (I needed to be in Kolonaki).
The second best thing, is the location.
The third best thing, is the free wifi.
The apt itself is somewhat shabby, especially the living room with a very old TV that gives very limited and blurry reception. But if you do not intend to stay in the room a lot, (and you should not...there is too much to see), then I can say that it worked well for me. It was quiet and clean. The kitchen facilties were a bonus. The bathroom is nice and large and renovated. I would stay there again if I had to be in Kolonaki.

Stayed for two nights in a two bedroom suite. Rooms do look a bit jaded but that is okay. Basic services, and really tiny but adequately equipped kitchen. Friendly helpful staff more than make up for any minor inconveniences. They kept our extra bags for two days till we got back from Santorini (even though we were not going to stay with them). It is located in a quiet green area full of embassies. You can also climb Mount Lycabettus from from here. There are also a few museums nearby.The mini mart's just around the corner. All in all a good experience.

Effective air-con and excellent fast and free WiFi. Clean, adequate kitchen facilities. Polite, friendly and helpful staff. Mini-mart round the corner. Short walk to Evangelismos metro. Quiet area with lots of trees and roomy balcony from which to view them. Stayed for 5 nights. Pleasant area to walk around and walking distance to boutiques. Comfortable walk to
Syntagma through National Gardens.

Well I am very very relucant to write this review as I don't ever want to try and book here and find it is full! After staying at around a dozen studios and apartments in Athens over the years I am very impressed by the Lion. First the location, step out of Evagelismos metro (one stop from Syntagma and on the direct line to the airport) turn left and left again and it is a 3 minutes (in high heels) walk. Or the baby bus for Kolonaki (022, 060) stops right at the street end. Quiet leafy expensive streets. My apartment has a view of a very old Greek church with a garden full of cypress trees. Balcony big enough to throw a party on too. Friendly, helful reception, free wifi code offered. Lovely lady brings you to the apartment and shows u around, complimentary spring water, coffee (instant and filter), milk sugar (they even thought of straws for the frappe! Neat little kitchen - (with electric cooker and small oven, brand new jug, toaster and fridge )and huge living area with two sofas. Seperate bedroom with massive bed and tons of storage space. Great aircon and a full bathroom with bath and shower, complimetary toiletries. Spotlessly, immaculately clean throughout - an absolute delight.
