“Great value, excellent location, wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Just checking out after two nights here. The hotel is very well run and Donnara and the rest of the staff are very attentive. The location is ideal and the staff will spend quality time explaining where to go and what to see. We also got excellent advice on where to eat. I had one of the single rooms which, though quite small, was very well decorated and in good condition. The atmosphere throughout was most pleasant. Just one word of advice as a matter of courtesy to other guests please avoid talking loudly on the coridoors or with room door open. A family opposite me kept doing this and it was most annoying!
While that could happen anywhere, courtesy is particularly important in a small hotel.
Anyway, a wonderful place to stay in a city I have fallen in love with.

I had high hopes for this "Boutique" hotel based on the TA reviews, however we were not impressed. I was expecting old world charm yet the hotel was just dingy and dirty. I understand they want to stay with an antique look, yet the overall impression is very dreary. The common area carpets were filthy, especially the stair runners. The breakfast area felt like a redone 1970s basement rec room...very tacky furniture and decor. Our room was small but satisfactory...but our bathroom was what really left a bad taste in my mouth. I didnt even want to use the shower as it was filthy with mildew. There was also some sort of dirty plastic hose just hanging from the ceiling. you can tell they have attempted to update some of the fixtures, yet it hasnt been done in a proper fashion. Toilet is sloppily plumbed into the wall, walls had been freshly painted but old air conditioning unit is grungy and dirty. The location was very good and we were able to walk to all the major sites and tourist areas. The front desk staff were very pleasant and helpful...the hotels best asset in my opinion. The breakfast was decent enough and as expected. Overall Im sad to say that I can not recommend this hotel based on our experience.

"Feel" of the hotel: This felt like home, so if you're looking for something less "clinical" like the usual run-of-the-mill hotel, this is it. The room we got was spacious. The hotel features old-fashioned, classic decor (think Chandeliers, warm lighting, a walk-up staircase (maybe not so good for super heavy luggage), brass furniture and fittings. Breakfast was home cooked each morning - which was nice and added to the homely feel. Breakfast consisted of cold cuts, potatoes, scrambled eggs, a variety of breads, sweet pastries, coffee/tea, fresh juice (they provide the machine, so it's DIY), and some Greek pastries with Feta Cheese inside. The only feedback I'll give here is, it'll be nice to have some variety from day to day, because we stayed for 4 nights and ate the same thing everyday, which was a bit boring.


Location and surroundings: A 7-10-minute walk to the Acropolis, and a 5-minute walk to the Acropolis Museum, so very convenient. There is a whole stretch of cafes, restaurants and shopping options (souvenirs and local products mainly) - The Promenade, as the locals term it, is in the same vicinity to the Acropolis Museum. We had coffee there only once, as we probably think it's over priced. Also, the restaurant staff were pretty aggressive with pushing their sales, so walk far away if you don't wish to run into consistent persuading.

Note: Do check out this area called "Plaka", which is near the Olympian Zeus temple i.e. perhaps 10 minutes walk from the hotel. The area is nice for eating and shopping for local products. Keep your ticket from The Acropolis for free entry to Olympian Zeus temple - doesn't matter if the ticket was from another day. They still accepted it.

The immediate neighbourhood has some convenience stores which we got our daily supplies from.

Staff: The front desk staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Ask them anything, and they'll be able to tell you!

Price: We got a special offer on the price so for us, it was value-for money.

Getting around: We got around the city using the City Hop-on-hop off sightseeing bus. It's the best and most convenient way to get to know the city as it covers the most important sights and provides you some sort of transportation convenience should you wish to explore on your own. The ticket is valid for 2 days.

We had 3 rooms in this hotel. One was on the 4 th floor and was the most modern with wet room and all white and black interior, the other 2 were well equipped , clean and comfortable with ensuite. There is a lift but you do still have a few stairs to climb. the buffet breakfast offered a variety of food and drink. The hotel was ideally placed for the old city and acropolis. The metro system is also near by so it made getting to the airport really easy for only €8 each.. I would definitely stay here again. The reception staff were really helpful.

Stayed here for 3 nights and it was a very pleasant experience. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the hotel is conveniently located just 2 minutes away from the Sygrou Fix metro station. It is also possible to walk directly to Acropolis, the Museum, Syntagma and many other major attractions without taking the metro (between 5 - 10 minutes walk depending on the destination) The receptionists were all very warm and accommodating and the breakfast was not bad. Would definitely recommend this place.

The location is superb, with a little walk you can reach Acropolis and Olympian Zeus.

Another 5mins walk will take you to Syntagma square.

The Acropolis View Restaurant that the hotel booked for us offers great evening view of the Acropolis.
Room is small but very cozy. The bed is comfortable. We love it!

If like us your prerequisite for an Athens hotel is proximity to the awesome Acropolis, Athens' splendid new Museum, and the Archaeological Museum, as well as a metro stop within walking distance, or taxis right outside the door, then this is the hotel for you. Its welcoming receptionist, Donara, its tasteful antique room settings and comfortable beds, coupled with air-conditioning, small 'fridge and t.v., make for a most pleasant stay. There is internet in the lounge, and a very
adequate buffet breakfast in the Bistro downstairs,but beware the fierce juicing machine!
