“Worst hotel experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

The outside seems to be good, but don't judge a book by its cover. The room scared me frankly, the beds are dirty (be sure to look for anything with your flash before doing anything) and the furniture is very old. We stayed there for 5 minutes and left!

First, I cannot think anything bad about my staying at Platon Hotel. Second, I just loved Athens.

It was a really hot summer, but my room stayed cool as refreshing shower. It was nice to lay on a nice bed with nice tan after walking around Athens the whole day.

Room was also very tidy and it was cleaned every day. Towels were also changed daily. I didn't have the breakfast but made friends with the lady who brought the Greek coffee to my room at least twice a day... no need to tell I liked it a lot.

The hotel is situated close to tram station, so getting Athens center was easy. The trip took a while, but I didn't mind because of the nice views. Sometimes I walked by the coast line and it was absolutely beautiful.

Overall, I warmly recommend the Platon hotel, because of the price and quality matching so well. Athens as a city is one of my favorites and hoping to get there again some day.

Me and my team stayed for the first time in this hotel. We went to Athens for construction business. The hotel is very clean and the staff is very polite. The also gave us a bottle of wine as a gift. See you again in December hotel Platon!

Whereas it is true (stated in another review) that back-view rooms' balconies are frequently visited by pigeons with an ugly view, one shouldn't forget that this is a very low-priced hotel, which really surprised me in a positive way.
Friendly front desk, clean, unbeatable price, cheap room service and -most importantly- located in a quiet residential area (not far away from Piraeus) - unlike the majority of budget hotels in dodgy down-town Athens.
All in all, a really good deal for that price - I would definitely sleep there again. But I would make sure to get a front-view room.

We had an awful experience with this hotel... If you get room witch is not on the street you will certainly get one with view on another building, without sun and very close to another rooms (so you can see what is going on there) and with many pigeons... I'm very sorry because I forgot to take a picture to show you this.
Two nights, how much we succeeded to stay in this hotel, we could hear some man who had very noisy problem with lungs and nose (some kind of very bad pneumonia I suppose) and was using public bathroom on our (2nd) floor all night and in the morning (I can't say what was going on during the day, because we were out). But it was disgusting to hear all that coughing out.
Room was very dirty and in bed we could found many hairs of different length , witch didn't belong to us... Same thing with floor, many hairs and dust...
Also, man who was working in the evening (with moustache) was very nervous and unpleasant, and had very inappropriate reactions.
Only good thing was breakfast...
We decided to check out and we went to hotel beside (GLS boutique) for 5 euros more and we were saved.

I was looking for a nice clean budget hotel with ensuite rooms and good public transport connections. At the Platon hotel that is exactly what I found, in fact it was little better than expected. Maybe if I had seen the previous review I would have hesitated, even though it is a little old. However, I booked on Booking.com and based my choice on the reviews there, (you can only leave a review if you have actually stayed there).
The room was very clean and the sheets and towels were changed regularly. We chose to book without breakfast so I can't know what that was like. Room service prices for drinks were very reasonable. Staff were very helpfull and they even gave us a bottle of wine as a gift on New Year's Eve, (they did to all the guests). Great location by the sea but was well connected to the centre by 3 kinds of public transport that had stops just outside the hotel, (bus, trolley bus and tram) and the metro system was just two stops away. In fact, we were able to arrive at the hotel using the airport bus (got off at the metro station and then got the 40 bus direction Athens for three stops).
To get around Athens we used the weekly ticket which costs only 10 euro and gives unlimited travel on all normal public transport for 7 days. Speaking of public transport, we even got the public transport sightseeing bus, (N° 400). It cost only 5 euro and did the same route as the private sightseeing bus which cost 18 euro. The public bus ticket was valid for 24 hours, hop on, hop off, too and what's more, was valid on the other public transport during those 24 hours.

  • Liked — Cleanliness-Location-Price-Public Transport connections
  • Disliked — Obviously the hotel was not perfect but there is nothing negative that is worth mentioning.

This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. I've stayed there 3 times in total, because it is close to a big congress center which organises fairs (EKEP). The staff are too unfriendly and rude. Everybody smokes everywhere in the hotel and it smells terrible. The first time I stayed there they damaged my suitcase and stole my money. The last time they lost my identity card in the reception and they said that I was responsible for it, not them. The rooms are pretty small in size and the breakfast is ok, but there is no place for no-smokers in the breakfast room and we were obliged to smell smoke while having breakfast.

  • Liked — Close to the congress center
  • Disliked — Rude staff
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay somewhere else
