This was our first time in Athens and we couldn’t be happier with our stay. The location was unbeatable and we had best dinner, breakfast, drinks and stores for souvenirs with a few feet from our hotel. Our room was on the third floor and had such a magical view that we enjoyed each night we stayed there (with the complementary wine provided by hotel). The hotel was clean, very cute, and most importantly the staff was so attentive (carried our bags up, took us directly to locations)—this staff is quick and works very hard!! I would stay here again if we come back to Athens!!!
The Palladian Home is as different from a typical Marriott or Westin as day and night, but it’s loaded with charm and offers impeccable service from a pleasant and accommodating staff. The rooms are small and in need of a bit of refreshing, but it had everything we needed. Its best feature is its super location right in the middle of the Plotka and in the shadow of the Acropolis. We could walk to everything including a variety of wonderful restaurants, gelatarias, shops and museums. We enjoyed coffee on our balcony every morning and walked to a nearby restaurant for breakfast, which was included in our rate. The staff gave us excellent recommendations for dining, arranged for our transport from the airport and to the port of Piraeus and even taught us some useful Greek phrases! A warm thank you to the entire staff! You put the home in a Palladian Home!…
An amazing location at the heart of the Plaka, a few blocks for the Acropolis, with very friendly staff. The room was a little small for our taste, but it was worth squeezing in to be in such a great location and beauty!
Great hotel on a pedestrian square, 5 minute walk to the Acropolis with tons of bars, restaurants and shopping footsteps from the hotel. Staff was accommodating and very helpful with recommendations, they called taxis for us and stored luggage as well as changed reservations multiple times due to the pandemic. I would stay here again and again and will recommend to anyone who goes to Athens. This was a recommendation from a friend to us.
Great hotel in a perfect location to walk everywhere from eating to shopping from souvenirs to up market. The Manager could not have been more accommodating and helpful. There is even a kitchen area if you want to self cater but with such a huge choice of places to eat why would you ?Cannot recommend highly enough !
Far from nice hotel. Very expensive for a poor hotel. Bathroom with water leaking, toilet did not work You have to walk long and dangerous stair to get your room. Not elevator. Damaged Security box detached from the wall, poor breakfast. A wooden table in the middle of the stairs is the reception of the hotel. Not even a coffee machine. Far from the pictures the show in their website.
Location Excellent for reaching all the main sites. You can walk to the base of the Acropolis in around 10 mins and all the highlights are within a 30 min walk. Outside the door are a number of cafes/restaurants that are open from 8am for breakfast until late at night. You definitely won’t want to rent a car as the streets are tiny and hard to navigate even for experienced taxi drivers! If you want dropping off, it is easier ask taxis to take you to the temple of Zeus as this is on the main road and you can walk through the side streets for 3 mins to get to the hotel. The surrounding streets are filled with every restaurant, cafe, ice cream shop and souvenir shop you could possibly want. Check in and out We arranged an airport transfer in advance with the hotel for €38.50 and would really advise doing this as the driver met us in Arrivals and the hotel staff met us on the side road and brought us and our luggage to the main door as cars can’t drive down the streets immediately surrounding the hotel. The man on reception was very helpful and gave us a map. We asked for a taxi to be booked to our next destination and this was arranged for us easily and the whole process was very quick. The hotel was extremely quick to respond to emails I sent. Hotel You have a small kitchen upstairs, but this did not seem to contain anything other than tea to drink. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery if you wanted to buy food and eat it there. They have made an effort to make the entrance and stairs pretty and welcoming. The outside is also very attractive. This is not a hotel suited to those with mobility issues as the rooms are accessed up some twisty internal steps. It wasn’t too noisy at night, with only a little noise from the restaurants, but you do get some noise from street buskers and other people opening and closing doors. Room The room is very spacious for a city centre room and had all the expected amenities. There is a safe, but it is very small. The bed was very comfortable with thick pillows. The decor is tasteful if perhaps a little plain. We felt very at home in the room. The main thing we would suggest improving is that both the room door and toilet door were very stiff and required slamming to close and noise carries quite a bit there as the doors have frosted glass panels. The room was cleaned daily. We had a city view room that looked out over the square. Bathroom There is a hairdryer and nice toiletries provided in the bathroom. The only thing missing was liquid soap as they provide bars instead so bring your own if your prefer it. There was a walk in shower and no bath. We would return if we wanted another city break in Athens.…
The Palladian home is a beautifully restored boutique hotel. We had 305 Nefeli room which was absolutely gorgeous with a big comfortable king size bed and little balcony which looked out to the Acropolis. It is in the best position in the centre of Plaka with everything on your doorstep - eateries and shops galore plus a 5- 10 minute walk to the museum and base off the Acropolis. The staff were very friendly and eager to please. Breakfast at a nearby cafe was ok. I would elect not to have breakfast included and scout around the many options.
The staff here were all very helpful and the views from the balcony were amazing. Great location too and the main attractions and great restaurants are all within easy walking distance! Would definitely stay again if ever in Athens!
Clean room, excellent location, friendly and helpful staff. Very walkable to the acropolis and other attractions. There are several restaurants right on the square to choose from. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The staff were very helpful in coordinating with the airline to receive delayed luggage.
