Reception staff fantastic. Very welcoming. Upgraded our room without asking. Clean. Location is perfect. Only downside is the pool is at another one of their hotel which you have to walk to but once there the staff are amazing. Bring you cool towns... and the view from the pool is amazing.

Quaint rooms with modern facilities. Very courteous and always helpful staff. Very close to all major attractions, within a 5-10 minute car ride. Sumptuous breakfast in the morning to get the day started! Plenty of eating choices close by including the restaurant on property.

Excellent location close to main touristic attractions, at the beginning of a pedestrian shopping street, also close to metro and bus to the airport. My room, a superior, was nice and welcoming, with a nice lateral view on Syntagma square. Very clean. Nice toiletries from Korres. If you like super cool modern hotels, this is probably not the right choice... More

This hotel is in a great location, within walking distance to many stores, restaurants and historical places. Breakfast was excellent, and included in the price. Rooms were spacious and well appointed. The roof top terrace has breathtaking views of the Acropolis. Service was very good. Our local tour guide said that it is one of the top three hotels in...

This small hotel is situated on Ermou Street, Athens' main shopping corridor, a block from Syntagma Square, and an easy walk to the Plaka. It is a small hotel with personalized service. The common areas are clean as was our room, which was nicely furnished and equipped, overlooking the street. A small balcony provided a nice view but did not... More

Located very centrally and the rooms were great. The breakfast was very good with a variety of items on offer. The Wifi was absolutely terrible. Probably done on purpose as they were offering 'High Speed' wifi at a premium starting at €6 for 30 minutes - great value (being sarcastic of course). Also it was extortionately expensive - but being... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
