Near to the Parliament, on hight street, but quality of the rooms, breakfast can be better,.... For business its one of the best location, you can arrange all your meeting around the hotel. Tried passage in Piraeus headquaters, many nice bars and restaurants.

At first we had some problems with the check-in, there was a mis-communiction between online booking and the reception. The hotel itself is a mixed between modern style in the breakfast room and classical style in the rooms. I have to say, furniture high quality, the bed was wonderful (high quality of the pillow and blanket), roomservice food was a... More

Location is excellent, and considering it the price was very moderate. The breakfast was good, service friendly. There are some seats in the lobby area we used for a small meeting. I am not a fan of air conditioning and prefer to open the window. My room was towards the courtyard in which the ventilation for the kitchen made noise.... More

walking distance to sightseeing, shops, and the Syntagma square metro station. Good wifi coverage. Single room is a little too compact but very clean and quiet for sure. Staffs are very warmth and helpful. I'd say the price is somewhere between mid-range to luxury.

Good hotel , clean good rooms , close to all the sightseeing ,walking distance any restaurants and markets.We stayed for 7 days and took a 1 day cruise to the islands. We recommend this hotel for the central location. Do not drink or use any thing from the refrigerator as it will cost you extremely high.

I stayed here for three nights in a single room. Although compact the room was not claustrophobic, very clean, and had a corner window with no view. But the action is not looking out the window, it is out the front door. The hotel is on the 'Fifth Avenue' of Athens, three minutes to the Plaka and two minutes from... More

Everything was as we aspected: - perfect location; - very good breakfast; - clean; - helpful and friendly staff; It was a very big surprise that our room, with street view, was very quiet and perfect isolated. If we want to complain about something, is the size of the... More

Right in the centre of Athens. Friendly reception, decent room which is big enough if you're travelling alone. It's a five minute walk to the 'Plaka' area where you have some good restaurants. Breakfast at Elektra was very very good.

The location of the hotel is perfect. The room was small but comfortable. The staff was very helpful and polite. They even made a reservation for us to one of the best live music night club. We hope to visit this lovely city and the hotel soon....

You couldn't ask for much more in a hotel. We arrived 3 days prior to our cruise. Had asked for an early check in and told if available they would comply. Well after a long night of traveling they did have a room ready. The hotel is very clean and beautiful furnishings. The bed was truly a welcome sight each... 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.
