Great location, easy to get there (Monastiraki metro station is 2 minutes away on foot), roof terrace with an ok view of the Acropolis, and the market hall nearby. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Skip the breakfast, it was inedible. The room was somehow basic, but it did the job for three days.

This was a second stay in the Cecil. We chose it because of the location, it is in a very central position for all the main attractions. However since our last stay three years ago it has become quite shabby. There were odd curtains in the room. This was also the case in the dining room so perhaps it is...

I stayed here for three nights in the end of October with my three children. We got a family room which actually was two connecting rooms sharing one bathroom. The rooms were small but clean. Nice beds but a terrible view. We were told there was free wifi, but it only worked in the restaurant on first floor. The breakfast...

Old building and facilities but very close to the metro station, easy access to the airport and walking distance from major tourist attraction in Athens. The large room was clean as desirable, furniture and toilet would benefit from some renewal, but well preserved. Breakfast with enough variety. Wifi a bit slow.

Great location, close to the Metro station and in the heart of Monasteraki. Breakfast was good and wifi worked ok. Stellions and Dimitri, who worked the front desk were very helpful. The room was a good size and very clean. I would be happy to stay there again.

We had splendid time at Cecil Hotel! It's needless to say that Athens is one of the most beautiful and interesting cities in Europe, but staying at this lovely little hotel really complemented our wonderful vacation. Sure, it is not a fancy hotel and the rooms and the bathrooms are pretty small, but it has a really charming interior. The...

Stayed for 1 night and we are so glad that was all. It was disgusting - wasn't cleaned properly - shower was mouldy - Beds were terrible - Wifi was terrible - Room/hotel was rundown, old and left to rot Overall, I'd never stay again. Plenty of better hotels for similar price. Go anywhere else.

Staying in Psirri / Gazi

Neighborhood Profile
Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighborhoods Psirri and Gazi provide some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an interesting blend of original small businesses with the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of Keramikos, then cross busy Pireos Street to find yourself in Gazi. With the huge Technopolis performance and art complex converted from old gasworks at its heart, you really have to come at night to appreciate this maze of bars at its best, although a daytime stroll will allow you to admire the excellent street art.
