Hotel Acropolis House is a preserved mansion of the last century, in excellent condition. It is consisted essentially of two different buildings together. The oldest of these is a stone manor house about 120 years old and the other is well-built four-floor building of 75 years. In 1965 it was modified to a hotel from the family Choudalakis, which operates since. Generally the hotel is a two star family business with character, providing security and full service to both families, and unique people who respect the identity of the hotel. In total the hotel has comfortable single, double and large rooms for families. The Hotel Acropolis House has a non smoking policy in all areas. Guests may smoke in the terrace of the first floor. Hotel Acropolis House is located at the gates of Plaka having so the advantage of being close to all the interesting places without the disadvantage of the hustle of the people and vehicles visiting the site. It is situated in a stunning location, either for professional or tourist as it is a 10-minute walk from the monument of Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum, 3 minutes from Syntagma Square and the metro / bus and 2 minutes from the commercial and business center of Athens. Near the hotel there are parking, museums, pharmacies and the tourist information office. The hotel has a breakfast room, which served continental style breakfast very early in the morning for early morning flights (from 07.30 Until 10.30). There is luggage storage and safe for customers. Finally, Hotel Acropolis House has a library, with a rich collection, to borrow books from. This is himself occasionally enriched by the customers.

Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.

This is an old hotel full of quirky charm and old fashioned plumbing. Three things make this a great place to stay: reasonable (for Athens) prices, great location and above all really friendly and helpful staff. Oh and the breakfasts are very good as well

Hotel's Favorite
This is a family-owned hotel in a 19th century villa. The staff is charming, very welcoming, and very helpful. I felt like I was coming home every night when I walked in the door. The rooms tend to be small - some more so than others - and the bathrooms are old, but they overall effect is pleasant and homey, with old-fashioned dark wood furniture and very high ceilings. A few rooms have balconies - I recommend 107, if you can get it; it's a little larger and has a view of the Acropolis down the street and to the left from the balcony. The downstairs, where breakfast is served, still preserves some of the wall coverings and other details from the 19th century. And the breakfast itself was generous and innovative, with a wide array of traditional Greek breakfast dishes (yogurt, fruit, bread, jam, tiropita), plus some egg and meat dishes for more British and US appetites, as well as a half dozen or so tradiitonal Greek snacks (salads, olives, etc.). The location is quite convenient - a couple of blocks inside the Plaka, and an easy walking distance to Syntagma Square as well as to the Acropolis. We took the bus in and out from the airport and walked in easily from Syntagma square. Plaka shops and restaurants are just around the corner.

This old mansion looked like a fun place to stay in a convenient location. I should have known something was wrong when I was asked to pay cash upon arrival (see photo). I was absolutely horrified when I was shown the room. It was a space created by adding a wall behind the reception desk and cutting off part of the dining room. I heard every conversation and every telephone call at the reception desk. I returned to find no hot water and the receptionist told me "there was a problem." The bathroom was bizarre and featured crumbling caulking and sweating taped wrapped pipes. The wiring was equally sketchy and could not have been up to code. It was genuinely frightening to stay in this uncomfortable and unsafe room. We all understand that hotels are business enterprises. But subjecting guests to these conditions is just not right.

Response from Acropolishouse, Υπεύθυνος Ρεσεψιόν at Hotel Acropolis House
Responded Jul 10, 2019
Dear Guest The hotel Acropolis House, after reading your feedback, investigate your complaint and found out that you and your family stayed in our hotel in two different occasions. One for three days and after island hopping stayed another 2 days. So we will not respond to any of the furious allegation above ... We can only remind you that our reception is open all night and day and if you had any problem or discomfort the receptionist would change you room or would communicate with the manager so you can change hotel. The front desk remembers that every time we asked you if you are satisfied or need anything else (we ask all our guests daily and try to satisfy their demands) your response was that everything is fine. The hotel Acropolis House is a hotel for over 50 years and after so long our only goal it to help our guest have wonderful memories from their trip in Greece. It is by this way we are still present as a hotel and have loyal friends all over the world. I can only add that even after you first stay was over you had time to cancel your second reservation without any cancelation fee and of course you also could ask for a different room for when you come back in case you did not want to change hotel.

This hotel was a great place to stay in the heart of Plaka. Close to all the attractions, shopping mall, trains and buses. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. For the price would certainly recommend and would stay again when in Athens

Hotel Acropolis is perfectly plassed in the heart of beautiful Athen. The staff were very nice and welcomming. The hotel is a bit old, and the interior isnt up to date. There are a family living at the hotel permanently, and you walk thru their living room When you are going upstairs, but thats not a problem at all. Furthermore the hotel itself doesnt match the price you pay. Average breakfast and a old and a bit rusty room isnt worth the amount of money you have to use. The location on the other hand is perfect. Just a 5 minute walk from a bunch of restaurants and stores, and only 20 minutes away from Acropolis. So summed up, this hotel is average, and ok to use for a couple of nights in my opinion.
