4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We chose the Arethusa for its location near the train station (a walk of 2-3 blocks). Rooms are plain but spacious and clean. Free breakfast was included, but it didn't measure up to some we have had at other hotels. Again, it was adequate. Staff, however, were very nice and helpful and we met some very interesting people there.

Hotel is good for what you pay. Location is perfect, breakfast is good and served since 6.30 (suits early travelers). Room a bit dated. Towels, although they were clean, they were old and had an unpleasant smell. Receptionist not very happy to welcome people but overall, good value for money. If you are lucky, you can even get a room... More

Great location...very close to Syntagma Square and Ermou Street...many other Athenian attractions are at a walking distance. Buses, taxis and the metro is easily accessible... Everything else about this place is "just enough"....the rooms, the amenities, the washrooms. The staff is OK and the breakfast spread was good. Don't expect anything extraordinary with the price being reasonable and the location... More

Very nice hotel that has refurnished rooms. The bathroomis rather small, but everything you need is there. The room itself is large enough and has large windows with much light.The wifi is free and pretty good. The breakfast is included and more than you may expect for a Greek cuisine. Most interesting is the location of Arethusa in the center... More

It's a nice hotel, clean rooms, with free wifi, frigobar, cable TV and a very nice buffet breakfast. The location is excellent, at Sintagma Square, where most of the tours start, near Monastiraki market and Plaka area.

If you are going to explore the main sites and sounds of Athens, are on a budget and love shopping, then get on board. If you wake up in the morning, shower, eat a simple breakfast so you can explore everything worth exploring, then stay here. If you like your hotel's staff to polite, helpful and unobtrusive, this is your... More

The Hotel was in the center of Athens which made it absolutely great with its location. But the walls are rather thin and so if you have inconsiderate people who come back late at night and start to talk loudly, move around in thier room, you would hear it. So get ear plugs. Hotel was clean and breakfast very good.

Excellent location of the hotel, it is located in the heart of Athens close to Syntagma Square. My friend and I we share a two bed room, we slept well and the breakfast it was ok. The best thing about the hotel is the location and the price, it is not expensive and we visited Plaka, Monastiraki and the surrounding... 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.
