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

Nothing good stands out about this hotel. The rooms and showers are smaller than normal. Water pressure in the shower is strong, but it alternates between hot and cold by itself. There was an extended power outage the first morning. During a one week stay, two of the nights had strong odors in the room, once like a bug spray,... More

This was better than expected and is ideally centrally located to the main square and shops. Area around is walkable but be careful, you can become so taken in by the area and life of Greece, that you may be streets away from the hotel. Had bed and breakfast. Although near centre, it is not that noisey. Opposite hotel is... More

The hotel is modern, clean and located right next to a metro stop- direct line from the airport. x95 bus terminal stop is also round the corner. This bus runs 24h and turned to be an even faster and cheaper way to get to the airport as compared to metro. We easily walked to Acropolis from the hotel, hop on... More

The location of the hotel is great, a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants and the Plaka District. One block away from Syntagma Square and the Parliament building. 15 to 20 minutes from the Acropolis. As for the hotel it's self the rooms are clean and a decent size, the shower works very well plenty of hot water and good... More

Booked here for our final night in Greece. A pleasant 3 star next to Syntagma square with comfortable beds. The breakfast was a buffet style and decent too. The staff were all extremely polite and helpful. It's centrally located so easy to get to everything.

1. Location: Very close to the Acropolis (10-mins walking), plus in a pretty busy street with nice restaurants around, which was a major plus. Also, next to the metro stop 2. Room: Nice, clean, no-fuzz basic rooms - nothing fancy though 3. Breakfast: pretty basic as in most hotels in Europe for this price

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.
