HOTEL ARETHUSA FOR THE BUDGET TRAVELLER This three-star hotel is centrally located very close to Athens’ Syntagma (Constitution) Square and the Parliamentary Buildings.

We had two rooms 502 and 401 both very spacious 401 had a bath tub which was very enjoyable after a day's sightseeing. The location was fantastic close to buses and short walk to Plaka and one street over from shopping street. Breakfast OK but the same every day. Staff friendly and very helpful. Would stay here again if ever...

The room was big with a small fridge and plenty of clothes storage. Staff was helpful and the location is excellent, just 2 minutes from Syntagma Square. Breakfast was also excellent, and the cost very competitive.

A very good location, many good restaurants - wine bars- shops around and the metro station. The hotel is clean, the walls in rooms need to get painted. It's value for money. The staff is kind and available to help.

A very basic hotel in a very good location. Bathrooms could do with updating - basic but clean. Not a hotel for relaxing in - a place to use as a base for getting out and about in Athens. Great places to shop and eat nearby.

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.
