The place is really good located, just a few meters from Syntagma square (the center of Athens) with bus and metro connection to the airport from there. The breakfast is very nice and its included on the price of the room. The hotel is comfortable and clean

Room is basic, but spacious enough and there is 24-hour reception with luggage storage. Location is near Syntagma square and is an easy walk to Monastiraki, Thissio, Plaka, and the metro station. Lots to do in the surrounding area. Would stay here again next time I'm in Athens.

Bed and breakfast hotel....... ....... The hotel is 1 minute walking distance from ermou and 2 minutes from sintagma. Friendly staff. I didn't try the breakfast. The hotel is old but clean enough to stay in it.

Just one minute's stroll from Syntagma Square, the Arethusa Hotel offers a central location at a very reasonable price. The room for our 2-night stay was comfortable, the breakfasts were more than adequate, and the view of the Acropolis from the roof terrace was an unexpected bonus. It is a budget hotel, without a bar, but there is a safe... More

This hotel is perfectly located within walking distance to all the main attractions, shops, restaurants, and public transport including the Airport bus. The hotel itself is nice but nothing special. The room was basic, relatively clean and comfortable, but had a few issues. We are not big people but had to sit sideways on the toilet as it was so... More

This hotel is located right across the Syntagma Square and Airport Express Bus station. The surrounding area is safe and there are a lot of cafes and restaurants around. Check-in is from 9-00, which is very convenient if you arrive early. Rooms are equipped with build-in air conditioner and the staff provides the extra key, so the room will be... More

Honestly I wasn't expecting something fancy especially that the price was relatively low but the lobby was a mess, employees although nice they are not that professional, the elevator was always breaking, the mattress feels like sleeping on the floor, the place can be noisy and breakfast is tasteless, hotel entirely is very old and haven't been renovated for lots...

We got stuck in the basement, due to broken lift and got awful service. We expected to be appolized but no! The service was very poor. There was a cigarret smell in the room even thoug it was a non smoking room.

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.
