We were a family of 4 adults and 2 children... We had 3 Superior rooms and the hotel were so accommodating, we requested 3 adjacent rooms, they placed us on Floor 4 and the 3 rooms were adjoining, around the very end of the corridor, where it was like our own personal apartment. We had paid for bed and breakfast,... More

Four of us came from the airport via Metro, which was a mistake: The cost was 36EUR when a fixed-price taxi door-to-door would have been quicker and only 38EUR: Top Tip. Once we'd got there, the rooms were well equipped with big beds, good bathrooms, AirCon and fast Wifi. The roof terrace was lovely at night with superb distant views... More

This hotel is nicely presented throughout. The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms are spacious. The views from the top of the hotel are beautiful but the restaurant / bar is very expensive, almost triple the price of local restaurants. The wifi was painfully slow and the tvs are dated. The hotel is located about 15 minute walk from... More

I read all the negative reviews for this hotel as it was a deal with lastminute.com. So I was prepared for anything to go wrong. Firstly nothing went wrong, all the niggly things people moaned about were maybe due to their own impatience and them being in a hurry. All staff were by no means slow, but were very helpful,...

We stayed at the Melia Hotel whilst in Athens during summer. The front office staff are exceptional in their desire to help. The room was good, clean and well serviced. The roof top bar at night looking over the lit up Acropolis is a treasure. It matches and exceeds The Rex in Saigon. Late dinner on the roof top was... More

We stayed at the Melia for 4 nights at the end of a few weeks in Greece. The room was comfortable and large enough for a couple - the massage shower and spa bath was a treat.

Staying in Exarchia

Neighborhood Profile
Exarchia
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
