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.

Lovely place, very clean. In my opinion the roofgarden is one of the best in the city, with amazing view of Acropolis. Nice people. I recoment it for short stay in the city center, everything around in walking distance, no need to use your car.

I travel for work and on this occasion travelled with colleagues. We are booked for 3 nights, out early morning and back late evening. On the 2nd morning I woke up with bed bugs. When I went to reception to change rooms, I was refused a room by lady at the front desk. She didn’t ask me the reason was such a request, so I had lift my sleeves to show here where I have been bitten by bedbugs. After 5mins on the phone, she managed to swap the room. I returned later in the evening and as promised I was given a different room. However, after a cursory apology from the the front desk in the morning, I hadn’t have any contact from management. It is as if they don’t care. I was not offered to have my laundry and dry cleaning done (to be certain I do not spread the damn bugs), asked if I needed medical help or any assistance despite having my contact details. I would hate to see another person checked into that room before it had a deep clean. Having to change hotels is impossible at the last minute plus my colleagues were not affected. I have photographed where I’ve been bitten (arms and legs) in case the injuries develop into something more serious. Another thing is, it’s February and the heating is at full blast in the rooms. The controls do not work. I had to open a balcony door to ventilate as the room got very stuffy in the middle of the night.

Thank you for your review. We apologise for any incident you might had but we would also like to note that your accusations are very offending and perhaps inaccurate as you might had a bite from an insect coming from the window you opened and not bed bugs. In any case we will pass your comments to our management team to address.

My partner and I, along with his family stayed at the Central Athens Hotel as three couples. The hotel is very clean and updated. We had three rooms on the same floor, each room was a good size and had all the basics. The only thing that had the potential to be an issue were the see through doors to the bathrooms. My partner and I had a room where the bathroom could be seen from the bed area. My partner and I didn’t mind, however this could be an issue for non-couples. The roof top bar and restaurant is amazing! The food is good and at a reasonable price. The service is great. We loved having drinks on the roof top bar both inside and out. The reception staff are helpful. We only had one issue were we were told that we couldn’t book a airport transfer until the day before and when we went to book it, we were told we had not given enough time (even though we came back when they said to). I think this may have been a communication error as we had 6 people and needed a van. We would stay again :)

Optimal geographical location, walking distance to all major sights of Athens. Roof top terrace/restaurant with excellent Acropolis view and equally excellent food. Very kind, attentive service (restaurant, reception, breakfast).

This is a very nice and convenient hotel to stay at in Athens. Located in the Plaka neighborhood it is a great location to everything you want to do in Athens. It is easy to get to from either the Syntagma Square or Monastraki metro stops. It is an easy walk to all the main sights and has a rooftop bar with incredible views of the Acropolis. The rooms are comfortable and clean and decent sized. The hotel is modern with all the amenities you'd expect and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Would recommend for a stay in Athens.
