For a quick visit we wanted to be close to Plaka and we got a great view, renovated bathroom, and a quiet room with a balcony overlooking the Acropolis. Not fancy and the elevator is comically small but it had all the basics and was clean and attractive. Recommended if you want a good easy location for walking and restaurants.

I moved to this hotel because the first hotel I booked (Hotel Tempi) was horrible. I was so happy with this one! Clean, just renovated, warm, nice bathroom...

We spent 1 night at this hotel. The rooms are small but nice. Most of the furniture is clean. The location is perfect. You can walk everywhere. The breakfast was small but nice with cereals, bread, eggs, juice, coffee and tea etc. The staff was nice and had some useful advices for us.

A great location, really nice staff, clean room, and a wonderful terrace breakfast (6 Euro) with the best views, including the Acropolis and Metropolitan Cathedral. Relaxing and sunny too. Small rooms, awkward shower, but so worth putting up with, for the the breakfast, terrace view, and excellent location. Our room had a great view and balcony too.

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.
