“Still excellent with a few quirks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Second time I stayed here, this time I got a room on the side of the hotel, facing restaurant "twentyone". These rooms are smaller that the ones facing the street and the back yard, but still with an excellent sleeping quality. The room I got, was like the previous visit spotlessly clean and with a slightly smaller bathroom as well. Everything as perfect, aside that the shower-heads were in a less than perfect working order. When trying to turn it on the first morning, the water wen happily straying all over the place, out through the leaks in the connections to the rain shower-head. When I tried to switch to the normal shower-head, this was unfortunately not to the better. Eventually i fixed it with my nail clipper (wedging it in between the piping and the clamp kept the connections tight).
But aside of this minor annoyance (my colleagues room apparently had the same defect), the stay was perfect as usual, with impeccable service, great breakfast, wifi that works, and the ability to check-in and print boarding cards from the lobby and all the other plusses.
I'll stay here anytime again.

This hotel was booked for a colleague and I by a business we were visiting in Athens and it didn't disappoint. The staff were friendly and the service was good. Rooms are excellent and modern. The front rooms have balconies.

The Y is situated in a suburb of Athens which I am not generally familiar with but it was within a very short walking distance of lots of good restaurants and bars. Shopping is also not far away with big brands such as Louis Vuitton etc.

Room Tip: I know that rooms ending 04 have balconies but suspect that all front facing rooms do too.

In a quiet, well to do suburb this hotel does everything right. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Service is impeccable. I'd stay here again in a flash for business or pleasure. There are many shops, restaurants and other facilities in easy walking distance too

Great boutique hotel, lovely service and best breakfast ever in wonderful green located area of northern Athens!

I'm coming since over 10 years and its always a pleasure to be back.

Honestly I feel it's worth much more than three stars though.

I travel to Athens for both business and pleasure and I always stay at the Y Hotel. First of all, the hotel is lovely, with nicely decorated lobby and has a really welcoming and comfortable outdoor seating area in the front, great for a drink or meal. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful and the breakfast is good with coffee made to your liking (cappuccino, latte, espresso, etc). The rooms are well-appointed and the hotel is on a quiet street, so you can even leave the balcony door open in the evening for nice sleep with a breeze.

The hotel location is far from the city center (no chance to walk), but you can go by taxi for less than 20 euros or you can take a metro. If you are not in Athens for tourism, the hotel is in a lovely location. It's in the very hip Kifisia neighborhood which is full of pedestrian streets, shops, restaurants, and nightlife.

All in all, I really look forward to my next stay at Y Hotel.

Room Tip: Every room I've had has been nice, and the hotel website describes the amenities very well.

Second time we stay at the Y hotel and I can say that it was as magnifisent as the first time.. Our room was at the 5th floor with 1 great balcony overlooking Athens. cleaning was excellent. The breakfast we ordered in the room was more than enough! The hotel staff are very helpfull and polite, from cleaning, bar, front desk, all the time with a smile. I would recomend the hotel to everyone.
