“Walk to the right!”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Overall this is a pretty good hotel. The room was nice and clean. The price even better, at 47.50 euros per day for a standard twin room. The location is on the Aristogitonos street off Athinas, between Monastraki and Omonia. You can walk to either in about 10 minutes. The buffet breakfast was excellent and if you have to leave before 7AM, when the breakfast officially starts, you can have a continental breakfast after 5AM which was sufficient.

The hotel is across the entrance to the huge Athens Central Market (Fruits,vegetables,meat,fish etc.)and is easy to find. Turning into Aristogitanos from Athinas, walk about 100 yards. The hotel is on the left side. You cannot miss the HOTEL sign. The smell of rotten foodstuff(?) is strong but it disappears once you go through the doors in to the hotel. The areas on the left side of the hotel(as you come out) is not the best neighborhood, so stick to walking to right towards Athinas.

For one night we splurged and got a room on the 6th floor with Parthenon view. It is a beautiful at night when the temple hill is illuminated and worth the 70 euros.

There is a fast food restaurant at the corner of the hotel street and Athinas. It is convenient if you want to eat something quick. My wife had a souvlaki sandwich to go and said that it was the best ever!

This hotel is a very good buy and I recommend it.

This is a really nice city hotel located in a square right across from the Athens Central Market. It is withing walking distance of Monastiraki square and the Monastiraki subway station. We felt completely safe 24/7 even if the area looks dodgy at night. Athens is a great destination and the prices are right in the winter time. Last but not least the staff was welcoming and extremely helpful.

Room Tip: Try getting a room with a view of the Acropolis

I stayed 2 nights in that wonderful hotel. In the city centre of Athens close to Monastiraki area (metro station). Renovated and very clean hotel. Very comfortable and one step far from the heart of Athens. I totally recommend it.

Room Tip: The rooms are modern and renovated. Convenient location, very good staff

Nice hotel situated very close from Monastiraki, in the heart Of the Athens market( for those who have light sleep, staying on the lowest floors could get you a bit annoyed).Rooms are clean and spaciuos enough for a couple. Great staff and rich breakfast.

Our room was clean and well appointed. The hotel is near the metro. I wasn't a fan on the area around the hotel - I felt safe, but it wasn't quaint by any means. If you are up for a walk you can also walk to the main sites from the hotel. The hotel has a very nice rooftop lounge with a great view of the acropolis.
We had a little trouble finding the hotel, so my advice is to look up - as it is a big building and the name of the hotel is on it.

Dear Euro_101
I thank you for staying at our hotel and for your positive review. I am glad after experiencing yourself, you mentioned, that the location though it may looks shabby, it is indeed very safe and very close to all attractions as it is just few minutes’ walk from Plaka area in front of the colorful fruit market. Referring to your comment about finding our hotel, on our website there are "directions" on how you can find the access easily! I do hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back on a future visit and please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of assistance.
Have a wonderful new year!

This was my first visit to Athens and did a ton of research on hotels prior to my stay. We picked Athens Center Square because of the reviews, price, and location. My boyfriend and I were both pleasantly surprised with our 4 night stay.

I like to walk and explore new cities so instead of taking a taxi to our hotel from the airport, we took the Metro. Just a note on the Metro, it is clean and very easy to use but be careful to look after your things. Anyway, from the Metro stop we only had to walk about two block to the hotel entrance. The hotel did a good job instructing people how to get there.

The room itself was very nice, clean, and large. The bathroom was huge. We opted for a room with a balcony which was a nice feature at night. The morning breakfast was decent, pretty typical breakfast food for a hotel. The entire hotel seemed clean and the staff was very nice.

The best part about the hotel was the location. Not having been to Athens before I didn't know everything is pretty much within walking distance. But this hotel is conveniently located which makes walking to any part of the city very easy. We literally walked everywhere and only took a taxi once to get to the bus station to continue our trip. Walking in Athens can be tricky though, we got "lost" almost every day but it was so great seeing more of the city than we would have if we took the Metro or a taxi everywhere.

Yes, you have to walk through the daily produce market to get to the hotel entrance, and it can seem a little seedy at night but we had no issues whatsoever. This is something we were a bit concerned with given the economic problems in Greece right now. We did see a few protests and a large military/police presence but nothing got out of hand on our visit. Definitely take a walk through the meat market across the street....well, I felt like a piece of meat walking in there, but it was quite a site to see.

Overall, this was a very good hotel for the price and location. If we go back to Athens I wouldn't be as concerned with picking the right location within the city because it's completely walkable. I like to stay at new places when I travel but I wouldn't rule out Athens Center Square for future visits.
