We had a pleasant stay at the Athens Lotus hotel, the staff were friendly and helpful and the hotel had a relaxed atmosphere about it. No criticisms either of the restaurant where a buffet style breakfast was served.
The room we stayed in wasn’t spacious but it was comfortable and adequate. One criticism would be that the bathroom, although modern and obviously recently renovated was on the small side. Additionally, most travellers I'm sure would appreciate coffee and tea making facilities in their rooms which this hotel unfortunately does not provide, although there was 24 hour room service available.
The area surrounding the hotel is not the most pleasant, but the metro is literally seconds away and we encountered no problems. Most travellers have adequate street sense to know how to act and avoid nasty situations in difficult neighbourhoods. It’s worth noting also that the hotel has adequate security presence outside the front entrance provided by a security guard.
Reception and management were friendly and approachable, any small problems were dealt with efficiently and with a smile.
Overall, considering the reasonable cost of staying at this hotel, we would have no hesitation in using it again should we return to Athens.
