As expected from the Accor group and the French standards, no bad surprises, nice room&bathroom, clean, and very friendly staff too.. Great breakfast,and great swimming pool on the roof with a Wow view. and near to the tube and centrale train station and not far from the long distance bus station too.
I definitely recommend this hotel for everyone who is stopping by in Athens despite what some reviews stated about the area as dodgy or not safe ... comparing to what is dodgy in Paris and London it is a walk in the park.

I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions and have been very impressed by the staff and efforts to maintain a first rate hotel at an extremely affordable price....not always that easy to find but near Larissa rail station

The hotel has a nice relax area with swimmingpool, bar and a great view of the Acropolis from the top floor, but the view is better than both the food and the service. Bar and food prices at the hotel are relatively high compared to other better hotels and restaurants in Athens. But you have not much choice if you do not want to take a taxi to the Plaka area (which might be worth it actually). The area around Novotel Athenes is a little rough and worn down with no bars and restaurants in the immediate viscinity. The economic meltdown in Greece is very "visible" once you leave Novotel Athenes main entrance.
Our room was a typical standard hotel room. No frills, but had a very comfortable bed, free Wi-Fi and AC that worked well - and it was very quiet too.

Did not feel very safe in the area.....an ok hotel. Nice roof top section. Food not good.

Overall the hotel was satisfactory. However, it was not in the best location so we could not thoroughly enjoy it.

We would not return.

During August 2012 we spent 6 nights in the Novotel Athenes and were more than satisfied with our stay. Both the hotel and rooms are very well
appointed with the accommodation serviced every day. The rooftop pool is a great vantage point over the city, although the food and drinks served are incredibly expensive and of mediocre quality at best.
The main point of contention regarding the hotel concerns it's location in a very sketchy neighbourhood and the distance from the city centre. Athens' overbearing heat makes it less than conducive to walking long distances.
