Great mojitos with a backdrop of the Acropolis. What more could you ask for? However, a bit of the crowded side but with this kind of view, that is to be expected. Not suitable at all for date nights but an amazing place to start your partying off in Athens.

This hotel may be small but it is perfect in every way! From reception to the roof top bar, the hearty breakfasts and of course the rooms with amazing views. Beats any 5 star hotel on all counts! Trust me - book it now..you wont be disappointed!

The most horrible stay at a hotel ever! Instead of sleeping through the night, we were just listening the crew of the hotel moving furniture around at the club of the hotel two floors up. Called the receptionist three times but he couldn’t help much. In the morning we met a neighbor who had the same problem, but he said he was happy because the previous day he was on a higher floor with even more noise. The representative of the hotel said that he can’t refund customers that couldn’t sleep at night. “A for Athens” is by far the worst hotel I have ever been

Room Tip: It seems like the crew is moving furniture around from 2:00 (when the club closes) until the morning when the top floor is ready for breakfast. when booking the receptionist advised us not to stay on the fifth floor (one floor below the bar). We stayed on the 4th and it was still really loud..

Whether this is your first visit to Athens or, as me, you have been there many times, you should definitely experience A for Athens. The position and the view are amazing. Go for the Acropolis view room on one of the higher floors, the view - day and night - is one to be remembered and cherished. I would not hesitate saying this must be the most stunning view of the whole of Athens. You can even see the Acropolis and the beautiful Monastiraki square while you shower, thanks to a cleverly designed window that, through your bedroom and main window, affords splendid views. The rooms are comfortable and nicely furnished with parquet flooring and wooden wardrobes. Abundant space to work, thanks to a wall-long desk. The price paid is well below the real value of this property. Breakfast are good and plentiful, served on the 6th floor cafeteria with - again - more fantastic views.

The Monastiraki metro station is literally by the hotel, making travelling from/to the airport and anywhere in Athens a breeze.

If you are a light sleeper, do not forget your ear plugs, as the square below is very noisy day and night and Greek drivers love their horns. Late and loud music also oozes from the hotel cafeteria that caters for locals as well, thanks to its views. The persistent flow of young crowds at all times of the day (and night) makes the only (and tiny) lift permanently busy, which is a problem if you are on a high floor or need to carry luggage. You supposedly get priority as a hotel guest, but this is difficult to manage, especially if you are heading downstairs from your room. Do not let these details turn you away from this hotel though. The view awaiting for you will repay all and any little inconvenience.

Room Tip: Go for an a Acropolis View room on one of the higher floors: the scene will take your breath away every time you glance at the window.
