Reviewed February 16, 2012

I have used the Hotel Achilleas for about 3 visits to Athens, for one night or more, to look around Athens on our way to our 'Greek Home' on the Island of Zakynthos. You will be assured of a very warm welcome from all the staff who are on hand to answer any queries you may have. The breakfasts are excellent with plenty of choose from to suit most tastes. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable without clutter. We would recommend this hotel to anybody, for comfort, great value, and a very central positioin. Plenty of good tavernas nearby,.

The Hotel Achilleas is a hotel that I have used on and off for the past 40 years. In recent years, especially for the Athens Olympics, it has had a a major refit which has improved radically.

The rooms are minimalist but spacious and the hotel itself is very unfussed in the way it attends with customers...efficient and effective.

The best thing, for me at any rate, about the Achilleas is its location. It is really central. just below Syntagma Square, with great access to the extended Underground railway sations at Monastiraki and Syntagma Square. Very easy to get to and from Athens Airport and the port of Piraeus. Ancient Athens and the Plaka are only short walks away.

Breakfast was adequate without being spectacular, with the staff courteous and friendly.

As a management consultant and linguist by profession, I regularly had work to do in and around Athens and I have stayed in a variety of places over a forty year period. The Achilleas will give you good, clean, comfortable accommodation and facilities without destroying the budget.

The Achilleas is centrally located a couple of blocks from Syntagma square. The rooms are very clean and bright, the staff very friendly and helpful and breakfast is excellent. We enjoyed our four QUIET nights immensely.

Basic *** hotel; but great value for such a central location and handy for metro, bus station to airport, sightseeing trips. Staff friendly and helpful (good English too - so no need for tortured Greek). Rooms simple but clean and towels/toiletries good quality. Breakfast help yourself buffet: plentiful - mixed Greek (lovely yoghurts, fruit, jams, rolls, cakes and honey, cheeses, cold meats) with UK (eggs boiled, scrambled,sausages, toast). Internet in lobby, and Wi-fi extends to breakfast room. Small, but classy art-deco lift.

This is not a luxury hotel, or a boutique hotel, this is just a very basic 3* hotel, located in the very center of Athens.
Rooms are small but convenient, everything is clean, and breakfast is nice.
You can walk from there to the main attractions in Athens.
For us it was perfect as we weren't in Athens for the hotel, but mostly for the city !

The hotel wasn't the Ritz but then we hadn't paid Ritz prices. The only real downside was that the beds weren't great but they weren't a complete nightmare - just pretty hard.

We stayed for 5 nights and the 4 of us shared a family room which basically was 2 single beds and 2 trundle beds. The bathroom was tiny but had enough although the shower was an exercise in dexterity as you sit in the half bath and hold the hand held shower over and use the shampoo.

The hotel has no wireless internet in the rooms but the reception and the breakfast room on the mezzanine do have it. We found that spending some time in the evening preping photos etc we could take the laptop to breakfast and then upload some shots, send emails and keep in touch wit people - people were even skyping from the breakfast room.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your comments. They make all us improve in our daily work. Hotel Achilleas is a small hotel (next to Syntagma square), ideally located to become a great meeting point to visit Athens by metro, by bus or even by foot, as we are in the very city center, surrounded by major tourist attractions of the city.

At this very moment we do not have Wireless Internet in the rooms, instead we provide to all our guests this service Free of charge in the public areas. Thank you very much and we really look forward to welcoming you soon again!

Best Regards.

Basic hotel but excellent location, close to all the sites and right in Plaka. Safe to walk around at night and close to restaurants/metro etc. Definitely a place to leave your bags and explore, missing some creature comforts but we were here to see Athens not saty in a hotel. Breakfast basic, dinning room always crowded. Good for a short stay......I would think you would start to miss some comfort if staying longer than 4 nights. Overall I would recommend because of the location.
