Dorian Inn Hotel Athens
Ranked #93 of 285 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Thankfully we booked our stay at the Dorian before we read all the negative reviews on TripAdvisor. Safe to say we were expecting 3 nights of squalor, with regular attacks from prostitutes and smack addicts - but when we got there we were shocked to see what was a normal district in Athens. It may not be the nicest area, but that doesn't matter. We were in Athens to see the sights, and so we jumped on the metro at Omonia (5 minutes walk away if that), and stayed in the centre until later on at night - we walked to and from Omonia station countless times and didn't encounter any of the aforementioned prostitutes or druggies. There was a strong police presence which people have complained about but I for one would rather that. The hotel itself was lovely - and the pool bar is breathtaking. We got to see both a regular and superior room and they were both nice.

Booked a superior room with Easyjet holidays, supposed to have a partial Acropolis view. Room given was basic, so complained & they did automatically change the room. But there was no view, only of the noisy street and abandoned hotel across the road. The superior room, isn't, it's clean and what would be a standard room in an Ibis. The basic room they gave us at 1st, was just that. The aircon worked in neither room, in the summer it would be unbearable. However the roof top bar is the saving feature of this hotel. It is a great view of the Acropolis, unfortunately the restaurant doesnt serve Greek food, burger & chips is not what I wanted, but the beers at €3 were reasonably priced. The pool is very small, but in the heat of summer would be a blessing, there is really very little room to sit around it, & no chairs were provided, but it was Easter & V quiet. Breakfast was fie, the usual, eggs, cold meats, cheese, yogurt. The bread in Greece is amazing, so fresh and tasty so having no toaster wasn't a problem, it was very quiet so mayb they didn't have as much choice as usual, but it was more than adequate . It is the area itself that is also a problem. I was there 4 days and everyday witnessed prositutes with clients, groups of men just loitering around, at night we chose to walk in the road rather than on the path, definitely wouldn't want to stay there as a female traveler on my own.

Room Tip: Basic rooms are just that, aircon doesn't seem to work in any room.

We were in Dorian inn Hotel at the end of March. The room was dirty and especially the bed-cover was a place for the growth of Insects, my boyfriend has been bite by some of them and had two pimples at the front and the back of the body and they became extremely itchy in the future 9 days. I have put on full sleeping suits and therefore protected. observing the pimples we found that it was maybe resulting from bite by an mouth of insect because at top of the pimple there were two small symmetrical wholes. we had a nightmare.

It was not finished, we had chosen the hotel because the central location and close to the taxi point and metro station. however, in the morning we are likely 100 meters away from the Hotel, and robbed by several dangerous people when we walk to the square. they have taken the camera and hundreds of cash. the location is more likely a trap that likely lots people waiting nearby for a whole night to rob or steal from tourists. moreover, the outlook of the hotel and the street is not that luxury you see from the picture, it was more 'dark and grey'.. the outside of the hotel and the street is full of those dangerous people and I have seen some of them peeing outside and throwing rubbishes everywhere.

Do a google satellite you will see what the real situation over there. Plz consider those issues when you trying to choose a hotel. Dont suffer.

Some people seem to fear it's proximity to Omonia Square but there is nothing to fear at all! We had a perfectly safe stay and for us the location was ideal (as we spent half our time in Monestiraki and Gazi). We were right in the middle of all Athens has to offer. The room was modest but clean, loved having a balcony (all rooms do), and the daily breakfast included was great... I am not turned on to greek yogurt and fresh honey! Mmmm... The best thing about this hotel is the roof-top view! Stunning.

Room Tip: Ask for high floor, front facing.

I had the chance to stay in Doria in hotel and i admit that i was surpised for the quality of the service , the room facilities and the pool bar at the top of the hotel!!
I defenetly recomend it to all as it is in a walking distance for the subway, shops and sights .

Room Tip: Better to book one in the front and as close to the top as possible

Dorian Inn

THE FACTS! & good for the price.

CHECK IN – was smooth no problems
ROOM - I stayed in two different rooms both were fine nothing special everything worked.
The first room was a bit small (I was traveling alone at the time) with a terrible view of a rundown dirty ally. The second room that my girlfriend joined me in staying in was more spacious and had a nice sized balcony with a view from the front of the hotel.
STAFF – The staff were nice and helpful with directions and even called and booked a tour to the Temple of Poseidon for me instead of just handing me a brochure. I don’t recall my room getting cleaned to often.
This hotel may have gotten a pretty Bland review if not for the Roof. On the roof you will find the restaurant, bar, and pool.
POOL – the pool itself is fine nothing out of the ordinary but it’s the panoramic view of the surrounding city of Athens that makes it great.
RESTAURANT – The restaurant and Bar are great they really made this average hotel come alive with a bit of fun and good food at a great price the 360 from the roof at night while eating dinner or socializing over a drink with some new friends was awesome with the postcard view of the Parthenon atop the Acropolis and all lit up… good times.
Some things I didn’t really like was that the hotel was not in the best part of town but far from the worst and a bit of a hike to the famed Plaka market. The nearest walk-in bank was also a bit of a trek.

Room Tip: Get a room in the front of the hotel over looking the main street. the rest have horrible views.

Rooms were clean, washroom was interesting (shower was very small and only had a curtain, not sure if it is because we're used to north american showers but the bathroom was always soaked everytime we used it.) None the less, it was clean. Highlight was the rooftop pool/bar/restaurant. Spent a lot of time up there, great atmosphere.
