We stayed but briefly but would love to stay again. The hotel was a real find with lots of character and charm. Room was small but clean and comfortable. The air con worked well but was noisy throughout the night. Breakfast was interesting, slightly unusual but Jasmine was a real treat! Very helpful with personality plus! The location was great and we would definitely recommend staying here.

This little hotel is the greatest. The front desk staff were outstanding and their service was exquisite. We could not have been happier with their knowledge, caring, and ability to be helpful! It is located in the Plaka within walking distance of most of the historic sites.

I chose the hotel because of the location, it is close to the X95 bus station, about 8-10 mins' walking. However, the room is too old and out-dated (I guess it has not been renovated for at least 15 or 20 years?), I hate to say this, but this is the oldest hotel I have ever stayed. The bathroom is so small that I can barely turn around (I'm a girl of small size). The air-conditioner is so noisy that I can not sleep well (very old model). The hotel really really needs update and renovation.
I am surprised why this hotel gets a high score in tripadviosr. Actually I have paid lower price for another much better hotel in Acropolis area, and chose Acropolis House for return trip just because we need to catch bus to x95.
If you only care about location and nothing else, chose this hotel. Otherwise think twice.

I stayed at the Acropolis for the second time when I visited Athens during my 75th birthday celebration. The hotel is fine. Clean. Safe. Not American/corporate. People you meet at breakfast are the kind of people you'd like to hang out with all day, but you can't ---- because you want to get out and about and see the museums and have some wonderful Greek food and ouzo. Jasmine will help you decide where to get the best food and how to get to the museum or wherever you want to go. And help you with the essential Greek phrases. "Fair eees tow."

I have stayed here several times over the past few years. The location is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. Yu have to like the feel of a B and B and walking up the stairs. It is a good price in this area of Athens. I will definitely stay again.

The location in the Plaka is convenient. My sister and I were able to walk to most of the sites, and used the metro very little. The fridge in the room was not turned on, so it was warm when we got there, but we were able to turn it on and it worked well. The wifi signal was very weak in our room, but we were able to use a neighboring hotel's wifi and the signal was good. We did not eat the breakfast, so I'm not sure how it was. The staff was excellent, very helpful and kind!! Our room had two beds, a full and a twin. The twin bed was VERY HARD!! --Not comfortable. I loved our little balconey overlooking the street. The value was good. I would stay there again. It was a decent place to sleep. We were gone all day touring, and didn't hang out at the hotel otherwise.

Room Tip: Request a room with a balconey.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Acropolis House is a preserved mansion of the last century, in excellent condition. It is consisted essentially of two different buildings together. The oldest of these is a stone manor house about 120 years old and the other is well-built four-floor building of 75 years. In 1965 it was modified to a hotel from the family Choudalakis, which operates since. Generally the hotel is a two star family business with character, providing security and full service to both families, and unique people who respect the identity of the hotel. In total the hotel has comfortable single, double and large rooms for families. The Hotel Acropolis House has a non smoking policy in all areas. Guests may smoke in the terrace of the first floor. Hotel Acropolis House is located at the gates of Plaka having so the advantage of being close to all the interesting places without the disadvantage of the hustle of the people and vehicles visiting the site. It is situated in a stunning location, either for professional or tourist as it is a 10-minute walk from the monument of Acropolis and the New Acropolis Museum, 3 minutes from Syntagma Square and the metro / bus and 2 minutes from the commercial and business center of Athens. Near the hotel there are parking, museums, pharmacies and the tourist information office. The hotel has a breakfast room, which served continental style breakfast very early in the morning for early morning flights (from 07.30 Until 10.30). There is luggage storage and safe for customers. Finally, Hotel Acropolis House has a library, with a rich collection, to borrow books from. This is himself occasionally enriched by the customers. ... more   less
