“Clean, friendly, standard accommodation”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

The Acropolis House hotel is ideally located in the heart of Plaka in Athens. This makes sightseeing, shopping and eating very convenient. The hotel is over 100 years old and they had a room to accommodate a couple with a teenage son. The front desk people were genuinely helpful and were glad to share any information that they had. Breakfast was good; it was pretty standard fare but the difference was that much of it was homemade (fresh croissants, homemade fig jam). I would highly recommend this hotel.

Nice and clean, the staff is excellent, they provide helpful tips all the time, the location is probably the best in Athens. We used Dimitris for traveling, the best you can have, extremely friendly person and never rush and is always in time.
Hotel receptionist Jasmin and Andreas are great, better will be hard to find. Hope to see you soon

This was my first time in Athens, and I found that the Hotel Acropolis House which is located in the Plaka district was the perfect location for someone who likes to walk. Jasmine and Andreas were always cheerfully ready to help at the front desk, and all of the staff were exceptionally kind and friendly. You got the feeling that there was nothing that they wouldn't do for you if you just asked. The hotel is old, but it was immaculately clean, and it was an exceptional bargain since it also included breakfast. There was a computer available in the front sitting room for those of us who do not travel with internet capability. If you don't mind the walk-up, you can get a room on the 4th floor where you have a splendid view of the Acropolis, and it is really quite spectacular at night. The Hotel Acropolis House is a hidden gem with fantastic staff.

Room Tip: Top floor has a view of the Acropolis, but the hotel is a walk-up; so you need to be ready for the s...

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.

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
