Attalos is in a great location within walking distance to the entrance to the Acropolis and Monastiraki square. From some of the rooms on the upper levels and the rooftop bar you have great views of the acropolis. The rooms are decent and the ones facing the street have balconies where you can sit and enjoy your breakfast. They offer a nice continental breakfast if you want to pay for that as well. They offer free wifi and coffee in the afternoons, and the staff is helpful if you have any questions about how to get where you need to go.

Room Tip: rooms on the upper levels offer a better view

The location of the hotel is perfect, just five minutes walking from monasteraki square and plaka area. You can see the acropolis from your room window and the view from the hotel terrace is great. The service is very good. We had a problem with the shower, we called to the reception and the plumber was there in just 10 minutes. Maybe it needs to update some appliances for example the tv

Attalos Hotel was the perfect place for us. Here is what I loved about this hotel: it is very easy to get to from the airport--just hop on the Metro, it is in a great location, the staff is wonderful, it is very safe, the price is right, and I am saving the best for last here--the view from the rooftop of the Acropolis is so beautiful--as you sitting up there sipping your glass of wine--you have to remind yourself that you are staying at a budget hotel. I loved it here.

I booked online after reviewing Matt Barrett's extensive website on all things Greece. I also had good reviews from many others so it seemed like a pretty good deal. It was and exactly as we expected. It is located in a very central location and walking distance to everything you would want to see.

The breakfast was ok, European, had variety and was not anything fancy.

The only thing I might do differently next time is find a place that had a pool. It was very hot and a pool would have been great to cool off and would be refreshing...

Room Tip: You won't spend much time in the room, you'll be out touring so I would not bother with the...

I first was in Athens for a 23:30 flight layover from Eritrea to Rome in 1967 and I think the airline placed me in the precursor to this current hotel. The proximity to the north side of the Acropolis, the exceptional roof-top view, memories of drinking Ouzo looking at the lit Acropolis all came alive when I checked into this hotel and went up to the roof bar for a "wow" deja vu Ouzo experience.

17 days later into a long, work-related + some discretionary time visit to Athens I got to know the current Attalos Hotel well. Stay 17 days, you either love it, hate it, or just find it comfortable and ideal for an extended stay. I am in the latter category.

I have no complaints about the hotel. It performs a star above its rating, the desk staff are engaging and knowledgeable. Broadband is everywhere and in my room, and since this was mostly a business trip, I needed fast volume delivery and I got it. No hassle re passwords: Just log on.

They have an 8€ breakfast which is adequate but not sumptuous for those who like breakfast. I did it the first 3 days to get to mix with colleagues in the 2-week program I was participating in, but then reverted into my "I don't do breakfast" normal mode. I think the breakfast will be satisfying to those who want breakfast, but not a value for those who only want coffee.

Now to the rooftop bar & Violeta. The views from the rooftop bar of the Acropolis are exceptional. Only a special pricey room at the "A for Athens" hotel can compete. But the bar view here is far more economical.

I am an American living in Spain, frequently travelling for long stays in various parts of Europe and North Africa. One thing I have learned is not to expect American-style mixed-drinks in these locales. (Ask for a Martini, and they will ask red or white--meaning which vermouth with no hint of gin or vodka.)

Yet the bar here lists wide range of cocktails, mixed tall drinks, etc. Returning to my gay roots, from the cocktail menu I ordered a "Long Island Ice Tea" which is 5 liquors plus some coke, and no tea. Violeta's mix was perfect. So I learned that this is a bar where you can get any mixed drink Americans crave reliably executed when Vioileta bar tends.

I can't think of a better reason to stay at the Attalos and enjoy the roof-top bar with the exceptional Acropolis view, and enjoy Violetq's wonderful creations.

We stayed here on a 3 night stopover. It is easy too find from the Airport. You get off at Monastiraki Metro station and head up Athinas st towards Omonia Square. The staff are very friendly, the place is very clean. The bathroom is well fitted with a lovely sit in bath/shower. The rooms are very small, we didn't have a balcony and no view. We requested a double bed but got a twin. The air-conditioner worked wonderfully but the fridge only worked when you were in the room and put the key in the slot. I have stayed at other hotels where the fridge was on separate systems so worked when you were out of the room. The best of the hotel was it's location to the lively Monastiraki Square and walking distance to all the major archeological sites. The Roof Garden Bar is excellent, stays open late and I could just sit there and drink in the view of the Acropolis lit up for hours and it is cheap. We would definitely stay there again on a visit to Athens.

Room Tip: I wouldn't pay for a balcony as their really is no view unless you are on top floors.

The hotel itself is pretty blah, except for the night views from the rooftop. However, great location, walking distance from all important spots and the service is very good. The area is not pretty, but I don't get the reviews about questions of safety. We are 60 and walked late at night without any concern for safety. A/C worked great for us. Yes, the rooms were small and the hotel itself was a bit tired, but our room was quiet and Athens is a place for walking if you are in t he right spot.

Room Tip: 311 was plenty quiet and had a little view of the Parthenon.
