Very well situated, near acropolis and Plaka.
Be carefull to take a room with climatisation if you come in summer !
Rooms are clean but the bathroom is not always in the room, so it's better to ask before.
Breakfast is cheap and good.

Christos is very kind and cheerful.

Not too far walk to the acropolis from the hotel. The area seemed a little downtrodden, but felt safe. The rooms worked, we had air conditioning one night, but couldn't get it for the second night. so it was a little hot, but there was a fan. Christos was helpful and held bags for us. Good stay, but not at the top of my list.

“Excellent base, best value and location”



Marble House is perfectly located south of Acropolis. Easy walking distance to the museum of Acropolis and the entrance of Parthenon. The location definitely can’t be beaten as it’s privileged being inside a small calm street. Christos and his parents were very helpful and attentive for any kind of question and advise. This is an additional benefit if you book a family-run hotel.

Room were clean and seemed recently renovated, great value for money.

At the beginning of our visit in Greece it was extremely important for us the WiFi connection and to be honest Marble House had the fastest Internet connection we experienced in comparison to other properties.

With no second thought we will stay at Marble House next time in Athens… Thank you, you were all great!

I have been travelling for a long time in Europe and stayed in budget properties, this hotel definitely exceeded my expectations. The place is a gem! Nicely decorated rooms, fantastic bathrooms, quite, clean, inside a charming dead-end alley and with the greatest staff.

In regards to location Acropolis museum, Parthenon and the area of Plaka are within 10-15 minutes walk.

WiFi is free and functions great inside the room. There is also an Internet corner in the lobby area. Special thanks to Christos for his nice welcome and guidance throughout our stay

Do you expect something more from a budget property?

Thanks to Tripadvisor reviews we found this small, and cozy hotel. The location is fantastic next to all the touristic attractions on feet. Bus stop and and Metro stop few minutes far.

Both room and bath were extremely clean, quite and well maintained. Christos, the owner, told us that bathrooms have been remodeled last year at the same classic style of the hotel. And that’s true; they have done a nice job.

We aslo met the rest of the family who were excellent hosts and helpful with almost anything we requested.

For such a good bargain (40 Euro for a double room with balcony overlooking the quite street above) is the best deal in town, especially if you consider that besides the walking proximity of major sites the neighborhood is very quite and safe! Next time in Athens… Marble House will be our choice.

The Hotel has an excellent location!! 4min walk from Metro Station, 1min walk from the bus to National Archeological Museum and only 10min walk to Acropolis Museum and Plaka!! It is located in a safe area, very close to all public transportation and most of the Athens monuments!!
It is very quite since it is located to a dead end street. It is also very clean with beautifully renovated bathrooms and colorful rooms!! It has Wi-Fi connection and an internet corner!! A very economical Hotel for what it offers!!
I would highly recommend this Hotel for holidays and business trips!! Don’t forget to ask Christos to give you his valuable recommendations for restaurants, shopping and sightseeing!! He is always willing to give you directions!!

This hotel was a great place to stay and we really enjoyed it. The only thing I would say is just make sure you are aware that not all the rooms come with air conditioning and if you want it you must specify when booking! It also costs an additional €6 but is definitely worth it!! We stayed in the stifling heat of July and had a couple of nights without air conditioning that were way too hot.

Apart from that great staff, clean rooms and good fans!
