“Good accomodation near Syntagma and the metro station”
Reviewed August 2, 2011

I recently stayed at the Astor hotel in Athens and found the staff to be mostly friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and had a small balcony which was lovely to sit out on in the evening. We had a free breakfast which was served in the rooftop breakfast room. The terrace of the dining room had a breathtaking view of the Acropolis.

The Astor is located in an area with lots of interesting shops and cafes.

The only drawback was the expensive and intermittent WiFi access, which was a problem for us. Fortunately the restaurant next door (Chronos) had free WiFi - so we spent a lot of time there.

If WiFi isn't important I would highly recommend this hotel.

My family and I stayed at the Astor for 3 nights in June and then again for 3 nights in July 2011. We found the hotel well positioned as you could walk to all the main attractions, (acropolis, museums, temple of Zeus, Syntagma square and the changing of the guards, Lycabitus mountain, monastiraki and plaka).
The staff were very helpful and were very hospitable. Breakfast on the roof top was amazing. The food was good and the million $ view looking at the acropolis without another building blocking it, you couldn’t beat anywhere.
Rooms were clean and spacious however they needed a refurbish. We found the wallpaper falling off or torn in both rooms we had. (Didn’t alter our stay at all though)
Didn’t have a pool which in Athens in the middle of summer would be very inviting.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to be in the middle of everything.

Good hotel, located close to Syntagma Square, easy to get to airport and Pireus by metro, close to shopping street and Plaka.

Friendly hotel staff, but no free wifi.

Stayed at the Hotel Astor with a group of friends at the end of June. We were only in Athens for one night but it was definately a good choice of hotel. About 15 mins walk from the Acropolis and literally round the corner from Syntagama Square so lots of bars, restaurants and shops nearby.

We had a room for 4 people so it probably wasn't the best in the hotel, as you usually get put in the back when it's a large group but our room was clean and had all that we wanted for a one night stay. Although it was in the centre we didn't hear any noise either so it must have been well insulated.

Breakfast was continental and there was quite a bit of choice but one of the hidden gems of this hotel was the breakfast room which had a wonderful view of the acropolis. I think you could have a drink up there in the evenings too although we didn't.

It's a walk from Syntagma Square and Plaka. Metro is also nearby as well as the bus stop going to the airport. Very helpful staff.

We stayed at the Hotel Astor for 5 days/nights and thoroughly enjoyed the charming staff, the fabulous view of the Acropolis from the top floor breakfast room as well as the fresh fruit, eggs, coffee and choice of breads and cereals to start the day. The front desk staff were helpful with preparing work documents and when we left for an early morning flight the desk clerk quickly followed us out to the taxi and politely handed my puzzled husband a paper bag. To our surprise, they had packed us a picnic breakfast of eggs, croissants, and fruit. Such a lovely gesture.
We loved Athens, and the stay at this centrally located yet quiet hotel was a big part of our memorable trip.

We stayed at the Astor in total about 4 nights......it is well located in the Plaka district but what we loved best about this hotel was the fabulous view of the Acropolis from our bedroom and from the dining area....breathtaking!!!The morning buffets were generous and delicious, however, dinner was awful....I had a frozen preheated moussaka -yucky!! Niko was very helpful and friendly and was able to open our locked suitcase with special tools.....a lifesaver for us. We used the Astor as our home base....when we went to Meteora and then the islands, everyone welcomed us back warmly. The decor is a little shabby in the lobby, but I felt very safe and the rooms are clean with a balcony.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-smoking room with a good view
