“Good hotel in a very convenient location ”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful and helpful staff that greet you and take care of all of your needs. Very central location, can't really be any closer to the Acropolis, metro and many restaurants than this. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast buffet was great and fresh with much variety. Very glad we chose this hotel for our family's stay in Athens!

We had a small room that worked out Ok for the three of us (my husband , 22 year od daughter and myself). We had a small balcony which helped. The location is perfect for the Metro, Acropolis and the Plaka. There are lots of food spots and shopping very close by and even a grate" mini market" just a few feet away. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Good breafast every morning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

Without doubt the best thing about this hotel is the location on a quiet shady street minutes from the Parthenon. You can walk to every major site except the archeology museum, and that's a four-stop metro ride. That alone makes the hotel worth the stay. Other pluses are a friendly staff and a good (but not exceptional) breakfast buffet. The spacious lobby gives the impression of a solid old fashioned hotel, but the first two rooms we were shown had mold on the bathroom ceilings. Fortunately, they had a free room without the mold, but it wasn't super clean. Nothing egregious, but the floor clearly hadn't been fully vacuumed. All the rooms we saw were small, basic, and without much room for luggage. We didn't spend much time in the hotel - Athens has too much to see and do - so nothing about the hotel stopped us from having a great visit. But the overall feeling is that of a tour group hotel that needs a renovation.

Room Tip: No point being high up. There's no view of the parthenon.

Dear marcopolo1964,

At first we would like to thank you for choosing Airotel Parthenon for your stay in Athens.

We would like to apologize for the negative impression you were left with. The truth is that some of our rooms need a renovation and I am very happy to inform you that this has been already scheduled.

We are happy of having you as a guest and it will be our pleasure to welcoming you again in the future.

Kind Regards,

Good value, clean and quiet hotel, smack dab in the middle of all tourist attractions in Athens. Basic but clean rooms. Close to Plaka, Acropolis and all the other tourist places. Breakfast is great. Staff is friendly.

We slept 3 nights in this hotel in April during Easter period and we wouldn't recommend it . In fact while it's very true that the location is fantastic just 3 minutes walk from the Acropolis Museum and the Plaka , nevertheless the hotel has a shabby atmoshere starting from the hall
Our triple room was large but very basic and outdated , with a bad smell , the first instict was to run away , however we arrived late eveining and we din't have the strenghts and the energy to look for something else.
We asked the possibility to change the room but the hotel was fully booked .
The hotel doesn't seem well maintained and it looks quite old , it is very different from the pictures on the website, breakfast is ok.
At the end we decided to stay because the location is absolutely great and we only used the hotel to sleep and we were all day out , however coming back at night in such an unattractive place wasn't very relaxing.
Staff was ok but nothing special , if you are looking for an hotel in the area , then we would recommend the Athens Gate one, although price is much more expensive than the one we paid.

Great location, friendly staff and decent breakfast. Hotel staff was very kind and helpful. Rooms were very basic and not “4 star” quality but served their purpose. No irons in hotel – only option is to dry clean! Hotel is right in the Plaka area, very close train station, restaurants and Parthenon. We were put into a non-licensed cab at the airport – the driver took us to the gas station and when we arrived at the hotel tried to charge us 56 Euro when the ride should have been a flat 35 Euro. After hotel reception fought with him, he brought the price down to 45 Euro. Be aware of the cabs you are getting in to – make sure the cab has a company name on the side otherwise, the cabbie can charge whatever they want.

This hotel is in an amazing central location, it is a 3 star not 4 however the rooms were clean tidy and fairly large, modern bathrooms. The service of the staff were outstanding and the breakfast was also above average.

I can not fault the hotel nor staff bar one employee, when asked me where we originated from, he began to argue with me above Macedonia. This on the geographical map. And to have an argument of this did spoil my stay. You need to embrace tourists not debate political issues with them. Leave manners from your co-workers.
