“THE HOTEL TO STAY IN!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2009

My daughter and I spent 3 days at the Parthenon, and not only was it situated in the best location for the Acropolis, Monastariki, and the Plaka districts, the restaurant at the top of the hill was lovely. The staff were amazing, very helpful, and pleasant. We walked the streets up until 11:oopm and were safe. Loved this hotel, and Athens.

Yes, I know it's been said before, by many other reviewers in Tripadvisor and elsewhere, but it definitely bears repeating -- the Parthenon Hotel could not be better situated for Athens tourists. On a quiet street at the edge of the Plaka, one street from the Akropoli metro station, two streets from the new museum, a few short blocks from the Acropolis entrance -- sightseeing, dining, shopping, and strolling are a pleasure when you are within a very short walk of your hotel. The rooms are bigger than many European hotel rooms we've stayed in and the breakfast is better. The air conditioning satisfies the most demanding North American tastes -- the frigid hallway outside our room was simply delicious upon our late-night return from the Greek islands. The WIFI was trouble-free, too. One tiny comment: the front desk staff is efficient and businesslike but (with two exceptions) I would not consider them welcoming or warm. Our maid, on the other hand, was absolutely charming and managed to be kind without speaking a word of English. I loved the street party atmosphere of this area and I'd recommend the Parthenon Hotel to anyone.

Myself and my partner stayed in the Parthenon Hotel for 3 nights in total in June. We arrived very late and the hotel staff were helpful in directing us to the main areas of athens so we could eat. The reception staff came across as very friendly and helpful throughout our stay and were able to make reservations for us at one of the most populated restaurants in athens. However, perhaps unknown to the hotel staff, although English, my partner can speak fluent Greek and unfortunately caught the hotel staff having a good laugh about one of the hotel guests and a complaint they had put in about dirty towels... which is a little bit worrying...

The hotel itself has an almost unbeatable location but i still think the hotel probably deserves one less star than it boasts. The breakfasts were rather 'plastic', the fruit wasn't fresh and the juice watered down for example. The rooms were very basic however ours was clean so we had a comfortable stay.

All in all a good stay bar a few issues, however the hotel is fairly pricey so I personally would hesitate before booking again here.

It is not only it's great location, 150 meters from the New Acropolis Museum and metro but the price for such location and amenities they offer is the best you can find anywhere in Athens. I can vouch for it. I am a Greek living abroad and going to Athens at least twice a year. On the top of all these the Hotel is very comfortable, offers a great breakfast and what on Earth would anyone want more? If you go to Athens, you will do much worse staying anywhere else than in Airotel Parthenon.

Stayed here for one night as a stop over before the Greek islands and that was one night too many.
We were very dissapointed with the room.
The top sheets on the beds were ancient and FILTHY. The pillows clearly hadnt been changed as there were hairs and various stains on them. Disgusting.
Ended up spreading our beach towels across the beds and sleeping on those!
Over priced hotel with very poor cleanliness.

I recently spent a couple of nights at this hotel in between trips to the islands and had a wonderful experience. The location is unbeatable...steps from the main entrance to the Acropolis and the metro station, and walking distance to all the main tourist sites of Athens. The hotel itself was clean and well-equipped, with a nice buffet breakfast included. The staff was also very helpful...we had some issues with lost baggage with our airlines, and the staff was great about helping us handle it. Finding a reasonably priced, decent hotel in Athens is not the easiest of tasks, and it was a real joy to find the Airotel Parthenon met and exceeded all our expectations.
