President Hotel
Ranked #131 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I go to Athens often to meet some friends and all the time I need an hotel I stay at President. It is not the place to go for a romantic weekend or if you are looking for something special. Is the typical average business hotel (not an Hilton of course). Rooms are clean but dated, especially the bathrooms that need an hard refurbishment. The hall is wide and staff is decently polite. The hotel has some evident lacks such as the absence of directories book in the rooms and not free internet. Breakfast is absolutely average for an average hotel that has its bonus point in the position (Panormou area and metro is ten minutes walk and in any case there is always a taxi waiting in front of the hotel) and in the rates (around 70 euros for a room). The place to go if you want a clean but not impressive place.

The room was confortable and clean. The view was very nice. The rooftop pool is excellent, although the water was cold. The furniture is a bit run-down, but as long as it is clean, I don't mind. The bathroom ventilation is not good, so it can be very hot, humid, and ... smelly. You need to open the door between the room and the bathrrom, and the window of your room and problem solved :)
The staff is helpful, they helped print my e-ticket for free, but there was no freely available printer I could use. Buffet breakfast was great. I had to pay 15 euro for 24hrs of WiFi, and it was a very slow connection.

Pros: I got a big room and even bigger bathroom! Clean and spotless. Complementary toiletries and fresh towels every day. Friendly staff — each one of them. 10 minutes walk from the nearest metro. Great and cheap lunch and dinner menu too. Buffet breakfast with tons of continental choices. Decent selection of drinks in bars. I didn't use swimming pool, so can't comment on that.

Cons: AC was not working properly; always needed a bit of trial and error and also needed more than expected time to start showing its effect.

Room Tip: Go high! :-)

I stayed a President hotel for 4 nights and it was a good stay. The hotel is close to 2 metro stations (7 mins walk) and lots of shops around it.
The rooms are large with comfortable beds and clean bathroom. There is a safe in the room but it's a bit too small (couldn't fit the iPad in); TV could be of better quality.
The breakfast buffet was okay....nothing special to mention.
The staff at reception are friendly and always willing to help out.

Room Tip: I stayed in 2 rooms and they were both good (712 and 914)

Clean, quiet and good service except at the reception. We got a lot of "no we can't do that" "nooooo sorry, that is not included..." "nooooo we don't have free wifi". The biggest breakfast variety i have ever seen in any hotel in the world, and I'm from North America - land of the buffet. Good hotel overall, the rooftop patio bar is simply stunning, especially at night. Worth going there for a drink even if not staying at the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel during a friend's wedding in athens. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and quiet. The hotel's main activeity centered around the rooftop pool.. it was nice here, but quite crowded so service for food was slow. Nice breakfast and friendly staff at reception.

I stayed in this hotel last week for a couple of days. The rate of 71euros in a double room for single use, with breakfast is excellent while in Athens and especially if you have also have a car, as there is a parking lot underneath the hotel, and costs 10euros per day no matter how many times you leave or enter the hotel.

Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is excellent, great roof top pool with beautifull view, not of the Acropolis but still nice feeling of seeing some parts of Athens, has nice restuarant on the roof top with good food at reasonable rates for eating in a hotel.

Staff are okay, not that they are with smiles, but willing to help if you need anything, again for that kind of rate I cant fault the hotel at all, at about 400 meters there is a metro station so makes things even easier.

For short stay in Athens I will definately come back and stay at this hotel.
