Good hotel for the budget price. Rooms clean and comfortable. Only sit-down shower without curtain which proved interesting! Complimentary breakfast satisfactory. Free WiFi accessible throughout the hotel and a computer is available for use in the lobby.
Most attractions within walking distance (fortunate as metro and latterly trams and buses on strike).
Staff provided excellent service as well as daily updates on the transport strike.
Other comments have mentioned the situation of the hotel as being unsettling. The area is perfectly safe although the Chinese and Bangladeshi neighbourhoods are close by with groups of men congregating in the street to talk late into the evening. This is probably the reason for previous reviewers' consternation.

Room Tip: Some rooms have view of the Acropolis.

This hotel was priced really well, included breakfast, we had a nice large balcony at our room and the view from the roofdeck was unbeatable. We watched the lights turn on at the monuments across town every night while enjoying cocktails and each other. The neighborhood was fine - to get from the sites to the hotel, and everything we wanted to see and do in Athens was walkable from the hotel. On our last day we were leaving really early so the staff offered to pack our breakfast. Sure enough, first thing in the morning they handed us brown bags of food. This hotel was an excellent choice and I would stay there again.

Central location, easy to walk to Acropolis. Easy acces from and to airport. Friendly staff who speaks fluent english. Information from staff in good time - there was a strike one day and the day before the strike the staff had put up a poster by the elevators to make sure that all the guest had the relevant information.
Not right next to metro but not that far away that it was a problem. Breakfast and bar on the roof from 6 o'clock in the evening - nice view of the city and Acropolis. Not the most exciting breakfast but quite OK - coffe, tea, juice, toast, cerials, yougurt, cheese, ham...
The neighbourhood may not look that safe at first sight but we did not feel insecure going home in the evening.

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor, which was nice, because some of the buildings opposite the hotel are quite...

Everything you have the right to expect - and more! This reasonably priced hotel delivers all that they promise. It's central, clean, well run, good breakfasts, modern well decorated rooms, decent bathrooms, safe for valuables, some rooms with views of Acropolis (and management who try hard to deliver on promises if views requested), Wi Fi, TV, AC, Roof Terrace, 2 Lifts (so no waiting around). 5th floor is best. (Breakfast on 7th). But what really makes this Hotel so special is the really helpful staff, especially the Reception Staff. Nothing seemed like too much trouble. Reliable recommendations e.g. First class local authentic Greek family restaurant, complete with Rembethika music (on a Friday afternoon!) - within 100 yards and within miniutes of our arrival, we were tucking in to Mythos, and top notch local cuisine - eat where the locals eat! Stupidly I forgot to pack some prescription drugs. No problem - reception looked up and telephoned local late night Pharmacy (Saturday evening mind!). 10 euros later, sorted! Imagine trying to do that in UK? Yes, the location is City Centre and decidedly urban - but we had no problems or difficulty with those less fortunate than ourselves. Greece has problems, Athens has problems - name a modern City which doesn't! Evripides Hotel is situated in the heart of Athens in an area characterised by shoe trade, central meat & fish markets, spices, hardware etc. - a trading area. It's alive. It's interesting. It's vibrant. Several good local restaurants. We walked everywhere within city centre - didn't need to take a cab once. 14 euros buys weekly ticket for all buses, trams and Metro. We caned it! Panathinaikos (Olympic stadium), Piraeus, Glyfada to name but a few. Love Athens. Love Greece and definitely would go back to Evripides Hotel!

Room Tip: If you request a room with a view of The Acropolis, you can be sure Management will do their best to...

This hotel is perfect when you are looking for an affordable hotel not too far from the Athens sights. The hotel is clean, breakfast is good (just simple bread, yoghurt, etc) and there is a rooftop terrace with views of acropolis where breakfast is served and where drinks are served after 6PM every evening.
The neighborhood is a bit scruffy but the plus side is that the food market (GREAT value for money if you are looking for fresh fruit, olives, nuts) and a lot of great spices shops are around the corner from the hotel.
It didnt feel unsafe - not even in the evenings, but I am sure it could feel unsafe for women alone walking around at night.
All in all great value for money and very friendly and helpful staff 24/7!
Wifi works in the lobby of the hotel; didnt work in the rooms.
