      Great location near a metro, walking distance to restaurants etc. Nice clean rooms, with up to four beds. Very helpful and kindly staff! Only minus was the breakfast, very simple We would recommend the hotel to buy a toaster to improve......But still would highly recommend this hotel!.

      Overall, our stay at Rio Athens was satisfactory. Followed others' reviews to select Rio Athens and was thoroughly pleased with the results. The hotel it’s 2 minutes walk from the metro station “Metaxourghio”, for easy travelling. The best part about the service were the staff who helped to plan my sightseeing route and who highlighted items on my map, gave me tips and ferry tickets to the Greek islands. The room was comfortable & clean. The breakfast had a reasonable selection, enough to start the day & the coffee was good. There was also bar and restaurant downstairs serving Greek and Italian dishes at the beautiful terrace outside from the hotel. All in all a fantastic place to stay and we have already booked again for Christmas!

      Acceptable rooms in good condition.Lacklustre breakfast. Location is good for public transport, but not very safe feeling. Main drawback is seemingly unfriendly management making you feel like you are a bother. Staff were much more pleasant and helpful.

      This lovely 3 star Rio Hotel Athens is located in the citycenter, in a quiet pedestrian Odysseos street of "Metaxourghio" close to the metro station .Ideally located for sightseeing, discovery, shopping and entertainment, Rio Athens is just a short distance from the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, old town Plaka, an enchanting neoclassical neighborhood, , with its artistic flair, shops and cafes;.National Archaiological Museum, Monastiraki the flea market and bazaar, Psiri and Gazi, the hub of Athens nightlife, with a variety of restaurants and cuisine, bars and night clubs,all are very close too.
      Clean and tidy rooms, good breakfast, reasonable price and a fantastic central location. The hotel restaurant and bar downstairs, serves lovely Greek and Italian food, draught beer, refreshing drinks and cocktails. A great stay and thanks to all at Rio.

      We stayed in the hotel for five nights in the beginning of April 2011 with my family and the hotel turned out to be the perfect choice for us . A pleasant experience right from the start. The service was perfect from check-in to check-out. The staff was kind and served us well. The rooms were quiet,clean and also comfortable.The staff was helpful and friendly too. The hotel is located at the heart of the city in the oldest neighborhoud of athens called Metaxourgeio and was also really close to all the main attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel for a nice and relaxing vacation in athens.
