“Good location, stingy host”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The location of the hotel is ideal for exploring the Plaka and is walking distance to most of the big attractions in Athens. However, the hotel service could be better. Each time you leave your hotel room to have breakfast, the staff take it upon themselves to switch off the air con in your room. This is frustrating when you have to call reception to ask for it to be switched back on when you return. Also, breakfast is very basic eg cheese slices, ham, cornflakes, yoghurt and bread with the odd cake thrown in. Be sure to arrive for breakfast between 6.30am and 8.30am otherwise you will find that breakfast has been taken away shortly after 8.30am. Bear in mind, the bathrooms are very small and compact and the double beds are more like midi size beds. Furthermore, the service staff do not replace the shampoo and shower gel so it's likely you will have to ask reception.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th floor so you can have a view of the Acropolis.

We stayed at Adonis Hotel for 4 nights it was so central to everything that we basically could walk everywhere but chose to take buses, trains due to the heat in Athens. The rooftop bar was a great place for breakfast and an evening drink to view the south wall of the Acropolis and a tiny view of part of the top of the Parthenon. We had to remember to ask reception to turn the air conditioner on or else the room was very hot. The room and bathroom were small but we were hardly in the room as there was so much to do and see. The hotel is noisy depending on how considerate the guests are when arriving or leaving early and banging their doors or using the stairway. Staff were helpful with directions and stored our bags on our last day until we were due to leave. Would stay there again for the location.

The localization in Plaka is very good!!! But the hotel is bad. It's clean at least... But the breakfast is a joke. Me and my friend came to the breakfast 1 hour after its finish and the waiters didn't replace more food and drinks. Everything was endining, and some foods finished.
Ah, the shower.... awful..... and our bathroom had a bad smell.

Stayed here for two nights. Conveniently located in the Plaka district, on a quiet pedestrian-only side street. Ideal location for walking to all the main attractions: Acropolis and Acropolis Museum, Syntagma Square, the Metro. Although the decor is very basic, the hotel is very clean, good hot showers, although our room had a tiny bathroom. There is a reasonably varied breakfast, cereal, fruit, ham, cheese and a fabulous view of the Acropolis, floodlit at night, from the rooftop bar. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. Good value in a great location.

After carefully researching and reading lots of reviews this hotel was excellent. In a quiet location in the Plaka, easy walking distance from the bus/train at Syntagma Square. All staff were friendly and helpful. The basic breakfast exceeded my expectations with a wonderful way to start the day on the fifth floor looking at The Acropolis. To activate the air conditioning you need to ask as it was controlled by the reception staff - it was very quiet and set at a comfortable temperature. We stayed on the third floor which had a large balcony which looked directly across into the opposite hotel's rooms.

Room Tip: Fourth floor rooms would have the best views yet despite booking six months in advance they wouldn...

This hotel is a great value and quality for your money. Jannis and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful in guiding us to places we wanted to visit, and making certain we were always comfortable. Great breakfast on the 5th floor with Acropolis view is included. Rooms are comfortable and spotless. Adonis is situated on a quiet street with no vehicle traffic. Excellent location near Syntagma ( with bus & metro stops and the parliament buildings with changing of the guards), the Agora, Plaka for shopping and restaurants, and the Acropolis and Museum. There are little vegetable and fruit markets, cafes and a health food store and pharmacy nearby. They have a reliable taxi source day or night! Good WIFI. We would love to return to this great hotel and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: The 4th floor has great view of Acropolis and there is an elevator.

This is a great budget hotel located in a traffic free [a very useful thing in Athens!] street in the Plaka area. You will find yourself within walking distance of all the sights and just around the corner from Plaka's vibrate restaurants and shops.
The hotel..... the rooms are a good size for a budget hotel with a small bathroom, fab shower and hot water any time we needed it. It is clean, really clean, our bed linen was changed every day as were the towels, you don't get that in a lot of upmarket hotels. Best of all was the balcony, with chairs a table and a shady canopy.
Breakfast was adequate but could maybe do with being re-thought judging by the amount of cake and biscuits etc left each day. The view is breathtaking.
Top tip..... ask for a room if possible at the end of the corridor away from the stairs. On some nights there are late arrivals and for some inexplicable reason feel they can continue their conversation at full pitch with little respect to guests who are trying to sleep after a hard day sightseeing.
If you are travelling to Athens and don't want to spend a fortune on a hotel which happens to be on on a very busy road, then stay here.
