Stayed here 3 nights and found the hotel to be centrally located. Around 15 minutes by foot to the Plaka area and Monastiraki (the flea market). Friendly staff. Not many restaurants in the immediate area but there are one or two cafe's close by. The hotel restaurants for lunch and dinner were good but possibly a bit pricey in comparison to restaurants in the Plaka area which I guess is to be expected. The breakfast spread was fantastic ranging from a cold section, to hot breakfast, breads, yogurts etc. Rooms were a bit small, average, with a small flat screen TV and minibar. Some amenities such as toothbrush, toothpaste and shaving kit were not provided while the shampoos, bath foam etc were. As a 4 star boutique, I expected these amenities to be provided as well. Wifi was free and fast and was available in the rooms as well as public areas. The rooftop garden restaurant is probably the highlight of the hotel. The hotel does not have the same 'professionalism' that one might expect at one of the more popular chains of hotels, but there was nothing to complain about. Overall it was a good stay and would recommend the place.

This hotel was recommended by our travel agent as good value & in a good location. I suppose it represents value in a city centre venue.
It was clean, if not a little tired. We spent 3 nights initially & then returned for a further night after a 2 day tour. Consequently we experienced 2 rooms. Cleanliness was consistent and so was the decor (tired) in both. The view from the roof to bar was excellent, but the barman had the best view when pouring the drinks! The layout could've been better. Also on the terrace bar, most evenings there was a pianist singing some easy listening songs catering for the elderly coach tour!!
The staff were all helpful & pleasant enough, though the waiter at breakfast was very assertive with the seating arrangements, 2 people couldn't possibly sit at a 6 seater table to see out the window of an empty breakfast room!
The food was as expected in Greece.
Overall I was not disappointed by the hotel, but believe calling it an 'exclusive hotel' is stretching it a bit. It's a tourist class hotel that serves its purpose.
Next time in Athens I'll return to Monisteraki, Plaka or Syntagma areas even though they are noisier areas, access to all the sightseeing is easier.

The rooms are modern, large, clean with comfortable beds and linens. The bathrooms are modern, very clean and also spacious. We thought the hotel was well situated; we walked to the Acropolis (under 3/4 mile), stopping at shops along the way. The hotel concierge recommended a family restaurant, where we stopped on our way back from the Acropolis. I can't remember the name of the place, but the owner was friendly and the food excellent. We sat outside with a view of the Acropolis. On another occasion, we walked to the Plaka neighborhood, where there are many shops and tavernas to explore. The staff at the Callirhoe was very pleasant, especially a doorman by the name of "George." We went to the rooftop restaurant/bar twice, one only for drinks, and the other time for dinner. The view is unbeatable - we really enjoyed eating and drinking with the magnificent view of the Acropolis lit up at night. The bartender was very friendly and engaging. Breakfast was more than adequate, with various choices of typical breakfast items. We returned once, and we will do so again if we are lucky to be in Athens again.

The location is mostly good although it is just slightly on the wrong side of the strip club district. The staff are pretty nice. The lobby certainly looks nice. The rooms are nothing special at all, very average, but clean. The in-room wifi works for us (in the cheap section on the 6th floor). We noticed that some of the rooms have 'hardwood' floors which I'd prefer as they seem cleaner, our carpet was a bit dingy. A few other quirks in our room were unpleasant (the mirror in the bathroom faces a wall rather than you, the door jam could be easily broken down with a good kick). The view in the restaurant is kinda nice, although it looks kinda stodgy. We paid 90 USD a night for a last minute, shoulder season room. At that price I was happy enough. Just don't expect any real 'boutique' except for the lobby.

PS. Is this useful? I appreciate a helpful rating! :-)

The hotel is particularly well located being close to the Acropolis and to the Plaka, old town area. The staff were always helpful, the first floor lounge was a very pleasant place to use WIFI, the rooms clean and wel fitted and a good breakfast. But it was the view from the rooftop restaurant and the pleasant waiter that we will always remember.

I would really put this at 3.5 if I could. We stayed at the Athenian Callirhoe Hotel for four nights in May.

The location is very good. It's a 5 minutes walk to the New Acropolis Museum and only a few minutes to the Plaka. The rooms are perfectly fine for a European hotel. We had WiFi all over the hotel, including both our rooms and it was probably the strongest signal of any place we stayed at in Greece. The hotel bar on the top floor is a great place to see the Acropolis, although the drinks are mighty pricey. Please note that if you get a coupon for "welcome drinks" it does not include alcoholic drinks - just coffee, tea, or soft drinks.

That being said, we were pretty unimpressed by the hotel staff (apart from the hotel bartender, who was very nice and friendly). The receptionist was not very warm or friendly, and the staff at breakfast were plain rude. I realize the breakfast area is very busy, but it was almost impossible to get the staff's attention to get silverware or coffee cups for our table. When we did get their attention, they were not nice about it at all. This is a stark contrast to everywhere else we stayed at in Greece, where the staff were very nice.

Room Tip: Choose an interior room. We stayed here on both ends of our trip - the first time, we had a room on...
