“Excellent location, fresh interior,friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

Fresh hotel is an excellent choice for a stay in Athens. Just 5 min walk from the Monastiraki station and the square. The location is very good for walking, tourist bazaar, visiting old quarter Plaka with many cute restaurants and of course - the Acropolis itself.
The hotel is very modern and very nice - big rooms, large bed, funky interior accents. Rich continental breakfast. Free wi-fi in the rooms. And take your swimming suit to enjoy the roof pool and the view to the Acropolis :-)
The personnel has a very friendly attitude. There was no problem to prolong our check-out time for free.
I strongly recommend the hotel!

Fresh hotel is definitely a hotel trying to be modern in Athens. While not the most glitzy, the lobby was well done and rooms were clean and spacious enough for European standards.

One major complaint would be the bathroom. While small, not the smallest in Europe, but the shower has a rainfall head and no door so water gets everywhere. This isn't normally a problem but the floors are super slippery and can be quite dangerous.

The breakfast included in the room price was superior. I really enjoyed it. The front desk staff was super helpful and friendly which was appreciated, although they try to get you to go to their restaurant and bar instead of going out. While the bar is nice, roof top w/ pool, it's reallly expensive and the views 'OK' to my standards. Pool is also very tiny.

Location is pretty central to getting to main attractions and you're in between two major subways, but the walk to/from can be brutal, especially if you have luggage. You're also on the edge of 'China town' which tends to give off many unpleasant smells by the end of the day.

It is not breathtaking at the Fresh Hotel but still a good choice. The perception might be better in a more established neighborhood. The staff is friendly and speaks several languages. The lobby and rooms are clean, although all is a bit narrow. The roof-top-terrace is very nice and stylish with cool beats in the background, and yes, there is also a good view to the Acropolis. Try the Greek salad!

Very nice hotel with comfortable and clean rooms. Very friendly and helpful staff. Location is very good, a few minutes walk to Monastiraki square and Metro station, although our Greek friends say that it is not the best area to stay. Breakfast is great.
Great view from the rooftop terrace. Drinks are not the cheapest however. Nice swimming pool (VERY cold, however, even in summer), but very clean. Towels are provided at the pool.
Would definitely stay here again

Well located for a nice walk to the major Athens attractions. Great rooftop view of the Accropolis and a nice place for an evening appertif. Staff is excellent, accommodating and very helpful with good directions. Rooms are small, but well layed out with a small balcony. Great shower.

Comfortable and clean rooms and a friendly staff (especially those at the reception and cleaning services). Breakfast with a wide choice. A worthwhile night view from the roof top to the Acropolis which should be experienced with a mojito. The only less positive thing is the hotel location as the surroundings are not very pleasant and give a certain sense of insecurity. Located out of Plaka altough not far by metro.

Room Tip: If possible avoid rooms turn to the street

Lovely hotel with great rooms and facilities. The rooftop bar and pool area is superb (if somewhat pricey) but with great views and great customer service you don't mind. Some of the food at breakfast was a bit dry but there was a good choice. All the staff were very friendly. Glad we upgraded to an Exec room. It was lovely and we had a small balcony with great views of the city. Wouldn't hesitate to stay in this hotel again.
