“Super boutique hotel in the centre of the city”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We were delighted to start our journey in such a welcoming and modern hotel. Rooms are small but chic and the breakfasts are the best I have ever had -- complete with fresh squeezed orange juice and every manner of food group, even home-made marmalade and jam. The front desk staff couldn't be more helpful, recommending great restaurants and arranging taxis. Close to shops and restaurants and right around the corner from the hop-on hop-off tour bus. The coup-de-grace is the roof top with views of the acropolis. There is a lovely little pool and lounge area as well as a restaurant/bar. Overall, loved it!

I had a wonderful experience here. For me, fast internet, clean rooms, decent breakfast and gym were some of the most important things I was looking for.

NOT SO GOOD: It is definitely not the best location, you can tell it is a rundown area; however, it is close to two metro stops. In our room the internet was not the most reliable.

GREAT: They deserve a 5 star review: Breakfast starts at 6:30; however, we had to leave early in order to catch our train. At the check out, they brought us in a breakfast box for the road. It was a life saver.
The staff is great, the hotel is modern, quite, simple, but very pleasant. At the roof top, there is this restaurant with a gorgeous view of the Acropolis, it is totally breathtaking, for a moment I thought I was in a resort hotel outside the city. Rooms are tiny, but very clean, nicely decorated. Gym is decent, it works all day long, there is no additional fee to use it. There also a kind of art gallery inside the hotel.

Definitely a 5 star review!

We spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel in Athens. We had a suite on the 7th floor.
The room was specious and very modernly and smartly styled. The beds were comfortable and breakfast was wonderfull. There was no special view from our balcony but there is a rather nice view to the Acropolis from the roof, where there is also a nice small pool and a good restaurant and bar. We had our dinner there on our last night in Athens and it was really tasty.
Previous visitors complained about the surroundings. Indeed the main road leading to the hotel is not the prettiest but we didn't feel threatened in any way getting there after dark and it is really a very short walk from the center.

Well, after a nice holiday through the Greek islands, we finally ended up for one night only back in Athens before picking up our flight home.

Fresh Hotel was right in the middle of all the action, just North of Monastiraki Station and Square where the flea market is, 2 minutes away from the meat/fish market (a must see) and the top end of the Plaka. The Hotel was bight and a little boisterous due to a local art show happening, which added to the unique nature of this hotel, the decor was very modern and the rooms were good, clean and cozy, which is typical of this type of hotel. What was really nice was the rooftop bar and pool, it was fantastic. We didn't have a chance to spend enough time there, but the service was very good, staff was friendly and the complimentary breakfast was in a large room with quite an array of food to choose from. We were very pleased with the stay...oh, and there is a fantastic local restaurant just down the following street that serves only two types of grilled meat on fries and salads... I believe it was called Telis. Worth the time and money spent if you are a walker like me!!!

Room Tip: See if you can get a room that can accommodate triple occupancy (if there are 2 of you), you will en...

I stayed in this hotel for one night and I was very very happy with it. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The hotel is modern, very clean and has a cool decoration. Room may be a bit small for some people but it was perfect for me. Free wifi, amazing breakfast, Korres products in the bathroom, pool and, the best: a great terrace with a cool bar overlooking the Acropolis. You must sit there for an evening drink and enjoy the view.

Within walking distance of Plaka and the Acropolis. Very close to Monastiriki Square.
And great price. Also, having booked directly on their website the gave me 10% discount.

Perfect hotel for a stay in Athens.I will definitely recommend it and I will be back.

Really nice clean and trendy hotel. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful, checkin very painless.

We had one of the smaller rooms on the second floor, the room was really clean,
comfortable and quiet and had a little balcony overlooking the street. The rainfall shower was great although it did soak the entire shower room.

Breakfast was really good with a huge selection to suit all tastes although would have liked to be able to have decaf coffee.

Rooftop bar was stunning, really lovely views all around, comfortable sofas to lounge on both outdoors and inside. The pool is just beside the bar and is quite small but still big enough for a quick dip to cool down after a hot day in Athens and there were enough sun loungers and comfy seating around to relax on.

We ventured out to eat and found a really nice resturant to eat at about 5 minutes walk away called Athinaikon, well worth a visit!

All the sights were within easy walking distance, we managed to catch the changing of the guard outside the parliment at mid day, worth checking out!

The area around the hotel is in is not the best but we felt safe walking in the area at night as long as we stick to the well lit main roads.

Would definitely recommend a visit!

The hotel is modern light and clean. The staff ate very polite and helpful and the food very good! It's in a great location which is not too far from central Athens. The area it's in looks drab although seamingly safe as its a busy market area. A great hotel
To stay in. The roof top bar, restaurant and pool area are superb
