If you want a good value hotel in central Athens I would highly recommend this one. The rooms are reasonably well appointed ( though our shower was a little grubby ) if on the small side. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I would recommend arriving for breakfast early though, unless you don't mind waiting, as the dining area is too small for the number of guests that may want breakfast at the same time. I must admit we were lucky in the fact that we had a room with an Acropolis view but as the roof terrace bar has a fantastic view of the Acropolis we would not have been too upset if our room did not have the view. As for the comment about being able to see into the bathroom the windows are totally opaque and only a vague shadow can be perceived if a person stands up against the glass; not a problem.

Thank you for your review and your kind words on our staff, hotel and terrace bar. A very busy day might have caused some inconvenience during breakfast but we hope that next time you stay with us things will work smoothly.

We booked this hotel for its location which is in the Plaka area. The hotel is situated in a back street so is pretty quiet except we were given a room overlooking the airconditioning units so all we could hear them droning. The room was average size and nothing special , we did not like the glass window so you could see into the bathroom. Generally I would not book this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

We are very sorry that you had a bad experience in our hotel although most visitors find our location, staff and room size and minimal style design nice. We hope that if you change your opinion and come back to Central Hotel again you will have the opportunity of a relaxing and memorable stay. We will try our best.

We arrived without a reservation late at night after a frustrating experience with Athens roadways - grrrr. Front desk did a great job and we took room 604 which had great views to the Acropolis. Smallish and no balcony though. Bathroom too is small but nicely executed. Breakfast and wifi included and both worked fine. Hot tub on the roof deck was just warm enough to be refreshing, not cold, on a hot day. I agree with the other reviews that the ac just about gets the job done; you have to leave your key in a slot to make the ac work so the room is always sweltering when you get back (unless you get a second key). Rooftop garden cafe does a good job. Beds were pretty hard but that seems pretty standard throughout Greece.

Thank you for your review. We are happy to see that our people once again did their best to please a visitor and that you appreciated free Wi-Fi that we consider a necessity. We have tried to manage building restrictions in style and we are happy that you noticed while we are considering to change the way the a/c system functions. We hope to see you back soon.

The location is perfect. Midle of Plaka, close to Sidagma metro. We enjoyed the freindly service very much. Ther roof terrace is a wonderful place. View of athens and the acropolis is amazing. It is one of the best places in Plaka to sit and drink something. The room was small but clean and nicely desinged. It met our expectations, we enjoyed the stay very much.

Room Tip: Ask for view to the Acropolis.

Central Athens Hotel is situation in Plaka, a very nice nieighbourhood . The location is very good - close to main shopping area, restaurants and transport. The hotel is nicely decorated with a big and comfortable waiting area. the only flaw is the air-con in the room - it is not cool enough . Otherwise, i would strongly recommend this hotel .
