“Great spot!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Nothing blows you away when you first walk in, but this place really succeeds on all levels. Great location, great breakfast buffet, superb rooftop view of the acropolis. The room is small, as is the bathroom, but everything is very clean and comfortable. Highly recommended!

I stayed in a room solo and it was just an oasis to have such a nice room to myself after nearly 3 weeks of being on the road in Turkey. I remember sleeping so well, there is no noise (that could hear) from my room (I was on the 2nd floor, I think 214 if I remember correctly). My first night I was so tied, I just stayed in and enjoyed the hotel (sadly, I only had energy to do just that my first night, but the room and balcony was so nice, I didn't mind.) Bathroom and amenities were good, room has a safebox, balcony has cute view of narrow street, and walking to the restaurants in Plaka is very close.

Also, you are about 8 minutes from the Syntagma Train station. Breakfast in the morning is pretty good, reception is very responsive, free wifi in rooms, and maybe it was just being alone in the room, but I had a lot of space to throw/unpack my stuff everywhere (it was great until I had to re-pack and leave).

Anyway, I had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. If I return to Athens, I am definitely going to try to book a room here again.

As everyone says, the location is very good albeit the street is quite narrow and not that easy to wheel luggage along. Great roof top bar with great views and a nice spa/jacuzzi to relax in. Only a short walk from the main square where you can catch the hop on hop off bases and Los only a short walk to the Plaka shopping/restaurant area. Great value for money.

Thank you very much for your review on Central Athens Hotel. Our location is very convenient for someone who wants to visit Athens attractions on foot. And after a nice walking tour we always recommend to visit the Jacuzzi next to Thea Terrace Bar to relax and admire the view with a nice glass of Greek wine. Come back soon to enjoy it, again since as and you say Central Athens is a great value for money hotel!

The rooms are rather small, but other than that the place had a fabulous roof top terrace overlooking the Parthenon, a nice breakfast buffet that had something for all taste buds and was very centrally located. And the price could not be beat.

Yes, the hotel is located in a run down area with most shops shuttered and closed and walls plastered with eyesore graffiti but it is a residential area and it is safe. The hotel, which abuts on to a large school, is exceptionally good value - clean, pleasant, with excellent breakfasts and a wide choice of food options, friendly, helpful staff, and a great view of the Acropolis from the roof terrace bar. It looked better than the three star hotel at which my nephew was staying nearby. Best of all is the location. It's close to all of the main historical sites and within walking distance of most of the museums. It is also seems to be the closest hotel to the magical traditional taverners tumbling down the slopes of the Acropolis five minutes walk from the hotel - superb food with very generous servings, wonderful service and inexpensive.

Thank you very much for your review on our hotel and staff. Central Athens is very centrally located, in the heart of Athens, the Plaka area, which is the ancient part of the city with all tourist attractions in a walking distance. Now days it has become the spot of the city nightlife with a lot of trendy restaurants, traditional tavernas and nice wine bars. We are happy that you had a nice stay with us and we hope that you will be back soon. The great view to the Acropolis from Thea Terrace bar will be there for you.
