“We call this home!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

The Central Hotel is our home in Athens. Clean, updated rooms, tho on the tight side, are well-apportioned; attentive service, generous breakfast--- what are those ubiquitous wieners all about-- does ANYON eat them? And a jaw-dropping rooftop view of the Acropolis make this a welcome destination for weary travlers. Add it's fortuitous placement within walking distance of most sites of interest and Athens is a piece of cake. Shortcomings, right rooms (not unlike most 3 star urban hotels-- the European standard) and a narrow, one- way street if you arrive in a big bus, you have to walk in with all your luggage.

Thank you for your review on our hotel. Our internet speed usually works fine unless there was a very busy day and the speed was slower. We have a really good location which we propose you take advantage of the next time you stay with us.

Last week I stayed at the Central Hotel Athens. The rooms where tidy and clean (however the bathroom was a little small), the employees where nice and correct and the view from the roof terrace was breathtaking!

We stayed at the Central Hotel Athens and whilst the stay was comfortable, I felt more could be done with the accommodation.

Since the negative reviews of others, they appear to have removed the mouldy carpets and replaced them with floating floors in the rooms. The rugs weren't a feature in our room. The yellow sheets appeared to be white again, however the bedding lacked a top sheet which meant that if you were hot during the night, you could only sleep with no doona/comforter or half in half out.

The showers and toilet appear clean, however little privacy is given to the guest. I suggest maybe sending your partner out to get a coffee / drink if you need your privacy?

The restaurant upstairs only provides snack foods, however the waiters are very helpful - offering blankets and free nibbles when you order drinks. They are very happy to assist with your queries whilst staying here.

Overall the hotel is average, nothing too special, however fairly centrally located with views. It would be nice if they did a little something to be special and stand out from other hotels in the area...

The hotel is in an excellent location near Sintagma square (about 5 min by foot). It has a extremely small parking and small rooms. The bathroom was so small and the room wasn't clean. The bed was uncomfortable although it wasn't noisy. The stuff were ironic about our luggages saying that they were too much for one weekend (why do they care). The elevator didn't have enough room for two persons and their baggages (you have to go one by one).

This hotel was in a great location. All the common spaces were nicely done and the room, although small, was comfortable and and well kept. The roof top bar had a great view of the Acropolis and the breakfast in the morning was the best we have had in a long time. The staff was friendly, helpful and even kept our luggage when we were staying with them. We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a view if you can afford the higher price

Central Hotel offers a wonderful location in center Athens, where you want to be able to stroll away every day.

Now, the hotel is ok. Rooms are ok as well. Bathrooms do need an update and cleanliness could be improved. But the best value of the hotel is the amazing view from the terrace bar on the upper floor: the Acropolis. This view on its own definitely makes Central Hotel a great place to stay.
