“Awesome location, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

This is a wonderful little hotel in an awesome location for touring central Athens. Yes, you pay a premium for this type of access, but it allowed us to make the most of our time in the city without spending an excessive amount of time on the metro. We never set foot in a taxi either.

Since we were traveling with our son and his wife, we had reserved the Acropolis suite. The rooms were spacious, with a sleeper sofa in the living room, and an additional sleeper cot brought in. There is a lavish breakfast buffet that runs until 1130, which is very helpful as you accommodate to ‘Athens time’. The view of the acropolis was great, minus a few antennas in the way (but aren’t the daily cranes just as distracting?).

The neighborhood was certainly interesting and I would take this for what is was, a daily flea market that swells on the weekend, strolling onlookers, and the most graffiti I’ve seen in any city. With that being said, the location beat out of all of these distractions, especially since you could walk to the pedestrian areas in only a few minutes. Once you were tucked in your room, the solid double-paned windows kept out ALL of the street noise, something that is definitely appreciated, but very hard to find in a large city!

It was especially nice to be close to some of the other little areas off the beaten path of the Plaka, we would definitely prefer this location if staying in central Athens again. We have stayed in other top trip advisor hotels in the Plaka, but this hotel beat them all. We will return.

A beautiful and modern gem of a hotel in center of Athens with friendly staff who are very helpful and very pleasant to deal with.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at O&B hotel.
The area around the hotel is in total contrast to the hotel, and somewhat disappointing.
Over all we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to our friends or stay here in the future.
Thank you.

We stayed for 2 nights at O&B and it was an unforgettable experience: great Greek cuisine, large room with a balcony (choose number 22, the best view to Acropolis) and excellent service.
And, yes, even when you take a shower you see the Parthenon!!! All building is accessible and also is very near Monastiraki metro station. When dining, share the dishes: is enough for two! Or ask for a nice greek salad. Our waitress explained each dish in detail and was very kind. She is from Poland but knows everything about the delicious Greek cuisine!

Room Tip: Room 22 has a balcony and a great view to the Parthenon. Even in the shower you see it!

The service at O&B is fantastic. After dragging our bags from the metro to the hotel on a very hot day, we were welcomed with a friendly smile and someone to swoop our bags away. Next, we were served a cold glass of water -- without asking -- and that attention to detail continued throughout our stay. After checking into our rooms, they provided a lovely snack of amazing feta, olives and a shot of local wares to keep us going after our red-eye flight.

After a day of walking around, we opted for easy dining and room service, and to our surprise, they wheeled out the table to our private deck overlooking the Acropolis. Just lovely.

Next, when we called for an early morning wake-up call and a taxi for an early departure, the clerk on staff asked if we would like a breakfast box made for us since we would be leaving before breakfast hours. Amazing! Highly recommend this hotel.

O&B boutique hotel was fantastic. The room had an amazing view. The location was perfect.
But best of all was the service. The restaurant recommendations were on-point whether it was trendy bars, a low key dinner or gastronomical delights. The welcome was so generous with drinks and nibbles.
We had read the reviews about the are being a bit dodgy at night, but we didn't find this the case. It was busy and well lit.
We will stay again with O&B!

Extraordinary greeting- they swooped our luggage from the sidewalk, offered us cold water, and gave a quick overview of the area, all before we checked in. They also surprised us with champagne and treats in celebration of our honeymoon. The room was great, it was all we could ask for after 2 weeks of rustic island living. Great breakfast and incredibly helpful staff round out this happy couples' review to a 5!

Our first impression of Greece was when we checked into the O & B Hotel on our honeymoon. Arriving later than expected, Maria greeted us with a smile and took us to our room, which had been upgraded to their finest suite in honor of our honeymoon! They provide a welcome taste of Greek's great food and drink as part of their welcome. The staff was very informative about what was important to see in Athens, how to avoid the tourist traps and find the best part of the city. When we came back through Athens on our way home, they once again upgraded our room and were ready with a smile. The hotel is right on the main Metro lines so we had no trouble getting to and from the airport or anywhere else in the city.
