“Small but very friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

The room was small but more than adequate,with a balcony.Bathroom is a bit basic,shower was not ideal but did the job.The tiles were cracked as was the wash basin.TV was stuck on the same channel.The room was clean just a bit tired and dated,as was the hotel in general.
The staff were very helpful and friendly.
The room cost 30 Euros for one night with no breakfast offered or mentioned,i wasn't even aware they served breakfast!

Very cheap, close to metro station, staff was very friendly and helped us a lot by suggesting places to visit and how to get there. Rooms were cleaned and towels changed daily, breakfast was included although it was very basic. And most importantly, free wifi in the rooms!

However, the bathroom was very small, you could shower while sitting on the toilet! We were advised by the staff not to walk around the hotel at night because the area wasn't safe but we didn't have any bad experiences.

First day in Athens on our 3 week trip around Greece & Turkey. The hotel was easy to find (just steps to the metro) which was a big plus. The area of the hotel is dirty and very busy but it had it's own little charm to it. Super cheap when compared to other places, but you get what you pay for. Could be a little cleaner saw some bugs scurrying around the bathroom floor, but old building in a big city, I can look past that. If you're not planning on staying a long amount of time in the hotel while in Athens, this is a good choice.

When I travel to a city like Athens, where I know I won't be spending hardly any time in the hotel, I opt for a budget hotel thats clean and near public transportation. That is exactly what I got with Hotel Nafsika. The room was so small. We had a triple room and it was still so small. It was very clean though, which was nice. The shower was also so small. Thank God for the drain on the floor in the bathroom, theres no way you can keep the water in the shower. The AC worked ok. The staff was VERY nice and helpful and all spoke English well. The breakfast was across the street from the hotel and was decent. The metro was a short walk away and was so convenient to use to get to all the sites we wanted to see. For the price we paid and the intnent of 3 days in Athens, it was perfect and inexpensive.

After a long haul flight, the location was literally 50m from the metro station and easy to find. The neighbourhood is easy walking distance to explore the city and all the popular sites or jump on a metro train to go further afield. The man at reception was exceptionally helpful, speaking very good English and pointing out on a map all the must sees in Athens as well as recommending a fabulous cheap local eatery (beautifully set in a little neighbourhood square with a church). Good basic clean rooms with aircon. The breakfast in the cafe across the road was plentiful and fresh (typical European fare). Wifi worked no dramas.

Although it's located in a not so friendly area in Athens, the room was big, very confortable and a/c worked very well. The breakfast was good, not so big but correct, with cheese, ham, corn flakes, bread.. and greek yogurt!
The man at the reception, who speaks italian, was so kind and friendly and he's always ready to help you.
The location is between two subway stations but you can go by foot to the centre, it's like 20-25 min.
So if you want a correct hotel with all the facilities but without luxuries, that's a good option!
