“Great location and friendly staff”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

As a family with three children we have stayed at the Delice several times coming from Australia.
Located in a residential area with lots of cafe's and resaurants which open in the evening. Felt very safe walking to and from Kolonaki district where we could wander in for a meal at one of our favourite restaurants. The staff are so helful and friendly when ever we required help especially during a strike they found us alternative methods of transport. Large rooms well airconditioned with balcony and a clean part of athens. Its not the Grand Hyatt but for value and space its great

In the presence of the Holiday Suites, about half a kilometer down the road, it is astonishing that Delice is still in business.

We stayed just one night in this hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and silent, the staff was very kind and helpful. I guess it's a perfect hotel for visiting the city, since it is not far from the main attractive sites of Athens. It is just 200 mt far from the metro station "Evangelismos" where there are also a lot of bus stops. The neighborhood is safe and pleasant, something quite important if you want to go to Athens in this period.

Although it is an older hotel, it is clean and has all the basic amenities. The staff is superb and the buffet breakfasts with fresh squeezed o.j. are terrific. It is located in a safe and upscale neighborhood three blocks from the Evangelismos Metro station. ( We took the Metro from the airport to the Evangelismos and walked the three blocks to the hotel.) Athens is expensive, and this hotel is a true bargain for anyone on a budget. My wife and I would go back tomorrow.

We spent a week at Delice in September 2011. Delice is a hotel apartment. The pictures on the website are slightly inaccurate in that they show a large white post-modern building which is actually the Hilton, opposite Delice. In reality, the exterior of Delice is more homely. The interior is in a sort of 1970s style. It's very spacious. We were in a double bedroom suite, with a separate TV room (which also had a single bed in it) and open-plan kitchen, a bathroom and a little balcony.

Everything was very clean. One of the best things about our stay was that there were daily and thorough maid services included in the price. I've stayed in some hotels where the maid will *forget* to change the linen or won't do the vacuuming properly. Here they even washed our dirty dishes.

The other great thing was the location. It is very central and near the chic Kolonaki district (15 mins). The tube station is also within walking distance (5-10mins) (beware - plenty of tube strikes because of the austerity measures so DO NOT buy a weekly ticket!). It takes a day or two to get to know your area and find the nearest supermarket ( there is the "A&B" which is pretty big and about 10 mins walk from the hotel) and the nearest restaurants. There is one around the corner which does Cretan food (take a right as you exit Delice and turn the corner).

In addition, the aircon was fantastic. There is an aircon in the bedroom and also one in the TV room both are managed with an electric remote.

Finally, the reception staff were very accomodating, whenever we needed to use the internet, or e.g if we required an iron/ ironing board or had any other query/ request they would be very helpful.

Drawbacks - no electric kettle or toaster; the shower head is placed very low - about hip level which means you have to squat under it, or use one hand to scrub and one to hold the shower head up (there is a tub for those who like baths!)....

I am actually puzzled by the low rating for this hotel as it is a great bargain given its fantastic location.

Location: Located 5 minutes behind the Hilton, this little 3-star budget hotel in Kolonaki district is perfect for budget travelers. There is direct access to the hotel from the airport bus X95 (Hilton Stop costing EUR5 ) or by the metro (Blue line, Evangelissmo stop, costing EUR 7). The Evangelissmo Metro Station is about 7 minutes walk away. It didn't bother us that we are always about 1 or 2 metro stops away from the main tourist attraction as it is so easy to go anywhere by the metro. Any inconvenience with travelling is compensated by the fact that the hotel is a district where I can feel safe walking around without the constant need to clutch my handbag to my chest (an act I felt compelled to do walking around Omonia and other less desirable districts in town). There is a cafe right below and a host of eateries within 1 minutes walk, and a news stand right in front of the hotel which sells water and snacks but there is no grocery store or convenient store close by.

Facilites: Ok - this is a budget hotel, so don't expect any swimming pool or roof top restaurants. There is no porter to carry your bags to/from the door. It is true that the general decor of the hotel, the furnitures and fittings do feel like they have been around since the 1970s, but everything felt very clean and well kept. We stayed here before and after our trip to the islands. Our first room had a small balcony facing the courtyard. Our 2nd room (with a kitchenette and living room and spare bedroom) had a huge balcony facing the courtyard. The hotel has a very tiny elevator so you do not have to carry your own luggage up the stairs, but the elevator is very tiny and if you are not of petite size like me, there may be difficulty fitting two people with luggage in it. Breakfast is typical European affair with bread, Greek yoghurt and some ham and cheese. The freshly squeezed orange juice is probably the highlight of the day. There is free wifi access in the room, but only limited to one account access per room.

Service: The staff is always very friendly and are very quick to recommend restaurants or places to visit. (Although I must say that I was more than a little disappointed the staff had not mentioned to us there was a general public transport strike on the day we checked out and due to fly to the airport! Fortunately we got this information from the kind porter at Hilton.)

We stayed at Delice before and after our tour in June 2011. I did a lot of research before booking the hotel. The reasons I chose Delice were: 1. Metro and bus connection to/from airport. 2. Hotel is located right behind Hilton Athens. It is convenient for tour pick up and in a nice neighborhood. 3. 4 star rating 4. very reasonable rate through Booking.com.

Here is how it turned out: 1. Metro/bus we tried both and determined Metro is the better way. One way single ticket is 8 euro. group of two one way is 14 euro. Bus is 5 euro one way per person. Metro is much faster. We were warned about pickpocket in Metro but we did not run into any problems. Get off at Evangelismos and take Sophias/Hospital exit and head toward HIlton. It is a 5-7 minutes walk to the hotel.
2. The neighborhood is nice. There is a very nice restuarant Alatsi around the corner. There is also a Pita Pan to get Gyros across the street. 3. The hotel is not 4 star. The room is clean and has telephone, TV, tea kettle and a frig. However, the paint color, the furniture and the worn out phone key pad made the room very dated. We could hear people talking in the hall way till late at night. 4. The rate is very reasonable compared to other Athens hotel. We had to pay 5 euro for 5 hours Wi-Fi connection. Fortunately the time is accumulative so we used the balance when we returned 4 days later.

I gave the hotel very good rating based on the value and location. You will be disappointed if you are expecting a 4-star hotel.
