“Lovely service, clean room, kind of far from sights”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

This hotel is excellent for the price. The service, particularly the cleaning, was excellent. It is a 30 minute walk to the sights, but the trams are close and accessible. They were very helpful in ensuring that we had a timely taxi for a very early flight.

Superb value for such quality rooms and lovely friendly service. Everything was clean and had a couple of breakfasts which were great.
Location is very close to the underground and you are the city centre in no time. It is a bit run down in the immediate area, but it my thirteen year old son and I never felt uncomfortable walking to and from the hotel.
Will definitely stay again when I next visit.

Due to a Lutthansa pilot's strike, our return flight from Athens (scheduled for April 2) was cancelled.

We needed another hotel to extend our stay, because our previous hotel was "full."

Checking out prices on Hotwire and TA, the rate of $37 Euros (2 persons, double occupancy) seemed Too Good To Be True, so we personally visited the property and made a room inspection.

Despite being touted as a 2-star hotel, the rooms were quite luxurious and were much larger than the highly-rated 4-star hotel that we had been staying for over a week.

The helpful desk clerk pointed out that the $37 online rate was "no breakfast included," so we chose the $50 Euros per night option that includes continental breakfast.

The lobby and the breakfast room seemed very nice and we would most definitely stay here if we returned to Athens a second time.

As it turned out, Lufthansa was able to get us out of Athens on time after all -- so we were able to cancel the rest of out tentative stay without being charged for the additional nights.

We would highly recommend this property to anyone who is adventurous enough to ride the Metro, as there are two stations within 8 blocks in either direction.

However, if you are someone who needs to be in the center of Acropolis and other attractions, you may want to consider another (higher priced) location.

This hotel is fantastic for the price. A short walk from the metro, we were able to get anywhere quickly. The room was clean and had a small fridge that allowed us to go to the local grocery for simple supplies. The one con, and this is probably just from an American perspective, there wasn't a blanket. Sheet and then bedspread. The extra "blanket" was just another bedspread. Odd, but not a deal killer. I'd definitely stay here again. There was also a really good, reasonably priced cafeteria-style restaurant just a half block away. Fantastic place!

We spent here 4 nights and just came back from the lovely Centrotel hotel.
Very nice, clean and quiet hotel in the center of Athens.

All compliments for housemaid who was taking care about room 202. Checking bed, pillows, bathroom, daily fresh towels... it was really nice! Thank you!

Hotel is very close to Victoria metro station, just one station away from Omonia square and you are in epicentre of Athens. If you are for the first time here like we were, just speak with the staff on the front desk, they will explane you everything you need and they will give you nice tips for visiting monuments and interesting areas here. All of them were nice but we would like to say special Thanks to Dina :)

We didn't eat in the hotel because we were mostly outside and running around (so we don't know nothing about food here), but don't worry - big supermarket is little bit down the street, 2-3 small shops, nice bakery and gyros next door from hotel down the street and Victoria Square can offer you few nice cafeterias and bistros.

We were just very sorry because 4 days were not enough for such a lovely place like Athens is but we will come back.

Thank you Centrotel, thank you Athens!!!

Centrotel is a nice modern hotel with nice facilities and friendly and helpful staff.

My room was large and spotless with a spacious bathroom and all basic amenities you can expect from a three stars hotels. Complimentary (slowish) wi-fi, safe, room service, a small balcony overlooking the quiet street.

Simple breakfast is served in a breakfast room or in the small courtyard and hotel has a spacious lounge. Staff is friendly and very helpful even if their english is far from perfect.

Though the area looks grimy and run down (like large parts of modern Athens) metro station Victoria is less than 10 minutes away and the main tourist attractions are within easy reach

We stayed at this hotel for 7 nights (this is our last night now) and have only great things to say about the hotel. Before we arrived, we were a little apprehensive about the location (well my boyfriend was) given some of the other comments but it is perfectly located for accessing Athens and we felt completely safe day and night, together and on our own, around the vicinity of the hotel including the route to the metro. Please don't let other people's comments put you off- it's a residential area like you will find in most cities.

It is located about 5 mins walk from Victoria metro and there is a square with lots of bars and cafes on the way. We also walked into the centre on a few days- this took no more than. 30mins max walking slowly.

The hotel is exceptionally clean and well maintained (rooms cleaned daily with fresh towels). The room was a great size and the jacuzzi bath and high pressured shower were both very welcome after a day walking around Athens. Nice balcony- we were on the 7th floor overlooking the street- with closing gass doors and shutters that kept out the light (and any noise).

The staff were all very friendly and helpful (even going out to buy some scales for weighing our luggage when we enquired as to whether they had any). We wouldn't hesitate recommending this hotel to other people and would definitely stay here again on our return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor.
