“Other reviews very accurate”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

We read the reviews on tripadvisor before booking which almost all said nice hotel, dodgy neighborhood. This is very accurate.

The hotel was very modern with a good deal of amenities, it is clearly well maintained, is clean and is extraordinarily good value really for a hotel in Athens. It is not central but is very close to an underground stop and the underground is very easy to use.

On the negative side, the man on the front desk was constantly on the phone and it was difficult to get much help out of him, the bed was rock hard and the shower was average in terms of how it inevitably flooded the bathroom due to its poor design.

On a practical note I would recommend getting a taxi from the airport, it could be difficult to find and you don't want to be lugging your bags around what is a pretty average neighborhood.

Room Tip: All rooms are modern and well maintained and so shouldn't vary wildly.

Booked this purely through internet reviews.
Definitely agree with everything said - clean, friendly, English-speaking staff, welcoming and helpful. The hotel itself is well-lit and certainly stands out like a beacon in the neighbourhood.
The spa bath was just what was needed after sightseeing days! We had breakfast on just one day - continental style. Map provided by hotel was easy to follow. Room service for drinks at the end of the day reasonably priced. Don't expect views out of back rooms - neighbourhood terraces are perhaps not the most inviting aspect but as a base for sightseeing it's good value.
Only downside was the location - as a couple it was ok but near derelict shops in area were attracting wrong type of inhabitants and rubbish. Shortish walk to metro - watch out for gangs of pickpockets operating the' block access to train carriage then jostle' technique!

Room Tip: Perhaps ask for a room on upper floors - lift always worked!

Some expedia star rating business on the TA site next to the name of this hotel says that this is a 2 star hotel. That is simply wrong. This is a solid 3 star in terms of amenities and a five star in terms of Trip Advisor's ratings system.

Centrotel is mid-city, a little farther from the Plaka and Acropolis area than some others, and its not in a tourist district. If you have been to Athens you know what that means; it is a city in a state of decay in many ways. Still, this area isn't particularly different from many urban areas such as Mexico City and this area seemed safe enough. If security is a major issue just use a taxi to the front door.

That said, the value is fantastic. It stands out on its street as clean and well-lit. Inside it is decorated cleverly, the staff is friendly and conversant in several languages, and the lobby looks inviting for a lounge. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms nice, carpeting clean, no smells, etc. Nice balconies for every room and healthy plants in between each, and there are nice thick double sliding doors to cut out street noise (which wasn't too bad, but Athens housing is a lot of echoey concrete) Parking may be available, a plus. Small but cute breakfast room with modest food, not the highlight but ok, with a small outdoor patio in the back. The TV is small but for the price this hotel is an excellent value.

Only negative was the last night of our stay when we had guests on either side of our room and we noticed how much noise the water pipes and system make. Also, the rooms had no sound proofing so you could hear everything from other rooms. Otherwise, the hotel is lovely. Very clean with great rooms and lovely bathrooms. Breakfast basic so do not expect much. Location was great as near Larissa Station and Victoria station. Do not agree with fellow reviewers that say the area is not safe. We had no problem and never felt uncomfortable at all. Victoria Square is very near for something to eat and drink. Overall we had a great stay and would return.

We stayed at the hotel for four nights in may and found it to be great. It is very clean and the rooms are spacious. The location is great....close to the metro and trains. The staff was friendly and very helpful....helping us arrange a cab ride from the airport upon our arrival. I would definitely stay there again.

I recently stayed at the Centrotel on holiday to Greece. Our plan was to drive out to different locations from Athens so needed a place with easy access in the city and a comfortable car park. Centrotel surprised us with much more. The hotel is spanking new, with great service and two metro lines a stones throw away. The top Athens tourist attractions the Acropolis and Monestaraki, are just a couple of train stops away from the hotel. Would highly recommend Centrotel if you are looking to pay for value and want to get much more

Room Tip: If you are on a long holiday, make sure you get your laundry done here. Cheapest rates in town

Cheap, very clean and comfortable. Not the best neighborhood. If this was located a little bit more to the center , it was the perfect place. But the neighborhood is pretty shabby. We didn't feel unsafe though. Free parking and close to train and metro station and to archeological museum. Rooms are very good, spacious and good beds and bathrooms. Good for a city trip to Athens.
