“Great Find In Plaka”
Reviewed July 14, 2010

We ended up staying at Hotel Kimon b/c I had unknowingly booked a hotel in the worst part of Athens (Omonia) and needed to find somewhere else to stay quick! I was very happy with our room and the price, but I especially loved the location (right in the middle of Plaka) and the incredible shower system in our room! I definitely recommend this hotel!

The location is good, the rooms are fine, staff is very nice, and the rooftop has a great view of acropolis. Def would recommend.

Reviewed August 30, 2009

We stayed three nights at the "budget priced" Hotel Kimon in Apollonos Street, Plaka and thought that at 70 Euro a night for the room we were being "ripped off", even though this was less than the published room rate.

The twin bedded room was clean enough but was tired and basic in the extreme. It did have a rather noisy air-conditioning unit and a phone but it was only possible to phone out from the reception desk.

To access the balcony we had to climb through a window???

My wife needed to hang up some dresses and no wardrobe of sufficient length was provided.

The bathroom indicative of many of the bathrooms we encountered in hotels and rooms in which we stayed costing around half this price had a clogged shower box (not attended to while we were there despite us reporting this). In the tiny shower it was impossible to avoid water being splashed all over the floor through the shower curtain. The design of the bathroom was such that one had to circumvent the hand basin somehow in order to use the toilet. The toilet seat would not stay up of its own accord - I needed to prop this up with my knee when standing to use it.

Fresh bed linen although clean was not sparkling white but rather "greyish" in appearance.

We were tempted to change hotels as we were subsequently to find far superior places available for just fractionally more, but the thought of having to yet again move all of our luggage dissuaded us and we stuck it out for the 3 nights we had booked.

There were some positives though and these should be mentioned:

The staff were very friendly and helpful .. rushing to take our luggage up the stairs on our arrival and offering helpful advice re good eating places etc

The location was right in the heart of Plaka, so right where all the action was

There was a small refrigerator in the room.

But there is no way I would return. Just a few days later we were to find ourselves in a hotel on Hong Kong island enveloped in sheer luxury and pampered from head to foot for a mere 10 Euros more. I have absolutely no idea how the authorities who set the price levels for accommodation of this standard can justify these ridiculous charges.
