“Amazing location ”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

This was a perfect location to explore the Plaka. They were very accommodating and helpful. Hotel views and rooftop terrace are wonderful. Breakfast is simple but served very nicely. You are able to eat in the lobby or on the rooftop. You are paying for what you get so although accommodations are nice don't expect luxury. I would return in the future.

Stayed May 2014

I stayed here four nights at the beginning of my trip. My room had a balcony with a view of the Acropolis. Absolutely stunning. I chose a room with a bathroom across the hall to save money. It was inconvenient, but I expected that. Both my room and the bathroom were very clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And the location just can't be beat.

We stayed there for one night while visiting Athens. I had booked the "budget double" one which was actually a bit small but ok in general room. Everything was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Though, the location was the greatest thing about Phaedra Hotel. I could see the Acropolis from my window!

I can not describe how pleasant my stay in this hotel was.
We arrived in athens at midnight and to the hotel at 2am in the morning and got a room with a beautiful view to the Acropolis for a great price.
The location is perfect, really close to everything. Breakfast is cheap and delicious: bread, jam and butter, fruit, orange juice and tea or coffee. The rooms are clean and tidy with a great shower.
But the best part of the hotel is the staff. The receptionists are friendly and helpful. The owner of the hotel asked us to drink coffee with him one morning and told us fascinating facts about greek history. This was definitely the highlight of our trip to athens.
If you are visiting athens, this is definitely the best hotel to stay in.

We had a good 2 night stay at Hotel Phaedra. The room we had was very small. You could barely walk around the bed. We booked the last room available and the room had no balcony. My understanding was that the room without the balcony was the smallest in the hotel. The upside is that it is really well located and we were not there to hang around the room.

We spent one night in Athens between flights and chose this hotel because of its location and walking distance to the sites and the metro. It is a very simple, clean and decent place, the room we had was small with a long balcony, tiny bathroom, shower with curtain, a/c, TV, no safe, no hairdrier, no amenities except for a shampoo and a soap, probably it was one of the largest room they have because we were offered another very small room with outside bathroom at a much cheaper price. I must point out that because of its location, it gets quite noisy at night especially if you are an early sleeper and are used to sleep with an open window. From the roof top there is a back view of the Acropolis. Breakfast is not included and it costs 5 euros per person and you have to book it the night before, which we did because couldn't be bothered to go out and find a coffee shop, outside you probably could have got more for the price but our times were quite tight. All in all we got what we paid for, given the hotel prices in Athens during summer.

Room Tip: If you are not on a very tight budget, ask for a room with its own bathroom

You can't beat the location. It is in Plaka district, walking distance to shopping, sites and nightlife. Most of the rooms are decent size but some are on the small side so if you want more space just ask for a larger room. The hotel is simple but very clean and the staff is very accommodating. I have stayed at this hotel 3 times and plan to return on my next visit to Greece.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms are quite small and/or do not have a bathroom in suite. If you want a private in...
