“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2012

Has the price of a cheap hostel and the confort of a hotel, the service is great the included breakfast its really good and the food in the comon areas is cheap and good, the personal its really nice and helpful. Its really near to the center and the metro station is really close, the tours leave from the same street. My experience was great the only thing is that the wifi doesnt work in the hight levels so u have to used in the comon areas that its a lilttle anoying for a internet adicted like me but its not so bad after you know it.

This is a neat and tidy hotel, with good staff. It has a great location, close to the metro and the intercity train stop. No complaints.

Very good value for money. Close to metro station which is very handy, nice looks, clean and room, nice rooftop and helpful staff, well at least one of them.
Bad thing is that Internet only works at the reception.
Also at check in, there was a young men working at the reception that was trying his best to accommodate us in an early check in, then a lady came and was rude to us and to her colleague and gave us different information an made us wait an extra hour, I know they were doing us a favor let us in the room earlier but there was no need for her bad attitude.
The rooftop bar has no menu and the lady barely speaks English to give you the options available , so we decided not to eat there and just get some drinks.

This hotel is located near the Metro station and in the city area, close to the main road. It's about 20 minutes away from Port. On the rooftop there is a restaurant that you can see the Acropolis from distant.

What is very outstanding about this hotel despite the air condition in the room wasn't functioning well, is the service of staffs. Both morning and night staff, they are very very professional, attentive and service beyond the expectation. I had to leave the hotel at 6, the reception suggested me to have a breakfast box after check out, he will let morning shift know to prepare nice breakfast box for me. When I said thank you very much, the young man said "Your welcome, it's not a big thing in a polite manner". I was feeling a big impression about this hotel is its reception staffs.

We stayed at the Crystal City Hotel in March for 3 nights and found it to be a very good 3 star hotel that was good value for money. We stayed on the 6th floor in room 605 which had a balcony with an excellent view of the Akropolis. The bedroom & en suite were clean and comfortable, there was a flat screen TV with some english speaking channels these were mainly american, but the BBC world news channel was available. The hotel staff were very helpful and could not do enough for us. The hotel lobby has a bar and premier league football could be watched in it on the greek sports chanels. The breakfast was buffet and there was a large selection of continental, cereal, bacon, egg, tea, coffee etc... The breakfast we had was good and was ok for what we wanted. Wi-Fi is available at the hotel, it is free access in the hotel lobby, but if you want to access the internet in the rooms you have to buy a Wi-Fi access card which works in a similar way to a phone card, the cost was €20 for 500 minutes access which could be used over a 28 day period. The internet conection was very good.

The hotel is located very close to the metro station and is only a 5 minute metro ride to the centre of Athens, Akropolis, Plaka, etc.... which we found very convenient.

Overall i would recommend this hotel to anyone who is considering stayin here, as you will get a good value for money clean and friendly hotel.

Room Tip: High floor with small balcony & Akropolis view - Room 605

We stayed one night in this hotel on the way back home from the Cyclades. It was a really good value, right at the doorstep of a Metro station. Buffet breakfast was also included. Will definitely come back

An average city hotel - typical corporate/commercial feel to the rooms and facilities. perfectly good for the price. Courteous staff and decent bar, but no restaurant.

Just round the corner from the Metro station; journey to Acropolis/Parthenon etc. about 25 minutes, changing once.

Not good was the traffic noise and the general run-down scruffy feel of the area. I wouldn't spend more than one night.
