I stayed at Hotel Astor for a few days in mid-June on my way to Crete. The location was spectacular--the front door was about 400 meters from the entrance to the Larissa metro station, which is only a couple of stops away from all of the main sites. There was also a Carrefour right next to the metro station, which made shopping easy. Some people in other review have described the neighborhood as 'dodgy', but I didn't feel at all unsafe. I probably wouldn't have walked down the quiet side streets alone at night, but I wouldn't do that in most foreign cities.

The rooms were very clean and decorated simply, but tastefully. There are all equipped with mini-refridgerators and split units (A/Cs), and there is a free DSL connection. The beds are standard for Europe--not particularly comfortable.

The people who worked at the front desk were very kind, but most of them (except for one woman) were not particularly helpful with questions about the city or the surrounding areas.

Good value, functional hotel in Athens. It's fairly no frills, but it's clean, it's cheap by Athens standards, and it couldn't be better located.We stayed for 3 nights,trying to pack in as much of Athens as we could before heading out to the islands, and it was perfect for that.

Hotel looks modern from inside and the rooms are very clean, but you will need ear plugs as you can hear the traffic from the road outside. I often use ear plugs, so don't think it is a problem.
The staff was really nice and helpfull.

The hotel is very good located. Only 100meters away from Larissa Station, and there is a big supermarket also only 100meters away.

THE BAD NEWS: Hotel is not in a good area, particularly at night...Rooms are small...Cigarette smoke permeated our room...Bathroom had an unusual small tub which had a dangerous undulating bottom; sit, do not stand when showering...towels were alittle threadbare. THE GOOD NEWS: Hotel is clean & simply modern...staff is very friendly & responsive to our emails...nice simple breakfast...no restaurant in the hotel, but we had a good "home-cooked" meal next door at Cafe Nana (try the lemon roasted chicken!)...Metro from the airport is the cheapest way to get there; travel light since you'll need to change from Blue to Red line & will probably get onto a very crowded Metro (we were warned to watch our wallet!), get off at Larisis Stn stop, & hotel is around the corner & about 1 block away...The price was right for Athens & a short one-night stay.

From the airport to the hotel:
Bus: X95
Go to the final stop (close by the Grand Hotel)
Pick a taxi, it is about 3 euros to the hotel's door.

The staff is VERY NICE! Everything super clean! GREAT! The breakfast seems very nice (I didn't eat it though, since I had brought my own food)
You can leave your luggage hidden inside if you want to check out and continue seeing the city.

Good location - 5 to 8 euros to Plaka/Acroples (please, be carefull with taxi drivers!)
