The breakfast wasn't as good as the breakfast we had at Athens Center Square hotel. The decor and furniture is a bit dated and the shower curtain sticks to you when you shower. The bed was very nice with good linen. Location is next to the National Archaeological Museum. We did get very good tips & advice on nearby cinemas...

At reception a friendly George warmly welcomed us, gave a detailed itinerary & we were given hot chocolate before being shown to our room. Very spacious, clean and quiet room with very comfortable bed. Location is also excellent & quiet, next door to museum and polytechnic. A short walk to the busy old part of Athens.Very Occasional Street dwellers, same...

I stayed here for a few days on my visit to Greece. Despite the geographic location of this property - close to the Exarchea neighbourhood - this is a wonderful property. Easily accessible from the bus stop/metro stations, with good connectivity to visit-worthy places in Athens. Take a terrace view room, and one gets a magnificent panoramic view of Athens,...

Our trip to Athens was very short notice. We decided to have a weekend getaway only 6 days before. I didn't spend much time reviewing hotels, i just picked one in the centre and this seemed decent. Well, it exceeded expectations, it is more than decent. Good price, modern, comfortable rooms, large balconies for each room, perfect location, great staff....

Often the hotel is full of groups of tourists. Good location, good price. Dont bother to buy the breakfast, its not much to write home about. The best thing with the breakfast is the automatic orange juice machine. Try to get a room in the main building. Very friendly staff!

This hotel located in opposite Polytechnic University, a very unique part of Athens. But beside dont have the historic features in addition to the real life of students, and different places for students. This area is famous for a lot of graffiti and a different kind of culture. If you take your car, then you need to take care of...

Comfortable and clean rooms that are good sized (for Europe). Staff is exemplary! I arrived late on Jan day, suffering from a severe head cold and without cash. Because I was hungry and didn't want to go out, Vasilis (Front desk) offered to order delivery for me, and even paid for me as I didn't have cash and delivery services...

Staying in Exarchia

Neighbourhood Profile
Exarchia is in many ways Athens’ best-kept secret, discovered by relatively few international visitors. Located behind the main University and Polytechnic buildings, it is unsurprisingly home to many students, intellectuals and politicos. This is reflected in the area’s vibrant street art and graffiti, which seems to cover almost every inch of wall space. Some of the best Athenian tavernas are located here, as well as its most alternative bars and underground music venues. You'll find political bookshops and quirky stores here, yet it is also a neighborhood inhabited by families and older folk. On Saturdays, punks and grandmothers alike head for Kallidromiou Street, nestled below Strefi Hill, to pick up fresh produce at the traditional laiki agora (street market).
