We stayed in this hotel last week and found the staff to be very helpful and courteous. The breakfast was very good and the rooms were clean with good sound proofing. We had a lovely balcony with view and it was good to be a bit out of the centre and eat with the locals. The only downsides were lack...

I stayed two nights at this hotel in Athens. The hotel is pretty nice but it's not in the best area. It's close to the museum (hence the name) but its a bit of a walk to the metro station to get to the acropolis. There was a fairly cute pedestrian street with lots of restaurants a few blocks away....

To be positive first, the staff were great and friendly. The public areas were pleasant and very clean. Breakfast was better than some other hotels offer so this was good. Computers and printer freely available for use. On the negative side is that our room was very small, as was the basic shower. The breakfast room was chilly and quite...

At 10-15 minutes walk from the touristic area. It's not located in the finest streets of Athens but we had no sense of insecurity and the hotel is excellent!. Large and clean rooms. Correct breakfast. Very attentive staff.

Positives First. The hotel was clean and the front desk helpful. Welcomed us on our honeymoon with a bottle of champagne in the room (though I had no note so had to go down and clarify if it was a gift or if we would be charged). Behind the National Arch Museum, so conveniently located to bust stops and restaurants....

The hotel is conveniently located on the street adjacent to the National Archaeological Museum. The rooms were nice and the staff was very attentive. However please note that an extra bed in the triple sharing option is a sofa bed. They have a free 24 hr orange juice service which was an added bonus after a long day of walking....

Large family room and bathroom. Couldn't get the air con to work so I don't know who comfortable it would be in the heat of the summer. Staff "George" at the front desk was very helpful. Clean and tidy. Breakfast nothing to write home about. Perfect location for the museum and also the "Hop On/Hop Off" buses that are around....

Quite disappointed with the hotel. Firstly I was shocked at how ghetto the area was where myself and my partner did not feel safe. And judging by the pictures on the site would never think the area was so run down. Our door kept jamming making it difficult to open and in the likelihood of a fire that would not...

Hotel was easy to get to once we arrived at the airport. I travelled with my mum who is over 60 and the hotel is in a great location central to all the sights in Athens. We stayed for 6 nights and also had B-fast included which was excellent as well as a lot of choice. Hotel staff were helpful...

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).
