I stayed there recently for 3 nighs with my husband and 5 year old son. First time in Greece.
I booked this hotel cos it seemed reasonably priced and very close to Akropolis which was always (ans still is) one of our "must-see" places in the world, and also my Greek friend`s mum recommended this place.
Staff here is very friendly. We chatted with them like with old friends and they were quite helpful, we asked them lots of questions about trams, metro etc.
Breakfast was good and generous: bread, butter, jam, fresh fruit, Greek yogurt, cheese, salami, tomatoes, coffee (very nice coffee!) and tea, juice (too sweet), cereals (very good), walnuts ... Only boiled eggs seemed to be boiled more like a day before than just an hour ago (judging from yolk colour), but we had only two eggs so I can`t say all of them every day were like this.
Room was a bit dark but clean. bathroom was tiny but shower worked good. wardrobe was small but there was lots of shelves so we were OK with it. Beds seemed comfortable for me & my son, but husband complained a bit about hard mattress. air condition worked well.
Staff changed towels and emptied bins every day.
Overall, first impression about room size and facilities in it was not so great, but it`s maybe because I work in luxury (and expensive) 5* apartments where I live so probably I automatically compared size and standard ;-) I have to remind those who are reading my review, this place is cheap so don`t expect 5* standard, but Art Gallery Hotel is a nice place. We were happy with this place and we enjoyed good breakfast (generous and cheap) on the balcony with a view on Akropolis.
I must say again, staff was very nice and friendly and helpful :) :)
We definitely will be back to Athens sometime in the future and very likely stay in Art Gallery Hotel again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a budget friendly family-run Hotel centrally located in the Acropolis area of Athens. We began our operation back in the early 80’s when a family member and architect converted our family residence into today’s Athenian home enjoyed since by thousands of our guests. Our Ηotel is well-situated in a safe neighborhood of the up-and-coming Koukaki district of Athens. We are conveniently located near the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, and the many interconnected archaeological sites of significance, most of which can be easily reached on foot or via our nearby metro and tram stations or by bus (all a few minutes away). Furthermore, the bustling pedestrian alley just down our street offers convenient access to a variety of enticing restaurants, tavernas, bars/pubs and cafes. ... more less
