The Pesonal-Service is very good! Close to the centre and attractions, with in walking distance to the Acropolis and main museums. 10 minutes walk from the metro station with a direct line to the airport. Room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant is excellent, the restaurant staff are also very kind. The price of the hotel is very reasonable for the comfort and services you get. Also prices in restaurant/cafe a bit high!

We stayed 3 nights in February. In the beginning we thought we were in the wrong area but we found out it's just around the corner of a big local market (meat, fish and herbs everywhere) and close to the shoppingstreets. Reception is very helpfull and friendly and recommended a good, local Greek restaurant. Breakfast is very good and enough variety. There is a modern gym and a sauna. Room was modern and comfortable, bathroom small but clean. The view (as nearly everywhere in Athens) was not inspiring (grey buildings) but the bar (and pool, closed in winter) offer a nice view of Athens and the Acropolis. Just a 10 minute walk to Plaka and then another 10 minutes to Acropolis. Loved our stay in this design hotel with friendly staff.

There in August 2011. First room had a weird smell, almost sewage like, so we requested to be moved and were given a different room. Like all places in Greece it seems, two twin beds that me and my bf pushed together. I thought the room was nice and I liked the style.

People friendly. Nice included breakfast. Location pretty good AS Long as you're ok with being in a somewhat sketchy area. Definitely some hookers on nearby corners at night and the neighborhood is kinda lower income. That said, you're just a few blocks from lots of happening stuff. And there's a great market across the street thatbou should. Isn't no matter where u stay.

Rooftop view is awesome. Pool is über small. Real estate upstairs is a bit tight but if you're strategic and care, I guess just get there early!

Just back from three nights at the Fresh Hotel and felt compelled to leave a review.
This is a really fantastic hotel and brilliant value for money, the staff cannot do enough to help you.
We arrived during what was clearly one of their quieter weekends and were upgraded to an executive room with a 'zen garden' - a small balcony area with bamboo and pebbles for those not with the zen. Was pleased to see Korres products in the bathroom and the entire suite was spotlessly clean. There was even a welcome bottle of water and raisins soaked in honey as a snack.
When we checked in we were given a voucher complimentary cocktail each at the rooftop bar so headed up there, it's a really beautiful bar with stunning views across the city. It was too cold to use the pool on the roof but it was a lovely area and would be a great sunning spot in the summer months.
As a former bartender in a cocktail bar I was pleasantly surprised with the bar staffs knowledge and abilty - the drinks were lovely and despite the steep price (11 euros for a cocktail) we returned another night for more.
The hotel gym was well equipted with modern cardio and decent weights etc. The steam room was out of order and the sauna was closed when we were the mega helpful concierge offered to turn it on for us and explained it was only turned off because the hotel was quiet.
Much has been made on Tripadvisor about the dodgy area the hotel in situated in but we had no problems at all. Yeah, the area isn't brilliant but it is less than a five minute walk to Monasarnaki Square which is a real tourist hub and only a few minutes more to Plaka and the ancient city of a Agora. Teh only downside I found to the location is that there is a pet shop right beside the hotel, with puppies in the window 24 hours a day. It angered me to see them in small glass cages with idiots tapping the glass constantly. We even saw an idiot tapping on the glass at the sleeping pups at 2 a.m.
Athens is a pretty expensive city, food prices are on a par with London or Edinburgh and drinks even more pricey. Expect to pay about 8 Euros for a spirit and around 5-6 Euros for a beer but like every city if you hunt you'll get cheaper prices off the beaten track.
We found the best nightlife was in Psyrri but Plaka and Thisio are well worth a look too. Also, just off Monastarnaki Square there are some lovely Greek cafes on the pavement. Great for lunch even in January thanks to the mild weather and patio heaters.
Don't hesitate to book the Fresh Hotel, great hotel, great staff and great value for money.

We previously stayed at a rather over priced, over rated hotel in a rather inconvenient part of Athens, and this hotel was recommended by a Greek friend who lives in Athens.
And what a great recommendation!

Initially the area looked a little dodgy, but it turned out to be surprisingly safe, convenient, (right near the Acropolis), and a haven above the busy hustle and bustle of the Athenian streets.

The roof Top pool deck was incredible! We spent a good few hours lying around the pool, drinking in cocktails and taking in the view of the Acropolis and Parthenon.

From arriving at the hotel, (and clumsily dropping my passport behind a glass partition at the counter, where the staff went out of their way to help me retrieve it), to the small but well appointed rooms, this hotel was definitely a win.

I would certainly recommend this to any traveler, and I know where we will be staying in Athens in August 2012!
