    Fabulous

    Nice hotel, very good located in the city center, near the main historical monuments and shopping streets

    The street in which the hotel is situated, feels a bit unsafe, due to the many houses in disrepair, but a 24hour reception with cameras ensures the guests all safety

    Fabulous

    Breakfast was excellent varied choice and staff helpful. Ensured rooms were cleaned daily and did liase with you if you were late getting out of your room.

    The room size was poor did not reflect the website description.The bathroom was unfinished tiles were missing and you could see the light from the bathroom above. The bath was small and there was no place to hang the shower attachment which did cause difficulty when trying to shower.It describes the room as family/accommodate three adults it could do with being large as we had a teenage daughter with us.Definitely not worth 140 euros per night

    Fabulous

    The convenience of it's location - an easy walk to just about any site of interest. Also the friendliness of all the staff - very pleasant and accommodating. We requested quiet rooms and were given just that, never heard our neighbors or the noise of the street.

    The only thing I didn't like was the hardness of the beds, but that is totally personal and others might prefer that.

    Superb

    Best location for shopping and sightseing. Very quiet street in the hard of Athens.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The staff were very helpful and the hotel has a personal feel. The location is also ideal for those who want to explore Athens on foot as there are plenty of tavernas, bars and shops for tourists nearby. The Acropolis, the central market, Parliament, some of the museums, Lycabettus Hill and central metro stations are also within walking distance.

    I think the lift was a little small and the bathroom in the triple room we stayed in could have been improved if there was a shower curtain.

    Good

    The hotel looks nice... The breakfast was great but... There was wireless... There was a computer in the lobby. They stored our luggage after checkout in a locked closet.

    ...but it had some quirks. For one, we could hear other people in their bathrooms from our bathroom. Also, I asked for a double room for 4 adults and specifically requested no cots. We got one double bed, one single and a cot! A short cot! A short uncomfortable cot! Plus, the part of the room with the air conditioner was cold and the other part was hot. The breakfast room is narrow and quickly felt crowded. Wireless internet was only available in the lobby. So, if you're just staying in a regular room, it is probably great but I don't recommend it for a group of 4

    Fabulous

    Hotel was conveniently located with easy access to historical, cultural, public transportation, and shopping areas. The staff, with one exception, were most accommodating and helpful. Breakfast buffet was excellent. The rooms were clean and bright, and the beds comfortable.Despite other comments posted, we found the bathroom facilities to be clean and convenient, although a bit small. This, however, caused no inconvience. Overall, the hotel is a great value for the cost.

    The only negative was the attitude of one individual at the desk who was curt and sometimes rude. In contrast, the lady was friendly, cheerful, and always ready to help. One drawback was that Wifi is available only in the hotel lobby, but this was not a significant problem considering the price of the accommodations.

    The location is excellent, very central but quite, at least our room not on the street side. The room is convenient and clean, the same about a bathroom.

    Exceptional

    The staff were friendly and honest. One morning I left my bag and forgot to take it with me after my breakfast. It was only when I got to my room I realised I had left my bag at the restaurant. When I got to the restaurant, the staff actually kept it for me. I had my passports and 1,000 Eu inside. In my countrry it would have gone missing. The staff too were very friendly.

    A bit of heating at night would have helped.

    Very good

    The locality and the fair rate

    The mattresses were not of a standard suitable for a nice rest at night. Further more I have got no complains.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The hotel staff very good and helpful to describe every thing which you want to know about Greece. Hotel location is very excellent just 5 minutes walk to Syntagma Square and Ermou street. Great dining restarants are available nearby.

    Wi-Fi available only in hotel lobby. No shower curtain in shower area which make all floor wet with water.

    Close to most things in Athens

    Very slow Internet and the bath room had a very small bath come shower with no shower curtain, which always covered the floor in water.

    Exceptional

    We chose to stay at Hotel Achilleas because of the great experience we had staying here two years ago. We were not disappointed. The staff, the room (for a family of four), and the price (which included breakfast) were all great. The hotel is located next to the parliament and it is only a short walk to the Acropolis and Plaka. We would stay here again and I strongly recommend it to anyone.

    There was nothing we did not like.
