    The location of the hotel is perfect for getting around Athens. Their breakfast is simple yet gets you going for the day. The balcony views are nice for its location, and the bed is comfortable.

    Some staff was very helpful, yet some made it a chore to get things done. The price is a little high for the room size and the obvious lack of renovation since the early 1980's.

    Clean, comfortable, not far from metro. Staff polite and helpful

    The hotel became our home during a prolonged stay due to the ash cloud volcano incident. We were very well looked after,the staff were without exception very caring and considerate. We were comfortable, breakfast was plentiful,served with a smile. Lovely place,lovely people

  • Single
    4.2

    Did not like: The rooms, furniture, cigarette smoke in the non smoking floors and rooms, attitude of staff at reception, breakfast was poor in quality, quantity and choice. The pillows were smelling in sweat . The room furniture is outdated. Photos on the website seem misleading once you visit the hotel.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Polite and helpful staff.

    Room interior, old floor covers, poor breakfast.

  • Single
    7.0

    Very friendly and helpful staff who spoke excellent English, good breakfast and clean rooms.

    Although the value for money was fair, I think this hotel can do with a renovation. The rooms were clean but the tiles were old which detract from the true cleanliness. Room smelt of smoke although I asked for a non-smoking room. Next to a strip club which isn’t necessarily the hotel’s fault but it made it somewhat awkward.

    The location is is very good. It's 5 minutes walk from the subway, just 2 stops away from the "city center", and the neighbourhood is quite nice. We had a car, so it was a plus having a parking spot, but it's very easy to reach it from the airport by subway. The breakfast was also very good. The room is normal size, and it seems clean. The hotel is a very good value for the money, or at least if would be, if...

    ...If we hadn't seen any bugs, but we met a big one in our bathroom. I don't know what kind of bug was it, but it was a big one (my girlfriend was creaming, but she always does if she sees something like this :) ). In our room we only met one (I killed it), but I saw another one on the stairs (it was killed already), so our bug was not the only one. I know this is not the Hilton (It's next to it :) ), but I didn't expect this from a BestWestern hotel.

    The location only

    The breakfast is very poor, the rooms look too old need renovation, I asked for a double room and was given twin room, reception charged my credit card before asking me if I want to pay cash or by the card. I can not give this hotel a 4 star

  • Single
    7.4

    Location is reasonably good: close to metro and bus that go to the airport. In walking distance to the Sintagma square (20 minutes). Orientation is easy since the hotel is located across the street of the giant building of Hilton hotel. Self service breakfast was all-right, besides continental it included also eggs, bacon and sausages. Bathroom seemed new (renovated).

    Air condition worked but was old-fashioned and noisy. Wi-fi only in the lobby. The instructions in the room tell that you could plug your computer in the "ADSL" plug in the room wall (there actually was such plug) to connect to the internet. But having no cable I did not test it.

  • Single
    4.2

    The unique positive aspect is that it is closed to the Metro station...

    The hotel is not so confortable, the breakfast very bad, in the room the plug fo rinternet on the wall was broken... I suggest to spend only one/two noghts at most...

  • Single
    7.0

    The reception staff was very friendly and helpful. The Internet connection is the lobby was very helpful and the large space there, too. It was central enough, easy to get to the airport and the city centre.

    The breakfast was rather poor and the staff serving (or rather not serving) have never learnt to smile or ask you if you wanted coffee. If you served yourself they looked at you as if you were committing a felony. And there were Ethernet sockets in the room, but they were not functioning, a pity. But the lobby Internet was a fair option. The information of getting to the hotel on their website is totally wrong.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Very central - only a few minutes by the Metro to the Inner city.Very helpful and service minded staff. Good room with a nice balcony.

    Brakfast was ok but nothing special. And the very same every morning.

  • Single
    5.4

    The location is good, since it is only at 2 stations from the center and offer a quiet and safe place where to stay.

    The breakfast is very very poor. The quality is similar to a youth hostel and the hotel condition is 70's, so not totally a the level of other european best western. If this hotel can improve their breakfast quality plus other internal maintanance, it can catch up to other hotels nearby.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Nice hotel. Friendly staff (not too many).

    Didn't like the fact that I was charged for using a PC station for accessing the Internet.! Breakfast at the minimum

  • Single
    6.2

    The quick response of the reception to any request

    The usage of the elevator (The buttons outside must be pressed very hard)
