I found this hotel clean and quiet with a very helpful staff. It is walking distance to most of the attractions. It is close to public transit and cabs are easily available. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

From moment we walked off of the elevator, I knew that it was bad!! The carpet reeked a dirty musty smell. Once in our room, we observed stains on the carpet throughout the room. The linen on the bed was dingy and worn, the mattress on the bed was more like a cot. The bathroom was considered dirty as there... More

Very central hotel with all sights close by. A bit worn down but everything works fine. Nice knowledgeable staff with ok english skills. Breakfast is good. Only downside is the very noisy road just outside the door - you have to choose either open windows and noise or closed windows and very hot

Rooms very dirty! Dirty spots all over the carpet. Bathroom would also need better cleaning. There is a kettle in the room but not tea or coffee, just kettle and two glasses. Breakfast ok. The walk to metro is longer than expected.

List of why I'd never rate this place well: - The WIFI is terrible, often not even being able to load gmail.com for minutes at a time. - The water in the shower oscillates between normal and scorching hot. - There was an ironing board. It was dirty, so I could only use a small portion of it. - There... More

The Ilissos is more of a motel than a hotel, an inexpensive place that serves as a pitstop if you're planning to stay in Athens for just a day or two. My friend and I used this hotel as an overnight stop after visiting the Greek islands. The hotel is situated behind the red-light district and the side of a... More

The hotel was fine. The staff is friendly, the wifi is not good, and one of our rooms which was advertised as non-smoking obviously had recently had a smoker staying in there who lit up frequently. The room reeked of cigarettes. The location is pretty convenient for getting to major sites like the Acropolis and Parthenon. Also, free breakfast was... More

The staff is friendly. The room is okay but the floor is a little bit dirty, they should do something about that in room 107. They made a lunchbox because I needed to go to the airport at 4am. The breakfast is good, but their coffee sucks big time ( i am coffee addicted) please use the right Douwe Egberts... More
