Y Hotel
Ranked #1 of 11 Hotels in Kifissia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 June 2013

We loved the Y Hotel, and are so glad that we took what we thought was a little bit of a risk staying outside of central Athens. The staff were just so genuinely nice that that would probably be enough for a positive recommendation, but there's more to love than just the staff. The buffet breakfast (served from 7am!!!), the in-room coffeemaker, the other amenities, the value, the neighbourhood were all great, and the price was about the same as staying in central Athens at a much lower-standard hotel would have been.

For anyone concerned about the out-of-town location, don't be! A nice 10-minute walk gets you to the Kifissia metro station, which is on the same line (metro line 1) as the Piraeus metro station. Thus, it's a one-seat ride (EUR1.40) to your ferry to the islands, and you will actually get a seat because Kifissia is the end of the line! It's also on the same line as Thissia station (for the Acropolis site via the ancient agora). For those coming from the airport, buy a EUR8 ticket from the suburban rail counter, take the suburban train (you can't go in the wrong direction because the airport is at the end of the line), then switch at Neratziotissa to the metro (free transfer). The price is the same as if you were to take the metro from the airport, and the journey time is less than half because the suburban rail line skirts the city whereas a metro journey requires you to go into central Athens in order to make the switch to metro line 1. (Our journey took 35 minutes; the metro would have been around 75.) The one limitation is that the last suburban train leaves the airport at 2144 (9:44 p.m.) as of this writing, whereas the metro runs until around midnight.

One of the best experiences this year and I've been travelling a lot.

The staff is most helpful and friendly, the rooms nicely decorated and spacious. The lobby feels like you don't want to leave with the cozy seating and water element. The shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are of a very good quality, a treat!

The location - in the other (quiet) end of an amazing shopping street! Everything is close by - supermarket, restaurants, quality shopping.

The only shortcoming for me - the double meant two twins pushed together (you could feel the crack). But could be that they also have proper double beds.

All in all, would be very happy to stay there again.

We found this place quite by accident and couldn't have been happier. It is a beautiful hotel on a quiet street, but close to everything. We had a room facing the street and it was quite large with a large bathroom and a cute little balcony overlooking the tree-lined street. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. We could not have asked for a better experience.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the street.

We are quite used to staying in this charming little hotel located in the north of Athens and we are every time more convinced that this is the right choice for a quiet stay not too far from the busy capital.

The staff is very professional and welcoming, the rooms are comfortable and modern especially the ones on the 5th floor. Lots of restaurants, bars and cafes can be found in the immediate surroundings.

I have stayed in Y hotel 2 times when was travelling for business. Y is a small and smart hotel with helpful staff, nice modern breakfast (Greek specialties mixed with classical s a good style) and good cleanness level. There is no restaurant at the hotel, but you can easily reach to different eating places by 5 minutes.
Rooms are cozy, in pastel tones, very clean (if you are too close to elevators, a bit noisy)
Only thing which could be different - more lights to corridors and elevator (it may be too much required nowadays when we would like to save energy, I know).

Room Tip: Preferred room should not be close to elevator.
