“Nice Stay worthy of "Excellent"”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Clean hotel, good beds and pillows, great shower and excellent breakfast. The room was a little small for my wife and I plus our 13 year old son, but not bad. Having cappuccino available in the morning was a nice touch with a good breakfast that is included. The hotel is on a quiet street, so other than a dog barking in the distance for a short while, it was quiet. Overall, an excellent stay.

Subway for Hotel:
It's about a 15 min walk to Kiffisia station that is pleasant enough. The subway ride to go around the Acropolis is easy enough. It's possible to make the walk from the hotel to the station with rolling luggage, just come in from Kolokotroni street for the easiest way, or just take a taxi from Kiffisia station. The subway from the airport to the hotel is fairly easy if you get off at Doukissis Plakentias station and take the suburban railway to Neratziotissa station (3rd stop I think). Many subway maps don't show the suburban railway between the 2 subway lines, yet your 3 or 7 day tourist ticket is good for it and it saves you some time from having to go all the way to Monastiraki station to switch lines.

Dear Pauls_Tra,
Thank you so much for your very kind review.

It is always a pleasure to hear that you were satisfied with the quality of your stay.

You are totally right the location is perfect, in a quiet street, really peaceful and safe as well but also so close to the center of Kifissia.

We would like also to thank you about your description how to reach the hotel with the subway.
Our guests often tell us how helpful it is.

We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you and your family back very soon!
Kind regards,
Chryssa Zarifopoulou

Stayed at the Y Hotel with my two adult sons - 4 days 06/08/ to 11/08/14. Fab Hotel.
In a nutshell:
1. Very stylish 3 star Hotel, spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms with array of good quality complimentary products
2. Staff extremely welcoming and helpful, at all times. I tripped on the stairs, hurting my ankle, and before I knew, they'd sorted out a ice compress for me, which helped keep the swelling down.
3. Stairs are a spiral design (no doubt due to lack of 'building' space) lit by spot-lights at ground level, therefore a bit on the dark side underfoot, so care is needed if you're wearing flip-flops! Could do with extra lighting but this is not a complaint, merely an observation, it did not detract from the attractions of the Hotel!
3. Breakfast offers a great selection (although fruit would benefit from being covered), noticed a
fruit fly on the melons! However, I hasten to add again, this is merely an observation did not spoil my stay at the Hotel, and I'm a rather fussy individual anyway!
4. Other reviewers are correct, in that metro is approx 15 mins walk, through leafy sumptuous Kiffisia suburb, and then depending on your Athens destination, approx 30/40 mins to major attractions. Quick tip, before your metro journey, check the route, because depending on your destination, you might have to change to another metro.
5. Another quick tip, for what it's worth, the Acropolis and Parthenon queues are horrendous early in the day, we were advised to go late afternoon, turned out to be good advice
6. The gym seemed a little under-used, according to my 21 yr old son, whose very into 'training', the equipment is quite limited. But, let me quickly add this was not a problem for any of us, who wants to spend time in a gym when on holiday, I certainly don't!
6. If you're up for it, the penthouse suite is super, bit like an apartment, pure indulgence, plush furniture and fittings, my sons gave it the thumbs up, and why wouldn't they! A real treat.
7. Whilst at the Hotel, for future reference, I checked out the standard single rooms, although naturally smaller (30 sq meters) than the executive rooms, they look just as comfy and stylish.
Would love to return to this Hotel one day

Room Tip: 402 much quieter than 401!

You need to be aware that this hotel is a fair distance away from the centre of Athens so is 15 mins walk to the metro and then 40 minutes on the metro. Having Sid that it was luxurious haven tucked away in a leafy suburb with good shops and bars nearby. The staff were lovely, good breakfast and great rooms. I was very happy with the comfortable bed and peace and quiet after a hectic week.

My wife and I spent two nights at this hotel in June 2014 and what a great experience, Kifisia is a hidden gem outside of Athens with only a 30 minute train ride into the city center. The hotel was clean, the room was great, the staff was always super nice and helpful. Also the outside sitting area is very relaxing and a great place to sit back and have a drink.This will definitely be our hotel of choice the next time we visit Athens.

This hotel offers the finest service done by the kindest and utterly professional personnel that I have ever come across.
A great breakfast included in the rate and my short stay was heavenly.
Highly recommended.

Had a great two nights here, everything about the place was good from the rooms to the food and especially the staff who were friendly and funny. Room was immaculate, free wifi OK, comfortable bed and good AC. Breakfast had a good selection and the dinner menu had enough on it if you don't have time to go out. Location is very close to some good shopping. If I am back in Athens I will be staying here again.
