“dirtiest hotel in athens”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

my fiancé and i were coming back from mykonos to beirut and we were forced to stay 1 night in athens so we booked at myrto hotel.

the taxi that was driving us from the airport to the hotel took 35 euros, when we reached the hotel we asked the reception to send someone pick our luggage, they said sorry but you have to get the luggage cause we don't have this service. we checked in, they gave us room 102 that is located in −1 and close to the pool.

the room smells like if there are dead bodies inside, the bed sheets are dirty, the whole room is disgusting i stayed for like 30 min in the room trying to accept it but i couldn't, i went out to the pool and sat at the bar and ordered 2 corona beers. while the bartender is preparing the beers, a customer next to me was bleeding from his knee. he called the bartender and gave him a tissue full of blood and water, so the bartender took it with his hand and threw it in the bin without any gloves in his hand and he washed his hands without soap. then the bartender cut the lemon and put it in my beer.

after throwing the beer i went up to the reception and asked them to call the hotel's owner, i talked to him and told him my story, he was sorry for the bartender and he gave me another room (104) next to the one he gave me the first time. i entered the room and same story dirty as hell.

i took my suitcases and left the room in seconds. i went to the owner and asked him to give me back my money, he refused. so i called a cab and left the hotel and waited for 12 hours at the airport for my flight. my one hour stay cost me a full day at myrto hotel. it was the worst day of my life.

thank you trip advisor for letting us post our comments. this hotel must close.

Room Tip: don't even think of going to myrto hotel. sleeping at the airport is much better than myrto h...

We only stayed at this property one night before heading out to the Peleponnese region the next day. The staff (owners?) were very welcoming and friendly, even though we had notified them in advance that we would arrive past 10:30 pm. They speak very good English, and they provided us with great driving directions the next morning.

The hotel is a little dated, BUT, for the price of 58euro, we found it to be just right. The continental breakfast is pretty basic, but the coffee was good. No complaints here.

The room was very clean, as was the bathroom. The sheets were very clean, and the pillow cases are embroidered with the hotel logo. Towels were plentiful for two people. Do bring your own toiletries, otherwise there is the basic tiny soap and shampoo sachets.

The grounds are pretty, with lots of greenery. The pool is beautiful, with a great deck!

Location, in relation to the airport is about 16kms, which is a comfortable distance to drive. Getting to it, even late at night was very easy. We reached it just be the simple instructions given to us from the car hire staff.

The town of Marathonos apparently has beautiful beaches, so, perhaps a stay of a couple of days would be recommended. We we just transiting, and we did not enjoy what Marathonos offers.

There are perhaps a couple of negatives, such as a very small shower, and not a very good shower fixture. The rooms are very small, so, if you have a lot of luggage, maybe you can bring to your room only what you need, and put the rest of it in the storage room.

Room Tip: Even though our room was on the side of the road, it was quiet late at night. Perhaps those rooms fa...

I picked this hotel because we needed to stay in Athens for a quick stop over before heading to Istanbul the next morning. The hotel isn't as close to the airport as it makes out to be. Took about 30min drive and our cab there charged 35 euros. We organised a transfer back to the airport with the hotel; they said they would call a cab for us and that it'd be 28 euros.

This "cab" turned out to be a privately owned old VW golf who's driver was clearly someone known to the owner. What's more, this other couple was also asking for a cab they'd booked and the old man at reception rudely tried to pack them in with us. 4 people plus luggage into a tiny vehicle. When we asked for half our transfer money back because we were sharing with another couple, the guy first stormed off ignoring us and when our (very polite) driver called him back, the old man grabbed the other couples stuff and yanked them from the boot. Those poor guys then had to wait for another driver.

A proper cab from Athens airport to the city centre is flat rate 35 euros and approx 45 min. I would have preferred to do that and been in the city again, with more restaurants and things to do around us than at Myrto which was nearly as far and as costly to get to but with only one tavern nearby for dinner.

As an aside, the room was adequate and breakfast (included) was decent. The lady who checked us in was lovely. It was just that old man who's behaviour I found unacceptable.

We only stayed 1 night and thought this to be a clean and friendly place . The food at the hotel was great for dinner and quick as we have 3 kids under 10 . The owner of the place went out of his way, to help print tickets. The bed were the best in Greece ,my 9 year old said . As we had a early ferry they put the breakfast out for us . Good cheap family friendly place .Thanks for your kindness ....

Room Tip: We had 2 rooms on the bottom floor near the pool .

We stayed 2 nights while waiting for your cruise. We found the staff to be friendly, the rooms simple but clean and the grounds beautiful. Just a short walk to the beach in a safe neighborhood. The food at the pool is great, and breakfast was good as well. They could not have been nicer.

Room Tip: We had a family room on the first floor near the pool. Loved it.

Stayed one night before taking a ferry from Rafina. Location is fine for that purpose, 10 minutes and 10 euro in a taxi to the port. The pool was the only nice factor about the hotel otherwise. The pool bar was expensive and the overall service was bad. The night clerk was the only service minded person we met. The rooms were incredibly cramped and rather shabby and the rooms we had were right next to the reception. All night there was a constant noise of phones, people,bags being pulled across the hall. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

We stayed overnight on our way to Lindos. We were overwhelmed but how friendly and helpful the staff our. Rooms are basic, but comfortable. Staff kept the kitchen open as our flight was delayed. The best kebabs and greek salad in the whole of Greece! That's saying something! We had a family group including a 3 year old and a 79 year old. The staff could not have been nicer. Can definitely recommend.
