“Great place and location and friendly owner/staff, ”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

First this is basically a family/owner operated hotel. Tony is well placed owning a hotel and is very personable and helpful. His recommendation are very good. Hotel is being updated and our room was pristine. The lift did work despite reviews I saw saying it didn't. The construction and updating never affected our stay or sleep.
Our room was new, stylish, clean and awesome. Location is great very near (walking distance to almost everything historic.(5-15 minute walk).
Now the slight downsides. Air condition wasn't the best (new but not upto US standards but American standards on A/C are higher than most of the world)
and one minor detail is a shower curtain in the bathroom would be nice.

We just let Athens after staying there for 3 days. When planning, we looked for hotels for quite a while, especially wanting AC, since July is HOT in Greece and not all girls have it. After walking around all day, you just want to come back to a little air conditioning.

We chose Hotel Tony based on a couple of things.
1. It had a mini frig and microwave and some basic dishes. We liked to grab breakfast and snacks at a mini market and eat out on the balcony. We even reheated a dinner that was enough for two meals since there was a microwave. We didn't do this every night, but eating breakfast, lunch and dinner out every day can get expensive!

2. It is NOT in the Plaza or another neighborhood that is overrun with tourists. Everyone walking around was a local, but it wasn't too far or out of the way either.

3. It is literally 5 minutes from the Sygrou-Fix metro stop and you can get to almost anywhere by taking the metro. One note, the map provided on Tony's website was hard to follow and we went in every direction except the correct one once we got out of the subway. It was actually very close, but the map was not as helpful as we thought it would be. Tired, hot and jet-lagged, we finally hailed a cab that took us 5 minutes up the street! Even though the guy at the reception desk sort-of made fun of us for getting a taxi, we were happy to do so after being lost and hot for 20 or more minutes. Pulling luggage up the hill is not fun by any stretch.

4. Most rooms, including ours, have been very recently renovated.

5. It was affordable by Athens standards.

The one thing we did not like about the hotel was not important enough to shy away. The shower, being newly renovated in a modern style, had no door- just a half wall, as seems to be more common in Europe. Thus, no matter how you do it, taking a shower sprays water all over the floor of the bathroom. Don't bother putting down bath mats, they just get soaked. There was a drain, but the floor stayed wet for a while. It was annoying, but not the worst thing in the world.

I booked a room and got an e-mail the next day offering to their services to provide a taxi to the hotel and to assure the room was ready for me. I cannot speak to the accomodations but the staff are responsive, concise and friendly in e-mail conversation.

Hotel Tony is one of the best not going to break the bank hotels. We arrived late due to British Airways loosing 85% of the passengers on the plains bags, but Tony greeted us anyways. He also was very helpful in giving us a map and recommending restaurants and sites that were worth our time. He also helped with the baggage mess and even called the airline, though they never picked up, to check on the bags. His staff is excellent and I loved the room. The bathroom was amazing and the fact they had hot water was a major plus. He is doing renovations so it shows he listens and actually cares about his customer feedback. His location is also amazing I highly recommend!

I'll be honest, we were pretty skeptical about this hotel when we drove up in the taxi. The neighborhood is your typical Athens neighborhood, and the hotel front is less than impressive. There was major construction (we were there in May, and it seems the renovations are complete now), which included the rooftop that we couldn't access. That being said, of the 5 hotels we stayed at in out 17 day trip to Greece, Hotel Tony was by FAR our favorite. The staff is beyond helpful; they called taxis, got us a hairdryer, and even offered to do our laundry (which they did, and had back to us within the hour!). The room was beautiful (the apartment), and the bathroom was easily the best hotel bathroom I've ever seen. The shower was wonderful (better than my own), and the decor was classy and comfortable. After about 9pm, the hotel was locked, and the only access was through a side door with a key code. It felt incredibly secure, and we never felt as if our belongings were at risk. The hotel was always fairly quiet, despite the construction. The location was wonderful, just a 10 minute walk to the Acropolis, and barely a 10 minute walk to several restaurants, grocery stores, and bakeries. I highly, highly recommend. We loved it so much that we've already booked out second stay for September.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less street noise, and pay more for the apartment. Very comfortable.

Excellent value for money. We arrived very late, but Tony ensured that he greeted us and showed us to our room. (I had read reports that there was no late check in but this is definitely not the case) We stayed in a Double room-studio with a balcony. Even though this only looked over the street it was very nice to relax on after a day of sightseeing. The room was beautifully renovated, very tastefully decorated and had a small kitchenette if you felt so inclined to prepare your own meals. Easy walk to restaurants and all the sights. Very quite area and the hotel itself is very peaceful. Could not fault our stay at all :)
