“Nice hotel for the money”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

My wife and I just completed a two-week "trip of a lifetime" to Italy and Greece. We spent one night in Athens in route to the Greek Islands and the Athens Way hotel was a great value for the money. It was a little shock at first as we arrived late at night to Greece from Italy - definitely a difference in standard of living. However, the Athens Way hotel had a very nice and large room and a great rooftop bar. They even provided a welcome drink (a unique Greek concoction) and secured transportation to and from the airport. A very pleasant experience.

visited few weeks ago... for one-night stay... got an apartment..
first look was a decent stay... but when we returned at 2 in the morning believe it or not... there was no hot water..!!! waited for few minutes... called a few times the reception where the service was far below average....dont want to mention anything about it... dont want to bring these memories back...bottom line was that we were told to wait a bit... even an hour later same case... disappointing...
next day breakfast was good... on the way out another receptionist said that "these things happen..!!!" .... yeap.... that was it guys... be prepared....
we paid only the deposit... was not in the mood for more arguing...

The hotel offers excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and the personnell friendly. The wifi is free. The bar has fair prices. Breakfast was very decent. I would visit again! Very recommended!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Athens. The bedroom was a good size and same with the bathroom. The hotel was very clean. We had excellent service as the girls at the front reception were very helpful with assisting us to arrange transportation and giving us maps to get to the bus and various locations within the city. The only downside to this hotel is that it is in a very noisy part of the city and it is quite a walking distance away from the main attractions in Athens. If you are looking for good value and don't mind walking and some noise, this is the place for you.

Very nice room, very friendy personel, good location. First time to this hotel and I am definately going to visit it again on my next trip to Athens. Close to a metro station and even closer to Eksarxia square with all the bars and places to eat and hang around.

Room Tip: try to avoid the rooms facing Ippokratous str, to avoid the traffic noise

We stayed here for 3 nights after arriving in Athens from Australia. The room was clean and a decent size, the shower was super hot, the staff really friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was fine. Saying this, the beds were like sleeping on concrete (like most of the beds in Greece!) and the airconditioning in our room was poor. I think I would advise people to stay closer in to the Plaka, unless you specifically wish to be away from the hustle and bustle of the area. Even though Athens Way is not far from the centre of Athens, we walked all day, and would have preferred to be closer into the Plaka in order to change/shower before dinner, or just to pop in and out if we needed to. I suppose we were also pretty jet lagged while we were staying here, and would have preferred not to have a 30min round trip (by foot) in order to have a sneaky afternoon nap!

Athens way is located in a very convinient location near everything.
After reading the comments at Trip Advisor I expected a higher level of service but I was not happy at all.
Air Conditioning didn´t worked for 2 of the 3 nights that we stayed. That means that 2 of the 3 nights we didn´t sleeped well because we needed to keep the windows open!
Breakfast is poor in terms of variety but good in terms of quality.
The rooms are clean but they look old and need update.
When doing the check out the credit card machine did not worked (It was the only place in all our trip that this happened) so I needed to go out to the street to look for a bank and bring some cash!!!
Off course these are not the standards that I expect for a good hotel. I do not recommend!
