Athens Way
Ranked #14 of 53 Athens B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We stayed at Athens Way for a few nights while visiting Athens. We took a cab from the airport and our taxi driver had trouble finding it. The sign is on the side of the building up high, so make sure you look up to see it. It is located on a corner in a pretty busy neighborhood that is a short walk to the Metro and will give you more of a feel for the city as there are many bars and restaurants not too far away with locals. The location is great if you are looking to avoid a touristy area. The top floor of the hotel has a rooftop bar/patio with lots of beautiful flowers. We paid 5 euros for breakfast which was worth it, and had a large selection. Wifi worked well and the ladies at the front desk were very nice and helpful with directions. The rooms were nice and clean, but the room we stayed in was missing a shower door and when we took a shower, water was everywhere! The bed had a big dip in the middle and was very uncomfortable to sleep in. The walls were pretty thin and a few times we heard other couples having sex. Other than that, it met the needs of a place to stay, but these issues were mildly annoying.

Stayed in Athens Way for 1 night. Rooms were very clean, staff was super nice and accommodating, breakfast was decent, hot water and AC available in our room - value for money (considering what you pay).

Make sure you leave your curtains closed as view from the room window is

Location - approx 10 minute walk (on a slope) to nearest Metro station.

Neighbourhood was not so nice but i don't think there are any nice neighbourhoods in the centre of Athens.

All in all - recommended for a short stay in Athens

Stayed here on a recent trip to a convention. The staff were very friendly and spoke excellent english. The room was clean and very modern, no issues whatsoever. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for good value.

Room Tip: Ippokratous can be a bit loud so rooms up higher would be preferrable

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...

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.
