“Well located but really only adequate”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

This hotel is really well situated for the Acropolis being just a few minutes' walk away. We had a sidelong view of the Parthenon from our window. It's also only about a 600 yard walk from the nearest Metro station but be warned - heading up to the hotel is very steep if you have heavy baggage.

The room was really tiny with it being all you could do to squeeze through the gap between the end of the bed and the wall. Perfectly clean, although I do wonder why Greek hotels seem to mount their showers at waist height or not even have a holder at all.

Breakfast was distinctly average with the scrambled eggs being stone cold both mornings.

Given that this hotel was certainly not cheap, it struggled in a few areas and I can really only give it an average rating.

Stayed her for 2 nights October, great location about 500m from bottom of acropolis entrance, good cafes nearby and easy walk to other places, hop off bus also at bottom of acropolis, hotel modern, rooms small, not luxury,but everything you need. Rates for weekend a bit steep, but that's how rates are driven these days. Staff helpful, would recommend.

The rooms are beautiful for what you are paying. The staff are very nice and the breakfast is very adequate. PERFECTLY located right near the metro and right near the beautiful Acropolis. I lived in Athens for one year and there were no other hotels that incorporated all of these features as fantastically as this one. AND, there is a gorgeous view from every bedroom window as well as the rooftop. Stay here!!

Wonderful location within easy walk of the Acropolis, Herodus Atticus Theater, the Acropolis Museum, the Plaka area and many other ancient attractions and museums. The rooms and the hotel are recently renovated in a tasteful manner including with modern bathroom facilities. A healthy breakfast is served overlooking the swimming pool and include a good variety of bread, pastry, cereal and fresh fruits. Sleep is comfortable as surroundings are surprisingly quiet. Plenty of excellent restaurants are found in walking distance of hotel. This is a wonderful and extremely comfortable hotel, which offers excellent value. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and look forward to return.

This modern hotel has compact rooms but we had a lovely view from our balcony, looking one way up at the Acropolis and the other way to the sea. The staff were very helpful and it was only a short walk to reach the main sites of Athens. There is a small pool but we didn't use it.

We were very pleased with our choice in choosing The Acropolis Hill Hotel. The reception area was clean comfortable and the receptionists friendly. I had originally requested a room with a balcony overlooking the Acropolis which wasn't allocated on arrival but without any problem the room was changed. It was worth it the view at night over the Acropolis was lovely. Our room was comfortable and quiet even though the road is quite busy. Breakfast was included with hot of cold choices and very good. Wi fi was also included which is always a bonus.
The location was good we walked to the Acropolis and then picked up the on/off bus which was very good. We got off at lunchtime and watched the changing of the guard. Well worth seeing get there a few minutes before to get a good view. I did e mail the hotel in advance for a car to collect us from the airport. The price was reasonable he also took us to our cruise ship? The driver spoke very good English he was friendly and helpful in advising us of places to see. The receptionist was helpful when we asked for advise on places to eat. We couldn't find his recommendation the Strophi the first night so we ate in the Acropolis it was clean and basic but the food good and seasonable. The second night we found the Strophi we ate in the roof garden definitely more upmarket than our first night. The setting lovely we had a table in the roof garden if you go after 8pm book in advance. The food was lovely and also reasonable prices.
The only reason haven't scored this hotel higher was the lack of tea/coffee making facilities in the room.

Room Tip: Nice to see the Acropolis at night when lit up from our balcony.
