The Hotel itself is great. Room is very nice. Hotel is clean.American breakfast was great. Very nice place to stay. The hotel is not located exactly in one of the places you would visit but it is a walking distance from Syntagma square or one Metro station to ride while there is a close Metro station to the hotel. If you like quite places not far from the center it is defently the place for you. If you like to walk out from the Hotel and see immediately the place you came to visit you might want to take another hotel.

Dear Guest

Thank you for your positive comments about the Hilton Athens.

With regards to the hotel location, as you mention, we are very close to the centre of Athens, and the transportation that connects the hotel to the main city sites and the airport it is very convenient.

It is a real pleasure to read that the hotel facilities and services were up to your expectations and you were satisfied. We do look forward to welcoming you back in the near future!

I read many of the reviews and booked this with some trepidation. I found none of the negatives. The hotel is grand in an austere fashion, the staff is excellent and well trained, the food at the small restaurant is great, and at Milos' even better (though both are quite pricey).

Our rooms paid at the lowest available prepaid rate were excellent with very comfortable beds, and one of the best / nicest hotel bathrooms I've experienced.

The indoor pool is fantastic, as are the other spa/gym facilities (there's a $15 per person charge for use of the "pool/spa") which include steam and dry sauna, locker rooms, full gym with elliptical and treadmills and weights as well as a "health bar" with fruit and juices.

The hotel is about a 20-30 minute walk from the Acropolis, and we found walking to / from the hotel very easy.

The hotel is also within easy walking distance to several excellent restaurants, including "Code Blue" which I recommend.

If there is anything to "ding" it's the tiny TV sets in the rooms -- tiny 17 inch LCD panels, but hopefully you're not in Athens to watch TV.

Wifi is €23/day.

I stayed at the Hilton when I had travelled down to Athens with a group of friends.
It is a nice hotel set in a quiet part of Athens, well away from the old part of Athens which can get quite noisy at times.
Getting to any part of the city is not a problem from the Hilton as the nearby metro station is quite convenient.
Overall a very comfortable stay with good food.......... would definately stay there again during my next visit to Athens

I`m not used to be surrounded with so many people enjoying rooms paid by their companies or their governments.The atmosphere is old world hotel in a not very first world country : rich greek families enjoying tea,executives from every place in the world,some international celebrities giving interviews and being photographed in the garden,rude business men and their bodyguards,snobbish staff,skyrocketed prices,even well worked young ladies at breakfast !
That said,the hotel is in very good condition even with his age and despite being an ugly and mammoth building.Our room was modern,comfortable and spotlessly clean,with a good size,even the bathroom,well stocked and lighted.Almost all brand new.We enjoy no noise in our rooms from the street or other guests.
The location is handy for political and business visitors,less for tourist reasons.There is a couple of fine museums in the inmediate vicinity,and the Kolonaki neighbourhood is in front of the hotel,the playground of the well to do athenians,but if you want to visit this city and stay in this type of hotel,I`d advise to try the luxury hotels around Syntagma,within walking distance of all the sights and with a little more of greek flavor.You can reach Syntagma from the Hilton in a 20 min pleasant walk,and you have buses and metro at the door,even the bus line to the airport.

I stayed here for 3 nights on business. I was on the one of the executive floors which I would recommend as you get the use of a private lounge with complimentary drinks and snacks, all in a room with fantastic views of the Acropolis. You also get to have your breakfast here. If you are staying here you must try out the roof top bar, with a great mix of music but with a glass of pinot grigot at €9.50, you may just want the one drink! The staff treat you like royalty here and the restaurant is great but pricey.

Overall a great place to stay if you are not picking up the tab.

I've stayed twice at the Athens Hilton, both times after the renovation for the Olympic games. The hotel is in a good location a short walk from a metro station and if the weather is not hot a very pleasurable walk to many attractions in Athens.

Rooms are very nice and with modern decoration. Bathrooms are really beautiful and the arrangement of the room ideal for relaxation. The lobby is one of the best I've seen in city hotels (although some friends find it "cold") and generally the public spaces very well decorated. Staff is incredible (which I think is a norm in the Hilton group) and among the best I've experienced in Europe.

My big complain in the Athens Hilton is the extremely expensive restaurants. Yes it is a Hilton and the quality is very good but the prices are extremely high. Despite the high prices though, the Galaxy bar is one of the best and worths a visit even if you don't stay at Hilton.
