“Nice and very white Hotel”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

We stayed in the Athens Diamond Plus for one night and overall enjoyed the stay.

The hotel is a short walk to Plaka district/Acropolis and is very close to Syntagma square which is great for catching the train back to the airport. The check in process was easy and is done across the road at the Athens Diamond hotel. We had a deluxe double room and although it was spacious and had the very white decor we expected it smelt very very strongly of cigarette smoke including all the bedding. Given we were only staying one night I didn't bother asking to change rooms however should our stay have been longer I would have wanted to. A buffet breakfast was included and there was a reasonable variety of food on offer for a hotel of this size.

Just checked out having spent 2 nights in a standard double- the last they had left. Very pleased with the helpful and friendly staff, from check in to breakfast and then checkout. Great location! The only thing missing was a little bar but there are so many around it didn't really matter. They supplied bottled water as a complimentary service which was very welcome in the heat! Some people on tripadvisor mentioned it was noisy. I have to say we were never disturbed and the hotel was full. Really reasonably priced and would absolutely go back again. Thank you for a lovely 2 days hosting us!!

First let me get the 800-pound gorilla out of the room first - there's absolutely no view from this hotel or its sister property, Athens Diamond Hotel. This was because the 2 hotels faces each other in close proximity across a narrow street and so what you see from your room would be the rooms of the other hotel and as the street's kind of narrow and not a scenic nor particularly interesting street at that, there's really nothing much to see.

Now that that's out of the way, everything else about the hotel, from location to comfort to cleanliness was really good. And the cleanliness really deserve a mentioning because I had never seen such ultra enthusiastic housekeeping ever! Each time I pass the corridor or something I would see the very efficient, housekeeping cleaning something and she seemed to really really enjoyed doing the cleaning (with a smile, humming a tune, etc...). And the fact that she managed to keep the whole Athens Diamond Plus property so white after all these years was really a testament to her skills. Bravo to that!

The hotel's setup was small but the great service really shines through. The buffet breakfast spread was also reasonably good and its location near Syntagma Square made getting around Athens a breeze.

If there's any complain, it would be that the drainage in the shower should be better - due to a lack of incline to channel the waste water to the drainage system, the shower areas got a little flooded each time I took a shower.

Having never been to Athens, I was a little nervous about where to book, and after much research found the Diamond Plus online. We were not disappointed.

Location wise, it is excellent, with easy acces to Syntagma Square and Plaka so everything was pretty much within walking distance.

The welcome was very friendly, and the rooms kept immaculately. Everything was white and spotless - even the mirrors in the lift had no smears/smudges - and the on cue lighting and music in it which started up on entry was great.

It was also one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in. The room was large and airy and we wanted for nothing. Given the relatively cheap price, this was excellent value for money.

Would recommend and stay here again.

We've stayed in Athens a few times and though we love every part of it we must say that the diamond plus had the greatest vantage point to all the areas we wanted to hit. The white rooms were spacious and clean with a balcony. The plus in the Diamond goes to Yiannis on the front desk. Your quick wit and shiny personality always made the information you gave priceless. He is one of the reasons we will be back. Shout out to Stephano the bell hop for looking after our things and the ladies at breakfast for your morning smiles. We hope this information falls into the right hands. Travel well.

This hotel was perfect for our 1 night stay in Athens. The location is central. The rooms are spacious but could be cleaner. The all white is very nice. The reception and breakfast room is across the road at the Diamond hotel.

Stayed only for a night.
Check in was efficient and we were sent to the building opposite with the porter.
Room was of a decent size and so was the bathroom. However, the disappointment of the stay was the shower in the bathroom. The water drained very slowly from the shower and hence the bathroom got very wet when opening the shower door whilst trying to get out. Also, we also spotted a dead cockroach near our room door in the afternoon / evening though this was cleaned off in the morning.
Breakfast was across the road and had a good selection - even with some freshly squeezed orange juice.
We left our luggage with the hotel as we checked out before heading to the acropolis and were not given luggage tags - it is a good thing that our luggage was still there when we got back in the evening. We just informed them we were taking it and rolled it out of the hotel.
However, hotel location is close to Syntagma Square and you are able to take the metro from the airport and then just walk over to the hotel.
