“a satisfactory & convenient hotel”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

I stayed at this hotel for six nights. The reception was welcoming and helpful. I was in in a compact room set up for single occupancy, although a double bed.

Room description: two accessible powerpoints. Window, no balcony facing away from the roads into a view of others' balconies. Small ensuite bath with shower over. Two narrow desk/dresser areas so I was ok for my work, and ++free wifi which is great news, refreshing. I hate having to pay extra for wifi . So for me that's a big plus, and it seemed to be good enough - even managed successful skype home. However, at times it did drop to 1mbs so I did have to go seeking a stronger signal in reception or mezzanine business lounge

Only other minor grumble - the bath towel is tiny.

Nearby cafe's and bars seem ok, very convenient, notably the famous 'dirty food' caravan selling superb kebab 'meat' sandwich.

The hotel restaurant is very reasonable, a plate of risotto was about 5 euro; a complete meal for 15euro (salad, wine).

Breakfast foods ok, if not as hot as could be; coffee from a douwe egbert machine was drinkable but nothing fantastic

On arrival, the cistern was dripping continuously and noisily, i mentioned it to reception, it was repaired quickly.

The shower fitting was poor so that it did not stay securely on the wall.

Major downside (as I was here for work) was that there's no IRON ("we don't give them out for safety reasons"!!) and at 5euro a shirt and suit,that would be a fairly big hit on the weeks budget just to look uncrumpled, and can't be done by the morning after my arrival anyway.

Bus stop to/from the airport x95 is very near and only 5 euro. Megaro Musiskis metro about 5 minutes walk 8euro to the airport.

Dear andrew b,

We appreciate the time and effort you put into recording your comments concerning your recent stay at the Airotel Alexandros hotel. Every observation is extremely valuable and helpful to us.
Indeed irons are not given out for security reasons. In any case, the management examines seriously the possibility to install in the guestrooms a system that will both provide this service to its guests and at the same time is safe enough for everybody.
Regarding the shower fittings, a major renovation of the bathroom fittings is already in progress.
Once again thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. Hope to see you again in one of your future visits in Athens.

Kind Regards,
Theodoros Evangelopoulos

Excellent value, helpful staff, best breakfasts with loads to choose from, fast free WiFi, we were able to stream movies with no problem, close to airport bus stop and five minute walk to metro, two stops from Syntagma square.
Air conditioning not great, fridge was emitting more heat than the air conditioner could cope with, which was ok in November, but in the height of summer it would be unbearable.
We were upgraded to a junior suite for no extra charge and room was quite big. Cleanliness was good.
Hotel was on side street set back from the road, the main road is very busy, so hotel location is better than some, as I would imagine it's a lot quieter than the hotel next door that overlooks the busy road.
The hotel's restaurant was ok, a Mediterranean menu that was a bit limited. We ate at a restaurant across the road called Marmita's, the food was authentic Greek, excellent value and quality, the waiting staff were also very helpful and spoke good English.

Hello. Whenever we travel to Athens, we try to stay at the Alexandros. It's a very good hotel, great staff, excellent location, fair prices, tasty breakfast - everything a traveler could want. We were there in October, 2013 while completing nearby annual medical exams (see - also close to excellent medical care). Anyway, the tests revealed my wife needed emergency surgery. At that moment, when hotel staff were informed of these new circumstances, everything at the hotel changed dramatically. They immediately became our extended family and I/we were provided every support we required. Want to stay at a hotel where you are more than just another traveler/tourist? Try the Alexandros. All hotels should use the Alexandros as a model. We would never consider going anywhere else while in Athens. I am grateful beyond words for all their efforts in helping to protect and assist us.

Nothing really stands out good or bad about this hotel. It's average but a decent 3 star. The location is so-so. We were told that there were only twin beds, but we had a problem with the key receiver and were moved to a room with a king bed. There are balconies but no chairs and ours overlooked a noisy street. The breakfast was outstanding and better than any other place we stayed. We did not try the restaurant for other meals because we found two places just steps away and another a block away which seemed to be more of the Greek experience we were looking to enjoy. The taverna almost directly across this street was fantastic. If we return to Athens we would find a hotel with a better location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street. And if you prefer a king bed instead of twins ask for that as...

Dear Sharon C,

We appreciate the time and effort you put into recording your comments concerning your recent stay at the Airotel Alexandros Hotel.
Every observation is extremely valuable and helpful to us in our continued objective to strive for excellence in all areas of the hotel.
As far your points are concerened, we would like first of all to inform you that rooms with double bed are few. As a result, we offer them only upon availability.
Additionally, all balconies have chairs, which unfortunately during the time you stayed in our hotel, they had been removed in order to be maintained.
Once again, thank you for your valuable feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Airotel Alexandros hotel on your next visit to Athens.

Kind Regards,

Theodoros Evangelopoulos

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel. It was nothing special - the rooms were typical of most American Hotels - clean bathroom - a bit dated decor. The breakfast was very good and had a wide selection to choose from. The location was a 10 minute walk to the nearest Metro station. There were a few bars and restaurants around the hotel but we didnt spend much time there. The hotel was chosen for us by our tour group - I'd have probably chosen a different hotel. However, the place was clean, friendly, and suited our needs. There was no swimming pool and the view from our room was just of the back alley/couryard - nothing special.

Spent three nights here. I got a good Internet rate (although realised after Athanais next door was 20 euro cheaper a night and is a better hotel).

Booked a non smoking room and had to spend my first night being smoked out of it. I asked to be moved but they couldn't until the next day. This a
Is a deal breaker for me. If they didn't have non smoking rooms they should have told me beforehand. This is the second hotel I have stayed in Athens where people smoke in their room and leave their doors open to let their smoke out.
I opted for half board which was 11 euro a day. When I got there I saw most things on the menu that I would eat were 3 or 4 euro. I asked to opt out half board but they said it wasn't possible. Of course it was so I went to reservations online myself and asked them to cancel it. I am a vegetarian and there was nothing on the menu I would eat except a toasted sandwich. I wasn't going to pay 11 euro for a 3 euro sandwich. But the restaurant was nice and very good value if you don't go for half board or if you are going to eat a lot.

Dear Guest,

On behalf of the entire team at the Airotel Alexandros, we would like to thank you for your feedback on our hotel.

We were sorry to hear that you have mixed feelings about your stay with us.

Regarding the smell of smoke in your room, please note that the room provided was a non - smoking one, but unfortunately there are some guests that do not respect this restriction and smoke. We would like to assure you that if something like this comes to our attention, we always make the necessary comments and remarks.

As far as the half bord menu is concerned, the price given (11 euro) includes a salad, a main course and dessert or fruit, which we think is very reasonable. It would have been great if you have informed us about your dietary habits, in order to be able to offer a suitable menu for you.

Hope we will have more opportunities in the future to welcome you and extend the warm hospitality that our guests have come to expect from us over the years.

Kind Regards,

Thodoris Evangelopoulos
Front Office Manager

The room was just perfect, staff extremely polite and helpful. Location just perfect, whitin few minutes walking distance from 2 metro stations or bus station. Nice and safe neighborhood. Unless you have many luggage, there is no need to go back to the airport by taxi. Metro will take you directly to the airport for 8 EUROS per person (ride is about 45 minutes). Next time we travel back to Athens, we certainely stay again at Alexandros airotel. Thank you all
