Acropolis Select Hotel
Ranked #52 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 May 2013

The Acropolis Hotel has a very good location, close to most of the major ruins and attractions. We found walking was the best way to get around, and having been duly robbed of over fifty euros by a cab driver, was a little shy on getting back into a cab. The rooms are adequate, very clean and have the benefit of a balcony. The included breakfast was very good with a selection of fruits, cereals and cooked items. The lady that looks after the breakfast is on the ball and is constantly replenishing items.We also found the front desk staff very helpful, and knowledgable, nothing is ever too much trouble.

We stayed 3 nights at the Acropolis Select Hotel. Great location. Within walking distance (about 25-30 mins) to most attractions- Hadrian's Arch, The Acropolis Museum, Plaka, etc... Just 2 blocks away from the Metro station, which made it very convenient. Eateries around the corner, made it easy to have a quick breakfast of a light dinner.
Hotel Reception was very helpful and approachable.
Breakfast at the hotel was decent.
However, the bedroom wasn't what I had expected, having seen the photos on the website. The bedroom, although clean, was rather small, dark and dated. The bathrooms were clean, but really dated and needed some renovations to bring the rooms up to date.
The 2 inconveniences in my opinion is that 1) Wifi is only available at the Lobby. Which made it very inconvenient. 2) There are a few steps leading up to the Lobby and no one to help you with your heavy luggage up those stairs!

Room Tip: Rooms on the side street were quiet.

Great location as it is close to the metro station and all the historical sites. The walk to the Acropolis is really enjoyable. The staff is very nice and helpful and buffet breakfast is included in the price...The rooms have comfortable beds, bathrooms, and air conditioning. We enjoyed a small balcony too. Our room was a bit noisy though, we could hear the TV from next door.

We stayed 2 days at the Acropolis Select hotel the middle of May, 2013. The hotel was clean, and close to the acropolis. the neighborhood seem a little run-down, but we did not feel uncomfortable there. The breakfast was very good and plentiful. We hopped on the Red bus that one could hop on and off. One of the stops was very close to the hotel. While not a 5 star hotel, it was very comfortable and clean. The staff was courteous and informative. We would certainly stay again at the Acropolis Select.

Room Tip: there is a one person elevator if stairs are a problem.

Not a bad hotel. The rooms were adequate but the bathroom was rather small. 12 of us went and were basically of the same opinion. The food was not the best we had on our holiday and the bar was out of draft beer and tonic water although the barman did go to local shop to get some more tonic water.

I think that's a pretty good city hotel with rich breakfast (it is subjective to say whether it is good or not because each person is unique) but personally I liked it.
I went to a period with strikes and it somewhat harder for our movements but the location is ideal if someone wants to go in the city center on foot and more importantly feel safe. I will definitely choose again and would definitely recommend it to friends.
Perhaps the hotel manager should think if it is possible to reduce the price or simply provide free internet access in the rooms because I am sure that with such kind staff is a shame to have unhappy guests.
On the other hand the free access granted to public places gives opportunity for people to say "good morning" and socialize.
