“Great value and location!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Good value hotel next to a metro station. The staff are friendly and helpful. Amazing views from the rooftop bar. Good selection for the buffet breakfast. Wifi is not working in the rooms and you need to go to the lobby reception to get a decent connection. There's a metro station right on the corner.Great location and budget friendly!

This is not a 4 stars hotel. It is 2 stars at best.... !
The pictures of the room are almost "photoshoped"
The picture does not show the ridiculously small bathroom,
The low bed, or the simple cotton sheet on them, and the hard matters.

We left this hotel right after we saw how the real room looks like.

We came to the place tired and we wanted to sleep and the lifts took about twenty minutes to come. It was in a good area with shops and nice staff. I would go again. There is a pool and restaurants. There were lots of disabled people at breakfast coughing all over the food though

We spent two nights in The Stanley in july 2014 on our way to the greek islands!
The pool and the roof terrace does the trick, and the breakfast buffet was great! And to a lower price than other bigcity hotels, only 7 euro pr person.
The rooms were clean, bathroom ok, but the sounds between the bathrooms of conecting rooms was not so pleasant..
The metro is close, so are taxi and busses. Noisy square outside, but what can one expect in a large city like Athens!
The straff was very nice and helpfull!

This hotel needs better wifi and some rebuilding, but price,location,cleanliness and parking (5€ per 24 hours) are very good.So I would probably choose it again.Metro, taxi and sightseeing buses stops are right next to the hotel as well as many sightseeing spots ( in a walking distance).

We chose the Stanley for our last two nights in Greece. I was underwhelmed by the room; although it was large, it was quite dated. I reserved a premium room with a view of the Parthenon. We could see the Parthenon from our room, but I had expected a view similar to that of the roof. The rooftop bar, pool and restaurant were fantastic. The pool is fairly small, but we weren't there for swimming. Our experience at the rooftop restaurant was the saving grace of this hotel. Our waiter was welcoming and helpful. There are taxis, a tourist bus, the metro (RedLine) right outside the hotel and the rail station nearby.
