Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Great location, great service, clean, quiet, AC, everything we wanted!
We would definitely book the same hotel if we return to Athens.
They even arranged early breakfast for us at 6am since we had to depart very early.
Great value for money!

Stayed: July 2014

We have stayed at this hotel twice now, and have been extremely pleased with our experiences at Acropolis View Hotel. The hotel and rooms are very nice, well kept, and impeccably clean. While rooms are on the small side, they offer everything you would need including AC, a fridge, hair dryer, nice bathroom, closet, etc. The hotel definitely exudes some old world Grecian charm, with marble and crown molding- very endearing. We found the staff to be extremely kind and accommodating, and the complimentary breakfast is quite extensive and delicious. While the hotel itself is great, the best thing about this hotel is the location. I do not believe that there could be a better location in all of Athens. You are right in the middle of an adorable neighborhood, a few blocks from Plaka, and 1 block from the Acropolis pedestrian walkway. However, the hotel is on a quiet side street, so while you are virtually seconds way from the Acropolis, you are also in a quiet and peaceful spot. The rooftop balcony is breathtaking. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough.

We were a group of six people, one of them being a toddler, going to the capital city of Greece where at least 1/3 of the Greek population lives. And wanting to see what all other tourists want to see, we were worried about accessibility and distances. And honestly, we were hoping to stay in the Plaka. The number of people and amount of noise was a concern.

Enter Acropolis View. It is situated right next to the Acropolis entrance, Acropolis Museum, pedestrian streets. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the Plaka. It is in a residential, quiet neighborhood. The hotel itself was clean, the staff was extremely helpful, and the rooftop terrace was incredible. Our room was a little small, but served its purpose. It had a nice bathroom and a refrigerator. We also were travelling with a toddler and they provided a nice baby cot. The breakfast was pretty good. The hotel sold all sorts of drinks and very reasonable prices, so you don't have to search for an open market. However, within a maximum 5 minute walk, there were 3 markets of various sizes just in case you were looking for something specific. We stayed 4 nights, and we couldn't have asked for a nicer time. Can't say enough about the rooftop; we bought a bottle of wine every night and watched the sun go down and the Parthenon light up.

This hotel should be on your short list if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel. We found it easy to get around the whole tourist area, and the hotel and its staff made our stay very pleasant!

Room Tip: You don't need to stay in the rooms with the view of the acropolis, the rooftop is sooo much bet...

Over the course of the last ten years, we would visit Athens from the coastal villages of the Pelopponese, usually to see a concert or ten , or just to appreciate the splendours of that lovely Capitol. Our koumbaros ( best man) being in the tourist business, recommended The Acropolis View hotel, omg, how bang on right he was.Access, by Metro, , would you believe, stop Acropolis.but it's not far from Syndagma Sq.. Arriving by taxi you have the Acropolis , with the splendid Parthenon in your sight, day and night, then your'e suddenly at reception of this delightful hotel.Into the compact foyer, ultra efficient staff, of course. Elevator , not the largest in the world, but it always seems to work! Hastily drop off suitcase, then up to the roof terrace for the crowning glory of this hotel.Yes, you feel if you just stretch a hand a tiny bit further can touch the Acropolis, MAGIC+++! How you spend you time is up to you, obviously, but ,we, make every waking second count.Having found a delightful taverna in Plaka (?) , never quite certain where Plaka starts or finishes!, but our present favourite place is " God's Kitchen , very adjacent to the new wonderful Acropolis museum, a stifado to die for,often frantically lively, but your'e never forgotten, splendid service!

Room Tip: Book early ,it's very,very popular.

Acropolis View offers good value for money in a likeable area of Athens. During my first visit to Athens I stayed in the heart of the Plaka district. AVH is perhaps a ten min walk to the Acropolis Museum in a much quieter neighbourhoood, but as a result it offers far better value for money. Don't miss the rooftop views either!

Rooms are clean and modern - very comfortable.

There is one young gentleman who works at reception in the evenings - he's pretty icy-cold and doesn't seem to really want to help out. That aside, everyone else was friendly.

I returned to this hotel, after having stayed there in 2008, as well. The hotel's exterior is unimpressive, as is the street it's on - but the lobby, dining area are nice. The rooms are spartan, but clean. The charm of this hotel is it's proximity to the Acropolis (a block away!!) and the fantastic rooftop deck, which looks onto the Parthenon & the Odeon of Herodes Atticus (ancient theatre). The Parthenon is beautifully litt at night, and the view from the rooftop of this and the Acropolis is magical. Bring up a bottle of wine and enjoy the breeze and the unparalleled view. My only suggestion for the hotel is to spend some time cleaning the sidewalks around the hotel, as there are obviously several dogs and cats in the area.
