“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

This hotel is located in a good spot for walking to all the ancient sites of Athens. It was also near lots of shopping. We had a room on the 6th floor and had a nice view of the Acropolis from our balcony - especially beautiful at night. We sat in the rooftop bar one evening to enjoy the view. The breakfast was typical continental, but with plenty options available to provide a good meal to start the day. Unfortunately, there was a party held on the roof of the building across the street with loud music blaring until 3 or 4 in the morning one night. There was no way to block out the noise & sleep was near impossible.

Room Tip: If you want a view, ask for a room with one. But be aware that if you will be there on a Friday or S...

Dear guest
Thank you for choosing Attalos hotel during your stay in Athens and your review on TripAdvisor.
We are glad to read that you enjoyed location of the hotel , facilities and view.
Concerning the noise from the bar close by ,we are sorry that they interrupt your rest and if we were aware of the noise we would have called the police and the noise would be reduced right away, as bars should be careful with the noise after midnight.
We hope to be able to welcome you in our hotel another time in the future !

The arrival to Attalos Hotel in Athens did not start well at all, as we booked this hotel only because it advertised parking facilities.Well, it does not have parking onsite.They have a deal with a car parking building for 9.50 euros / 24 hrs. We arrived on a Sunday so the parking was not opened. It was a bit stressful having to find a park late at night in a city new to us.
However it was so much easier thanks to Sakis working at the hotel reception. He went into a lot of effort to make sure that our car was parked in a safe place. Thank you Sakis!!
The hotel breakfast and room comfort and facilities are okay.
The roof terrace bar is worth a visit as it has stunning views of the Akropolis.
However the highlight of this hotel is the staff and the location. It is only few minutes walk from Plaka and Akropolis. Perhaps one of the best located hotels where to stay in Athens.

Dear guest
Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor.
We are sorry to hear about the misunderstanding with parking facilities, we do not have any and the best option is the close by parking. It is true on Sunday it is a little difficult for the car, but we there is a 24-7 operating parking close to the hotel. However we are glad to read about our staff being helpful with the situation. Moreover, we are happy to read that you enjoyed location of the hotel , cleanliness , staff and view.
We hope to be able to welcome you in our hotel another time in the future!

You can't book a cheap room and then complain its not a 4 star hotel. We paid $75 a night and had a balcony and a view of the Parthenon. It is walking distance to many sights. There are many restaurants and shops nearby and one block from the metro station. I don't plan to go back to Athens but if I do I will be staying here.

Room Tip: Get the balcony room. It will be worth it.

Very large double bed and super comfortable. Clean room with modern bathroom. Friendly staff, pleasant roof top bar with view of the Acropolis. Minutes from the action of Monesteri. All positive, would be my first choice for a future stay.

My fiance and I stayed here in September 2013. Hotel Attalos has helpful staff that man the reception desk 24/7, an awesome location just a short walk from Monastiraki Metro station, and clean rooms.
We paid a bit extra for a room with a balcony - Be mindful that this doesn't offer a full view of the Acropolis. There is a beautiful view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar/restaurant.
The breakfast (not included) is a typical European breakfast, very good.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for two nights in Oct 2013. Our room was on the second floor. We didn't sleep either night because it was so noisy. The first night was a Saturday night. A couple was talking loudly in their room and it echoed down the hallway. They were drunk and talked for hours. The walls are very thin. The area is full of young people and a lot of people partying. There were lots of people talking outside our window (bars) and lots of traffic. The room was very clean and I was impressed with the size of the bathroom shower. The bedspread was dated from 1970 or somewhere around that time. The beds were single beds and lumpy. The pillows were nice and soft. The staff was amazingly nice and spoke very good English. They even arranged a tour to Delphi for us. The breakfast was minimal, but sufficient and affordable. The location to the subway and Market Street was great. I would not recommend this hotel. I left very tired and had a full day of travel back to the U.S.

Thank you foryour review on TripAdvisor.
We are glad to read that you enjoyed location of the hotel , cleanliness and staff.
Concerning the noise from other guests ,we are sorry that they interrupt your rest and if we were aware of the noise we would ask the guests to respect sleeping hours. As for the noise from outside , there are quieter rooms in the hotel and we would offer you a quieter room if you had informed us.
We try constanly to improve our rooms and facilities,and as it is true the building is old , furniture is since 2004, bed covers and curtains were changed 2 years ago , while sheets and towels are changed every few months.
We are sorry that our hotel did not fulfilled your ecpectations and we hope to be able to welcome you in our hotel another time in the future so you can enjoy a better stay.

My travelling companion and I stayed at this hotel for three consecutive nights, then stored some luggage for three nights before returning to Athens for one more night. This is an efficiently run hotel in a handy location to Monastiraki Station and the Plaka. Also, the Central Market is nearby and well worth a look or to buy some fresh produce. The rooftop bar was an added bonus as you can have a drink and gaze upon the magnificent Acropolis lit up at night. If catching the train to the airport, tickets from the station are slightly cheaper if buying two or more. Just as an added note: if you are catching a taxi from the KTEL bus Terminal A in Kiffissou Street to your hotel, be aware there will be an extra charge for luggage.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a view of the Acropolis from the room balcony.
