“Great service, perfect location, and terrace views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014

I stayed 2 nights in a double room, first floor. The room was spacious, clean, soft towels, all toiletries, mini fridge, and my rate included a bottle of wine too. The reception and bar staff were not only nice but helpful and friendly- smiles all around! The terrace view is awesome at sunset and when the lights are on in the Acropolis. And, the bar has a nice mix of drinks that you will enjoy in that setting. The location is without a doubt the best you can find. Just one block away from one of the 2 main subway stations. I did not buy any other transportation ticket in Athens because you can really walk to all attractions -and restaurants- if you normally walk or do moderate hiking. I booked my stay through the hotel site and I found the best rate that way. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have views too if you want to book rooms with a view.

My wife and I loved his hotel the numerous reviews and websites were correct about the value. The Plaka Distirict and Psiri District are easy to navigate and numerous restaurants and stores are nearby, The hotel staff are extremely friendly and helpful in locating points of interest. The rooms are very clean and all fixtures are modern and functional. The rooftop bar is the gem of the hotel as is the bar maid Violeta who made the roof top view very relaxing with quality drinks.
We will stay here again.

We stayed at Attalos 18 months ago after all our Greek friends in Kos recommended it. This time we hadn't pre booked, we just turned up has we had 18 hours to wait for our flight. Room everything brilliant. Clean, quiet, staff all very helpful. Early calls no problem. Can't fault the place at all.

Room Tip: Sorry no pool clicked by mistake ! You can see the Acropolis from balconies on floor 6 beautiful esp...

perfect location, comfortable rooms with good beds, incredibly friendly staff (from the management to the reception to the cleaning ladies). it's a big hotel, but thanks to the staff's friendliness it feels intimate and welcoming. the interior design does not have the charm of a boutique hotel, but the rooms are more than comfortable, ultra clean and pleasant enough. really good price. been going for years. i've been in other hotels in athens charging twice the price with no added value. i highly recommend Attalos hotel.

Room Tip: if you're sensitive to noise, ask for a room away from the elevator and away from the street

Attalos is a great choice for the budget-minded traveler who wants to be smack dab in the middle of things. The hotel is located about two-three blocks from the Monasteraki Metro stop - if you take the train from the airport (only 8 euro one-way), you have only a short jog to the hotel entrance. The neighborhood is going through a gentrification - quite a mix of second-hand clothing stores, banks, and upscale patisseries. Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout. My room (third floor) was clean and a bit spartan, but the bed was comfortable and the bathroom facilities fine. The noise level can be a little loud at times - I could hear every word spoken by the couple across the hall as they tried to find their room key. The breakfast buffet was good, nothing special - primarily cold fruits, local pastries, and the like, for 8 euro per day (the extra charge was clear from the start). Probably the greatest benefit of staying at Attalos is its location - the Monasteraki Metro is a major hub for the local transit lines, and the Plaka, Acropolis, flea market, and other attractions are just a short walk, so no need to get a cab at any time, unless you are not used to walking. Oh, and the rooftop bar is excellent - fantastic view of the Acropolis at night, friendly staff, and a wide variety of drinks. I'd definitely stay at Attalos on my next trip to Athens.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are probably quietest, away from the elevators

This hotel is inexpensive and provides you with a good centralized location to get to all the major attractions. It's also cheap for getting to and from the airport since it's right off the subway line. The breakfast provided at €8/person is delicious and filling. The outside noise can be a bit much if you're in a lower floor like we were.

Attalos is a good choice for the budget minded traveler. Could not be closer to the Monastiraki Metro stop on Line 3. So getting to the hotel from the airport (8 Euro for one, 14 Euro for 2) was a breeze.
Check-in was efficient. They have a glass jar with small glasses on the reception desk. My wife took a drink expecting water but it is a clear liquor, this was a fun surprise! The room was adequate in size. A bit threadbare but clean. We paid for a room with a view and got one but it was on floor 2 and our view of the Acropolis was obscured by tree limbs. Live and learn. As other reviewers have pointed out the view from the rooftop bar in the evening was amazing and the highlight of this hotel. There is an open area and a sheltered area on the roof so even in bad weather it is worth a visit before or after going out for dinner. The drink prices were very reasonable and when combined with the view it's really nice. We looked at the breakfast offerings and did not think it was worth the 8 Euro price. As you walk out of the lobby to the street, turn left and there is a very good bakery with coffee almost next door. In the evening if you want to check out the bar scene in Psiri, take a left out the door and first right to get there.
All in all, if you are looking for luxury, look elsewhere. But if location and value are your priorities Attalos delivers with the bonus of the rooftop bar with a five star view.

Room Tip: If you paid for a room with a view get on the highest possible floor.
