Reviewed 20 June 2010

Just got back from a couple week trip to Greece. Athens was our central location between our side trips to the country. We stayed here multiple times. Room are somewhat small, but nice. Very solid A/C. If you're bring a laptop for Wifi ask for a lower floor and it's good. Great location. 5 minute or less walk from Monastiraki square and all sorts of food and shopping.

Now, the best part about the place is the rooftop bar. Hands down. Looks right up at the Parthenon. Good prices and nice bartenders. Even if you don't stay here you should still find the place at night and go up to have a drink.

The rest of the staff was nice as well. For the price comparitively to what's around it unless you're looking to spend a lot of money you should definitely stay here.

The Hotel Attalos is a fabulous little gem in central Athens, has everything you could possibly need and right on the doorstep of all the sights, rooms all have a view of the Parthenon and the roof top bar is fabulous.

Stayed here with family plus significant others. Rooms like all European hotels in this class were small but very clean. Beds fine. Location fantastic - Metro nearby and walk to all of the Athens attractions with nice view of Acropolis from room balconies. Staff extremely helpful with directions and recommendations. Central market - very interesting a few blocks away. Many restaurants. Some street noise in balcony rooms but views worth it.

Although the street is a little seedy, the location is great. Easy access from the metro. Close to the sights, markets and lots of good and cheap restaurants. (I was surprised how cheap the food was in Athens.)
You stay here for the rooftop bar, the view of the acropolis is fantastic.
Very affordable.
The rooms are pretty shabby, but that was expected for the price. Athens parties all night long so it was pretty loud in the room as well.

Good for a quick budget stop over in Athens.

I went in expecting this to be a moderate hotel, not a 5 star and my expectations were met. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were nice. I stayed on the 4th floor the first time I was there and then after returning from the islands stayed on the 1st floor for two nights before leaving Greece. The rooms/bathrooms were clean and the sheets and pillows were actually comfortable (something I didn't find in a few 4 and 5 star hotels I stayed at on the islands). The hotel has a great view from the rooftop of the Acropolis and has everything you need within walking distance. It is right near Monastaraki so you just take the metro from the airport (6 Euros each or 2 for 10Euros). The metro can get you anywhere you want to be basically so I highly recommend it. The hotel is also very close to the flea markets/small shops and two stops from the Acropolis on the metro. It is mentioned in many books and reviews and I can see why, it is a nice find and a great price (87 Euros a night when we stayed).

We enjoyed our 2 stays at Attalos Hotel, before and after our island hopping. Our first 2 nights were spent on the 5th floor with a good view of the Acropolis. We had asked for a non smoking room but didn't get it, however the location of the room made up for that. Our last night, post the island hopping was on the first floor with a partial view of the Acropolis and was of a lower standad than the first in terms of decor plus was just 2 twin beds pushed together. We didn't mind as it was only 1 night and was still very clean and there was little street noise even though only 1 floor up.

This hotel was expensive for the standard it was compared to the other cities we stayed in on this trip - Milan and Rome - however was a good price compared to other Athens hotels.

Two things make this hotel a great place to stay: The staff and the rooftop bar. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar is sensational...a long cool drink at the end of a long hot day viewing the parthenon as the sun goes down is just wonderful. Drinks were reasonably priced too. Added to this, the hotel is very close to Monastiraki metro station for easy, cheap access to the airport or port with luggage.

The only real negatives are the area it is in - surrounded by mostly hardware store - but is a short easy walk to restaurants and cafes so not a major problem to us. We felt very safe walking around at night. Secondly, the cost for the standard of room was high however as I stated, Athens seemed to be a more expensive city to stay in.

Overall we were very happy with our choice. I would certainly consider staying here again.

Small hotel, very clean, and just a few minutes walk to the Acropolis. Not modern, but basic. Thre is an elevator, which is a plus. We were pretty much out all day, but it was more than suitable for sleeping and would recommend this hotel. The staff is very accomodating. Ask for a balcony room when you book and on a floor that is higher up. We loved this area of Athens, also. Close to the market - great place to eat lunch - very inexpensive and one sees things in the meat market one has never seen before.
Walking distance to the flea market, which we loved and sauntered down into it every day we were there. We found good deals there and great little places to eat.
The roof garden is wonderful; with great views of the City and the Acropolis - and at night it is breathtaking as it is lit up. A bustling area during the day, we loved it very much!
