Athens Cypria Hotel
Ranked #62 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed 17 August 2014

The location of Cypria Hotel is really good, close to Syntagma Square and Ermou Street. Yet the hotel is in need of renovation. The room with 80's look smells a bit and is quite run down. Breakfast is mediocre or basic. Hotel staff is sufficiently helpful upon request.

A few steps from Syntagma square, surrounded by cafés shops , steps from emrou street and the Plaka area . The rooms were clean, the concierge couldn't be more helpful and the breakfast was ok . I'll definitely go back . Value for money it's a winner .

Great location in the center, rich buffet breakfast, good cleaning and loved the fact that they change your towels daily! Overall it was a good 3 star hotel but needs to pay more attention to detail, especially regarding the building structure and painting since it is very old and seems a bit neglected. I would stay there again if i get the chance!

The Athens Cypria Hotel is a no frills affair. It is priced absolutely right, and at the end of your stay, you wouldn't be fussed about the minimal amenities or the quality of the cottons.

Located in the vicinity of the Syntagma square, the place is at a stone's throw from the Metro Station. The Hop-On Hop-Off tour starts from the square, and is a must for first time visitors. It is right at the heart of the shopping streets, and you would find a lot of hustle and bustle. It is a happening place, I must say - there were street singers, there was a Che Guevara Club having its meetings on the road and then, there were little crowds gathered to watch the FIFA World Cup Finals at the eateries around.

What you don't have is the view of the Acropolis from the room or hotel- something that a lot of other hotels brag about, and something you may miss having at your breakfast table. Coming to breakfast, it is quite the standard spread and nothing to write home about. The dining area is a little too crammed, but might also have been busier than usual due to peak season.

The Athens Cypria is a decent hotel and good value for money on all fronts, including the service. They were prompt with the formalities and helpful with our requests for Breakfast Parcels when needed for an early start to the day.

All in all, a good option as a Budget Hotel.

We spent two nights here in August, travelled by train from the airport to Syntagma station and found it very easily. Staff were welcoming, location great, breakfast very good and wi-fi strong. Only downside was a very hard bed. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel's location is very close to all central attractions. Rooms are OK.

I had a knee injury before checking in to the hotel and I occasionally needed ice as a part of my treatment. When I called the reception to request ice they directed me to the bar where I had to explain my issue again to the female bar employee. Now's the funny part, the lady actually told me that she was busy and couldn't provide me with ice and that I could come to the bar and take the ice myself. When I told her about my condition she said yes...

A few minutes later she came to the room, brought me a cup filled with ice to serve with drinks. I asked for 2 bags of ice which was very easy to procure, of course if she had listened carefully what I had to say in the first place. Furthermore, I didn't find the staff very charming in general. We were not greeted with smiling faces instead some standard procedure and standard talking. We were provided with drink tickets as a courtesy of the hotel but another lady in the bar asked us to leave the tables so that she could clean the place... Wasn't she suppose to wait until we finish enjoying our drinks?

I guess you can always find a better place to stay than Athens Cypria. That's all I have to say. I loved Athens, I'll definitely be back, but not to Athens Cypria, they missed that chance.
