“On the steps of Syntagma”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Our understanding is that this hotel is good value for money compared to other offerings in the centre of Athens, but it was not a 5 star establishment in our opinion.

The hotel is ideally located next to Syntama Square and offers a really good base the explore ancient Athens from. The streets of Plaka and Monistraki, the Acropollis musuem and the Acropollis site all was within easy walking distance for us as a family with boys aged 13 and 16.

The beautiful decor in our room did match the photo's on bookings.com, but the decor to the corridors and lift lobbies were a bit old fashioned. There is no roof top cafe or viewing area - the illusion is created on the advertisement material that there is such an area on the roof of the Athens Plaza hotel.

WiFi was only available close to reception lobby and cocktail bar.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for taking the time to share with us your comments about our hotel. It was a pleasure to read you were satisfied with our unique location. Regarding our Acropolis veranda view on the top floor, it is rented only for private events & we really don’t advertise it as an accessible, open space to all Guests. Spacious Rooms & Luxury Suites facing the Acropolis are available to Guests upon reservation. Regarding Wi-Fi access, please be advised that there is a free Wi-Fi use in all our Suites & Deluxe rooms as well as in public spaces. We look forward to welcoming you back at the N.J.V. Athens Plaza Hotel in the near future!
Yours sincerely,

We stayed for 3 days in Athens in NJV Athens Plaza and we were satisfied with the hotel. I can't really call it a stay, because literally we were out for almost 12h(walking, sightseeing, shopping). We were able only to have a breakfast and to sleep, which were great. A good various breakfast food and a good cosy bed!
The hotel is good located, you have everything around you!
The only little problem was(most probably because of carpets) the smell of cigarettes in the corridors, but it's not that remarkable.
The pity for me was to not have a rooftop restaurant/bar, knowing that the Acropolis is seen from every building in Athens.

The hotel is clean, the food is good and the service friendly. We were surprised to discover that wifi wasn't available for free, but for a fee per device per 24 hours. It got rather pricey so we ended up without.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They were available to help at the drop of a hat, which was wonderful.

Location makes up for every other complain one may have depending on what one is used to in a hotel. Close to hop on hop off stop, Plaka, Acropolis, Monastiraki via Ermou Street.
Not the best of rooms, nor the swankiest of rooms. Age shows at some places but not in an offending way or off-putting way.
The breakfast spread is really good. I have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world and I would still rate the break fast spread as good. Not very fancily laid out, nor an overwhelming no. of items but covers most categories one would want and offers good quality.
Also, airport - hotel travel is extremely convenient via Express 95 bus. Almost like taxi but only at 5Euro per person as compared to Euro35 for a taxi. Takes almost an hour to reach from the airport.
Go for an early morning walk in the national garden and walk up to the Panathenaic Stadium, Zappeion, Temple of Zeus and while returning see the change of guards (left at 7am and saw the change of guards at 8am to be in hotel by 8.10am)- nice pleasant walk (we were there in the most hottest period)

Room Tip: We were on the top most floor with no view as we booked 4/5 days prior to travel. if you are able to...

I booked a basic room and was pleasantly surprised. I had a view of Syntagma Square and Parliament House, unfortunately not on a high enough floor for a view to the Acropolis, but I was very happy with what I received. The room was very well appointed and the bathroom was spacious with a good shower head. The bed was king size and so perfectly comfortable with great pillows. I would recommend this hotel and found it to be good value for money.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor, if possible, for a view to the Acropolis.

We have stayed once again here. We had a superior room and a courtyard room and both were excellent. This hotel is getting better each time we visit it. Their greater asset is their personnel. They are always very polite and helpful. They have arranged as a late check out without any difficulties since we had small children with us.

The hotel and rooms are very clean. The breakfast is excellent and of high quality. The amenities of the rooms are top. The location is second to none, as you are in the middle of Syntagma Square.

The only thing missing is free wi-fi in the rooms.

Although I am Member to a few of the most prestigious Hotel Chains, myself and my wife we always choose NVJ Athens Plaza for our frequent stays in Athens for the last 25 years or so.
This is not only because of the very central location of this Hotel ( Syntagma ), but for the exceptionally high level of professionalism and always very warm and friendly service of their staff. The rooms are very comfortable and clean and the price very attractive for such a nice Hotel. I should most definitely recommend this Hotel. Excellent !!!
