“Staff & Location were excellent”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Loved the location, the morning buffet and most of all the staff. I left my jewelry in the room safe and called the hotel the next day. The staff immediately ran up to the room, retrieved by jewelry bag with jewelry in it and kept it safe until I was back home to make the necessary arrangements to have it shipped back. It arrived home safe and sound. The rooms were clean and large enough with a small balcony to have some fresh air. The location was fantastic, close to everything: museums, restaurants, subway, the Parthenon, the acropolis, etc. etc... If we are lucky enough to return to Athens we will definitely stay there again. Do check the rates as they are all over the place on the various internet sites.

We stayed in this hotel mid of October for a 2-nights lay-over in Athens. They gave us a room on the 5th floor with a balcony of almost the size of the actual room! (Ask for room on this floor - it's worth it).
The room was perfectly cleaned and prepared and all the staff we met was very friendly and always helpful. Breakfast has a above average sized buffet and the hotel offers free wireless internet in the rooms and public areas.

The location of the hotel is just perfect, having Acropolis, the new Acropolis Museum and beautiful small streets packed with small restaurants, shops and street musicians literally in front of the door. Walking to Monastiraki Square takes less than 15 min and Taxis are easily available.

We definitely would recommend this hotel to everyone who is looking for a nice, cheap boutique hotel in a very attractive area of Athens.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 5th floor have huge balconies (although no attractive view)

Our 3 nite stay is consistent with other comments. The location is excellent for visiting Acropolis Museum, Acrpolis, walking around Plaka; it is on a shaded small street with much less traffic than abounds in Athens. We were moved here after complaining about another hotel. Athens seems to over rate the stars on its hotels. This is closer to a 3 star than 4 for US standards, because of the mould present in our bathroom as well and hole in door of bathroom. Nevertheless, it is clean, nice linen, bedspreads, furniture., and a whole lot better than the so- called three star I had picked out on Internet that turned out to be terrible. The service is excellent and we appreciated the suggestions for dinner. Do go to Psarros for dinner- this was best atmosphere and food of our trip and was recommended by hotel. Very walkable from hotel.
The breakfast buffet was plentiful. Staff very helpful. There are large public spaces on first floor, rooms adequate size. We especially appreciated small balcony in our room.

Room Tip: We enjoyed room with balcony- the hotel is embedded in a 6 story apartment building residential neig...

What makes this hotel so special is the proximity to the centre of town - in particular the Acropolis Museum. It is also only about 200m from the Akropolis metro station which meant it was super easy to get out to the airport (about 50 mins - make sure you time it right though, as the trains only run to the airport every 30 mins, from Syndagma). The photos on the hotel website make it look a LOT more glam than it is, as it is actually a bit grubby round the edges! The painted part of my bathroom wall (ie. above the tiles but below the ceiling) was all mouldy and it is a bit noisy as it is in a residential street and there were generally quite a few people clattering around. Didn't bother me as I wear ear plugs. Dinner (we had a group meal) was almost dauntingly large in terms of portion sizes, and was average/good rather than fantastic. However, the location is very good, the service was really sweet and helpful - as it was across Greece and I would recommend it for someone on a budget. I stayed on a group tour so didn't get to choose the location but I gather it is a big favourite with groups as its location is so good. It may also be more reasonably priced than the other hotels on my trip so I shouldn't ungenerously compare apples with pears. Rooms were a bit small but were still fine. To its credit it was the only one of our 5 hotels to have a kettle, tea, coffee and cups in the room - yay! If I come back with my husband I shall try for the Grande Bretagne!

It is excellent place to stay if you want to explore the perfection of Acropolis and one of most beautiful buildings ever erected – The Parthenon. The Hotel with the same name is close to Dionysius boulevard – straight way to Acropolis. You may go directly to Propylaea along the boulevard, casting a glance at local paintings and listening ‘pavement’ instrumentalists. The other way guides you through archeological site by Dionysius theatre - the first theatre in the world – and the entrance to the site is in a minute walk from Hotel door.
Being close to the attractions, just steps from Plaka’s restaurants and shops, the Hotel overlooks very quiet street and your balcony door may stay open during the night. Room was clean, with good bathroom and all necessary stuff, including safety box. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was decent though it is continental: don’t expect over easy eggs or fresh juice.
You may experience problems if arriving by your own car: the street is narrow, one-way, and almost impossible to park.

My wife and I spent three nights in the Airotel Parthonen Hotel in October 2013 and were very satisfied with the experience. Expectations do need to be managed because despite the star rating it doesn't come close to a 4 star hotel by UK standards. Nevertheless, neither do the prices and if you accept it as essentially being a budget hotel it offers very good value for money.

The best aspect of the hotel is its central location, just a 3 or 4 minute walk from one of the entrances to the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum and moments away from a lively pedestrianised street with plenty of restaurant options. It's also within no more than a 15 minute walk of pretty much all the other main sites of classical Athens in the old town area including the Roman Agora and the Ancient Agora, the 1896 Olympic Stadium, the Temple of Zeus as well as Plaka and Syntagma Square. The Acropolis Metro station is also very close by for access to and from the airport (the journey door to door takes about an hour). The hotel is located down a side street which means that there are no views to speak of but it is also quiet. It might be worth taking a torch as the street lighting in the area is very poor indeed.

Other than that, the decor and facilities are a touch on the dated side but the rooms are clean, of a decent size and perfectly adequate. The staff were friendly and the breakfast buffet offered plenty of choice though it was rather uninspiring in terms of quality (and I'm no foodie). Overall for the price we were pleased with our choice and would certainly consider staying here again if we were to return to Athens.

Brilliant location. Near to all amenities and sights within walking distance. Rooms clean and staff friendly. Walking distance to Acropoli metro station as well. Breakfast decent spread of Greek , English and continental items.

Take the metro from the airport to syntagma station and then change trains to Acropolis which is the next station from syntagma.
