“Excellent hotel close to Plakka, Acropolis and Acropolis Metro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

Great little hotel with excellent location right next to the plakka, acropolis metro station, and the Acropolis. It is also in walking distance (or short metro ride) of all of Athens attractions. The staff were friendly and very helpful making our stay even more enjoyable. In particular, Petros was amazing and recommended really special places for us to go including what became our favourite bar and also restaurant in Athens! Ask him about the rooftop bars! They even provided breakfast! I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel and the staff. Thank you for an enjoyable stay, we will be back!

Close to the tourist area of Athens. Wonderful location on a side street. Walking to everything, clean, nice breakfast, very helpful desk staff. Computer area needed a light beside the computer and lobby chairs could be improved. All in all, if I return to Athens, I will stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ours was facing side street and toward the rear of the floor. Very quiet. A/C was adequate but hea...

Found this to be an excellent base very close to Plaka, Acropolis and all the cafes restaurants etc. Also just a couple of minutes from Acropolis Metro station. Efficient friendly service, nice rooms and a great price for its location. Would recommend.

My wife and I came to Athens as the first leg of our honeymoon (the 2nd being Santorini). We wanted to be close to the heart of Athens as we were only staying 2 nights and did not want to have to go far walking to all the sights considering it was late July and quite hot during that time. We couldn't have asked for a better location than the Parthenon Hotel. Right up the block you are on the main street to everything. Turn left and go straight to the Acropolis (3-5 min walk), turn right and you are at the Temple of Zeus (5-7 mins), or continue right down to Plaka (the main shopping area) within 2-3 mins. The concierge found out it was our Honeymoon and upgraded us to the top floor (complete with a huge balcony with a view of the Acropolis). A bottle of wine was also delivered to our room. The staff was all very friendly, they cleaned our room early (as opposed to late afternoon like at some hotels I've been at). Breakfast was included and had much more than a traditional European continental breakfast. There was an extensive buffet style menu of food, including traditional greek items like Yogurt (with honey or fruit preservatives), olives, breads, etc. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Athens.

This was our second stay in Athens and we have come back to the Aerotel Parthenon. It is very conveniently placed for the main tourist area, Plaka, and within walking distance of the Parthenon and the Syntagma Square. The Metro station is also very close. The breakfasts were good with a wide choice and Reception were very helpful. Our room was a bit small, but adequate for the three nights that we were staying. If we return to Athens, we will probably choose to stay here again.

First of all, we were very impressed that we could get a decent hotel in this location for this price. The Airotel Parthenon is about a five minute (at the most) walk from the Acropolis and literally right around the corner from a metro station. It’s a bit old, but that should be expected in Athens. The hotel is clean, safe, the staff extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast (included in our room rate) is very good. It is on the edge of Plaka, so there are tons of fantastic restaurants in very close walking distance. The Temple of Zeus is about a 10 minute walk as well, so you cannot ask for a better location in Athens. It’s not fancy, but what qualifies this hotel for the fourth star is price and location. If we were to visit Athens again, we would definitely stay here.

Hotel was very dirty. The shower curtains have not been changed for years, dark and dirty. There as mold around the bathtub in the washroom. The bedsheets did not fit the bed, so it left half of the bed exposed half of the times.
The service of the staff was great, and location was central.
