“Awful and unfriendly staff”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Just stayed there and the rooms smelled of smoke although we were allegedly given a non-smoking room - hmmm..then why was there an ashtray in the room. Front desk was unfriendly and upon arrival charged us extra for another adult - never heard of this policy. Usually the same rate for one or 2 adults if sharing one bed.
Carpets unclean.

Breakfast was fine.
Noisy area.
Would not recommend. The worst of 4 hotels in Greece. Others were nice.

We Only spent there one Night But it was a very good one. The Room was Big and very Clean, Also the Bathroom was clean. The Breakfast was Amazing, The location of the Hotel is what makes it Awesome it's only a 2 minute Walk from Syntagma Square Metro Station which is one of the popular Metro Stations in Athens. Also the Hotel was surrounded with Restaurants and Shops for Shopping. The only thing that wants to be improved is the speed of the internet it was a bit slow but other than that it was Excellent.

The hotel is located in one of the best shopping and cafes areas in Athens... on the high end shopping street, and within walking distance from the restaurant and coffee shops streets...

The rooms are small and very basic and can be at little cost improved (as well as the bathrooms)... free internet but no complementary water.

People at the reception are very helpful.

Price is v good givn the location.

A small boutique hotel very conveniently place in Athens close to Syntagma square and 2mn walk from the metro station and bus terminal ti. The hotel would need a bit of renovation (carpets, painting, furnitures, bathrooms ...), as the last renovation is at least 15 years old, but it is clean and for the price, it is a good value.
Hotel is very quite, which is not always the case in Athens
Breakfast is limited but fine (cheese, ham, honey, different sorts of bread, yoghurt ...)
We recommand the place for a short stay in Athens

Stayex at athens lycabettus for 3 nights, with our 2 kids. The service was SUPERB, the rooms clean and the area incredible. We walked everywhere. The shopping was great and the open tour buses were right at the main square.
I would def stay there again

This small boutique hotel is centrally located within walking distance of most everything a visitor to Athens will want to see and visit. The rooms are clean, modern, and most have balconies and at just 90-100 euros/night, a great value that also includes a very good and plentiful breakfast. There is a very nice sidewalk cafe attached to the hotel as well as a restaurant, although we did not eat there. Because it is located on a pedestrian walkway between 2 small streets most taxi drivers are not that familiar with it. But the rooms are very quiet for the same reason. But you must inform your driver that it is not the St. George Lycabettus that you want.
