“from Terrific to Tolerable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2010

We stayed here previously in 2006 and it was terrific. Unfortunately upkeep is not something thats been a strong point. We requested a larger superior double. While certainly not terrible, the room had a mild smoky stench coming from the carpet. The mattress on the bed definitely needed replacing, the in room safe did not operate, the shower curtain was not long enough to prevent water from flowing onto the floor, and the toilet seat was exceptionally flimsy for what is suppose to be a 4 star establishment. On the plus side, it's a great location for walking to Kolonaki, Plaka and also to the metro. The Staff are very attentive and helpful and the breakfast very fresh with a good selection. We may still go back but we're hoping a little refurbishment will take place first. At such a great charming location, it be a shame to lose prospective guests due to some simple attention to detail and a little re-investing!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2010

The staff is most accommodating, courteous and helpful and the location is superb, especially for shopping in the Ermou and Kolonaki area. It's actually located on a pedestrian street, so taxi drivers cannot drop you off directly in front, some even do not know exactly where it is.

The room is not huge yet it is comfortable, but the bathroom is of generous size although the floor is constantly wet from an ineffective shower curtain. In addition, the corridor outside the room smelled badly. My fellow travellers were not satisfied by the breakfast or its serving times. Also, the lack of free wifi for such a hotel is a disappointment.

I must admit I expected more from a 4 star hotel. There are other hotels in central Athens offering the same price but better quality. I would not wish to use the particular hotel for anything other than a one-night stopover.

This hotel is within 2 blocks of Syntagma Square, on a pedestrian street. There are several jumping cafes and restaurants in front of the hotel, so rooms on the front can be a bit noisy in the evening. Rooms are a good size and comfortable. The included breakfast is excellent. Rooms are reasonably priced, especially for a central location in Athens.

We booked this hotel only a day before arriving in Athens, and we consider ourselves lucky. The location is wonderful, just a few minutes to a metro station, and the metro is the best way to get around in Athens. It is a great advantage that the hotel is on a side street, so it's very quiet for Athens, considering it is so central. The room is not huge, but the bathroom is of generous size. The breakfast was fine. Just what we wanted for a quick stay in Athens.

Stayed July 2009, travelled with family

The accomodations are comfortable though not luxury. The staff is most accomodating. The location is superb. I have booked reservations for my next trip to Greece in May. I am eagerly awaiting hearing about my request, so I can contact them by return e-mail. You see, I am Electronically ChallengedI have frequently stayed at the Lycabette Hotel on my visits to Greece for the past 20 plus years.The accomodations are adequate. The staff extremely accomodating, the location is perfect, and all this has made my visits to Greece most pleasurable.This time round I am being joined by relatives for the first week and then 4 friends plan to join me so we can visit the archaeological sitesI am truly looking foward to another most pleasurable experience at the Lycabette Hotel.
