Sweet Home Hotel
Ranked #2 of 54 Athens B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Loved the homey feel of this small B&B! Great location, awesome price, excellent service. We were upgraded from standard to superior. I DO recommend going with a superior room because we happened to see a peek of a standard room and it is TINY. This hotel is in easy walking distant to Plaka, Acropolis, Syntagma Square! Excellent breakfast and super nice staff!

Room Tip: Go with the Standard!

Small rooms, poor commercial policy and cash paiement, in spite of a pré authorization on my visa card.
Position like all hotels in Plaka, but poor view in a small and desolated street.
God breakfast, and very clean hotel
Is all that so exceptionnal ?

Our room was very luxurious, we felt like royalty from the moment we got in. It was well cleaned with a lovely view over the Acropolis. The shower area was spotless, with many free toiletries. In the room the amenbtities provided such as a big flat tv, fridge, kettle, wardrobe, desk all are new. We really liked the hotel atmosphere though it is literally in the middle of a busy area and it is a bit hard to find it since you have to look up for the sign.It is on the first floor of a building and you have to carry your luggage up to the reception area. Overall the hotel presentation and service was great. The staff was friendly and very professional and made us feel very welcome! The breakfast had quality products and many local delights. The hotel is close to many sightseeings and the high street called Ermou. Nearby there are many restaurants and bars serving food, local food, coffee and drinks.

Room Tip: ask for a room with Acropolis view, you wont regret it.

A lovely place for a stop over en-route to Ikaria. Room 303 quite small but lovely decor. Window faced inner courtyard and was a little noisy. Beautiful breakfast room and a really excellent breakfast. Highly recommended and close to the Plaka. A lovely staff and made us feel very welcome.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the start of our holiday before flying out to the islands. We absolutely loved it and wished it had been available for our return night in Athens on the way home. The decor was charming, as was the room. Although a little small it had everything you could want and had a lovely calming feel about it. Breakfast was fantastic too, lovely choice of fruit, breads, cereals, yoghurts, pastries, etc. Very enjoyable stay and perfectly located for the sights and sounds of the Plaka district.

Room Tip: I can't remember the number of the room we were in, however it was the last one on the right bef...

It was my first time in this almost brand new hotel. Located in the heart of Athens, Plaka and almost 5 minutes walk from Syntagma Square and the main metro station, this hotel offers an excellent value for money. It is friendly, clean, good sized room and bathroom, comfortable bed, quite location and excellent home cooked breakfast. Only the pillows are all the same size and thickness and a bit on the cheap side. Ovearall an excellent choice either for business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiter room at the rear of the hotel

We spent two nights. My wife's prime test in evaluating any hotel is the level of its
cleanliness. Sweet Home passed the test- it was immaculate. Nice attention to homely detail throughout. The staff was particularly knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Breakfast, good but could be a bit better. I missed the big bowl full of Greek yogurt I found in other Greek hotels. The lady at reception recommended the restaurant opposite the Pan Hotel around the corner, and it was excellent. Avoid the restaurant next door. I would return.

Room Tip: Another reviewer mentioned noise from the street - but I found our front room very quiet
