Sweet Home Hotel
Ranked #2 of 55 Athens B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This charming little hotel is located in a narrow side street lined with restaurant tables, just off a larger boulevard with restaurants and shops and is a short walk to Syntagma or Monastiraki metro stations. The decor of our room was pleasing, with pretty wood floors, a neo-baroque chandelier, and high ceilings. The room was quite small, as was the bathroom, but fine for a short stay. Though there was a side table right in front of the bathroom door that gave me a pretty good bruise when I smashed into it in the dark! Our room had a tiny balcony, overlooking the street and a vacant lot with a cat and kittens in it. No view of course, but if you hang a right out the front door, there's a hotel with a rooftop bar right at the end of the street with a fantastic Acropolis and city view. Desk staff was very helpful - arranged our airport taxi pickup, carefully explained how to take the metro to Piraeus, and recommended a good nearby restaurant. Breakfast must have been neither terrible nor terrific, because I have no recollection of the food.

Excellent location, in the middle of Plaka district, close to majority of "must see". The rooms are fresh and very clean. Standard room is quite small, but it has all you need. I was not that satisfied with breakfast, but anyway worth to go there!

This hotel is a very good choice for a short stay in Athens, or for a budget trip. It's conveniently located in Plaka, in a walking distance to the main atractions. The hotel street is a little creepy, but a few blocks away you get to the main streets and you loose this sensation. Really nice staff, excelent breakfast and a surprisingly good room, although it's quite small. But, to be just, I must say it's very good value for the money you pay. Better than I expected. If you're looking for a cheap but good place to stay in Athens, this may be a good choice.

The hotel is in Plaka and it is not only a safe area but in a great area of Athens.
All the receptionists I met were very nice and very friendly.
The breakfast was nice.
The only negative were that the room was very small and it was on the basement so it was not very quite.

Room Tip: Avoid a room in the basement.

I feel bad giving Sweet Home Hotel 4 stars, if there was a 4 and a half option I would have gone for this... first let me start off by saying that the staff at Sweet Home are excellent. I received an email before arrival thanking me for booking with them and giving me information on how to travel to the hotel from the airport / port. I opted for the X95 bus (basically direct and 50euros cheaper than the private transfer (5 euros each way and stops a 3minute walk from the hotel).

Sweet Home Hotel is located a 2minute walk from Syntagma Square, a 2minute walk from Plaka, a 5minute walk from Monastiraki and a 7minute walk from the National Gardens. The Acropolis, Lycabettus Hill and the Agoras are super nearby too - perfect location. No need for cabs anywhere unless you want to venture further out... but for a three day break it was perfect.

The staff are lovely - Athena, Afrodite and another lovely lady who I didn't catch the name of - you made my stay exceptional - thank you!

Breakfast is included...eggs, selection of cheeses and cold meats, juices, a few desserts - enough to start your day off with. Only gripe I have is that the walls are very thin, I could hear showers and toilet flushes throughout the night. But this hardly ruined my stay. Beds were lovely - room always made up. Would highly recommend sweet home hotel to other travellers. Location cannot be beat!

We stayed here for 4 days last week and was a great stay. There was great breakfast each day, comfortable bed, fast internet, great amenities. The only complaint I have has to do with people more than the hotel. The doors are designed that you have to swipe your card to turn the handle from out side the door. So when you are closing the door if you don't swipe you have to slam it shut. People did not pay attention to this and I was constantly bothered by people slamming doors. It is a very old building and things are creaky and walls are thin so don't go here expecting silence, but even though it is old it is very up to date with modern features. Very well done. The staff is very accommodating and nice. it is located close to everything and well worth the price. I would stay here again with out hesitation.

Room Tip: The economy room is as they described 9sq meters so make sure you know what that is before booking a...
