“Lancashire Yianni's visit”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

We just stayed one night whilst in transit between Pireaus and Athens Airport. We arrived late but received a tremendous welcome and speedy transfer to our room. Could not fault the accommodation which included Korres toiletries, was clean, spacious and quiet. The views of Athens at night from the rooftop bar and swimming pool were spectacular. The Accopolis was illuminated and looked something special. The breakfast was amazing, catering for all tastes, western, greek vegetarian, english with fantastic variety. I have noted some comments about the somewhat seedy location at the rear of the hotel. This is not a problem. If you wish to avaoid this aspect simply turn left out of reception and left again and you will find the Town Hall and square within 200 yards.

When you call a hotel "Fresh Hotel", want it or not, you make the customers require that extra freshness everywhere, and while generally almost there with fulfilling the promise, there are those small bits and pieces that show a need for a tiny bit of a "refreshment" of the hotel to keep it true to its name.
There are also some negative points besides that: the rooms are rather small, and no matter how hard you try to be careful, the strange way the shower room is designed means that you will have wet floor in the bathroom at all times.
On the positive side, the beds are very comfy, you have a rain shower, which I personally like a lot, the breakfast is abundant and very fresh indeed, the service is rather good, the location is perfect, if you care to explore the city, and the terrace on top floor, with small swimming pool, a view of Acropolis, and a nice bar/restaurant is worth an extra star.
Overall, I would recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: If you travel alone, make sure you get a "double use single" room, since the "single...

second time i return to fres hotel and this ha become one f my favourite boutique hotels.The rooms are fairly smal but cool, functional and quiet ( I would recommend you ask a room that faces the street, smaller but brighter). the staff are super kind.The roof terrace is amazing! small refreshing pool and amazing views ; don't miss the sunset from there. Hotel is very LGBT friendly :)

Well the staff and management are very friendly and work to please the guest! I been on the road for 3 months, first thing I check is the bed, is it clean. Was not super impressed I pulled back the sheets! dark hairs on the mattress covers and stained mattress... ok this is not a five star place... but still..hair!!!! Yikes! So i called the front desk... immediate apology... trust me some hotels make you feel like you are too fussy if you complain!
Not a problem the hotel manger immediately was at the room and we were quickly moved and this bedding was much better.
For that reason i would say, give them a try!

We arrived at Fresh Hotel tired and hungry from a very long ferry ride through the Cyclades Islands on our way to Athens. The staff there made us feel right at home from the beginning. As it was our honeymoon, we were upgraded to a high-floor suite that gave us a soaker tub and separate living room - very much appreciated!

This hotel has all of the modern touches and design that one has come to expect from boutique, style-forward hotels, at a very reasonable price. It offers excellent value to travelers.

The rooftop bar and restaurant also has a good selection of cocktails and drinks, but what really makes it awesome is the view. It might be the best of the Acropolis and town centre that you can get in the city.

As for the hotel's location, we had absolutely no problems with it whatsoever. Now, I'm from a very large urban city myself, so that may have had something to do with it, but the area around the hotel did not seem unsafe to me. Yes, the streets north of the hotel are rundown and impoverished, but there is a difference between rundown and dangerous. We walked around at night without any problems. A great plus about this hotel's location is it's proximity to Athens' Central Market, which is a must-visit for any food lover. It also only took us about 20 minutes of leisurely walking to reach the Acropolis.

The breakfast at the hotel, which was included in our rate, was excellent. When we had to leave early the next day to catch our flight, they gave us "breakfast to go" instead.

The bottom line is that Fresh Hotel offers up modern, hip rooms with great amenities and service. It all totals up to a high value experience for the price they charge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 6th floor. This will get you high enough to avoid noise on the street, while k...

We booked Fresh Hotel for our last two nights in Athens after staying at the Hilton for our first two nights a couple of weeks earlier. It was booked out so we searched tripadvisor for a good alternative. We lucked out with Fresh. The room was very comfortable and well appointed. The rooftop bar was great - with a stunning view, and the location led us to a really interesting part of Athens. Yes, perhaps you wouldn't wander alone too late at night but during the day and the evening it is really fine. The food markets around the corner were fascinating and the Plaka and other good shops and streets are minutes away. The view of the Acropolis from our room was partial but we could see most of it, and the terrace at night showcased the whole of it. We were on the 8th floor and I'd suggest trying for the 7th as there was a little noise from the rooftop (9th floor) but it didn't keep us awake. The breakfast buffet is excellent and a real bonus. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: The 8th floor was a little noisy so if possible ask for a slightly lower floor.

Fresh hotel had a great breakfast and the best part is it's included in the price of the hotel. The hotel was a very good value for the money. It included a huge breakfast with fresh squeeze orange juice (squeezed right before your eyes). There also was a roof top pool and restaurant with a view of the acropolis, which was a great place to relax after a day of sight seeing. The rooms were small but were comfortable, clean and quiet. The metro and most of the tourist sights are within walking distance.
