Friendly reception and adequate room facilities. Clean, minimalist. Okay room sizes - I had a view across to the rooftop of the next building.

Key drawcard is the amazing rooftop bar - with an incredible view of the city and acropolis. Friendly English-speaking bar staff, good food. Prices are not cheap but it's all about the view. Great atmosphere - bustling every day of the week.

Free breakfast was good value. Overall represents pretty good value - central location.

A nice choice to stay in Athens centre. Value for money. Friendly and nice staff. Nice interior in lobby and rooms. The only thing that we did not like was the location but we would like to stay in Fresh Hotel again. Overall a good choice.

Friendly, helpful staff, pleasant lobby with comfy sofas and an ersatz open fire. Room nicely appointed with everything except a hair drier. The bed was firm and comfortable with crisp cotton sheets. We were a bit shocked at the price of drinks (gin and tonic 9 euros) and the dinner, though nice enough, was also pricey. However the 9th floor restaurant had stunning views and the breakfast was very good and included in the room price. The surrounding area has many markets, bars, restaurants and shops - including Marks and Spencer and H & M. The Akropolis is a 40 minute walk away. We would definitely stay here again.

Just stayed 5 nights at the Fresh Hotel.
Had a pretty good experience and found it to be quite good value for money.
Check in was smooth and the staff was nice and friendly.
Room was average but clean. Bed was comfortable. For a "Superior room" the room was clearly on the small side though.
Breakfast selection was quite small but everything was fresh and tasty.
Roof top bar with views of the Acropolis was nice.Drinks perhaps a bit pricey.
Overall a pretty good experience. Staff was nice and friendly throughout. Location pretty good with most things within walking distance. Would I stay again? For a short stay yes, for a longer stay I would consider a hotel with bigger rooms.

We booked through Mr and Mrs Smith for a birthday celebration last May and had a horrible experience from beginning to end. The ikea-euro decor in the lobby and the very Mr and Mrs Smith-style chill out music did not disappoint necessarily, but the moment we checked in, it all went wrong. This feels like a very odd enclave of staff who think they're really something special, and have obviously read that being snotty will make customers think that you're offering something exclusive. They gave us 3 wrong rooms (all with single beds!) and got annoyed when we protested. Then they said that the hotel was full and that this was all we could hope for - an actual quote was 'you're lucky you get any room at all". My goodness. The hotel was far from full, the rooms were borderline DIRTY and the service was horrible. The area is a complete disaster really, and while other reviewers have been generous, I did not feel safe as a woman walking to and from the hotel at night. You can do better in Athens!!

High quality hotel in the center of Athens
The surroundings are not the best in terms of security but the hotel has a private large parking and you can call a cab from the reception an enjoy the night life of Athens.
The hotel is just a few minutes away from Monastiraki square giving you the opportunity to explore ancient Athens and Akropolis.
The roof garden with the stunning view offers a variety of high quality food and breakfast is more than adequate and with various selection of greek products to select.
Overall and excellent way to explore Athens on foot with safety and high quality services included

Stayed at the Fresh hotel in May 2O13 after a cruise. The hotel is lovely. The breakfast is a delicious buffet. Roof pool and deck are perfect after a long day of touring. The room is compact and comfortable. Nice balcony. Some have mentioned they felt the area was questionable. I did not. It is a typical large city with a variety of people. I enjoyed the fifteen minute walk to the Acropolis. Passing open air fish and meat market and an interesting variety of other merchants. I would stay again.
