“Excellent Location & Service”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

My husband and I stayed a total of 6 nights at Fresh Hotel during our travels in Greece this past May. The location is accessible (just a few minutes by foot from the Monastiraki subway station), and, for the most part, within walking distance to all the major tourist sites in Athens. Additionally, we couldn't have asked for better amenities or service: friendly front desk staff, hot shower, comfortable bed, quiet room, and a satisfying breakfast. On several mornings, we left before breakfast was served to catch a bus or boat. On each occasion, the hotel prepared a bagged breakfast for us to take along. To top off the experience, the hotel upgraded our room to a suite for free during our last night's stay.

Our stay at Fresh Hotel in Athens was excellent. The room was clean and spacious, the rate was very competitive comparing it to other hotels and the restaurant and bar on the top level served great food and the view to the Acropolis was stunning.
Everything we needed to see was within walking distance and we were very pleased with our stay. John and John

Room Tip: Rooms on a high floor for a great view

Fresh Hotel in Athens was a great first stop for my family on our holiday in Greece. We had a family room, which really meant two separate rooms connected by a small hallway which was secured by a lockable door. This option gave us plenty of space for our family of 4 (two adults, two kids). I felt it was good value for the money.

The location was great for us, as it was a 5 - 10 minute walk to Monastiraki Market (though the neighbourhood behind the hotel is a bit sketchy, but we did not find it necessary to go through there at all). Breakfast was good also. The defining feature of the hotel for me is the rooftop pool and lounge. This rooftop was outstanding, with really lovely lounge furniture, umbrellas to keep cool in the sun, and a beautiful pool. After a busy morning of touring around the city, we were always happy to get back to the rooftop for some relaxation. Food and drinks are served there, and while the prices were a little high, the quality was excellent.

We would return to Fresh in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Family rooms are spacious.

Stayed at this hotel by chance in Athens. We had booked at Titania Hotel which had "problems" in many rooms and then got transferred here and we were glad in the end because Fresh was nice. It was close to the shopping area of Ermou street which we wanted to spend a day at and only a 6euro taxi ride to Plaka. The breakfast buffet was perfect and had freshly squeezed orange juice, and I mean fresh, the oranges went whole into the machines, got sliced and juiced right into your glass! Good drip coffee and espresso or greek coffees, frappes at request. The bed was very comfortable and we were glad to get switched to a room with a queen (and not two singles) since it was our honeymoon and we didnt want to be sleeping apart already! The shower was half open with a glass wall and we had to be nimble not to let too much water out onto the floor. The front desk workers were awesome, calling us taxis, calling the restaurant we ate at (Taverna Toupsara on Restaurant Hill in Plaka) and answered our calls from the room immediately.

Nice central hotel. The area around is not the best but it is within easy walking distance to most sights.
Rooms are clean and comfortable. The roof top restaurant has really nice food but a bit pricy. The pool is smaller than in the pictures.

After reading the many positive reviews of this hotel perhaps I was expecting a bit more. On the positive side: it is indeed a very nicely decorated hotel with a good location for the major tourist sites and the restaurants of the Psyrri neighbourhood. Also the breakfast buffet is very good. Rooms are tiny with very little room to store anything, but have good beds. Some attention to detail however would in my opinion make it better: for example there was no soap in our bathroom on arrival and shower gel and shampoo were not replenished during our stay. The rainshower is not very practical in the small shower space: the whole floor of the bathroom was completely flooded after showering so would advise a normal shower head (that you can actually hang up, or a door in the shower. The toilet roll holder was hanging loose from the wall.
Overall a good but not great experience.

This hotel is all what others say -
- good location,
- great roof terrace
- friendly folks
- swanky deco

BUT, it has two weaknesses that are kind of overlooked:

The noise insulation of the windows is low or not existing, while we stayed in the 7th floor, it made no difference if you had the windows open or closed.

The rooms are VERY VERY much like cages, like I had less than 1 m on one of the bed sides.
Bathroom is very tightly furnished.

Great experience, good people on the front desk and roof top.
