“A stylish oasis in the middle of buzzing Athens”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Stayed for 2 nights in this wonderful place close to Akropolis. Arrived around 9am in the morning, room was ready only 20 min later. Small, but trendy and comfy. Bathroom stocked with Korres products. Breakfast buffet with everything you could wish for including a machine that presses OJ to your order. Most memorable thing though: a rooftop terrace to die for with a pool and views of the Akropolis! Lunch and dinner is served up there. If Athens had not to offer 2500 years of history maybe we would't have left the hotel at all :-)

unlike the area which was not so clean and neat the hotel was very nice and comfortable. we were told that the area is not very safe but as our personal experience during our 3 nights of stay we did not have any problem. the hotel is located in a very convenient area, walking distance to some attractions and the tour bus station and sub way.with in 10 mins walk you could get to an alley full of stores and restaurants and night life. every night we used to walk to the hotel around 12;00 am and we did not see anything unsafe.

Fresh Hotel has a wonderful location near the major historical sites. The hotel's design is imaginative and, well, 'fresh.' The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar and restaurant provides a wonderful view of the Acropolis and a comfortable atmosphere.

Cannot say a wrong word regarding this hotel. I loved everything about it and also it's location in the real heart of downtown Athens....travelled with husband and an 18 and 17 year old who at no stage felt area was risky...yes it does have plenty of graffi and looks a little rough but to me that's what actually made it. Great hotel, great city.

Fresh is near the main market, but that means its really easy to get to all the main attractions, and close to the restaurants of Psirri. A wonderful rooftop bar, free wifi, easy to organise trips and yoga by the rooftop pool. What's not to like?!

We stayed in Fresh Hotel for one night at the end of our travelling holiday.
The Reception staff are efficient, welcoming and friendly.
The room was interestingly and refreshingly furnished although I think that had we stayed for several nights the colour scheme might have irritated. The bed was comfortable, although too low for my oldish bones.
The room in which the breakfast buffet is served was shocking pink; thank heavens I did not have a hangover and that I did have my sunglasses with me. Breakfast was however very good with a wide variety of options, and we noticed several other guests feeding themselves up, obviously to last the entire day!
We arrived on a Sunday and on arrival went to the rooftop bar (which adjoins the swimming pool and sun terrace) for a drink. Big mistake. At 17:00 this was heaving, with masses of semi-naked people - and most were definitely Not beautiful people - crowding into the bar. The floor in the bar and the lifts was wet (presumably from dripping bodies). Even down market pubs in The UK usually have a 'no bare torsos / bare feet at the bar' rule, and I urge Fresh to adopt something similar to make bathers/ sunbathers dry and cover up before doing into the bar area....especially as I suspect many of these people were not even hotel guests.
This did not show ever spoil our enjoyment of the hotel, ad on for Monday lunch we did have an excellent meal in the (now) quiet and comfortable rooftop bar.

Room Tip: Probably best to avoid floor 8 which has the bar / pool above it.
