“Good hotel in a so-so neighbourhood”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

The hotel is quite big and ok: my room was very large, the price absolutely ok, staff nice and helpful. Breakfast about normal, and as there were many people it was noisy and a bit chaotic.
If you don't care to stay 20 minutes by foot from the Acropolis and in a neigbourhood which looks a bit run down it could be fine choice.

an excellent hotel. We stay on 6th gloom suite, extra large room, good bathroom and excellent balcony. Free internet all the time in the room which is very clean with full mini bar and coffee/ tea tray. The staff is very kind and helpful.
It is clean and very cheap, and you can reach everything in Athens easily, it really worths.
The area is very nice and the hotel is located very close to the metro station.
It is an excellent choice.

I stayed at the Ilissos Hotel for a few nights in January. Even though, I arrived in the morning, they promptly gave me the keys to the room with a map and a general description of the area. On entering the room, I opened the curtains to see apartments, and the Acropolis and Parthenon gleaming white in the distance.
The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable.
The hotel is a five minute walk from the the Syngrou-fix metro stop. On exiting the station, turn right on to Syngrou Ave Follow the road. There's a big gray building on the other side of the road, keep walking past that and the nice cafes. Eventually, you'll see a little park with trees and benches, you'll see the Illissos. There's kind of a fork in the road here.

The service at the Ilissos was excellent, even kind. The Greek salad is 5 euros. It's a big salad.
I'd recommend this hotel. You can book tours there too. I'd never been to Greece before. The people at the Ilissos left a good impression.

I have stayed many times at this hotel that now feels like home!
The staff is very kind and helpful, especially Natasa.
It is clean and very cheap, it really worths!
The area is very nice and the hotel is located very close to the metro station.
The breakfast is also very good.
The only thing I have to mention is that they should take advantage of the roof garden!
I'll be back!

Ilissos is located In the center of Athens, around 10 minutes walking distance from the nearest metro station (Sygrou fix)
This 4 star is charging literally nothing for bed and breakfast, you will find a clean room good breakfast and friendly staff, also you will find good and affordable restaurants near the hotel (5-minutes walking)
You will easily find your way to the famous Acropolis either by Train or if you enjoy walking.

I recommend this hotel for mature couples heading for a business trip in
Athens with some entertainment.

Cheers.

Our travel agent found this hotel for us. Our requirements were moderate price, clean, and within walking distance of the Plaka and the Acropolis. All three requirements were met. The rooms were clean, met all our needs and had new mattresses - so comfy. The patio on the roof was an added bonus. We especially enjoyed sitting up there looking at the Acropolis at night when it was all lit up. Beautiful! When we first arrived, we were a little concerned about the surrounding area, but after talking to the girls at the front desk, who said they walked alone in the area at night all the time, we never felt unsafe walking to and from wherever we went. The breakfast selection at the hotel was wonderful - puts our continental breakfast in the states to shame. We ate dinner there once; it was delicious. There are so many good restaurants in the area that you will never have to eat at the same place twice. The staff at the hotel was incredibly friendly and so very helpful. Our luggage took a three day side trip to Paris without us. The girls at the front desk called the airlines sometimes three times a day trying to find out the status of our luggage. They helped to make a difficult situation bearable, and we had many good laughs as a result. By the time we left, we had become good friends with John and Natasha. Thank you for making the dream of a lifetime such a great experience. When we go back to Greece in a couple of years, we will be staying at the Iliossis Hotel again.

Room Tip: Our rooms were in the back so didn't notice any noise that others reviewers reported.
