Reviewed 5 July 2014

The hotel as very central but far enough away to be quiet. The roof top terrace was a great place to relax with a drink while looking at the view. The room was good but really the hotel needs a bit of maintenance - our door had been kicked in and really should of been replaced, made you feel a bit unsafe and the tv didn't work etc.

However, the staff did fix the tv and where very helpful, the owners just need to spend a bit of money painting the hallways and on repairs.

By far the best was the breakfast and the girls who attended us for our 4 Days were a pleasure. Overall good value for money.

We stayed here twice and the staff were very helpful and the facilities good. It is well located. Breakfast was good. The problem is the lift which fits 3 people without luggage. At busy times it is a nightmare. I'm happy to use stairs but this is not possible with bags. It took our family of 4 20 minutes in two trips to finally get 3 cases to our room. The double rooms were a good size but the family room was very small (this is basically two rooms with an annex/small foyer and another door. Very cramped and we were much happier with the two double rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for lower floor. Avoid family rooms.

Thank you very much for your review on our hotel. We are located in the historic centre of the city so building restrictions give us limited choice on sizes. You must have been with us on a very busy day not to use the “groom” to help you with your luggage. We are sorry for any inconvenience and we hope that you will be back in another trip to Athens.

We had a great experience at this hotel. The rooftop bar view is spectacular. It was convenient and lovely to have a night cap there, the cocktails were also delicious. A fresh, minty mojito was delightful. The elevator was terribly small, which is no big deal. But our a/c never really got cool enough. All in all, however, a very positive stay. Very easy to get everywhere. Walk to many restaurants and shops, two minutes from Syntagma Square.

We stayed 2 nights. Lobby is nice and people very kind in giving us all the info. The real plus of the hotel is location in the hearth of Plaka and the rooftop bar with a stunning view over Acropolis. Breakfast is ok while rooms are basic and small.

Thank you for your review on our hotel. We are very well located for those who love to walk around and visit all the major tourist attractions. As we are in the middle of Plaka, the historical centre of the city, our rooms are of standard size for most European cities. We hope that you will be back soon to enjoy Acropolis from Thea Terrace Bar.

after a disappointing experience with a nearby hotel- stumbled upon this hotel as my friends were staying here. was warmly accomodated and given a reduced rate by the exceptional customer service team who could see i was emotionally distraught. the location was amazing, the room facilities were better than expected. have also stayed at two other hotels in athens and this one supasses both. breakfast was included. thanks thanissos for taking care of me- felt at home, and experienced the Greek hospitality afforded by a great hotel with a great team. could not speak more highly of the place.

My husband and I stayed two nights recently and the hotel is very good. Close to everything. The staff were very helpful. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and a good shower. The roof top terrace was great.

Strategic location behind Syntagma, clean rooms, silent environment, really friendly staff, a beautiful terrace with breadthtaking view over the Acropolis, good breakfast. We ended up staying at Central by accident. It was a great surprise. We paid at the end of june 2014 100 euros for a double room including breakfast. To be noticed that we did not have pre-booking. Probably only the food quality fo the brekfast should be higher. The rest is close to be great. Warmly recommended the terrace bar in the evening.
