“Acropolis rooftop bar top view”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

Great views of hills, Athens and the floodlit Acropolis from the roof top bar.
Modern hotel with good service and smallish rooms. Good breakfast selections and good location some 300m from Syntagma Square and walking distance for shopping, museoms and acropolis.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view of the acropolis.

We stayed just one night at the Central Hotel. Location was perfect. Within walking distance of Syntagma Square, the Plaka shopping district and the Acropolis. Our room was comfortable, with clean, contemporary bathroom and shower and furnishings. The air conditioning could have been a little cooler, but it was extremely hot when we were there. Best of all is the terrace view of the Acropolis at night. Great place to have a drink and take in the city lights.

This is our first trip to Athens and we're coming from Santorini and Naxos, so my review is only relative to our experience - check the seasoned veterans out there for all the options! We're here in Greece the last week of August and first couple days of September. The price was less the Santorini and more than Naxos - unsurprisingly.

My take:
- perfect location to all the central Athens sites, easting, shopping, transit
- we took a ferry from Naxos and had little trouble grabbing the Metro from the ferry (the station is about five blocks from the ferry terminal and you have to transfer once at Monastiraki if you go to Syntagma, but you may be able to just get off at Monastiraki - again, somebody better traveled may know, we got lucky and met Americans who was returning to their hotel)
- the staff is polite, friendly, and helpful
- the room was very clean
- relative to our other rooms in Greece, the size is ample (someone else complained about this, but we have no idea what their gripe could be)
- the bed seems to be the standard issue bed in Greece, just fine (but like all our beds in Greece, pretty firm for we soft Americans!)
- Wifi is free, easy, and has ample signal
- someone said the bathrooms here were small, but it seems the same as other Greece hotel bathrooms, perfectly clean, well-functioning
- we got a room that has a vista and we can see the Acropolis if we stand at the door (there is no balcony, but the glass door opens fully and there is a rail.
- AC works great
- The room was as quiet as any hotel room - we had no issues
- someone complained in another review about the small elevator: A) it is the smallest I have ever been on, but B) there was no issue at all; worked fine, fast, and it's smallness was kind of funny
- the roof bar has a fantastic view of the Acropolis, the staff was friendly, and the drinks and bar food were fine
- the breakfast was great and plenty of options and it all tasted above average. They even have an espresso machine for espresso or cappuccino
- the hotel is modern, simple, clean, and updated - no nostalgia here

I cannot think of anything that was very good. Maybe you could pay less (?) but all I can do is rate what I have and it meet all our needs for comfort as our staging point for central Athens.

Bon voyagé!

There are 2 reasons to choose the Central, it really is central - between Syntagma square and the Acropolis and secondly it has a rooftop bar with an amazing view of the Acropolis especially at sunset, where you can enjoy an ouzo after a dip in the jacuzzi. Yes the rooms + bathrooms are, shall we say, compact, but this is the price you pay for the convenience of being in Plaka...and for the price. I just wish european hotels would understand the concept of a double bed - that it is NOT 2 singles shoved together with a horrible ridged gap in between.

Room Tip: Request an Acropolis view room

We recently stayed at this hotel and i would really recommend it - the location was perfect and especially if like us you dont have a long time in Athens its great because its really close to the places you are likely to most want to see. Its also got the most gorgeous view from the roof of the Acropolis which lights up at night - you can choose whether you have a drink and embrace the view or go for a roof top jacuzzi and do so. Both great options. We had an initial challenge with the air-conditioner but they sorted it straight away. The service was also generally very good though initially we had some sort of communication problem re printing out my voucher but it was also soon sorted.

We spent 4 nights at the Central Hotel Athens. The hotel was perfect from the moment we checked in until we left. The staff couldn't have been kinder. The rate included full breakfast even though they refer to it as continental. The view from the rooftop terrace and bar was of the Acropolis and we enjoyed late evening drinks marveling at what we were seeing. The location is perfect as most everything is within walking distance. I can't say enough good things about the hotel and I highly recommend it.

My stay at Central hotel was very pleasant. The breakfast is very good and also are the accommodations. Before arriving I was concerned about the location, but them I realized that it is very good. Dimitrios, at the reception, is always willing to help you.
