“Good value for money, but slightly run down.”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

The hotel is very conveniently located in a quiet street, just off Larissa Station square, so getting there and subsequently around Athens is easy: metro and loads of buses are a minute away. The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful (although the night staff seems to enjoy wine a bit too much). The room we stayed in (family and child) had a double bed and a bunk - but the room and washroom really were too small to accomodate three. The little balcony had two seats, but again, was too small for comfort. The breakfast is being served on the roof terrace, which has basically been closed and can't be called a terrace no more. What is served does the job but is sort of Spartan in terms of choice. And since smoking is still quite okay in Greece, don't be susprised if you have your breakfast with a smoker next to you. All in all very good vakue for money and perfectly located in terms of city accesability, but don't expect any serious comfort.

Diethens is a great budget hotel, which is perfectly located 300 meters away from the Metro station and 10 minutes away from the Victoria square. The price for a room is too low comparing with other 2 star hotels, so it is perfect if you are looking for a low cost, high standard place to stay for some nights. My room was spotlessly clean, the staff was smiley and helpfull and the breakfast on the rooftop was above my expectations. The room was equipped with an A/C, a television and a mini fridge all working very well and you can use them without any extra charge. I would say that I had a nice stay in Diethnes Hotel and it is a very good choise for someone who wants a hotel which is affordable, clean and close to the metro station.

The hotel is conveniently located next to the main train station in Athens (Larissis), and with a 15 minute walk of the ancient sites and Old CIty. It is housed in a charming 19th c. building that stands out in its surroundings - the neighborhood is a little shabby, but safe. We were using the hotel as a launching/returning point for a cruise from Pireaus. The rooms are variously sized, and it is definitely worth paying tan extra five or ten euros for a "superior" doubel room. The little balcony was charming, and I loved the original mouldings on the ceilings. Beds were a little hard, but eveything was extremely clean. Wifi worked perfectly, and our room even came with its own laptop and printer, complementary! The staff were WONDERFUL, helpful, friendly, and proactive (they double-checked train scheduels for us since the metro was striking). Breakfast was continental, but charming on the rooftop, with a lovely view of the city. I highly recommend this as a budget accomodation! Cannot be beat for the price, and would stay there again!

Room Tip: Book the superios double room - the extra space is worth the extra ten EUR!

My husband and I had a two-day stopover in Athens while on a site seeing trip, we stayed at the Diethnes Hotel. We had a twin room and it was only $87.52 for the two nights. The room was very clean however; the air conditioning did not work in our room. Luckily, it was not too hot. The staff spoke English very well and helped us to find places nearby to see while staying. The Larissa Station was just a short walk from the hotel and we were able to a see few sites before we left. Overall, the stay was nice but we might look for an upgrade the next time.

We've been traveling for quite a while now, and compared to other budget hotels we've used on this trip, this one is a gem.

The price is decent, the area is clean and safe and close to the metro (about a block away from Larisa Station), the staff is friendly.

THE WIFI WORKS, and works in the rooms. The staff is generous with the passwords, giving one per device. (Other hotels made the two of us share, only allowing us access one at a time, and some the wifi passwords didn't even work.)

The terrace breakfast room is lovely, and one day when we had to leave before breakfast was served to catch our ferry for a day tour, the staff prepared a special breakfast for us downstairs!

Also, because we are backpacking, and only have camping towels. We took our bathroom towels on the ferry with us. When we came back, we had fresh towels. That hasn't always been the case either.

All in all, we have been delighted with the friendly generous service in this lovely little hotel.

I spent three nights here and thought it was a great find. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed, good shower, reasonable storage and a little fridge, good breakfast in top floor breakfast room with fantastic views, not that that matters in a city hotel!! Very quiet location but right next to Larissa metro and station, where one can easily get taxis to bus stations etc. I had a late arrival on my first night and was able to have a very nice salad and a beer in the little bar. Reception is open 24 hours so ideal for late arrivals/early starts. Supermarket around the corner for any forgotten items. As others have said, I would stay there again.

I stayed in this hotel for one night. The hotel has a nice character, kept clean, good location, just a bloc around Larissa Station. Staff was very nice and helpful. The only small con is that the shower was one of those stand up one with only a curtain, so when you took a shower there would be water everywhere. Overall I'm very happy for the money (30 Euros for 2 people), and I would come back again.
