The hotel is situated in a good position near the metro.The staff were very helpful and courteous. An outstanding roof top bar. Price was very competitive during the off season.
Free WiFi which worked well and was extremely useful

Difficult to fault this hotel. Very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful, excellent bars and restaurants including one on the roof terrace with fabulous views of the Acropolis and Likevitou Hill. It is within walking distance of the main attractions, close to the Archaeology Museum and bus terminal, and very handy for the tube in Omonia Square (this last has had some negative reviews, but we had no problems). The Club Neon restaurant is just around the corner, if you want a change from the hotel menus.
We had a great week here and can recommend it unreservedly.

We had a couple of minor problems with the safe and toilet on arrival. These were fixed immediately by the extremely helpful and good natured staff. We ate at the hotel one night - perfectly acceptable and reasonable prices. The wifi was not fabulous so we took ourselves to a nearby cafe to use the internet. The hotel told us that this was currently being addressed. The area around the hotel was a little sad and closed due to the recession but it is very close to everywhere and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

A good hotel and the staff were so helpful with phone calls, recommendations or just helpful advice on different tours and operators. When we looked out the small balcony and to the right there was the Parthenon! The price was unbelievably cheap in the off season. There is a very nice little restaurant downstairs. Also there's a bar on the roof with a terrific view of the Acropolis and is just magic at night!. It was a pleasure spending the week there and we will be happy to return in the future.

There are lots of eateries nearby and it is a nice walk to the markets, parliament house (for the changing of the guard) and onto the acropolis. Such a beautiful city

About the area - I had also heard/read of issues in the area but at no time did we feel uncomfortable either during the day or evenings during the week we were there.

dear wagonweel,

we are really pleased to see that you took advantage of our winter offer and had an excellent stay here at the Polis Grand. As for the city and area issues it is something that Athens has left behind looking ahead to a bright future. Thank you for your nice and valuable review and we hope to visit us again in the near future.

best regards

Polis Grand Hotel is a very good hotel in the center of Athens.
Fantastic service and nice rooms.

A special thanks to "Manos" in the reception.
Your hotel should be very proud having such a helpful and friendly receptionist like him.

I'm happy to recommend this hotel to anyone:-)
And I will for sure come back, next time I visit Athens...

Thank you!

Maria (Naxos;-)
