“Great position.”
Reviewed 12 October 2011

Loved the Myrto - doesn't claim to be 5 star, but clean, very comfortable, and quaint. Worth a visit to see the tiny but efficient lift! With a view of the Acropolis from one window, and St John's on Mt Lycabettus from the balcony on the other side, and Syntagma Square, Parliament House (and the Changing of the Guard) and the Metro just 5 minutes away, there's easy access to whatever you want to do. Breakfast is simple but adequate.
All at reception were friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back if I return to Athens.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Acropolis if you want one.

Room - very dated, not very clean (carpet was dirty, parts of the bathroom also dirty) bed linen was clean so adequate for a couple of days. Breakfast - adequate, although the fried aggs were cooked at 7am and left so if you went down at say, 8, they were cold.
Staff - very nice and friendly
Location - the best thing about the hotel - literally 2 minutes from Syntagma Square. To summarise - you get what you pay for, so for 69 euros for a double room in the centre of Athens I suppose you cant complain. Athens, by the way, is amazing!

...and what you pay for here is the superb location - a mere hundred metres or so from one of the most interesting areas in any city - Plaka, Athens.
The hotel itself is undeniably quirky and not a little shabby. Despite its rather run-down aspect it was cleaned to a very high standard - the bathroom was sanitised and the sheets spotless. The beds were comfortable too - even the fold-down ones.
The breakfasts were very adequate by Greek standards and the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful.
If you want luxury, go pay luxury prices - we paid 108 euros per night for a family of four including continental buffet breakfast.
This hotel was absolutely fine as a rather basic 'base' for our two day city break - we will probably remember it more than the rather anodyne chain hotels that we have stayed in.

We stayed here for 5 nights in June of 2010 with our two daughters, 22 and 18. We had the family suite and it worked out great for us. Our window had a view of the Akropolis. which was breathtaking at night! It was on the small side, but we didn't spend much time in our room, so it was fine. It was clean and the bathroom was adequate. Not the same as American standards, but remember you are in an ancient city, so try to be patient. Internet was free, but not too reliable. We weren't there for that, so it was fine. The breakfast was delicious - yogurt was incredible! We loved the morning staff member -- he was so friendly and helpful. He tried (patiently) to teach me some greek, but I failed miserably. He was so kind!

We would definitely come here again. There is SO much to see and do and so much good food to eat! Don't hesitate to book, just don't expect the Ritz and you'll enjoy it too!

Room Tip: Only a couple of family rooms available

My husband and I stayed at the Myrto for 2 transit nights in Athens (between airport arrival and departure for a 4-day buss tour and again between the bus tour and departure for the islands). This hotel is very well situated, 10 minutes from syntagma square so it makes it a great place if you are in a transit. You can pretty much walk everywhere from this hotel.

The staff is very friendly and helpful and there is a small market (grocery store) right on the corner. There is also wifi. Breakfast is good and offers many choices, ham and cheese, juice, coffee, fryed eggs, bread, cereals and fruits.

The rooms and bathrooms (we stayed in two different ones) are however outdated and would need renovations. Everything was clean though.

The budget Hotel Myrto is just a few blocks from the bus terminal and in easy walking distance to the Acropolis and the shops and cafes of the Plaka district. The staff, Corinna and others, were super-helpful, both before we arrived with suggestions on various ways to get from the airport (we took the bus - very cheap & easy), and while we were there. The breakfast was plentiful.

The room was small, but we weren't in Athens to spend time in the room. The bathroom was fairly decrepit, but at least it was private. It's not a luxury experience, but for sleeping off jet lag and getting organized to set off for the islands - there are lots of travel agents near by - it was just fine.

We had 2 rooms for 2 nights and both rooms looked like they should be condemned. It's not just outdated, but floors with a large dip, paint peeling, and broken tiles all over the shower everywhere and worst is the door knobs that are basically indoor knobs with a key lock, but were so loose that I'm sure anyone with a small shove could open the door.

The front desk staff were very nice and the breakfast was fine.

Unless the only way you can afford to see Athens is by staying here I would find somewhere else to stay, regardless of the good location it can't make up for the worst rooms I have ever stayed in.
