Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 October 2012

Stayed at the O&B in erly September and absolutly loved the place. The room had a comfortable bed and a really well appointed bathroom. We enjoyed the Raki and nibbles on arrival. The breakfast was superb and all the staff were really helpful and friendly. The location is fantastic and very close to the action. Don't be put off by the graffiti as it is safe at all hours. Would warmly recommend the place.

Great location if you want to see all the Archaeological sites, the hotel is very nice, and the staff are amazingly welcoming, pleasant and professional, they made us feel really welcome. The room was a nice size, and the centre of town is only a short walk through the flea market which is a fun walk in itself. We would go back to this hotel if in Athens.

Room Tip: We had the Thisio room and it was great and had a nice view especially at night.

All the excellent reviews of this hotel are correct and the only thing I can add is that the staff are the friendliest and most helpful we have ever encountered anywhere. Our room was comfortable, the breakfasts were tasty and plentiful, and the one dinner we ate at the restaurant was fine. I would recommend the O&B without reservation.

We stayed at O&B last week and it was as good as everyone says: such a nice change from the 'usual' chain hotels. Decor was very tasteful and the beds super-comfortable. Location was amazing and we felt safe walking in the day and evening with two children. I wouldn't recommend the hotel for families though: its very quiet and has no gym or pool, but a lovely and relaxing oasis for couples or singles. Breakfast was simple but each element well done. We ate there one day for lunch too which was delicious.

Two tips: a) print out a map or directions before you leave home. I tried FIVE taxis all who said they didn't know the hotel/ street or that it didn't exist. We thought we had been scammed but eventually found that it did in fact exist; its just on a very small street.
b) Cross the main street (Ermou St) and follow the lane way back one block and you will stumble across sooooo many wonderful restaurants and a lovely evening stroll with views of a number or lit-up ruins. We only found this on our last night because we had been only taking the main street into the heart of town- but this great area was right on our doorstep all along!

We stayed here and we very pleased. Breakfast was wonderful. Can't beat the location. Within walking distance to great restaurants and bars. The HOHO is just a block away, and so are the buses and metro. When we first got there, we were a little taken back by the area. Lots of graffiti. But no worries - it is safe at all hours. The rooms were very nice and comfy. It rained one day and the staff handed out umbrellas. Do take your own electrical adapters if you need them as they were out of the adapter we needed. We did have one adapter and managed to share that. Definitely would stay again. If you stay here, check out the restaurant next to the HOHO stop, about 1/2 block away. The food was excellent!

We spent two nights here and the general impression was a very good one. It's fair to say that the area around the hotel is 'interesting' (either run-down or characterful, depending upon your point of view), but whatever your view there is no doubt that it is SO conveniently positioned for the Acropolis and some really great bars and restaurants around the Psiri, Gazi, Plaka and Monastaraki districts in particular.

Within a couple of minutes of walking out of our hotel on the first evening, we were greeted with the wonderful site of the illuminated Acropolis. The very trendy 'A for Athens', surely possessing one of the world's most iconic views from its 8th floor terrace bar, is literally only a minute or two's walk away.

We only had breakfast at O&B, as we had been recommended to two different restaurants just minutes away which we particularly wanted to try. However we have to say the breakfasts were excellent, the staff very friendly, professional and helpful.

Upon arrival, crossing the threshold was rather like finding an oasis after the drive through the nearby streets. The hotel's design is very clean, modern, comfortable and certainly exhibits a 'quality' establishment. The (free) wi-fi is a bit 'hit and miss' but apart from that, there were very few negatives and plenty of positives. Reception staff were extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Within minutes of arriving in our room, we were greeted with a knock at the door and a plate of nibbles and glasses of tsipouro. Very nice touch.

Bathrooms in the superior rooms are excellent, modern and well designed. The beds are very comfortable with quality Egyptian linen.

Although some would say the area immediately around O&B is a tad 'rundown', the hotel's certainly not and in actual fact I would rather say the area is 'characterful' than run down. We felt totally safe walking to the bars and restaurants just minutes away. There are an excellent choice available and several possess 'wow' factors, particularly in Psiri and Gazi, with the customers seemingly being mostly 'trendy' locals. Those in the Plaka area are by comparison undoubtedly aimed mainly at tourists.

Would I stay at O&B Boutique Hotel again ? Definitely.

Room Tip: The superior rooms do NOT have a view of the acropolis but are very comfortable. We were shown two s...

Wow! Nice location! It is close to the sights and great restaurants! Excellent service and comfortable! Wifi was intermittent and the breakfast was a little lite but I highly recommend this modernly designed & simply beautiful hotel! I really appreciate the services too!

Room Tip: Ask for acropolis view! We loved our view!
