recently stayed 2 nights at this lovely hotel. Rooms are average size, nice bathroom, staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly and professional. We arrived late and I mentioned it was my husband's birthday, next morning the staff brought a lovely little cake with a candle out with his breakfast. Very easy to walk form here to most major tourist attractions and staff give good directions. Nice restaurants within 5 minute walk.

Room Tip: our view from first floor room was over a dingy alley, maybe ask for a better view from a higher fl...

Imagine arriving at Piraeus harbor in the middle of July after a long boat journey, it´s 45 degrees Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit) outside and the children (7 and 9 years old) are NOT in their best mood to say the least, neither is the wife. All outdoor museums are closed due to the heat, even Parthenon.

Finally we somehow managed it to O&B Athens Boutique Hotel and entering the hotel felt like coming to heaven, lovely air con, beautiful interior and the friendly staff gave us some well needed refreshments.

The room was very nice, tastefully decorated, ok size for a family of four with a lovely bath room.

The breakfast was good, better than regular hotel breakfast according us.

The only drawback is that the neighborhood could have been cozier and the view from our room nicer. Some of the rooms do have view over Parthenon but we thought it was not worth the extra cost, maybe next time. When choosing the hotel I thought that Parthenon was closer than it in reality was. It is however within walking distance; ask for direction at the reception.

The best thing about the room was the wonderful bed with its fantastic quilt, pillow and sheets (Egyptian linen); it must be the most comfortable be in the world!!

I would choose the hotel again.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view over Akropolis.

We really enjoyed our stay at O & B. Physically the hotel is nice, but nothing extraordinary. I don't mean this in a bad way, it is just not a really old historic building or on a stunning street, etc..

What made our stay so nice was the staff. Everyone was beyond helpful. You can tell they give the same orientation schpiel 20 times a day. But they always seemed happy to explain things, give advice, and give directions.

The neighborhood .... while not as picturesque as some others actually had a lot of character and had some great little restaurants and bars. Good to be (a little bit) off the tourist track but still close to everything.

This held for everyone from our waiters to the receptionist. Kudos.

We are happy to stay there for a night. Very friendly and courteous staff, always smiling and helpful. The hotel is in a great location, about 8 mins walk from the station. The area looks intimidating but I think it is safe and has quite a character. The room is very new, modern and clean but has a poorly designed door, so you can always hear other guests slamming to close their doors. Other then the occasionally door noise, it is pretty quiet. It was our last day in Athens and it was a nice way to end our honeymoon trip.

As stated in previous reviews, the hotel is relatively new, very modern, and clean. Buffet breakfast was delicious. Staff especially Pavlos at the front desk reception was kind, courteous very helpful with any and all questions. However the area is very noisy especially late at night and the hotel itself has no sound proofing so you hear everything from surrounding rooms etc.

We stayed in the Junior suite with the Acropolis view. Our daughter traveled with us so we needed the second bed. The view from the kingsized bed was a complete view of the Acropolis from bed! It was so amazing you never wanted to close the drapes at night. The room was clean, and it had an excellent shower. The staff was very helpful and the breakfast was definitely above average. The neighborhood looks slightly intimidating, but it is not, it seemed very safe to walk at night. The welcome platter was a very nice touch.

We stayed for multiple nights in between our trips to Delphi, Meteora and Santorini and this hotel and their staff are very welcoming especially Maria on the front desk. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms are very good. In addition it is located in a vibrant area and close to the metro. As a matter of fact we took the metro back to the airport for 14 Euro ins year of 35 Euro for taxi
