O&B Athens Boutique Hotel
Ranked #5 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 July 2014

My sister and I checked into the O&B Boutique just after our flight. Our room was outstanding and had a beautiful view of the Parthenon from our balcony. We left too quickly to sample the breakfast but it looked great. The staff was wonderful and helped us with dinner reservations and transfers to Piraeus port. Great hotel. Very clean, modern style and definitely lovely facility. Location was fine, a brief walk to the Acropolis park which is quite large; it is near the Parthenon end so very convenient. Great restaurants just a few blocks away and within easy walking distance of the Plaka.

The hotel is a pleasant 15 minute walk to the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum. The staff was welcoming, helpful and efficient. Our room was modern, comfortable and well appointed. The hotel restaurant had excellent food and an ample breakfast. The only downside is the location, which is on the edge of a sketchy neighborhood. There is a sex shop on the corner and many second hand shop in the area. In addition, at least on the weekend during our stay, there were many people selling a variety of used good on the sidewalk, which made it difficult to walk back to the hotel.

A hidden gem in Athens, the service provided to us was ultimate 4 Star. We were coming back from a tour in the Greek isles and Turkey. We decided to stay one night in Athens to visit the Acropolis and other historical landmarks. Amazing service from beginning to end. We were welcomed by the most courteous staff member I ever encounter. I worked for the hotel industry for almost 12 years now, my friend and girlfriend were blown away by the excellent customer service we received.

Loved this place....I highly recommended.

Room Tip: 40 Euros from airport to hotel and viceversa. Acropolis is about a 15 minute walk, bring student ID...

What a nice small hotel! This hotel is in the perfect location in Athens. This is a very hip and artsy area with loads of nice restaurants near. It is also walking distance to the agora temple and all the food places near there. We walked everywhere and enjoyed the Sunday flea market out the front door. It can be a noisy part of town, which means fun, so ask for a upper floor if that is an issue. The free breakfast was wonderful and first class both service and selection. Athens is a great town and has really cleaned up its act since the eighties. All in all we would stay again!

A Trip Advisor find, two blocks off Ermou and close to the Parthenon. Ideal location for touring Athens. Well equipped, spacious and clean rooms, quiet at night. Very friendly and helpful staff; gave us many excellent recommendations for restaurants and touring the city. Next trip to Athens, we will definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Our room was toward the back of the hotel, away from the street. No view, but what I'm after is...

Spacious, clean and comfortable room, right in the middle of the flea market and walking distance from major attractions in Athens. The staff were so nice and helpful! My husband and I had to change a flight at the last minute, and they called the airline to help us. Also do yourself a favor and eat breakfast there! i believe it was 7Euro per person but buffet style with fresh OJ, coffee, tea. Of course delicious greek yogurt with many, many toppings to choose from, baked goods, hot dishes, etc. On our return to Athens we plan to stay there again!

Getting there:
If flying in to Athens international airport, the hotel is a 45 minute (16 stop) ride on the Metro. The Metro leaves directly from the airport and costs 8 EU one way to Monastraki station. A taxi from the airport will cost you about 40 EU. The metro is very easy to navigate. All stops are announced in both Greek and English. It is about a 10 min walk to the Hotel from the station.

The Hotel:
Quick and easy check in. The room was small but adequate for what we needed (room #6). The washroom was big and clean. The room was equipped with a TV, DVD player and CD player. Robes and slippers are available in the room for guests. There are no outlets for electronic devices being brought from Canada except for one in the washroom for shavers. iPads will not charge in this outlet. The area looks a bit shady with graffiti and street vendors lingering everywhere but we didn't have issues with our safety as we walked around after we were acclimatized. The Acropolis is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. Thanasis restaurant in Monastraki had awesome food as reported by Andrew Zimmer the travelling chef. Breakfast at the hotel was good ( fruit, cereal, eggs, juice etc). The room had a mini bar available. For those Canadians who like their rye and ginger... Be ware..ginger ale is difficult to find. If you want to chill out with a drink after a long trip, grab a can of beer from the many street variety stores, cheaper then the mini bar. My only complaint is that the hotel doesn't have an area outside to sit and people watch when you want to escape from the very busy streets of Athens. If leaving early morning to the port or other destination, boxed breakfasts are offered by the hotel. Unfortunately after reminding the front desk twice that we would like one they forgot. Kudos to the hotel though for sending us an email and refunding us some money for the mix up.
One other minor indiscretion was that the front desk told us that we could collect our pre booked ferry tickets from one of the travel agencies on Niki Street Athens. This was incorrect. The travel agencies we inquired with (3 of them) informed us that this is NOT the case. Get your tickets at the port.

Travelling from the hotel to the port (Pireaus):
Thissio Metro station is about 100 metres from the front door of the hotel. Trains leave roughly every 10-15 mins to the port. The cost is 1.40 EU! It is 6 stops / 15 mins to the port. A couple at the hotel paid a taxi 30EU to be driven there. It is much easier and cost effective to take the Metro. Once at the station head towards the Ferries to pick up your tickets if ordered on line.

The Ferry:
Economy tickets mean, find a plastic chair on the deck and buckle in for the ride. We sat on the top deck at the rear of the boat. No issues with motion sickness but we filled our lungs with our fare share of fumes from the boat exhaust. Pay the extra for the next level up of seating - assigned seating inside the ferry.

Overall the hotel was good value for money. Booked on booking.com. Shady area but apparently that is part of the Athens experience. Food and market/bakery items are close by. We stayed 2 nights in Athens and left for Mykonos. That was a enough for us. Don't let your Athens experience dictate the rest of your ideals about what Greece offers. We are in Mykonos now and cannot even begin to compare the two..

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Acropolis.
