“Good value!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

The rooms itself were average, but a good value for the price you're paying. The beds are comfortable, it's clean (which is the most important thing to look for, I feel). One of the things that stood out were the lovely receptionists who were so helpful in helping us figuring out our itinerary. Once we ordered chinese take out to be delivered to our rooms, and the receptionist was more than happy to provide us with plates and cutleries. There's a nice little cafe adjoining to the hotel with good cakes and pastries. It's a two minute walk from the Metaxourghio Metro station which we took everyday and found very convenient. The hotel is also a 15 minute walk from the Plaka neighbourhood, which is where all the good restaurants and tavernas are. However, the hotel is located on abit of a dodgy street which made walking back at night abit scary (it was just us 3 girls on the trip) but all in all a good stay for the price you're paying.

On service alone I would give this hotel a 10 out of 10. They well organised, professional, friendly and helpful. Because of the good service I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Valentina.

The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Walking distance to the metro.

Hotel was 2min walk for the train station. The staff is what made this hotel! The first person we met (a rather old man)insisted that since we book two room and we wanted next to each other he will make it! And he did even tough we arrived early check in around 11am.when we went out, he asked me if I needed anything, any explanation about athens the metro etc....in this hotel you don't ask for anything they will for you!
The room are just decent, nothing fancy at all, small shower, bed comfy and room a bit small but you have what you pay for.
I had a problem with a tv (which was not really, it was just a cable disconnected) second person that I ask told me how to repair and told me at least five times that if anything to call her. You really feel that if anything happen they will make sure it will be fixed.
The hotel had a few restaurant and grocery store around and you will be less than 7min by train from the acropolis.
Overall awesome staff for a decent room hotel.

The Minoa hotel is very close to the metro, needed for the Acropolis and other sites. It is clean and comfortable, a travel bargain. Valentina and Alena were so helpful at the front desk, kudos to them. The included breakfast is upstairs and substantial.

Room Tip: Always ask to see a room, check bed, bath, wifi and hot water. We found our needs met at Minoa Hote...

Overall we had a very pleasant stay at this property. Location wise it was excellent since it was about a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro station. Staff was extremely friendly, well spoken and very helpful. Our rooms were not too small, and they were very clean and comfortable; free WiFi and had an in-room safe. A continental style breakfast was included which was simple but quite decent. Street noise was minimal but the issue at times was the noise that emanated from people walking through the hallway. Solid hotel given the price we paid for our room.

When we booked this hotel it was based on many aspects such as location price previous reviews, in the 7 nights we have been here we found the rooms very clean and daily maid service was excellent. Breakfast was included in our booking and whilst repetitive was good wholesome food suitable to all diets! The staff we met were all awesome, very friendly and happy to do all they could to ensure their guests needs were met. From the hotel their is a metro station 2 min. away which (Feb. 2014) 1Euro 40 for 1 hour 30 or 4 Euro for 24 hours on metro & trams . To walk to the Acropolis will take approx 25 min. On flat level roads till base of acropolis . All in all a great holiday enhanced by the kindness of staff at Hotel Minoa. Charles & Janice

Me and my partner booked this hotel for our week long stay in Athens expecting a simple,budget hotel with an average location but our expectations were exceeded! Both receptionist's were lovely, spoke very good English and always helped us with any questions or queries we had. There is a small lift which was helpful as our room was on the sixth floor. Had a fantastic view of the acropolis from our balcony, bathroom was small but clean and adequate. there's a small tv with bbc world news and mtv and national greek channels. the only negative point about this hotel was the bed- we booked a double room and it was two single beds pushed together which wasn't very comfortable but I think it is to be expected at most European hotels these days. Read from previous reviews that the hotel was 'dated' but in my opinion it is quite modern and not bad at all! Breakfast was ok and served between 8 and 10 am, not loads of choice but there was coffee and croissants, greek continental isn't much to get up for! there is an adjoining café with the hotel and the breakfast is served above there. Location was superb compared to other cities we have been to - the metro station is two minutes walk away and is just three stops away from the centre of 'Syntagma'. We found this useful as there wasn't much nearby in Metaxougio. Overall I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone who is staying in Athens and not wanting to spend a fortune on a central hotel but stay in a decent room and area like this one.

Room Tip: ask for room 64 great view of the acropolis!! and if possible require a double bed and not two singl...
