“greek holiday”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

i was in july this year with my boyfriend and we had the last floor room-a big room, with double , comfortable bed, air conditioner, big flat screen TV, fridge , very clean too. The room has a big balcony with flowers, a littlee table and chairs, perfect for a cool drink in the night with a spectacular view of the Acropolis.
The staff is nice, helpful and friendly. Delivery in the rooms. They have a little cafe with cakes and pastries, drinks and coffee.
They need just little things to take care and this hotel can be very good one.
Metro is just few steps away, Metaxourghio Station, very convenient if you want to go in the centre of Athens ( 1,40 euros one way ticket ) for Plaka or Syntagma Square or for the aiport ( 8 euros one way ).
Don t wander alone at night in the streets, and don t park your car out. Is a parking place near the hotel , but the price -10 euros/24 hours is to high.
We can give a 9,50 for this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for the last floor room-is perfect, with a big balcony and a great view of the acropolis

Filled with all kinds of nations, good coffee and no wifi :) But it's very clean, good price, had awsome places to eat around and metro is just few steps away, just don't wander alone at night in the streets :)

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.
