Most of the "4-star" hotels we stayed at in Greece would be lucky to be rated 2 stars in America, as they had tiny rooms, tiny bathrooms, thin mattresses, 2 twin mattresses pushed together instead of a queen-sized bed, etc. However, Centrotel was an exception to that rule. Our room was huge, even larger than you would normally get in the US. The room was about twice the size of another hotel that we have stayed at in Athens, "Athens Center Square". No other hotel in Greece that we stayed at had a bathtub, but Centrotel had a jacuzzi tub.
Many reviews mention the sketchy neighborhood. It definitely would feel like a sketchy neighborhood to an American, but it's just an average Athens neighborhood. People might be shocked by the graffiti, which is everywhere in Athens (and even in most of the small towns we visited). Just remember that it's usually related to politics, not to gangs. Graffiti in Athens doesn't symbolize crime like it does in America.
They have an underground parking lot, which is a must-have if you will be driving in Athens.
