I stayed at the Centrotel Hotel for a week in September on business. I was looking for a hotel located in the business area of Athens rather than the tourist areas and this one suited fine. Located a few minutes walk from two metro stations and the main railway station I felt perfectly safe at night going towards Larissa station, not so comfortable towards Victoria station.
When i arrived at Victoria Station with all my luggage I became hopelessly lost and took a long time to find the hotel but what an oasis when I arrived. The staff were so friendly and let me occupy my room immediately (11:30 am) to allow me to sleep off my jet lag.
The rooms are well furnished with a big firm bed, spa bath, AC and best of all Double Glazing - no noise from the street at all; which is a big deal in Athens owing to the canyon like nature of almost every street in the inner city.
I had a really good feel about the place and these are the highlights:
Enormous breakfast delivered to your room for only 10E - eat on the balcony and enjoy the Athens street life.
Complimentary Wireless Internet! What a blessing for business travelers.
Wonderful staff, who look after you.
Supermarkets and bakeries on the next block
My plans changed and I had to stay an extra night which was accommodated without any fuss at all.
One word of advice when traveling from the airport if you decide to try the train - it no longer runs direct to the city but terminates in the suburbs forcing a change of trains. Don't bother, get the Line 3 metro instead or a taxi.
