“The best place to stay in Athens!”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

This was my 4th stay at Novus City Hotel. I will never stay anywhere else in Athens.
It has a fantastic location, gorgeous and clean rooms and a wonderful view from the rooftop directly onto the Acropolis.
The team is super helpful and friendly.

Good hotel, everything was clean and tidy. The bed is big and confortable with a small TV in front of it. Wi-fi its supposed to work inside rooms, but it hadn't worken properly. The bathroom is really good in spite of not having a box, so you have to take care but even though showering carefully is really easy to make the whole floor wet. The room is big and well decorated, the breakfast is good and diverse and the AC works really good (only in apartament 409, in 709 it wasn't working). I heard people talking about bad surroundings but I couldn't realize it by myself at all

The hotel is convieniently located close to a metro station, but the neighboorhood itself is not so nice.
The rooms are nice, spacious and with a good equiped bathroom.
But a lot of street noise...
A big plus is the pool pion the roof with a good view on the Akropolis. The bar serves good drinks and nice food.
The breakfast is a huge plus for he hotel! A good range of both warm and cold food, very tastfull.
Overall a decent good hotel, pitty of the area.

Pros:

- Tassos at the reception was VERY friendly. He gave us lots of great advice during our 18 days in Greece.
- Breakfast was AMAZING! The best we had in our 18 days in Greece. Lots of variety and the greek yogurt was so yummy!
- nice view on the rooftop, we can see the Acropolis
- the hotel is pretty modern and has a good overall look
- located very close to a metro station.

Cons:

- wi fi was terrible!! They should not promote the fact that they have wi fi because it's simply not working 90% of the time.
- location is not great. We didnt mind that much since we enjoy walking. But if you are looking for a place located in the city center (la plaka), this hotel is not ideal.

Overall, we found that it was a good hotel for the price.

Very nice hotel. The hotel is rated as four stars hotel. I presume that three and one half stars would be more appropriate, but as far as the 4 stars is not an excuse for exaggerated pricing, I don`t care.
The hotel is 5 min walk from the Metro station "Metaxourgio". It is a big advantage, as you may easily access all touring spots and the airport. Hotel staff were very kind and efficient and eager to provide the best service they could offer.

The hotel is nicer inside than it appears from the busy street. Everything is accessible, either on foot or other means as it is close to lots of transport. It is well priced, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is great and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. You can see the Acropolis from the roof bar, but I wouldn't try to walk there.

We checked in late due to a delay in our boat but the front desk clerk was super helpful helping us find some food and also helping us set up our plans to see the city the next day. The breakfast in the am is very good and one I've the best we have had on our whole trip here. (We have stayed at 4 different hotels) It seems that the hotel recently updated it's self and it has done a good job. The lighting in the room is great, all four corners of the room have red lights that when turned on give the room a very classy feel. There were plugs all in the right places to charge our devices and it also had a small refrigerator. This is a great spot and the service was exceptional. Take the advice of the clerk and take the tour bus option, it makes your time to see the city so much easier. In closing I would have to say the view from the top is priceless. One side has the beautiful Acropolis and the other has the best view for a beautiful sun set.
