Reviewed 11 November 2008

I had booked at Filoxenia Hotel, but, when I arrived there, they simply moved me to Hotel Roy. Staff here was very friendly and helpful, but the room was very small and had a window which couldn't be closed and and had no ventilation at all, opening in some kind of chimmey. The bathroom was extremely small and the door couldn't be closed. The blanket on the bed had some strange spots...

We were supposed to stay at Filoxenia Hotel but as they had electrical problems were moved to Hotel Roy. This is a very basic hotel but it was bright & clean and the bed was comfortable. Toiletries were excellent a nail file and sewing kit were also supplied. The lift was small carrying a maximum of 2 people or 1 person and 1 bag. Breakfast was basic continental breakfast. The area where the hotel was situated was rather seedy but we did not encounter any problems. This was a stopover for us as we were travelling to the Greek Islands. I would stay there again on an overnight stay but for any length of time would look for something in a nicer area.

I had to go to athens for a meeting, i stayed at Roy Hotel for 4 days. The hotel is quite clean, the rooms clean and tidy, with tv, aircontidion, wc, etc. The breakfast included was nice, and the manager as well as the other clerks were very friendly and helpfull.
For a short or a long stay the hotel is quite good, especially if you have to be near center.

A thing that really impressed me was that the hotel had all over nice paintings.When i asked the manager told me that all this staff was from very well known greek artists. It was really nice, like an art hotel or so...

I have some photos so you can see the hotel.And the room i stayed.

Small, but clean and everything worked. Both the manager and desk clerk were friendly and helpful. Cold buffet breakfast included was good. The location was good and a sign on the main street VERY helpful. Metro about 4 blocks away. Also lots of restaurants, shops and a very pretty little park. I would recommend it to people on a budget who are looking for a good value for their money!

This was my third trip in Athens and I decided to stay at the Hotel Roy largely because of the price and somewhat central location. The room turned out to be the size of a broom closet, the bathroom smelled of mold, guests argued in other rooms, and there was no AC during a month of 40+ C temperatures! When I asked to change rooms (to a more expensive one), I was told that it could only be done at certain times of the day. The front desk staff were unpolite and unkempt. They even seemed to take glee in telling me how long it would take for a taxi to arrive if they called one. When I asked for breakfast, I was told I had to pay. I said no problem, then they proceeded to tell me that breakfast hours had ended 5 minutes earlier... at 9:30am on a Sunday! Avoid this place... it could easily wreck your trip to Athens.
