“Good location, decent rooms, be prepared to party with your neighbours.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013 via mobile

The hotel is perfectly situated, everything is within few minutes of walking distance - the beach, nightlife, restaurants, the old town....

This and most of the neighbouring hotels seem to be summer party hotels for scandinavian youth. They bring their own music and speakers on the balconies every night and the parties last till 1am when they move on to bars. Don't try to fight them (complaints at reception etc) since it doesn't really help much.... Join them or choose another hotel... :-)

Hotel was nice and clean, room was small but it wasn't a problem. There was a balcony, view wasn't very nice - other hotel was so close. Breakfast was same everyday, bread, eggs, cheese, ham, juice etc.
Location is very nice, short walk to the beach and close to the center of town.
Old town is amazing.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2012

We always stay in the Mandilara area of the new town, and having tried most of the hotels (and reviewed them) on here the Athena is definitely the best.

The fixtures and fittings and general decor etc is much newer than some of the 'tired' hotels. Nice and clean, great location (obviously), good sized rooms and balcony, decent bathroom, good lift. Nice bar area, friendly staff. Pool much better than the photos suggest. A decent size and quite deep. Plenty of loungers and you can get the sun most of the day if you move around a bit.

Air con is free (a rarity in hotels in this area). Safety deposit boxes the only 'payable'.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the Leontos street side, preferable a corner room onto Mandilara on a high floor...

Very close to the beach. There are good restaurants and shops just in the neighbourhood. If you prefer the Old Town for sightseeing or dinner, it is 10 minutes walking distance. Parking may be a very little problem; but you can find a suitable place in one or two blocks way. The pool and bar is enjoyable. You may have good time wihout leaving the hotel and around also..

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

We stayed here in the self-catering part of the hotel. The season hadn't really begun so it was very quiet. We had a few hiccups but the handyman came very quickly and rectified the problems.Receptionist obviously didn't want to be there, we were mostly greeted with a curt nod.The pool was small and despite it being early season we failed to get a bed in the sun any day.Luckily we didn't want to cook in our room as the facilities were pretty basic and the half size fridge was rather grubby. All in all it served it's purpose and I've stayed in worse hotels!

Location was good, although staff were very rude, unfriendly and unhelpful, even speaking greek to them made no difference. It was ok accomodation, but I was happy to be out of there after 3 long nights!
