Location Friendly staff
The hotel is absolutely beautiful, from the stylish modern lobby to the sleek, well-appointed rooms. We were on our honeymoon and the staff went out of their way to make it special. They upgraded us to a suite with a view of the Acropolis and sent us welcome drinks and snacks. They also recommended a fabulous restaurant (Dionysus) and made us a reservation for a beautiful table. There was a lovely breakfast buffet included in the price of the room and we enjoyed eating at the hotel restaurant and having drinks at the intimate on-site bar. Overall, this was an excellent experience and we would absolutely stay there again. We didn't want to leave!
This place had a nice "local" vibe. The staff was super helpful and accommodating. They were more than happy to point out good places to eat and places to see. We checked in very late, around 10 pm, which the staff accommodated. The hotel lobby is really nice. Our room was located off the rooftop balcony (which has a view of the Acropolis) It was the quietest place we stayed on our two week trip. The room was good sized, the bed comfortable, and everything was clean. The bathroom was about average for size compared to other places we stayed. There was a kitchenette in the room. The rooftop sitting area was really nice. There was not breakfast included in the price of the room. However, a delicious, reasonably priced breakfast is available. The fresh squeezed orange juice was fantastic. It was probably the second best breakfast of the trip! Overall, highly recommended, especially if you don't have a car! Parking. When we got there the parking area was closed for some unknown reason and the hotel staff could not locate anyone to open it. We ended up parking on the street, which took forever to find a spot. The hotel is in a narrow alley and can be hard to locate. It could have a more prominent sign to make finding it easier! (we drove by it the first time)
Close to metro station and old city sites. Worked well for us as an overnight stay to get to see things quickly with rapid transit to the airport in the morning. Family room for 4 worked like a charm - very clean and neat 'basic' accommodation. We were pleased to find the hot plate worked well for us to have a cup of tea even. Great cost for a family of 4. We needed to leave on the metro a half hour before breakfast was supposed to be available but the staff said the cold cereal and juice continental breakfast wouldn't be available for us. After going out and buying something on the street I actually found that it was available. The service was marked down as 'fair' because of this. The shower curtain was also barely long enough to go around the rail so water gets on the floor. A bit more length would have been good to keep things dry. Beware that the map provided by the internet link from 'Booking.com' may lead you to the wrong place. The location is actually quite close to the metro station and in a safe part of town (the map led us to a place further away and in a less safe part).
Staff were great. Helped us find secure parking and met us at the square to help us bring luggage to the hotel. They were great with advice on the best paths to take through the Acropolis and where to eat. Room was comfortable with a great view. Breakfast was a bit ordinary with only jam for the bread (though we had scrambled eggs one morning. Wasn't a problem for us as we had an apartment and so took breakfast to our room and added to it. If you are close to the bar on the roof the noise of other guests returning to their rooms can make it difficult to sleep.
Nice studio for family- Good locataion to metro- nice people. Clean. Good price.
Staff really nice and welcoming
The location was superb. We loved sitting on the roof-top terrace and looking out over the Parthenon. Good internet access. As this is a hostel, it is very loud, louder than any hostel I know. The staff are all international travelers themselves, not trained in hotel service. I had written ahead asking for an early check-in since our 12- hour flight was getting in the am. The reply didn't address my question but simply stated that they looked forward to our arrival. An early check- in wasn't available. In fact, our room was not even ready at the designated check-in. We had gone to eat, returning at check-in time, only to sit in the lobby for another hour while they finally got around to cleaning our room. I would not recommend this hostel for a first night after a long international flight. There was no art in our room as the website indicated. Not an "art hostel"
For a hostel, it is very nice and seems to have a good community, nice staff. The free washer and dryer is a major plus. The online presence of this establishment was very misleading. I expected it to be a proper hotel, especially for the price I paid. It is a hostel (a good one, but still a hostel). The quality of our single room for the price required was pretty unacceptable. It was clean, but extremely spartan in furnishings and honestly a little sad. If you are in your early twenties and traveling, stay here. If you are looking for something a little nicer, I could not recommend.
Location was very convenient, although run down. Plumbing. For 90€ with a minimalist self-service continental "breakfast" for two, it was not worth it considering the Amalia at Syntagma was going for 120€ with far superior rooms, service and a full English breakfast for two. Good for backpackers, but bookings.com should not advertise this as a hotel. At best a pension.
Good, clean basic hostel and near to Acropolis and tourist district. It has a roof top balcony with superb evening views of Acropolis. The noise factor. The stairway is located close to all rooms and it acts like an amplifier causing loud disturbance from late night revellers.
My wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary here, and I am so glad we didn't choose the boring hotel up in the Kolonaki district. The staff at AthenStyle were fun, friendly and knowledgeable. We stayed in a self-catering room which had it's own balcony and view of Parthenon which was amazing. Christian's Mojitos were too strong - Sofia's were just right!!!
Fantastisk takterasse med nydelig utsikt mot Akropolis. Hyggelige medarbeidere, både i resepsjonen og på takterassen. Litt slitte rom.
Frokosten var bedre en ventet, men ikke rikholdig. Utsikten fra vårt rom var utmerket (minus for bakgård), men ikke fra andre rom. Takterrasse med praktfull utsikt. Frokost på terrassen (dessverre kun 1 dag). Gratis safe på rommet. Litt dårlig bordkapasitet ved frokosten i 1.etasje. Bør stå at frokost blir servert på takterrassen bare ved fint vær. Dusjen på rommet, bør kunne sette opp dusjslangen i ståhøyde. Ikke akkurat moderne bad. Utsikt til bakgården. Litt harde madrasser.
Det var helt greit. Ikke noe å utsette på rommet, Største attraksjon er takrestauranten med flott utsikt til Akropolis. God og allsidig frokost. Minibar kan brukes som kjøleskap for vannflaske. Har CNN på tv. Nei, i grunnen ikke.
Jeg opplevde dette som et dårlig hotell, med lite hyggelig personale og det var faktisk lopper i senga! Ingen kaffe eller te om kvelden, de hadde lukket takterrassen, og lopper i senga.
beliggenhet helt nær strand trangt bassengområde
