          • Couple
            7.4

            Very pleasant hotel for short break. Value for money.

            There was 1 lady at the reception who was quite rude on our arrival.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            Fab rooftop view of Acropolis and generous buffet breakfast

            Hotel was hard to find - clearer map/directions needed for those coming via Metro.

          • Single
            10.0

            Nice, spacious and clean rooms. Big variety in breakfast. Very helpful and kind personnel. Close to the center of Athens, only 2 stops away by metro.

          • Couple
            7.8

            Had a very nice breakfast (more than just croissants), ac was very cool

            Was a good 5-10 minute walk from Metro station, through a part of town that seemed dark and dirty (although everyone said that it was a "great" part of town)

          • Family with children
            9.4

            Very well located hotel.It was clean and quiet despite the noise outside the streets of Athens. Usually, I've back pain in the hotels. This time I had a very comfortable sleep. Strongly recommend to go up to he roof bar at night and take a chair in front of the Acropolis.The price is just great! It was wonderful experience. Next time, when I'll be in Athens I'll make sure to book this hotel again.

            I would've preferred an open dinner restaurant at the roof bar.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            Localization and pool. Old rooms but confortable

            The reception service was not very good.No Credit card accepted and forced to make payment in cash.The owner wont even let pay by bank transfer. The hotel information should say no card payments

          • Couple
            7.8

            Helpful staff

            Wifi didn't work in the room, location isn't that good - 10min walking from nearest metro station, quite far away from tourist attractions

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Very hard to find with an address only. Needs a map. Very seedy area, but close to train station & Acropolis.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            We were within walking distance to the Acropolis site. Price was in our range. We arrived far early of typical check in times from the ferry, staff were very accomodating. We waited in lobby maybe 30 min.s for our room to be ready, so we could leave our things in a secure location, rather than car while we do the sight seeing. Lovely roof top terraces, one side for sun bathers, another sheltered with views of acropolis - very enjoyable.

            Room was clean, but too much fragrance, thankfully the window opens, and we could tone it down. Parking = some spots reserved on street front, keep your fingers crossed.

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Excellent rooftop terrace, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good.

            The surrounding neighborhood was a little questionable, but there were a few streets close by that had good restaurants. Only five blocks from the Metro station. If you are going to Athens on holiday, you only need two nights, three nights tops. We stayed four and it was too much.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            The roof terrace with a beautiful view of the city and the Acropolis is really great and open almost all day. If you ask, you can even enjoy meals there. At breakfast there is wide variety of products. , whether you like traditional Greek, English or International breakfast.

            Hardly any ventilation in the bathroom, making it hot and moist in there. We did not like the "microwave" dinner meals from the simple menu (like on the roof terrace - if you haven't made dinner reservations that's all you can choose from). The hotel wasn't easy to find from the subway station, we had to ask several people for help, but we managed after a while.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            Fabulous value, very clean and nice hotel. Great location close to metro and close to Acropolis. Very friendly and helpful staff.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            Safe neighborhood within walking distance to the Acropolis and Plaka neighborhoods. Only two metro stops to Syntagma square. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Good value.

            Staff was not overly helpful about things to do or places to eat, so we were on our own. The manager tried to help our friend who had her wallet stolen on the metro, but the staff later tried to charge us money for the collect calls that the manager allowed us to make. It made for an uncomfortable situation.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            The Hotel Illissos is close to the touristic areas like Acropolis and Plaka, although being already in the more business-oriented district of Athens. Service & rooms were very ordinarily.

          • Couple
            10.0

            We enjoyed our stay in room 609 and Mr. Alex was an awesome host. He was very kind and hospitable. We travelled through 10 counteries of Europe in our tour and didn't receive such warm welcome as we received from Mr. Alex we will definitly recommend to other friends and vl stay when we visit Athens again and all this credit goes to the hospitality of Mr. Alex... Please pay him our regards and extend him our thanks. He is highly recommended to be the employee of the year. He was the best of your employees. Feel free to contact me in case of any further queries.
