"Excellent contemporary Hotel within a stones throw"
Taxi driver mystified about adderess but found it eventually - it is opposite the National Park next to the Acropolis - this taxi driver would not get a five star review however persanable he was. Excellent welcome desk with swift and efficient check in service and good local advice about restaurants and local features. Everything we wanted - Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum (an absolute must and probably woth visiting before you climb the rock to the Acropolis as it puts it all in context.
Room was excellent with promised Acroplis view from the front balcony (and also from the hotel's roof terrace). Everything clean and tidy - really good air conditioning and a comfortable bed meant a great night's sleep.
Breakfast was multi choice - plenty of range - I would like to have seen some gluten free options for the bread and the muesli but this is just a small quibble as there was plenty of other things to eat.
Nice looking pool which I didn't use.
Hotel provided excellent left luggage facility and arrranged our taxi to the ferry terminal after a morning's sightseeing. This time the taxi driver a knowledgable English speaking ex-engineer who added to our enjoyment on the way to Pireas with his background briefing on the economic crisis.

Our first stop of our honeymoon in Greece was at the AthensWas in Athens. We stayed there only one night and we felt bad because the service exceeding all our expectations. I had several questions before coming and they were all answered perfectly by the staff (Pol, Aris, Efterpi, Barbara).
The hotel was just opened so everything is modern and clean. Our Residence Suite are very nice with a great design with a nice balcony where we took some sparking wine. Wi-Fi was also very fast, the only time we saw that in a Greek Hotel.
Location couldn’t be better (in Plaka across the Acropolis and very close to the Parliament). They arranged private transfer from the airport and to the Piraeus the following day. We left early so they prepared us a very good breakfast to go. They also bought for us the ferry tickets and Acropolis tickets before we came. I will definitely come back when we get back to Athens.
I stayed in the hostel, not the studios. Location and price were perfect for me. Front desk was very helpful. They had secure lockers for a reasonable fee, so that I could drop my things off early in the morning and go sightseeing right away. There was a great walking tour through the hostel the day I arrived. Room was good, with its own bathroom and kitchen area. Bed was fine.
Airotel Parthenon is simply a convenient place to stay at if you're ever in Athens. The hotel room was clean and essentially had everything I needed. Additionally, free breakfast and Wi-Fi was provided, although the signal strength could have been better. Nevertheless, a five-minute walk away from the entrance of Acropolis and less than a few from the plethora of Plaka restaurants and stores, you can't go wrong!
The hotel was easy to reach by public transport from the airport, the staff were friendly and helpful, free Wi-Fi was available. The roof garden was just the best and you could see all of the sites from there. The menu was pretty expensive - we did not eat there but the drinks were reasonably priced.
Close to the Acropolis and Plaka. Perfect location. Hotel staff very accommodating. Wholesome breakfast but OJ too watery. Room tiny and outdated. This hotel can be one of the best if rooms were updated. This hotel is all about location and staff. Thank you, Philippos!
Nice hotel, but probably needs a little updating as the chairs in my room showed some wear. Was warm in the lobby, halls and elevator. Elevator was slow. Breakfast was excellent, with a nice variety of foods and choices of the local fare. Restaurant and the server was enjoyable and friendly with a great view of the Acropolis. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Arrived early after disembarking from a cruise. We were able to check in early. Room was spacious and comfortable. Staff was friendly as well as helpful. Breakfast was not included and thought price was expensive. Rooms had fridges and kitchen facilities so good place to stay if you are planning to stay for a period of time as can have breakfast in the room and if so inclined can also cook.

On the southern edge of Plaka, the pedestrianised archaeological promenade skirts the foot of the Acropolis, cutting between the pine-covered slopes of Filopappos Hill and Herodes Theatre (built 2 AD), hosting open-air performances through summer. Close by is the New Acropolis Museum, designed by Swiss architect Bernard Tschumi.
