I used to hotel for a 2 night stay. The hotel is close to Omonia subway and on a central road so my trip from the airport was fast and I felt safe. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, and also had a great sense of humor. The room super clean, although mattress was a bit too hard for my liking. Breakfast buffer was satisfying.
Very nice hotel with new lobby and refurbished rooms. Our first room had a non-functioning A/C. Hotel staff was there within two minutes to fix it. Unfortunately they couldn't, so they called the lobby to get us a new room, went and got the key, and took us to an upgraded room. It was a pain, but the staff was incredibly professional and accommodating. Breakfast buffet was awesome and quickly restocked even though very busy. Wifi has to be paid for unless you want to go to the lobby. I bought one day (two devices) and the wifi was very fast. We drank wine and streamed videos. The only downsides are noise, the walls, windows, and floors dont block much; and the upstairs restaurant, Olive Garden. We stopped in for an evening drink. I told the host that we'd like some drinks, and asked where we could sit. I picked a spot outside with a great view. We sat out there for 15 minutes appreciating the view without being served. Then we left. Otherwise the hotel itself is great, but other than the free buffet, I would eat outside at one of the many cafes, restaurants, bakeries, and souvlaki joints.
The Novotel staff were amazing. I asked for the iron it was brought to me immediately. My room was cleaned daily. The entire staff made me feel at home. I just had the most hassle free stay possible. A++ fantastic. Highly recommend Athens Novotel to everyone who wants to feel important and stress free.
The hotel is very close to the train station. It's very convenient if you are going to take early trains by Train OSE. Thr breakfast is good too.
The room is a little bit old but everything is clean. Hotel staff are very polite and helpful. One of them reminded us to be very cautious about our bags when we go out around this area.
The Delphi Art is an older hotel. Well kept up but showing its age in places. It is close to Omonia Station on the Athens Metro, so you can easily get anywhere from it. It is located in a seedy looking, graffiti covered neighborhood, but we never felt at all unsafe there. And there are some wonderful bakeries and restaurants nearby.
The rooms are small and the beds are hard. But the bathrooms are fine and the water is hot. The free breakfast is amazing and the staff were wonderful, one and all.
So, it's not a luxury stay, but it's a fine budget hotel.
In the city centre, Omonia Square is a busy traffic node, where six major roads meet. There is also a metro station. It is home to several large modern hotels, popular with tour groups, and is close to the National Archaeological Museum and the Central Market. Crowds traditionally gather here to celebrate national sporting victories.
