        • Location is quite central and hotel is clean and pleasant. The service is great, very professional and courteous, the wired internet connection is charged by the minute and works well, the staff is happy to pick up a meal at a local restaurant.

          Room was pretty small and breakfast was poor.

        • Excellent location convenient to everything, near all the monuments and not too far from the shopping streets as well. The hotel looks really nice, low price and the staff were pleasant and the lobby large. Service was really good and the concierge/receptionists were very helpful. The bed was huge, the computers for free use by the guests was handy as we did not bring our own equipment and the breakfast buffet had a great selection of food.

          The bathroom was very tiny, the bar wasn't open and we never saw other people up there.

        • Great location in the plaka and syntagma Square is bus stop for x95. The central hotel is modern and the staff is very friendly. Room is nice and clean, the rooftop bar is lovely, breakfast is also pretty good.

          This place just does not have its act together, the actual street is on, isn't much to look at and the bathroom also only had a half door and the elevator is a bit small.

        • Clean, friendly and good location, just a few minutes walk from 2 different train Stations, the narrow one way streets of Athens can be trying. Central hotel is very practical and the staff couldn't have been any more helpfull. The beds are really comfortable, the rooftop jacuzzi is wonderful and breakfast is fine.

          Mediocre stay, definitely not worth the premium price and an electric kettle in the room would also be great. The only elevator is also ultra tiny, the complimentary wine is disgusting.
