                                                  • Ideal location and good Value. Very friendly and helpful staff, well maintained rooms, food was excellent and reasonable price.

                                                    Loved that hotel is not in a main tourist area, breakfast is not much to be honest.

                                                    The beds were lumpy and the bedsheets were unclean and smelly.

                                                    Quality of breakfast difficult to identify any management/ and staff is awful.

                                                  • Great location to explore Athens, the most friendly staff in any hotel I have been to before and the rooms are very clean and the beds. The indoor/outdoor restaurant is excellent and the included continental breakfast is delicious.

                                                    Service is awful.

                                                  • Location and friendly staff, clean hotel, good for the price. The service was excellent, on our first day the receptionist gave us directions to a popular part of Athens and fortunately, my rooms in Mykonos and Santorini were beautiful. The complimentary breakfast was tasty.

                                                    Broken equipment in bathroom.

                                                  • Convenient to historic sites and just few steps away to the subway. Nice and quiet hotel, the price was quite reasonable, the younger staff at Rio Athens were very friendly and helpful. The guest rooms were spotless, the bar was the best and the complimentary breakfast was lacking in anything that looked edible.

                                                    Grafitti and old buildings all around its new facade, ugly lobby. This place is disgusting and filthy, ok accomodation air conditioning very poor.

                                                    Rude, dishonest manager and staff.

                                                    In summary, the room charges is just not worth the price.
