it was short stay

near local restaurants
it was short stay and the hotel don't have a lift so we have to carry our luggage all upto the second floor. It was an old building and not much to comment.

Good location.

Good location, free WIFI at hotel room, breakfast is good.
Hotel is abount 10 mins walk from Syntagma Square, there are restaurants, ice cream shop nearby the hotel, quite convenient. Breakfast provided is satisfied. However, the service provided from staff is not good. We checked out early in the morning about 5am to catch the early flight. The staff told us in not a good manner that we were too noisy at the lobby while we just made little noise when arranging our luggages. We were not happy about this bacause the staff himself was playing games making noise even louder than us.

Arethusa hotel

Breakfast was filling
Really...3 stars?? I actually took a loss to go to another hotel it was so bad. Furniture and room are extremely old and cheap. I don't think the staff is aware of what the rooms look like. Really is a waste of your $. We travel frequently and I think this was the worst in many years. They would not refund our $ for the next night even though I told them we could not stay here again. I chose to take the loss....that bad.

Location & value for money

Location, friendly & helpful staff, value for money
The hotel is right across the Syntagma square & Parliament building. I will definitely recommend it for its location - it's near everything! But please manage your expectations since it's a 3 star hotel but the room is clean & staff very helpful & friendly. Overall, 2 thumbs up!

Great location, average room standard

Near to tram and bus station, McD round the corner and lots of kiosk around, Baggage storage service
Location was great, but too bad I chose the wrong date and time to arrive at Athens. It was their national day and they were having parade at the Syntagma Square.All public transports to Syntagma was close, I can only go by foot from the metro station before Syntagma.Police blocks are everywhere and it they are very friendly to help.Lots of kiosk around the hotel selling snacks and drinks, McD is also just around the corner. We had to catch a 5am flight so did not get to enjoy the breakfast.The X95 bus from Syntagma-Airport is just 5mins away.We are returning to this hotel 2 days later and there is a luggage storage locker at the basement, with charge of 2euros per day which is convenient.The luggage slots are limited but not many people use this service.Police booth is also around the hotel which makes me feel safe even to walk around late at night.

Good location

Near to bus and metro station, convenience kiosk around the corner, baggage storage lockers
Returned to this hotel for another night after my Santorini trip.Stored my luggage here for 2 days which costs 4euros.Just took the X95 bus from airport and just 2-3mins walk to the hotel. Also 2-3mins walk from Syntagma metro station, where we took the metro to Acropolis. Although we booked for double room, but the staff claim that they do not have many double bed rooms and most probably you will get 2 single beds. Very small bathroom water splashing everywhere after taking a bath. Staff a bit arrogant probably due to their convenient location and high occupying rate. No kettles provided, and I chose to bring my own after reading reviews about staff refusing to provide hot water.

Chooi L. Couples Malaysia, June 11, 2014
Worst hotel not even worth a Star!

Very dated, very rude service special the middle age male receptionist .There is no kettle in the room, So when my friend was feeling not well and needed a cup of tea at 10pm I went downstairs ask if i can get hot water anywhere? Instead of being polite he didn't even look at me and said " At this time ? That's impossible!" The room is very dated the bed cover is so old that the stitches start falling apart. The supposed to be white towels are in light grey! The fridge (not mini bar!) was the biggest joke I have ever seen in any hotel!! There is a small key on top of the very small 80s TV. Turns out it was the key to open the dour of the fridge cabinet door where the TV sitting on top of it. Very safe fridge!!! Then the safety box is jam you can't even use it! So we have a room with a locked fridge and can't lock safety box!! The location is excellent with plenty of bars restaurant, cafe and walking distance to all the attraction. Airport bus are just 2 blocks away as well. But hey, I will not recommend this hotel at all based on my experienced. There at least 3 others hotel near there and one is Pan hotel just right opposite. So pick the location but avoid this one!
