Loizos from Cyprus

Very clean. Staff super friendly as compared to other Greeks. Room was big and the rooftop garden is fantastic with a good view of the acropolis. No need to pay for a rooftop bar. Just buy your own drinks up and you will be surprised I am sure.

Clean quiet handy to the centre of town. Easy to get the bus from the airport and get off at the square and see the hotel sign and short qalj to hotel. Breakfast simple but good. Was very happy with my choice. Elevator is small but gets you to your floor.

Close to the metro station, and within walkable distance to most of the attractions in Athens. Great value for the location.

Walk up the hill 150 m to the airport bus. So easy.

Very convenient. The airport bus goes to Syntagma square, you cross the park diagonally and walk 100 metres downhill to its big sign.

        The hotel is perfectly located,just 100m away from the bus terminal to airport which runs 24 hours, lots of restaurants around the hotel, walking distance to the shopping ermou street ,plaka and tourist spot like acropolis. The restaurant - the Greco's project diagonally opposite the hotel serve best souvlaki and gyros that we have tried in both Athens and Santorini, the meat is tender and juicy and best thing,it's not pricey!

        The property location was excellent it was very close to Syntagma Square and the bus station. The room was big and the beds comfy with a bar fridge and aircon . The hotel was walking distance to the Acropolis and some of the other historical sites. The hotel was ideal for what we required. We were able to catch the express bus X95 to the airport from Syntagma Square for €6 each and it dropped us off at the international airport departures, which was cheaper than an airport transfer or taxi which would of cost about €35.

        The room was big enough for 3 pax with breakfast. Surrounded by nice cafes. We walk to everywhere - Acropolis, Kerameikos, Plaka.. Ermou shopping street is just behind our hotel. Good place with traditional lift.. believe is the same mostly in Europe.

        Arethusa is located right in middle of all the buzz in Athens. It's a 2 minute walk from the Syntagma metro station, 20 minutes from the Acropolis, 10 min walk to the Monastiraki Square and flea market. Very close to Plaka as well. We walked everywhere from the hotel because of the location. It's also close to places where one can shop. The staff are very polite. They gave us a map and showed us the streets we could walk on.

        One night in Athens ”
        Excellent location and value. It’s not fancy but it is clean and a reasonable size. We booked the triple room because it was a good deal. It was a bit larger than a standard room and had a tub/shower combo. The bathroom was a bit bigger because of the tub and we actually had a vanity with the sink instead of just a sink like most bathrooms. Overall very pleased.

        VALUE FOR MONEY & IDEAL LOCATION”
        We stayed 1 more night(1 double and 1 triple rooms) in this hotel after a superb trip to Santorini. It was Easter weekend and we booked in time to get a reasonable rate. The friendly staff was so kind to accomodate our request by putting five of us up in two adjacent rooms. Free breakfast was provided! The hotel is ideally located and within walking distances to all major tourist sites..... bus stop to airport etc. There are a number of good resatuarants nearby, including two Chinese's. The only negative is the small bedroom and bathroom. Nevertheless, we will come back to this hotel if we are in Athens in the future.

        Excellent location near to Syntagma Square(Parliament House). Last stop of X95 airport bus. Close to to all major tourist sites and shopping districts. Good restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Friendly staff and good continental/British breakfast provided. The nightly rate was very reasonable in March. We had two triple rooms and the rooms are considerably small, (big enough for 3 Asians). The bathrooms are small however all heating systems worked fine. This hotel has secured storage compartments charging 2 Euro/per usage. Good as a transit point to visit Greek islands, Santorini etc.

        Do you want to be in the HEART of Athens and be able to snoop 'til you droop or shop 'til you drop and not pay so much for your room you have to shop only the flea markets? Is your destination Athens or a hotel? If you want Athens and all it offers, book a room at the Arethusa Hotel. If you want frills to keep you in the hotel and off the streets, go to Las Vegas. Do you want a spa, pool, gym, and hot towels - stay home! The Arethusa will provide everything you need PLUS an outstanding breakfast! Eleni, the Pearl of the Agean Sea, will give you the most professional front desk experience you will ever have. You will see the best managed breafast operation in Europe, and it's free! You even get a real window you can open to get fresh air! Outstanding!

        The hotel is friendly. Quite minimal facilities and bit dark, but who needs them with a location this fantastic! The dim lighting was ac tally helpful for getting some sleep in between late night street side meals and beers, and early morning hikes around town. I'd stay here again.
