                UNBEATABLE LOCATION”

                I travel to Greece every year for a couple of months and only stay at the Arethusa. The staff are beyond reproach and the rooms and bathrooms are extremely clean. It is within walking distance to a number of sights, beautiful churches and fantastic shopping precinct. Although I have in the past stayed in much more expensive hotels I have found that the Arethusa feels like home and this draws me back here year in year out. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT

                Was surprised how nice and clean hotel was! Location absolutely fantastic in the middle of city centre and close to everything! Free buffer breakfast was good too! I would say this is like the U.K. Premier inn equivalent but this hotel is much cleaner and cheaper surprisingly with added free breakfast and brilliant location. I would visit again and highly recommend to family and friends! Want to say thank you to Helen at reception and Rosa the cleaner for there exceptional job! Also the ladies in the cafeteria for breakfast looked after us immensely! Last point during Covid-19 there was a laboratory 1 minute walk which cost 60 euros which Helen at the desk informed me about and she called them on my behalf to book an appointment. Thank you very much Arethusa hotel for the pleasant stay and your fantastic staff, I actually stayed for 11 days and surprisingly enjoyed it :)

                Centrally located within walking distance from all the important places to visit. A few meters from Syntagma square which has direct route to the airport by metro. Tons of restaurant nearby just outside the hotel. The hotel is reasonably priced considering its location and facilities. Breakfast is included and food is good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room has all the basic necessities and it get cleaned everyday. Can't really fault this place, we enjoyed staying here and will chosse this place again if we come re-visit Athens.

                Hotel is close to Sintagma square. There are many restaurants, metro station, gift shops and most POI can be reached on foot. My room had high ceiling, working cooling. If you are looking for a fancy room, you probably could be disappointed but for me it was spacious so the room was fine. Noise from a street is lower than ear plugs block and there are no music clubs neighboring. Breakfast is only OK but the coffee terrific. Overall I was happy to stay there during 4 nights tourist trip.
