Top class views and location”

The views from the roof bar are something to behold. It’s in a great location and good value for money. The rooms are pretty snug, but for the price, location and views, I wouldn’t complain. We had a bottle of local liquor complementary in our room, which was lovely. The restaurant on roof, Theas, is beautiful with gorgeous seats, fantastic views and brilliant service.

Excellent location, right in the heart of Plaka”

Location was excellent, Rooms were clean, Rooftop view was amazing

We stayed at the Central Athens Hotel in Dec'14, and was initially skeptical of the place. It was a 10 min walk from the train station, and the exterior was unassuming. However, once we entered into the hotel, the place was clean and inviting. The rooms were cosy, and well maintained. The best parts of the hotel are the rooftop terrace, which has a splendid unobstructed view of the Acropolis, and the location. We were literally 3 turns away from the heart of Plaka. 2 things that were a let down though... The lift was tiny, and frequently broke down, and the breakfast was normal.

Fantasic location, fantastic hotel...”

This hotel is located in the excellent Plaka area (old town) of Athens, very near to Syntagma Square. The rooms are nice and the staff are friendly, but the best bit about this hotel is the roof bar with incredible views of the Acropolis. Watching the sun set over Athens from the rooftop Jacuzzi is also a great way to start your evening off.

Located within minutes of the Acropolis.”

This hotel is located downtown Athens within walking distance to everything. You can be at the Acropolis in a 10 minute walk and you can be in plaka in 5 minutes and there are tons of restaurants and shops in the area. From our room we could see the Acropolis and there's also a rooftop bar and restaurant that has an amazing view of the Acropolis especially at night when it's all lit up. Very beautiful and very romantic and I highly recommend this hotel.
