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.

The location of Central Athens Hotel was indeed 'central'. It was close to the Acropolis, shopping areas and restaurants. The staff were friendly. There is an excellent view of the Acropolis from the terrace during the night. As we do not drink alcohol, the staff in the rooftop bar were happy to make coffee for us just the way we wanted it. We had a comfortable stay.

great hotel central to the Plaka”

You really don't need anything other than your feet to go anywhere in the Plaka if you stay at the Central Hotel. The only thing I would suggest is that you request a room on the 4th or 5th floors with a view of the Acropolis. The first 2 nights we had a room on the 2nd floor with a view of another window. When we returned, we had a 5th floor room which had stunning day and night views of the Acropolis! The staff at the hotel was phenomenal!!!

As a family of four the interconnecting room was ideal. Staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant/bar has great views and very reasonable priced food. The only issue we had as that there were loud scrapping of chair on floor noises late into the night and early in the morning that kept us awake/woke us up - we were on the 5th floor so don’t think this was from the hotel restaurant/bar...adjacent property maybe?

Great location! Right in the middle of everything, historical sites are within a few minutes walk and lots of places to eat and drink nearby. The hotel is clean and has very good breakfast. The super-nice, friendly and helpful staff is worth mentioning!! Unfortunately, the roof terrace with the amazing view is being renovated and not available… Also, the bathroom door doesn't give full privacy.
