The bar on the rooftop is above fabulous! During our stay in Athens we kept going back and every time it was great! Chillig during the day with coffee and fresh juice or drinking cocktails by night, it was awesome each time! And the view... We were in love.

Stayed here on a business trip, Jan-Feb time so a bit chilly in Athens! This hotel is above one of the metro stations so you can easily get here direct from the airport on the metro. Well situated near the Flea Market tourist district, and the view from the rooftop restaurant (where breakfast is served) is fab. Walking distance to...

Incredible view to the Akropolis! Nice rooms, modern, at night the restaurant works like bar, excellent music, with a deck with a view to the Akropolis. Also, the hotel is in a great location, in front at Metro, and near Plaka (historic place).

We stayed in A for Athens for 5 nights. It's right in the middle of everything so it was perfect for us. It's a 2-min walk to the metro. Just step outside and you'd be spoilt for choice for food. We went up to the Acropolis via metro and ended up near the hotel on our way down! Don't be...

The hotel boasts the warm welcome and ambience. Effusively welcomed and assisted by the concierge team who took care of our LV suitcases and numerous shopping bags very well. Housekeepers delivered prompt and efficient service and were ready to clear our room after called for this additional service during the day. Slightly disappointed with the front office who refused to...

I love Athens and being at A for Athens Hotel. Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle and vibrancy of the tourist district. Practically walk to everything you want to see and do. A bit noisy but the pay off is worth the ear plugs. The Acropolis view is breathtaking. The rooftop dining is perfect. The food wonderful....

Overlooking the Monastiraki Square with the Acropolis looming in the background, the location of this hotel is by far the best we saw (we were in Athens a few days earlier and had walked into 3-4 hotels around the Acropolis to check out rooms and find "the perfect" hotel to stay at for our anniversary). Try and get the rooms...

I saw on trip advisor A For Athens was a good place for drinks. Right in Monastiraki square so close to my hotel. The two bartenders Theo and Theo were great! My drinks were made with passion and creativity! I have traveled many places but these two bartenders were superb! Next time in Athens I will definitely go for drinks...

Staying in Psirri / Gazi

Neighbourhood Profile
Psirri / Gazi
Side-by-side neighbourhoods Psirri and Gazi provide some of the city’s prime nightlife. The almost claustrophobic streets of Psirri feature an interesting blend of original small businesses with the restaurants, cafés and bars that have recently sprouted up. The central artery of Agion Anargiron Street has lively places to eat or drink. Further west, you can visit the peaceful ancient cemetery of Keramikos, then cross busy Pireos Street to find yourself in Gazi. With the huge Technopolis performance and art complex converted from old gasworks at its heart, you really have to come at night to appreciate this maze of bars at its best, although a daytime stroll will allow you to admire the excellent street art.
