Located very close to two tube stops and 3 minutes walk from Syntagma Square, this hotel proved to be good value for money. As we had stayed there during non-peak period, we were upgraded to a very pleasant and modern room with a double bed, which was very comfortable. The rates were reasonable and my only quip was that wifi...

Stayed here with a tour group and found it to be quite reasonable. Rooms were spacious and clean and the view from the rooftop during the day but especially at night was beautiful, you could even see the acropolis. Location was reasonable, it's only a matter of a few minutes walk to the metro.

Hotel is located between 2 metro stops and makes it very easy to get to other parts of the city in no time. Breakfast is nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful. My double room was excellent, with king size bed and a sofa for guests. Totally worthed the value for the service and accomodation.

Rooms were a regular size. Nothing special. Central location, not far from Syntagma Square, just 4 metro stops. Descent breakfast served. Rooftop bar and pool which over looks athens, including views of the Acropolis and Parthenon. Front desk was helpful. Seemed like a very busy hotel.

I have stayed at the Candia six summers since 2007. Each stay was about 12-14 days. The staff of the hotel are exceptional. From the front desk to the maids there is not only a singular professionalism but, even better, personal attention and geniality. This is not at all an impersonal institution. On the contrary, you can begin to discover...

The Candia is slightly out of the centre of Athens near Larissa Railway Statiom (3 metro stops from Syntagma Square). It seems very popular with tour groups and is clean, bright and friendly. The desk staff are all very helpful. Despite criticisms elsewhere, the breakfast is very adequate, with hot and cold choices, which the staff refill continuously (including a...

The hotel is just 300 metres from Larissa Metro and is by the main road. So even though the area looked a little dodgy the journey to the hotel from the metro station felt safe. There is a mosque right in front of the hotel so plus points for Muslim travelers and its not far from Omonia Metro Station which...

Hotel was clean, ok size double, roof top pool and bar were best features of hotel. On the subway easy to get to but a difficult walk through roughish areas to get to the city centre overall a good experience.
