what sort of hotel charges your credit card and then gives your rooms away? then puts the blame on the guest. Arethusa hotel Athens that's who. Very unprofessionally run and the management and staff are exceptionally rude and degrading to guests

Very good location right next to Syntagma square from where you can get to by metro or airport bus (1 hour). Professional crew and smooth check-in. Bathroom excellent. Sleeping room a bit cold - in March. Cleaning crew let the window open after cleaning resulting in a cold room at night ... Breakfast good. All in all a nice stay...

Central hotel,quite clean, very close to everything (market, restaurants, Plaka, metro stations, etc), but it desperately needs to be refurnished. The furniture in my room were really old (probably from the 70's). Only the bathroom and the TV set were new. The breakfast was below average.

Chose this hotel for its location as so close to the airport bus stop so v easy to walk with suitcases. Had a single room -perfect for one person. Shame they don't make use of the rooftop area from where there are amazing views of the Acropolis. Breakfast was great and would definitely stay again.

The location of this hotel is unbeatable. It is right on Syntagma Square and very easy to get to from the airport. It was walking distance for us to get to all the attractions and there were lots of restaurants and bars around. The room itself was clean and functional. The furniture was dated but that didn't bother us at...

Felt like I was staying at some hostel....the shower head didn't even work! Beds were uncomfortable. More like a 1 star hotel to be truthful. The breakfast was decent. Staff were friendly, and location was central. But the hotel room itself left a lot to be desired.

Ok, the location is good especially since I should go with the airportbus early in the morning and its just 5 minutes to Syntagma. But the room... ok it was cheap but still... felt like a hostel rather than a hotel.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
