Chic Hotel
Ranked #32 of 55 Athens B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 October 2012

Although some visitors have complained, I found this hotel quite good. Clean, modern and for the money an absolutely bargain. Only stayed one night, and must admit the room was small, but worth the very sensible cost of about 50E.

If you do stay there, don't miss out a fantastic restaurant just down the alley - leaving the lobby, turn left on Menandrou and head toward the Psirri Square (get a map from the friendly staff). It's just a 10-minute stroll, and although the neighborhood is not exactly 5th Avenue, it's not too scary, either.

Head for Taverna Orea Penteli and try their Gyro Chicken - it's probably the best meal I've had in Greece - and that says a whole lot!

Also, don't miss out Chic Hotel's roof terrace. A late afternoon there with your favorite drink and company - or just a good book - will be a good memory. No bar, no lights, so bring your own.

Room Tip: Some traffic noise, but close the windows and turn on the a/c.

This is one of the best hotels we have stayed in for a long time. On our recent trip we stayed in various hotels in Rome, Pisa, Sicily, Crete and Athens. This was the best of the lot (the hotel in Sicily was apparantly 5* but the Chic hotel was better).
The room was much bigger than I expected. A huge flat screen tv, air-con and the coolest bathroom I have ever seen in a hotel.
The staff were so friendly and helpful (and easy on the eye).
Breakfast was your typical continental breakfast but again was much better than the 5* Sicilian hotel.
Also, free WiFi all over the hotel.
Alot of people comment about the area, and it is true that it does seem very dodgy day and night but we never got into any trouble. The hotel is very close to the Omonoia metro station and that is only one stop to the main shopping areas and two stops to the Acropolis.
We really enjoyed this hotel and will definitely be back there again. Highly, highly recommended.

Only stayed for one night but felt very welcome from the staff since walking in the hotel. Very easy to find and very central location. The receptionist was so helpful, gave us tips where to eat and where to go. Free wi-fi is always a big plus in hotels while on holiday. Breakfast was nice and fresh. Would stay again!

Central Athens, easy walking to all principal sites of interest, breakfast fine and late, most helpful staff. Archeological Musem a must, Numatiicist Museum interesting, Ask prices at venues before you sit down, a beer 500cl can be two or six Euros. In the same vein some Greeks are very miserable at the moment, but shrug it off, some great places and smiling faces!

Room Tip: No views functional, no pool no gym
