Reviewed 11 October 2017

First, I am an American, traveling in Europe for the first time. The entrance is gorgeous as are the three restaurants. The Olive Restaurant on the roof has one of the BEST views of the city by far. You can see about 3/4 of the skyline including the Acropolis. Their desserts are excellent. We didn't have dinner, though the entrees looked good.

We stayed two nights before a cruise and one night after. The first time we were on the fourth floor. The carpet in the hallway near the stairway was rippled and needed replacing or restretching! There was no street noise because it faced a court yard. However, we could hear the television from the room next door and conversations in the hall and furniture moving overhead. Since we were jet lagged and really needed sleep, this was aggravating! Last night was on the 8th floor, an upgraded room with a balcony. Very nice view, but still could hear the noise from above and the next door and hallway.

Last I must address the bathrooms. First there are no washclothes! Not sure what that is about. The floors are a beautiful marble, but the tubs are high to get into (I have two replaced knees so getting in and out of a shower/tub is hard anyway.) When you get out, the floor is about 2 inches lower than the tub. There is no handle to hold on to as you get out so I held on to the doorknob. Everything went well until my wet foot slipped on the marble. I did have a towel down, but I landed hard. I hit my hand against the sink and broke a nail well into the nailbed and tore ligaments in the other finger. I was fortunate to not have hit my head or broken an arm or leg when I landed.

The breakfast was typical breakfast fare with wonderful breads, nuts, fruits, eggs, cheeses, sliced meats etc. Everythng is self serve--even the drinks. But it was very nice.

The hotel is about 2 1/2 blocks from a metro station and also about the same distance from a hop on hop off bus. Some of the side streets are kind of seedy and we were worned by a local that it is a drug area.

With all that said, I think we will be staying elsewhere should we return.

Room Tip: The higher up the better for a good view if you are on a street side.

This hotel is a total dump. The pictures they show are only of the renovated rooms, which are not readily available. Staff is inefficient and lazy. The breakfast was decent and the view from the rooftop restaurant is nice, but there are much better places to stay in Athens. RUN FROM THIS HOTEL!

Dear Guest,

The last couple of years we have renovated most of the rooms and our intention is to renovate the rest, in order to provide our visitors with the highest possible level of customer satisfaction.

We would also like to inform you that we present both our renovated and non-renovated rooms on our website, please feel free to recheck the photo gallery.

We sincerely hope that we will be able to restore your confidence and welcome you back again in the near future, offering you a memorable Titania Experience!

Kind regards,

The biggest plus about the location of the Titania is its proximity to central Athens. The biggest minus about its location are the sex shops just across the street, and the rougher crowd of Omonia Square. I was warned by several experienced travellers to Greece to be wary in that district.

The public spaces of the Omonia are generally very well decorated. The rooftop Olive Garden restaurant and lounge is a great place to enjoy life.

The breakfast buffet is a typical Continental breakfast. It was good, but not excellent. The room itself is a bit shopworn since it serves both travellers and conference attendees.

There are three tiers, if you will, of rooms: The rooms on the lower floors SERIOUSLY NEED RENEWAL. On our inbound to Greece visit, we stayed on the fourth floor. The carpet in the hallway was OLD. We also had a "courtyard" (interior of the property) view, which was nowhere as nice as the streetside views.

When we stayed on our departure from Greece, we stayed on the eighth floor, and had a streetside view. The difference in the quality of the rooms is the difference between three and four stars for this hotel.

Finally, even if the hotel advertises itself as non-smoking, don't believe it. You could smell smoke on both the fourth and eighth floors, and the "Olive Garden" (yes, that's its name) rooftop restaurant had ashtrays out!

Room Tip: Ask for a streetside room above the sixth floor!

Amazing hotel. Upscale. Views and balconies in many of the rooms. My daughter stayed there a few weeks ago..months after we did. She thought the same thing. Continental breakfast opens (I think) around 5:30. Wonderful full brunch opens later. Our TV had a USB port in it so if you don't have a charger have no fear. The staff is friendly and helpful. HIghly recommended.

Room Tip: TV has USB port in it but you must keep the TV on.

We were assigned a room on the 9th floor. It had a balcony which provided a terrific view of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Rooms are well maintained and very clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nourishing complimentary breakfast.

This hotel is located in the business district of the City. The Metro is a short walk away...so easy to reach the main historical sites throughout the City. (The Acropolis is just two stops away on the Metro.) Also within a short walk, is the Parliament Buildings to watch the hourly Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Close to a large park area and a children's library if you have youngsters travelling with you.

Close to excellent restaurants and shopping. Certainly would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Higher floors seem to be in better condition that those located on lower floors.
