I am not sure how they got a 4 star rating it was 3 at best. My room looked nothing like the photos on the website. I was a single and they put me in a room with 3 twin beds cramed in with little room to walk. The bedding had the ugliest orange blankets that were old and gross. The did bring me a new blanket when asked. The location is excellent, walk right to the Acropolis the new museum, Zuess and more. Righ in the heart of Plaka the town for shopping and dining just outside your door. The airport is about 40-50 minutes away and a 50Euro cab ride. Ferry port is about 10-15 min away and cost about 35Euro for a taxi. Breakfast was good and offered a wide selection. Customer service was good. Free Wifi only worked in the lobby. Lobby good use some updated. If your lloking for a good cost hotel with a good central location this is perfect.

Horrible hotel, it was disgusting! Don't know how it got so many great reviews.

It should not be rated 4 stars at all, it should be a 1 or 2 star.
Don't know why I wasted my money on this hotel, could have got the same quality in a hostel!!!!

It's in a gOod location

Down the street of orange trees you will arrive at Hotel Parthenon. We stayed here for our honeymoon. Yoda at reception was absolutely lovely. Very helpful and friendly. She even arranged a special early breakfast for us on check-out due to our early flight and kept us informed on the election and Euro 2012 soccer results.

Room is nice and clean with natural wood and brown colours. There is an old safe that uses a key (not pin coded).

Location is great, walking distance to the train station, many restaurants, shops and around the corner from the Acropolis and its museum.

Fyi, from the airport catch the Egaleo line, get off at Syntagma (about 40min), then catch the Aghios Dimitrios line for one stop to Akropoli and you can walk to the hotel. No need to waste money on a taxi even with luggage.

The hotel is within walking distance to most if not all of the archaelogical sites (like Acropolis/Parthenon, Temple of Zeus, Hadrian's Library, Ancient Agora). This is very convenient because during Summer it gets so hot, so it's nice to be able to stroll 'home' to have a cold shower then come out again! The Plaka with it's restaurants and cafes are within 1-2 minutes walk too.

It is located less than 1-2 minutes from Acropoli metro station which connects you to anywhere you want to go in Athens.

The rooms are good. Nothing to complain about. Clean bed sheets, clean towels, excellent airconditioning for sweltering hot days. Not noisy so could get a good night's sleep every time.

Hotel staff/receptionists are great too. Could recommend many restaurants in the area and provided assistance with anywhere we wanted to go. Although we didn't have too many questions because you'll realise that everything is just around the corner. (Just turn left when you walk out of hotel!!)

Will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.
