“Very nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2012

Very nice hotel. Centrally located, very close to Metro station. Although the area is not the best in Athens, there was no time that we didn't feel safe or that we felt insecure. Free parking is a huge bonus. Nice, clean rooms, good breakfast. We would definitely recommend.

Had a nice stay at Novus. Being new the hotel is really clean and modern. Don't read too much into comments on the area it's no worse than any English city. Taxis stop right outside the hotel too and only cost 4euro to Plaka or Monastiraki which are good lively areas so you'll never be stuck there anyway.

Yes as some other reviews have said this hotel isn't in the nicest of areas but that shouldn't put you off this great hotel. I walked to and from the hotel easily to all of the main sights day and night and never felt in any danger, the area might be a little run down but the people are just as friendly as anywhere else I've stayed in Greece....but for those who might feel a little on edge the metro station is about a minutes walk from the hotel and is safe, clean, cheap and very efficient.

The hotel itself is moden and clean. The rooms are large with excellent bathrooms/wet rooms which are cleaned every day. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and extremly helpful, especially the breakfast/bar ladies...kalimera Olga! The breakfast itself is vast with different choices each day and the bar food is also excellent and resonably priced. The rooftop bar and pool area has excellent views of the acropolis and the surrounding area; the perfect spot to top up your tan, have a refreshing dip or sit in the shade and I can recommend a glass of red wine on an evening looking at the acropolis lit up in the distance.

The hotel has lots of complementary services available including; wifi throughout the hotel, towels for the pool/sun loungers, excellent air conditioning, toiletries, in room safe, fridge....and a big bowl of sweets!!

I stayed at this hotel for a week and would recommend it to anyone.

I stayed here for one night and it exceeded even the high expectations on here. Main points:
-New and modern
-Comfortable bed
-Very clean room
-Extremely friendly and english fluent staff
-Excellent value (I paid 65 euro all in and no extras (incl internet, breakfast, late check out to 3)
-Nice breakfast
-Good A/C and internet
-Amazing rooftop bar/pool area with 4 euro ouzo's and 8 euro mezze's that were perfect to match the night view of the Acropolis

Like others have said, this isn't the Plaka, so you won't be right next to the big sights, BUT you will be right next to the metro and it's only a few stops to the Acropolis.

Stay here.. if you're someone who likes new hotels with great staff and outstanding value and aren't afraid to be in a slightly offbeat neighborhood, you'll be very happy.

We stayed here as part of a tour so cannot comment on the price. However, quality of our stay was top notch. The food served at the breakfast buffet and the rooftop bar was both reasonably priced and delicious. Not to mention a great view of the Acropolis in the background! The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful. Free Wi-Fi was dependable in the two separate rooms we stayed. The room itself was big and very clean. We felt very comfortable in the rooms. There are a couple of mini-marts in the neighbourhood to buy water, snacks, etc. The walk may seem dangerous due to the state of the neighbourhood (boarded up shops, empty streets) but we did not feel unsafe at all. Walk to the subway station was also quick. This hotel qualifies as "city centre" from the airport so the flat rate for taxi fare applies. I believe it was 30 euro. Would definitely stay here again, though we may try for a better location first.
