“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2012

I stayed here before and after a tour of the Greek Islands and loved it. The staff are great, the breakfast was the best I had in two weeks, and the rooftop bar is also a very nice touch. Rooms are nice, especially the bathrooms.

The area isn't great, but to be honest I didn't see many parts of Athens that could be considered "good".

Stayed August 2012, travelled solo

We stayed for 2 nights at Novus City hotel in August 2012.
The hotel was very easy to find and indoor parking was included in the price.
The hotel is located just a 2 minute walk away from the Metro and about a 10 minute walk away from Omonia square.

The room was spacious and very clean.
The A/C felt a little underpowered.
Shower was great, with a lot of water pressure.
Check-in process was fast and easy, staff was always in a delightful mood.
The roof-top bar has a nice view of the Acropolis at night.
The pool is very small and has no shade area.
There is a good fast food restaurant just outside the door called Samantha fast food. Gyro, Souvlaki, cost is about $2 each.
For a better meal, there is Alexander the Great restaurant, just about a 3 minute walk.
I would go back to this hotel.

Just returned from a three night stay, family of four (kids 10 & 8). The area around the hotel is run down does have graffiti but so does most of Athens (and alot of UK cities). We walked through the area every night with no problem at all and experienced only kindness, easy solution if you are spooked then catch a cab (10 euros to practically anywhere in the city) or walk the 3 mins to the metro and 1.40 will get a grown up anywhere apart from the airport.

So forget the area, the hotel is fabulous value, rooms staff, pool view etc etc could not be better this is the place to stay.

Also we had two rooms and did not hear a peek through the walls even between ourselves and we are not the quietest family!

Handy location for seeing Athens but as other reviewers have alluded to, not the best neighbourhood. Hotel was clean with good rooms. Rooftop restaurant had great views. Breakfast was good. Staff friendly and helpful.

This is one of the best hotels I ever slept; Very friendly people, specially the woman in the breakfast restaurant; she was very helpfully, worked hard and has complete control over her job.Breakfast for the price of this hotel is great. Rooms are clean, beds o.k. and the bathroom modern. At the roof of the hotel the night view over the Akropolis is briljant. The swimming pool is small, but o.k. and with temperatures of 39 degrees it cools down a little.
The distance to plaka is easy to walk; it is not an interesting walk and it feels a little unsafe. In the evening it is better to take the metro. The distance metro to the hotel is just 100 meters. Or for a few euro (4 to 5 euro) you can take a taxi to the plaka.
