The BEST WESTERN Candia Hotel is conveniently located in the city center, next to two metro stations and the central railway station. Located near both national highways, makes it ideal as a base for short excursions in Southern and Northern Greece by car or bus. Our multi-lingual staff is at your disposal 24-hours a day and ready to provide you with all the useful information to make your stay in Athens memorable. Most significant landmarks such as the new Acropolis Museum, and Plaka -the old city of Athens are reachable by the metro while other museums, shopping centers, beauty salons, pubs, traditional Greek tavernas, banks and transportation are in walking distance. Our guests can enjoy a cocktail on our roof top while enjoying a 360 degree panoramic view of Athens. A small but refreshing swimming pool will help you cool off on the hot summer days. Our restaurant is ready to surprise you with our delightful Greek dishes based on a Mediterranean diet.
Not the safest location after dark. Shower primitive. Air conditioner not powerful enough for Athens in August.
The Candia is very convenient being on a major street and very close to Larissa station for the Metro (or suburban/national rail links should you need them) the staff are friendly and helpful, and the views (particularly from the roof terrace/pool) are exceptional, especailly at night.
the only disadvantage to think of is perhaps traffic or train noise given its proximity to both, but this was only a minor issue during our stay.
It was one kind person at this hotel and he works in the reception. He take good care of his guests and was really helpful.
The service from the staff was really bad. In the information it says that the hotel has a good restaurant but it was closed. Breakfest was no good. Tee and coffee was cold and weak.The bar was closed already 9.30 in the evening.The cleaning was bad.
Excellent breakfast, Good value for many.Walking distance to Metro - Larissa Station. Many thanx to George the receptionist was very helpful who kindly moved me to a lovely double beded room with large balcony overlooking the Acropolis and giving me all the directions going to Piraeus to visit the Marinas. Thanx for Paskas for ringing me a taxi going back to the Airport.
Small Bathroom, noise outside the hotel near to the road and metro, 30 mins away from the Airport taxi will cost 40 - 45Euros.
