Great location, friendly environment overcharge for late check out
I liked the location of the hotel which was pretty easy to all transportation, within the commercial center and shops but also very quiet and peacefull to the well known and noisy Athens. Personel was very polite and always ready to answer or help at any querries. I dont have anyting that I didnt like except the room which was at the back and there was no actual view
Clean room, no noises around, very good bathroom, comfortable bed, tasty breakfast...In general i'm satisfied There was no window at my room that should open. Only one which was locked, so no fresh air from outside in. There was no wireless internet above third floor, only wired. A staff member told me that the internet wasn't free (actually it was), after a while he came to correct his statement but never apologized. I used the PC at the lobby.
The location cannot be beat. You are right in the middle of most of the main attractions. The breakfast is very good. The shower was a bit small in my room, and the bed was a little too firm, but other than that it wa an excellent hotel.
- great location: next to Syntagma square, all the main tourist places are within walking distance - great breakfast: very good variety of savoury and sweet dishes, - Nice, large, clean and comfortable room: room and hotel are well maintained - we booked a double room and added "double bed" in our request, but for some reason, it was not communicated to the hotel (too many intermediary agents?) - so we were given twin room. The hotel was full and couldn't change our room. Make sure to email the hotel directly after booking!
The staff were very attentive, especially in the restaurant. The choice of food at breakfast was excellent. This hotel offers really good value for money, and its location is perfect for business people,shopping and sight seeing. Best of all, the hotel is within easy reach of the Plaka and Monastiraki. The bath is far too small, even for petite guests! The fittings in the bath do not allow for any room to wash yourself. Otherwise, a nice bathroom.
very handy for the sites, close to airport bus & metro breakfast was good The carpets in the hallways were stained, as was the room plus the curtains were marked,
the location and value for money and staff
That it was so near the center and the metro station It should be a fitness center there
Location, very good food for room service Poor breakfast, deteriorating with time... Difficult to order room service
The Plushness of the hotel. They allowed us into our rooms at 9:00 a.m. on our arrival day. Wonderful!! We could sleep and then hit the town.
Location and American Breakfast. Some, but not all, of the reception desk staff did not seem too interested in helping out of towners. None had ever heard of Continental Airlines and were not too interested in helping me get in touch with them.
During previous stays in winter, the rooms were centrally heated and it was impossible to get the temperature below 25 degrees Celcius without opening the windows. During this stay, I was able to switch on the airo . They told me they changed thear heating policy after receiving complaints. Bravo! No reason to avoid this hotel any longer.
the pool the pool the pool it was so refreshing after a hot day of travel or site seeing a true treat! the big fluffy extra pillows were a bonus, was properly air conditioned and plenty of room to bounce around. breakfast was great, fresh OJ and Greek Frappé coffee yumerola!!! the pool and deck gets a bit crowded at peak times as it is quite small and overly chlorinated so bring your goggles!
Service was impeccable, food was delicious, especially upstairs on the rooftop. Killer view. Oh, and the mattress and bedsheets are of high quality - you'll sleep very well. The wifi is kinda slow, shower design will leave your floor soaked
I had a noisy room on the street.
Definitely the location is outstanding! Don´t have separate twin beds. All rooms have double beds, that can be a limitation.
Very nice hotel, great location. The room was quite big and the bed was sooo comfortable. I was impressed by the design. They could improve breakfast. It's ok to have the same breakfast everyday but food that should be warm was cold constantly.
The hotel was great. Perfect location and a great example of a 5 star hotel. Staff were very friendly, spoke excellent English and helped in every way possible. No negatives whatsoever. If I'm in Athens again this is where I'll be staying.
The location of the hotel was great. It is very close to the Acropolis, which was the reason for us to visit Athens, Greece. The view from the roof of the hotel was stunning.
Well situated hotel.
The location, in a quiet central street; the common premises (lobby, terraces, swimming pool, restaurant, breakfast room, with the exception of the spa which is disappointing) more than the rooms themselves; the professional staff; quality and variety of breakfast; restaurant is good, but too expensive compared with Athens standards. Only one problem, but major: our room was overheated because of the amazing heat coming from the minibar, to the point where the air was almost unbreathable. To be fixed urgently!
The location of the hotel is perfect, very much in the city center and able to go every where walking. External noises: the isolation of the rooms is not very good and therefore during the night we could hear the external noises.
Location Street side rooms are very noisy from vehicle traffic
Very nice place located in the heart of the city with a good value. The staff was always there to help and made excellent recommendations for our stay. Would've loved to have a single queen bed in stead of two twins but this is not that unusual in Greece.
Location is central and the balcony of our room gave views of Syntagma, the Parliament building and the Parthenon. Short walk to excellent Benaki Museum and roof-top restaurant, Theocharakis Foundation and first-floor cafe, Numismatic Museum (Schliemann's house) and cafe, fashionable Kolonaki and funicular to Mt Lycabettus. Close to Get-on Get-off city tour bus. Handy for shops and restaurants.
The rooms are big and the location is great next to shopping and restaurants. Nothing
Good value for money ,excellent location,frienly staff no
Location, friendly staff Walls are not well isolated
the location was ideal, our room had a magnificent view & the room was a great size and very comfortable nothing
Comfort of rooms. The soft mattress was appreciated! Also their willingness to accomadate our late check out. Front desk personnel were not particularly friendly in person. Prices for breakfast and laundry service were outrageous. Cost for pressing should of been complimentary since no iron provided in the room.
very classy, comfortable, elegant the closets need more hangers
Excellent service, good location, excellent spa & fitness center. Nothing
Fantastic foyer, great roof top garden restaurant, luxurious.
Loved the elegance of the hotel, service and roof top dining. Nothing, just perfect!
The hotel as name suggests was very Grand the design was very beautiful
the service and rooms were all exactly as advertised this is truelly a 5 star hotel.
Room is well appointed and very comedienne. Staff is friendly and helpful. A beautiful well decorated old hotel with modern conveniences. Service in restaurants was a little sporatic. Water pressure in shower a little weak. No check out on TV, and in person checkout was slow.
Very pleasant and knowledgeable concierge We didn't like the room first provided but after complaining received smaller but with much better view. Why not to provide the better room initially?
Location is very nice.
close vicinity to all sights
The comfort and service were of the highest quality. We enjoyed our stay, and were made to feel welcome. The food and beverage prices were extremely high, so we availed ourselves of these to the very minimum!
The view at the hotel's restaurant is simply wonderful.. I think this maybe the highest point in Athens! While having breakfast you could see the Acropolis & almost all of Athens, the restaurant also has a terrace where you could enjoy your morning coffee & cigarette with a marvelous view :) I like my hotels to have a 24 hours of room service. Or at least fill the minbar in the room with water!
The location was perfect for us The small towel in my bath was a rag-- torn edges all around. i expected better quality.
Location, room size Street noise
Great location, nice room, polite and helpful staff. Great view to Acropolis and Athens from roof restaurant!
The beautiful view and location. The restaurant in the roof was bad. The vegetables atbreakfast were not fresh at all. And in the evening the food I ordered was not tasty. The waitress was sweet and kind.
Location of hotel
The friendly, helpful response of staff and the wonderful view of the citymade it all work. The Bar could use some work as far as liquor available. And the breakfast seating was limited--but that was the fault of the birds. Great breakfast. Not great dinner--we should have gone out.
Location is good, only!
Location is superb. Breakfast is ok and the view from the breakfast room is the best! Astor is very cosy and comfortable, easy. Nice bar. Hotel Astor has no environmental programme, or at least nothing such was visible. Service in the breakfast room was quite slow (cleaning the tables, filling up the cheese trays etc.).
The location was really great and it was easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. There were really loud college kids running around at 4 in the morning which made it difficult to sleep.
Great view of Acropolis from breakfast room. Breakfast was very generous. Single rooms have no view. Window is opaque and when opened revealed a wall a few feet away.
location, staff, and enviornment
good location One staff in reciption was not polite in giving info about additional taxes and wanted me to just sign the credit card bill quickly!
Excellent location, at 2 minutes walk from stop of X95 bus from airport; around corner from Akropolis. Good room, friendly staff, great breakfeast No complaints
The views from the rooftop bar were gorgeous. Breakfast spread was excellent
The location is the main advantage of the hotel. I didn't like the small bathroom in which it was difficult to move.
Room was tiny, bathroom was tiny, staff was incredibly rude. Make sure you state the number of guests (e.g., 2) and not just that you need one bed or they will try to give you twin bed.
Location, comfort, cleanliness and value for money
fine location, in the middle of shopping center. breakfast was excellent.staff willing to help. cleaning service was excellent no terrace restaurant
Very convenient location, very comfortable.
Excellent customer service, modern and spacious room I will definitely come back and stay with Electra.
Friendly, courteous, helpful staff, great location, clean, attractive facility
Small , dirty room. Not a 5 star
great deco, lovely bar and the resturant food was excellent the sound proofing in the room was very poor and you can hear people's conversation from the corridors.
The location The rooms are very small and this was uncomfortable
Very helpful and friendly staff, they were attentive to all our needs and requests. Excellent view of the Acropolis and overall Athens. The restaurant-bar at the top floor is also a wonderful place for dinner or a drink. The boutique room (suite) is very overpriced. Small for its price, and without any distinctive features, apart from the balcony with the beautiful view.
Proximity was very good as I like this area of city. Wish they had heated pool.
Due to extensive flight delays we missed the first night of our reservation at St. George and did not arrive in Athens until 6AM. However, we forgot all about our troubles almost immediately after checking into this superb hotel. 1. Without even telling us they upgraded our room to the front side of the hotel which had absolutely incredible views of the Acropolis from our balcony. While it wasn't a large room (they never are in Europe!), it was clean, the bed was great, and the bathroom was perfectly OK. 2. Despite our exhaustion, we dragged ourselves out of bed just in time to catch breakfast. Went up to the 6th floor and was blown away by the 360 views of Athens. We asked if we could just grab a plate of food from the buffet (delicious selection) and take it back down to our room. Not only did they say yes, but they had someone carry our food down to the room ON A SILVER PLATTER. No jokes. Also, without even asking for it they sent with a hot carafe of coffee with STEAMED MILK. 3. On the last leg of our trip, coming back from an island, we had 12 hours to kill in Athens before heading to the airport. Despite no longer being guests for over 7 days they graciously stored our bags and let us hang out at the roof pool until we had to leave. WHAT. 4. Oh, and the pool is like a dream. Gorgeous pool with gorgeous Athens view with lounge chairs and great music. Happy hour is from 7-9 offering 6 euro cocktails. The neighborhood this hotel is in is really great and completely safe as it is where all the embassies are located. Since it's on a hill be prepared to climb! It is worth it as there are very charming buildings, great cafes, shops, and restaurants. You can be in Kolonaki (walking) in 15-20 minutes. There is a metro stop 7 blocks away that goes directly to the airport. WHY WOULD YOU STAY ANYWHERE ELSE? I know I won't be.... Thank you St. George! You made our trip.
The hotel was tired. The room and bathroom were not clean. This is not a five star hotel as described by travel sites. The power in the hotel failed in the middle of the night & we had no AC, emergency lighting came on, which is what we woke to at 3am. The house phone was ignored when I attempted to call the front desk to clarify the situation. I called from my mobile & was told 'this happens all the time'. An appalling 'hotel'.
Most of the staff was helpful and friendly with only a couple exceptions. Located in a safer/nice side of town that is much more quiet. Atm and money exchange available. Nice pool area and great pool staff but not enough sun chairs/space. The spa wasn't open for all of my four day stay except for one day. The one day they were open they only had massage capabilities available (ie no facials or nail treatments etc) so I went ahead and booked a massage with the only therapist available. I found the male massage therapist to be a bit unprofessional and the massage was oddly touchy. For example it seemed like he was trying to rub his body on the sides of mine while giving my massage. The breakfast buffet is 22 euros and a lot of the food was cold including meat and eggs which is dangerous! All food at this hotel is pretty over priced. No hot tub as advertised? Dirty/moldy between bathroom tiles. If they call a taxi for you the ride is 3 euros more expensive
Situation and nothing else Very small pool, non-smoking rooms just smoking rooms with apple scent sprayed, tired decoration, lack of porters. Living on its name. Avoid.
Nice view from bar / restaurant Very disappointed. No way is this a 5 star hotel. Spa, Sauna, swimming pool etc. close on Marathon weekend. Couldn't care less attitude from staff.
The hotel is great, very modern and rooms have a lot of space. The bathroom has a jacuzzi and a shower with many shower options. The bed is very large and confortable. The restaurant on the roof is so wonderful and has a very nice view. Staff has been very kind to us, helping with our luggage that didnt arrive. The relation cost/benefit is perfect.
location kind of warm in the room during the day. No A/C in April.
Location is good, close to Metro and bus stop for airport bus Hotel is of one to two star quallity only. Bathroom door cannot be closed, no electric socket, room smelled, toilet was dirty
the location and breakfast although the breakfast could have changed over a week stay it was difficult to regulate he heat The bathroom was small and he shower was tiny
The excellent location, close to the parliament square and the subway stations and various shopping and dinning options within walking steps The furnitures inside the room are not function well
central to everything
good location near metro stop, complementary breakfast ok rooms face main street and without AC switched on it was necessary to open windows- very noisy all night long, very small bathroom/shower.
We loved the hotel Arethusa. It was in a superb location, convenient for every where. The staff were very helpful and the breakfasts were lovely. Very good value for money. The beds were a little hard. Our room had floor to ceiling windows directly opposite an office block about 30 feet away. The windows did not have nets and I am not sure whether we or the office workers were more surprised by our appearances in the nude.
Excellent location, friendly staff The room needs renovation, especially the furnitures. Room 509 was noisy when the window was open. I didn't like the coffee and the orange juice, the rest of the breakfast was ok.
We stayed for 2 single nights, on both end of our sailing charter out of Athens. The staff was helpful and the location was good for walking to sites like the Acropolis. The room was not fancy, but was clean and the breakfast was good. If you're high enough, and on the street side of the building, you can even get a view of the Acropolis. Great value for a 2 Star.
Location Everithing. The olny thing it has, is the location. The rest is unbelievable. The shower broken, no A/C, they didn´t allowed us to take one towel to de beach!!!!, breakfast horrible.
Cannot beat the location, right off Syntagma Square Functional Very good breakfast Great view from the roof 150 yards from X95 bus to airport Shower head constantly leaked Rental lockers were difficult to access and use No view out window Bathroom and room were cramped Only one outlet available in room In and out of elevator was tough with luggage
Fantastic restaurant £40 for breakfast for 2. And we only had cereal!!!
Location was good. Expensive for the value.
small poorly designed bathroom
it was amazing,excellent,very clean
The rooms were amazing!!!
The kind staff, cleanliness of the hotel and the design/decor.
Exceptional hotel and service. The staff went an "extra mile" to make sure that our stay would be great. Thank you!
No kettle / coffee maker in room. First room very very small and bed was two singles pushed together. I fell between the two !
very good location in the center of Athens
The design and quality of the room was wonderful.i liked a lot the lighting and the bathroom. i didn't like that instead of a queen bed there were two separated beds and the thing that there was an inside door that was separating my room from the next one,so i could hear the other persons talking.
Great shower head, and super water pressure. Breakfast was great with view of the ruins. Our room faced a courtyard with trash in it.
Nice rooms,nice breakfast, helpfull staff, not too big.
the friendliness of the staff as well as the location (in the center of Athens)
very easy walk to the acropolis, nice view of the acropolis from our balcony, good buffet breakfast included in price, very helpful staff.
i always choose room 604 because I can look at the parthenon of which I adore. the curtains ar very dirty and the curtains extr. dirty.they need renovation
Simplicity and grat location
The helpful and friendly staff, the air conditioning, the internet availability, the cafe Explanation card of the electrical power usage and turning on the television and air conditioning unit for foreigners like me would have been nice.
Central location. The new rooms. The old lower standard room.
The location Hotel staff was not very helpful
central position no
Great location of hotel
convenience, accessibility. no hot water bottle, no specific instruction about the central market or other visit suggestions at the front desk. Staff courtesy can be improved.
Breakfast. Excellent location couldn't have been better. Very clean Room kind of small. Small bathroom. But very clean. Nice staff.
The hotel's location is perfect just a few minutes walk from Syntagma Square - bus (Euro3.20) and train (Euro5) from the airport take you there. You are situated within walking distance of all the major tourist sites that you will want to visit. Syntagma is the hub for the Athens transport system which makes it easy to go to all other areas in Athens including the train to Port Pireas if you want to go to one or more of the Islands. A 7 day ticket for all public transport (tram, bus, train) costs Euro10 and is great value. So many places to eat around that part of the city and English is readily spoken. The hotel rooms are typical in European size (small) but a far higher quality than most you experience in Europe - true 3+star rating. Breakfast is good value and provided over a 2.5hrs period. The cleaniness of the hotel was all that you could desire. The only negative feature is a shower designed without side walls or curtain which gets the floor extreamly wet after use - you need all the towels provided to mop up . TV is all Greek with the exception of CNN (there is only so much you can take of CNN!!!) and CH 5 with an English movie accompanied with Greek subtitles each night. Would be the first hotel we would go back to if visiting Athens again. Excellent in value and location. If only the rest of Europe's hotels were like the Amazon.
Very close to plaka
Free wi-fi, the friendly personal Very small rooms.
Everything was excellent. Good room, clean, airconditioning, movies etc The staff were really helpful. Location wass perfect.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Perfect location. Very clean room + bathroom Breakfast could be improved adding some fresh fruit/vegetables. In my room the wi-fi signal was very weak, but working. Small bathroom
Good area near lots of restaurants and major sites. Hotel is very basic with very small rooms. Good to rest and shower but far from luxury. Basic tourist level 2/3 star spot. AC was very good. Towels need an upgrade. Very thin and overused. Bed was very hard and small.
Great location and great air conditioning! especially in the 40 degree heat of Athens
It was a cheap stay for 1 night during transit. The location was great and it was easy to be able to walk to all the sites in Athens downtown (i.e. Syntgama square, Monisteraki market and Plaka). Breakfast was good and starts early. I am a vegetarian and I had few options but plenty like fruits, cereals, bread and some dessert. They have juice, coffee and tea. For meat eaters, they had lots of options like eggs, some cured meats, fish, omelette, etc. The carpets were outdated and looked overused. The bathroom was too small and compact. Had a stuffy smell in the room which I guess was because of old carpet.
The staff was excellent & extremely helpful, we were given a room with a view of Acropolis, every day the room was cleaned and the breakfast though basic was ample! The only thing that could be improved is soundproofing in the room as you could ,at times, hear someone moving outside.
The rooms were maintained to a very high standard, and the housekeeping was spot on. The shower fixture was mounted at waist-height which wasn't the most practical.
The Internet connection was very comfortable to use. The noise, eraly in the mornings, at about 04:00.
Location, accessibility to public transportation, especially if you need to early check in your morning flight (before 6:00am).
The area was very near the city center with a great view of the Acropolis. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was on the small side and the breakfast was mediocre at best. Avoid the charge and eat out. Plenty of good places nearby.
We stayed only for one night to discover Athens. The hotel's location is great. Nice restaurants are around, city center and metro is very close and easy to reach when you walk. The rooftop bar has a amaizing view to the achropolis!
Staff was very helpfull and location was great. It needs to be renovated. Room was too small and all furnitures were very old. I had a view of the wall of the next building.
It was central and enabled us to access historic sights, shopping and delightfule eating. all good
only a 2min walk from the metro. Fabulous view from the rooftop garden/bar of the acropolis. basic but clean and convenient
location, clean, balcony with view over the Acropolis, roof terrace, discount for parking
Close to airport metro link. Rooftop Bar
friendliness of front of house staff. cleaners and breakfast room girl Lack of window screens - thus mosquitos! Shower curtains sticks to us when showering Fridge not cold enough for the contents would be lovely to have medzes offered - even a dip/biscuits on roof - better to eat a little when consuming alcohol!
3 minute walk to the metro station and a 5 minute walk to the center
The staff is excellent, and the location is very good. The bathroom is to small.
Roof top patio/bar with excellant view of Acropolis makes staying here a must. This was our 5th visit. Helpful staff, free internet, and convenient location are also major pluses.
Leaving The location. We did not like Athens City at all.
Drinks at the rooftop bar with the view of the Acropolis lit up at night is definitely a highlight!
Great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar! Only bummer was that the hot tub is not open during the winter.
Proximity to museum and plaka Internet didn't work TV cable news etc a joke.... The bed a single hard uncomfortable plank Everything for 120$??
Rooms were comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with lots of selections. The rooftop bar had stunning views of the acropolis. The location was PERFECT! Walking distance to everything you need to see! A little mold in the shower.
Close to trains and Plaka Staff were not kind nor attentive
