        7.0

        Great position in the city, you could say closest hotel to the airport bus stop.

        very slow and small lifts

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Friendly, helpful staff. Always willing to help. Very centrally located. Clean and tidy housekeeping

        The bathroom, even though it had everything we needed, was a bit small. The same for the elevator, it could be a bit bigger...I Guess that can't be changed now. However a place we would come to and recommend to our family and friends.

      • Single
        7.8

        Excellent city location for facilities, restaurants etc. Well site so as to allow most points of interest to be covered by foot, and a feeling of safety during hours of darkness. Travellers beware of taxi rip offs !! Staff polite and anxious to help given some of the limitations of the Hotel. I would stay there agin mainly for its good central position.

        Bathroom facilites tired and in need of attention. e.g. no plugs for bath or basin, broken shower head, wiring questionable Didnt get a double room despite all sorts of promises. Breakfast tired, and very limited with items running out early on.

      • Single
        7.4

        The location is only about 2 blocks from the Syntagma metro station, and within reasonable walking distance of the Acropolis. The breakfast was quite extensive and varied.

        The bathroom was quite "worn out", and it was impossible to put the shower in its holder without the water pressure blowing the curtain out and water flooding the floor. When sitting on the toilet, the lid would fall onto my back & if I leaned back it would touch against the handle and start flushing! The wifi internet would not work in my room, despite there being a strong signal but it worked in reception - other guests had the same issue.

        Perfect position, just can't be better

        Very noisy

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        Location is excellent, with food, shopping, train station, places of interests and local attractions within walking distance.

      • Group of friends
        6.6

        The location is excellent - good coffee at adjoining cafe, delicious food at a restaurant just a few shops away, shopping at the next street, just a short walk to Syntagma train station and many of the tourist spots in Athens.

        The rooms are a little bit old and the shower curtains are a little too short so the whole bathroom tends to get wet when one takes a shower.

      • Single
        9.2

        Position perfect, very clean and spacious room! A bit noisy....poor breakfast. but everything else very nice.

      • Family with children
        6.2

        Location

        An old hotel, poor shower, weak wifi signal on 7th floor.

      • Single
        5.8

        If I had wanted to explore the city the location would have been good. Early breakfast was also good.

        The room had only been cleaned at surface level - under the beds it was dirty and the decor was old and faded, making the room look shabby. The location was very central and as a result it was quite noisy at night.

      • Single
        7.0

        The location is excellent, you are walking distance from everything and even getting in town late at night I was could get there by metro. Is just 2 blocks away from it. Breakfast was good.

        The bed and pillow should be better. The bathroom was really small to take a shower and you need to hold the shower with one hand because it does not have a holder, that was not very nice. For sure you are paying for the location, I dont think the facilities are worth it.

      • Older travelers
        3.2

        Location. Good internet connection is free.

        Desk staff was unsmiling, indifferent. Room furnishings were primitive, cheap, and not clean. Bathroom was too sad to stay more than one night instead of the 6 we had reserved. It is rated incorrectly as a 3-star hotel, the price per night is a 3-star price, far higher than the 2-star rating this establishment deserves. Two blocks north of the Arethusa is the Astor, which was a far superior, truly 3-4 star hotel, for almost the same price as the Arethusa!
