    Review Highlights
    Positive Reviews
    • Their customer service is excellent

      Very few guests could find fault with the way they were treated by the hotel staff. Even reviews who noted that other aspects of their stay were less pleasant said the hotel's employees were both efficient and friendly. They were also quite happy to accommodate special requests.

    • Parking is a breeze

      Parking in the city can sometimes be tricky, and that why many guests were thrilled to find that the Athinaikon Hotel has a free, well maintained, easily accessible lot right up front.

    • The rooms are cleaned perfectly

      Reviewers were quite complimentary of the housekeeping stars. Most described the rooms and common areas of the hotel as spotless.

    Negative Reviews
    • It can be noisy

      Quite a few reviewers complained about the noise levels in the hotel. The Athinaikon Hotel is located on a busy street, and many guests were perturbed by the sounds of traffic late into the night. Furthermore, several previous guests noted that the walls are rather thin, and it was easy to hear conversations in the halls and neighbouring rooms.

    • It's run down

      Previous guests reported experiencing a variety of maintenance issues including air conditioning units that did not work well or were too loud and doors that were difficult to open and shut. They also noted that many features appeared tired, like the frayed carpets, scuffed and dented walls, and worn furniture.

    • It's a bit of a walk to the city centre

      Most guests reported that it was about a 15-minute walk from the hotel to the city centre. Several reviews noted that there were quite a few hotels that were much closer, and that would have preferred something more centrally located.
