Hotel entrance and lobby are new and sophisticated. Breakfast is located on ground floor and is amongst one of the bests I have taken with Novotel. The hotel was pretty full at the time as this was during the Athens Marathon. read hotel review
  • Gastronomy
    6.0

    Hotel breakfast is excellent. Huge variety of breads, pastries, jams etc. Dining area is modern with a feeling of space and kept clean all the time. Always a table free to choose from. (Which is not always the case with certain Novotel with very limited seating areas).

  • Service
    5.0

    Greeting was not the best at check-in. I had done check-in online but attendant could not find my booking and made me wait 10 minutes for his supervisor. All staff spoke fluent English. Room was clean and modern, windows could be opened. Bathroom eeded some "revamping". Shower head is too heavy for wall support and often fell off. Paint in bathroom is peeling off in areas. Shampoo, soap and shower gel refilled everyday by room service. All in all good experience.

  • Location
    5.0

    Hotel is located at the centre of Athens and a ten minute walk from the Metro. There is a large Carrefour food store ten minutes away (next to metro station). The hotel is slightly away from the main shopping/tourist areas, although in a rather quiet area.

  • Room
    5.0

    The room is a standard size with loads of storing space for cloths. Bed and linen is extremely comfortable. Bath room is large with only a shower, no bath and shampoos are refilled every day. Apart from bathroom that looks somewhat run down, all areas of room are clean and modern.

    6.0

    Although not used by myself there is a fantastic outdoor pool on the top floor with bar and seating area Pool is spotlessly clean. 360 degrees breathtaking view of Athens a must see during the evening for a drink or meal. Excellent. Small but modern fitness center with great views of Athens. All equipment worked perfectly.

Went for one night, staff was nice and helpful, room service was above average and the rooftop bar was great with a decent sized swimming pool. The room itself was well cleaned and house kemping was up to par. The only slight negative was that the shower had a seat and there was no bath. read hotel review

A mediocre hotel with excellent staff
  • Hotel not recommended

  • October 2014
An ok hotel, but the 4-star rating is definitely given only because of the roof-top pool. Located in run-down area, but within easy connection to downtown by metro (you need to walk about 10 min to the nearest station, though). The hotel is rather run-down, rooms and corridors smell (former due to too strong cleaning fluids, latter due to obvious problems with plumbing). The staff is the best feature the hotel has - very friendly, helpful, and multi-lingual - they go out of their way to compensate for the shortcomings of the hotel. I stayed in many Novotels around the ... world, and this one is definitely among the worst in the chain facilities-wise, but with the best staff ever. read hotel review

    The roof-top pool is beautiful and has a fantastic view over Athens. We did not use it, as the weather in October was already cold, and the pool bar was closed, but I can see how it can be a major attraction of the hotel.

    The staff were fantastic! We were a big group of 17 and stayed for 4 days, everybody we met was helpful, friendly, and genuinely friendly. They were going out of their way to try to make our stay pleasant.

  • Gastronomy
    3.0

    Breakfast is ok for. 2-3 star hotel. one lunch we had was plentiful, but non-descript.

  • Room
    2.0

    The room was a standard Novotel-issue, but had obvious problems with the plumbing. It smelled, and the shower would not drain properly. The room was clean, but the smell was really unattractive.

  • Location
    2.0

    The area where the hotel is situated is one of the poorest and most run down in Athens. The city is trying to revive it by giving subsidies for cafes, shops and restaurants to open, but it will be a very slow process. The nearest metro station is within 10 min walk, and you reach downtown in 5 min.

This hotel is an interesting find, my comments are as follows: This hotel is in the Omonia district so is surrounded by some of the least attractive and poorest parts of Athens. I was told that it was unsafe to walk in the area, especially at night, I can believe this but I had no problems. Taxis within the city are cheap and plentiful 24 hours a day. I suspect the room rate reflects the location. The hotel has a pool, bar and restaurant on its rooftop. The view of Athens from here is fantastic, especially at night. The rooms ... are Novotel standard. Functional, not huge with a small fridge, safe and TV. The room had aircon though this only operated whilst the room was occupied. The bathroom is relatively small but clean. I cannot comment on the food served in the hotel but the beer is fine. 2 minutes walk away is a falafel takeaway for just one Euro, this is extremely popular with locals and great value. Overall, my feeling is you will not find another Western style chain hotel at these prices in the heart of Athens City. You can pay more for a better area or have better quality much further out of the city. It's a good compromise on both. I would stay again-) read hotel review
