"trip to athens"
I have booked a superior double room, in the room description on expedia there is "this room opens to a balcony with city views": no balcony at all, not a terrace, just a window opening in front of another buildingGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for tourists"
Good hotel, comfortable rooms. We had very pleasant stay. Rooms upstairs suffer from odd smell (possibly from swimming pool upstairs). Although the location might look unpleasant (Omonia district) it was very safe. Easy access to central Athens. Taxis are very cheap anyway.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is conveniently located in walking distance to central Athens and has car parking. The rooftop swimming pool and restaurant/bar with Acropolis and city views are a bonus. the rooms are clean. sofa bed for extra kids is not very comfortable. Breakfast is fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with amazing rooftop city view"
Overall very nice hotel and good service. If plan to use metro, this hotel wasn't a good choice. Taxi always at the front door of receptionist.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very clean and spacious. Friendly staff and excellent rooftop bar and viewGenuine Expedia guest review
Yes Athens is a bit grubby, but it was part of the charm for me. The Novotel is minutes away from the shops and markets. Good rooms, staff and great pool on the roof with a stunning view of the Acropolis. Very cool bars within 10 minutes walk. comfortable hotel that would would use again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great stay in Athens. Hotel was near many touristic sites.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value hotel, just not in nice part of town"
Very comfortable room, staff very helpful. Meals good value and saw had many facilities for kids.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Loved our trip in Athens."
We really loved our stay in Novotel,Athens. It's just a pity that hotel is in a run down area , because the hotel it self is really good.However it's not far from the metro which takes you absolutely everywhere and is very reliable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable hotel; great staff; brill rooftop view"
The hotel has all the amenities expected of Novotel. The location was adequate, not too far from the centre and well serviced by the metro and by taxis. The taxi only cost aroung 5 euros on average to get to the central Monstariki area. The staff were excellent, very friendly from the moment we checked in. There was a great buffet breakfast with the […] option to dine outside, which was lovely for the warm mornings. We had dinner at the hotel one evening too and it was very reasonably priced as was the room service which we used a number of times. The rooftop pool was great and is one of the main reasons I would select this hotel again. It would be great if the pool could be kept open for slightly longer in the evenings, along with the bar. It is a nice place to relax after a day of site seeing, but seems to close too quickly. The gym was also adequate for the short stay and I did not have to queue/wait to use the equipment. The views from the gym were brilliant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to city attractions but in a rundown area."
Hotel is convenient to city tourist attractions. Rooms are very small and Bathrooms or not private.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy beds for family"
Great timeGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean hotel room with good service"
little bit far from city center, computers in hotel lobbyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Poor location for tourists"
This is a good Novotel standard, though they was no access to a computer and printer so I could not use my accor points to pay the stay. I felt it was not located in a nice area and quite far away from the Plaka neighborhood, where you actually want to be when you are a tourist in Athens.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel but poor location"
Novotel is very reasonable and well maintained and this one was no exception. The neighborhood, however, is very poor and there are street people hanging around. Even if there were nearby restaurants I would not have gone out in the dark to try them so I felt very isolated inside the hotel. Luckily it was nice and has a good restaurant. Weekday breakfast […] buffet ends at 9:30 AM, which is a bit too early. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The whole experience was very good, the location is good, and the staff are great! The rooms was clean and very comfortable too. I would come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel, not the best location"
Second time that we've stayed here, as it was a convenient location for where we were visiting. It's outside the main tourist area, probably 10-15 minutes walk; and also a 5 minute walk from Larissa Metro station. The hotel itself is a good standard; clean and efficient, with a nice bar and restaurant on the ground floor. There's a rooftop bar as well, […] but that wasn't open in February! The area where the hotel is located is quite run down, with a lot of empty shops; having said that, we didn't feel particularly uncomfortable walking around, even after dark. Would stay here again if the circumstances were similar; but for a pure "tourist" break would want to be closer to the centre of town. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Functional hotel in run down district"
The hotel is functional, with adequate rooms and a roof terrace with fantastic views of Athens and especially the Acropolis by night. Do not plan to eat too frequently in the restaurant which is basically a fast food menu. The biggest challenge for the hotel is that the immediate area around the hotel is very run down and did not feel safe to venture […] out in at night. Any evening excursion has to start with jumping in to a waiting taxi. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is ok. Decor is dated. Breakfast was average. Staff were friendly and I slept well.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Good hotel bad location"
As a 4 star hotel, this hotel is ok. The only disadvantage if you'd stay in this hotel is the location. The neighborhood is a bit dodgy too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"short metro journey to the heart of athens"
once we got our bearing really enjoyed staying at this hotel roof a great place to relax after a days sight seeing bar & restaurant prices with in reason but not so far out side town that the journey back unreasonable metro cheap clean & easy to use . the hotel location seems at first to be in a bit dubious once we had explored more of athens realized […] it wasnt so bad. cant fault the staff or the service .Buffet breakfast ok if all inclusive but wouldnt have paid 14 euros for it but really appreciated having the kettle & fridge in the room.

"Great Hotel w/public transportation convenience"
The hotel was clean and comfortable. The service was efficient and friendly. The location was close to public transportation, but not as ideal for touring. Overall my stay was good. Good location for night before flight if you don't want to stay at the airport hotels...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Unhappy with location and surrounding area"
Location and photos from hotel rooftop restaurant advertised on the site are not matching the reality. Hotel located in poor residential area very far away from Acropolis. Instead of expected Acropolis view from the window we saw the rooftops of the residential buildings surrounding the hotel. Too far away from city centre and no cafes or restaurants […] around there. One staying in the hotel will have to use facilities available within the hotel - cafe shop/ bar located in the lobby area. In addition to that the rooftop restaurant was closed as only operating during summer! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice Hotel and good price"
we arrived at the hotel for a 5 day trip in Athens and the room was basic, well priced but not so sure about the safety in the area. the safe was not working in the room so that was not so great since we had to use the safe at reception.Genuine Expedia guest review
Staff were great, breakfast was faultless, pool was clean but closed too early, view from the rooftop restaurant was amazing, food was great. Our room smelled of smoke despite being a non-smoking room. We had to catch a cab into the main part of town, but it would have been over a 20 minute walk in the heat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great business hotel in a dodgy area"
Great hotel - clean and modern with friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect for our one day in Athens"
We frequently stay in Accor properties so were happy with the Novotel Athens as our choice for our one day stopover in Athens. We've stayed in Athens before at other hotels and this rates highly compared to some others. The staff were extremely warm and friendly, the facilities were great and the room comfortable. At the end of the day, the pool on […] the rooftop with the view of the Acropolis is fantastic but rather crowded in the middle of July. However it was a nice option to relax and swim after sightseeing and shopping most of the day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff are able to speak good English and are mostly very helpful. The boutique staff are very nice. The hotel is a couple of blocks from the metro which is 4 stops from Constitution Square. It is easy at Constitution square to change for the Metro to the airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
The accommodation quality, cleanliness and service was excellent. Unfortunately however the surrounding neighbourhood let it down. I do however recommend it highly for a family who is not after travelling after dark. The location of the metro station is only 5-10mins walk with easy access to the beautiful attractions Athens has to offer. Breakfast was […] excellent however we found the dinner pricy in comparison to the marvellous taverns, cafes etc in the main streets of Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
good price, good service, direct surrounding is dull but close to Larissa station and few stops form PlakaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very good value"
The Novotel Athens was a very good hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms and facilities were great. It was extremely good value for the money. The only thing that I wish were different is the time that the pool closes. We were two families with four children travelling together. The pool closes at 6pm which meant that we had […] to cut our sightseeing early to ensure that the kids got their swim time on a rooftop pool! I would recommend the hotel to anyone looking for a convenient place to stay in Athens. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"It was fair for the price"
I will not recommend the hotel as a family hotel, it is more a business location and to stay in a local area for night life and clubbing clientele. We were only for a short stay, so it was ok, but it is far away from airport and cost a lot to get back and forth from it. Definitely will not recommend it to families. Food was good, service was friendly […] and helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Best night sleeps and excellent breakfast! Location wise not in the best area of Athens, but only15 min walk to main attractions, so definitely good value for money!Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel with comfortable room and stunning pool. Staffs are helpful and friendly. Food is lovely. But room is a bit small, hotel location is not too bad but it takes about 5 mins to walk from train/metro station to there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"As good as it gets at a reasonable price"
This was a very comfortable, clean and friendly hotel. Beautiful roof top terrace with swimming pool-immaculate- and a view of the Acropolis gradually floodlit which was magic. The restaurant staff were outstanding and the food very good. The environment is not so interesting, but quiet for Athens. It was ideal for a ten minute walk to the National […] Archaelogical Museum, so that we could visit often and easily. I would retun happily. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Worth the money"
We only stayed 2 nights as a way of port to Santorini, but it was worth it. The service was very good, is more like a business/functions hotel, but for something central and access to atractions by tour bus and walking distance venues, was really convenient. Not good for going out at night to eat or sighseing, unless you are a young/party young person. […] Overall, it was a great hotel, we are comming back on our way to London, just for the one night, is far from the airport, but it is definitelly worth it. Food was good, wsimming pool, staff, first class. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel itself was clean and reasonably well maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast good and also bar snacks were good. The air conditioning in our room was not good... It felt as though only the fan was running and not the actual cooling. We spoke to reception and they put a report in for maintenance but it did not improve. We met some other […] people who were having the same problem but on another floor. The corridors were nice and cool. The shower drain did not drain fast enough so you were left standing in soapy water. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly hotel for short breaks"
It was slightly diffcult to find the hotel when first arrived at the Larissa Metro Station but its quite normal for a stranger to lose his orientation in a new environment. Once found it is quite easy to locate the hotel. It takes about 5 to 10 minuites walk from the Metro Station. Hotel is quite clean. There was a slight overlook from the hotel on […] our request for a Non-Smoking room when we first checked in (Although we have made a special request for Non-Smoking Room in our booking form). However the problem was resolved when we complained to the receptionist that we could not tolerate the smoking smell of the room. A non smoking room was then allocated to us. Our remaining stay were quite pleasant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, clean, well appointed hotel."
Poor location in rundown area really lets this fantastic hotel down. But it is just 10 minutes walk from Larissa Metro, and 10 minutes walk from the National Archaeological Museum. The area to avoid from the hotel is the walk down to Omonio Metro, which is frequented by prostitutes and drug addicts. We as a family did actually make this walk at 11 AM […] on Christmas Morning and whilst we didn't see any drug addicts, we did see evidence of their being there, and unfortunately the prostitutes were already out on the streets. Whilst we did not feel threatened at all, it was not a comfortable experience for my wife and children. Either take a taxi, (approximately 5 Euro) from the hotel or walk down to Larisssa Metro if you want to travel around the city, the walk down to Larissa is no problem at all. The hotel is fantastic, clean, modern, and with good facilities, and the breakfast is worth including in your room. We found the hotel rather warm as they had switched off the AC for the winter, but the staff went out of their way to find us a cooler room, ending up with us being upgraded to a suite (we were there for 12 days!). We cannot praise the staff enough, from the reception, through chamber maids, restaurants staff, they all go the extra mile to provide a fantastically welcoming and comfortable stay.

"Amazing rooftop pool and view"
This is a great, comfortable, modern choice in Athens. It is a little out of the way and the surrounding area is a little sketchy but the hotel, the rooftop pool and the view are priceless. Plus the subway is only a five min walk away and easy to navigate your way to the sights. It is about an hours tube ride from the airport. We would stay here again […] 100% Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel, suitable for all, but in very bad area"
There is actually nothing really wrong with this hotel (a few minor bits of repair work would be nice, touch-ups really) and the majority of the staff were pleasant and helpful. However, food and drinks were very expensive and this was exacerbated by the fact that it was not easy or cheap to get to a better part fo the city to eat and drink - there […] was nowhere nearby and I would not have felt safe walking out in the area at night unless in a group of people. Further to above the hotel is situated in a horrible area that felt extremely unsafe, especially at night, and even though the hotel itself was pleasant enough I woud not stay there again. To confirm my thoughts, on the 2 nights we did go out by taxi, on both occasions, the taxi drivers put up the windows and locked the doors in the immediate vicinity of the hotel (from a couple of streets away) telling us that it was a very bad area. However, once in the hotel, you would not know you were in such an awful area apart from looking out of your hotel window. We ate at the hotel a couple of times (evening and daytime) and the food was good but as I said earlier (especially the feeling of being confined due to the area) it was far too expensive.
