"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

"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

"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.

"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.

"Could be a whole lot better"
The facilities are all there for this to be a great hotel but something was lacking. We arrived late and checked into our room which was a smoking room and we had requested non smoking. It smelt to bad so we asked to change rooms which was fine. In the next room there was no remote for the tv and it could not be operated by the buttons on the tv itself. […] Shower was barely a dribble. However the pool area on the roof was great but after having our dinner (in the hotel which was very good) we wanted to go up to the pool area to see the acropolis lit up at night but it was locked which was dissapointing. The free internet stations in the lobby were very useful. Staff were ok not that outgoing but answered all our questions well enough. Still very good value for money but wouldn't pay much more for a hotel in this area of the city. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel in a very Nasty and Dangerous Area"
No problem with hotel itself but the location is very serious and dangerous area. We were assualted and suffered serious injuries. We had to cut short our holiday and go back home. It is a great hotel in a wrong area. Staff are great and helpful and they will do their best to make you feel home and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very pleasant hotel"
Overall it is a very nice hotel. The staff are helpful. The roof bar was amazing, just a shame that it does not open until June. Nonetheless we were allowed to use it and bring our own drinks. I was disapointed with the storage space in the room. If you are planning on staying for longer than a couple of nights and like to carry a full suitcase you […] will have difficulties storing your clothes. The breakfast was really good so it is worth paying a little bit extra for it. The area is ok, I had read a lot of comments from people saying how bad it was so I was a bit sceptic, however having been there I now totally disagree with those comments. It might not be the best area in Athens but we walked from the underground station to the hotel every night and I never felt unsafe. I had a very pleasant stay and I would definitely recomend this hotel to anybody. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
As a frequent traveller I was very disappointed with the poor standard of the room at Novotel, Athens. It was not even close to a 3 star rating. Overall the room was run down and after having reqested a non smoking room, specially as I was on holiday with my family, I was given a very offensive smelling "smokers room". TV was faulty. Minifridge did […] not work. carpets were VERY dirty. Pillows were absolutely horrible. Bed linen was not up to the minimum expected standard. Had to make my coffee in the virtuallly flexible plastic cups. No spoons. Tea / coffee was not replaced daily, unless requested. I AM NOT A PERSON WHO WOULD USUALLY COMPLAIN, BUT THIS WAS OUR EXPERIENCE AT NOVOTEL, ATHENS. Dr. F. Khalid Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Okish Hotel nowt special cold dried up breakfast"
I would have given a very nice review of the Novotel but I can't. The staff members were horrible, they did not smile and acted as if they did not want to be there. None of them seem that interested in anything, The room itself was okay and relatively clean but I don't think I quite like the frosted glass door for the bathroom. The Airconditioning in […] my room was not very cold but I never actually complained simply because they weren't approachable. I had to leave the window open at night but then the street below never sleeps there was constantly noise 24/7 cars, bike and people shouting being that its a not so nice area. The morning after I first checked in, the lady who replenishes the mini bar in the rooms burst into my room with her own key and without knocking shouting "Mini Bar Mini Bar" I was so furious. After she opened the door and saw me then she knocked on the open door still shouting mini bar, I was so shocked and couldnt speak for a bit, then when she was leaving with not as much as a sorry, I called her back and said not to do that again but instead she pointed to me putting the "Do not Disturb". I complained about this later in the evening by phone to a gentleman at the reception, instead of an apology, all I got was he knew the Mini bar lady very well and how she works, so I must have been sleeping and didn't hear her even though I said I wasn't. Strange I heard the housekeeper knocking the following day when I was actually sleeping. Wrong people! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We love Novotel"
We love Novotel for its family friendly policies. Staff members were very friendly. The breakfast was fantastic at reasonable price. The hotel is conveniently located. Though the surrounding area is a bit run down, it shouldn't bother a tourist. We hired a double room. The rooms were huge. Kids loved XBox station in the lobby.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A great stay!"
Great staff, could not have done more for us! We always requested extra tea which was not a problem and always bought to our room very quickly!

Although located across a congested road a little away from the City Square, the Hotel is quite big, clean and equipped with all the facilities expected from a 4* hotel. The room offered to us was quite big and clean on the 5th floor with a personal balcony facing the road. A free 24-hour wireless service was also offered in the room. The roof gives […] a wonderful view of the surroundings and has a nice pool. Gym and restaurant are located on the 7th floor. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Novotel Athens..four star.. you got to be kidding"
This is probably the worst recommendation from Expedia ever. Here I was boasting to my friends how Expedia never gets it wrong and I land up at this hotel. This is not a family friendly hotel. The bathroom and toilet is small; it has no locks on it. Very small room and were given a double bed and sofa bed for kids. Once the Sofa bed was laid out no […] space for anything else. All out luggage had to be piled up in the corner of the room. No wardrobe space; no bell boys; we have to haul our luggage up. Their idea of play area is a small corner in the lobby of the hotel. Video Game place is also there but that is in front of the doors to the hotel. Even for a business hotel this is pathetic. They don't have a printer in the business center. Area that the hotel is located is also not so good. After dark; lots of guys hanging around the hotel. Some of the staff were really helpful and nice some I thought were racist. Always making faces when ordering for food. Overall as a family place will never recommend this one. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
