"Lovely hotel, walking distance from the station"
Took the train from the airport & then only 10 minute walk from the station. Found hotel straight away. Very easy to get around the city & took the tram to the beach one day. Went on the open top tour bus which took us around the city & then changed buses & took the optional tour to the port where the cruise liners came in. Only negative thing was the […] time we were there, there were marches and protests. We bought tickets for the train to go back to the airport and was told the trains were on strike and we had to get a taxi. I think the hotel staff could have warned us about this, we were at reception twice that morning & if we were aware of this would have ensured we had enough euros to pay for the taxi & given ourselves more time as the traffic was terrible with all the main roads closed off.

"Good location and value"
Within walking distance of all the main sights in Athens and a few minutes from the nearest stop for the red hop on hop off bus. Nice roof top pool with great views and comfortable sunbeds. Breakfast was very good hot buffet and included freshly squeezed orange juice, plenty of fruit and Greek yoghurt. All staff were friendly and helpful. Our room on […] the 7th floor was a good size with nice décor and toiletries - the balcony didn't have any chairs and no one seemed to use their balconies but went up to the roof for drinks and meals. Cocktails were good but quite expensive. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Trendy hotel in a very unusal location"
A cool & hip hotel in a very dodgy location, if you accidently walk in the wrong direction you could be in trouble but conveniently located to alot of places of interest. Staff are very friendly & helpful in many ways in making your stay as comfortable as possible.Rooms have a minimalist approach to its decor which is the theme of the hotel. Have a […] great roof top pool/restaurant/bar which is great to have in the sweltering heat of Athens in the middle of Summer, with a fabulous view of the Acropolis.The food & cocktails at the roof to restaurant were the best that I had during my stay in Athens.This little Pop hotel gives you value for money but at a price of its location!

"Excellent Hotel in a central location."
We, a family of five including three teenagers, stayed for seven nights in August. We had adjoining executive rooms on the eighth floor: this was enough space though the bathrooms are small. The pool on the roof is small but a good place to cool down after a hot day sightseeing; the rooftop bar has good views over Athens and is a good place to eat […] on your first night in the city. The buffet breakfast is plentiful though the coffee would not win any prizes. The staff are friendly and helpful if you want to book a trip though with free wifi you can do this yourself. One negative is the lifts: too small and slow. One evening we arrived behind a US party with enough bags for a year away so we walked up to the eighth floor faster than the lift would have been. The area is not the prettiest part of Athens and is a little seedy but felt perfectly safe. You can see the Parthenon from the roof and be there in 20 minutes. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fresh Hotel Stay 28.07.13 - 05.08.13"
Hotel is very good. Extremely central to everything you need. Two metro stations within 5 minute walk of hotel. Staff are very friendly and always willing to assist. Breakfast is excellent with plenty of variety. Rooms are cleaned daily and kept clean. Bathrooms are OK. Could do with a refresh. Pool area is just OK but it definitely is value for money! […] Overall I would 100% recommend this hotel and would stay here again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved this hotel, clean, comfortable, amazing location. Staff were efficient, and rates were reasonable given it is in the heart of Athens. Roof top bar and pool added a bit of extra luxury at the end of our hectic month of travelling! I would definitely stay at Fresh again and recommend to friends and family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very good all round hotel. Breakfast most enjoyable and staff at breakfast most efficient and pleasant. Poolside was also very enjoyable. Hotel is clean and tidy and there was always someone at reception to assist.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wish I had more time"
I was only in Athens for one night. When I saw the pool area when I was leaving I wish I had a few hours to enjoy it. It was first rate and looked so relaxing and chic.The front desk people could not have been nicer and there was a really cool art opening in the gallery attached to the hotel. I'm an artist from the USA and this really excited me. The […] only negative thing I can say is simply that the lobby looks like it could use a freshen up. The furniture, though cool, was a little worn out.I would definitely stay here again if I were in Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would definitely stay again!"
I thought this hotel was PERFECT!! I even rebooked to stay again on my return to Athens after island hopping for 3 weeks. The inclusive breakfast was AMAZING, the rooftop terrace/pool/bar was great, and after travelling around both Turkey and Greece for 2 months, I can honestly say I had the BEST sleeps overall at the Fresh hotel. Before I booked the […] fresh Hotel I read the previous recommendations on Expedia/trip advisor and a lot of people complained about the location...I couldn't disagree more. I was refreshing to stay in a local neighbourhood and if you have ever travelled to any big city before (LA, Vancouver, NYC, Barcelona, etc) you will see the same things there. If all you want to see are streets packed with TOURISTS than maybe stay in Plaka, but if you want authenticity, stay here. Added bonus? It's 2 blocks from the metro which you can take all the way to and from the airport for 8 Euro. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We found the Fresh Hotel is situated withing walking distance of the main sites. We especially enjoyed the breakfasts in the hotel. We had a meal in the roof top bar the first evening and drinks there twice enjoying the views over the city and the welcome breeze. The room was clean with everything we needed, safe, hairdryer, toiletries etc. All in all […] in lovely holiday in Athens. Thank you Fresh Hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"If you detest cigarette odours stay away."
This actually is a very nice hotel, except for one thing. They claim to be smoke free. It isn't. And indeed they seem to make little or effort to keep it smoke free. The first time I stay in this hotel it was good - my room only vaguely smelt of cigarette smoke and there didn't seem to be any smokers in the hotel. However, the story was very different […] on my second stay. The first room I was shown to stunk of cigarette odour; and while the second room seemed to be OK, when I went to go to sleep that night I found that the bedding as full of cigarette odours. I did not have pleasant night sleep. To make it worse the hotel allows people to smoke in the bar/restaurant/pool area, which sits on the roof of the hotel. This gives rise to 2 negatives. 1. It means you can't enjoy a pleasant drink/meal at the bar/restaurant; and 2. it encourages smokers to stay at this hotel, which undoubtedly carries across to smoking in their rooms. On my last stay there w at least one chain smoker in the bar area. Tell me that this person didn't go back and continue to smoke in their room? I complained to the hotel staff, but without any satisfaction. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"First time visit to Athens"
Our stay at the Fresh hotel was very enjoyable ... access to hotel from airport via metro was very convenient ... Staff were friendly and helpful ... breakfast was amazing and the breakfast room was very bright and cheeryGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfy beds, large bathrooms"
The room was clean and brightly lit. The bathroom was huge and I was exceptionally happy that the hotel acceded to my request for a bathroom with a bathtub. The beds were comfy and the pillows were of the right fluffiness. The hotel has a rooftop swimming pool and bar which was nice to chill with friends and the breakfast spread is one of the best I […] have had. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, close to most sightseeing spots"
A very pleasant hotel. Very helpful staff, they made sure we had a map with the hotel location clearly marked and the locations of the major tourist spots. Everyone spoke excellent English (our Greek is very poor!). Breakfast was very good - always plenty of options and good service. There is a nice bar and pool at the top of the hotel - but the drinks […] are pricey as you might expect in a hotel (we paid more for two non-alcoholic drinks than we did for an excellent meal later that even). It was about an easy 15 min walk from the central Metro station (Monastakis) - which is on the direct line to the main airport. If you have a small case or suitcase on wheels, you can easily walk to the hotel from the Metro station if you are reasonably fit. Our room only had a shower (no bath) so make sure you request a room type with a bath if this is important. Saying that, the shower was excellent with a nice hand shower and a large rose main shower. The hotel has free wifi (as do many places in Athens) so that was really useful. The local area looked a bit run down, but we walked to and from the hotel at night over the weekend with no problems or any concern about our safety. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comfortable hotel near to centre of Athens"
Room was very well appointed and comfortable. Great bathroom with luxurious toiletries.Check in friendly and efficient. Good buffet style breakfast. The hotel is a very easy walk from monastiraki and omonia metro stations and the sights of Athens. It is in a 'local' area near to the markets but as a single female traveller I felt very comfortable with […] walking into the central area of Athens. I would definitely stay again.

Not bad for the price. Small rooms for North American standards, however it has everything you need. Excellent location. 10 mins away from Acroplis and Plaka. close to metro stations. Rooftop restaurant is amazing. I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed at the Fresh Hotel for 1 night after returning from Santorini mad before flying home. It was the reviews on hotels.com, combined with the good price that made me pick this place. We were not disappointed! Our room was beautiful and modern, the bed super comfortable and the air conditioning very responsive. The free WiFi was also great - fast […] and easy to access.. The front desk crew were always helpful. The rooftop pool area and restaurant were very nice and the food they serve was delicious! The only tiny complaint I have is that the hot food at the breakfast buffet was more like Luke-warm food, but the fresh orange juice pretty much made up for that. I would highly recommend this hotel for a night (or longer) in Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A real find"
Great hotel - modern, comfortable, great location, good price, great food & pool. We stayed on our way to the Greek islands and it was handily located near the Acropolis, but alos centrally located between the airport where we flew in and the port where we were due to catch a ferry. Roof top restaurant had amazing food. Would definately stay here again. […] The surrounding neighbourhood wasn't amazing but was not as bad as some of the other posts seem to make out. For Athens standards it was pretty normal! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fresh Hotel - Review June 2012"
We had a very enjoyable stay at The Fresh Hotel. The room was very clean and functional. There was something for everyone at breakfast! The pool and Air Bar were lovely areas and very relaxing. The hotel is in walking distance of the Agora and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"well located hotel"
Reading some other reviews about the location before my stay, I was slightly anxious. However, the location although slightly rundown, felt safe during the day and night.

We very much enjoyed our stay at the fresh hotel. The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Such a clean, well presented hotel along with friendly staff " what more could you want".

"Fresh Hotel Athens - great but be aware of area"
I have stayed at Fresh twice now and would have no hesitation in staying again. I love the modern decor, the roof terrace and bar and also the warmth of the lobby (both the reception and the fireside area). People do need to be aware that the surrounding neighbourhood is a little 'dodgy' however. In the daytime it is fine and you are within walking […] distance of many of the sights. At night stick to taxis however and if you do that, you'll be fine. I think the good value that the hotel offers is a reflection of this and I appreciate that. I will definitely return!

"staying in Athens"
This hotel is conveniently situated for buses and the Metro. Although close to the dodgy Omonia Square it is also adjacent to the much more upmarket distirct of Monostiraki.

"great place to stay"
Hotel is located close to the Acroplis and the main shopping. The staff are friendly and helpful. Our bed was very comfortable and the rooms were clean. Only problem was the shower leaked water everywhere which is quite annoying and the bathroom is tiny. The breakfast is fantastic with fresh frui, fresh bakery items and even freshly squeezed orange […] juice. The pool area is also fantastic and gives you a great view of the Acropolis. Would definetly recommend this hotel and would stay again without hesitation Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lækkert designhotel med fantastisk tagterrasse"
Vi havde de sædvanlige to overnatninger i Athen, inden turen fik videre til øerne, og Fresh var en glimrende base med såvel swimmingpool, lækker tagterrasse og aircondition. Stilen er moderne og sprælsk, med masser af farver, og beliggenheden er fin til et par dage i Athen - det tager fem minutter til metroen til/fra lufthavnen og til/fra havnen i Piræus […] (Monastiraki). God morgenmadsbuffet og lækker, men dyr poolbar, der om aftenen bliver til tilsvarende dyr restaurant, med fantastisk udsigt til Akropolis. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
