We enjoyed our stay in hotel very much. The location was close to the sites and attractions. The only negative was the general neighborhood area which seems to be a little run down. But the accommodations and the staff were both excellent. We would highly recommend this hotel again. Very easy to find hotel from the Metro station. We would stay at this […] hotel again if visiting Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"In the heart of Athens.."
Hotel is located in the center of the city close to all the tourist attractions.. the surrounding area seems a little unsafe at night b/c the people look sketchy but its ok to be out at night. The pictures the hotel has on Hotels.com are alittle misleading. I thought they had a roof top with the picture they have on hotels.com, turns out no rooftop. […] Staff was great very helpful! Rooms were ok, food at hotel was awesome! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not only is the location of this hotel perfect, the staff are helpful and are there for you at every turn. Enjoy the proximity to the Acropolis and do the touristy thing; but the staff I'll sure let you know of perfect local hubs and hangouts. The place was clean, comfortable, modern, and welcoming.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel in downtown Athens."
Our experience was very good. The staff was at our service all the time, giving us very good directions about what to do, where to eat, etc. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and in our second stay we received a complimentary upgrade to a room with view to the Acropolis.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A hotel close to many things."
I had a wonderful experience there. The staff was very friendly, attentive, and pays attention to details. The rooms are very clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Service was excellent, hotel is well situated near the ancient agora museum.What a bustling place, lots of local life, restaurants, bazaars, shopping, antique markets galore. Close to metro. Get a room facing the back as the front is noisy, especially the motorbikes and scooters. Staff is so attentive and helpful, breakfast is ample and varied.All the […] amenities available, free WIFI. Would return again. Very clean hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great atmosphere, friendly staff, perfect location"
I'll start with the bottom line: this is the best 4 star hotel I've been to, anywhere. We read latest reviews here, read the bad ones too, and decided to give it a go. Coming to Athens with children, we had to upgrade accommodation from what were used to (3 star hotel, and 3 star hotel telling they are 4 stars...). I had a good feeling with O&B even […] before arriving, since they answered the Emails very quickly - sometimes less than 30 minutes, and my experience tells this is pretty quick, since it took other hotels in western Europe a few days to respond. Moments after we entered, wonderful Julia came smiling out of nowhere and gave us water, and we were led into our room. We were told (sorry, I don't remember his name) that we got the Acropolis suit upgrade, and it was absolutely fantastic: It's a 2 room suite, very spacious, 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets,2 DVDs with 2 flat screens TVs... And of course, a views to the Acropolis, nice by day, dreamy at nights. The beds were very very comfortable, the rooms were soundproof to outside noise. In the room was a selection of 3 different pillow sets for every person. At breakfast, there's enough to choose from - pastries, breads, cereals, sausages and eggs. On our first breakfast Julia (who also served coffee and juice personally) brought us, after we finished, 4 sweet Greek desserts. The front desk helped us with tips and directions, always with a smile, always willing.The rooms were cleaned twice a day. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I would characterise this hotel as a top choice for a short trip to Athens. High quality services. Very well trained staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location in Athens"
From the moment we arrived and throughout our stay, the staff was extremely helpful and gracious. They do an exceptional job and the room and dining area are very nice, as well as very clean. I highly recommend this place as a very safe bet when looking for somewhere to stay. I forgot to mention great location to many sites.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel, Great location"
Rated #4 on Trip Advisor. Now I know why. Excellent location. Excellent service, and extremely friendly staff. Food at restaurant easily 5 out of 5. Wishing they had other locations through out Europe. Would stay there in a heartbeat. Will stay there again if I return to Athens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

There was a dog in the neiborhod I really wanted to kill him (barking all the day. Day and night) the hotel for the first time is disappointing but when you get used to it you will find it niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"5 star customer service"
I was in Greece for 9 days and stayed at five different hotels throughout. My boyfriend and I stayed at O&B on our last night in Athens, our second hotel in Athens. Upon arrival the hotel staff immediately took our bags to our room and the man at the front desk suggested a number of things we could do and where we could go and eat off the beaten path […] since we had already done the basic touring the first few nights we were in Athens. We were taken to our room, which unprompted the hotel upgraded for free. The room was great, clean, big comfy bed (a rarity in Greece!), and a sleek bathroom. They had tissues in the bathroom -the first hotel of the trip to have them and since I had a cold throughout the trip, this was great. About 10 minutes a after we got settled in, hotel staff came with a welcome drink and some snacks, yum! Breakfast was included in the hotel room and it was a wait service breakfast with a menu. The waitress brought our food quickly and it was delicious! We could order as much as we wanted, and while we did not ask for seconds, everyone around us did without a problem. Checkout was a breeze. All in all, the room cost 102 euros and was the absolute best hotel and customer service of our trip! I would enthusiastically recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Athens! Oh, and it was very conveniently located! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A lovely break from large tourist hotels"
We had a wonderful one night stay at the O & B. It was convenient to the metro and many outdoor cafés. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the welcome treats and breakfast were delicious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is amazing - walking distance to all parts of the town (shopping, tourism, nightlife). It is in a safe area - and everyone from the front desk to the bartender (Anna) are incredibly nice and sweet!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Real Gem in Athens"
We were totally pleased with our stay at the O&B Athens Boutique Hotel. It is very modern and well maintained. They even wash the sidewalks out front every morning. The breakfast which was included had both hot and cold items and was delicious and very filling. The desk staff was extremely helpful and friendly, and spoke very good English. They arranged […] for an airport pick up when we arrived, which we arranged via email ahead of time. They also arranged a ride for us to our cruise ship. The taxis were comfortable, spacious, and at a very reasonable cost. The hotel's location is very convenient, although the surrounding neighborhood is a bit run down and covered with lots of graffiti everywhere, but so is most of Athens. The neighborhood around the hotel felt very safe even at night. The Hop On/Hop Off bus stop is only a block away, so it easy to get to all of the major sites. If we are ever in Athens again, we would not hesitate to stay at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to most must-see sites"
Fun "up and coming" neighborhood. Lots of antiqueing to be done and easy walking to best shopping and historical sites. Great staff and service. Great free breakfast with hot food. Loved our room on 4 w/small balcony view of Thissio station, Agora, old observatory. Some street noise, but none from other rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This should be your first choice to stay in Athens"
From the moment we entered the property, we were treated with the best customer service I've had in a hotel and I stay in them every week throughout the US. The location is near the sights and since Athens is so spread out, this is a key factor. The hotel and room are very modern with new everything. We relaxes in the bar after a full day of sightseeing. […] The staff did EVERYTHING they could to make our stay special. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel in range of everything"
We stayed here for our last evening in Greece, and it was unbelievable. We originally booked the wrong date through Expedia, and called the hotel. They offered us a great suite at a discount on the correct date. The suite was huge, and had a view of the Acropolis. The hotel was walking distance from street markets, restaurants, and sights. The staff […] was very helpful, and did a great just suggesting places and activities for our last night. They also arranged a cab to the airport the next morning, and prepared breakfast boxes for us to take. Just an incredible place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"O & B is a lovely little hotel close to the action"
We stayed for two nights. The staff was exceptional!Genuine Expedia guest review
The O&B left us underwhelmed. The location was convenient but on a small seedy street. We were not able to check in when we arrived. We spent the day walking the area and returned to the hotel at 1:30 but had to sit in the very small lobby until 2:00. The most disappointing thing about the hotel was there was no where to sit outside the hotel. There […] was no terrace or outside area. The room we had was extremely small. The service at breakfast as well as the breakfast itself was very good. We took a ferry to Aegina to go to the beach (it was an exceptionally hot week) and the hotel was not able to provide any type of towel,even a hand towel for us to take to the beach.. Overall I think we expected more because of the excellent reviews we read about the hotel. Next time we will definitively look for something a little roomier with a terrace.

"4 star all the way!"
From the minute you enter the lobby you will know you have made a wise choice with O&B. I think there must have been a contest to see who could be the most helpful among the staff because they are almost tripping over one another to help you out with something. Weather in the hallway or restaurant everyone you make eye contact with smiles and greets […] you. The hotel is situated below the hill that The Acropolis sits on and is about a 15-20 minute walk away depending on your pace. The big flea market is about a five minute walk. The rooms are big by European standards and are decorated well also. The Gazi (club) district and most of the high end shopping are about a10-15 minute walk as well. My girlfriend and I also ate at several restaurants in the area and had wonderful experiences at all of them. There is a wall behind the check in counter that has half a dozen or so (recent) awards that they have won from travel websites and they are gonna have to make more room on that wall. Book early because it tends to sell out. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was wonderful - the staff was exceptionally nice and accommodating. We would probably stay there again. The only drawback is the neighborhood. Many people we talked to like the location but we found it a little rough! However, it was close to a metro, train station, the Agora and close to the main attractions of Greece. The hotel restaurant […] is quite good. We had two meals there and found the prices and food to be very nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Friendly, comfortable & a GREAT breakfast!"
Every employee we met seemed sincerely friendly and professional. We were immediately made to feel welcome when the front desk noticed from my husband's passport that it was his birthday. As we unpacked, a giant slice of cheesecake with a birthday candle was sent up! (Along with ouzo and a few savory nibbles.) All the food served at O&B was extraordinarily […] good. The breakfast had so much variety you could never get bored. The room was very comfortable, although the bathroom could have been brighter. It was an easy walk almost everywhere. We would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great hotel, awful neighborhood"
hotel is modern, clean, nice breakfast, good staff, wifi. My reservation about recommending this hotel is the neighborhood. It is walking distance to Acropolis, Plaka, and Constitution Square but the surrounding shops and people were run down causing it to feel seedy and dangerous when returning home in the evenings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable room and great service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel, staff, food, drinks, service, friendliness, and ambience were all terrific. Although the little street looked a little dicey, it really wasn't. It had funky charm and was convenient for walking to various cafes and shops with ruins in sight. Trains and cabs were within easy reach. The proprietors were so helpful and friendly esp Marlena and […] Julie. Authentic and delicious Greek food and drinks were always available! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back.

"Staff was great!"
We stayed here for one night before leaving for the islands. It was our first time in Athens and upon arrival we were greeted in our room with a complimentary plate of snacks and front desk staff was helpful with a map and answering all our questions. We had an early morning ferry, earlier than the breakfast buffet and they packed us breakfast without […] us even asking. They had a cab ready for us to go to port as well. Spa quality bathroom. Great experience- hassle free! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel. Close to the Metro and Acropolis"
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helped organize my bus tour to Delphi and answer any questions I had. They give you a small welcoming tray of food when you check in. If you are there on a Sunday, at 11 am is their big changing of the guard ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It is a 15 minute walk away […] to the Parliament building and it is very impressive. After the ceremony they do allow pictures to be taken with the guards on duty. Get there about 30 minutes early. If you want to save money, take the Metro. It is a 40 minute ride to and from the airport and is 8 Euros each way. Get off at the Thissoli station, walk 2 short blocks, make a right, walk another short block and make another right, walk about 300 feet and the hotel is on your right.

"Great location but work to do!"
I thought there was too much emphasis on high tech gadgetry in the room and not enough on basic services - hot water one night, flexibility with booking dates, nonchalance about street repair work being done right below my room, etc. The location however is terrific. My first impression was negative given all the graffiti in the immediate surroundings […] and street junk sellers, but I decided it was part of the vibe and OK.

Employees were awesome. They brought a welcome snack to our room. Also had breakfast boxes for us in the morning due to early flight. Hotel is off a side street that isn't very appealing, but hotel is very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A jewel in an unexpected neighborhood."
O & B is a fantastic hotel. The staff are very polite and helpful. It's clean and comfortable. The neighborhood may make one worry initially, but it's safe. It is is close to (5-minute walk) Monastraki metro station for direct trains to the airport. Acropolis is a ten-minute walk. I will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfort at the center of the action"
O&B Boutique Hotel is stylish, comfortable, and in the center of all of the action in Athens. 2 minute walk to Plaka, minutes to the Acropolis, cafes, restaurants, bars, night clubs, etc. Our hotel room was very clean, the bed was very comfortable, the AC worked great, and despite the location just off of a very busy street, it was surprisingly quiet […] in the room. The breakfast is also delicious and conveniently available until 11 AM each day. A wonderful hotel - we'll definitely stay here again when we return to Athens.
