"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.

"Great customer service"
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.

"Fantastic small hotel"
Very nice hotel, well situated to the Acropolis and nightlife. Staff was warm, friendly and very helpful. Welcomed with pates of olives and cheese and refreshing drinks. The rooms were extremely comfortable and clean. The hotel seems to really have the interest of their guests in mind and go out of their way to make your stay stress free. We only stayed […] for a day but would definitely stay again if the chance arose. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were pretty clean and the beds were the most comfortable we have encountered. The tv was a bit glitchy but we didn't use it much. The breakfast was pretty standard but good. Location is close to major areas but in a nice quiet street. Always felt safe too. Would stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel was fantastic. In a great part of town with terrific restaurants nearby. Breakfast every morning is fresh and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Right near two major subway stations. Walk to the acropolis and a number of other attractions such as the Plaka and top restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review

Great location near Plaka, walking distance to the Agora and Akropolis. The room was spacious and had a great, equally spacious, bathroom.

"Great hotel & restaurant"
Staff were super friendly & extremely helpful with always a smile on their faces. Rooms were great, clean, & modern. Breakfast was included and offered a good variety. Location of hotel was within walking distance to most attractions in Athens. Restaurant also served some of the best food we had in Athens, so not sure why they are not busy. The blonde […] waitress also made wonderful sangrias! Only downside were event the good rooms did not have great views, but you can see the Acropolis standing in front of the hotel.

"it had everything otstanding but the room space"
My husband and I loved this hotel. It is very clean and the receptionists are extremely helpful. Right upon our arrival, they gave us very detailed information and maps on the sightseeing, which is very helpful. The hotel is literally 1 minutes walk away from the metro that goes to the ferry station (we took ferry to Santorini) and 2 or 3 minutes away […] from another metro close to Plaka. It is less than 10 minutes walk to Plaka. Great location. We had to check out before 6:00am to catch the ferry, the receptionist even packed a FULL BAG of breakfast for us so that we could take it with us. The ONLY thing you might not like is that the room is very small (which we don't care that much, compared to the great location and nicest service). I would recommend this to friends/families and go back there again if I visited Athens again (we stayed at Intercontinental for one night, it was spacious, but very tourist-UNFRIENDLY location and service) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great pick. Right by the busy streets of Plaka."

"Wonderful and close to the Acropolis!!"
If you are traveling to Athens, you must stay at the O&B Hotel off Ermou. It is definitely within in walking distance to the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. The rooms are nice and clean. What you would expect staying in NYC. The shower is amazing. And there's free wi-fi in each room. Awesome. But what makes this hotel amazing is the staff. They […] are attentive and helpful to whatever you may need. They make the hotel the gem that it is. They are wonderful! The hotel offers a complimentary breakfast buffet that is quite tasty. The restaurant also has a full dinner menu, that is very good. Try the chocolate pie. SO delicious!! The hotel is also close to several different restaurants that are near the Theissen Station and the market. Seriously, the location of this hotel cannot be beat! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near the Acropolis"
Having stayed in this hotel twice, my only complaint has to be the other guests. Some of the Americans staying in adjoining rooms were beyond agrivating (I can complain about Americans being one myself). Other than that, the facilities and staff were top notch. The location (at first glance) looks a little sketchy, but it is really just a short walk […] to most of the attractions. Very close to the Acropolis. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff were all extremely helpful and friendly. Our rooms were really nice and comfortable. The views of the Acropolis from the upper floors were great and the balcony/terrace was a very pleasant place to enjoy a meal. The restaurant has surprisingly good food and the breakfast every morning was fantastic and big. There was a great local restaurant […] nearby also, Mummy's Cooking, which we really enjoyed. It's close to the metro and easy to get to. Some of the surrounding neighborhood is a little run down, but I always felt safe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to major sights and shopping"
Front desk and dining staff were very gracious and helpful. Room though small was very nice and modern. The area around hotel at first appearance seemed like an area to be concerned about. But we had no problems and a two block walk put us on the promenade to the Acropolis.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the sights."
I really like this hotel. The room was nice, although a bit small, as is common with European hotels. Wandered randomly and basically made my way to the Acropolis. It's that close. The neighborhood is fine, although Athens isn't as tidy as most European cities. The graffiti and such on the streets is pervasive, and very visible around the hotel. The […] service was good, no complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The O & B Boutique Hotel is classy & charming."
The O & B Boutique Hotel is classy, charming, spotless, and most welcoming. My wife and I stayed for 5 nights over the Eastern Easter holiday. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. From the moment we entered the hotel the staff showed us nothing but smiles, kindness and helpfulness. Once we got to our room, a Superior, we were brought water, which was followed […] minutes later by two trays with our welcoming drinks � Wow. As European hotel rooms tend to be small compared to American-style hotels, we were glad to have chosen a Superior. The shower was spacious and offered an over-sized shower head. After spending each unseasonably hot day (30c-32c) touring Athens, it was absolute heaven to stand underneath the shower head and feel the coolness of the cascading water. The hotel is very close to the Metro and just about every important site. The buffet breakfast was very enjoyable. Each morning we were met by restaurant staff with a big smile and a hearty �good morning.� Believe me, this is the place to stay when you visit Athens. I recommend it highly.

"Friendly helpful staff"
We stayed here for two nights and it was a intimate boutique hotel within walking distance from many restaurants and from the major sights.

"Great Hotel in Funky Neighborhood"
The hotel is great and the staff was superlative, however, the surrounding neighborhood may not suitable for all travelers. It was safe, but there was a lot of local color/character.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing customer service! (an important factor)"
We were so happy with our hotel choice. I would say the hotel is located more in (south) Psiri than Thiseio (still close to everything), but the hotel itself is lovely and all the staff are wonderful. It felt like all the staff genuinely wanted you to have a great time and were more than willing to help you with anything you needed. There's a good & […] affordable gyros restaurant right around the corner. From the beginning at check-in we felt very welcomed as the front desk escorts you to the room and even provides a welcome snack of cucumbers, olives and feta cheese, and even upon check-out we received a to-go breakfast since we had to leave at 5:00am to catch our flight out. Overall, we had an amazing stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The location of the hotel is perfect.. right in the heart of Athens and on ermou street which the is most convenient place to visit all the scenic spots + shopping that Athens has to offer. Lovely property, Well lit and kept rooms, great service and the advice of the staff is great.. Many thanks to Dimitriz for his apt guidance.

"Pleasant, helpful staff"
We were tired and we enjoyed the pleasant room. The location was great because we were able to stroll out to the road up to the Parthenon by only going a block through the busy streets. The gentleman at the desk voluntarily showed us where to go on a map so we could make the most of our time. They arranged a private driver to take us to the cruise port […] because there was a transport strike on the day, and this made things very easy. The room was small, but attractive and comfortable. The dining room was bright with a good breakfast offering. On arrival, a nice Greek specialty snack was delivered to our room. They went the extra mile to make us happy. Great hotel.

"Good hotel to visit the Acropolis and environs"
The young man on the desk was extremely helpful and informative. A few minutes after being shown to our room a young lady knocked at our door with a small tasting plate including an aperatif which was a lovely surprise. Room and bathroom was modern with a large shower. The only drawback was the low level of lighting in the bathroom. Breakfast was plentiful […] and nice. Location was ideal for our short stay - close enough to the Acropolis and to restaurants. Would be happy to stay there again. No parking at the hotel but we were directed to a private carpark nearby which was only 5 Euros a day with an attendant who was very pleasant and friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Choice for Athens"
Great hotel, very comfortable, great breakfast, friendly/helpful staff, clean, close enough to walk to tourist attractions, but not on top of the madness. Hotel restaurant and bar very elegant, but much under utilized. I hope they can contine to support that service, We took advantage of the complimentary breakfast, with a good variety of eggs, bacon, […] fruits, cereals, sweets, fresh squeezed orange juice, latte, espresso, etc. Value $22 Euro.... i.e. what you would pay if not included. Only issue, we had a window facing the street, and the outside lights were difficult to block out during the evening. When we discovered the lights were in the outside window sill of our room, we asked the front desk if they could help. They told us they turn the lights out if they bother their guests. We slept much better the second night. We rode the subway in from the airport, no transfers required, about 7 minute walk to hotel from station (monastiraki). 12 Euro total for two. Make sure you are on the right train, not obvious. When you come out of the station downtown, walk down Ermou street, the hotel is on a side street about three blocks down Ermou, a brown building visible from Ermou. Thisio station might put you closer, but requires transfer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
