we stayed 4 nights, the room was very small but clean. The bathroom was so small, unconfortable. Location was excellent, near the Acropolis. Staff: only Maria was very helpful and nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel for great price."
The Attalos Hotel is a good hotel with decent pricing in Athens. The neighborhood is good and its location is fantastic. If you are looking for a clean place close to every attraction Attalos hotel is the place to be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a 3 Star!"
When traveling, my requirement is always to have clean room. I never thought adding "updated clean room" to my requirements. The hotel was clean, and the staff was nice, but this is definitely not a 3 star hotel. The furniture and bathroom amenities was definitely, at best, 2 star. Everything looked like it was from the 80's. My husband even said how […] this reminded him of some of the hotels he visited in the middle east back when he was a young boy. You couldn't tell the hair dryer was a hair dryer, it was a large box like thing with an accordion hose, like you would see on a vacuum cleaner, and the shower was hand held. There was a fixture you could hang it on, but it was in the center of the tub which got the entire bathroom wet if you didn't face it to the wall (which then meant that you had to practically lean up against the wall to get the water). The location was definitely good, but I wouldn't stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The neighborhood may be a little shabby, but this hotel was excellent. Great, friendly staff from the front desk to the bar on the roof. Clean, equipped rooms. Great value and so close to plaka and acropolis. Metro stop right down the street. Would definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient to major historical sights"
Hotel staff was very accommodating, allowing early checkin and late check out. Room was a step above basic, since it had telephone, TV with a couple of English language channels, hair dryer, and bathtub. A lot of noise was communicated between bathrooms, but the room itself didn't have those problems. Balcony overlooked a lot of graffiti, but that's […] Athens. We enjoyed our stay, since the hotel was conveniently located to Metro and to major historical sites. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and View"
The hotel is in a good location 5 minutes from Monastaki Square. And the metro to the Airport and Port. A very easy walk to the accopolis and from the rooftop bar the best view of the Acropolis. Would recommend this hotel to anyone. Also has breakfast so that was good for us. The only problem we had was that the TV had no sound.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A excellent hotel for people interested in Athens"
Situated in the heart of Athens, in the geometrical center of most important historical sites, this hotel is the ideal choice for people interested in seeing Athens and its surroundings rather than sleeping and drinking in a 5-star hotel. The front desk was attended around the clock by courteous and helpful staff. We arrived there in a state of despair […] after having been robbed (new iPhone 5) by a team of professional thieves operating in the airport metro. The hotel manager in charge promptly assisted us in contacting AT&T in the USA in order to close our wireless account, and then gave directions to the police station to report the theft. The cost of the international call was absorbed by the hotel, hence we did not have to pay anything for this service. In the subsequent days, we received precise directions to all the sites we wanted to visit. The rooms are equipped with some of the most silent air-conditioning units, which differentiates them from more expensive hotels, all equipped with powerful and noisy units. The hotel has an office room where we have able to access our Internet accounts in our special situation (lost smart phone). Also, we have been able to watch the news on a state-of-the-art LCD TV set. Altogether, the hotel matched all our expectations based on its description in its Expedia.com entry. We will continue to use Expedia.com in all our future travel arrangements. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is very conveniently located. The rooms are comfortable. The rooftop area is amazing. The hostess on the rooftop is very nice and creative with the drinks. The view of the acropolis at night is well worth the stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Greece with a smile"
The Attalos Hotel met all of our expectations. It was well located, especially when we could see the Parthenon from the rooftop garden . Within easy walking distance of a subway. We felt very safe and were welcomed by a courteous from desk, especially Maria and Kosta when we arrived back from a day of touring. Rooms were quite adequate and clean. Would […] return anytime!

"Not fancy, but excellent location and views."
This hotel and the rooms are basic and clean, so don't expect a Hyatt type experience. However, it is just a one minute walk from the metro line, and a block away from the Plaka and tavernas. The views of the Acropolis from the rooftop deck are fantastic, and many of the rooms have patios with views as well. The breakfast is sufficient with hardboiled […] eggs, Greek yogurt, fruit, cereal, tea, coffee, pastries, etc.. They have WIFI in th rooms, and computers with a printer downstairs. Overall, it is a good choice if staying in Athens for a few days. The rooms are very basic and okay, and we were fine with them since we were gone all day sightseeing.

"great hotel, great location"
The staff were friendly and very helpful. They gave good recommendations. The location is excellent. It is walking distance from just about everything. Anything not in walking distance is a short train ride away. And the train...walking distance. The hotel is surrounded great food and entertainment. The hotel also has a great rooftop bar with a superb […] view of the acropololis. My room also had a balcony and an amazing view of the acropolis (but I don't how many rooms have this perk).

"Extremely helpful reception desk"
I faced a serious problem with airlines on my way back home to India and had to stay back at Atalos hotel for a day. The help I received from the 3 Receptionists of the hotel can only be compared with your own family members. I will never forget Atalos.Moreover, easy location, Surrounded by eateries. Subway is like next door. Clean and comfortable. […] The only negetive issue was the same breakfast every day. They can improve it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good clean basic hotel"
The Attalos Hotel in Athens is a good, clean, basic 2 star hotel. It is 2 blocks from the subway, and 4 blocks from the start of the climb to the Acropolis. I would highly recommend a stay if you want to be close to Souvlaki row, tourist sites, and to have easy access to the subway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location of the hotel is the best part. It is on a busy street not far from a metro stop. There are vendors and a lot of shops on this street. The hotel is also not far from the flea market, which has even more shops! The hotel was okay. You get what you pay for. When I went, they were repairing the top two floors. Breakfast was included, but I […] did not eat from the hotel. I actually had two rooms, as they switched me half way through my stay. They said the water would be off in my old room. The first room was small. It consisted of two twin beds. I didn't really feel it was all that clean. The bathroom was super small. Stand up shower. Small, old television with a couple of english channels. Free wifi. The second room was way better. It was bigger and included a balcony. It seemed newer/cleaner. The bathroom was bigger and included a tub. The bed was queen size. If you can choose, I suggest getting a room with a balcony. On a side note: A lot of the sites close early, like 2:00 pm. I don't know if this is just a seasonal thing or not. You can get a ticket from the Acropolis that lets you see other sites as well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a stay in Athens"
I stayed in the Attalos hotel in Nov 2012. It is a great hotel to stay in Athens. It is very close to the Monaraski squre, which is the center of the city. The room is clean, there is free internet, and the reception desk is very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Very good budget hotel well located"
Just north of the tourist central of Monastiraki square make this a well located hotel . Rooms are fairly large and basically no frill not a designer boutique style hotel but comfortable and clean with renewed bathrooms. The breakfast buffet is excellent with a pleasant room and a great roof top terrace with killer view of acropolis.Genuine Expedia guest review
"BEST Athens Hotel: Fantastic Staff & Location"
The Attalos is the best hotel in Athens. The location is fantastic and cannot be beaten-- it's right between the Plaka and Psiri; safe location and within walking distance of everything that a tourist would want to see. The room was impeccably clean, and although simple, was everything one would need. The rooftop bar is beautiful, free Wi-Fi and a real […] computer lounge is a nice touch. Best of all, however, is the FANTASTIC STAFF-- they were nice, always available, had great suggestions for everything, including jogging paths, best times to visit attractions, and were cheerful and awake when we had to leave at 3am for the airport. Overall, fantastic value for money, and a great experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location, amazing rooftop lounge."
This hotel is in a great location; near the Acropolis, Mostariki Station, Plaka, market, ect. The room is small and the bathroom was very cozy, but I expected as much for a in-town European hotel. What blew me away was the roof top bar/lounge. Amazing views, great employees, luggage storage, fantastic location... If you're in Athens to do some sightseeing, […] the location is perfect. Employees spoke servicable English and were gracious hosts. I recommend it to anyone that doesn't need a 5 star bathroom. If I get back to Athens again I will be staying here.

"Overall a good stay"
We stayed for four nights and we were given a triple room with balcony even though we booked a double without a balcony. Location is very central. It's close to Monastiraki Square, metro and the markets. It is a 15 minute walk to Syntagma Square. There are many cafes nearby and a grocery store if you walk toward the end of the street (opposite the square). Reception […] was friendly and helpful. Wifi worked great! It's only place we stay in Greece with a bathtub. We didn't use it but at least the entire floor didn't get soaked. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I booked this place because everyone, to include local travel agents, said it was a bargain for the location. The staff were very nice and the room was clean and decent (but no frills). If you have difficulty sleeping, you may want to book another hotel (sounds seemed to carry into the rooms from the halls and the street--especially on Sat night). I […] had no complaints and plan to return there for one night enroute home. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stay Here When in Athens"
Don't be fooled by the two-star rating -- the Atalos hotel is in a great location and the price can't be beat.

"Overall a very good home base for a trip to Greece"
Staff were very straightforward and always available twenty-four hours. Room maintenance was regular and satisfactory. Lounge area / internet access was satisfactory (with no problems printing boarding passes, etc.) and air-conditioned. Wi-fi also worked in the hotel room. Breakfast buffet included a number of options (fruits and veggies, cheeses, […] meats, rolls, cereals, juice, coffee, milk) and had convenient hours for those waking up very early or a little later. Rooftop bar wasn't always stocked with EVERYTHING you might want, but the bartender was friendly and reasonable. The view from the top of the hotel is gorgeous and relaxing at night, when the air has cooled off some. The geographical location of the hotel is pretty convenient, near the Monasteráki metro station. You can walk to many of the major tourist sites or shopping areas, or there's easy metro access. The hotel staff can also call you a cab. In addition, many of the day-tour coach buses can pick you up directly from here. Overall, this place was a very good home base for my trip. The convenient location combined with the level of comfort and service would be hard to beat. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location for tourists"
The rooftop bar had reasonable prices and fantastic views of the Acopolis. It is conveniently located within walking distance of all the sights and only a few blocks from a major metro stop so it's easy to get to both the port and the airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
"For the money, amazing deal in Athens"
The Attalos Hotel is extremely close to all of the attractions in Athens, just a few blocks from the Monastiraki rail station. In fact, if you're lucky, some of the rooms have acropolis views from the balconies, as mine did. Great bonus. Staff was extremely helpful and affable. Easy access to/from Piraeus, just a splendid location. Will definitely be […] staying here every time I come through Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location in Athens"
This hotel is not a luxury palace, but has internet, a/c, great showers, etc. The rooftop bar is GREAT-it is for guests of the hotel, and you can buy a drink if you want or just sit and look at the fabulous view of the Acropolis. The people are very friendly and helpful, and speak English. The only small downside is that they charge for breakfast-but […] we just went to the awesome coffee bar across the street. Also, very convenient to metro, with direct connection to airport. The location is right in the middle of the tourist area, and was great for sightseeing. I highly recommend this hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was recommended in my Athens travel book and a few other websites I used when researching for our trip, and it totally lived up to the recommendations. The location is amazing - steps away from the Monastiraki metro stop and the Monastiraki flea market, and within walking distance of the Acropolis and the neighborhoods of Psiri and Plaka, […] which are really nice areas for eating, shopping, and strolling around. We opted not to get breakfast at the hotel, but there are really nice cafes and restaurants a few steps away. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful when we asked for recommendations for evening activities. The rooms were decent and mostly clean. There was a rug in our room that probably could have been vacuumed more often. The bathroom was a little cramped. Our room had a balcony, and there is also a nice view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar. The room was air conditioned, though the AC doesn't run when you're not in the room, so it was pretty hot whenever we came back. Also, considering that this hotel is located on a pretty busy street, the rooms are very nice and quiet. They also have a luggage storage room, which we used on our last day after checking out. There is no attendant in the room itself, but they said they have cameras to monitor it. I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location, Quaint"
It was a nice place to stay if you want to be in the middle if everything. The roof top bar was also a great place to hang out! Overall very pleased, only downfall was the price for what you get. I should of waited till the day before or two days before to book, I went to Crystal City hotel and paid half for nicer furnishings, bigger/hot breakfast, […] and a bigger room. The only difference was location, but I would trade one metro fare for that! Breakfast was a little meal of cold cuts, cold cereal, fruit, and yogurt. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastic Location & Responsive Staff"
The hotel is super-convenient to the metro stop, Montistiraki, which an easy 30-40 minute ride from the airport. Literally, you walk out of the metro station and it takes less than two minutes to find this hotel. The location was very central to most of what you would want to do in Athens, that is, walking distance. Also, we and several other guests […] brought up an issue with another set of guests' screaming child, and it was dealt with promptly and efficiently by the person working reception. Highly recommended place for the price, staff professionalism, and convenient location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel, Great location"
Our family of four stayed at the Attalos for 6 nights in November 2011. At first glance, the neighborhood looks a bit sketchy, but I never felt unsafe. The staff was very helpful. The hotel is very basic, but the location makes up for it. The hotel breakfast is a bit pricy, but kids eat free. Also, when you compare it to eating breakfast at one of the […] nearby restaurants, it's not a bad deal. It's just up the road from a meat market that has a great restaurant, Papadreou's has great Greek food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the Monastiraki metro station (service to/from ATH airport), and about a 6-minute walk from the Omonia station (to/from Piraeus port). It's also right on the border between the Plaka and Psiri neighborhoods, and about a 10-minute walk from the foot of the Acropolis. The roof-top bar/restaurant has a very cool outdoor […] seating area with a perfect view of the Parthenon. Our room also had a balcony with the same view. This is not a high-end, luxury hotel. The room might look a little out-dated to the average American traveler. The hotel is a great value for a clean, safe room with a friendly staff in an outstanding location.

"Would Use Again."
We enjoyed staying at this hotel mostly because of the great service at the front desk....the view of the Acropolis is fantastic...two blocks from the Krakos neighborhood which is great....if I was to offer one recommendation it would be you need new pillows and a new longer shower curtain....but all in all would recommend to our friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably Priced Hotel"
The hotel has seen better days (furnishings are older), but the room was clean. I walked to the acropolis and around the markets from the hotel. The neighborhood was fine, but I was in by 8pm. I just wanted a place to sleep for the night before I caught a flight. Also close to the train station.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to everything in Athens"
Very good budget hotel with a great view of Acropolis from the roof bar, 300m (yards) to Monastiraki metro, 15 mins walk to Acropolis, Tower of the winds, 5 mins to Central Market.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location to sights"
Hotel basics: I found Attalos to be very typical of European hotels. Small hotel, with a small elevator, and small rooms. We did not have breakfast included, so we did not eat at the hotel. Our room faced the courtyard, which I believe is ideal at this hotel because it is located on a busy street. The beds were extra firm (we have a pillow top bed at […] home, so this was uncomfortable for us), so if you like that, then they were good. There are plenty of pillows and extra blankets in the room too. There is a TV, small fridge, and telephone in the room. No clock/alarm clock. But the hotel does offer wake up calls. The roof top deck is fantastic…great views of the city and the Acropolis. Whenever you leave the hotel, you will leave your room key at the front desk (a somewhat standard procedure in Europe). I would stay at this hotel again. Other tidbits: By tram/train, it takes about 45 minutes to get to the airport to and from this hotel. It takes less time to get to/from Pireas port (about 20 minutes). Athens has a lot of graffiti. The Attalos hotel is located in the central area of Athens, so the street it is located on (Athenas) is heavily graffiti. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great deal in the heart of Athens"
I stayed at a few hotels during my stay and the Attalos provided by far the best combination of affordability, location and comfort. It isn't anything fancy, but it is very affordable and in a really prime location in the heart of the city. The beds aren't the most comfortable, but the rooms on higher floors had great views, if somewhat small windows […] to see them from. The room is not a place you'll want to hang out and while away the day, but if you're just looking for a place to stash your clothes and grab some sleep between full days of sightseeing or business (I was in town for both), it really can't be beat.

"One night stay before going to the islands"
For me this hotel was great because it is barely 100 m from the train station where you have to change from the airport line to the train line that takes you to pireus port.
