"Great Hotel, poor location"
I booked this hotel because it was low price. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised, it far exceeded my expectations. Good size room, good quality services and very helpful staff. The location of the hotel is the problem. Its close to two metro stations and some museums, but I did not feel safe going out alone at night, as the location was so run […] down.

"Perfect for what we needed!"
This hotel is located very close to Viktoria Station which itself, is set in a nice square with great restaurants and bars. The staff in the hotel set it apart from others. They were always very friendly, and helpful. They were happy to bring drinks to our rooms or serve us in the bar, whatever we liked, and always with a smile and a chat. I've rated […] the hotel 5 in every category because it had everything advertised, I wasn't expecting luxury, but what I did get was well worth the price I paid. Thank you Centrotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice affordable hotel..."
The hotel is nice, is a walking distance from the subway station. You would never expect such a nice hotel in that sort of neighborhood. We had no problem at all, even walking around in the night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful, friendly and extremely helpful staff."
Our 2 night stay at Centrotel was made very enjoyable due to the very helpful staff who were happy to help us with organising our activities, buses, trains and directions. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was great and the hotel close to train station. Only worry was being told by others that the area was not very safe. However this appeared to […] be not too much of a problem. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great value hotel"
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. When we arrived they bumped us up to a bigger room because it was our first time there. I'm not sure what our original room would have been like but the one we got was fantastic. Clean, spacious, bright, modern, good bathroom, a balcony. The staff were helpful and friendly too. The hotel is a […] bit outside the very centre/tourist area of the city, but we got around very easily using the Metro, which is only five minutes walk away. The quality of the room and the hotel were far above what I expected for the price. I would recommend this hotel to any travellers on a budget visiting Athens. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"This is not a two star hotel"
Im not sure how they create their ratings, but this is not a two star.... it is MUCH BETTER. The hotel was recently renovated and is stunning. Room rates were inexpensive. The room was spacious and clean. Although the view was nothing special, the room had a small balcony. The people working in the hotel were kind and very informative. They recommended […] some great places for dinner. We took the subway from the airport and once we found our stop and got our bearings, it took about 5-7 minutes to walk to the hotel. The area seems a little shady, but we felt comfortable walking hand in hand. We would definately stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great value hotel"
hotel was excellent, extremely good value! The surrounding area isn't that bad and the city centre is just minutes away in a taxi. Highly recommended!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was great. It was very clean and in a great location with proximity to the metro. The staff were all very customer service oriented and gave us many wonderful restaurant suggestions that we would not otherwise have gotten.Genuine Expedia guest review
The only reason I haven't given this hotel an overall rating of 5 is because of the location. It is very convenient to get around with two metro stations near by. However, there are some very shady streets in the vicinity.Genuine Expedia guest review
i liked to hotel and the room was nice too.The location was however not the best as it is in the middle of a residential area . Great value for money , if staying overnight/short stay .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
overly we got our money's worth, a pleasant and modernly furnished hotel in the midst of a less attractive neighborhood, however, proximity to the nearest metro station compensates. We were surprised to find out that price did not include breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for money."
Exceptional stay at this beautifully renovated budget-rate hotel in June 2013. Came to Athens for 2.5 days to see the Acropolis and National Archaeological Museum. Location is in a neighbourhood off the immediate tourist path but within 30 min walking distance of Monastiraki, or a quick metro ride to Monastiraki, Syntagma or Acropolis (Victoria and […] Larissa station are both easy walking distance from the hotel.) The staff was extremely pleasant, helpful and patient. Highly recommended. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Everything you need & more"
The staff here are lovely, very helpful and personal. My balcony on 4th floor faced the street but - by the time I locked shut the metal blinds (great for daytime ventilation), locked the glass doors, pulled the net curtains then the thick curtains, and turned the air-con on - I never heard a squeak (the road isn't busy anyway). Balcony is a useful […] comfortable size, faced away from the sun apart from early morn & late eve - PERFECT ! After 5 nights I was quite attached to the quirks of neighbours across the road living at the same altitude. Cannot recommend this place highly enough !!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Really nice hotel, close to the metro and the archaeological museum is in walking distance. Plenty of nice places to eat nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY"
Centrotel is a great hotel. The staff were very helpful with organizing transport, recommending places eat and with directions etc. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The only downside is that it is situated in a bit of a grubby area. There are however some reasonable cafes in Victoria Sq.which is […] only a short walk away. There is also a metro station at Victoria Sq. It takes about 45 minutes to walk to the Acropolis. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were a very high standard, really clean and everything you could need (air con was a life saver). A lot of businesses in the area are closed down, and the neighbourhood isa little run down generally. It is really close to the metro station though, and only ten minutes from the centre of Athens. Fantastic value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value hotel"
The hotel offers a great value, if you are looking for a place to stay in the center and if you are with a car and a family. the room was spacious, clean in a very good condition, like new with a nice balcony. The location is not the best, and also the view from the balcony but the staff is very helpful and kind, and the garage is included in the price! […] To walk around during the day, now problem, and very close to main attractions. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good value hotel in Athen"
From airport take train to Larissa Station or take metro to Victoria Station. Next time I come back to Athen, I will stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect affordable hotel close enough to everythin"
The staff were always happy to help, spoke perfect English and were enthusiastic about their city. Our room was always clean and the hydro massage bath was a very nice touch! Room service was affordable and quick. The balcony and French doors were nice for breakfast each morning. I understand previous comments about the location, there is a derelict […] building here and there, but it is so close to two main metro stations, a good variety of cafes etc. Would defo use again.

"Good value budget hotel in central Athens"
For the price this is an exceptionally good hotel in central Athens. It is modern with reasonably well equipped rooms and good quality furnishings, bathroom, etc. I was at the rear of the hotel with a small furnished balcony overlooking a central courtyard surrounded by residential blocks. I had booked a small room but was surprised to find it had both […] a double and a single bed, so plenty of room for one person. This area, 10 mins walk, to the north of Omonia Square is rather quieter than the area where many of the central hotels are. It is a 5 minute walk to the nearest metro station (Victoria) and not much further to Larissa station. The street is reasonably quiet so the rooms at the front should not be disturbed by noise although the street is poorly lit. There are a a number of bars and cafes close-by at Victoria Square. As a regular traveller to Athens I would certainly stay here again and recommend to friends. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The room was very nice and clean. I think they cleaned it twice a day! Also the stuff very helpful. They upgraded us to a larger room with no cost at all. Very modern and brand new hotel! The Jacuzzi was also a plus...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very bad area to stay - avoid!!"
We were led astray by all the great reviews of this place. It is in a very poor area of Athens and far from any attractions. We did not feel safe walking at night in the area and you have to walk to the metro to get anywhere. Not really any places to eat or have breakfast around the hotel. The hotel itself is fine, but there is a destroyed building […] right across the street, which is what you will have a view of. We were really dismayed with the area. When we told locals where we were staying they frowned at us and shook their heads. Not what you want to see on vacation or any other time! Really, find a better place to stay!! We paid for three nights in advance, but checked out after the second day without a refund so that tells you what kind of hotel it is. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice hotel at a great price. Everywhere was clean and the staff were friendly. Just 5 mins walk to nearest Metro station and only one stop from the start of the touristy areas.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good budget hotel"
Good budget hotel with very friendly and helpful hotel staff. The room was clean enough, large and had a small balcony. The location was ok; away from the main tourist areas and more residential but if you like walking, it's good since you can get away from the hustle and bustle.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good base for getting around Athens"
Brilliant hotel, good base for Athens sightseeing, near to metro station but not in a nice area. Not a pleasant walk back from metro to hotel late at night, quite dark and dirty and smelly. Hotel is more like a 4 star very nice and would be very expensive in a nicer area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value and service!"
Centrotel was a wonderful place for a central location close to two metro stations, not the nicest area of Athens but we never felt unsafe. We will mention that a lack of street signs in Athens make this place hard to find initially!!! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the rooms are lovely and clean as is the lobby and overall appearance […] of this hotel. One young girl behind the front desk in particular whose name we neglected to get was fantastic, providing us with valuable restaurant tips and the advice on the best time to see certain sights! Highly recommend staying here for the great value and service! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good city break."
The hotel was a delight, clean and welcoming. It is located conveniently close (3-5 minute walk) from the Metro and Victoria Square where there are ample eating and drinking places. The continental breakfast very good value for money 7.50 Euros. Unfortunately, Athens is really suffering, dirty streets and beggars. Main tourist area OK but outside that […] just be aware of pickpockets. Be 'street wise' when there, do not have on show valuable jewelry, etc. Transport around Athens is very easy and quick so visit and help their economy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This was a really nice hotel to come back to after a day of sightseeing in Athens. What you get is amazing for the price - it's a excellent value for money - i'd happily stay here again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"An excellent hotel with excellent staff"
The room was cleaned to the best standard every day and the staff very friendly and competent. Check in & check out were extremely smooth and fast. The whole hotel looks very smart and clean. The room was spacious enough and the bathroom in particular was of a high standard. The safe is very simple to use and therer is even a massage setting on the […] bath tub. The area it is in is not touristy and looks quite run down but don't let that put you off because even at midnight there were plenty of people on the streets so I never found myself on a dark street with nobody else around so I felt safe. The hotel is close to two metro stops from different lines so it is convenient from a travel point of view. The people in there and all over Athens are so used to tourists they don't really think of it so even though I might have looked like a tourist I did't feel conspicuous. I cannot think of anything critical I can say about the hotel. The air conditioning worked great and the fridge didn't even buzz. Overall we had a very happy stay at Centrotel and in Athens.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights and we were very pleased. I am very, very picky when it comes to a clean hotel and this one fulfill my expectations big time. Hotel is located just couple blocks from the Metro station so no need for taxis anywhere including the airport.

"Very nice hotel"
Very nice hotel. The neighborhood is not so good but the metro is 2 minutes walk from the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We really couldn't find anything to complain about during our stay at Centrotel. Surely at first we were a bit intimidated by the surrounding area as it looked a bit dodgy, but by the second night we were not bothered anymore and felt quite safe. The hotel itself is magnificient and provides all sort of things that make you feel like you've been treated, […] it's very clean and spacious and staff were really kind and helpful. I have been to 4 star hotels which were far worse than this one. I would definitely return to Centrotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We couldnt believe what a fantastic hotel this was for the price and for us everything about this hotel worked. We had a great room, really clean and quiet.

We stayed at Centrotel on our way in and out of Athens , the hotel is excellent , do not be put of by it's location! Best value hotel we have stayed at and we have been traveling for 7 months . Staff deserve a pat on the back this should be a four star hotel ! Well done .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service , great value."
I had a really pleasant and comfortable stay at this hotel. It is maybe a 30 minute walk into central Athens which was fine for me. I quite happily walked all the way to the Acropolis, which was about 45 minutes, but in June the heat is tolarable enough to do that. I never ate at the hotel so cannot comment on that but everything you needed in a room […] was there, it was very clean and the staff were really helpful. In all it was great value. As a (barely) greek speaking guy by himself I felt fine and safe in the area, however one thing to note was that the immediate area around the hotel is slightly shabby-looking which could lead to the impression that the area is not safe - or at least thats the impression I was given from a woman staying in the room next door to me. Victoria Sq station which is the closest metro line is a four minute walk away and is very pleasant with places to sit outside have a drink and a bite to eat. At their prices I would quite happily repeat my stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
excellent hotel, very clean and everything still looked brand new and obviously very well looked after. the staff were very friendly and helpfull day and night and the location, only 5 minuwalk from the metro and a square with some cafes/restaurants was great. previous people have warned about the location but we did not feel uncomfortable at any stage. […] We will definitely stay here again if we return to Athens and have reommended it to our parents too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel not far from the sights"
The Centrotel is a fantastic, new and sparkling hotel located a couple of metro stops from the centre of town. The rooms are spacious and spotless with jacuzzi bathtubs! The staff are superbly friendly and always smiling and the rates are unbeatable for this kind of quality in central Athens. The only small downside is the slightly rough surrounding […] area, but keep alert and aware and it shouldn't be a problem. They also seem to like keen to give free upgrades when the hotel isn't very busy! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap, clean, great room, easy to get to centre."
Pretty much what my title says. Centrotel isn't right in the centre of Athens, but that's why it can maintain cheap rates. However, from the moment we stepped through the front door, we were astonished. It's a very well kept hotel, with a wide open and airy lobby for welcoming guests. We were upgraded to a bigger room as it was our first time there […] and they had the space. Each room has airconditioning (and the controls are convienently next to the bed!), a mini fridge, balcony, and jacuzzi bath! The room was spacious and clean and cleaned every day on our request. The room service was quick and good and not as costly as you'd except. The hotel is minutes walk from two metro (underground) stations - with one taking you straight to the main tourist spot of Athens - the Acropolis and surrounding areas! It's an easy hour trip from the airport. Highly recommended hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Highly recommended - great value, brilliant stay!"
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. When we were looking for the hotel on the first night, we may have had concerns about the area as there were many dishevelled looking buildings in the locality, however, the hotel itself was lovely. On arrival, we were upgraded from a small to a large double room. The staff could not have […] been nicer and gave us good restaurant recommendations. The hotel is very well-kept, extremely clean and pleasant. Over the bed, there are miniature spot lights, which imitate a night's sky - a cute feature. The Victoria Square area (beside the Victoria metro station) is lovely. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants with al fresco dining. There is a more industrial/commercial/run-down vibe towards Larrisa station. However, there is a large supermarket, which is convenient if you're looking to stock up on supplies. Breakfast was 7.50e at the hotel but it was large enough to share between both of us. We got two freshly squeezed orange juices, a boiled egg, a large yoghurt, 2 warm croissants , 4 thick slices of fresh loaf, ham, cheese, jam/chocolate spread etc, and two slices of cake. There was also tea, coffee and water too. It was a nice breakfast and represented good value. It was convenient on the first day as we had an early start but the other days we ate at different locations only for the sake of variety. On departure day, the staff were happy to mind our luggage until we left the city for the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic find this hotel."
Fantastic little hotel. Great service, wonderfully large and well equipped rooms inc a spa bath and free soft drinks in mini bar, fab prices. Not in a pretty area but it's real Athens and is safe, we walked about at night all the time. Great value and clean and comfortable. Highly recommended for business or pleasure.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Service - Lovely Staff - Smart Rooms"
I've stayed in Athens a lot and hotels are very variable in their quality. Even some of the 4/5 star hotels are sometimes bad. However, this is the first time I've stayed here and would thoroughly recommend it. It's 300 metres from Victoria Metro. The area is not very smart but some much higher status hotels are also in poor areas. The staff were exceptionally […] good and take security very seriously. Room was spotless and smart and free internet was a bonus. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect hotel- not a great location"
Service was excellent and the rooms were clean, large and much better than expected. However the area surrounding the hotel is not ideal...can get quite intimidating with the amount of dodgy looking men hanging around. However this is only a problem late at night and if you are carrying alot of luggage. Take a taxi (which is cheap) from whereever you […] are and it will drop you outside the door.

"Great affordable hotel"
This contemporary hotel is conveniently located a few minutes from Victoria metro station. It is clean, comfortable and the reception staff is more than helpful. The breakfast is more than adequate with hard-boiled eggs, toasts, orange juice and, of course, yoghurt. There are two computers and a printer for guest use, as well as complimentary WiFi. […] The surrounding neighbourhood is not the prettiest, but we did not have any problems, and if you do not mind seeing how regular Athenians live, then there are no worries. This hotel should not be overlooked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Hotel in a seemingly rough neighbourhood"
Made our way with some trepidation from the metro station to the hotel, after having a look around the neighbourhood. After walking around Athens a little more, we came to realize that this was generally the state of most of the residential areas here so our initial fears about the seemingly rough nature of the place was unfounded. Anyway, I didn't […] have much expectations and was very pleasantly surprised when I saw the "C hotel" sign. It is a very modern building compared to its surrounding neighbours and has an interior to match. The reception staff are very friendly and will entertain any questions you may have. They also give good recommendations on places to eat or how the transportation system works (or doesn't). Rooms are functional, clean and the balcony was a plus. Rates are very inexpensive and the location is within walking distance from the metro, which is perhaps 4 stops from the city center. So overall, a gem of a place to stay if what you are looking for is a 1) clean room with good bathroom, 2) inexpensive place to stay in Athens but near the city center 3) want to walk around a real Athenian neighbourhood.

"Stay @ Centrotel"
The neighborhood of the hotel is in a run-down state. There are limited eateries within walking distance, which includes a bakery just across the street and a Soulvaki (affordable and delicious pitas) on the left side of the hotel. The nearest metro station is Larissa (Victoria station is down) and it takes ~7 minutes to walk to there. The service is […] great and the rooms are equipped with Hydro massage baths (Fantastic and unexpected - comparing to the likes of Best Western Europa Olympia, Amalia Hotel Delphi).
