"Great Hotel, safe but scruffy neighborhood"
I selected this hotel based on the Trip Advisor reviews, and found them to be quite accurate. The price was excellent, the room was large and very clean, the service was friendly and responsive. I stayed 4 nights, then left Greece for a few days and came back... I booked two more nights at Centrotel. I tended to either take the metro to Victoria station […] and walk (about 4 blocks), or have cabs drop me at Victoria. Though the area is not scenic, I felt perfectly safe. The hotel staff was great! Enjoy. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A few days in Athens"
This hotel was excellent. The place was so clean and the hotel was in excellent condition. The service was absolutely 5 star. They arranged delivery of our bags (they missed the connection and came on a later flight), gave us directions everywhere we wanted to go, arranged our taxi at departure, and did it all with a great big smile. We will definitely […] return. The breakfast in the morning was excellent as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Athens. Oh and Victoria square transit station is just about 250 meters down the street! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel is very nice. neighborhood is so-so, which is why the hotel is inexpensive. (It's cost 2X that in a touristy neighborhood) but the neighborhood is safe, just not attractive. hotel was a tad difficult to find as the street name changes.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel, great people, let down by the area"
The hotel is fine, the people super - extremely helpful and pleasant. It is just in a very sleazy district. Full of recent immigrants of all nationalities. They say it is safe but it did not seem so. There is a square about a third of a mile directly up the street with some decent small cafes but the busy main street nearby is somewhat threatening with […] many people sitting on doorsteps and entrances. The bed was extraordinarily hard and low. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Little gem in the centre of Athens."
At first I had doubts due to the location but luckily I booked my weekend stay here! While the surrounding is a bit questionable (a majority immigrant area) but it wasn't a slum. In fact, I felt safe walking the street to the metro at night. Metro Victoria on the blue line is just 200 metres away which you could connect to the airport and Syntagma stations. As […] you enter the hotel you will be surprised by the beautiful lobby contrasting the less kept street. Check in was a breeze and the staff were friendly and informative. Rooms are huge and clean with a comfy bed, dimmable lights, large cupboard and a small TV. Some rooms have balconies. Bathrooms are big, clean with good water pressure. Free Wifi through out the hotel with two computers and a printer at the cafe free of charge. Frre parking too. Truly a gem in the middle of Athens. Taxi was 6€ from the center past midnight.

"Very nice hotel with extremely helpful staff"
We stayed in this hotel for a short trip to Athens. The hotel is 4 blocks away from 2 main metro stations, (in a not so nice neighborhood though), but it's secure, clean and good value for money. It's not in the city center, but being close to the metro stations makes it easy to move around. The best thing about this hotel is the friendly staff. Everyone […] at the front-desk was really helpful and they can give you a lot of good tips for your trip in Athens/Greece. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This place was awesome!!!! From the staff to the room to the food and everything in between!!!! If I ever come back to Athens this place for sure has my business and will reccomend to friends!Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was not at all helpful to a foreign traveler. Male did not help me get my bag up the stairs to my room and there was not an elevator. No one spoke English at the reception desk. A bit noisy because right on the main road.Genuine Expedia guest review
Centrotel was great. Most of the staff was incredibly helpful, spoke English very well, and were all very nice. The rooms were clean. Room service was sweet (expensive, but not outrageous). My only complaint is that breakfast costs an extra 10 euros per person. For the price of the room, I think that's a little unnecessary. Overall, though, I had a […] great experience.

Hotel was very comfortable, spacious, modern and great value for money. We used jacuzzi every day to help ease the pains from walking all day. Would definitely come backGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"weekend break at Centrotel"
Previous reviews are not exaggerating, i can not fault this hotel, the family room was large, with spa bath, more than comfortable, tasteful hotel decor, staff went above and beyond, nothing too much trouble, good location for travel links, breakfast was simple but adequate and the room service was fast and snacks good quality, only one downside no […] kettle in the room, rest more than made up for this.

"Night in Athens"
Nice hotel, the staff was friendly n helpful and the room was nice n clean. The area felt a bit shady so we decided to stay in after it got dark.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great cheap hotel"
Best summed up by the taxi driver who dropped me of "the hotel is a really nice hotel but the location isn't a nice part of town."Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"fantastic hotel for the price"
We stayed here for 3 days and had a 7 floor room with a balcony. The room was a nice size with a beautiful balcony with 2 chairs and a table and a nice view. The place was very clean with a nice bathroom featuring a jacuzzi. Staff were very helpful and the hotel is located 4 blocks from the subway.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely hotel close to transport"
Great stay, central and close to two underground train lines.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice friendly hotel"
Hotel staff very pleasant, good breakfast and spotless rooms. A real gem.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful and Romantic!"
Lovely room, free upgrade, friendly staff! Room was very clean, well presented, the balcony was a lovely touch!Genuine Expedia guest review
Arriving late at night after a long journey, being given an upgrade to a suite was a real bonus! The man on reception was absolutely brilliant and our whole (unfortunately short) stay continued in the same vein. Lovely breakfast - staff very helpful and pleasant. It is an easy walk to the metro station and advice about finding our way round was invaluable. […] An ideal hotel for a visit to Athens and interesting to be in a residential area with local shops, street markets and restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, but in not so good area."
This hotel is everything you could ask for, but it is not in a great area of Athens. We arrived at about 3.30pm and decided to walk into the centre of Athens. We didn't feel safe at all and took a taxi back later in the evening. The following day we took the metro into the centre and it was a much better experience. The nearest metro is approx 300m […] away from the hotel. So overall, a fantastic hotel, but in a dodgy area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Friendly, helpful staff and well located close to the metro so it's easy to get to Monastaraki to go out for dinner & drinks, and to the acropolis... Would definitely stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"value and comfort"
Very comfortable hotel, close to local bars, restaurants, small shops and metro station. To be honest, not the most attractive part of Athens but the hotel more than compensated for that. Excellent standard of decor, cleanliness, comfort and staff were friendly and helpful. Full marks for value for money - have spent more than double for similar facilities […] elsewhere.

"Loved this place"
This hotel was easily accessible from the airport. It was 2 short blocks from a park area with restaurants and stores all near by. It was three blocks from the metro system which made it easy to get to all of Athen's fabulous sites. The staff was wonderful even finding us a bottle opener and some wine glasses so we could enjoy a drink on our balcon […] y. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent rooms, a little out if the way"
The hotel was in an area that was a little out of the way and bit run down, so the hotel was a pleasant surprise. It was modern, with well furnished large rooms and a fabulous bathroom! Breakfast, which cost extra, was great. Our only complaint was the really slow wifi and the grumpy hotel manager (the rest of the staff were lovely!). In fact, if we […] could have avoided him our experience would have been perfect. One other note is an almost complete lack of tourist information in the hotel - no maps or guides. If we hadn't been to Athens before this could have been quite difficult. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Centrotel was a great place to stay! It was especially nice after an 8 hour ferry trip from Santorini! Our room was clean and comfortable with a big bathroom. While we didn't have breakfast included for 7 euros we had the full buffet breakfast. The staff were also friendly and helpful. The nearest Metro station was a 5 min walk and a short ride to the […] centre of Athens. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location, close to transport"
Very basic but great if you don't plan on spending much time in the room. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Location was a bit shady, watch your pockets.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great room in an excellent location."
My girlfriend and I stayed here on the 8th and 9th of of July 2014. I chose the hotel as it was close to Larissa Station and we were arriving there from Thessaloniki. The hotel was more difficult to find than I had expected and is actually closer to the Victoria metro station than the stop at Larissa if you intend to use the metro system. The room was […] very comfortable with very efficient air conditioning and the best bathroom we used in Greece. There were also little coloured lights in the ceiling above the bed which were a nice touch. The staff were helpful when we requested advice on using the Ktel service to Delphi.

"Incredibly good service"
Staff could not have been more helpful and willing to go the extra mile. The room was large, with a seating area and lovely bathroom, all spotlessly clean. Fluffy white bathrobes supplied, but in July it's far too hot to wear them! The hotel is a bit inconveniently placed for public transport, as although it's only about a 10 minute stroll, it is slightly […] uphill and could be difficult for some, especially in 43 degrees, which it was on our last day! The area is a bit rundown but felt perfectly safe. The balconies have a view of apartments and other balconies, which I can see might be off-putting as it wasn't very pretty, but for us it added to the character and we enjoyed being part of Athens neighbourhood life. The only negative comments I could make are that hotter coffee and riper fruit would be nice at breakfast, and sadly we didn't sleep well as we found the bed harder than others we'd slept on in Greece this trip. It probably wouldn't bother those with younger bones than ours, however. Good value overall; we'd probably use this hotel again - though a mattress topper would swing it!

"Great place to stay"
Very modern hotel. Quite a ways a way from the airport. Staff were helpful and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
-- pros ---: everything was brand new! several huge mirrors (one big in bathroom). large room. large glass door towards the street. glass door is double glazed, so I would not hear the street noises. nice balcony. bath robes provided. A/C worked very well. safe was large enough for any laptop ---- cons ----: internet often did not work (that sounded […] typical) could hear sounds from other rooms & neighbours using water -- notes ---: neighbourgood was perfectly fine. bed is indeed hard, as everybody says. I guess I was given a smoking room (there were two ashtrays in the room), but I did not feel the smell. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The place was very nice"
The place was very nice but inconvenience for us who only stay for two days. We can walk from the hotel to the Acroplis and the Praka Place. But because of the distance of the hotel from the Praka place, we have made our strolling at the Praka place short and also because it is not too safe to go back the hotel too late.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was my 4 visit to this hotel, over the past 2 years. It is a beautiful, modern, very well designed hotel. Very friendly hotel.. When I stayed there in the past, the breakfast was a very nice but limited, costing €5.00, which was very good value. The breakfast now costs €7.00, but is much more extensive and still very good value. The hotr is very […] convenient to both Victoria and larissa metro stations. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
You cant get the wifi in the room. You have to stand in the hall or bring your own wire to plug. The room Is nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Amazed by the size of our room, the cleanliness and most of all the Service. My wife and 15month old baby arrived with a ton of luggage at a very late hour.....reception even helped clear a dispute with a nasty taxi driver demanding more than usual. Our room was extremely spacious and welcoming after staying in much smaller accommodation on the islands […] for the 2 weeks prior. The only negative was that I had to go out at midnite to get some dinner. This was no problem to find as the hotel is extremely well situated. I was weary of the area after reading the reviews.....but in the end felt safe as the area is well lit. The service the next morning was extra ordinary as reception helped us get a friendly cab driver with aircon to take us to the airport. This hotel is just brilliant and after staying in many business hotels for my occupation, it rates right up there with the best of them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is close to metro station"
The proximity of the hotel to Victoria station is good. There are two supermarkets minutes away from the hotel. The interior and rooms are amazing!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel in the wrong place"
No complaint about the hotel itself, it is just in the wrong place for sightseeing - taxi or metro required to get into the City.Genuine Expedia guest review
"With a few additional refinements could become 4*"
The location is excellent and the hotel is immaculate and very comfortable. Around one hour transit from Athens airport by Metro brings you to the Victoria Metro station and bout 10 minutes walk from the Victoria Metro station brings you to the Centrotel's pleasant foyer and reception. The Hotel is modern, exceptionally well maintained and scrupulously […] clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Better than we expected."
We had read the reviews on here before going, so didn't expect the best hotel in the world, but it was actually a very pleasant, clean and friendly hotel. As others have said, it's location is not the best. You find yourself in a bit of a dirty corner of Athens, but once you walk into the cool, clean, modern lobby...you're in another world. The staff […] were friendly, helpful, English speaking, etc. The whole hotel was very clean and modern. The breakfast buffet was pretty decent. And our family room had one of the cool 'massage' baths, with lights and jets and stuff! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Central to everything"
We stayed here for 5 nights prior to going to some islands. Great central hotel, close to public transport from Victoria Square. The general area lets it down, as it is a run down part of Athens. We did not experience any problems, but were warned not to walk around the area at night. Staff were excellent and attentive. We asked for a number of things […] and they were sent to our room immediately. We were very happy with the service we received. Thank you to the staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"3 days in Athens before travelling around Greece."
Despite being located outside the very centre of Athens, the hotel was very convenient because of the nearby undeground stations. This of course is why the price is much less than a similar quality hotel closer to the Acropolis but for us it was well worth it. The area is not as pristine as the tourist areas but hey, this is where the real Athenians […] live and work and we, a mature couple, felt safe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall the hotel was clean and tidy. The down side there was no tea making available. Good breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hôtel nearby métro"
Be carefull the area is not as safe as before the economic crisisGenuine Expedia guest review
I have no idea why this is a 2 star hotel. It's better than most 3 star hotels I've stayed in. I guess the neighbourhood lets it down. Saying that it wasn't really bad. We never felt scared or threatened, there was the odd drunk and a few dissused buildings but no gangs or scary hoodys and most of Athens is covered in graffiti and empty buildings. The […] metro is 5 mins away. Theres a supermarket and bakery 30 secs away and everything you need nearby. One or two stops and you are in the city centre. The hotel is great, we had a big clean room and balcony, staff are nice, no complaints at all. I highly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great clean hotel with friendly staff"
As single traveler, I had a great 6-day stay. this hotel is situated in a somewhat dilapidated neighbourhood. However, the hotel is close to many cafes/restaurants, within a 10 min. walk, you are in central Athens, and it only takes a 30 min. walk to the Akropolis. 2 supermarkets are around the corner. The only thing I would have liked is having a water […] cooker, mug and some tea/coffee bags available in the room. Staff is really friendly. I would surely book a room here again!

"Location, location, location"
Modern, clean, large rooms, helpful station, good metro link - shame about the location. The street is very run down and pretty scarey at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very good hotel, nice stuff, clean room but very poor neighbourhood...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only problem was the it was not centrally located and you had to catch the metro (3 stops to the centre) or walk extensively. Otherwise it was a great place to stay at a good price. On my first evening, I thought nice hotel, but the area was rundown. After my first a few days of walking around, I realised that much of Athens was rundown.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family Visit to Athens"
We did not want to spend a huge amount for our hotel since we know we would be enjoying Athens. We found a perfect hotel - close to Victoria Station (and even some nice coffee shops on the square). The hotel was very comfortable and easy to get to and from the center of Athens. The staff was on duty 24 hours a day which made asking questions very easy. […] We did not have breakfast but that worked better as there is a supermarket right down the road and many bakeries/coffee shops. The room was comfortable with a nice porch. Beds and pillows were hard --- but for the price -- we can't complain. We would certainly stay at the Centrotel again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
