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
"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
"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
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
This place is super clean with really good bathroom and large size double room. the only thing slight negative is the surrounding. there isnt many lights at night and dark.Genuine Hotels.com 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
"Amazing hydro massage bath tubs"
Nice cosy and quiet. Extremely safe and professional staff who always helped, amazing hotel in this price, veryyyy cleanGenuine 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
"Strongly recommended to stay"
The hotel was overally perfect. The price is good, staff are very friendly, they devote time to introduce you the best ways to go to different parts of the city. Roomes were clean, daily cleaning service was done, hotel itself was beautiful, close to public transport,... However, the only negative point is the neighborhood of the hotel which seems to […] be a not-so-nice part of Athens. But it is absolutely nothing compared to all the benefits and positive points of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok hotel. reviews are misleading."
its a good basic hotel that is clean and efficient. but that is it. The reviews on most sites however showcase it as an excellent choice - which is not the case. cushions are bad. rooms have no view. area is bleak.Genuine Expedia guest review
Reserved based on reviews. Very glad we did. We stayed for six nights...Although the neighbourhood is a little run down, the hotel looked brand-sparkling new. The welcoming staff, always polite, always smiling. Room service was prompt. Room was very comfortable and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very good for price"
Great hotel, rooms are super clean, location is not ideal but there are 2 train stations close so that any place is within a couple stops. Great for value would stay again, neighbour hood a little run down.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value for money"
We were just staying in Athens for a couple of nights and this was a great value hotel within easy reach of a metro station giving us quick access to all the sights. A beautifully presented hotel and our room was spacious, clean and well furnished. Staff very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for our short trip to see the sights."
Arrived at the hotel after flight from England took a taxi as it was late at night. The hotel is situated between 2 metro stations one on the line for the Acropolis and the other for the port needed for our trip to Poros. Rooms clean and comfortable, great bathroom and fantastic water pressure for shower. Staff friendly and very helpful , breakfast […] good value. Free Wifi and access to computers and printer. OK so the area is a bit rundown but felt safe and once inside the hotel it was brilliant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cheery, helpful staff"
Nothing was a trouble for staff, and they went out of their way to be helpful. 5 kg laundry for €10 good value. Pillows like rocks, but staff did try to find softer pillows for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good clean hotel at reasonable price"
Stayed overnight en route from Crete to North America. Staff friendly, room clean, quiet street. Breakfast is average for Greece, and few others used it since it is not cheap. Easy to access using Metro to central Athens, then either short taxi ride or short trip on another metro line. Close to National Archeological Museum. Restaurants / cafes in square […] about 5 minutes walk away are reasonably priced, average food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central location good value for your money"
My clean comfortable double air-conditioned room on 4th floor, had poor insulation between bathroom & shower room next floor. Central to all must see amenities and the Metro station at the main train station in Athens.The surrounding neighbourhood is mostly populated by immigrants but overall, offers l good clean hotel accommodation and value..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great service and great room"
The lady on e desk at arrival was fantastic, helpful and friendly. The room was air conditioned and super comfortable, with curtains that blacked out the sun to ensue we had a great sleep. I would love to come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Friendly staff,great accommodation"
Booked a room with two single beds,got a double and a single bed,still with plenty of space to walk around so the rooms are spacious indeed with tons of wardrobe spaceVery clean. Great ceiling lighting too,tiny lights above the bed,perfect night-light. Bathroom was good too.We arrived early(07:30 am),had a previous email exchange with a lady called […] Evi,very kind,said that it might be too early to check in but we can store our luggage without a problem.However when we arrived,room was ready!All receptionists were very friendly,smiley and kind,knew our room number straight away.Also got 2bottles of complementary water.Had a small balcony,two chairs+table.Though we booked a room with a city view-i assumed that meant a view onto the street-,our room had a courtyard view.First i considered it a downside as city view was more expensive but it was a massive courtyard,had a rather good insight into the lives of the neighbouring buildings,rather than the noisy street as people stay out late at night so that was actually a plus!Also the fact that they accommodated our early check-in request at no extra cost made this tiny detail disappear. Free wifi in room and of course air con.Got a city map with the hotel marked so that was very handy. It is only a few metro stops from the city centre so nearby but far enough for it to be more of a local neighbourhood than a touristy spot with plenty restaurants to eat at nearby. I would highly recommend the hotel in every aspect. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

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

"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.

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.
