Perfect Stay!
Perfect location for the Acropolis and Plaka! The staff was always helpful. Our room was smallish, but comfortable, with everything we needed. Breakfast was wonderful too! Couldn’t have been better, loved it!
Clara, us3 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
The property had an amazing central location just a few steps from the Acropolis and its museum, Hadrian's arch, the Temple of Zeus, food, shops, and the train station. The customer service was absolutely phenomenal. The restaurant on top was great with stunning views of the Acropolis. The rooms were nice, clean, and modern. I will stay here every time I come back to Athens.

The AthensWas is modern, beautiful, and literally down the street (and within walking distance) of the Acropolis. The rooftop restaurant looked out at the ancient site, and the food was excellent but priced quite high - which I guess was understandable given the location. Street seating at Nextdoor restaurants was also fun and the food was generally good at every place we visited nearby. We highly recommend the AthensWas for travelers looking for a lovely hotel in a great location in the crazy city of Athens.
