Arethusa Hotel Athens Reviews
tidy little rooms for a good price. Jun 01, 2008
I stayed in Athens for 5 days, and wanted some budget accommodation...this hotel did the job.
It was smack bang in the middle of town, and walking distance to the Acropolis.
It was nice and cheap, and as far as i could see was slowly being renovated...luckily my room was one of the renovated one, new floor boards and nicely painted walls, new bed and new small television. i was high enough to not hear any noise so i slept well.
The bathroom was really small and being a taller guy, i practically had to run around on my knees to get wet!
Service was average as hardly any English was spoken however i tried my best to bridge the gap by trying my hand at Greek...(which i suck at !!)
No breakfast included, but an amazing bakery just around the corner or many cafe's nearby.
there was a great view of the Acropolis from the "Rooftop Restaurant" but it was really just some trestle tables and chairs....but a nice quiet place to enjoy a beer or two with some locals or fellow travelers.
The Elevator was TINY so really one person with a suitcase could fit but was reliable and smooth.
Downstairs had wireless internet, so that was handy also.
The train was a 5 minute walk and the markets were the same distance and truly a spectacle to walk through.
This hotel was cheap and the room was ok for the price, dont think i would have liked an older room though !
Sorry i dont have many photos as while i was in Athens my Camera ended up taking a swim and i lost everything for the first 3 days :(
