Central at an affordable price May 11, 2017
I booked the Hotel Cecil through Expedia. I chose it because it was central to the main sites of Athens and I walked easily from there to everything I wanted to visit. Train and bus services are close by, as are plenty of eateries and shopping places.

The hotel is reasonable clean with the rooms being serviced daily. I'm picky with bathrooms, not liking handheld shower heads, so after such a bathroom I moved to another room after the first night. The bed was comfortable. The room big enough for me with a balcony and air-conditioning. I found the walls to be pretty thin, allowing for noise from neighboring toilets and the dining room next door to be easily heard.

There is 24hr reception and they are always helpful with arranging taxis or tours or wake up calls. The laundry service is 10 Euros for a load, which is a bit rich, but comparing the cost to the few laundrettes in the area and the convenience of not having to wait at one, I was happy to pay the price. My clothes smelled lovely.

Breakfast is included and a simple buffet style; juice, tea, coffee, bread, eggs, apples, yogurt, ham, cheese and only one type of cereal being a cornflake style with choc balls in it. There are plenty of places nearby if you want something different. The dining room opens at 7am, but if you need an earlier start because of a tour they will open it for you. At 7am it's quiet, but get there at 9am and you'll be struggling to find a seat at one of the 7 or 8 tables.

Free wi-fi and computer is available to access internet. I only accessed the first floor, but apparently there's a garden on the top floor.

The hotel was very popular and the staff are excellent. I would recommend this hotel.

Fabulous review with brilliant photos of your room. This seems to be a decent enough place to stay. I don't even mind having a handheld shower.
