Good location in the heart of Plaka area, within short walking distances to the metro (Syntagma) and the Acropolis. Plus lots of great cafes nearby. Rooms are small, but clean and there is a nice rooftop terrace with a great view of the Acropolis and a Jacuzzi. The staff is very friendly and helpful as well.

great and safe location May 16, 2009
This hotel is in a great and safe location --accessible to shops, restaurants, metro station, tourist’s attractions, and so on. We didn’t have any problem walking at night.

Our room is tiny but we didn’t mind. We only need for an overnight stay. This was our last hotel stay before we flew back to the U.S.

The bathroom is clean but has a weird layout

Staffs are cordial but not the friendliest. We asked them to wake us up at 4 am and they did!

Breakfast is included but we did not have it since we needed to be at the airport early in the morning. It could have been nice to eat breakfast at the hotel rooftop overlooking the Parthenon!

I will recommend this hotel for its location.

Our stay in this hotel was booked for us by an agent so check their website for current rates.

I stayed at this hotel several times in 2003 and 2004. The rooms are very beautifully appointed. The beds are very comfortable (however, be sure to ask for a matrimonial bed rather than a double if you are a couple, because the doubles are two twin beds), there is in-room ADSL access which I found to be very fast when I hooked my laptop up to it (I do not think there is wireless access, so you'll need a cable). There were no balconies to speak of, although the windows do open. I have stayed on both sides of the hotel; some rooms have a view of the Acropolis, so if this is important to you, be sure to ask.

The breakfast is good -- I don't know how much extra it costs now, but when I stayed there it was included, and quite good. The reception staff were helpful and there is a secure luggage storage facility if you are leaving the city for a few days.

The bathrooms are beautifully done with really soft towels, comfortable shower stall with a nice modern shower, attractive, etc. However, you might want to know in advance that part of the bathroom wall is clear glass (not smoked glass, as the bathroom door is). This is the wall between the bathroom and your hotel room, not with the exterior corridor. However, there is a significant loss of privacy in the bathroom due to this clear glass. (The shower stall also has a clear glass wall and no curtain, so this will not protect you!)

Central Athens Hotel Overview

Enjoy a brief business trip or discover the Ancient Greek civilization in the area around the hotel and relax in our completely renovated rooms with the stunning views of the Acropolis. All rooms are designed to meet the highest standards of accommodation and feature upscale furnishing and decoration. Visit our elegant rooms facing the area of Plaka and enjoy their beautiful balconies where you will get the feeling of living the traditional Greek way. If this proposal does not appeal to your senses, then the direct view of the Acropolis offered by the rooms on the other side, will certainly do. Visit our charming restaurant and enjoy daily buffet breakfast serving fresh juices and delicacies. Famous Italian designers have created the furniture of the restaurant in a comfortable and modern style. The place's main attraction is the innovative atrium which you will find in the restaurant's entrance. Its wooden deck, the traditional olive trees and its upscale decoration, are the result of the designing philosophy of Stelios Demos, the architect whose professional experience always documents the combination of state of the art technology, functionality, and modern art design. Take your time to enjoy the romantic scenery from our unique terrace. Be it during sunrise or during sunset, we invite you to admire the magnificent views of the Acropolis, only a breath away. Indulge in this unforgettable experience and travel through time by combining the traditional with the holy, history with evolution, and trust the distinct service of our experienced personnel. Or simply relax in the revitalizing waters of the Jacuzzi we have created for you on our impressive terrace. The Central Hotel is centrally located in the heart of the Old City of Plaka and the Acropolis, only 200 m. away from Constitution square (Syntagma), the city's business district.
