Evripides Hotel Athens Reviews
Very good and cheap hotel Apr 05, 2015
This hotel is close to the city centre and the major attractions such as Syntagma square, Evrou street, Monastiraki, the Acropolis, ancient Agora etc.
The room was quite spacy and the bed was comfortable and of good quality. Bathroom and amenities were OK and what one would expect to find in a budget hotel.
Staff were friendly and quite helpful. A good breakfast was available on the 7th floor of the hotel as well as a bar during the evenings. There is a great view of the Acropolis from there. The Wi-Fi signal was very good and I had no problem to access the internet.
The only downside to this hotel is that it's located in a shabby and dodgy street full of graffiti and immigrants. Even though I did not have any major concerns, it did not feel very comfortable to walk through this street especially during the night.

Excellent and cheap Sep 01, 2008
On the first day of arrival in Athens by airplane we had no idea where we had to stay. So with our Lonely Planet in the hand we started searching for a place. Because we arrived around 6 pm, it was getting dark already after a while. And still we didn't find a good place to sleep. In the end we were able to get a room in the Evripides Hotel.
The rooms were excellent, it was quite a big room. Enough space for all the stuff we had with us! If you entered the room from the corridor of the hotel, you came into a little corridor first which was part of the room. To the right was a door which was the bathroom and straight on was the bedroom of our room. The beds slept very well and were of good quality. The shower was exactly what we wanted to have, very big bathroom. And everything was kept clean, so another plus! And we even had a balcony, but that was very tight. And the view wasn't that great either.
The hotel didn't provide breakfast so we had to go out in the morning first. But not far from its location were plenty of nice restaurants and coffee shops for a good breakfast.
The area and especially the street where the hotel was in, was a little bit dodgy. Not the nicest place to hang around, especially not in the night or after sunset. All weird people hung around there. From the other hand it was very close to Monastiraki which is very touristic and with a lot of good restaurants. In the night you could have a great view on the Acropolis.
We didn't really need their service in the hotel. So I gave it an average star. They were friendly, but that was it. They didn't help us with anything more. And we also didn't need them to help us.
I can recommend people staying here, even though the dodgy location. I think it just looked worse than it in fact is. If that is something that really scares you, I won't choose this hotel.
