We went back to the Oscar Hotel. It is a perfect location as it is next to the railway station as well as the metro lines. We just love how it's so easy to get to. Always before we had been very happy with our room. This time we were surprized to find the room was not a nice one. It was a dated room that really needed spiffing up. There was no balcony and it was a very, very small room. It was totally different than any other time we had been there and paid the same price.

We went downstairs and spoke to the desk person. (He may have been one of the managers.) He was quite angry and told us the room was the same type we had had before. He then told us we can look at another room. He gave us a key to one that was directly above the first one so it was a complete duplicate room. It was the first time we had had any questions or problems that were not addressed.

The manager said if we wanted a room like we had every other time we would have to pay 20 Euro for an upgrade. We decided to take the second room but resolved we would never return to the Oscar Hotel despite it's perfect location. (Luckily we found the Peri Hotel near the airport in 2011). We went up to the room then remembered we needed to get our extra suitcase from their storage area. We asked the staff to open the luggage storage area as we had left a single suitcase there before we went to Crete. The manager blew a gasket. He was beside himself furious that we had stored luggage for a week (Yet we have done this on two other occasions) He told us off and then yelled at his staff in Greek. Yikes .... calm down, bozo. Yep, We won't be back to the Oscar Hotel in Athens. It's really as shame as we had developed relationships with some of the day staff.. But personnel make or break a visit...

Andrea, We actually think it was just this tightly wound guy... the other employees were quite nice in former visits. But... we are glad we found an alternative too. We aren't going to go where the personnell are jerks...why? when so many other people are nice?

Wow... I guess everything changes. Yelling at guests, never a good thing. I'm glad you found an alternative.

The Oscar Hotel is in a superb location for transit access. Being one block from the train station allows for transport to/from the airport and to regional/other European connections. An Athens Metro station is 1/2 block for in-city movement. This is a nice hotel with excellent amenities and a very helpful staff. Rooms are well equipped and beds are excellent. Upper floor balconies are large, with tables. Paid parking is available. This is the hotel we have used as a start/end point, allowing us to store some items while we travel elsewhere. We return to regroup for the flight home. We have enjoyed several meals in several nearby restaurants whose clientele is primarily neighborhood residents.
