Stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. The rooms are spacious and breakfast is AMAZING! Bathroom is a decent size and was clean.The rooftop restaurant and bar is breathtaking at night and has a view of the Acropolis.

New rooms and very clean. Report quality-price very good. We were at 5th floor and we had a view to Acropolis :). The best thing about the hotel is its location. Just outside the hotel is the metro station, taxi station and city bus station/

The best thing about the hotel is its location. Just outside the hotel is the metro station & hop on-hop off bus pick up point. Also walking distance from ommonia square.

The location was fine, did not taste the food as we had onward travel plans, but found the staff exceptionally helpful and polite. I left something behind and they kindly arranged for it to be safely stored and collected a few weeks later by a friend.

The rooms need a revamp. Apparently it is in progress. There's not really anything wrong with the older rooms, but they could do with being updated. There are many other hotels in the vicinity, all with good restaurant options, but The Stanley has the best roof terrace, overlooking the city of Athens in its entirity, including an vista directly to...

This hotel is soooo old. It reminds me of a bad cruise cabin. It's clear they make their money off of large tour groups, because there were masses of people that would come and go at the same time.
