Achilleas Hotel
Ranked #94 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed 18 July 2017

The hotel is conveniently located near Syntagma, and very near to the streets where university students and young people gather for pubs, live music and easy going movida greek style.. the Hotel is part of an existing building, the rooms are small but comfortables and they also have small balconies. staff is helpful and prices are convenient. the main advantage it offers is the location and easy fo access to all public transport to and from the airport at any time of the day and or night in syntagma square.

Stayed: November 2016

I booked this hotel at 11pm at night and checked in 30 minutes later due to my other hotel being really average.
I chose this hotel because of the location.
It is a few minutes walk from the main shopping street, buses, train etc.
As a girl travelling on her own, it is a great hotel because of it's location.
I would stay here again.
The staff and cleaning staff are really friendly and very helpful.
Breakfast is included which is good. It's nothing special but it's fine! I have been having fruit and yogurt (because it's gluten free) but there's a lot of other options.
There is an amazing Absinthe bar across the road down a lane way. Full of locals which is great.
The bed in the hotel was not good at all. I could feel every spring. Having a terrible bed in a hotel is the worst because after a long day of walking and sightseeing, you want to have a good sleep. These beds don't allow that.
The pillow was fine.
Very spacious room with a large window.
Bathroom is fine. Everything works.
They give you fresh sheets every day and mop the floor so it is very clean.
No kettle! I thought that was unusual. I like to make tea in my room.
No iron.
No full length mirror.
Aircon was great.
Wifi works best at the door and the window.
I'd stay here again but the beds really let this place down. If you love a comfortable bed then you might want to look for another hotel.

Dear Stephi,

Thank you for pointing out the central location of the Achilleas Hotel that as you have noted is a few minutes’ walk from everything our guests are looking for. We are glad to read that you liked the variety at the breakfast buffet, the service, and the cleanliness in our hotel. We also thank you for your suggestions for improvement which we are in the process of correcting by replacing the defective mattress in your room.

We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back for a return stay.
Thank you again for recommending us to future travelers!


Kind Regards,
Sofia K

The Achilleas is a really good choice if you want a no frills hotel close to all the tourist sites and the Plaka, and within easy 5 minutes walk from the Sygmata train and bus stations. Very comfortable vibe.
A good basic breakfast is included.
There is an elevator.
Air con works well.
Large room with safe.
Access to room and safe by electronic card
Plenty of cafes and bars nearby.
Bathroom excellent, but shower very small.
Street noise could be a problem for light sleepers.
Staff very helpful.

This hotel is what one should expect from a 3 star hotel. Nothing about it was luxurious (mattress, bedding, towels, view, complimentary breakfast), but we had everything we needed. The desk staff was helpful, and the affiliated parking garage (extra cost) was convenient and reasonable.
Our room and bathroom were quite small. The bathroom was especially small because it gave space for the elevator shaft, but we were not disturbed by the elevator. The only way that 2 people could be in the bathroom was if one was in the shower. But everything worked.
We had no scenic view, but the neighborhood was calm and quiet.
The booking was last minute, and we received a nice discount.

Room Tip: We had dined on a rooftop overlooking the Acropolis, so all we needed from the hotel was a good show...
