Attalos Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 October 2017

The balcony of our 6th floor room had a clear view of the Acropolis, which added a wonderful dimension to our last 2 nights in Greece. Unlike some of the other reviewers, our room was renovated--immaculately clean & exceedingly comfortable with a renovated bathroom. The bathroom was on the smallish side, but possessing good pressure in the shower and a way to use it so water didn't flood the room. Towels were fluffy and heavy. The location of the hotel was perfect--not in a very touristy area but with all a tourist wants to see in a quick walk. (or not so quick if you took a wrong curve on the winding streets.) We walked everywhere. We took the train from the airport, ascended to street level, turned left and walked about 1 1/2 blocks to the hotel, which is in a narrow building sandwiched in between retail businesses, which abound in this neighborhood. We loved the liveliness of it. The highest marks to the personnel at this hotel--everyone from reception, the bartendress on the roof top (spectacular), to the gentleman who checked our bags and held them while we toured a little more of Athens on our last day. Every request was answered with a smile and helpful advice--friendly but professional. This trip, my husband's 79th birthday gift, ended with 2 days that became our favorite--even over the much regaled Santorini. Thank you to all who so graciously demonstrated that Greek warmth we so enjoyed. the value of Attalos is in service as well as dollars.

Dear singinintherain,

Thank you for choosing Attalos Hotel and for your positive remarks !! Your review made us very happy and is a great motivation for us to keep impoving . We are glad that you liked our hotel so much and that we managed to offer you a memorable experience in Athens and in this special occasion for you (your husbands birthday). As you said our location is very central but not touristy , the street does not look fancy but gives you an idea of the original Athenian city style. We are delighted to hear that you were satisfied with your room with the Acropolis view , the bathroom and our services. Last but not least, thank you for all those lovely words about our staff.
We do hope to welcome you again in the future !!

Kind regards,
Kostas Zisis /Attalos Hotel Manager

We wanted to be near the Acropolis as we were in town for the Spartathlon race which begins there early in the morning. It was fun and easy to get out and about to the sites from here. We did not arrive until after midnight and the staff were very helpful and supportive of us in a tired from traveling state. The hardest part is parking if you have a rental car. This was quite challenging and the staff directed us to a parking area nearby where we knew the car would be safe. There were some great food choices right by the hotel and we did not do the breakfast but it looked fabulous. This was our first "Greek" hotel and we were surprised at the small shower space and bathroom but soon realized after other hotel stays that this set up is the norm and the one at this hotel was actually pretty nice, comparatively.

Dear fancolorado,

Thank you for choosing Attalos Hotel and for your review !! Our hotel has the ideal location to get to know the city as it is just minutes away from the metro , the markets and of course the Acropolis and all major sights. We are delighted to hear that you liked our hotel, were pleased by our staff and our services and that our bathroom was good after all haha. We are not sure of you stayed in a room with a renovated bathroom as they are bigger but 1 month we will be done with all renovations.
We are hope to have the chance to welcome you again !!

Kind regards,
Kostas Zisis /Attalos Hotel Manager

The hotel is in a good location to tour Athens and the staff was very helpful. Our room was nothing special, the breakfast was very good to start off the day. Overall a great value. This place is old but functional.

If you can't stay in Plaka itself then this hotel is in a good location close to Plaka, various restaurants and Athens sights. It is however a little dated. The price we paid was extremely affordable and certainly was good value, the staff were great and I wish I could give it more stars considering but for anymore than a couple of nights, I personally would struggle to stay here. The bathroom was dated, the beds not great and the pillows just awful. My parents had a room on level 5 and that had an updated bathroom with amazing views. So may be request an upper floor.

Dear Cathj5 ,

Thank you for choosing Attalos Hotel and for the nice words about our staff!! You are right , our central location is ideal for sightseeing and moving around the city. You must have been unlucky and got one of the unrenovated rooms but in a month we will renovate the last remaining rooms as well , which will help us offer the same higher quality in all rooms and floors. We are glad you found the hotel value for money and we will have the chance to host you again some other time and show you our improvements !!

Kind regards,
Kostas Zisis /Attalos Hotel Manager

My experience at this hotel was good. The location is unbeatable, within walking distance to Monastiraki and the metro, it was very convenient and an excellent base for exploring Athens. At check in, staff were very friendly and welcoming. My room itself was quite spacious and comfortable. I don't know whether I just had bad luck and it was a one-off issue with housekeeping, but upon entering my bathroom, I discovered that it had not been cleaned properly. This was very disappointing but the staff at reception took my comments on board straight away, they offered to have it re-cleaned and I noticed that the room was spotless on the remaining days on my stay. Amenities were quite good, everything that was needed for a comfortable stay. Light sleepers be aware that the walls are quite thin and I was kept awake for most of the nights but loud door banging and noise from other guests. Overall I'd rate my stay as good, it's excellent value for money and a fantastic location.
