Reviewed 20 February 2012

Firstly the location cannot be bettered, within 1 minutes walk from the hotel is the most wonderful view of the Parthenon, access to the Plaka, Acropolis museum and 'Hop on -hop off' bus stop on your doorstep.
The staff try very hard and are extreamly friendly and helpful, but this lack lustre hotel makes it hard form them to shine. If you are happy with a no frills 3* hotel then the location is worth putting up with tired rooms that are 'adequate'.
The breakfast is very good, but no evening meals are available in the hotel. There are plenty of excellent restaurants all around - avoid the one at the top of the road on the same side as the hotel however.
Go to Lycabutter Hill, via funicular railway, the view from there is well worth the trip, there is a very nice restaurant at the top, although expensive.
There were demonstrations going on at the time we went ( 15 -19 Feb 2012), but these are very localised at the Parliament Building, and directed at the Police and Government not Tourists. Some roads were closed which delayed our return to the airport, but just leave earlier for the time being. It did not badly disrupt our trip, and we managed to see the changing of the Guard which is both traditional and hilarious!

Room Tip: room 601 is on the roof with a view of the Parthenon, but the bathroom is tiny and dated and room sm...

Staff was friendly and very knowledgeable about what to do in the area. The Airotel Parthenon is in a great location for visiting the main archaeological sites /attractions that Athens has to offer: the Parthenon, the Plaka, the new museum. Very clean, rooms are big and confortable. Choice of food at breakfast buffet.

we booked this hotel cuz it was close to the acropolis, but the rooms r terrible. the bathroom gave a huge noise when the lights were turned on cuz the fan has to be turned on at the same time. the blankets were s dirty they gave everyone a terrible rash. we booked a non-smoking room but there was smoke coming out of the air conditioners.

The hotel is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood which gave me very good quality sleep due to the calm surroundings; a good breakfast buffet that was included in the price; within 2 minutes of the Akropoli metro stop, which was convenient to get around using my 7-day unlimited metro ticket; and there is actually quite a bit to eat and drink, both away from the Acropolis, but also toward it, i.e. the Plaka, on whose southern edge the Parthenon is.

The service staff was friendly, English-competent and helped with my requests such as reservations at a nearby restaurant and other things.

The room was clean, functional and even had a bathtub and a balcony. The first room given me had a problem when the water overflowed in the bathroom after i pulled the plug on the bath after getting done - they immediately changed me to another and even left a fruit platter and a bottle of wine for me, presumably for the inconvenience.

Free wi-fi was good too, but in the room I had - 407 - the signal was very weak.

The other cons include that this IS far from the touristy parts of Syntagma and Monastiraki where all the historical bits are too. And no matter what they say, this is in my opinion a very good, value-for-money 3-star hotel rather than 4 and definitely not 5.

Clean hotel with an exelent buffet breakfast, ranging from English to Contiental breakfast. Very friendly stuff. And and very well located, just a few feet from the Acroplis, Plaka (some exelent restaurants) and a walking distance to Athens city center.

Room Tip: We had a doubel room. Actually they were 2 singel beds placed together. But who cares !!!After a day...
