The week previous, we had paid more to stay at the awful Athens Cypria hotel a few streets away- please read my review.
We then went off to the islands and came back to Athens Central for one night and we were very happy with this hotel. They kindly minded our luggage while we were gone for free. (We just took little backpacks to the islands).
Central was clean and although our room was small, it was very adequate for our needs. We were on the 1st floor so could walk up the stairs (elevator very, very slow). Our room had a balcony, which was its saving grace as it made the small room seem a bit more spacious when the doors were open. It was nice to sit on the balcony and watch Athens wake up in the morning. Internet in room was slow.
Rooftop bar had a lovely view of the Pantheon. There is also an unheated jacuzzi which I imagine would be nice to come back to in the hot summer months.
Breakfast was plentiful and suited us fine.
The location is fabulous. We walked from the train station easily. Close by for shopping, eating and drinking. We happened upon some very cool bars in courtyards close to the hotel.
Staff were welcoming and efficient. All in all a most positive experience.More
