“Shabby but clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

We stayed here in Sept. 2011 for 1 week. As stated in the title the interior of the room ex. rugs very worn, paint worn, hotel not modernized for many years. BUT the workers were wonderful, breakfast was good, location was excellent and the place was very clean. During a transportation strike the girl at the desk helped us rearrange our day very easily and workers were able to help at all times. Most spoke english pretty well. As stated by someone elses review, the small elevator is quite an experience!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2011

We stayed at the Myrto Hotel in September 2011. Great location, walking distance to the Plaka and all major attractions. Very friendly staff. Good breakfast. We had an amazing view of the Acropolis, but not sure if all the rooms have the view. We asked for a room with a view when we booked. The rooms are OK, we would definitely stay here again, but it's not a 5-star hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Acropolis.

What this hotel has going for it is location very close to the Plaka and a congenial staff ... and that's about it. It's possible that we got the worst room in the hotel. I can certainly believe it. Both the door frame and the door were rotting and crooked so that anyone could have just leaned on the door and pushed through, thus making the lock pointless. The bathroom was hideous. It smelled badly of obvious mildew. The shower wall was peeling away in a dozen places and tiles were crumbling - not just cracking but crumbling - all over. After taking a shower, I felt like I needed another shower somewhere clean. You expect to make concessions at a budget hotel, but this was too much.

Loved the Myrto - doesn't claim to be 5 star, but clean, very comfortable, and quaint. Worth a visit to see the tiny but efficient lift! With a view of the Acropolis from one window, and St John's on Mt Lycabettus from the balcony on the other side, and Syntagma Square, Parliament House (and the Changing of the Guard) and the Metro just 5 minutes away, there's easy access to whatever you want to do. Breakfast is simple but adequate.
All at reception were friendly and helpful. Would definitely go back if I return to Athens.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Acropolis if you want one.

Room - very dated, not very clean (carpet was dirty, parts of the bathroom also dirty) bed linen was clean so adequate for a couple of days. Breakfast - adequate, although the fried aggs were cooked at 7am and left so if you went down at say, 8, they were cold.
Staff - very nice and friendly
Location - the best thing about the hotel - literally 2 minutes from Syntagma Square. To summarise - you get what you pay for, so for 69 euros for a double room in the centre of Athens I suppose you cant complain. Athens, by the way, is amazing!
