Touring Athens, Greece for one day

I hopped a flight to Athens from Heraklion because I wanted to spend more time on touring around Athens than a ship trip.As soon as I arrived at the international airport of Athens, I went to an internet cafe to search for a low cost flight from any airport in Romania to Spain, since I had had a ticket from Athens to Budapest, Hungary and planned …

My Big Fat Greek Experience

A travel blog entry by pchun88

From democracy to fraternities we owe a lot to ancient Greece. But what of modern day Greece? Like any other western European city, Athens has all the amenities. Ancient ruins, a nicely run metro system, and why not, let's throw in a couple McDonald's in there. We stayed at the Acropol Hotel with an 8 storey view of the city as told by our …

Athens- An ancient city

... that had been woven over the entire year by Athenian virgins. This also was the place that the great philosophers walked and taught, Socrates, Plato and others. Even Paul preached the gospel of Christ here on Mars Hill overlooking the Agora. Everywhere we look, there is a wall, a column, a statue or a block that was part of an ancient history we could only try to imagine. We wandered for nearly an hour and a half, reading signs and trying to imagine what the ...

    An antique atmosphere

    Reviewed Nov 6, 2010

    The hotel had an antique atmosphere for its articles of furniture, some of the staffs were homely, and it looked like a family-run hotel.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Acropolis House Athens

    Basic Clean Rooms, Great Location and Service

    from

    Good Plaka Location (one block from the Church of the Metamorphasis) for a basic, clean hotel. If you are expecting spacious bathrooms, elevators and balconies, look elsewhere for more money. Price includes simple breakfast; all non-smoking rooms. Outstanding staff! Would stay there again. Also look at the Adonis Hotel across the street which has an outstanding roof terrace with a view of the Acropolis.

    Great location, friendly staff

    from

    We found the Acropolis House Pension in the Plaka to be in a great location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The price, which includes breakfast, was quite reasonable. The hotel is old, so don't expect the Hilton. But my family enjoyed staying there. I would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in Athens.

    'An Affordable Safe Haven' for budget travler

    from

    I found the Hotel to be clean. The Staff was very personable, helpful and charming above all. I was travelling alone and a man followed me back to the hotel and tried to come up to my room and the night clerk stopped him short. The Hotel is well located and within walking distance of the Acropolis.

    Welcome to Athens

    from

    I have stayed at the Acropolis House on three occassions. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are clean and comfortable, good breakfast is served. Rates are good. Situated in the heart of Athens on the edge of Plaka. On a Sunday morning you wake to the sound of the bell from the Orthodox Church along the street and there are wonderfrull views of the Acropolis lit up at night Not top of the range but a great atmosphere and as authentic a taste of Greece as you will get in its Capitol. Wouldn't miss it any time I am in Athens.

    Great experiance

    from

    Great place to stay. Rooms with a vieuw (and terrace) -first floor.

    Reasonable prices and friendly owner

    Old style pension

    from

    I have stayed at the Akropolis House on at least six different occasions. Obviously, I like the place. I like the reasonable prices (especially with the Euro skyrocketing), I like the staff (whether they are in a good mood and talkative or whether they are a bit grouchy), I love the old building (a former mansion), I love the street (a pedestrian walkway that takes you right to the heart of the Plaka), and I love the modest breakfast (warm bread, jam, good coffee, tang-type juice, hardboiled egg, and, of course, a few olives). Most of all, I like it (and this is why some folks don't) because it's NOT a 'real' hotel, with shiny surfaces, big lobbies, chilling air-conditioning (some rooms have it), and staff trained by corporate travel-types to smile whenever they speak, even if they are being of no help whatsoever. The staff are real people who, if given a chance and not treated like "staff", will be happy to talk with you forever about anything, including the neigborhood and the sites, or the history of the area and the current challenges facing Greece. But yes, be forewarned, the lighting is weak, you carry your own bags up marble stairs, the rooms are modest, some have private bathrooms across the hall, all that. But i always found the rooms and bathrooms sparkling clean (i wouldn't stay if it wasn't so).

    It's life - you don't get what you don't pay for!

    from

    Was suspicious about the review from NY, NY. It doesn't pay to expect too much if you don't pay too much. I've stayed 4 times over 10 years at Acropolis House. I chose it for its location, location, location.

    I had very good service the hotel management, owners and staff were fantastic, the rooms are not modern but clean & basic and the hotel in a great location. I met people from all over the world most were returning guests...that says more to me than anything. Fantastic stay!!

    Loved it

    from

    i have stayed at the acropolis house three times. it not modern. it is not initially friendly. but it offers safe, clean accomodations at reasonable prices in the best neighborhood (the plaka), a short walk from the acropolis. please understand that this is not a high end hotel that caters to guests demands. they have a variety of rooms in this very old guest house - some with air conditionioning and private baths - but do not expect american standards compared to a "holiday Inn" in the states. if an american or european walks in and begins making demands, he will not be met with courtesy. if their rooms are full that is the end of the story. what you see is what you get. my experiences at this hotel have been very good. paying guests are treated very well.

    Horrible horrible horrible

    from

    I have seldom stayed in a worse place anywhere in the world. I have travelled extensively as have the 3 other people with me and we all hated it here. The rooms were shabby, bathrooms were dangerous, public rooms filthy and need painting, and very inefficient and sometimes very nasty personnel. I cannot for the life of me understand how this place got good reviews. Perhaps years ago it was nice but now it is vile. Or perhaps they paid someone to get a good review. All reviewers ought to reassess this place because they are misleading travellers. The only thing to recommend it is the location; there are many other properties in Plaka. I strongly advise avoiding this place.
