Song of the day: Greece (is the word)
"Grease is the word (is the word that they heard)
It's got groove, it's got meaning
Grease is the time, is the place, is the motion
Grease is the way we are feeling"
OK taking some poetic license with the spelling.
So this week is continental Greece. In a couple of …
... of other tourists, until we reached a plateau. On one side the view of the remains was wonderful and on the other the view over Athens and Piraeus was spectacular. On reaching the top there was a tremendous view of the Parthenon and other remains. We spent a long time wandering over the site, very wary of the smooth rocks and stones which were a slip hazard. It is a breath taking site. We then walked back down ...
... I was reluctant to try it as I can remember detesting mum's moussaka as a child (sorry mum). We ordered one plate between the two of us. The moussaka was fantastic! Once again the bus ride sucked! Why oh why are there not more train connections in Eastern Europe? I really have nothing to say about it other than it was once again a dull long tiring journey. Since heading into ...
... boarding passes for our flight to Athens (at least that's what they told us in Nairobi). We got to the desk just after 10 a.m., and noticed on the departures board that our flight to Athens had departed at 9:47 a.m. Sad faces all around. When we made it to the desk, we were told there was another flight to Athens leaving around 3 p.m. that they would try to get us on. Rachelle was very encouraged and excited, but I preferred to take a "wait and ...

I spent my final night in Greece drinking wine with some of the people I met at my hostel. Their names were Tary, Sarah, Bianca, Claire, and Amber. Sarah and Bianca were two Australians that were traveling through Europe for an indefinite period of time. Claire and Amber were two students from Wisconsin who were studying in Spain and were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Airotel Alexandros Athens
3 days vacation so much better than any expectations. Alexandros hotel is quiet place in beautiful and safe area. It is very convenient located just a few minutes away, walking distance, from the closest metro station, which provides easy transportation to all the places to see in city. Incredible good combination of quietness and convenience. Excellent restaurant, perfect service, helpfull and friendly staff are making the stay there even more pleasant. This is a place with great atmosphere where you can fully enjoy Athens and your vacation.
Arrived early to the hotel and we were upgraded to the Bronze Suite. Huge room with California King, sitting area with chairs and couch, and a huge bathroom. Shower (that floods the floor, as usual in Athens) plus bathtub with 2 sinks. Very stylish decor-black walls, modern art on the walls and plants in vases. Decent buffet breakfast is included with the usual trimmings plus some nice extras: fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, breakfast meats. The staff was always friendly and especially helpful, including the front desk and manager. All common areas were very well-kept, cool and clean. Free internet in the lobby (1 computer only). Nice lobby bar, but very small. Didn't try the restaurant for dinner.
location is good, just 1 min walk from the airport bus (x95) station.
Room was a little cramped and simple by U.S. standards, but clean. We were able to get this room (albeit expensive) at a time when there was a run on hotel rooms due to Eurovision semis and finals.
Our 4 days stay at the Hotel Alexandros was as magnificient as the City itself. Clean, comfortable, excellent accomodations, incredible staff that went out of their way to assist us in any way they could.
Wonderful Hotel - Fabulous Location - Terrific Staff!
As someone who is very picky about hotels, I was pleasantly suprised with this one. I went with 5 other friends. We stayed in triple rooms and they were pretty big and comfortable. Breakfast was good, and it was in a good location. But the best part was the staff. They were outstanding!! They took very good care of us. Yiannis particularly went above and beyond to make sure our stay was a good one. We were so impressed with the hotel that we returned to Athens for two extra nights at the end of our stay. I highly reccommend it.
A very decent choice
About a week ago we spent a couple of nights in Athens in this downtown hotel. We had booked without really knowing anything about it except its super convenient location (right next to the old town and the Acropolis) but it turned out to be more than a decent choice. Nothing flashy but the rooms were very nice and the breakfast was very good. Above all, the staff was welcoming and very friendly. I'd say it was an excellent price/quality deal.
Nice hotel. Pretty good location, except that from Plaka on Friday evening we couldn't find a cab driver willing to drive that direction because of traffic (which ended up not being bad at all).
We booked using -----. When we arrived at the hotel, they said they had no record of your pre-paid reservation. They refered back to their reservation office and finally straigtened everything out. I'm not sure if the mistake was from ----- or their end. So definitely re-confirm ahead of time!
We didn't bother to ask for a non-smoking room, so we had a run-of-the-mill smoking room. The room was not very spacious, but all of the ameneties were as expected.
The complimentary continental breakfast buffet was surprising and excellent.
This hotel was a very nice surprise. At the end of our Greek Islands getaway we decided to spend one more night in Athens. Before leaving Santorini we booked on line with Expedia, as we didn't want to spend the whole night searching for somewhere. As there was no hotels in the Plaka area available and the Alexandros didn't look to far off from the main attractions we decided to book. The hotel itself is in a lovely and safe area by all of the embassy's. The decor is very modern with all of the amenities you would expect from a 4 star hotel. The concierge were very friendly and helpful and the breakfast in the morning was very good.
While definitely a business type hotel due to the hotel's proximity to many embassies including the VERY well fortified American embassy, this is still a comfortable, unprentious stay for the tourist as well. The building is new; thus the rooms and public areas are modern looking with the not unattractive use of glass and metals to tart up the public areas. The breakfast is really tasty, offering both western and greek specialities. If you like good strong coffee, this is the place. Rooms are good sized, clean, efficiently laid out and have balconies. Most look onto the ancient church which fronts the horse shoe driveway to the hotel. The hotel is not in the center/plaka area but the subway is a five minute walk and just a few stops from everything. There are shops and restaurants everywhere in close proximity. The Alexandros is a good stay for safety, comfort and accessibility to services. Highly recommended.
