TravelPod Member ReviewsApollo Hotel Athens
Welllllll, I would have not given it the 3 star rating it has otherwise it was a great hotel, nice people, but not much more than a hostel with your own 3x5 bathroom and 8x10 room. Very clean though. Side step into shower and to sit on toilet. Free breakfast (I hope so) It looks like what is not eaten is saved for next day and selection table is like at home you set out plates and bowls so guests can help themselves. Its free so again what can you say. WiFi is free and works great from your room.

Historical Traveler Reviews Apollo Hotel Athens
Das Apollo war großartig, sauber, nettes Personal
Mir hat der Aufenthalt im Apollo Hotel in Athen sehr gut gefallen. Es liegt in der Nähe der U-Bahnstation Metaxagorio. Die Zimmer waren sauber und mit Fernseher, Klimaanlage, großartigen Betten, Kühlschrank und Safe ausgestattet.
Das Frühstück war großartig. Auf dem Dach des Gebäudes gab es eine Terrasse mit einer Bar. Es war dort oben sehr schön und romantisch, man konnte auf ganz Athen blicken und die Akropolis bei Nacht ist einfach nur super.
Das gesamte Personal war sehr freundlich und das Internet sehr günstig.
Ich war mit meiner Mutter für 9 Tage hier und es gab nie einen Grund, sich über etwas zu beschweren.
Draußen war es über 45 Grad Celsius heiß, die Klimaanlage war also ein Muss.
Ich würde definitiv wieder in dieses Hotel gehen :).
Apollo Hotel: quanto rumore!!!!
Non tornerei più all'Hotel Apollo perchè le stanze al primo e al se condo piano ( questa è stata la nostra esperienza) erano esposte al traffico notturno di Atene. In pratica era esattamente come dormire sulla strada:tutta notte frenate, motori, clacson!!!!!!
Detto questo ( e non è di poco conto, visto che riposare in viaggio è importante....) l'hotel è molto pulito, il personale gentile ( imperdibile la signora del turno del giorno, deliziosamente speciale) e la colazione accettabile, anche se appena nei limiti.
Gli arredi e i bagni sono un capitolo un po' a parte. Un po' vecchi e antiquati, però puliti.
La fermata della metro è vicina, però per andare in centro occorre comunque cambiare, ad es. a Omonia. e c'è un treno ogni 10 minuti, quindi si perde un po' di tempo nei trasporti.
Ho alloggiato diverse volte ad Atene: se si riesce a trovare hotel più centrali, da cui raggiungere il centro a piedi, o almeno sulla linea blu, che porta sempre in centro e anche all'aeroporto ( molto strategica) si guadagna tempo. Ma vanno prenotati con mesi di anticipo....
Beau,bon et pas cher
chambre tres propre et petite douche comme partout en grece (j'ai fais 6 hotels un peu partout dans les iles) .Les lits sont propres et confortables.Femme de chambre tres tres tres ordonnée.Le premier soir apres 15 heures de vol et d'attente dans des aeroports.je ne fais que vider la valise n'importe comment pour prendre des vetements et le lendemain, je rentre et tout est tres bien placé (on aurais dit ma mere).
Le petit déjeuner etait bien surtout la salle toute vitrée. Le metro est juste a coté et 3 stations pour arriver a l'acropole.
Le quartier de l'autre coté de la rue laisse a désiré mais derriere l'hotel c'est tres bien. Épicerie au coin de la rue.Notre chambre au 5ieme etait avec balcon et pas trop bruyante puisque haute. La dame a la reception etait tres gentille.
Je recommande cet hotel a tous car le rapport qualité/prix est tres bien et pour 3 stations de metro ca ne vaut pas la peine de payer plus pour etre a Plaka.
The Apollo was great. Clean, nice staff.
I loved staying at the Apollo Hotel, in Athens. It was very close to the Metaxagorio Underground station. It had clean, nice rooms with TV, A/C, great beds, refrigerator, safe (included). The breakfast was great, the top of the building was a patio with a bar that is so romantic and gorgeous, you can see all of Athens and the Acropolis at night is amazing. All of the staff is very friendly and there is internet that is cheap. Me and my Mom stayed there 9 days and never were dissatisfied at all. The outside temp. was 110 degrees (or 40-45), so the A/C was necessary. I would definitely stay there again. : )
We're a young gay couple and stayed at Apollo Hotel for 2 nights, before going to Mykonos.
The Hotel was very nice, and very well located. About 1 or 2 minutes from the Metro.
We had a room with a great view to the Acropole. There's some noise outside all night, but, tired of walking as we were, we fall asleep as we touch the bed!
We think that the breakfast was nice! A little bit of everything for every tastes.
The personal was very friendly and helpful.
A nice hotel to stay.
Good place to stay if you're watching your money
The hotel staff is very friendly and accomodating. The rooms are small (the smallest shower in the world!) but clean. Wifi if you go to the lobby. Make sure to ask for a room in the back. The ones in the front are extremely noisy. A good deal for the money. The location is nothing special but if you're looking for something under $100, this works very well.
Great Hotel. Ideally located close to metro and within walking distance from Omonia.
Rooms were clean and tidy and the housekeepers were amazing each day, arranging things perfectly.
Only downside is that the Hotel is on busy street, so people may find noise hard to sleep thru. I had no problem.
Try the Greek taverna behind the Hotel opposite...lovely food at a cheap price.
We just returned from Athens, and had a great experience with this hotel! The reception staff was amazingly helpful, especially the day receptionist. We had a problem with a tour group that we had booked a day trip with, and the receptionist very kindly dealt with the situation with the Greek only speaking staff of the tour company. Rooms were clean, and had a great view of the Acropolis. Better service than some 5 star resorts I have stayed in.
Excellent view of the Acropolis from our room. Close to metro, train, supermarket, laundromat and kiosks. Internet available in lobby (with charge). Very friendly and helpful staff - Dimitrios was wonderful, with plently of tips and advice. Can get a bit noisy as the rooms overlook a main route for morning commuters.
Complain about this hotel
Living in Hotel Apollo is the worst experience during our holiday in Greece. We fell very disappointed with Hotel Apollo. Details is described as follows:
We booked a double room in hotel.de and expected it would provide a wonderful night at our last night in Greece, since the introduction said there was balcony and also we could have a good view over Acropolis in the Roof Garden. I should say it is not the case at all. No balcony, no any wonderful view, the worst is its awful service. Everything came from one of the staff of this hotel. He showed his impoliteness to us from the first beginning. When we came into the hotel and want to check in at 6 pm on September 6, 2006. He used a strain of interogation to ask our personal information. He even teased us when we asked him about whether it was free of the baggage deposit in the hotel. Maybe we didn't understand him properly, then he answer us rudely:"We are very rich. We don't need your money". It was just the beginning. At that evening, his impoliteness didn't draw any back. About 10 pm, we told him that we need a bottle of boiled water. He said:"it is an problem. No one in the kitchen now." I just asked him whether he can help us to deal with it. He refused us firmly. He even said:"This is Europe. We don't provide you any boiled water. No european asks boiled water in the hotel. Only the people from Asia like China, Hong Kong, Taiwan...". (almost the original words from him). At that moment, we were really irritated with his words and his attitude to the customer. This is the so-called "service" in this hotel. He refused to give any service probably partly because he didn't want to do that partly because we are Asian. As he mentioned, this is Europe, it is no need for him to take care of our requests. However, no hotel in Greece has done anything like that to us before that. We stayed in 3 hotels (2 in Athen and 1 in Nafplion) in Greece before that night. We asked boiled water from all hotels and they were all very kind to serve us. Of course, we couldn't accept his explaination and the unhappy quarrel happened between us afterward. Not only didn't this staff appologize to us, but also he was fully out of control. He shouted to us that "In such price, what kind of service can you expect?". Meanwhile, He threaten us that he would call the police and he plied with us when we wanted to go back to our room.

... these guys invented so much of this stuff. Architecture, democracy, language - all thousands of years ago. We went to the original Olympic stadium and had a similar experience. We had lunch at a little cafe that had rows of fresh dishes laid out, all fresh. Loved it, I was just disappointed my hut couldn't hold more. Another unforgettable day brought to and end with a couple of rusty nails to accompany a big fat ...
Wow what an absolutely amazing time I have just had in Athens and Greek Island hopping from Mykonos to Paros to Santorini to Ios with the Busabout crew. In my three months of travels leaving Greece has been the hardest place to leave so far and I am positive I will be back again! Over the last two weeks I have met the most amazing people (you know who you are!); had my fair share of wine (and tequila shots); danced the night away in (and on) bars; spent lots of time relaxing ...
... messed up the words. But today I focused and performed well. Foreigners love spirituals so they gave a loud applause. It felt really good.
Finally Dance of Zalongo. When this song was announced we heard a lot of murmuring in the crowd. We sounded really good today on it and we were energized. This song is so demanding for the performer to bring everything that we have. I think the choir did that today and the crowd again was very impressed. ...
Today here in Athens, I've finally learned the true meaning of that saying. There's some really old **** here!! In an effort to find something a little different to do in the city, I found a place that offered bicycle tours of Ancient Athens and pre-arranged a 2 hour tour. After our little fiasco yesterday wasting time looking for things, I thought I'd adopt the "ask and ye shall receive" approach and get some directions, even though I had pretty good ones already from the ...
... and a stroll through the backstreets of the Plaka (where we bumped into an old work colleague Duncan - talk about a small world!), before heading back to the hotel for a swim, sauna and a nap. That night, we explored Gazi, a busy centre for restaurants, clubs and other nightlife, before taking in the views of Acropolis lit up and the changing of the guard in nearby Syntagma Square from the Grand Bretagne rooftop bar. Our second full day in Athens starred out with a ...
