Travel Blogs from Athens
Sasha and I flew Easyjet to Athens. The flight was very delayed for various reasons known only to Easyjet and we didn't arrive at our hotel until after 11.00pm after taking the metro to the nearest stop and then taking a taxi for the last few Kms to the hotel. The hotel was nice and good value for money if a bit noisy however the a/c left a bit to …
... her feet. Besides I needed new sandals, because my feet were about to be destroyed as well since I had been using flip flops all the time. Originally we wanted to wait for India or China and buy really cheap ones but since we are about to go to Africa we decided to buy them. We spent EUR 130 between Tez Salomon shoes and my sandals. This left us behind our budget but it was a must since we walk some much every day.
The day was extremely hot and it was the middle of September ...
... memory. But what kind of story would that be? After watching everybody else from our flight pick up their baggage from the carousel, with ours nowhere to be found, we traipsed off to the baggage tracking counter, where they were fortunately able to locate Rachelle's bag (which had come in on an earlier flight) but not mine. "Most probably it's in Cairo" the girl at the counter told me, which I found very reassuring. They gave me a baggage claim ...
... companies at the gate (yellow, red and blue) were about 20 euros each but for our group of 5 we negotiated to 10 euros each adult and Amber free.
The city streets were quiet and we realized that it was Sunday - so good planning as Athens traffic is supposed to be horrendous. The city itself was very faded glory, lots of abandoned building projects, rubbish and weeds not sprayed - but maybe it looks better when everything is open. We drove past a couple of little beaches that ...
... out for some Greek fast food, explored a bit, then came back to the hotel and crashed.
I was a little disappointed with the activity in Greece. After seeing the Acropolis, then hiking our way up Mount Lycabettus, we ran out of things to do. I mean the Acropolis was awesome, and the Parthenon was incredible. But I was a little let down by other things to do in Athens. It seemed we spent the rest of our time getting lost in the windy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Art Hotel Athens
Great small hotel
The art hotel is a lovley small hotel about 10 mins walk from omina square station, one of the great things about this hotel is the staff are so nice and helpful, something you dont find often in Athens hotels these days, the hotel is nicely decorated and the breakfast room lovley with a decent buffet breakfast, the rooms are clean and comfy some are a bit small but the bathrooms are done out real nice, yes the hotel is in a busy area but we had no problems, all in all this is a great little hotel in Athens i will stay here again.
This newly renovated hotel is a great choice for people wanting access to the center of Athens.
I loved it and would highly recommend to anybody wishing to stay in Athens
I stayed at The Art Hotel in Aug 05 it was fab! The staff provided excellent customer service ... so friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommned this hotel to anybody planning a trip to Athens. I will certainly be returning.
Quiet room in busy city
We booked this hotel via Internet and were a bit frightened that it might be noisy. Well, we were relieved! The rooms are stylish, but cosy, and the staff is very friendly. And, most important, as the hotel is situated on a really busy corner: the windows are soundproof! Breakfast is decent, in a nice room. The neighbourhood is alright; after all, it's downtown in one of the most-crowded European capitals. There are people in the streets at any time of day/night, so there's no need to feel unsafe. Good value!
We just stayed in the Art Hotel about a week ago. It was a great place to stay. The people are really friendly (especially the old guy at night - he got us pizza hehe). The breakfast is good in the morning. They have cereal, crossiants, toast, eggs, ham (meat stuff), sandwhiches you can make. The room was decent! They had a tv, airconditioning and a fridge that kept our coke cold. They don't have ice you can get, but that is common in alot of places your staying in Europe. The bathroom was really cool looking - only draw back that there wasn't a shower curtain, which I don't care if I get the floor a little wet (plus there is a drain - its obvious that is the design). The place was a great stay! The area was fine! I don't know what other people were talking about. It was pretty close to the Omonia station, which took us everywhere around the city. The next stop away is the one for the Parthenon and all that... Just know that if you get into the airport to late they stop the metro after a certain time so a taxi ride is expensive to downtown - also a taxi ride to the omonia station is like 2-3 euros.. not that bad... (we didnt want to walk a couple blocks with all our luggage =P)
I found this hotel on the Web and really liked it. A boutique in the centre of the big city, "It looks cute and must be very cosy", I thought then. And it was!
An excellent choice
We stayed here for 4 nights (with American friends). We all thought it was great. No problem with location (as per previous reviewer) with absolutely no fear of crime, threats or intimidation, did see a couple of 'business ladies' but they were no bother. Being 5 minute walk from Metro (Omonia Square) was great and allowed us to get almost anywhere in the city within 20 minutes. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. A great value choice: we would use again.
We stayed at the Art Hotel in April 2005. Please make sure if you make a reservation here that you get the right hotel as there appear to be two that are similarly named. This one is located at 27 Marnis Street. The hotel is stylish and unique, with great art and design throughout. The rooms are somewhat small (normal for Athens) with contemporary furnishings and marble tiled bathrooms. The bathrooms have tubs with a hand held shower sprayer - but it's quite difficult to try and shower while holding it and there is no shower curtain so it gets water everywhere. The breakfast served each morning was quite good and staff was relatively friendly. I would have given the hotel a four star rating, except for its very poor location. It is probably a six or seven block walk to the subway and the neighborhood is filled with many working class folks, but also with prostitutes, drug addicts and drunks. I would not have wanted to walk alone in this neighborhood by myself late at night. As a result of the neighborhood, there were no neighborhood cafes, bars or shops that could easily be found. The hotel itself though was great.
Most Friendly 4 Star Hotel
Had a week here in March 2005. We've stayed in 20 different 4/5 star hotels in the past 2 years and this is by far the most friendliest. It is family run and we were so touched by one of the family's help and assistance that we bought her a bunch of flowers on the last night!
Cute rooms-medium sized but characterful design and well located.
Great little hotel!
Stayed at this lovely family-run four star hotel for 6 nights and had a great time. The staff are really friendly, always ready to advise on places to go, things to do and fix problems. It's got a very good location as far as travelling around the city goes, much is close by and the nearest Metro is a good hub for getting further afield. Very nicely decorated with pretty art around. The rooms are not huge but not too small either. Definitely recommend Hotel Art if you are coming to this lovely city!
