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.
A very pleasant stay at The Art Hotel
This newly renovated hotel is a great choice for people wanting access to the center of Athens.
The hotel had a driver meet us at the airport. We felt that we were in good hands from the moment we arrived.
The hotel's location is a short walk to the national museum, and a quick local bus ride to the Acropolis. 5 Euros paid for an all-day bus pass, so we were able to visit many sites without further expense. And the bus wasn't crowded.
The suggestions by the Art Hotel reception staff as to where to eat were right on target. We requested "Authentic Greek" cuisine with local atmosphere. We didn't want tourist trap food, and they guided us to the perfect locations. Their touring suggestions were very helpful also. They sat down with us and went over many attractions and how best to see them.
We had made a reservation for another hotel on our return from Santorini, but canceled it and decided to stick with The Art Hotel, since we doubted that we were going to find a better night stay.
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)
A boutique hotel in the big city
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!
Nice and clean rooms, a comfortable hall, a cosy restaurant, an original decoration (Japanese type, canvas paintings, china) justifying its name.
I was surprised that my Greek colleagues didn´t know anything about this hotel, instead they recommeneded a couple of others. Though I was going on a business trip, I felt very reluctant to be alone there, in such a big city, locked up in a "solitary" room of a 9-storey hotel. And I can say honestly that I found a totally different atmosphere in the Art Hotel. The staff was friendly and nice, the night I arrived there I was served coffee to my room (free-of-charge!) and
every day I was treated as if I had been the only guest there.
Finally I understood why nobody knew anything about Art Hotel.
The thing is that it was recently refurbished, just before the Olmpics took place in Greece. So I thought I owed those wonderful people a praising review. I sincerely recommend this hotel and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
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.
Funky, stylish hotel - poor location.
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!

... easily made our way on the train to the closest stop to our hotel. Lots of concerning looking people on the train though and the usual gypsy like beggars walking through. We kept a check on our bags and David's wallet that's for sure!
We contemplated walking our cases to the hotel but I was glad we waited for a taxi instead. Was only around a ten minute walk but was a little uphill and this, added to heavy suitcases would not have seen Annie Mac a ...
... the battle between the gods and giants, winding its way from the main city gate of the Agora towards the Acropolis.
Last stop on our tour of Ancient Athens was the sacred hill of the Acropolis. With its long history, it is best known for its monuments of Classical Greek civilisation and the buildings erected during the middle of the 5th century BC when Athens was at the height of its power. You enter through the Propylaea, with the small ...
... best digs in the country, awesome stuff. Down in the boarding area we let one sardine-can crowded train pass and waited for an uncrowded one. We travel a lot in busy urban situations so Joanne and I have pick-pocket protocols in place. Protocol: If possible avoid crowds. The problem with uncrowded trains is that they can turn into crowded trains very quickly and ours did. As we approached our stop, Joanne noticed an old lady had thrown her ...
... we saw the Temple of Poseidon from the 5th century BCE which sits atop a rock summit overlooking the Aegean sea. It was about a 30 minute drive from the airport through olive groves and little villages lined with colourful oleanders and curving, narrow streets. On the drive we caused the death of a pigeon which left its body outline on the front windshield. Even the tour guide cried out in surprise when it happened. It was only a few blocks later when ...

We also went to a big shopping centre, it was right next to the Olympic Village where the 2004 Olympics were held. Mum bought ...
