Historical Traveler Reviews Athens Cypria Hotel
Outstanding location - Excellent value
I stayed at the Athens Cypria Hotel for two nights after a trip to Kefalonia. It was my second visit to Athens and from my arrival to my departure I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. If your a single traveler like I was, request room 608 which has an enormous balcony with an unobstructed view of the Acropolis. The room was very basic, but the location is so convenient to everything that you're rarely in it. Just minutes from the Plaka, Syntagma Square, Acropolis, shopping on Ermou and Kolonoski, etc. this is perhaps the best value/location of any hotel Ive ever stayed at. Service is excellent too, including the full breakfast. Well done!!
Great hotel, great location
Athens Cypria is a great hotel in a great location. It's walking distance from the Acropolis, Plaka, Syntagma Square and it's metro stop, bus stop for the airport shuttle, and the main shopping areas. The rooms are a good size with nice, new bathrooms. Ours had a balcony with a view of the Acropolis. Rooms 603-607 are the rooms with views of the Acropolis. The staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good for European standards. For the rate, location and quality of hotel, I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.
This is the perfect location when in Athens. You can walk all over and take the new subway(immaculate) everywhere. I had last been in Athens 12 years ago and it is sooo much improved. Clean air, cabbies are better and clean streets. The hotel room was small, we had a view of the Acropolis(pretty at night) hey who spends time in your hotel for a short stay...if you want luxury this is not the place go around the crner to the Ritz. But if you want reasonable with the best location...stay here!
Cyrpia is a Great Hotel
Great Hotel. Very quiet, clean and friendly hotel. The staff was great. The location was perfect. If your visiting Athens for the first time. I definatly recommend the Cypria.
My husband and I stayed at the Athens Cypria and we had a very pleasant stay. The reception desk people are very helpful and nice. They let us check-in early (8:00AM) which was very convenient after arriving from Cairo at 6:30 AM. The complimentary fruit was delicious and the view to the Acropolis from our 6th floor room was magnificient. I highly recommend this hotel, and if we ever go back to Athens we will definetively stay at the Cypria.

Great little hotel with an excellent location
I've stayed at the Cypria twice and have found the hotel to be very comfortable, the staff to be most accommodating and the location excellent. From the front door you're only steps away from most anything you want to visit in downtown Athens. I highly recommend the hotel.
Peacefullness and freshness in the middle of Athens
We stayed in Athens Cypria Hotel in the beginning of September and we spent a good time. If you have just arrived to Athens by bus from the airport and is hot as hell you will want a fresh and quite room...............Athens Cypria Hotel is the place!!! The room is a bit small but confortable and the AC works. Unfortunetly our balcony didn't have Acropolis view, some have. The breakfast was good and the welcoming drink is a good idea! The hotel is right in the center of the city just a few steps from Syntagma Square and a frog leap from Plaka, the Acropolis and all the other atraction points. If you want a cheap and central place to stay in Athens the Athens Cypria Hotel is a good choice.
My wife and I stayed at the Athens Cypria for six days in September, 2003. This hotel is in an excellent location, just off Ermou St., the upscale shopping street; a five minute walk to Syntagma Square; and about a ten minute pleasant walk to the Plaka. Our room was adequately sized for two, with included bath. All rooms are air-conditioned, the included breakfast was good, and the staff very helpful. And to top it off, the rate was very reasonable, considering it's right in the middle of Athens. Have nothing but good memories of our stay there. Strongly recommend it.
A quiet corner
We were in Athens for a few days in early June, staying at the Athens Cypria. It is a very clean pleasant, well priced hotel. The breakfast room is cheery and bright with sky lights. The people working in the hotel were very helpful and recommended some good dinner spots. Our room was on a lower floor facing out toward the back of other buildings(basically a big air shaft), but there was no noise and we could see the sky. Considering the shape Athens is in today, that was all good. Many of the other hotels we had thought about staying in were either being remodeled or had digs outside their doors. The Cypria is just off Ermou on a tiny street. It is very convenient to both the Plaka and Syntagma Square. But most of all , it is quiet and clean and the air conditioning works well. Athens is a mess. There is construction everywhere. Cement dust and compressor noise,exposed pipes and detours are a constant. Many sights and sites are closed for remodeling for the Olympics. If you have a choice put off Athens for another time.

Leaving behind the chic neighborhoods of Kifissia we are supposed to spend 2 nights in a centrally located hotel. After an urgent call my husband receives, he is compelled to return home. I remain of course since besides the 3 Business Meetings I have, I am to meet friends from Cyprus too. I pick the train from KAT train station to …
... ventured out to a restaurant about a half an hour walk away that was apparently traditional and highly recommended by the receptionist. It was just OK...they were cleaning up and getting ready for dinner later on. We were way too early! I think the Moussaka I ordered had been sitting there all day so wasn't the best. Gee we noticed how bad things looked, shop after shop was closed, prices of clothes were so cheap. Everything looked so dirty....even ...
... first time, it is important that they have the ongoing, continuous restoration project going on to preserve the historical monument for future generations.
To our surprise as we were walking back down the hill of the Acropolis towards the theatre of Dionysus, we stumbled across a tortoise plodding up the hill amongst the ruins. It was quite an unusual sight, and I am not sure where on earth it came from, or what it was doing there. It seemed quite at ...
... I was right in the doorway but there were a bunch of passengers pushing back at me. They were nicely dressed middle-aged men and women. I quickly side stepped them but, bam!, I was blocked again. I could see Joanne in the swarm of bodies out in the boarding area and she was getting upset. The doors were going to close. I got elbowy and rammed my way out. I immediately knew what had happened and reached down to touch my wallet. Gone! I yelled ...
... since Greece is cash strapped. Even so, it is hard not to see the magnificence of the architecture. We also wandered through the Ancient Agora and visited the museum there. As always in our travels, we wonder why it took us so long to come here. After having a 2 hour nap, Larry and I wandered through central Athens, sampled Greek gyros on pitas and watched a mixture ...
