Woke up early to catch a cab to the airport for our short flight to Athens. We caught the bus part way to our hotel at which point the bus driver informed us we would have to take the metro one stop to get to where we were going? Upon arriving at Syntagmatos Square we saw all sorts of booths set up with "real democracy" protest style signs …
Having arrived at Athens international in the early afternoon (carried by Easyjet from London Gatwick) the next step was working out how to get to central Athens. Not too difficult accept the airport isn't terribly well sign posted. We made our way out, ignored the arrows and worked out the train station was up a level. Purchasing a joint ticket …

... fluffy dog, breed indeterminate, wandered up and stretched out in the sun beside us. An Acropodog!! Ha. Then we wandered into the Agora, an ancient marketplace at the foot of the acropolis. Lots of monuments and interesting signs saying "do not smoke as you may start a fire". By this stage we were overwhelmed with antiquity so did the mindless touristy thing of trawling through the shops. Alex found a headdress, see the picture.
... Worked out quite nicely though. There is a hotel across the lane way which has tables & chairs lined up next to the agora. The hotelier suggested I stop for a drink, marvelous idea! As I sat down to write this diary I got to see the sunset over the agora entrance. It was beautiful. Then an acoustic band started playing traditional Greek music. Sitting there enjoying a quiet beer, listening to local tunes and watching a beautiful sunset, was definitely a life is good ...

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.
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.
