          Upon first glance, this hotel is little more than a clean room and bathroom away from the hordes. However, the beds are very comfortable. The room comes with extra pillows and blankets already in the closets. They too are quite cozy. However, what really makes this hotel excellent is the friendly, helpful, and fabulous english speaking staff. From recommending a place to eat to organizing a tour for you, this staff really goes out of its way to help its guests.

          They say first impressions stick. well our bathroom has no light fitted, is about the size of a bar fridge, and smelled like some old obesse man had had his way with the facilities before we got in. But the beds are clean and comfortable and the beer was cheap and cold. The staff seemed friendly enought but are happy just to leave you to your own devices.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Attalos Hotel Athens

          Sufficient for a night or two


          This hotel isn't bad. It's convienently located. The staff is relatively pleasant. The breakfast is pretty standard. The bathroom was clean, although we did notice an odd odor from the drains once or twice. They put us in a triple room when we asked for a double. And the mattress had this really sharp point that scratched me. As if it had a button missing that had torn the cover. So I had to sleep with a towel covering that spot. It was reasonably priced and had a great rooftop bar.

          Location is great


          The location is the strongest reason to stay here. It is close to the Metro, Acropolis, the flea market, restaurants. I would not recommend the breakfast...its pricey 8 euros a person...and it is quite bland (boiled eggs, bread, salami, cheese). There are plenty of restaurants walking distance to the hotel that have a better (and cheaper) breakfast. The rooms are small, but clean. I have stayed at other hotels in Athens that are also 3-star hotels and this is much nicer.

          Definetly worth the money


          Our room was very nice at Hotel Attalos. It was definetly worth the money compared to some of the other places I saw. The hotel staff was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. The location was very central to ancient athens and all the shopping.



          Our family of six stayed here Easter week. There is no sound insulation - we were awakened by outside revelers and all night by the teenage girls in the halls and adjacent rooms. Even our teenage boys were up several times during the night asking them to be quiet. Rooms are spartan, there were holes in the sheets, altho the rooms are clean. The bathroom had a horrible sewer smell which seemed to emanate from the toilet.Breakfast is very basic. I would not stay here again, altho the location is wonderful. This place was not a good value, and had too many groups of teenagers passing thru for the night.

          Location is the key . . .


          We've stayed here on several occasions, and the situation is the key.

          Close to the urban village life of the markets, Plaka easily strollable to, excellent food and nightlife at nearby Psiri - Platia Iroon highly recommended; and of course the Sunday fleamarket. It can be noisy - it's those echoing corridors you often get in Greek hotels - but the staff are friendly (they booked us a table at the wonderful Stoa Athanaton and kept me in the picture with English soccer results once they knew I was interested. And the rooftop bar . . .

          Good Value


          Stayed there May 2003 and loved it. Location was excellent - walk to plaka, syntagma, omonio. Near shopping. The hotel is kept very clean.

          The room itself was fine - fit 3 single beds, had a tv, bathroom (what more do you need really?). The breakfast was fine. The roof top bar was fantastic! Sitting there during happy hour, looking at the view of the Acropolis and the city of Athens was so amazing!!!! Late at night with the city lights twinkling and the Acropolis all lit up it was the ultimate way to end a day in Athens! The Attalos may not be your fanciest hotel but we thought it was very good value for the money. The staff was great - recommended a fabulous restaurant called Hermion. I'd stay there again.

          Not worth the price


          I was very disappointed by our room at the Hotel Attalos--I would have thought it was pretty good for half the price, but 70 euros was too much for such a rundown room. The beds were saggy, and the bathroom was especially depressing. It looked clean, but didn't smell like it. The furniture was also old and beat-up, and the breakfast was just okay: the orange juice tasted like Tang and the cornflakes were stale. I also didn't love the location; it was central, but on a street that was a bit uglier than most of those nearby. Also, it was rather noisy. Maybe I'm just getting old and fussy, but I wouldn't stay here again.

          All About Location


          Location and A/C are the highlights of the Attalos. We stayed for one night in August and were able to walk to everything we wanted to see.

          The room was basic but comfortable, no problems with the bathroom.

          Noise level was quite high - mainly due to people in the hallway being noisy and the elevator maintenance that went on ALL NIGHT while we tried to sleep. Staff was nice enough and will let you leave your bags once you check out. Paid 76 Euro for room and breakfast which was good - enough variety to satisfy us. Overall, we would recommend it for a night or two - just bring your earplugs.

          Stay Here!


          Stayed here with my brother in Sept 2003. The staff were all really lovely, our room was large, light and airy, with decent sized bathroom. Very comfortable. Even though you were above a busy street, with the windows closed (they must be triple glazed and crucially there was air-conditioning) you couldn't hear a thing. But when not sleeping, the balcony with chairs on it is fine people-watching territory! Really nice restaurants nearby, ESPECIALLY THE TAVERNA PROTOGENOUS just round the corner. AMAZING VALUE FOR MONEY. Roof Bar and Garden is also brilliant, with stunning views of Acropolis. Very good position, close to most archaeological sites. STAY HERE!!!I can't wait to get back!

          Have stayed many days and nights at the Attalos Hotel. It is truly the greatest home away from home.

          Today we started our Greek adventure. Our hotel had a car available for the airport, so in keeping with a sense of entitlement now that we are 70--and in the light of the fact that by the time we would cab to the train station and pay two fares for the airport train, we wouldn't save much more than 20 euros, we opted for convenience. We got there …

          Today, we prepared to climb up to the Acropolis. We put on our study hiking shoes and grabbed our hiking poles. Then when we cheerily greeted the man at the desk, he looked us over and said, "I'm sorry, but the Acropolis is closed today." He pointed to a notice indicating that Saturday was the second day of a 48 hour strike of public employees and …

          When you look at it from the streets of Athens, the acropolis looks impossible to climb, and we went there armed with hiking poles and our sturdiest shoes. However, it is good to realize that not only did the ancient Greeks climb up there routinely, they marched up …
