... in Athens at the time were slaves, but no matter, anyone with an Athenian father could vote. My simple grasp of maths and human nature suggests that a fair proportion of these voters may have, shall we say, “mixed” heritage.
Our first stop is of course the Acropolis and Parthenon. This hot barren hill with the ruined temple on top is not only the symbol of Athens and Greece, but is also a sort ...
... the guards. After that we went to a Lycabettus Hill a lookout where you can see all of Athens, from the islands to the sea. Nice photo op. Last stop was the National Archaeological Museum, this museum contains priceless exhibits that chronicle the birth of civilisation.

... were very tired. On Sunday we made our way back to the city centre to continue with our sightseeing. We still had a few ruins and temples on our list to see. We started with Kerameikos which was an old pottery district in ancient Athens. A lot of the old famous pottery came from this area. There was also a museum there that had a lot of the pottery and other ruins from the district. I found this a bit more interesting than the ruins outside. The Ancient Agora was our next ...

After spending about an hour at Knossos, we drove two hours to Makry Gialos, a little village on the south east coast of Crete. October is the end of season in the Greek Isles so there were very few people on the island that didn’t live there. The drive would have been much shorter if there had been a highway between the airport and the village but the trip was along very slow ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eridanus Hotel Athens
Elegantes boutiques Hotel, klassisch jedoch modern
Erst kürzlich wohnten wir im Akropolis-Blick Zimmer und waren sehr, sehr beeindruckt. Obwohl das Zimmer zur belebten Pireos Strasse raus lag, war es sehr ruhig (mit guter lärmdempfenden Isolierung). Der Blick auf die Akropolis war phantastisch. Wir hatten einen großen Balkon und obwohl es Winter war konnten wir nicht widerstehen draußen zu sitzen. Die Zimmer waren hübsch zeitlos ausgestattet mit einem sehr komfortablem Bett und Sitzgruppe. Das Badezimmer war mit dunkelgrünem Marmor verkleidet mit einer Badewanne und separater Dusche mit Massagedüsen. Leider war der Wasserdruck nicht ausreichend für die Massagedüsen, trotzdem war es nett. Die zur Verfügung gestellten Hausschuhe waren eine nette Geste, zumal der Marmorboden sich etwas kalt anfühlte. Die Bademäntel waren angenehm warm. Es handelt sich hier um eine erst aufkommende Gegend, die noch etwas schmutzig ist, hat jedoch einige sehr gute Restaurants und ist in der Nähe der Psyri Nachbarschaft, wo man viele Bars und Cafés findet. Ich kann dieses Hotel nur empfehlen und würde kurz entschlossen wieder dort absteigen.
Das Hotel ist mit neuen Möbeln ausgestattet und hat viel zu bieten. Freundliche Dienstleistungen, sehr gutes Frühstücks, einmaliger Blick zur Akropolis vom Dachgarten, ruhige Zimmer. Die Lage ist gut -5 Minuten zu Fuß zur Metrostation und 10 Minuten zum Monastiraki Platz. Dieses Hotel kann ich nur empfehlen.
Wonderful Boutique Hotel
After much research and a few other hotels being full, I decided on an Acropolis view room at the Eridanus Hotel for two nights. My wife and I were extremely satisfied with this charming beautiful boutique hotel. The lobby area is attractive and the rooms, although a little small are nicely decorated and well designed. The bed and linens were extremely comfortable. The bathroom had both a tub/shower and a separate larger shower and contained Hermes products. Sodas and water were free from the minibar, which was a nice touch. A hearty breakfast (included) can be enjoyed in the restaurant or delivered to you on your balcony overlooking the Acropolis (a ways off in the distance). It is about a 15 - 20 minute pleasant walk to the Acropolis. The hotel staff were very thoughtful, warm, and friendly. This was such a pleasant change from the typical large scale business type hotel and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We had an extremely short stay- but during this time, we had a little trouble with the air conditioning and the front desk sent someone up immediately. The bed was the most comfortable one we slept on! The hotel was gorgeous. The front desk also assisted us with obtaining a cab and made sure we did not get into a "pirate" cab.
We would definitely stay there again when we return to athens.
Great Hotel, good price
Stayed at the Hotel for eight days, with my wife and small daughter. Its affordable and a very nice Hotel. The location in general is good, but the street it is on is NOT. It is close to the acropolis, but every Hotel in the center is. Anyhow, its a nice place modern, clean rooms, great bath rooms.
I found the acropolis view room (mine was on the ground floor) a bit noisy, but it was big (30 sqm) and had an extra sofa-bed, which our 4 year old daugther slept in. Good and very friendly service all over.
The hotel restaurant is a French, but while the service is good the food is average or below. If in your room, you can order from the very same restaurant the typical hotel-coffee shop stuff (salad, sandwich, pasta) and that is good.
The next door restaurant is a very popular and high end greek fish restaurant. No other place around the corner, but the Hotel is 5 minutes from Plaka and 10 from the Acropolis. Plaka has a lot of restaurants with great food in different price categories.
I would visit the hotel again, if in Athens!
Just to give a feeling about me: For the past 15 years I am touring Europe, Asia and partially America. Staying in 4 and 5 Star Hotels is my life. This small little hotel (38 rooms) is a good place to stay. Seeing the western chains from outside in Athens: They are off in terms of location and they don't look nice from the outside.
Hope that helps!
Elegant Boutique Hotel, Classic yet Modern
We just recently stayed in an Acropolis View room and were very impressed. The room, although it faced busy Pireos St, was very quiet (with great sound insulation) and the view of the Acropolis was fantastic. We had a large balcony, and although it was winter, we couldn't resist sitting outside on the table and chairs provided.
The room was lovely, with timeless decor, a very comfortable bed and a sitting area. Very cool LCD TV with interactive entertainment.
The bathroom was decked out in dark green marble, with bathtub, and also a seperate 'wet-room' with body massager jets. Unfortunately, the water pressure wasn't strong enough for the jets to really do much, but it was still nice. The slippers provided were a nice touch (as the marble floor got a little cold), and the bathrobes were thick and warm.
The location is up-and-coming, so it can be a bit dingy, but it has some great restaurants, and is only a short walk to the Psyri neighbourhood, full of bars & cafes.
All in all, the hotel is very elegant, discreet and classy. I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again in a second.
The hotel is newly and good design furnished and equipped with lot of facilities. Kind service, very good breakfast, excellent Acropolis view from the roof garden, silent rooms. The location is good: 5 minutes walk from metro station and 10 minutes from monastiraki square.
I definitely recomend this hotel.

Get the room with acropolis view! It is really that good. You have your own private balcony, and the room's facilities are stylish and unique. Puzzling that the toilet was in the shower, but the Hermes bath products made up for this. This is a quiet, semi-affordable, nice place to stay in Athens. And the breakfast was so amazing that we have completely revamped our eating habits stateside to include fresh smoked salmon, unbelievable proscuitto, fruits, veggies, olives, olive pate, juices, etc.. You have to experience it to believe it.
MAKE SURE to guarantee your rate and your room prior to departure, as our rate ended up being MUCH more expensive than was quoted on the telephone. But, our experience ended up making that a minor detail.
We stayed with my family in this hotel in begin of August 2005.
Due to my business I travel a lot and I have stayed in almost all the hotel in Athens. To my opinion this is maybe the best hotel in the city.
It is brand new (renovated old neoclassical building), with all the facilities you can immagine and a BREATHTAKEN VIEW OF ACROPOLIS.
Very clean and very friendly with a really superb breakfast.
Great place. The hotel is brand new and full with lots of art. The rooms have everything you expect from a five star hotel. They are not the most spacious rooms, but the modern and tasteful furniture makes up for this. Soft drinks from the mini bar are for free.
The hotel is located on a very busy street. Definitely not the nicest street of Athens. However, due to a good sound insulation, you hardly hear anything even if your room is facing the street. We had an Acropolis view room and the iluminated Acropolis was really great to look at in the evenings. On top, you have plenty of good places for food and drinks within 10-15 minutes walking distance.
Breakfast is good, but service is really slow. Service in general was very friendly and helpful.
