      Historical Traveler Reviews Marina Hotel Athens

      Not bad at all ! Very good value for Money.


      On our way to the Greek Islands my wife and I just wanted a place to crash for 2 days to have a look around Athens and didn't want to spend a lot of money. We were delightfully surprised to the extend that we also rebooked it for the one night on the way back home.

      We did a search on hotels and found the Hotel Marina to be a good value. Although there were mixed reviews on it, we didn't want to pay a lot and took our chances. When we arrived at the hotel, we were pleased to see that the reception looks exactly as it does in the pictures, small yet very clean. The receptionist albeit there is only 1 was quite efficient and has us on our way to the rooms in <10 minutes. The only gripe of the hotel is the elevator, they only have 1, and it's a tiny & very old elevator. Basically there are no "doors that open automatically" it's a manual door that is trigged to be unlocked when it reaches the current floor, so it's almost like opening the door going inside letting the door shut and then opening it once you get to the floor you need to go to. The elevator can hold a maximum of 3 people, however there were not too many people staying at the hotel whilst we were there (on both occasions) so it was not a problem at all. The rooms are small, but clean and well kept. Bathroom is also small, and very clean (which is a must for my wife and I).

      As an added bonus they have a free breakfast from 7-10am which is not bad.

      Overall if you are looking for a no frills but clean hotel, well priced hotel, this is your place.

      Marinas hotel pics are fake


      marinas hotel pics are from the trully 5 star hotel king george second at syntagma square...i think is easy to understand that marina hotel can be a disaster and i have to inform travellers...fake pics and worst way of behaving to travellers..they use 5 star pics(lobby and bedrooms) from expedia and hotel marina is he bad example of b class!!!!sometimes i cant understand why these people give a bad immperssion of one of the most beautifull and hospitality countries of the world...well these happens everywhere but at last keep out!

      The worse place evr


      Seeing as my companion and I stayed at the Marina Hotel in Vulgari Street,

      Athens, just recently and we had such a very LOUSY time of it, I thought I

      would feed-back to you just why this place is such a TOTAL waste of space,

      money and effort...

      In terms of value, I have stayed in better inns in third world countries than

      this apology for a "hotel"...

      The Management is disinterested, RUDE, disobliging, ungracious and generally

      puts across the impression that "if you don't like it, lump it: what do WE

      care...? We will always have OTHER guests (read - "suckers") who will pay our

      price.. And so what if they don't come back...?? There are ALWAYS more...!!

      (read - "idiots")".

      The "breakfast" offered consisted of barely fresh bread, rock-hard boiled eggs,

      the cheapest tea-bags on the market, "TANG" as an ersatz substitute for "Fresh

      Orange Juice" (Yeah! Right!!), abysmal service (WHAT service!!??) indifferently

      cleansed cutlery and dirty tablecloths - probably re-cycled from the previous

      meals. The environment is dull, lifeless completely inhospitable and totally

      conducive to the generation of indigestion as opposed to the normal sentient

      feeling of well-being a good breakfast most usually engenders...

      The Hotel itself is situated in a labyrinthine section of byways nestled

      squarely within the "ethnic" areas of Athens - where all the indigenous flotsam

      and jetsam human imports from Asia, Africa and elsewhere congregate, clutter the

      streets, make lewd comments, solicit passers-by (when they are whores - which is

      not unusual), pester with salacious suggestions behind one's back - whilst this

      whole "street circus" creates a heavy residue of litter and trash with which to

      enlard the badly-lit streets.

      The rooms are SMALL, the bathrooms have been the witnessed home to cockroaches,

      the sheets are often stained and there is dirt in the corners ... Hot water is

      a whisper within the imagination and one's better memories and the "free soaps"

      are the size of gnats faeces - offering just about as much attractiveness as a

      medium for cleansing oneself.

      The lift is antiquated and barely functional... A three person lift services all

      the rooms and 7 floors...

      Truly a budget hotel, but clean enough.


      During March of 2005, Go-Today booked us at the Marina Hotel. While it is definitely on a side street, we (five of us) found the staff to be helpful and courteous, while at the same time, not overfriendly, as we Americans tend to be. Buffet breakfast was food to live on, not to enjoy; the lift was exactly that, not an elevator, but an old fashioned lift, where you needed to open a door on hinges to get in. Rooms were tiny, worse thing was having to keep a plastic card in a slot in order to activate the electricity. However, the rooms were clean and toilet paper was available. Soap given was a sliver, and we knew enough to take washcloths. Nice thing about Marina was that the tiny spot across the "alley" fed us when we needed feeding. There is no restaurant at that hotel, and while they did try to revamp the place, if you are not used to budget hotels, forget it. We liked the price and the location, which is surely MORE than 100 meters from the metro. (LaMirage is right across from the metro.) Your base would be Omonia Square, really in a good location for the price. I see now the price has jumped exceedingly. My advice: Get a commitment from any taxi drivers BEFORE you get in the cab. If you have a problem, ask the driver to wait while you "get change from the concierge". That's what we were advised to do by Marina staff when he found out we were charged 50 euros to get from Syntagma Square to Omonia Square, no more than 2 metro stops. By the way, I got there with only a gym duffle bag and I checked that in. Extraordinary good flight and service from Air France. (And Go-Today.)

      Dont believe the pictures


      Dont believe the pictures you see on their website. The hotel is located on an awful side street. The staff tried to con us into staying at their sister hotel claiming they had a water works problem. But we later found out that they had simply overbooked. We kicked up a fuss and manage to move to another hotel for the rest of the holiday.

      The staff were very rude and made us feel like we were the ones bothering them!! We were on a 4 day holiday and spent the entire first day sorting out accomodation!!

      Even on a budget there are better hotels in better locations for the same price.Good Luck!!

      Not bad at all


      Located about 4 blocks from the metro, half hour walking to Monastraki and the Acropolis, 20 minutes to Syntagma (3 euros for taxi) to bus stop to airport (2.90 euros E95) it's a very clean place with VERY friendly staff in a small street with parking garage if you need one around the corner, the neighborhood it's not that great but it's very safe, get the upper floors because they're is a bus stop in front of the hotel (not very loud but you can hear them like in all of Athens), typical European breakfast, I booked for 2 nights and ended up returning for five additional nights leaving my luggage stored.

      For the value it's excellent, if your used to the Hilton don't bother but if you want clean, save, nice people and spend your money on other things than expensive hotels I recommend it.

      Don't leave food in your hotel exposed at any time because in all of Athens they're are roaches.

      Nice but a couple of problems


      Be advised that you will be tricked into booking at this hotel, and they will cleaverly overbook and put you in their "sister" hotel which is a pit. I made a big stink about it was so they had to put me back in this hotel. The hotel is nice and I didnt have a problem what so ever once we actually got to stay in the actual Marina. It happened to a couple of other girls and a family.

      Like my last post, I am writing this from my flight (warning: long post); I just left Athens and I am heading back to London for a couple days before I fly back to the states on the 24th. Athens was not at all what I expected it to be. The typical pictures that people associate with Athens are crystal blue waters, pure white buildings with specks …

      Interestingly, there were no professional politicians in ancient Athens; they were pretty much drawn out of a hat. The citizens had an annual chance to kick someone out for two months; these votes were taken on broken pieces of pottery called Ostracon (this is where we get 'ostracize' from). Every senator except ...

      This trip was absolutely AMAZING I can't even describe it. This is our second trip together and it was fun, crazy, wild and full of love and long lasting memories and moments. Last year was stressful as we were going to Sinisas home country for the first time, meeting his friends and family and then going on a short trip elsewhere. ...
