    Historical Traveler Reviews Stanley Hotel Athens

    Convenient location next to the Metro

    from

    I stayed at the Stanley Hotel from Oct 15-Oct 19 of 2004. The hotel was very clean and conveniently located next to the metro station. Most of the main attractions were all in walking distance (if you're up for walking about 10-20 minutes). We had a corner room and a great view of the acropolis at night.

    However, I found the staff at the front desk were unfriendly and impatient at our questions. We lost our map and asked for another one. The person at front desk was annoyed and said, "haven't I given you enough maps already?"

    I totally recommend visiting the Monastiraki Square (Flee Market) for great food and tons of shopping!!

    Want a rooftop pool in Athens?

    from

    Stanley Hotel is very good value for money. The location is good,just a 10 minute walk from Omonia Square. The metro (Metaxorourghio) is right outside the hotel and metro fares are cheap, only Euro 0.70 for most journeys.Syntagma and Plaka are just a couple of stops on the metro, which takes about 5 minutes. You could also walk if you were feeling energetic. It would take about 20 - 30 minutes.The rooms are well insulated from traffic noise. The best thing about the hotel is the rooftop bar, restaurant and swimming pool, with magnificant views over the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill. The pool opens May until October. We arrived on October 9th and were disappointed to find that the pool was due to close on 10th. However the weather was good and the pool remained open, so it made our week perfect.

    Great place to stay

    from

    Just got back from the Stanley Hotel in Athens. We absolutely loved it there. Rooms in Athens can be very smokey, but ours was great, I requested non before leaving but all hotels allow smoking.

    We had a lovely breakfast included each morning that started at 630-10:am each day. The rooms were good size and the bathrooms were fine. Very clean. The best part is everyone was so friendly and helpful and the Metro is only steps away. Actually, the best part is...most rooms (all of ours) had Acropolis views and balconies and the rooftop has a bar and pool w/views of the city of Athens, really an awesome site and a beautiful view of the Acropolis, especially at nite.

    You will really enjoy this hotel compared to many others we saw here.

    Best experience in Athens

    from

    My wife and I stayed several days at the Stanley Hotel. Have traveled to Athens many times over the last 30 years and the Stanley, by far, was the best lodging experience. Hotel has been refurbished. Rooms are commodious and clean. Staff was most friendly and helpful. Breakfast was superb and we ate on the rooftop restaurant with a stunning view of the Acropolis and Lycabettus while the sun set. The pianist played from 9 p.m. on. Meals were superb. Convenient to new subway (outside the door) Pool was open, lounge chairs available. Airconditioning worked fine. And it's far enough away from the hub-bub of the downtown. Good price

    Good price, very enjoyable stay

    from

    Excellant hotel for price, well located next to new Metro station in heart of Athens. We negotiated a very good deal by booking on the Internet and, while the hotel lacks in character, it is great from a functional view point. Also the breakfast was delicious...

    We stayed in March where the weather is not all that warm, but we know others who stayed in the warmer months where the restaurant and pool on the roof are also open.

    Enjoyable stay at Stanley

    from

    This is a very nice hotel conveniently located just steps away from Metaxourghio metro station. The staff is very friendly and helpful while the hotel is very clean. Street and traffic noise can be heard in the room during the night hours, but it is generally not a problem. If you get a good deal at Stanley, do not pass it up!

    Loved Stanley Hotel

    from

    I stayed at the Stanley for almost 6 weeks. They were wonderful - courteous, thoughtful, great food in their restaurants, and location was excellent for easy access to most tourist, art spots in the city.

    Metro station and bank are right around the corner for easy transport and $$ access. Easy walk to Syntagma Square, and shopping. Quiet rooms with all necessary amenities. A bargain compared to other hotels in Athens!

    Merely okay

    from

    I arrived a bit disoriented with a flu caught in Egypt. The man at reception apparently had asked for a voucher but I presented my passport, having got used to that in Egypt. He said in the rudest way "NO, Mr.--- NOT your Passport -- a voucher. I took out papers from my tour company. "NO, those are not it!" The tone in the voice was simply contemptuous. In fact, as I later learned, no such voucher was required and among the papers I had pulled out was a copy of a voucher sent directly to the hotel. (There was one pleasant man at the desk at a different time.) The bellhop also just seemed resentful. I was glad to leave the hotel. However, it is conveniently located. Still, I would not recommend it.

    Nice place easy access

    from

    I stayed here for 2 nights in Sep 2003.The room was very comfortable and clean. I actually got a double room for a single occupancy, which was a very good deal.Breakfeast was a good buffet, and there's a nice view of the entire city from the rooftop small pool.The hotel is located above an entrance to a metro station, which makes it very accesible from anywhere interesting in the city, the airport and Piraeus.If you get a good rate from an agent, it's good value compared to others.

    Stanley Hotel - Family Room

    from

    We had a beautiful corner room with a long balcony and a view of the Parthenon. Very quiet with the A/C on, albeit on a busy square. Nice small pool and rooftop bar. Good breakfast. Quick metro trip to Acropolis, Plaka and Monstiraki. Great deal for 120 E!

    Just couple months after the first world championship and I was off to yet another world championship in Athens, Greece. This time, we arrived early and we were able to see more sights.

    The first days were spent exploring the city and the old town.
    Then the tournament started and we were obviously stuck in the hotel.
    But it ends …

Some form of ancient mechanical device which calculated greek mathematical algorithms. We're not sure if we found the site (it was all Greek to us ) but in any case we did find a cool taverna overlooking a new excavation. Our waiter was insistent that we tried traditional Greek rooster, so as we were a bit calamaried out , we dug in. ...

    Walked through the flea market part of Placa and Amanda got a pair of leather sandals since hers that she had brought were wearing out and hurting her feet. Proceeded through some windy streets and ended up at Apollo's temple. This was a temple erected to ...

In Entrepreneurship, we discussed the entrepreneurial aspects of the sites we have visited so far. For example, the coin museum shows the growth of currency from coin to paper money.

Another building in the complex is the Erechtheion. It is located on the north of the hill of the Acropolis. It is an elaborate building in the Ionic style. On the side facing the Parthenon is the famous porch of the Caryatids. The main temple was divided into two sections, dedicated to the worship of the two ...
