At the airport, we cleared customs and collected our bags.
We bought a visitor train ticket that was valid for 3 days of travel to and from the airport. We also were able to use this ticket on all public transportation. We found the trains very clean and it was the best way to get around Athens. After we checked in at our hotel, Airotel Stratos …
... see the other side of the same large building. Next we headed into the public part of the Agora, and got to see many columns and other such things. The biggest treat of the whole experience was getting to see the workshops of the dig, which held what looked like thousands of broken and reconstructed jars and other ancient artifacts such as a skull and large slabs of marble with many inscriptions on them. All of these things Dr. Camp explained how they teach us much about ...

On our way to the museum we watched the changing of the guard at the Greek Parliament. This ceremony takes place every hour in front of the tomb of the unknown soldier and is very solemn but beautiful to watch. Then back to ...

Krystal had done some of Allies washing who was staying on the yacht for another week and Krystal had also decided to stay on the boat for a bit longer to have an after season party with the skippers who were sailing on Sirius for another week.

The inscriptions on the numerous and precious exhibits to the sanctuary of Athena include marble korai, bronze and clay statuettes and vases, indicating that the cult of the goddess was established as early as the Archaic period (650-480 B.C.).
The visit was one extraordinary experience despite the fact that it was an annoyingly ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Airotel Stratos Vassilikos Athens
Stayed at the Stratos Vassilikos from May 31-June 6 of this year. I know that in Europe, hotel rooms are generally smaller, and that many hotels in Athens seem to be older, so adjusted my expectations accordingly. Likewise, I'm always skeptical of the photos on a hotel's web site.
Very happy with this hotel
We stayed in this hotel based on comments in Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. The hotel was beautiful, the staff was extrememly helpful, the breakfast was lovely. It was an easy walk to the Metro and also an upscale shopping area. We would stay there again.
The Stratos Vassilikos is a wonderful and welcoming hotel in the heart of Athens. From this hotel it is easy to access museums and the metro system. The location of this hotel is perfect since it is 10 minutes from the city centre. Taxis are plentiful and the Hotel reception can always call one for you, if required. The rooms are cool in every sense of the word: the colors, textures and decor. Very sophisticated!!! The beds are comfortable. The bathroom is impeccable and fully equipped with shampoo, sewing kit, even toothpaste and manicure kit! All you can ask from a hotel you have it here! We loved our choice! We would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and family! Great for holiday or business travellers.
This hotel is an excellent choice for anyone comfortable and familiar with a large city and using public transportation. Although on the outskirts of fast paced, bustling and lively Central Athens, this hotels offers a quiet alternative to the life of the busy city. The 10 minute walk to the metro stop is easy, and in less than 10 minutes one can find themselves in the central areas of the city close to attractions and activities.
This was a beautiful Hotel with first class service. The AC was great (this was inportant to my friend) My only complaint (which isn't the hotels fault) is that is is away from the major tourist areas. It was about a 10 minute walk to the closest metro station which isn't that bad, but I was visiting in August and it got quite warm in the afternoons. I also noticed there weren't any restaurants or bars in the area that were open at night to go to. If you didn't feel like getting a cab or walking to the metro you were stuck. After a long day of sightseeing, it would have been nice to be closer to just be able to take a short walk to anything but it seem to be more of a residential area.
This hotel was simply wonderful. It was elegant, comfortable, clean, and the staff was friendly and helpful. It's not as close to the Megaro Moussikis Metro stop as it sounded, but it's not that long of a walk either. And, besides, it's worth a walk to the subway to stay at this place. Two of us stayed there for 170 Euros and it was worth every cent. What else can I say-- stay here when you go to Athens.
The Hotel: very beautiful from the outside in; from the spring colours of the lobby and dining area, to the hardwood floors of the hallways, it is a lovely, modern, well-kept hotel. We were very impressed, and actually chose to return for another night when we had an unexpected stop-over in Athens on the way to Paris.
I recently stayed at the Stratos Vassilikos when I was in Athens for the Olympics. It was perfect. The Stratos Vassilikos is a beautiful, new (opened Sept. 2003) small-to-medium sized hotel in central Athens. It is thoroughly modern and gorgeous, from the cool marble and modern desks used by the staff for check in, to the beautiful gray-stained wooden floors in the hallways to the new fitness center in the basement. The rooms are modern and comfortable. Mine had twin beds that could be pushed together European-style to create a "King." The rooms have new black lacquered desks and (most surprising) high-speed internet access. The bathroom was new and beautiful. And, most important, the air conditioning was state of the art -- making it cool enough (in Athens, in August) for any traveller, even an American like me.
