Family Room with four beds

I booked through a Hostel association for a room with four beds (two sets of bunkbeds in a semi-small room - room 210). Cost was 56 Euro per night (great price). Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, also multi-lingual. Breakfast was included (it was minimal, but quite adequate). Room was clean, furniture was in good condition. Bathroom was very clean, freshly tiled. Towels and linens were clean and in very good condition. Walking distance to all the important sites (we were four people in our mid-50's and were able to walk to everything we wanted to see). This is not a four star hotel (so don't expect four star quality), but it is a very good two star hotel, excellent for short stays by mature people and probably for long stays by young people.

It has just what you need

Not a modern hotel but it has just what you need if you don't want to spend much money. Small but clean rooms, with a TV and fairly comfortable beds. Small bathroom with a shower. Breakfast is ok. Friendly and helpful staff, especially receptionists who enjoy spending time talking with the guests. Free internet access. Good location, in the city center and not too far from Acropolis. Subway station nearby. There's a laundromat around the corner (nice people, too!). Just make sure they give you a receipt as soon as you pay (usually in advance), receptionists change very often and it seems they don't keep an accurate record of the people who have already paid or they simply forget.

Bed, shower & TV, and that's about it. It's only 10 min walk from the Metro, but is not in a very interesting part of town.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Aristoteles

Basic but clean

from jdmurphy
We stayed in the Aristoteles Hotel for two nights in July, 2006 at the end of a two-week family trip to Sifnos. We were six in total: three adults, two children and one toddler. We booked two triple rooms through hostelworld and got a very cheap price so we thought it was good value for money, at least.

The hotel receptionist who greeted us at night was called Stephanos, I think. He was a young guy who was spectacularly pleasant, friendly and helpful. The lobby was a jolly little place with free internet access and lots of new brown leather sofas. The lifts were totally petrifying, to me at least! One was for 2 persons max. and the other for 3.

We were given rooms at the back of the hotel so we didn't have traffic noise but there was a big gap under our door and there seemed to be lots of noise from the lifts and other guests. The hotel is really more like a hostel - maybe a bit more glamorous - and would certainly suit students or young people more than a family or a couple.

Our room was tiny and basic but it seemed to be very clean and had air-conditioning, which was included in the price. The floor was laminate wood flooring which is easier to keep clean than carpet and the beds were hard but looked pretty new.

The breakfast, as has been mentioned in other reviews was hideous but we didn't care as all we needed was some coffee and it was also included in the price.

The location seemed a bit dodgy - saw some prostitutes a few streets away - but is actually fairly handy to the newly renovated underground station at Omonia Square and the receptionist told us it was only three stops to the Acropolis. We had a great day at the Acropolis and all around Plaka and Syntagma Square and then walked back to the hotel that evening.

Ok but traffic noise

from wellardn
Like many things in athens, the hotel gives the appearance of having been renovated for the Olympics and allowed to go downhill a bit since then. For example, the hotel advertises the bar and restuarant open all day, but apparently that was only during the Olympics. On the good side we found the staff to be friendly and helpful, breakfast OK, rooms clean, and location convenient. On the downside some things just didn't work, eg some light switches, the toilet/bathroom was quite small and not always hot water, lift jammed one day etc. The worst feature though was the traffic noise. Our room on the 4th floor faced onto the street, rooms facing rear may have been bit quieter.

Overall I would return as I considered it fair value for money as a budget hotel - it is not 4 star. However if you have problems sleeping with all night traffic noise DO NOT go here.

There must be better places

from Andrea8
We stayed in a double room in early May 2006. The location is okay but it's a decent walk to the nearest metro station which is a hassle with luggage. The place is in need of refurbishment and our room was miniscule with 2 single beds pushed against opposite walls and once our suitcases were installed, there was no room to walk. The bathroom was tiny and the shower only handheld which made hairwashing difficult. The breakfast in the dining room was the usual cold boiled egg, ham and cheese, and cold toast in a cellophane packet that you tend to get in Europe. The sugary drink in lieu of fruit juice was disgusting. The room was not sound proofed and noise from the lift and corridors was annoying at times. The best we can say for it was that it was adequate, clean and the internet - when it was working - was free. The tiny lift was a bonus I suppose. The deskstaff were okay but not as wonderful as claimed elsewhere in reviews.

great value, helful staff

from sbwmp
Travellers need to remember that this is a budget hotel ,and should not expect 5 star facilities.
Our room was clean, and comfortable. Bathroom was small but there was plenty of hot water. Breakfast was good.
The reception staff were very helpful and gave very friendly advice on where to eat and how to get around.
It is quite noisy, so take earplugs if this could be a problem for you.
We stayed here twice, and would stay again.

Basic Accomodation

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at this hotel for a week in mid June 2006. The hotel is a short walk from Omonia Square and a longer walk to the main sites in Plaka. The area is ok, more locals than tourists. We stayed in a double room at the front of the hotel (a small double bed, but comfortable). The room had air conditioning and a TV. The linen did smell mouldy, as if it had not been aired properly. We had an ensuite shower room which can only be described as compact. The shower was ok but small.

If you are an independent traveller that wants cheap accomodation to use as a base then this hotel is perfect for you, as long as you don't mind not being right next to the main sites. The accomodation and breakfast is basic, as the price suggests. The breakfast was served at the table and consisted of a boiled egg, bread in a basket and pre-packed toasted bread, a slice of cheese, a slice of ham, an orange drink, jam and tea or coffee per person. Cornflakes were also available. If you want more comfort, to be nearer to the acropolis or more choice at breakfast then this is not the hotel for you.

We did not have to rely on the hotel staff for any information/wake up calls etc so cannot comment on this.

Not worth it

from kiwiturk
Rooms are basic but linen was so dirty, towels smell so bad that I used my own just incase I catch anything from using their towels! Bathrooms are so small even though cleanish, but there were cochroachs sneaking around. Service was very unpredictable, young guy there was extremely helpful in every way, some of the older guys were very grumpy and doesn't understand what hospitality means, had such a poor grasp of English that they gave me a 3am wake up call when I asked for a 3pm check out, and was very rude in dealing with me when I wanted to check out late the next day despite previous day's cheerful agreement. Area it's in is very dodgy, there were prostitutes and druggies around, not the safest for a single female travelling alone. Would not ever stay at this place, nor would I recommend it, is the worst place I have stayed in Europe.

Aristoteles Hotel

from krisztike_25
Stayed at the hotel in July 2005. The room was basic, with overused beds (very uncomfortable). Bathroom was small and the the water often came back through the sink-hole on the floor!. Be prepared that toilet paper is cannot be dropped to the toilet, it is collected in the bin. During summer A/C is a must, it is in the room but can be used only if you pay extra. The noise at night was unbelievable, there are so many cars, buses and motorcycles on the streets even at night! Could hardly sleep. Staff was ok.

Dirty, noisy, smelly, and unfriendly

from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was so noisy we hardly slept because of street noise + the receptionist arguing
with other people. The hotel was not clean and smelly. Light bulb fittings were left
open (dangerous !) without bulbs in some cases. The bath and toilet were dirty
with hair in the bath, and bad smell of urine in the toilet. Other travellers
were equally not impressed by this hotel.

On arrival for our night, we were given a 4 bunk beds room, instead of the
double-bed room booked. We pointed this out to the [night] hotel receptionist,
but he insisted all other rooms were already taken. After catching a glimpse of
his book and noticing it wasn't the case, I insisted to get our booked
double-bed room, but he refused again and again. I asked to see the manager and
he told me to come back at 10pm, which I did. No manager was there, and he asked
me to come back at 11pm. After requesting to phone the manager, he eventually
gave us a double-bed room!! The receptionist was arguing and shouting.

Also, we stayed there a week prior, as this hotel had been booked as part of a
trip to Greece. When we arrived we were told the hotel had no double-bed rooms
left, and that we had another room booked in the hotel accross the road. That hotel
was even worse, with holes and dirt in the bed sheets, and so noisy. These 2
hotel are the worse hotels i have ever been in and would never consider using
them again. Unpleasant from the very begining to the very end, noisy, smelly,
dirty.

Loud but cheap and friendly

from brendanguk
If you stay at this hotel because of it's cheap price then you shouldn't expect the lap of luxury. In fact for the price you get a good size clean room, an OK breakfast served to your table and free internet access.
However if you have a front room like I did you will have a bad nights sleep. The traffic is very loud and the doors are paper thin so you will hear your neighbours in the corridors.
The shower is about the size of a postage stamp and it's pot luck whether the water will be hot enough. I had to have a cold shower one evening during my 3 day stay -the others were hot though.
The location is a bit dingy - and a bit tricky to find- but safe despite it's rundown appearance.

If you're on a tight budget then it's fine -but bring earplugs!

The warmest welcome

from A TripAdvisor Member
It was the warmest welcome that I've received from a hotel staff ever.
Made my whole stay convenient and pleasant,clean rooms,near to everithing that I wanted to see in Athens.
I go there again.

Top Local Tips for Athens

Metro from the airport is great! Taking the metro in from the airport is a great way to get into Athens. Think a single is around 5 euros and it is very clean with loads of room for bags, suitcases etc...

The Metro is excellent as well as beautiful A weekly travelling card is only € 10 and you can use it for all sorts of transport in the city and away from the center.

eat JUST in front of the hotel, as a very nice snack -bar, with good food and price.
