Very Bad.

My wife and I booked this hotel because it had a swimming pool and roof cafe with an amazing 360deg panoramic view of Athens which looked lovely in the photos on their web-site.When we went to the roof it was locked up, we asked at reception why? we were told it was being decorated and nobody could use it.We told them it was the only reason we booked the hotel and should get a refund only for them to just shrug their shoulders and say there is nothing they could do about it.The noise from the traffic outside was so bad, we could not sleep all night and we was very tired the next day.There was no mini-bar as advertised,no milk for the tea- maker(we were told to go to a shop up the road to buy the milk if we wanted tea).There was also no radio.Once outside the hotel we were confronted immediately by beggars who were constantly cursing you for not giving them any money.Then,we had to run the gauntlet of the drug dealers and users. Junkies with needles sticking out of their arms and snorting from the pavement.It is a very scary place to be at anytime let alone coming back late at night after a night out having dinner and a few drinks!Just by leaving the hotel you could be putting you life in danger.I must admit We did find some amusement watching the transvestites screaming at each other and arguing with the prostitutes and their pimps.Breakfast was a joke!as the eggs,bacon and sausages were cold,not even warm,and no toaster to use. YES, breakfast was a disaster! Next,two coach loads of teenage school children turned up screaming and shouting as kids do when no parent was insight.Running up and down the stairs and clogging up the lift with as many bodies as possible was the order of the day.Being a relaxing break this wasn't. Now, don't run away with the idea that we are moaning minnies, cos we're not.We have stayed in hotels in every western European country, north Africa and quite a few states in America and Canada and we have never ever found the need to warn people off of staying in such a horrible hotel as this.DO yourself a favor and stay somewhere else, old cow shed will do, at least you will have some milk...........Ooh the shower was also broken too.

I was surprised that no hot water in flask was available to mix drinks in the room despite requesting.Staff are not very hospitable though the counter staff are very diligent.The staff at the bar are friendly including the Kenyan staff.The location of the hotel is its greatest plus point.The taxi they arranged to the airport
charged 40 Euros when the meter was 28 Euros.So the argument that you will not be cheated by taxis arranged by the hotel is preposterous.The lift needs improvement.Too small for the summer crowd.The staff in the restaurents need to improve English.They do not understand the meaning of 'hot water' even after providing them a flask.I hope there is improvement in the future noting that Greece is an EU nation and popular tourist destination.
The staff were helpful.....

The location was central althrough in a very run down area. The pool was closed as was the rooftop bar. We had a very seedy room which smelt of smoke and very noisey from traffic, we had to move rooms at 2am due to the noise from a school party that had been put around us. The new room was at the back of the hotel so much less noisey and cleaner. The breakfast was good although the eggs were cold and there was never enough bacon or hot food. I feel that we were misold this hotel by the travel agent and the pictures on the website very misleading. We have stayed in many hotels all around the world and I think this rates the worst even though we have stayed in 1* accommodation and this was supposed to be 3*!
Good breakfast!

The Dorian Inn is a bit of a hike from the main attractions in Athens, though it's not too far from the metro station at Omonia. It's in a rather insalubrious area, however, which we found a bit unpleasant at night. The hotel has a rooftop pool (which we couldn't use as we stayed there during a very cold Easter week) with bar. The breakfast room is on the first floor and offers a great buffet. The menus posted daily for dinner looked uninspiring and reminded me of Greek hotel food in the 70s! Rooms are clean with minimalist, though modern decor.

Top Local Tips for Athens

get to love h20 if you go during the summer, drink LOTS of water. Also, be extra careful if you have nut allergies, since everything will be in Greek! I made sure to ask all the waiters about the contents of my food...I ate mostly croissants and gyros to be safe.

Be Aware of Your Surroundings It sounds like a simple tip, but you really must in Athens: be aware of your surroundings. Don't get caught up in the city and become an easy target. Don't travel alone, or even in groups of 2 unless you are both professional football players that can beat the crap out of a druggy who is willing to mug you.
