Historical Traveller Reviews of Parthenon Hotel

Excellent location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Everything about the hotel was more than satisfactory: it was clean, very comfortable, and the breakfast was very good. Staff was very kind and friendly. But the best point is the location: under Acropolis, 100m to subway station, and 5 minutes walking by Plaka. Rooms were quiet. Only floor needs renovation.

Nice hotel, great staff

from Rmarten
We stayed at the Parthenon for 10 nights in December 2005. It is the second time we've stayed at this hotel and the service has gotten even better. The rooms are very functional and have been renovated in the past 2 years. The breakfast is plentiful. The staff is very friendly and helpful in all situations. The location is outstanding, being at the pedestrian street leading to the Acropolis and the Plaka. The new Metro stop less than a block away is an added convenience. I would gladly stay at this hotel again.

Loved It!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Perfect hotel to stay in Athens. As described by others very very close to the metro station Akropoli. We took the metro from the airport to Akropoli and walked 2 min to the hotel, very convenient!! A short walk takes you directly into Plaka that has all the shopping and nice cafes. Complimentary free breakfast is a nice touch though it is of mediocre quality. We invariably stuffed ourselves on eggs as you can't go wrong there :-) Just adjacent to the metro station are some good restaurants as well especially we would recommend Cafe Vitro. EXCELLENT food!! They have live music from 7PM onwards, again an additional positive.

Hotel staff was very courteous. Rooms were clean, not too big but then we didn't visit Athens to stay in a hotel :-)) An additional advantage was we had booked tours through Chat tours and they had a pickup from the hotel. On the last day, we had a flight at 8:40AM and had to leave around 6:30AM, breakfast begins at 7AM but still they allowed us have some coffee/tea and coincidently they had some breakfast setup so we had some before we left. The drive back to the airport was quick, we reached around 7AM so maybe we could have left a little later!!

We really enjoyed our stay at Parthenon. Highly recommended.

Short distance from Metro. Clean; good maid service. English well spoken. Staff very knowledgeable. Excellent, good variety breakfast
Safe area. Highly recommended.--------------

Good Hotel for Price

from deeva72
For the price we had paid for this hotel, it was a pretty good deal as it was relatively close to all of the major sites in Athens.

The hotel staff were very friendly upon arrival and very helpful. The hotel itself kind of reminded us of a hospital ward but we didn't mind. The rooms were a decent size and clean. Soundproofing was good. Breakfast in the morning was the average continental style. Overall, what made this hotel better than average, had to be the friendliness of the staff and the location.

We were within 5 minutes walking range from viewing the Acropolis, 10 minutes walk to the Temple of Zeus and 20 minute walk from the downtown shopping core. There were many shops and restaurants close by this hotel which was very convenient.

Overall, we would recommend this hotel and would stay at it again.

Good hotel, great location

from forensicsgirl
We booked our double room through Venere for 117 Euros. Since our flight was coming in after midnight, we specified late check-in. Took the X95 bus from the airport to Syntagma Square for 2.90 Euros. Then, we took a cab from Syntagma to our hotel and paid 20 Euros for a 2 minute ride. Yes, we were ripped off.

Checked-in without any problems. Staff was friendly and fluent in English. Room was clean. In the morning, there was a small issue with water pressure which would fluctuate from hot to cold. Breakfast was the standard European breakfast buffet.

Since our ferry to Crete left in the late evening, the hotel didn't have a problem with keeping our luggage after check-out. Luggage was kept in a small area in the lobby.

The hotel was located near the back entrance to the Acropolis along Dionisiou Aeropagitou. FYI - If you bring a large backpack, you'll have to enter through the main entrance. Also, if continue walking on Dionisiou Aeropagitou, you'll come to Apostolou Pavlou. Across the street is Filopapou Hill. After climbing to the top of Filopapou Hill, we took great shots of the Acropolis site. One of the hotel staff recommended Lycabettus Hill but we didn't have the time to check out his tip.

The walk from the hotel to Syntagma Square will take about 10-15 minutes along Amalias Road. No need for a cab. Then again, we did arrive late at night. And we were unfamiliar with the area at the time.

Good hotel with a great location.

from A TripAdvisor Member
All is very simple:
We had very nice and quiet room in the place near the basic sights of Athens, like Acropol and Plaka; many attractions at evening; good transportation.
The hotel has the very thoughtful personnel.
What more is neccessary?

Great Hotel and Great Location

from Goatwatcher
Very good hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Location is excellent - close to the Acropolis, Plaka and the Metro. Breakfast has something for everyone - even TEA (one for us English!). Would stay here again if we get back to Athens.

Excellent Value!

from hopatcong
Great location - very close to the Plaka and Acropolis. Wonderful breakfast, helpful staff. The room was basic but clean and well appointed. A good value for the $.


from geoffdi
We stayed at the Hotel Parthenon because of the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. There was a big medical conference in Athens and every hotel was booked out so we searched TripAdvisor for any that were available and chose the Parthenon. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the breakfast was better than other more expensive hotels on our trip , with fresh fruit to take with you for the day. It was just next to the Plaka and very handy to good restaurants and the Metro. We would definitely stay there again.

Top Local Tips for Athens

When to come Most people come to Athens in Summer. We visited December, 2006, just before Christmas. For some reason thsi is the low-low season in Athens and Greece in general. The weather was wonderful for sightseeing, highs in the 60's and there were absolutely no crowds at any of the sights. Not great beach weather, but who can complain when hotel prices are down and you have major tourist destinations practically to yourself. Frineds of ours went in July, and the temperature was in the 90's and very humid, and in their pic's there was nothings bu crowds. My advice, go in winter. Also, a general travelers rule of thumb, eat where the locals eat, not the tourist traps. Also, Greeks tend to over cook their meats, so if you don't like your steaks and chops very well done you better order something else like the Mousakas or Keftedes.

Changing of the Guard Don't rely on this happening at 11.00 Sunday. It was a good 10/15 minutes earlier when we were there and we saw lots of people arriving as it was finishing.

Taxi from airport Take a taxi, not a limo from the airport - cost is 30 Euros, very good value considering the distance.
