The Dorian Inn is located about twenty minutes away from the historic district of Plaka. It is a very good three-star hotel which was built in 1974 and has been regularly renovated ever since. Considering the lack of originality of Athenian hotels in general, this one will quite surprise you.
It lies a little north of the Acropolis, about twenty minutes away by foot, beyond the touristy district of Plaka. The immediate vicinity of the hotel holds absolutely nothing of interest, but you have the advantage of being relatively close to everything.
The Dorian is a hotel that deserves its three stars. It is clean and the decoration shows a good deal of effort. The reception is warm. Ask for a room which does not overlook the noisy main street; the ones that overlook the side and rear of the building are much quieter.
The hotel is a large building of 12 floors, built in 1974, and has undergone regular renovations. You can reach all 146 rooms by way of three large elevators. The lobby is large and welcoming. The effort that has been spent on the decoration is worth noticing. The living spaces are pleasantly illuminated by the surrounding bay windows. On the roof, a bar, a restaurant and a swimming pool are open from April to October.
The rooms, with an area of about 15 m², overlook the street and are equipped with satellite TV, a free individual safe, a telephone with direct international dialling, and a bathroom that has a bathtub (in two thirds of the rooms) or a shower and a hair dryer. The decoration of the rooms is nothing exceptional - the furniture is well maintained and the beds, comfortable. Purification and cleanliness are the words for this place.
The hotel has a restaurant that serves buffet style in the morning and from a menu for lunch and dinner. The cuisine is mainly Greek and international. On the roof there is a bar and a beautiful dining room from which you can enjoy a nice view of Athens. You can find a large buffet at noon.
