Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Arethusa hotel is a "bargain" facility. Its decoration is a bit depressing but it enjoys an unparalleled location on the main square of the Parliament. From the windows in some of the hotel rooms, you can see the Acropolis in all its splendour.

    • To know

    • The hotel is perfect for small family budgets. Located on Constitution Square (also called the Syntagma Square, meaning the Parliament Square), you will be the heart of the city and will have no problem at all with exploring the area on foot.

    • Some rooms have a magnificent view onto the Acropolis. The rooms are simple but pleasant, with uninspired decor. Air conditioning is available during summer, the bathroom has a hair dryer and a shower or a bathtub and there is a television with satellite.
    • The hotel occupies a large building of nine floors. It includes 87 rooms, giving it a maximum capacity of 155 beds. The decoration is a little drab and the furniture has certainly not been changed for a while but it is still clean. Its location on Parliament Square is the hotel's most distinct advantage.
    • Despite the numerous small restaurants, which are good and cheap, in the Plaka area (a few hundred metres away, at the foot of the Acropolis), you can also dine at the hotel. Its restaurant serves buffet style in the morning, and there is an a la carte menu for lunch and dinner. The cuisine is both Greek and international.
    • The Arethusa offers very good value for money.

      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.

      Well-located in the heart of Athens and two steps from the Plaka district and the Acropolis, this hotel is primarily for small budgets. But to make your dream holiday come true, you must definitely venture out of your room and out of the hotel. Because the architecture, the furniture or the decoration will not exceed in magnificence the scenery that you have certainly come to seek in Athens. This hotel is first of all functional.

      Open since the 30s, the King George proudly sports the "Luxury Collection Hotel" label. This elegant establishment enjoys an exceptional location in the Plaka area. Unfortunately, it does not have much to offer in terms of facilities, but it is comfortable nevertheless. The hotel decor gives pride of place to various tones of beige which blend perfectly with the wooden furniture. The King George carries out regular renovations in order to keep the hotel at its best. The latest renovation work took place in 2013.

      The Electra Palace Athens is a pleasant hotel with charm. It is one of the best hotels in the Greek capital. The facilities are comfortable and the service level is very respectable. Its greatest attraction is its view over the Acropolis, under a mile's walk away. Its location in the Plaka district is also an asset - the moment you step outside of the hotel you are instantly immersed in the Greek atmosphere of the city.

      The NJV Athens Plaza is a comfortable hotel with a certain charm. Its facilities are well laid out and decorated, even though the standard guest rooms aren't to everyone's taste. Its lack of facilities is compensated by its agreement with a nearby club. Clearly the location at the heart of Athens is one of its main assets.

      Like many of the establishments in the Hilton hotel group, the Hilton Athens is very much focused on business clients.

The main building's architecture is not particularly appealing from the outside but it contains a wealth of surprises inside.

      Open since the 1960s, the Arion Resort & Spa is named after the legendary poet. Its infrastructures were updated by architect Manolis Vourekas five years after its opening. At the time, it welcomed many famous guests, such as Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, Jane Fonda, Jackie Onassis and Tony Blair. In 2004, the P. Masourides Company architecture firm and the Hirsch Bedner Associates interior design company carried out some major renovations. Their goal was to retain the establishment's classic style all while adding a touch of modernity. After it was re-opened in 2006, the Arion was welcomed into the Starwood Luxury Collection family. Today it belongs to the huge Astir Palace complex, like the Westin Athens and, in 2016, the W. The grounds extend over 74 acres on a private peninsula.
