Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Stanley hotel is located on Karaiskaki Square, a few feet from the subway station bearing the same name. But do not expect great luxury. The air conditioning does not work very well and the windows fail to filter the incessant noise of the town, both day and night.

    • To know

    • It is located exactly 50 feet from the subway station of Karaiskaki, on Eponymous Square, also near Omonia Square in the town centre.

    • All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a magnetic key card, double-glazed windows (here, this is not really a luxury, given the traffic noise in Athens), satellite television, a balcony that overlooks Karaiskaki Square in two thirds of the rooms and a private garden in the remaining one third. The bathrooms are all equipped with a hair dryer and a bathtub or a shower (in a ratio of 50/50).
    • The building dates back to 1966 but was completely renovated between 1997 and 2001. All the 395 rooms look brand new and are housed on 9 floors. The vast hall has been recently redecorated as the two bars, one of which has a fabulous view of the Acropolis which you can enjoy while sipping a local drink. Finally, the rooftop pool is small in size but clean. Moreover, it still represents a luxury place in the capital and directly overlooks... the Acropolis.
    • The hotel has two restaurants. The main restaurant serves breakfast from an American style buffet, while lunch and dinner are offered from an international a la carte menu. A second restaurant, considerably smaller, has a more intimate atmosphere and soft lighting in the evening. It serves an a la carte menu with choices of fresh fish and meat.
    • The Stanley is a very comfortable hotel. It is also one of the few facilities in the townto have its own covered parking lot accommodating some 120 cars. A true luxury in the vicinity.

      The Grande-Bretagne is located beside the Grecotel Plaza. And, just as the Grecotel Plaza, it is a luxury hotel in a dream location: the large Parliament square where every hour you can admire the changing of the guards on duty at the gates.

      The Plaka hotel offers excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and the decoration is modest. But you can especially take advantage of being literally at the gates of the beautiful district of Plaka with its army of small restaurants and busy streets open late at night, at the foot of the Acropolis. Finally, the luxury!

      A small and unpretentious hotel, Attilos has the great advantage of being very well situated on the outskirts of the historic centre. It is perfectly suitable for tourists with small budgets that do not seek higher quality hotels.

      Here is a hotel that, as its name suggests, is rather more suitable to smaller budgets. You will not find great luxury here, and the soundproofing and the air conditioning system leave something to be desired. There is only one real advantage: you are two steps away from the Acropolis.

      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. Although the hotel is not as well located compared to its competition, it has other cards up its sleeve. Its numerous facilities allow guests the choice of a whole host of activities. 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.

      The Divani Palace Acropolis is one of the establishments in Athens that offers a high level of comfort. The hotel is charming and well set out, but it lacks personality. However, it is still a great base from which to visit the Greek capital thanks to its good location within the city. The guest rooms are comfortable but lack personality. On the other hand, the summer restaurant is a real asset: installed on the roof, it offers breathtaking views of the Acropolis.
