First, the upside: the hotel is located a 15-minute walk from the Acropolis (and New Acropolis museum). That being said, it's located in a dingier part of town with little else around. Nothing unsafe, but certainly nothing lively or interesting to write home about. The desk staff was friendly and courteous, doing the regular desk-staff stuff with aplomb (calling taxis,...

The staff are so RUDE! The A/C didn't work in our room and the lady at the front desk just said, "oh well." The bed was awful and it felt like it was on a slant. The tiny bit of sleep I did get produced heat-induced nightmares of us trying to find another hotel in Athens. The location of this...

Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. Hotel was clean and spacious. We had a balcony view of the Acropolis. Nice way to unwind after sight seeing in the heat. Roof top bar was a nice place for a drink. Staff works hard running down to get your order.

Quiet and pleasant hotel in a good price just outside the centre. There is an underground station (fix) at about 400m but taxi costs only 4 euros to take you to the centre. Much much nicer and cheaper than central ones

The hotel may not be in the most fashionable part of Athens but the helpful key staff and remarkable roof top views cannot be faulted. The rooms are a little on the small side but comfortable clean and good value for money. We asked for an upgrade to Jnr suite but hotel is so popular no chance!!! However we were...

The hotel itself is about a 10 min away from sigrou-fix metro station, but once in the system, it is easy to navigate. The hotel itself is good, with no charge for air conditioning or an added city tax upon arrival. We paid for breakfast, and it was well-prepared and worth the cost. The hotel has a roof garden with...

Terrible from the minute we got there! My fiance and I had booked 2 nights at Ilissos so we would have one full day to check out a few things in Athens before we went to the islands. On our first night we ate dinner (pizza) on the rooftop terrace/restaurant. Within hours of getting back to our room I was...

Ilissos is a comfortable and clean hotel. the staff are so helpful and friendly mainly the man in the restaurant in the evening. professional and always smiling. the only negative thing is the 10mun walk to the metro. i will certainly go again there.

The hotel is old but at first glance seems clean until you get to the room, the carpets seem to never have been washed and the bath was dirty. The staff wasn't serviceable and at sometimes plane out rude. Probably what overflowed the glass was the moment they called us at the room to ask when we were going to...
