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... More

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... More

The location is about 20 min walk to Acropolis or 4€ by taxi from Syntagma. Everyone in the staff was friendly. We had a three person room that had two normal beds and a shorter extra bed. I couldn't find any additional pillows in the room. The bath room was nice and clean. I found it strange that the minibar... More

Well located. Friendly front desk and bar. Lovely rooftop area with a view of major landmarks. It is magical at nighy. Bit disappointed as this hotel was chosen by us because breakfast was apparently included... it is not. It is an additional charge. Luckily we had budgeted for this unseen expense. The breakfast is ok. The only extra element I... More

The hotel is clean and confortable. The breakfast was ok and staff quite ok. The best item is the rooftop terrace with a nice view to Acropolis, especially by night. Location is quite central but not exactly in a very animated area - a 20 minutes walk to the main attraction. Very ok overall.

We booked this hotel as it has a great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar. We figured that it should be easy access to the centre of Athens as we had not been to Athens before. Location was OK but it was at least a 20 minute walk to the Plaka each way. This was good exercise but... More

We stayed at this 3* Hotel for 3 nights, arriving considerably earlier than check-in time on the first day. Although our room was not yet ready we were asked to take a seat in the comfortable lobby & that they would try to sort something out for us. We decided to have a coffee there & 10 minutes later we... More

From the Airport we travelled by train to Sintagma (blue line) then change lines to (red line) Singrou Fix was the closest train stop.
