A Good Choice for AthensPosted Sep 9, 2010
The hotel is located just a few blocks from the Omonia Metro station, providing quick, inexpensive transportation to just about all of metropolitan Athens, including the airport and the cruise port. The room was clean and comfortable, and included amenities such as a safe and a flat screen TV with many channels of programming, a few of which were in English. The air conditioning worked very well during the period of hot weather that Athens was experiencing during my visit. The bathroom was very spacious, well lit, and very clean. The complementary breakfast included a large variety of both hot and cold items. The hotel staff was exceptional: very friendly and accommodating, and they provided excellent dining and sightseeing recommendations. I would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Terrible hotel!!!Posted Jun 23, 2010
The customer service is the only thing that was good at this hotel! But if you are looking for cleanliness, comfort and quiet, DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!! The room was filthy - including toothpaste on the walls in bathroom etc! Bathtub and sink had not been thoroughly cleaned or disinfected properly. Sheets were not changed. When housekeeping cleaned the rooms, the dusting was not even done. I believe the only thing they did when cleaning the rooms was change the towels and wash the floor. We were in 3 different rooms and the air conditioning did not work properly in all 3 rooms! After 4 hours of having it on high, it was still 28 degrees! They served breakfast and it too, was terrible! You can't expect too much from a continental breakfast but what they served was substandard! The bed was a kingsize boxspring on the floor with a queensize mattress on top! There were no extra pillows or blankets for us in all 3 rooms. The people at the front desk tried very hard to keep us comfortable and satisfied but they did not have much to work with. On a positive note, the taverna across the street was excellent!!! Live Greek music on Saturday and Sundays and the Greeks danced around our table! This made our stay so much more bearable! But I would not recommend this hotel to anyone!

STAY HERE!!!Posted Mar 23, 2010
You will love staying at the AAH. The location is extremely central. Easy to access from the Airport via the Metro. The building is beautiful with its old facade but new boutique design inside. Excellent value. I will end up paying 3 x this amount in Spain for such a lovely design hotel. Very cool. Very clean. Cozy. Hot water, central heating, comfortable beds, yummy breakfast and all of that stuff that is basic but very important. But what is unbelievable at AAH is all of the lovely staff. As we were tourists on our own and interested in local advice, my friend and I asked the staff recommendations nearly daily. And these ladies (and gentlman) fell over themselves to be helpful and nice to us. They helped us organise reservations (for really lovely nights out) and transportation that was second to none My friend and I joked that we didnt know what the ladies were saying to the taxi drivers and restaurant hosts bc when we arrived we were treated like princesses. Seriously, there is no better place to stay in Athens. You will not be more comfortable, more taken care of in such a cool little boutique hotel anywhere else. And at an absolute bargain I might add. Thank you so much AAH! xoxo

Not the best areaPosted Jun 22, 2009
the hotel is located in a central location to a lot of the sights walking distance, but it is in a bad area of the city and hotel is low budget. Service was great, but would not stay there again.

Not bad!Posted Jun 8, 2007
If looking to stop over for only two nights in Athens then this is the place for you. The hotel staff were very warm and welcoming and upgraded us to a deluxe room for free. Rooms on the first and second floor are very small, so try and avoid! The location is only a 15 minute work to all the main attractions in Athens. The buffet breakfast was excellent with something to please everyone.

A Civilised OasisPosted Jun 6, 2007
We found the Art Hotel to be very smoothly run. It was very clean and the decor was both pleasant and interesting. We were warmly welcomed with complimentary coffee and biscuits, and Staff members were always ready to help. The provision of free local telephone calls, and the availability of an Internet connected laptop were two major "pluses". Breakfast was good and our room was very comfortable. The location isn't "touristy" so the immediate area may seem a bit run down. But it's only a five minute walk to the National Archaeological Museum and to all transport lines. We would certainly stay there again.
