Nice hotel; 10-15 min walk from the AcropolisPosted Sep 9, 2014
The staff was very helpful in making recommendations and helping us find our way around the area. The Acropolis is only about a 10-15 min walk away and that is where you will find the majority of shops and eateries. There isn't much near the hotel beyond the on-site restaurant. The hotel is about a 10-15 walk from the nearest subway. Our room was clean with a good A/C and the complimentary breakfasts were a huge plus. A nice way to save money on a trip.

Fantastic hotel and staff, decent locationPosted Aug 19, 2014
The hotel is really quite nice. It is clean and contemporary and modern and stylish. The hotel staff was second to none. They were so friendly, accomodating, and helpful. The continental breakfast was the best we had at any hotel in all of Greece. The city center and the Acropolis is just a short walk away from the hotel. Despite the short walk, I'd say the hotel's location is least attractive aspect. It is the one attribute that keeps this hotel from being a perfect stay. The neighborhood is somewhat dingy and well smelly. However, the more modest location helps bring the price down, too, so it's a trade-off. A little bit closer to the city center but still just outside is a neighborhood called Psiri which was nicer and had a young, hip, up-and-coming sort of feel. A great area for a meal or a drink. Psiri is on the way to the city center from the Fresh Hotel also just a short walk. So, in conclusion, the Fresh Hotel was excellent, the area not ideal, but definitely fine especially because you'll be spending most of your time away from the hotel anyway.

Modern hotel, good location, some small issuesPosted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: The location is very convenient, and I really appreciated the free wi fi, which worked for my iphone and ipad.
Cons: Wi fi didn't work for my PC-laptop, and the staff couldn't figure out why. It worked fine for iphone and ipad. Breakfast room is loud.
Location: There is an inexpensive Gyro and Souvlaki stand nearby, where you can buy food to take back to your room. Helpful when the kids are tired.
We have 2 small kids, so we needed a room with 2 large beds. The executive double room came with one regular queen size bed and a queen size sofa bed that was always in the bed configuration. That worked fine for us. The location at the edge of the plaka was only about 10 minutes (walking) away from the busy part of the plaka that has many shops, flea markets, and restaurants. The immediate neighborhood of the hotel seemed like the wholesale supplies section of athens, with many food and fish markets where the restaurants and local people probably buy their supplies. It was roughly a half hour walk to the entrance to the acropolis. The design of the fresh hotels, this one included, is very modern. Staff was friendly and helpful, although they couldn't solve my internet problem for my laptop. They gave me instructions for the login screen, but I never saw that screen. Nice bar with view on the top floor.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff took care of us, providing maps, recommendations and arranging transportation back to the airport. The hotel was located within walking distance of the Acropolis and Plaka.

Excellent, Comfortable StayPosted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: The rooftop bar, restaurant and pool was a great escape from the heat of the city.
Cons: The wifi is patchy at the best of times. The lifts are very slow at peak times so take the stairs unless you have lots of luggage.
Location: The location is very convenient to Plaka, the Acropolis and Monastiraki metro.
Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Fresh Hotel Athens. The staff are friendly and helpful, carrying our luggage and making excellent restaurant recommendations. Our room on the 7th floor was very nice with a spacious bathroom and large balcony with a sunset view. We made good use of the wifi, rooftop bar and pool. Excellent stay.

Excellent experiencePosted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: Great location and lots of space
Cons: Elevators are old and really small.
Location: Excellent location near all shops , tourist attractions (Acropolis) and restaurants.
This hotel exceeded our expectations. We had a double room for our last night in Greece to visit Athens after spending 10 days on the islands. Large room with tons of counter space, comfortable bed and lots of power outlets- 2 outlets to charge our phones/iPads on each side of the bed + a couple of others near a vanity mirror to plug in my blow dryer and straightening iron. Internet worked right away without passwords and was fast! Lots or room for both suitcases along with a sofa bed. Had a complementary large bottle of water when we arrived along with a plate of delicious cherries, nice touch, Kind of strange that the bathroom counter extended into the bath/shower area but ok as long as you did not leave your stuff there. Breakfast was the best we had on our trip, fresh squeezed orange juice, eggs, bacon and coffee pot and tea pot on evert table. Walking distance to shopping, market and Plaka for all the restaurants. We took a cab to the acropolis even though it was just down the street the entrance was a good walk round a big block and would have taken too long in the 38 degree heart. Would stay there again any day!,

Friendly hotelPosted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: Swimming pool!
Cons: None - perfect place to stay.
Location: Bentsea has plenty of restaurants but best beaches are on the other side of the island. It is not far to drive and that is part of the charm of Corfu
As a deaf person I find it difficult to communicate with new people particularly in a different country. The owners were superb as were all the locals in that nothing was too much trouble. If I didn't understand then people were only too happy to repeat what was being said.
