More plus than minus.

Staff friendly enough, WiFi good. Air conditioner very noisy, choice of sleeping with the sound of a tractor in the room or being cold. (Athens abnormally cold New Year 2015).

Hotelier vs Hotel.com

Posted Sep 19, 2014 on Hotels
Decent inexpensive hotel, clean rooms, modern bath w/great shower. Upon arrival tho and showing my H's dc reservation, I was told they were fully booked but if I wanted to wait till 11p, a departing guest's room would become available. Having reserved, I accepted. Next morning Hotelier did not recognize Hotels dc and insisted I pay for the room before leaving. He refused to look at my iPhone receipt as he was suspicious of internet commerce - he wanted paper. He also said my appearance displaced another guest the night before. 90 minutes later and 3 times disconnected from "24 hour" service in the US I paid again for the room. 2 days later I received an email from an accountant at Nicola apologizing for the misunderstanding and offering a refund if I provide cc info. HUGE DISCONNECT between Hotels dc and this establishment. Would stay at Nicola again but not thru Hotels dc.

Do Not Use This Hotel !

Posted Aug 11, 2013 on Hotels
this is the worst place I have ever stayed. should have taken note of the previous reviews. this hotel was dirty and located in the worse part of Athens. they tried to make us (and other guests ) pay again saying they had not received payment. they became agressive when we refused.

This is not a hotel buth a dirty space!

Posted Jun 3, 2012 on Hotels
This place can you hardly call a Hotel. The room is equiped with something as an airconditioning buth not working at all. The safe is not working (even no batteries!) The bathroom is something from 100 years ago, I even can not describe what kind of dirth is in that room. The toiletbrush ...... never cleaned and with 1 kg of .... ! I am a frequent traveller and this is the worst thing I ever have seen in my live. I can recommend to everybody to stay away from that place. By the way: all te rooms

Hotel Nicola - Good Value and Service

Posted Jun 14, 2011 on Hotels
The Hotel Nicola is a straightforward, good value European-style hotel. I stayed there with my girlfriend for two nights. The room was entirely satisfactory: comfortable beds, working AC, balcony, TV, hot water in the showers (not always a sure thing in Greece). The hotel isn't particularly close to central Athens -- 15-20 minute walk plus two stops on the subway -- but that's why it's cheap. The staff recommended a local restaurant just a couple of blocks away and it was one of the best places we went in Athens. The park across the main street is also really pleasant, nice for walking and fills up with families and kids playing soccer in the evenings. The included breakfast was ample and tasty. Minor complaints: The safe in the room didn't work, and the free WiFi didn't reach up to the fourth floor where our room was. The hotel's a little hard to find, and there's a tree growing in front of the sign that makes it harder.

Good value for a budget weekend break

Posted Aug 29, 2010
We spent one night in the Nicola to attend a football match in Athens. The hotel had all the basics that we were looking for and we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Don't be intimidated by the hotel's narrow backstreet location, it's a 5 Euro taxi ride from the main Syntagma square which connects you by Metro to almost everywhere in the city. If you're looking for an inexpensive hotel with all the basics for a fast-paced city break then the Nicola is a good choice.
