Booked three different time periods for a total five nights. It was not an experience that I'd want to go through again. The rooms were very small and cramped, and none of the TV worked in the 5 different rooms that we stayed. Bathrooms are terribly small. Small is ok, but the shower stalls did not even have proper shower curtains. So, the bathrooms became a mess once you have used them. It is not a good place to stay.

Does the job

Stayed here for two nights, and was overall happy with my experience. The room was spacious and clean, and the balcony had a great view of the Acropolis. Seemed to be located in a bit of a dodgy area, but we ha did no incidents while walking around the streets. Within easy walking distance of the Archeological Museum. Popular tourist spots like the Acropolis were quite a long walk away but were doable. Overall a pleasant experience.

Good location

Posted Sep 30, 2017
Pros: Location of hotel.
Cons: Behaviour of staff.
Location: None
Good location of hotel, close of metro station and from train station, staff was unfriendly and at times rude. Breakfast was fine and worth for money. Area is just OK, not recommend to someone with family but fine if you are alone. Overall clean hotel but can be improved.

A comfortable stay

The Balasca Hotel was ideal for our 2 night stay in Athens.

The Good: It's cheap, and right by both the subway and Athens Central Railway for easy access to the airport and anywhere in the city. The Bad: WiFi didn't really work in the rooms, furniture was dingy, and calling the breakfast "horrendous" would be a compliment, although it was included in the price. You get what you pay for. Decent value for the money.

Good place for a couple of nights

If you are looking for a cheap hotel, this is the hotel for you. Very small elevator. Breakfast is good enough. 10 min walk to the archaeological museum. Costs 5 euros by taxi to Syntagma square. Being outside the central city, costs 44 euros to get to Airport. CHAT tours has pickup and dropoff, so works out great.

Needing serious improvement

Posted Jun 25, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel needs work - shower and ac barely worked, elevator too tiny, breakfast very unappetizing, with watery juice and coffee bad by any standard. Location is good, easy neighborhood walk to Museum. Staff tried.

Great view of Mt. Lycabettus

Had a nice view from the 7th floor, great street market close by, close to the archaeological museum but a difficult walk into Central Athens. Bathroom was cramped and had gnats in the shower curtain.
