Good Location. Not Really Good Everything Else.

Posted Aug 16, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: Need repairs and renovations.
Great location and that's about all Good I can say about the Arethusa Hotel. Furniture is very outdated. The facilities need renovations. Very poor breakfast. Check other hotels around Syntagma square if you need to stay in the area.

Good location. Clean.

Good location. Clean. Breakfast that was I clouded with room was not refreshed in a timely manner. People standing around waiting during busy times. Only bad part of hotel experience.

Nice hotel near the Sights

Posted Jul 18, 2017
Hotel Arethusa is an excellent hotel to be in the middle of the action but pay a reasonable rate. You are walking distance to Parliament, Acropolis, Plaka, and a pedestrian street with dozens of shops and eateries. Very pleased with the choice. The hotel staff is very helpful and friendly. The hotel itself is very clean and well kept. Typical European style.

great location with nice staff.

Posted Jul 16, 2017
Pros: Location, breakfast, air con.
Cons: Rooftop facilities with that stunning view to acropolis.
Location: Plaka, Syntagma and the national gardens are all very close and convenient.
Only regret was that the stunning rooftop space was not utilised. This should be the breakfast area and afternoon bar.

Fair price, near to main interest points

Posted Jul 8, 2017
The hotel is in the center, close to plaka, safe zone to walk around. Also, close to the metro and bus stations. The room was clean but a little noisy. Breakfast was good

Okay hotel

Posted Jun 29, 2017
Our stay wasn't anything special. Everything was just fine for the price we paid. Staff was friendly, room was comfortable enough, and the breakfast was just okay. Only complaint I had was the shower. Everytime I showered I would have to step out into a puddle of water. I kept using towels to try and clean the water up, but it was too much water. Overall it was okay. It was really close to everything.
