"Could be any Crowne Plaza in any city"
A 40 minute car ride gets you from the airport to the hotel. As this was a business trip my transport was laid on so I can't say how much a cab would be. Once inside the hotel you could be in any Crowne Plaza in any big city really. The reception staff were friendly and welcoming and the foyer/bar area was clean and very smart looking. The room itself was your standard hotel chain arrangement. Clean and well presented with comfortable beds, tea/coffee facilities and a minibar. Nothing special but then absolutely nothing to complain about either. The only gripe would be that they play piped music in the corridors 24 hours a day! It's not loud but it insinuates it's way into your room and consciousness like a bad smell. Not good when you're trying to concentrate on work. The breakfast buffet was okay. Again, standard stuff but plenty of it. Outside the hotel is - as the name suggests - Athens city centre. Plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs within walking distance. For more varied options a 20 minute cab ride (€5.50) gets you to Syntagma Square where the Greek Parliament building is located. It seems that every road around that area is crammed with small family run restaurants and bars which all offer excellent value for money. From the hotel, a two mile walk gets you to the Acropolis which is an excellent way to spend a few hours.
"Don't waste your time here!"
This hotel is badly in need of renovation. The staff is rude - a bell hop literally pushed me out of the way so he could get ahead of me on the elevator. Food for breakfast and dinner was average at best. The air conditioning doesn't run lower than 20C.
"Best service,food,room and location"
I picked up that hotel for my stay in Athens and I will visit again for sure. Great room with comfortable bed,relaxing shower and other small smart things that I really liked. Breakfast with a lot of tasty choices as the lunch and dinner menu. Reception staff was outstanding and helped me with everything i needed. Only 2 minutes from metro station. Wifi was fast and stable. And price much better than other hotels. I allready booked for my next 2 stays in Athens. Thank you Crowne Plaza Athens.
"Best location ever"
The location couldn't be better. In the center of Athens and walking distance from everything. The metro from the airport takes you just out site the hotel. As a hotel is clean and everyone is polite and helpful. I recommend it 100%
"A bit expensive!"
I got disappointed about this hotel. The price is not cheap and for that you get a hotel that needs a refurbishment urgently. The staff is very friendly but in general the stay and the food is very expensive. The neighborhood is not so bad as I imagined and it also has a metro station, convenient stores and good restaurants in a walking distance
