Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Before my booking i read many of the reviews here and i was really surprise when i checked in. is a boutique hotel, brand new everything its smarty and is really clean. Is one of the most clean city hotel that i have stay. The area is too safe, is part of the historical center, i walk all 3 days and its next to the sub way. Its the best option since the price its very low for this hotel. The hydromassage spa shower was very relaxing when i was return to the hotel and the breakfast was full of local tastes. I really be back, thank for everything to the front office. For couples its an ideal solution due to the glass bathrooms.

Not only big, clean and bright but also quiet, luxury and convenient room. We stayed three nights at the hotel Vitruvius and what we enjoyed most was the breakfast service which we had at the balcony of our room. It is unique experience to eat your meal having such a great view from your balcony. We have to add that around the hotel there are wonderful places to eat or have a drink.

I booked this hotel two days before arrival (didn't want to risk with the the changing travel rules), and was impressed by the reviews on here, with a stay only the previous month. I turned up at the hotel and it was closed, shutters down, months of mail on the floor, a mountain of dust, it looked like it had been closed for months, despite the reviews only a month previous. That and it was in a rather dubious area. I rang the number provided and it just rang out (you could hear it through the window). Thankfully I managed to re-arrange at short notice. So a poor show from Vitruvius!

A smart hotel needs humans too
Vitruvius hotel is the first so-called Smart hotel I have ever stayed in but I am not sure it is actually as Smart as it thinks it is. Before the criticism, I must say the two ladies who seemed on their own responsible for running the hotel between them were amazing - always helpful and friendly and even organised me a birthday bottle of wine. The rooms were also nice with surprisingly and possibly unnecessarily huge bathrooms and amazing showers. But here’s the problem- How can a hotel with 6 floors and presumably at least dozens of rooms and customers survive and provide adequate service and maintenance with just one person. When I arrived at the tiny reception, the first problem was that the Smart key to my room did not work. No one could fix it so I had to use the hotel’s only non-Smart key and annoyingly leave it with reception every time I went out.
The rooms advertised Netflix in their Smart repertoire but no sign of it. Nobody to fix it. The Smart bathroom light which comes on when you enter stopped working.. Again throughout the whole of my 4 night stay no one could fix it. A hotel - Smart or not so smart - should have an on call team of people able to fix things for paying customers 24 hours a day or it’s just not fit for purpose.
Also you must appreciate that this hotel does not have other facilities like a restaurant or bar. It is basically just a room and breakfast - which was advertised as an English breakfast but was actually a range of pastries with coffee and juice. And although it is called Vitruvius Smart Hotel and Spa - I saw no sign of a spa.
Also if you’re concerned about security it may not be the place for you. When the staff warn you about the drug dealers round the corner you know you are not in Athens equivalent of Kensington. The views were also not great.
But I do repeat the ridiculously few staff the hotel had were wonderful - Vitruvius just needs more of them.

Awful location in seedy part of the city, no views, overlooked by apartments, no bar or spa facilities, no swimming pool as described nor coffee machine, hairdryer, bathrobe, slippers etc etc all as described on booking.com website. The only good thing was the male receptionist who was very polite whilst the female manager was very rude

Yes beautiful room brand new renovations however in a very horrible location we only stayed for two nights would not go back I would give it a fair at best....

Also be very careful as the showers and bathroom are all one so water leaks out into the living area and with the granite floors being wet it’s like walking on ice almost slipped a few times be very cautious

Conveniently placed near Metaxourgio Square, this is a new hotel which we were advised had only been opened a month when we checked in (June ’19) An interesting comment when we booked the hotel in Feb ’19 with booking.com. The room we had was great, modern, spacious, and very clean, the bathroom was equally spacious with glass walls into the room, very modern and fully functioning shower with good water pressure. We did not eat in the hotel and saw no facilities for doing such but there is lots of cafe’s in Metaxourgio Square so it was not an issue.
There was nothing you could fault the hotel for internally but, there is always a but, the location is poor. It's about 200m from the square behind the Wyndham Hotel down a narrow street which is in dire need of some roadworks. The area appears to be mainly occupied by displaced persons possible from the conflicts in the Gulf region so of an evening there are large groups on men congregating on the pavement and corners, talking, smoking , etc. With poor street lighting, poor roads and pavements and large groups of men it is somewhat intimidating. I will stress however my wife and I were never approached, had any comments made or felt threatened, in fact when you said “excuse me” the groups of men parted and let you through unhindered. The other downside to these groups of men is as late as 4am you could occasionally hear raised voices and cars revving engines, thats despite the hotel room windows being closed. I don't consider my self a light sleeper but of the 4 nights we stopped I was woken up on three of them

I am surprised how someone can destroy very well done rooms and facilities with stupid toilet design with glass wall!!! We were with kids and it was not possible to use toilet/shower without the other leave the room:-(. I bought glue tape and use sheet and put it over the glass wall as they don’t have curtain on glass wall:-(. Restoran is not walking during day/night and the area is full of strange young people walking around and visiting prostitutes in brothels

This was the first hotel off the plane coming into Athens. No spa. No restaurant as advertised. Sketchy and unprofessional staff. Unorganized EVERYTHING! Heroin needles right outside the front door along with piles of broken floor tiles and other rubbish. Our first room was horrendous. We were moved to a different hotel room because nothing worked in ours. The room on the higher floor was actually very nice and looked like the website. Great views of grubby Athens. Then the shower flooded almost our entire room.... this hotel is a dump in my opinion. I think they bit off more than they could chew. Glad we only sat ayes one night.

Yes the metro station is only 2 mins away, no more than 80meters. It’s one of the convenient ways to get to the hotel, there are many other ways since the hotel is very well located and the communication can be 24 hours a day.
