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.

We had a superior room facing the street. Very nice room, plenty of space, very clean . Clean towel each day. the breakfast buffet each morning was very impresive with many things to taste. Only 10 meters from the Metro.

Great hotel, next to the tube station so excellent for travelling around Athens using the tube. Staff friendly, food delicious and hotel was clean. And who doesn't want a roof top pool? I wouldn't pay more to stay in a more central location. This hotel is a good find.

The Stanley hotel was of a good standard and met our needs. We stayed here for 4 nights in one room for three people. It was quite small but as we were only sleeping in the room it worked well. When we arrived we requested clean pillows as a couple were marked and these were bought up straight away. The hotel provided a cake for my friends birthday which was very nice. The breakfast had lots of options which met most people's needs. However, allergens could have been labelled more clearly and more vegan options would have been nice. We were lucky for the first few days of our stay as the breakfast room was being refurbished so we got to eat in the bar at the top of the hotel overlooking the Acropolis. The normal breakfast room was ok but a bit dark. The hotel is a very short walk to a metro station which is good for access to the main attractions. The rooftop bar and pool is a nice touch although it is quite pricey. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Overall, I would recommend staying here and I would stay again.

This hotel is worth considering. I stayed there for a few nights through April 1, 2024. The property has a solid location next to the metro and about a seven minute ride to all the action. It is true that there are homeless and some sketchy people about, but that's to be expected in an urban area. Honestly, I saw more law enforcement at the bakery right outside of the hotel doors than vagrants. So, I would stay here again. The rooms are comfortable. The shower is very small. The toilet has great flushing power. There is no AC until March 31, which was Easter for western christians. I believe there is a mandate on when the AC becomes available. The rooftop is great. The food is good and the view is one of a kind. The pool was enjoyable by the children. Cleopatra was an amazing hostess, server, and ambassador. Service overall was spotty though. You may get your food in ten minutes or an hour ten. It's like playing the lottery. Breakfast is solid. Nothing fancy, but good enough given that it's included in some rates. Overall, it's worth trying this place out. There are much better places available, but the value (i.e., price paid for what you get) is quite substantial.

Our cruise line recommended this location for us as female friends travelling together it was in a very shady area. We were even stopped by Athens Police right outside the hotel to warn us on what not to do in the area & what to look out for - OMG! I booked with Expedia & never again. Then the hotel gave us room keys for our room 653 that didnt work x2 & a room that our shower flooded the bathroom floor. I even reached out to the hotel prior to our arrival & told them there was only 2 beds required they stuck a cot in there that was nothing but in the way . The worse part was our room looked down over all the garbage bins and garbage in a back alley. The only nice thing about this hotel is the rooftop lounge & pool area as it looks towards the acropolis. Because of all of our issues the front desk manager was nice enough to give us a free buffet breki each which we were suppose to get in our Expedia Res anyway

I really liked this hotel. We were part of a G1 tour group and this was the hotel they chose for us. We stayed 3 days pre-trip and 1 day at the end of our land portion of the trip. Both times rooms were great. The metro is right there and you can easily get to anyplace in a few minutes. Very efficient metro system. There are a few bakeries close by. The rooftop pool looked wonderful (too cold to to swim for us) and the bar was great. All staff were friendly and wonderful

If it wasn’t for the rooftop bar/restaurant and courteous staff I would probably downgrade this. Stayed on two different occasions. Total three days. First two nights stayed 2nd floor facing the Shrek billboard. Traffic noise was unbearable. Yelling people cars honking and motorcycles running up and down the street. Bonus it was Disneyland with teens racing up and down the stairs until 1130pm. So don’t get a room on the street side and don’t get one near the staircase. Next stay was given a room that was handy-capable. Did not care for the open bathroom concept where your shower sprays all over the bathroom floor. You stand in a puddle to use the sink or stand on your towel. This actually happened to one of the nine members of our party. Hotel was pretty booked with travel companies taking up most of the space. Asked for and received a second room. It was located back of the hotel about the size of a walk-in closet. If you have two suitcases you will need to use the little room table for the second. Room has a balcony but only a window to get to it. The neighborhood is extremely rundown. Do not go out at night by yourself.

Dear Guest, We thank you for staying at The Stanley and taking the time to write about us on TripAdvisor. It is with regret that we learn your experience did not fully meet your expectations. With variations in room categories and sizes, with approximately 380 rooms we aim to meet the standards of all of our guests. We are pleased to know that you informed our Front Desk about the room while still at the property and that our staff immediately offered you an alternative solution. However, we feel sorry to hear that the second provided room did not satisfied you neither. Regarding the area, we would like to let you know that the hotel is located in a city that is a large metropolitan area and you may appreciate that is not something that can be controlled at by the hotel itself. You may appreciate thst The Stanley is mainly selected by guests due to its prime location, with the metro station “Metaxourgheio” being located right in front of the property. We would like to invite you again and we will be honored should you provide us with the opportunity. We are confident we will be able to redeem ourselves and surpass your expectations. Best Regards, Guest Services Department The Stanley

We arrived at night and the woman who checked us in came across as quite snotty and curt, and was not very accommodating. However, the next day I had a totally different experience with a young man at the reception who was very friendly and kind. But the first impression leaves a mark. The main plus about the hotel is the included breakfast which has lots of variety (and the setting for it, the lovely rooftop restaurant with great views if you're in a more expensive room). The location is also convenient for walking to all the main sites in Athens, and right across from a subway station, even if the neighbourhood itself is not beautiful (seems the case for much of Athens away from the touristy areas). Our standard room was average – not atmospheric or very spacious – but the main issue with it was the temperature and air circulation. It was always humid and warm (this was March, so can't imagine in the summer). We had the “AC” on but it seemed to not be fully working as we put it as low as 10 degrees and still had to sleep on top of the bedding. Felt constantly clammy and moist. There’s a balcony but too much noise outside to sleep with the door open.

A beautiful hotel in excellent location. But what made it really lovely was the customer service. It wasn’t just one member but everyone was helpful and polite. There was no fuss to any request. The food was plentiful, the rooms large and clean. It’s right near the metro but still walking distance to most of the popular attractions. I would recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Athens.

What a lovely friendly experience we had at this hotel. The hotel is clean and well equipped for all your needs. The breakfast is very varied and tasty. Not too far from the centre, metro and bus outside the hotel. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. The rooftop bar and pool are a welcome break in the evening.
