I had to take one of our dogs to Athens for a Scan and a vet visit as he has spinal problems. My husband and I stayed at the Athinais Hotel around 2 years previously and when I found it was "pet friendly" I booked my dog and I in for 2 nights. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, I had a nice spacious room over looking the road, as I had requested, and Sam the dog seemed to like being there too - he loved the main road for his walks, he has never seen so much traffic!! Breakfast was obviously room service only and it was a very, very good breakfast - you could also order food from the Bistro until 12:45 and after 13:00 there was a list of nearby places which would deliver food to the hotel. All in all a very pleasant visit, although not for the best of reasons. Definitely would book again for any trips to Athens.

Typical city hotel. The location is very convinient as the it's near the centre and the bus to the airport passes right outside the hotel. The staff is friendly and the breakfast adequate. The only downsides are the bit expensive prices, especially if you compare it to hotels at the centre of Athens and the soundproof in the rooms.

The pluses well outweigh a couple minuses. If you’re new to the country, it’s very helpful to stay here because the bus (cheapest option from the airport) drops you off and pucks you up a five minute walk away. Just watched the monitor screen on the bus picked below the ceiling of the bus and just behind the driver; it flashes from English to Greek. The hotel will tell you the name of the plaza where you get off (I forgot). The staff at Athinais are all really nice and speak English as most people I met in Athens. I was really glad about the cafe in the hotel because I was about to have lunch at the plaza—it’s looks so nice and European with its outdoor seating near the fountain but DANG, about half are smoking like stream engines! I found that all over the city—this is very shocking that so many Greeks, especially those under age 50, are slowing killing themselves with this satanic addiction. Has Greece no active health ministry? (Sorry for the rant—over decades I watched first my mom and then my dad slowly but literally asphyxiate from tobacco induced emphysema.) Anyway, I then fled back across the street to the hotel’s cafe and had a great salmon lunch. Their Greek salad was unforgettable too. The crunchy breadsticks were surprisingly full of flavor. Which brings me to the breakfast which is a feature I screen first for in a hotel as it’s so convenient. The hotel has a very nice buffet breakfast. The grapefruit juice is the best I’d ever had anywhere. Sweet and no bite to it. The other reviews were spot on about the cleanliness. I liked that the floor were wood (or good wood like tiles) instead of carpet. I loved that it had a tub; many of us still enjoy baths. (If you’re one and use bath salts, bring your own as I had to hunt thru many local pharmacies to find some and they were $$$) Little peeves: in my basic room with double twin beds there was no shelf or cabinet in the bathroom to put away all my girlie stuff—it’s so relaxing in a nice hotel unit to be away from my stupid clutter. Also no outlet in the bathroom for my curling iron (where does a guy with an electric shaver plug in?) There is a hair dryer on the wall but it’s fixed so you can’t get to the outlet behind it. There was a small fridge, but no microwave and also no coffee machine (I don’t drink coffee, but I’m an avid herb tea drinker so even an electric (non plastic) pot to heat water would have been so nice. Someone told me to go to the cafe, but I was waking out at all hours due to the time change and the cafe closes at 11 pm. I really missed my tea and I’m not even British. Last peeve was that I thought I wrote in my reservation a request for some kind of view which I got, the grungiest ever, and I feature with this review. Oh well, I was alone just for a conference, so if someone had to get it, better me than a honeymooning or anniversary couple, I figured. I got to see a great concert just a short walk down the street at the beautiful concert hall and I got a perfect seat for only 20 Euros. I felt safe walking back alone late at night along the well lit boulevard and saw other lone women doing the same. I often saw police in Athens, which to me was reassuring. The American Embassy is between the hotel and concert hall and is fortified like a max security prison. I watched an enormous and very loud protest at the Embassy which was shielded by a half dozen long Greek police buses as Sec of State Pompeo was there (Greeks asking for defense systems to protect themselves from the Turks) and I saw “Yankees Go Home” graffiti at the bus stop (I’m writing a week later as Turks are invading Syria and massacring civilians). A Bulgarian who lives there rolled his eyes and told me the same group protests like that regularly for any occasion. I had a fun day just strolling around the nearby shops. One day I even walked up and back from the hotel to the great Acropolis which took maybe an hour (not including the climb from the base up to the Parthenon & other ruins which was moderate). This is not for everyone, but there was plenty to see on the way. I stopped along my trek at the Christian and Byzantine Museum which was very enjoyable. I saw a few soldiers in very traditional garb marching in front of (didn’t get the name) the Greek presidential building(?). I had lunch at a vegan restaurant where I had a great Cypriot salad—so, so sorry I didn’t get the name of the small cafe! BTW if you’re a cat lover you’ll be in feline heaven as there are many cat colonies in Athens and many of the cats are friendly. They looked healthy and I read there are cat societies tending to them as well as many shops having in front food and water bowls for them as we do in CA cities for dogs on walks. So next time I go to Athens I will be sure to pack my own bath salts, a big bag of kitty treats, and I will happily book at the Athinais Hotel again.

Athinais is a very clean and very well located hotel in the center of Athens. The rooms are spacious, modern decorated and spotlessly cleaned. The lobby is spacious and comfortable and the restaurant serves tasty meals, coffees and juices. We would visited again.

The hotel is very comfortable and clean and the personnel is kind. It is placed in a central zone of the city, not far from the underground and it is easily connected to the airport (bus or underground). In the neighborhood there are nice places where for eating typical Greek food and The Opera.
