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.

The Tailor Made Breakfast in this hotel is WOW, everything tastes so good and fresh. The products they use, the Greek yogurt, honey, fruits, and so many Healthy options, white omelet, avocado etc....but the most amazing is the view of the Acropolis while having breakfast ...it is so close. Very clean, in perfect location, with many tavernas around, the Acropolis Museum is just in the corner. The Transfer companies they use have very professional drivers and premium vehicles. Running or jogging in the morning with these views makes you wanna stay forever!!!

A top notch hotel. Rooms were spacious. Employees were always happy to give suggestions and make arrangements if we wanted. Breakfast menu is amazing. As realtors say, location, location, location. This hotel couldn't be in a better location for someone in Athens to tour. As you can read on their web page, many tourist sites are an easy walk away. Further, there are probably 15+ restaurants also within walking distance. Plus shopping. Very near to a major road to catch a hop on hop off bus. Uber rides arrive within minutes. On a very limited traffic street so quiet at night. No doubt if we return this will be our hotel choice again. From my observations, I wouldn't recommend renting a car. Uber rides are so easy although most are smaller cars so if four people one will be uncomfortable straddling the back seat middle hump.

This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed and should be ranked one of the best in terms of customer service. We booked the hotel six months ago and I haven been communicating with the front desk team in terms of our requirements, from airport transfers to restaurant bookings to you name it! Nicholas, Marisanti, and Margarita were so patient with my changes and requests. They were simply the best. Upon check in, Margarita greeted us with a warm smile and dug out the map of Athens, circled all the places of interests which was so welcomed. The team will greet you with a warm smile every mornings, and welcome you back with beaming smiles again, so warm and welcoming. In the morning, Anna at breakfast would greet you with a beaming smile, what a great gesture to welcome your guests. Our room on the 5th floor was also good, with all mod cons. Love the rain shower and the balcony, and you can just see the Acropolis! Absolutely perfect hotel, best location to almost all the sites (all walking distance, just long walks), and with perfect staff. What more do you need? Great hotel.

All of the staff members at AthensWas including the front desk, breakfast servers and cleaning crew, were friendly and helpful. We were very impressed with their hospitality. Our room was spacious and very clean. The location could not be beat. After walking around much of the city, we knew this hotel was in the best possible location so close to the entrance to the Acropolis. On the negative side, our bed was very firm and we found it uncomfortable. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay.

We stayed at the AthensWAS Design hotel for two nights earlier this week after departing a Viking cruise. This is a fantastic hotel in a great location. We were in room 502 and we had a balcony with a view of the Acropolis. The staff was so helpful from arranging our taxi back to the airport to having a breakfast box ready for us to take. They had the room ready early for us as well. The shower was one of the best I’ve ever used. The room was comfortable and had a nice full size mirror near outlets. Hair dryer was powerful. Good size closet, and while it didn’t have a dresser, there was another closet that had shelves. We were there only two nights so didn’t unpack much. The Acropolis is literally just a few minutes walk away. The hotel itself is on a pedestrian walk way. The breakfast was fantastic. One of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a hotel. I highly recommend this hotel. Everything about it was great!

My wife and I had a short wonderful hassle free 2 night stay at this boutique hotel.. The location is great central with lots of amenities and food options close by. Entrance to the Acropolis is a minute away with Plaka 5 minutes away. The hotel is in a pedestrianised street. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Margarita (who was exceptional throughout our stay) and the kind porter. They gave us small canapés and a welcome shot. It was our anniversary and they kindly arranged a bottle of alcohol and chocolate cake and a hand written note. When we advised we don't drink alcohol they exchanged for a mocktails which was lovely. There was a very small issue with the room which was resolved immediately and we were kindly upgraded us immediately to a suite. The room has full amenities with iron and ironing table dropped off for the full stay. Even for tea they kindly provided hot milk upon request. Breakfast is a la carte on the rooftop with views of the Parthenon. It was a extensive menu with freshly baked bread which was delightful. The breakfast was exceptional and the roof also retracts so in good weather its outdoors! On the first night we had mocktails in the evening which was a lovely vibe with a wonderful lady serving us. Rest of the restaurant staff were ok. The front of house service is exceptional, Margarita and the porter were truly great. We booked airport transfers through the hotel, as it was our first time in Athens, it was very reasonably priced. When we needed a taxi they went above and beyond going to the main road with us to get a convenient cab. Margarita has exceptional restaurant recommendations, noting we were vegetarian, and we had some of the best meals in Athens. She really knows her stuff and is a credit to the hotel and Athens. This hotel is highly recommended for any trip to Athens with great service and exceptional location. We had a great stay here, the service meant we didn't even feel the fact that we were there for a short time.

Our stay at the AthensWas was just lovely. They arranged for our pickup and departure and it went very smoothly. The view from our room was nothing like what we’d experienced in Santorini or Mykonos but the view from the rooftop restaurant ESSENCE was Absolutely AMAZING!! I’d emailed the day before so when we were shown to our table I was left speechless. The food was very good too. It’s a tasting menu, no ala Carte option but we did not leave the least bit hungry. The restaurant staff were all very accommodating especially the ladies at breakfast. Halls are a little dark and there was a slight glitch in our room being cleaned but it was quickly rectified when mentioned and all in all a great stay! Beautiful bathroom, helpful staff and it was hands down the Best breakfast in Greece. Great location for other restaurant options as well and we enjoyed our walk into Plaka and the gift shops and shopping along the way.

Best location, excellent dining options with coffee or dinner options downstairs, plus delicious breakfast at the top floor with views of the Acropolis. Staff is outstanding. We will be staying here again. Location is ideal for early morning Acropolis tour, walk to Olympic stadium, tons of restaurants within a block's walk. The rooms are large, showers excellent, and did I mention how great the staff is?
