Best Western Plus Embassy Hotel
Ranked #106 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Reviewed 15 December 2017

Better than the average Best Western hotel, the Embassy is tucked away in a side street, but reasonably centrally located with a metro station, local shops and tavernas nearby. The hotel is neither modern nor quaintly old-fashioned, but very comfortably furnished and with all the facilities required for a short stay. The friendliness and helpfullness of the staff is noteworthy, English is spoken and check-in and check-out are quick and simple. There is no restaurant at the hotel, only a breakfast room, but the receptionist will gladly order in from a variety of local fast-food providers or direct you to a local eatery. Breakfast is more than sufficient. Rooms are well ventilated with comfortable beds, TV with a variety of international channels, free wi-fi and a well-stocked mini-bar. More than adequate for the business visitor.

I booked this hotel solely due to close distance to Megaron Athens International Conference Centre, which is just couple minutes to walk, the same to the nearest metro station. In spite of very busy street nearby, the area was very quiet and also safe (US embassy nearby). Otherwise nothing special about this hotel. Unfortunately I experienced the same problem with smell of smoke on the 5th floor, in the room and also coming from a/c, as described in other references. Staff friendly and helpful to arrange early breakfast, but needs to be aware of this problem.

Room Tip: We didn't hear the noise from the above in the room facing to the street at the 5th floor

We attended a conference in Megaro centre, so the location of hotel was very good - 6-7min walk, the subway station is very close as well. Noisy streets are over corner, especially if you ask for the room looking at the yard. The hotel's reception area pictures are truth but the room and bathroom need retouch, looking tired and worned. There are s all amenities you may need in a bathroom but towels were very old.. Breakfast is ok, nothing outstanding and definetely not 4****.. I can not get the idea why shall i need a waiter to poor coffee into my cup - i want to have more milk and less coffee.. Do they want to controll the drinks or this is a sign of courtesy in Greece - i don't know.
The staff is friendly, smiling and helpful, but they do have to catch up an English, their language knowlegde needs to be improved. Due to this reason we had an non-pleasant conversation when signed off, there was a misunderstanding between my husband and receptionist.
But the staff is trying hard to please you. So if you are not too picky and demanding, it is an all-right-hotel. 500€ for 5 days in the end of Sept. Small tiny balconies could not compensate a claustrophobic elevator, so be aware :)

Nice hotel in a good central location. Lots of options for grocery stores and restaurants. Great gelato place close by. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Arranged for an early breakfast for us on one day, due to our early pick-up for a day tour.

It's a great place to stay in athens. The area is safe and the hotel is value for money. The breakfast is great and the rooms are pretty spacious. There are
many restaurants and supermarkets in the vicinity as well.
