Adonis Hotel enjoys a prime location in one of the finest parts of Athens, the historic district of Plaka.
Score from 656 reviews Good
The room is TOO small, giving no space for leaving even your bags.
central location but quieter than we thought at night balcony / view friendliness not far from tube being able to pay by credit card ( which can be an issue in Greece)
room a bit on the small side but perfectly adequate for one night
We liked this small and charming hotel in the heart of Athens. There are several reasons that make it very special. First of all, the breakfast on the rooftop with an amazing view of Acropolis and panoramic view of the city. Also, an extraordinary lift, which is comfortable and very funny. And, of course, the owner Mariana whose smile and pleasant manners make you feel at home and comfortable. So, Phaedra is a great choice for those seeking a cosy place in the middle of everything. Highly recommended!
Our bathroom didn't have a shower curtain.
location in the plaka,
basic facilities, bathroom didnt have window to outside which makes it very dark..
Very close to Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus. The view from the terrace to Acropolis is a must! Some staff are very very nice while some of them are just ok.
The bathroom is outside the room.
Helpful polite staff, clean rooms with a good working wifi.
Great location , right in the middle of Plaka for this nice and comfortable hotel. Great view on the Acropolis , really quiet despite the central area.
Small troubles with the air conditioner , that it was fixed rapidilly.
Fantastic location for exploring Athens by foot; within old quarter which is lovely for wandering through. Felt very safe as solo traveller in regards to both hotel and its location. Recommend for comfortable yet simple stay
I couldn't expect more for what I paid, the location is really good
The toilet being out of the room was a bit funny, the good thing was that it was only for my room
Exceptional location for touring by foot. Staff is friendly and helpful. Daily room attention by housekeeping.Dependable wake up calls. Elevator and balcony both small but sufficient for an older hotel. Air conditioning was a must and worked fine.
The mattress was mediocre and is on a wooden frame, which results in loud squeaking every time someone moves/turns in bed. The TV did not function properly the whole time we were there (4 days). Few channel options with only 2 working and these 2 were snowy and difficult to view. The English speaking channels did not work. When we advised staff, we were told they couldn't do anything about it and the "cousin" left for vacation before fixing the problem. The continental breakfast is very limited, even for a continental breakfast.
The hotel is in the perfect location for visiting Athens. The rooms were cleaned every day. The staff is amazing!! I traveled alone and stayed at this hotel for 10 nights. I loved everything about it. The view from the roof top is amazing!
Great view of acropolis from our balcony. Bed was comfy, clean and made up each day.
Love the location. Very easy to find from train station. You need directions from hotel because the street is very small and not know by locals or listed on the map. Love the balcony. Staff was friendly. Walking distance to all main sites makes this a prime location. Also, very safe area.
Extremely small room. Not a good choice if travelling with small kids. No fridge and no pool. 5 euro for breakfast not worth it.
Such a great location and fantastic staff to greet us. Not much english but made up for it in helpfulness and kindness.
Overall the hotel was good for what we payed in a great location near acropolis (with a view) it was a standard room average facilities. Elevator to rooms great for suitcases
Rooms were slightly small for even two to a room.
If convenience is what you are about this place is for you. It's tiny & the bathroom is across the hall but if you are savy in not spending for travel expenses the location can't be best!
Small room. Bathroom across the hall needing a separate key.
I had only 15 hours in Athens and booked the Phaedra hotel for its proximity to the Acropolis. I'm glad I choose the Phaedra. The location is excellent for travelers with limited time in Athens and/or on a budget. It is only a 5 minute walk to the Acropolis and is located next to shopping district. As a solo female traveler, I was concerned about the location since you read negative reviews about Athens that say it is a dangerous city. The area I stayed in was wonderful and I did not feel unsafe walking alone at night. The hotel is close to the bus and metro stations. I took the X95 from the airport for 5 Euros. The hotel is an easy walk from the X95 bus stop. Even though the bus runs 24 hours, I decided to take a taxi back to the Airport because I had to leave at 3am. The taxi to the airport cost 50 Euros. The hotel is dated but very clean. I stayed in Room 104 which has a small balcony with a view of the Acropolis. The room was small but not uncomfortable. It comes with a private bath that is across the hall. This did not bother me. The wireless connection in my room was excellent. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
The location was amazing, with a view of the Acropolis and right in the Plaka. The room was snug, as advertised, but clean and the ac worked! We appear to have given a small discount from the advertised price (I'm guessing this was because we stayed a few days) - so love the place!!
Comfortable and very quiet room with great air-conditioning.
Nothing! I have stayed here many times in the past and expect to return when in Athens again.
Great location. About a 10 minute walk from the subway which I took from the airport to save money on a taxi. A little hard to find in dark streets but still possible. Also very close to the Plaka, shops, and restaurants.
Very small rooms with communal showers which were across the hall. Somewhat made me feel like a prisoner or as if I were in a residence...not very comfortable beds/rooms and not a very nice hotel.
Great family run hotel so close to all the action
Rooms snug but very clean
Great location. Very clean. Personable staff.
The location was excellent. In the beating heart of the city. The fleamarket was outside the front door just across the square from a beautiful Byzantine church. The hotel was full of character, and the rooftop breakfast area has a jaw-dropping view of the Acropolis. But go up at night when the temples are floodlit and the air is cooler.
Our particular room didn't have a window, but it was spacious and clean and had a nice atmosphere.
The staff if very kind and helpful. The hotel location is excellent. The relation quality/price is very good.
The rooms are poorly lighted. Since it is in the very centre of Plaka, it can be quite noisy now and then (but of course you can't have everything...)
