Negative Reviews


It can be noisy

Quite a few reviewers complained about the noise levels in the hotel. The Athinaikon Hotel is located on a busy street, and many guests were perturbed by the sounds of traffic late into the night. Furthermore, several previous guests noted that the walls are rather thin, and it was easy to hear conversations in the halls and neighbouring rooms.


It's run down

Previous guests reported experiencing a variety of maintenance issues including air conditioning units that did not work well or were too loud and doors that were difficult to open and shut. They also noted that many features appeared tired, like the frayed carpets, scuffed and dented walls, and worn furniture.


It's a bit of a walk to the city centre

Most guests reported that it was about a 15-minute walk from the hotel to the city centre. Several reviews noted that there were quite a few hotels that were much closer, and that would have preferred something more centrally located.
