On arrival we were informed that the hotel had informed two months ago that there were no rooms available. When presented with our confirmation from, the desk clerk said that it wasn't his problem. We ended up staying in the Athenaeum Intercontinental at 220 euros per night vice the 64 euros we had arranged. denies any responsbility. A totally unprofessional attitude from both the Hotel Candia and

We were very pleased with the Candia. It is in a residential district, though with plenty of other hotels, and a short walk to the Metro. It is not new but obviously recently refurbished. There was construction going on in the street outside our room but the double glazing kept the room quiet enough for afternoon naps. Enormous breakfast. Free internet. The rooftop gives views of the whole city, including the Acropolis. Turn left out the hotel door, walk two short blocks and one block to the left and there is a lovely square with a Byzantine church in the center surrounded by a fenced in paved churchyard; the whole square is surrounded by tavernas with outside dining, and children play in the churchyard. Delightful, good food, very reasonable prices. We went there twice. We loved the whole experience.

Magnifique surprise lors de notre arrivée à l'hotel, qui de facade ne paye pas de mine mais une fois entrés nous avons pu nous réjouir : grand hall marbré; accès à internet, très bon accueil, ascenseur pour cet hotel de 6 étages. Les chambres ( une double) sont petites mais tout y est, la déco est recherchée et locale, la salle de bain propre et équipée d'un sèche cheveux et d'une baignoire, clim et télé grecque... Seul petit hic dans cette organisation, la clé est nécessaire pour déclencher l'électricité, pas la possibilité donc de laisser charger des appareils électriques lors de notre abscence. Mais la plus grande surprise fut sans doute la terrasse qui donne une vue imprenable sur Athènes à 360°( à voir de nuit l'Acropole illuminée) ainsi qu'une petite piscine, transat et bar ( non ouvert lors de notre passage)!!! Le petit déjeuné, compris dans le prix nous a aussi bluffé : buffé à volonté avec un large choix de produits ! Nous ne pouvons que vous recommander cet hotel, qui se trouve à seulement 3 stations de métro de synthagma et 2 d'Omonia.

Service provided: Excellent service from everyone working at the hotel, with one exception: the staff working at the front desk! Information/Photos: We might have choosen another hotel if we'd known that the roof garden and swimmingpool would be closed! Location: Great hotel for us that didn't want to stay in the very centre of the city. Close enough to walk to all important sites and a variety of local transportations nearby, if You prefer that.
