The hotel, breakfast and staff were all great. We had free internet service and printer in the lobby. We received the best treatment from both "Kostas" from the front desk. It is unfortunate that the area was not safe in the evenings.

I am from Rhodes island, Greece, and stayed at Pythagorion for a week in January 2011 to take a couple of exams related to a PhD scholaship. As I had to study all day, I asked for a quiet place and I was given a brand clean and quiet room in which I had an excellent stay. THE STAFF was extremely kind, from the cleaning ladies to the receptionists. THE ROOMS are all recently renovated and clean. BREAKFAST is more than decent. No salmon, caviar or exotic fruits, but everything is fresh and clean in order to start the day nicely! THE SURROUNDINGS: I focused on the fact that the hotel is in the very center of Athens and I could go anywhere on foot. The surroundings and Omonia square are not very pleasant during the night, but we should all think that this quality of services would not cost the same next to the President's Palace! Excellent relationship between price and quality (40 euros a day in January 2011). I strongly recommend it.

Very good hotel. Nice, clean and quiet. The room is not big but plenty for the two of us. Bathroom is good with bathtub. Breakfast is great as well. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We had an early flight at 6:55am and they booked the taxi for us at 4:15am. The neighborhood is not friendly with a few strange people wondering around, but nothing dangerous happend. Overall we liked this hotel and will come back again next time.

The breakfast which was highly recommended several times by other guests was o.k.. But after the 2nd morning all the same. Surrounding area a little bit frightning. Drug scene in front of Hotel and in a near side street prostitution. But Police guarding on every corner. Traffic was very loud and disturbing but due to A/C and closed windows acceptable. Nevertheless after 3 weeks on the islands where pensions and services were not all the time satisfying we felt like being in heaven...so clean...every day fresh towels...

The hotel is located close to Omonia subway; the location is easy for transportation reason. The surrounding area is questionable but again Athens is densely populated. The breakfast food is good and satisfying for half of the day. Fresh squezze OJ is definitely good. The tile floor is better than the carpet for reasons that easier to vacuum and would noticed the dust and dirt better. It is easy for the housemaid to vacuum the floor. I would recommend this hotel again and would stay in this hotel again if I would visit Athens.

The hotel itself was a pleasant surprise, we had one of the best breakfasts of our whole vacation there. But we did not venture out at night because it is a scuzzy part of Athens. It is very centrally located, about 2 blocks from the subway. No view to speak of.

The room was great, staff very helpful. Location very central. Breakfast provided whilst simple included variety (cereals, fresh fruit, cheese, yoghurt, meats, breads, coffee, tea...)and was really good - ample.I thought this was great value. Only criticism I had was that towards the end of my stay they were changing room furniture. I would have liked notice about this, but they took on board this comment. I really recommend this place.

Hotel located in a busy area and close to Underground station (3 minutes) The staff was helpfull and nice. The room was perfect for our 2 nights stay 3 persons: spacious, clean and with a relatively good phonic isolation. Breakfast was excellent with large choice and good quality. An advise: do not park your car in surrounding streets. Mine has been damaged by robbers. Better to park in a car park even if quite expensive.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again. We found the staff very friendly and helpful and most important, all the receptionists were able to speak English. We found our room very clean, including the bed linen and towels. Thumbs down for the size of the room. However, the price and location(close to transport) of the hotel outweights that! Folks, the breakfast was fabulous! We had a great time. Would recommend this hotel!

Located near by Omonia square, the hotel is very convenient to get on subway, to shop or to eat out. National archeology museum is walking distance, you won't miss the road. The reason why I chose this hotel is free wifi, and their internet connection was very easy. I stayed different rooms, one night with bath tab, two night with shower only. Both is well above acceptable quality for me compare to the price. One tip I can give to other traveller. I walked from Larissa rail way station to this hotel, and near by larissa station, 3 guy approached me with claiming themselve as passport control. That was fun to see such traditional rip-off artist. I ignored them and walked away, and they did not follow me.

Perfectly reasonable hotel in central location and overall a good value stay. Area a little 'colourful' but we had no problems. Handy for Metro. Hotel in general a bit smoky but that's fairly typical for Greece in my experience. Wouldn't recommend for romantic break but perfectly okay as base for sightseeing.

It's on a main street but not as close to Omonia Square as expected. The street is slightly uphill towards Omonia Square, so be prepared to spend extra effort in walking towards Omonia metro station after check out unless you catch a taxi. But the street is single direction (from Omonia), so going to Omonia Square may be quite frustrating due to heavy traffic in surrounding streets. We were stuck on a coach for 15 minutes after returning from Meteora. Room decorations and facilities are not as new as Best Western Zinon Hotel which is owned by the same hotel owner.

The hotel is very convenient if you want to begin visiting the Archaelogical Museum;a few minutes' walk to get to the entrance.The personnel is nice and helpful(there was a bus/train strike in Athens, and they got me a taxi at 6.30 am for only 30 euros to the airport:in any European city I would have spent a fortune!).The only problem was that 2 days before arriving in Athens, they changed my hotel!I didn't go to the Pythagorion, but to the Best Western Museum, where I found a very small single room, instead of the spacious room I had seen during the booking on line.Yet I guess double rooms must be very comfortable.I would go back there if I had to visit Athens again.

Hard to beat for 45 € a night for a best western hotel in the center of Athens.Only downsides are that rooms are a bit cold and you cannot manage the heat from it. The broadband internet was useless for me cause they didnt specify you needed a wireless card to bring with you as I thought there would be an ethernet plug. Besides that great deal
