The hotel is situated close to Larissa Station and thus it was very easy to get around. Our room had a small balcony. The included breakfast was very good. The hotel offers value for money. The staff were kind and helpful. The last two nights we were disturbed by other guests making a lot of noise.

Bad tratment as soon as I got in the Hotel. The woman thought I would not pay it (you have to pay in advance) because I made "no" with the head to my friend, so she start screaming YOU HAVE TO PAY YOU HAVE TO PAY lol. However, it has nothing to do with the payment (since it was really cheap). Terrible!!! Terrible bathroom too. But considering the price...

This hotel is a very good choice, especially if you use national railway or suburban railway. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The price is so reasonable, considering that it includes breakfast. This hotel is not in the center of Athens, so there are not many places to eat or sightseeing in walking distance, but you can see the usual lives in Athens. Plus you can see Acropolis from the balcony! I really liked the scenery from the balcony. It is not so far from metro, but we would appreciate it if the site had a better map. (Well, it's not so complicated to go there, though.) The breakfast was good enough considering the price, but if they provide some fresh fruits or vegetables, I would be happier;).

We were given a double room which also had an extra single bed. The hotel is well situated near Larissa Station which is very convenient, although not a particularly nice area in itself. The room was very clean and the linen very clean and nice and there was a fridge in the room which was very useful. Our only criticism would be the lack of a glass shower door to stop water getting on the floor - also no hook on the wall for the shower head, but this seems to be a Greek thing, we see from other hotels. The breakfast is very good and generous. If you have a front room, the balcony overlooks the busy Lionissa road, so it is quite noisy if you like to have the door open at night, instead of having the air conditioner on. Altogether, we enjoyed our two nights there and felt it was good value for money.

This hotel was extremely cheap and in a central location, very short walking distance from train, bus and metro as well as the archeological museum. The room was very clean, staff very friendly and the breakfast outstanding. The decor of the rooms might be dated and and the airco a bit loud, but for the rates they charged us this as very good standard and we had a very comfortable and pleasant few nights and would certainly book again for all the above reasons.

We are young couples and stayed in a double room for one night in Hotel Balasca. The staff was nice and warmhearted (we arrived around 2am). As mentioned in the comments from other tourists, the hotel is situated in a area not so nice, so better take taxi in case of late arrival. I can't say the room was very clean and quiet, as the carpet and the bathroom seem to be lack of maintenance (they look a bit old), and the busy traffic down on the street sometimes bothers you but is well isolated by the double glazed window (or door to the balcony). And also, yes, the central air conditioner was quite noisy. The good thing is the breakfast was quite nice (with only 5 Euro extra per room), and the hotel is definately value for money. Overall we had a fine stay, with nothing really to complain as basically everything was expected. Reommended for those who want the balance between cost and comfort. If comfort and quality of facilities are your main concern, it is not a good choice.

It is in a rather questionable part of town. Also, when we visited there was no internet in the rooms or air conditioning. Both were advertised on the website. I would not recommend this hotel.

The hotel is close to the metro "Larissa" and it's easy to find. The staff is competent and ready to answer any question, from a good pub to any tourist information. There are lots of sexy shops in the surrounding area, but the area is quiet also at night (I was there on new year's Eve). The worst place of the city is Omonia square, very dangerous at night, at least you're more than 4 people. Near the hotel there is a big supermarket and a lot of bakers, really good... The hotel also offer a service: you can order pizza from partners and you can have it directly in your room. The rooms are cleaned daily. It's really a good place to stay during your trip, I recommend this hotel! :D

The location of the hotel is really great. You can reach the important places by foot. There is a metro station near the hotel and bus stops are in front of the hotel. The disadvantage of the hotel is that it is situated next to a big road, so it is very noisy. You can't leave the windows open. If you close the windows, it is not too loud but in our room there was no AC. The hotel staff was very friendly and could also inform us about opening hours of sights. Breakfast was okay - no more no less.

I can only speak for the room we had but the whole stay was marred by the very small bathroom and extremely small shower area in our room, it measured 40cm square !! We had to stand outside the shower and wash our hair, soap up and then stand on the base to rinse off ! Awful ! Plus the very noisy ancient aircon kept us awake and it was too hot to leave off. OK for a budget style holiday where you only get what you pay for .
