The receptionists are phenomenal. They went above and beyond several times during our 5 night stay to make sure we were well taken care of and enjoying our time. The hospitality was incredible. At one point, they offered to move our room away from an incoming group of teenagers so we wouldn't be disturbed by them. 3 staff members in particular stood out - Artemis, Petraus, and Yoda (not sure if I'm spelling any of the names correctly!) Yoda in particular was very sweet and she initiated contact several times to make sure we were ok. The breakfast was good - standard fare for a European continental breakfast and some greek treats. The greek yoghurt was superb!

The hotel is in a wonderful location. Just walking distance to the Acropolis with all major Athens sights also close by (Plaka, The Acropolis Museum, Temple of Olympus Zeus, etc). The area is also totally safe. I arrived after midnight and went out for a walk around 2 in the morning and didn't feel unsafe as there is a strong police presence. Service was efficient and friendly. Although the rooms are a bit small, it was clean and modern. Truly value for your money.

Staff was most friendly and helpful - the dropping of the cent value from the bill was an appreciated gesture.

We absolutely loved the hotel from the warm reception to the wonderful service provided by the staff,especially Vicky and George in the lounge and bar. The rooms were very clean but were sparsely decorated We had a balcony overlooking a courtyard. It was quiet and allowed us to sleep soundly. The Parthenon hotel is ideally located on a quiet side street just around the corner from the Parthenon and Plaka district. Ther are many fine and reasonably priced restaurants in the area. When we left after 3 wonderful days the front desk arranged a van to take 3 couples to the Pireaus cruise terminal. We definitely recommend the hotel.

This was an excellent place to stay in Athens. Awesome location (close to all the sites and only 100 feet to metro stop), clean and comfortable, with very nice and helpful staff. Breakfast doesn't change, so a bit boring after 5 days, but quality of food good. One issue - the balcony door did not lock and the room staff kept leaving it open afte cleaning the room. There was a second storm/privacy door which did lock, but we made sure to return to the hotel every day early afternoon to lock it up after it was clean. A solid 3+ star hotel by Canadian standards.

4-star rating is not correct, possibly only 2-star. Best asset is hotel's location. Main problem is the cleanliness, especially of rooms: carpeting stained and were not vacuumed during our stay, bedspread used as blanketand seemed never washed, droppings of nesting pidgeons on the balcony, bathroom needs an overhawl. Room has an unappealing odor. All seems the result of poor operational management. Breakfast was good. The physical infrastructure is such that if remodelled it coould really be a 4-star hotel.

We stayed in Athens 3 times, each time for only 1 night so there wasn't an opportunity to use many of the hotels facilities. We only ate breakfast at the hotel and found it to be delicious. We had to leave very early on one of the mornings so they had provided cereal, fruit & coffee for us. The best thing about this hotel was the impeccable service and friendliness of the staff who really extended themselves to assist us with any requests we may have had. The street is a little worse for wear but the hotel is only about 20 metres from the pedestrian area of the Plaka where there is a plethera of restaurants, bars & shops that seem to be open all night. Of course there is the Parthenon too which doesn't seem real as it sits overlooking the Plaka. This hotel is in a great location and I would thoroughly recommend it as a great 3-4 star hotel.

Very good hotel with personal so much competent. The location is fantastic to visit the major sites in Athens. Breakfast wonderful. Things that wasn´t good : -the first hotel in Athens that I´ve have seen that put a price for keeps your luggage when you go to islands and returns later to the same hotel. -If you have a room near to the sign with the name of the hotel, the lights from it cames inside your room. - the water on the bath varies cold and hot. Nothing of this is very important front of the hotel´s goods and the competence of the employers. I recommend this hotel and I´ll return there so many times as I´ll been in Athens

By far the worst 4* hotel I have stayed at in Athens. The decoration was cheap and nasty and everything was badly maintained. Most 3* hotels I have stayed at recently were far better! The quality of the breakfast was very poor and, while the male staff were polite and helpful, the female staff, especially the receptionist that greeted me, were abrupt and impolite. The only "positive" is its location, but then there are many much better hotels near by in the Plaka area. I definitely do not recommend this hotel and for the price I paid (126 euros for a Friday evening) one can definitely find better.

The employes of the Hotel were so positive, upbeat and wanting to help you in any way they could. Our trip was 21 nights out. The nights we spent with this hotel were the best of the whole trip. We are so glad we selected the Parthenon. Thanks to everyone for making our stay so pleasant

Hotel Parthenon is in a perfect location but on a side street so is quiet. It's 200 metres from the Acropolis metro station where you can easily get the metro to the airport. Staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We had a group of 3. The room was spacious enough to accommodate us. The hotel is situated in the Plaka area. Really nice area. Just a minutes away from the Acropolis. Also, it is situated very close to Ermou Street which is a huge shopping street (about a 10 min brisk walk from hotel). Breakfast was just fabulous. Probably the best that we had after travelling around France, Switzerland and Italy. Would highly recommend for anyone to stay there.

Like most European hotels, this one is not up to American standards. However, it's very good for a European hotel. And whatever drawbacks it had are outweighed by an excellent, helpful staff.

We were here two different nights, and we had two different rooms, both were nice, clean and quiet. The breakfast was great!!! and the staff amazing! The location is really convenient: on a small quiet street, 2 min walk to the Metro and close to the center of Athens. Highly recommended!!!

The hotel is perfectly situated reght next to the Acropolis and the brand new archeological museum in Athens. A few minutes walk to the main entrance. It is also very close to an area full of shops and bars and restaurants. An excellent location.

Our stay in Athens, and our two nites at the Parthenon, were part of our overall trip to Greece - to Crete ( 6 days), Santorini (4 days), Athens (2 other days), bus tour (2 days to Delphi and Meteora), and finally the last 2 days at Athens at this hotel. Thus we particulalry liked the Pathenon's location at the edge of the Plaka district, near Metro station, and a close walk to a number of fine tourist oriented restaruaunts, and lots of shops. Plus close walking distance to the main sites of Athens. Great location, very helpful staff, and a first-class type of hotel. The full breakfast was very enjoyable, with scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon - plus lots of fruit, juice, cereals. Thus you can pay a little more to be near the Plaka area, and you get more if you stay at the Parthenon. Make sure you take a stroll around the general Acropolis neighbourhood in the evening, so you get to see the hilltop setting from a number of views or angles! Finally, the Acropolis site is still undergoing a fair bit of reconstruction as of summer 2008. (See photo).

I was really impressed with Hotel Parthenon. The location to the Acropolis and the Plaka was great. We felt safe walking back to our hotel at nite because of the amount of tourists around. The staff was very courteous and extremely helpful. Prior to our arrival I e-mailed regarding transportation from the airport to the hotel. The letter I received was very detailed and offered different modes of transportation including the prices so one wouldn't get ripped off by taxi. We decided to go by subway, and followed the directions sent by the hotel. They were great which made our arrival a pleasant one. I would definitely recommend Hotel Parthenon. The breakfast was great and offered many items to choose from.

The hotel location is excellent.You can walk to many tourist sites in 5 or ten munites. The metro station is also close and convenient. The receptionists were very polite and helpful. We feel, for a 4 star hotel, the room condition is a little bid old and the variety of its breakfast should be better- for example add more fresh vegetables.
