You've got for what you pay. Cheap hotel in a zone where Athenians would not live. Area is full of drug dealers, prostitutes and very dirty. Nevertheless it seems not dangerous and we saw no problem in 5 days ; the area is near to the excellent subway and you can walk easily to the center and tourist areas. The hotel itself is ok, clean and quiet enough. No romantism might be expected. We would not recommend this hotel for a family (though we saw some in the hotel), but for a young couple or group of friends, it is ok.

Although the room offered quality for the price, there were a number of disappointments. The aircon was very noisy and difficult to control, the fridge would not go too cold, the TV did not have cable as per the description, and the towels were frayed. However if on a budget I would recommend, but not if a single woman.

STAFF Pleasant and competent. LOBBY Once you get through the 8-meter corridor from the street, the lobby is a nice surprise: spacious, well lighted, with comfortable seating and one internet terminal. ROOM Ours had a balcony to the courtyard, great mattresses (firm and flat), good shower. However, the shower curtain positioned at the edge of the pan ensured a wet floor and shower mat. Management, please move the shower-curtain rail 10 cm into the shower space and the floor should remain dry! NEIGHBORHOOD OMG! The street and the immediate surroundings are inhabited day and night by dubious characters. We were fully forewarned by comment from tourists at Venere.com. Yet, on our fist steps outside the hotel at 17:00, my mobile/cell phone was stolen from my shoulder bag before we had reached the corner of the block. (First theft in 30 years of vacationing in Greece!) Then followed a search for a pay phone to cancel the phone number with my home-country provider, a search for a police station to make a declaration, and the last three days in Greece without my phone. BREAKFAST Consists of dismal industrialized food – orange juice, cornflakes, bread, cheese cuts, meat cuts, boiled eggs, jam... the eternal problem with breakfast at entry-level hotels. (Where breakfast is optional, I eat outside (spinach pie, for example!). SAFE FOR VALUABLES No in-room safe but, for a nominal daily fee, reception provides the key to a small personal safe (there are some 30 of them) built into a closet in the lobby.

Located near the Omonia square and the subway, the hotel seems to be a good and economic choice. The neighbourhood though, is not nice. The people who hang out there make you want to return to the hotel early in the evening. The room was adequate, not very recently redecorated, but quiet and with a nice bathroom. Breakfast included. Not expensive but not a place I would return to.

It's located in a rougher area of Athens. I didn't feel that the area was that bad, but I can understand how some women may feel uncomfortable. The location is still very convenient to most things in the Athens. The metro station is an easy walk from the hotel. Will take you very close to the Acropolis and other sites. The room we had was very large with a huge balcony. That aspect was nice. The beds were not very comfortable and there were mosquitoes. The guy at the front desk was extremely short and harsh. We were very scared to approach him with any questions because he was so unfriendly. The internet there is not free, which really seems silly. 2 euro for first 30 mins or 3 euro for an hour. Around the corner from the hotel is an internet cafe, less than 1 full block away, and is 1 euro per hour with Skype and everything. Athens is in a trial test phase for public wifi, so there are certain areas where you can access free wifi with your palm/iphone/laptop.

Very nice staff. Very clean rooms and nice shower. Rooms cleaned every day and clean towels every day too. Very good breakfast to keep you going all day long. Hotel centrally situated within walking distance from the city centre and the major spots. Besides they offered us to switch rooms if we were not satisfied with ours, which was rather nice and unexpected. Some people may be put off by the surroundings that look a bit shaby but the area is quite safe even at night. I would recommend this hotel warmly.

The hotel is excellent value for money. You get a decent and spotless hotel for a reasonable price. The donwturn is the area in which the hotel is located, near Omonia Sq. The neighborhood is poor and dirty, and the the people in that area, most of the time looked dodgy. It needs to be said that we walked from Omonia sq, to the hotel at 2am in the morning, and nothing happened to us. So if you can tolerate the surroundings, the hotel is very close to the main attractions, and it's very good value for money. The rooms are not very spacious, but they are clean. The bathroom was very clean and it had a decent size. Breakfast is poor. We didn't have much contact with the staff of the hotel, but they were friendly and helpful. We couldn't pay with credit card since the machine was broken (or so they say).

The hotel was adequate. The rooms were clean but rather small and crowded. The bathroom was also cramped. The breakfast was ok but nothing special. The hotel is borderline 3 star (maybe a 2plus). The proximity to the Metro was very good but the neighborhood around the hotel is less than desireable. There was a mix-up as to whether the hotel allows pets. We booked the hotel stating that we would have a pet with us but when we checked in we were told pets were not allowed. We managed to kepp our dog with us but she had to stay in her portable the kennel for the entire stay (3 days).

The advert said that we were close to the Acropolis which was completely untrue. We were also warned by several taxi drivers that we were in a very bad area and needed to be careful. We did see numerous drug exchanges and were propositioned severaltimes whilst walking in the day. As 2 girls travelling i feel the web site should have warned us about this. Inside the hotel is nice but i wouldn't recommend it due to the area

Our overall stay at Marina was fantastic, The price of the hotel and being so close to the metro was great and if you like you can even walk to plaka at a leisurely pace in 20 minutes. The hotel was very nice to my 18 month daughter and even gave her a little toy =) Now I read some of the other reviews and some commented on the nearby surroundings of the hotel...I did not see any drug addicts or prostitutes as some quoted and honestly I think they confused them for the immigrants that live there. The immigrants were mainly from Pakistan and Arab countries and were just looking for work, nobody was begging or hassling for money. Marina was overall a great place and I would definately come back when in Athens again although the breakfast could be a little better.

It was a bit of a shock to find the hotel when we arrived, as we approached the hotel from the wrong end of the street (Zinonos ), as it turned out later. Hotel Marina is a five minute walk from Omonia square underground station. Make sure you walk down Pireos street rather than any other street nearby. The hotel is located in its side street, a rather dirty one with a bus terminal almost opposite the entrance. But for all that, the hotel is an altogether different world in the shabby surroundings. Go through the narrow entrance (once you manage to find it), and you will be in a neatly refurbished lobby. Front office staff is extremely helpful. The rooms overlook either the back yard, which is not a pleasant sight, or the noisy street (even worse a sight). Rooms may also have a view of nowhere, when you do have a window but it is covered with non-transparent wallpaper. The rooms were tiny but clean, the bathroom was fairly large compared to the size of the room. Towels were changed daily. It was apparent that the hotel has recently been refurbished. The breakfast was rather poor: undrinkable coffee, and self-service continental breakfast. All in all, this is a clean budget hotel with good public transportation. It is definitely a different experience from my first visit to Athens when I sateyed at the Astir Palace, but if you go for fairly central location, low prices, and have no high expectations, Hotel Marina is a good choice.

We liked the hotel and its service, but the surroundings were not very pleasant. It was very close to one of the main squares, but the street leading to the hotel was a bit scary. One wouldn't dare to leave the hotel at night because of groups of strangely looking guys. But the hotel inside was really fantastic, quite a shock after walking down the street. We didn't really like the location of our room with its windows facing the yard inside / well-shaped yard. Because of that we didn't have much fresh air in our room, and not even a bit of sunshine, so we couldn't say what time of day it was. The room was not very spacious, but the bathroom was big and very comfortable, although the floor was too slippery. We really appreciated the breakfast, continental one, but it made a good start to the day. Generally, it was very fine and we would recommend the place without any hesitation. The employees were very caring and extremely helpful. The room was cleaned every day and even towels were exchanged when needed.

At certain times the street activity is a little daunting but then there is a definite police presence and nothing scary happen. (The only minor drawback.) And you are a few bocks from upscale Omonia and subway and other ritzy sites. Totally crisp and clean; room sl. small but functional. We totally recommend. Folk dance group passing thru in costume at breakfast a plus.

The main drawback in the room is the shower. The floor basin doesn't fit the lateral walls, so the water leaks out from the walls to the floor and wets all pavement. A single pavement towel is not enough to dry it and this means you have to step in a wet foor all the night. A fitted box will be a good improvement (this counted for the 'cleanliness' of the room, otherwise good). The surrounding of the hotel are somewhat 'dark' and full of street commerce by immigrants. I didn´t feel unsafe in the zone, but this can cause disconfort to other travellers.

For this price one cannot really ask for more - a clean room and proper room service. If I paid pay another 10 euros a night on top of what I had, I would suggest to have a proper lift going up the floors and a more decent breakfast (eg. the orange juice is a joke). The experience somewhat resembles flying with Ryanair - you have the decent service for a cheap price, so long as you don't expect anything else (that includes having a telly in the room with the remote missing!!). The area does look a bit rundown but didn't see any problems at all in the 2 days of stay. And it's close to Omonia Station. It's a good base if you want to see a bit of what local Athenians do in their lives!

Reasonable hotel for Athens at the price. The location is not pleasant - the square is rough and a little threatening.

The quality of the room and bathroom were good, with a comfortable double bed. However there was a lightswitch in the bathroom which was pulled out of the wall with the wires exposed which I thought was very dangerous. Also the area of Athens the hotel is located in is fairly well located for the metro but is very unsavoury late at night. If you want to go out during the day and stay in at night then I would recommend this hotel. However if you plan to go out partying and then return home late at night, I wouldn't recommend it as even with four of us (including 2 men) we felt very nervous trying to walk back through these streets full of dodgy people in the late evenings (no sign of the dodgy people during the daylight hours though).

The room was clean and quiet, but it was twin beds instaed of a double bed, and when we asked for a double bed, we were told that they were smaller, and then we asked to see them anyway, there were in fact only 4 of them and they were occupied. Besides, the neighbourhood is a bit scary, even if apparently safe.

The smalest hotel room I've ever stayed in. None of the wardrobes or cupboards could be opened without moving the bed. That said, it was what I expected for the price and I was happy with overall value for money and will stay again. Clean, relaxing room and convenient location for me. The area is "interesting" but safe - far better than staying in a 'sterile' tourist area - something happening all day and all night. There is a convenience store just across the road which stocks everything, is not too expensive and opens late. Omonia square is a 3 or 4 minute walk away but check on the map - this place could be difficult to find if you've never been before and get easily disoriented. Breakfast was OK but nothing to write home about.

THE HOTEL IS IN THE NEW ZONE OF THE CITY BUT THIS IS NOT A GOOD STREET AT NIGHT PERHAPS A LITTEL DANGEROUS. THE ROOM WAS SPACIOUS BUT THEY DID NOT CLEAN THE ROMM IN 2 DAYS AND DID NOT MAKE THE BEDS¡¡¡¡ EMPLOYEES NOT VERY KIND AND YOU HAVE TO PAY THE ROOM JUST WHEN YOU ENTER IN THE HOTEL.

This is the first time I stayed in Hotel Marina. The overall comment on the hotel is positive especially privacy and cleaniness. However, the surrounding of the hotel is not so recommended. Gangs could be easily found on street very near to the hotel. The hotel is also quite far away from metro station, Omonia, for travellers with luggages and is quite difficult to locate at the first place.

Struttura spettacolare sia per rapporto qualità prezzo sia per la vicinanza a tutti i servizi!! Peccato solo per la non buona colazione e per la zona non molto bella!! ma non si può avere tutto a questa cifra!!!

The street is smelly and dirty, it is in the Indian-quarter of the city. But this is not the biggest problem. Our rooms looked at a dark wall of another house, just 2 meters from the hotel. The room is big enough, but the window is so small, so we had to turn on the lights during the day.. 'The rooms are tastefully decorated with modern furnishings and feature private balconies or terraces which enjoy city views.' - forget about this one... And the photos at the site also. It is newly renovated, that's true, but they still have problems with cleanliness, the first thing we saw in front of our door was a huge cockroach. In one word it was depressing, luckily we really just slept there... :-)

there is a stricking contrast between the quite popular not very clean near-by streets and the quite elegant lobby of the hotel. when we were walking from Omonia square we were just wondering if we had not booked the wrong hotel (our 6 year-old daughter was with us). this is a place we would definitely recommand.

General speaking, it is a good hotel, but in order to find it, you have to have a map. THe surrounding area is not that nice, but maybe not as dangerous as it is supposed to be, if you are more careful. If you are not searching for a luxious hotel, this is a good choice for you.

The MARINA is a good choice for a short stay in Athens, especially if you are transferring to a ferry in the morning as the metro is close and its on a direct line to Pirares. The area is not the best but we moved around without being bothered at all and found a splended meal choice in Theatrou Square close by. Good value for money. If you want 'swank' pay the price for it, if you want good priced comfort stay at the Marina!.

This hotel is very close to Omonia Square and was very helpful and friendly in service. It is located about a 45 min walk away from the Acropolis, and within easy walking distance of various places to eat as well as a few metro stations. I plan on returning to the Marina when I come back to visit Athens.

The hotel has some neg. reviews.....I cant see why???? I now have a place I really like @ the Best possible price. The staff even rembered my request for the same room when i returned a week later. I found that my walking from this location was as good a decision as choosing this hotel. I am also glad I discounted the reviews that were not favorable.

I trust my ratings above are fair.We would stay there again. As indicated in above ratings: the immediate surrounding area on all sides is very poor although from the top floors rear balconies the distance views are perfect. Also there seemed to be no rooms with double beds, only rooms with 2 or 3 single beds? I thank you for this reservation.

Très bien placé, nous avons passé ma femme et sa fille de 18 ans un très bon séjour (4 nuits lors des 6-7 et 13-14 février 2006 avec 2 chambres) dans cet hôtel et le seul regret que je formule est pour le parking, qui n'est pas de l'hôtel, et qu'il faut payer (20 euros pour 36 h environ) parce que les places gratuites autour de l'hôtel semblent laisser le véhicule en danger ... Le reste est vraiment bien surtout pour les chambres du niveau 7 qui semblent plus spacieuses ! Le trajet pour l'aéroport par la rocade (de l'hôtel prendre direction Corinthe/Lamia/Markopaulo) prend 50 min en fin de matinée (seul ralentissement le péage) ! Cela évite les incertitudes du centre ville et ses bouchons ... Bon voyage à tous !

Value for money is good. Hotel suited our needs, breakfast was pretty good, staff were very friendly and helpful providing us with maps and directions. Close to train station for easy access to Syntagma Sq, the Port etc. Not the main tourist area but much cheaper. Fine for the two nights we were in Athens until we hit the islands.

Hotel MARINA is "5 star" hotel in a very poor area.I was alone and sometimes I didn't feel pleasant to go back to hotel at night, but area mostly populated by hard-working emigrants and they are harmless. Hotel is very nice and clean, nice breakfast, helpful staff.

The hotel is clean enough, warm enough and comfortable enough. The price's good. Breakfast's a bit poor in both quality and quantity. Despite some comments I read in this web site I must say that the neighbourhood is not dangerous at all. The hotel is 1 minute from a main street that leads to Omonia Square in 2 more minutes. However, the neighbourhood is just typical Greek: cheap shops, bars where you can taste the real gyros for half the price than you would in the touristic areas. Its population is quite diverse: greeks, asians, north-africans... My wife and I enjoyed these lively streets both by day and night.

We are very satisfied with our choice of hotel for our stay in Athens. We wanted a hotel that suited our budget, which we got, but also experienced friendliness, competence and helpfulness of the staff. They went out of their way to help us when we extended our stay and they were fully booked. They arranged accommodation at a good quality hotel nearby and accommodates us as soo as was possible for the remainder of our stay. The hotel is within walking distance of all the major tourist attractions, bus routes and the metro. There is a very convenient supermarket - Champion Stores near Omonia square in Athina street. The area between Omonia and the hotel was not as dingy as we expected from reports we read. We never felt unsafe ot threatened, even late at night. We had a lovely stay and would surely use Hotel Marina in future. This is the second time that we used a hotel using Venere.com. We can recommend the accommodation they promote on their website.

You get what you pay for... In my case, the hotel clerk had double-assigned my room. A group of women opened the door to my surprise while I was in bed, which I'm sure startled them as well. Oh well... Bottom line is I would not stay at this property again.
