    Superb

    Location, Location, Location. This hotel is smacked in the middle of Plaka, right under the Parthenon hill. Many shops and restaurants surround the hotel, as well as the Parthenon Museum, which is a short 5 min walk away. The hotel is in an old building, but very clean, and with double pane windows/doors, which keep the noise out of the room.

    Good

    Very convenient to the Plaka area of Athens. Much to do and see right outside the hotel and in close proximity. Friendly staff. Fairly quiet for being in such a highlypopulated area.

    Some minor inconveniences in room. Screen had holes in it and mosquitoes entered. The toilet would not shut off unless you took the top off. Some lights did not work.

    This is a family-run hotel. It is safe, staff are friendly, very competent, and very forthcoming. It's a pleasure to be there.

    good location .. right above the Acropolis train station . about 2 mins walk from it.

    lack of facilities, e.g. no hair dryer in the room. no wi-fi ..you have to go down to the lobby whenever you need to use it. toilet is very small. hardly enough for one person( i am only 5'8 and 148 p) shower , without curtain, or door , so toilet will get completely wet everytime after shower.very inconvenient. blanket look dirty .. i am not even dare to use it , so i use only the flat bad sheet to cover when i was sleeping . if you have the room located right next to the lift .. it's very noisey whenever the lift is operated. i thing the hotel is over charged for the room.

    Very good

    The location of the hotel was great for our stay & the people were friendly & helpful. Very good value for money considering how close you are to everything.

    Only thing we didnt like was the breakfast but there are plenty of other options close bye. And the bed could have been a little softer but only very minor problems.

    Very good

    The location is really great! Very close to the acropolis, to the metro and to the Plaka shops and restaurants. The staff is kind...We payed for a normal room but they gave us another room with a private balcony and the spectacular view of the acropolis!

    The negative aspects are the fornitures, not new, and the beds, a bit hard for the back! Anymway it is clean and it's a perfect hotel if you want to stay there for a short period.. And the great location and the view let you forget about all the negative aspects.

    Very good

    The only thing that Hotel Byron has going for it is its close location to the Acropolis and Plaka pedestrian walkways. Also, the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    This hotel is for students or those who just need a clean place to crash in a convenient area. Do not expect anything in the way of comfort. The beds are like a child's mattress (vinyl and stiff) and you have to put the sheeting on yourself. The towels and blankets are visibly worn and old and the shower is hand held and extremely tiny. If you are a bigger person do not expect to be able to shower here.

    View of Acropolis - awesome!

    It's basic but the view makes up for it.

    Good

    We were only there for one night, but thoroughly enjoyed the location, the balcony was excellent, it was good value for money, and fine for being a small hotel.

    the mattress was too hard, so my bak was rather stiff the next morning

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    The central location in the oldest part of the city. Making a quick return to my room for a rest or snack. Sitting on the balcony and watching the city's activity pass along the narrow road below. Being able to see the acropolis from my window and balcony.The most helpful staff at the hotel who were friendly and cheerful, assiting me with my needs.

    I cannot say "I didn't like" I would say an improvement would be, an extra shelf in the bathroom for personal items. A coat hook on the door. a small fridge would be great and a coffee make machine. Other than that I could not ask for more.

    Very good

    Incredible location. Very adequate room. Staff was ok. Location and view was amazing! I would definitely go back to this hotel if in Athens again!

    Room looked a little dicey in terms of cleanliness & service. It is small. The bed was creaky & rickety. The location & balcony made up for everything!
