Great location

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 12, 2005

I chose to stay at the Hotel Arethusa as it was not only the cheapest hotel in the brochure I picked up, but it was more centrally located than many of the more expensive hotels.

The decor is fairly basic, but the room is clean, and has a decent amount of room for a single person. Would be OK for a couple though.

My room had a double bed, TV, fridge, coffee table, sofa chair, cupboard, chest of drawers and bathroom with small shower.

The view from my room was straight on to the back of other apartments blocks.

Breakfast was included, and served in a pleasant breakfast room.

Tours can be booked at the hotel. I had pre-arranged tours through the same company I booked the hotel through. The tours picked me up and dropped me off at the hotel.

The hotel has 2 lifts.

While the hotel and my room weren't flash, the location was ideal. There is a photo developer next door, an amazing & well-priced restaurant a few doors down, and a small supermarket about 5 minutes walk away. The closest Metro station was less than 5 minutes walk away. Otherwise, most major archaelogical sites were only a relatively short walk away. To get to some of the museums I simply caught the Metro.

In September 2005 my single room (with double bed) was AUD$104.00 = E$66.00

Unique Quality: 87 rooms, Fully air conditioned, Direct dial telephone, TV (mainly Greek and German, but German MTV has a lot of English shows), Private bathrooms with hairdryers, Most rooms with refrigarators

* 2 mins from metro/buses station
* 10 mins from Monastiraki (flea market)
* 15 mins from Acropolis
* 5 - 30 minutes from the most important museums and archeological sites

Directions: Located in the centre of Athens. Very close to Syntagma Square. Short walk to Plaka district.

Good centrally located hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Arethusa hotel is located between the Plaka, and Syntagma Square. It's simple, but clean, and we had a nice room with a view of the Acropolis. It's nothing fancy, but the location is really good, and the staff is very friendly. The rate is pretty cheap as well. 70 euros, or so.

Directions: near Plaka & Syntagma

Syntagma Square

by written on May 21, 2003

While researching for hotels selection on VT, I came across this hotel on one of the member's page. Anyhow, I checked it out while I was walking around Syntagma Square. It's one of the best located in this area & room per night is reasonable by Athens standard. As for how good the rooms are, I've no idea. Otherwise, it looks good from the outside. Not the super hotel but it has a great location. Room rate ranges from Euro 70 - 120.

Directions: Syntagma Square.

The Arethusa Hotel.

by written on August 25, 2002

At the time of my visit I paid $73.00 Cdn for a single.

Unique Quality: I found this hotel to be very statisfactory as mid-priced place to stay in the heart of Athens. It is in easy walking to distance to all the key sites. So much so that only once did I take public transportation in order to see one of Athen's sites.

Directions: One block west of the Sygdagma Square.
