Great views, amazing location
Reviewed 1 day ago

The view from the restaurant is well worth the stay. Additionally you are a 10 minute walk away from the Acropolis and from amazing restaurants and bars. On arrival I would recommend speaking to the receptionist since they will guide you in where to eat and what to do (including making reservations for you!). Amazing place would recommend.

Great location, lovely hotel
Reviewed 4 days ago

A great stay here - lovely staff, beautiful restaurant, and very good rooms. The only mistake the hotel made was recommending the Cave of the Acropolis restaurant (see other review). Apart from that, it was perfect!

Beautiful and elegant steps from Plaka

When we made this reservation it was the "last" thing we did for our Greek vacation -- we needed one night at an Athens hotel before our flights home the next day. What we got was truly a treat; the AthensWas is beautifully designed with spacious rooms elegantly appointed. The staff made us feel right at home and we enjoyed walking all around Athens that night until the wee hours of the morning -- the AthensWas is in a great location for exploring the city and taking in all that the vibrant Plaka neighborhood has to offer.

Just across the street to Acropolis
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip, but I must say its great for visiting Athens as it is just next to Acropolis.
The roof top restaurant is very good and it has a stunning view over the Acropolis. The staff is really nice. Breakfast is al la carte but very good.
My room was room had a beautiful deep balcony overlooking the Acropolis.
We were impressed with the communication during booking of our room. We ended up with the room we wanted.
The location is great for walking and with lots of restaurants in the area.

For us the perfect Athens hotel
