Excellent boutique hotel
Reviewed 5 days ago

Contemporary decor, impeccably clean and tasteful design, gorgeous rooms, 2 excellent restaurants, AND the perfect location below the Acropolis with wonderful views of the PARTHENON. The staff is friendly and enormously helpful and responsive. How is this not Trip Advisor’s #1 hotel in Athens?!

Well deserving of high marks; outstanding boutique hotel

We selected the AthensWas hotel for our pre-cruise stay based on the consistently favorable reviews here on TripAdvisor, and we were not disappointed. This small boutique hotel is located in the Plaka, and you are literally steps away from the Acropolis and the fabulous new Acropolis museum. The rooms are decorated in a modern theme, and the bath is large. There appear to be only 4-5 rooms on each floor, sharing a small common hallway. We had one of the "classic" rooms, which essentially just overlooks a rear courtyard of several neighboring buildings. The rooftop restaurant has spectacular views of the Acropolis and Parthenon, but the cuisine is Greek "modern", and a bit pricey. We just had wine and appetizers. Staff at the hotel are extremely friendly, and the reception staff are very helpful in making recommendations for dining.

What a lovely hotel!! We really enjoyed staying here. Location and area are perfect for seeing historical Athens. Walking distance to most sights and metro nearby. Hotel itself is clean, modern and the staff are friendly and always willing to help.
Check out the roof top bar/restaurant with the uninterrupted views of the Acropolis amazing.

Freindly plesant stay in Athens

This hotel is really nice - a boutique hotel with modern design and facilities - spotlessly clean and with comfortable bedding, a pleasant breakfast restaurant and ideally located close to the Acropolis Museum, the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus. The shopping district is about 10 minutes walk away, the Plaka district even less and plenty of great Greek eateries abound.
The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful - nothing was too much to do.
Highly recommended.

Great boutique hotel

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and everything was 100%, The service from arrival at reception to meals in the superb rooftop restaurant was top notch. We loved having a cocktail in the roof top bar with amazing views of the Acropolis. The friendly staff even sent us their secret cocktail ingredients when we emailed them from the Duty Free shop in Athens airport! You will not beat this location and the rooms were spacious and spotlessly clean. Would definitely stay here again.
