What We Love

  • American buffet breakfast is included in the rate
  • Nibbling on Mediterranean-inspired snacks in the trendy, candlelit ninth-floor Air Lounge while soaking up sunset views of the Acropolis
  • Flaking out by the shaded pool with a cocktail after a hard day’s sightseeing
  • Lazing over very fresh fruit salad, hot croissants and other goodies at breakfast

What To Know

  • Up-and-coming but not quite there yet, Psiri oozes exotic atmosphere in streets packed with Arab bazaars and bizarre boutiques, but it’s best not to stray late at night
  • Fans of peace and quiet should book upper-floor rooms away from the lively street scene, especially on weekends
  • Dress code is trendy-casual, so leave the twinset and pearls at home
  • Kids are well seen to with free cribs, a special children’s menu and babysitters by arrangement
  • The pool is open year-round, but isn't heated. It's normally warm enough to swim from late March to October

Good hotel for family, good location
Reviewed 16 hours ago

We stayed family of 4 at the fresh hotel. we were concern due to the location but found it to be OK. the hotel is short walking distance to the center (it is at the center more correctly). the hotel is near the market (which is an advantage). when returning to the hotel at night, if passing next to the market then there are homeless people around. we did not find it dangerous but this is the fact (it can be avoided by taking other street). the rooms we got were excellent (we got an upgrade to 1 bed room unite + regular connected room (maybe since I am Marriott platinum member)), breakfast very good, service very good. no exceptional noise. strongly recommended

Excellent hotel great value for money

Fresh hotel is placed in very good location 10 minutes north to Monastiraki square. 3 minute walk from Omonoia metro.
Hotel facilities are new well maintained. rooms are clean but a bit narrow, every room has a small balcony with excellent bath room and high pressure hot water !
Breakfast is a must ! You will find here every thing with very high quality one of the best breakfasts I had in Europe.

The Hotel restaurant to the roof is great with excellent view.

If look for a nice clean hotel off the noise of Syntagma / Monastiraki it is an excellent pick.

BTW the metro is a pickpocket’s heaven, keep you valuables tight and locked, don’t expose your money notes any where remotely as you will be pickpocketed !!!!

Budget priced hitel with lots of special touches

Hotel was really central and within a few minutes walk of Monistariki and Syntagma. Despite being in the centre the room was very quiet and you couldnt hear any traffic. There was fruit and wine in our room on arrival as it was our anniversary and fresh water everyday. Breakfast was superb and the staff were friendly and helpful.

Great value central hotel

I've just come back from a weekend in Athens, staying at the Fresh hotel near Monastiraki.

I tend to visit Athens every year around this time and have stayed in a few different hotels in and around the city centre, within walking distance to the main attractions. Fresh hotel is located about 5-10 mins walk from the main square and the metro station at Monastiraki, with a direct train to the airport, as well as numerous restaurants, tavernas, shops in Monastiraki, Psirri, and a little further away in Plaka.

The service during my stay was excellent! Very friendly and efficient and the staff in the restaurant attentive during breakfast. The breakfast was probably my favourite part of the day. The selection of items was extensive, including lots of Greek dishes and items (I recommend the bougatsa!), as well as the continental breakfast items, e.g. eggs, cheeses, cold cuts, plus smoked salmon.

I was allocated a room on the 5th floor and it was clean and comfortable. I slept well both nights. The bathroom was fine. Toiletries by Greek brand Korres are provided. The shower was powerful and temperature easy to adjust and maintain.

It is worth mentioning that during my stay there was work being undertaken in the hotel, I think it was on the 2 and 3rd floors so there was the occasional bit of noise. Personally, it didn't bother me. This is the only reason I gave this hotel 4 "stars" instead of 5.

I would stay here again.

It’s like coming home

Yet another stay at this wonderful hotel in the centre of Athens. I can’t praise the hotel and the staff highly enough. I am greeted like a friend of the family by a courteous, friendly and professional staff. Excellent facilities, comfortable rooms and delicious breakfasts. The cosy rooftop bar is not to be missed!
Thank you Hotel Fresh!
