In Sight of the Acropolis

Unbeatable Central Location

Choosing the Central Athens Hotel puts you in the beating heart of this venerable city. It is in the Plaka area where Athenians have lived for thousands of years. Getting to Central Athens Hotel takes around 45 minutes by taxi from Athens International Airport, 30 minutes on the underground train (Metro Blue Line 3), and 30 to 60 minutes by bus (X95 to Syntagama). If you're arriving in Athens by boat, the Central Athens Hotel is around 30 minutes from Pireaus Port, though allow longer on Fridays and Sundays in summer. An alternative is to take the Metro (Green Line 1) to Monastiraki Station, which is 500 metres from the hotel.

Witness History Come Alive

You'll tread the same roads and breathe the same air the Ancient Greeks did as you explore the twisting labyrinthine streets of Plaka. You can see the Acropolis from the hotel, and both it and Constitution Square are just a short walk away. Fill your days experiencing the marvels of Ermou and Syntagma, stumbling across archeological sites still being discovered all over the city, and shopping in quirky boutiques. Greeks have a great reputation for their warm hospitality and you can get your fill at Plaka's many vibrant bars and cafes. The Acropolis Museum, National Gallery, and Benaki Museum are all worth visiting, but this part of Athens has ancient beauty on every street.

Unwind after a busy day by sipping a cocktail or two in the hotel's Thea Terrace Bar on the roof of the building where breathtaking sights are laid out before you, then head back out to dine on superb food at one of the area's many tavernas and restaurants.

Affordable Modern Comforts

It may be surrounded by ancient sites but there is nothing archaic about the Central Athens Hotel. Rooms are compact and pristine, equipped with all modern conveniences including air conditioning, central heating, free internet access, a fridge, and LCD TV with satellite channels.

The Bottom Line

The Central Athens Hotel makes full use of its fantastic location. Upgrade to a Superior Room and drink in views of the Acropolis, knowing that you are witnessing a sight that has dominated the lives of Athenians for thousands of years. Being central to so many popular attractions means you're more likely to walk than use public transport, but the hotel's excellent breakfast will set you up for the day.
