Guest reviews for Athenaeum Grand Hotel

My stay at the hotel was excellent. Very helpful staff and very willing to answer all questions about our stay, places to eat, and transportation nearby. My only recommendation is that customers are notified in advance about which one of their hotels you will stay in prior to arriving at the hotel. It is a bit annoying to arrive at the hotel for check in to be told that your stay will be at building number 2 down the street. We did have to wait for their shuttle to take us there. The second hotel is new and beautiful, but we should have been told in advance so we could have gone directly there. Excellent breakfast too.

Hotel in Kallithea

We had a snafu after checkin whereby our King room had zero view with a glass block window (no thanks). Switching to a room with a normal window took a while as they started to get busy. While we waited in the lobby I was reading quite a bit of negative reviews and was beginning to feel very uneasy. However, the Guest Experience Coordinator Joanna went out of her way to attempt to make things right and extended an offer to use the soda/water in the minibar as a comp. in the end we got a King bed, in a generous sized room with a normal window and the bathroom was very large with very strong water pressure. The complimentary breakfast included made to order omelettes and an extensive spread with fresh squeezed orange juice. The hotel offered transfers for a fee from the ferry (30 Euros) and to the airport (55 Euros) with complimentary drop off to the Acropolis. We stayed at the sister Athenaeum Palace Luxury Suites hotel which is across the busy street and maybe 4-5 buildings down from the Athenaeum Grand hotel which we actually booked. To us this was probably better because the hotel looked new, the lobby was very luxurious with plenty of seating and it was NOT situated between 2 strip clubs. I’d recommend staying here again.

The stuff of this hotel is, by far the best Ive even encountered. From the front desk, to maids and restaurant stuff they are all very helpful, accommodating and understanding.

Nice hotel.. close to main museums and sights.

Pros: It is just newly updated. Everything was fresh and clean. The decor was bright and open with ample seating and free drinks in the lobby.
Cons: The 2 elevators were pretty small for a hotel that size.
Location: The location was on a main thoroughfare and the city tour bus stop was walking distance. It close to some of the main sights.
It was really a wonderful experience for me and my wife. The hotel staff took care of us when we needed transportation. They gave us tips on how to get around. They provided free breakfast and it was better than many of the hotels we have previously stayed at. Taxi service was readily available and Metro service was nearby.
