We were refused a room at Athens Central Hotel. Staff explained that "it has been overbooked by Travelocity". I am aware that this happens with airlines, and the usual recourse is $500 voucher and a less convenient flight. I am not aware that this happens with hotels, and in our case the recourse was a 2-bedroom suite for $130 more per night, or take a walk. They sold our room to a higher bidder, and showed us out of the door. Not good. Travelocity is not good either, as they were supposed to at least let us know that this happened, and they did not.

Hi Pavel, Please contact the hotel to discuss this situation as this is very untrue and slanderous! We will be contacting Expedia as well about this untrue statement!

We stayed this past weekend. The location is perfect for visiting downtown Athens. We were surprised with the Valentine rose and champagne - Nice touch!!!! The room was great. The bed and pillows very comfortable. The rainfall shower was very relaxing. Having access to beverages in the refrig was very nice. When we visit Athens again, we will be reserving at the Athens Central Hotel again!
