    Location is excellent - short walk to Monastiriki or Syntagma stations. Staff was extremely helpful with all questions we had and very friendly. Room was clean and location on terrace was nice. Complimentary breakfast is very basic, but saves you time and money before venturing out to city. This is a great hotel for the price, and I would recommend to anyone going to Athens.

    Hotel was clean, comfortable; staff very helpful and friendly, reasonable continental style breakfast; free wi-fi; superb location for exploring city and shopping, dining etc

    there does not appearto be disabled access but I did not check this out (there are steps to entrance)

    Superb

    A good budget hotel right in the centre of Athens and an easy walk to all the major tourist attractions. Free wi-fi was a bonus. In particular we found the staff very helpful; industrial action disrupted our travel plans somewhat and meant we kept changing our check-out dates at short notice. The hotel had no problem accommodating this and the staff were quick to offer advice and information.

    Very good location; handy for the subway, airport connections using public transport, local food market and key attractions in central Athens.

    The simple but substantial breakfast was fine; but I wish the orange juice served at breakfast was fresh 100% orange juice.

    Good location. Some staff friendly and helpful. Desk open all night. They have a lift and most rooms have small balconies. Breakfast is ok.

    This hotel is not worth what they charge (They bumped the price when I changed dates for the room). The room was reasonably clean (the sheets were not fresh when I arrived, but changed the next day) and the Internet was not working or intermittent for most of my stay (as it goes in Greece, but they shouldn't advertise it if they can't deliver...they can afford a backup for what they charge). The room was very basic and you would expect a few amenities for the price, but no. I was later told by locals of better, cheaper options in the area and left after two days (one day too many).

    Fabulous

    I was very impressed with how clean the hotel was. Our room was serviced daily and it was excellent. When we were in Athens there was a taxi strike on but due to excellent location of the hotel we were not affected in any way ! It was very conveniently located. Ermou shopping street, two metro stations very close by !

    The balcony was great but there was nothing to see ie: no view, in fact the area it overlooked was grotty. I got the twin room and we found it a bit cramped for 2 adults with 2 bags. We also got the standard twin with extra bed for the family and this room was a bit bigger and the family found it quite comfortable.

    Superb

    Very convenient hotel ideally located to visit the city. Nice balcony, clean room with very functional bathroom. Good service, adequate breakfast included with the room. Not a luxury hotel, but does the job nicely. A few minutes by foot to the Monastiraki metro station which makes it ideal for airport transits. The hotel has a very nice old fashioned elevator that was even fun to use. Many restaurants nearby.

    Like anywhere else in Athens, the hotel environment is really noisy. There is a very popular bar next door, the street in front of the hotel is narrow and very busy even during the night with scooters and motorbikes constantly vrooming by. Worse, a neighbor has a little darn dog on a balcony facing the hotel that barks on and off, including during the night. Conclusion: Sleep is possible only by closing all openings and putting on the air conditioner.

    We had the Rooftop Terrace twin room with beautiful views of the Acropolis.

    The whole of central Athens is now covered in Graffiti which shocked my Mum.

    Exceptional

    This is the hotel I choose whenever I come to Athens for business. It is located in the center of Athens with most shops around, but at night is very quiet and safe too. It is a small and simple hotel, but for travellers who spend more time going around for tour, shopping or doing business, I think this is the ideal place. Rooms are very clean and staff is always very friendly and helpful to all your needs. In addition brealfast is very good. From the first time I stayed in Carolina Hotel, a few years ago, I was fully satisfied and I continue to be!

    The location of the hotel is perfect for a visit at the Acropolis and surrounding. The staff is friendly.

    The furnishing is minimal. Not a room to stay then for sleeping. Outside noisy but not bathering us because it is a part of the living in Athens.
