Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Rooms are sleek and modern, with spacious bathrooms
  • Flat-screen TVs, media hubs, and coffeemakers
  • A Mediterranean fine dining restaurant and a rooftop restaurant
  • A lobby bar, coffee shop, and 24-hour room service
  • Rooftop pool
  • Big fitness center with hardwood floors
  • Sauna and a spa treatment room
  • Business-friendly, with 14 meeting rooms and a business center

Cons

  • No full spa (but a limited menu of massage and beauty services are available)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi (first 30 minutes are free in the business center)

Bottom Line

The Crowne Plaza is a solid luxury option in a central Athens location, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and Syntagma Square. Though the hotel caters to business travelers with its 14 meeting rooms and well-equipped business center, leisure travelers can appreciate the rooftop pool, two restaurants, and small fitness center. The hotel does not have a full spa, but does provide a limited menu of spa services and an on-site sauna. Rooms are sleek and modern, and come equipped with spacious bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, media hubs for electronics hookups, and coffeemakers. Some guests feel nickel-and-dimed by the additional fee for Wi-Fi, but for a luxury property, the Crowne Plaza often offers reasonable rates considering its long list of amenities.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a central location within walking distance of shops and restaurants

The Crowne Plaza is in a central, upscale area within walking distance of Syntagma Square. The residential neighborhood is one of the most exclusive in Athens, and is home to upscale restaurants and shops.

Athens is bustling but charming to some, and a touristy mess to others. The cradle of Western civilization is steeped in history in a way few capital cities are, featuring some of the most recognizable archaeological sites and ancient temples in the world -- but it also has fierce traffic and dirty sidewalks. The city underwent an urban renewal prior to the 2004 Olympics, which resulted in a less congested, more pedestrian-friendly city center. However, the 2008 economic crisis hit Athens hard. Syntagma Square, where Athens' Parliament building is located, has been the site of numerous protests, so tourists may want to steer clear in times of political instability.

  • 30-minute drive to Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport
  • 5 to 20-minute walk to numerous shops and restaurants
  • 9-minute walk to the National Gallery
  • 25-minute walk, or 7-minute drive, Syntagma Square
  • 7-minute drive to Hadrian's Arch
  • 9-minute drive to the Athens City Museum
  • 9-minute drive to the Acropolis
  • 11-minute drive to Ancient Agora
  • 12-minute drive to the National Archaeological Museum
