Bottom Line

The 76-room Airotel Alexandros is an upper-mid-range hotel in a convenient location in Athens close to the Acropolis and two metro stations. There's no pool or spa, but the hotel does have a small business center and private parking. The grounds are well maintained, and rooms here are clean and cozy, with a fresh, minimal feel in the more recently updated rooms, which come with flat-screen TVs and stocked minibars. Some lower-level rooms are not renovated and are sporting dated decor. The free buffet breakfast is full of tasty and healthy choices, and Don Giovanni is a traditional, cozy restaurant with a decent buzz. Wi-Fi is free throughout the property.

Oyster Hotel Review

Airotel Alexandros

Scene

Classic hotel with a mix of modern and dated decor

The Airotel Alexandros is an upper-mid-range property that has a mix of modern and dated decor. The bright and airy lobby is classically elegant, if on the dated side in places, with glass tables, potted plants, and leather chesterfield sofas. There are several different clusters of couches and chairs, some more modern than others, throughout the common spaces. In some areas, the hotel needs at least a coat of paint, while in others it feels fresh with streamlined decor. The central location is a big draw here, attracting business travelers and families. Overall, the atmosphere is no-frills and quiet, if lacking some polish.

Location

Centrally located, within a five-minute walk of the Acropolis

Situated at the foothill of the Acropolis next to the historic Plaka neighborhood, the hotel is within walking distance of many of the city's attractions, including the Acropolis Museum. Various shops, bars, and restaurants are within a 10-minute walk. Airotel is near the American Embassy and Music Megaron, and close enough to Kolonaki Square to walk there on foot.

Rooms

Some rooms are more up-to-date than others.

Many rooms at the Airotel Alexandros are modern, open, and clean, with cream walls and lime green accents, while others (often lower-level rooms) are dated with functional furniture and classic, bordering on drab, decor. Rooms higher up the building tend to be quieter, and the ones at the back face a shabby apartment block. Bathrooms have minimal white tiles and creamy marble fittings in the more expensive rooms, and swirly gray tiling in the standard rooms -- but all feel clean and modern. Balconies aren’t furnished and overlook a busy street. All rooms have flat-screen TVs (some are quite small) and stocked minibars, plus free Wi-Fi.

Features

Free newspapers in the lobby, free breakfast, and a relaxing coffee shop

The Airotel Alexandros doesn't offer much in the way of amenities -- its convenient location and reasonable rates are the biggest draws for many guests. That said, the hotel’s coffee shop and bar provide a relaxing ambience and there are free newspapers in the lobby. Don Giovanni restaurant is a cozy, although somewhat dated, space. Both breakfast and Wi-Fi are free.
