Guest units are basic in design, with gray decor and neutral wood floors as well as bathrooms that, in some cases, have whirlpool tubs. Kids under the age of six stay free.
Oyster Hotel Review
Athens Atrium Hotel & Suites
Nothing out of the ordinary, but a calm and relaxed ambiance
The unassuming lobby has retained its original classic molding on off-white walls, high ceilings, and a few contemporary features like a frosted glass plate with the property’s name. A second-floor gallery houses modern wall art. Otherwise the common space is fairly simple and reminiscent of a residential building’s foyer. The hallways have a similarly generic, apartment-like feel. The hotel’s owners are quick to suggest items of interest as well as dining spots, making for a welcoming atmosphere. Guests range from single travelers to middle-aged couples to families.
In Syngrou, with transportation options to major sights
The Athens Atrium is located a bit more than two miles southwest of the Acropolis in the quiet Syngrou area. There are quite a few strip clubs in the area, but the neighborhood is innocuous enough and generally safe, with a nearby street that presents dining options. Both the Agios Sostis bus stop and Aegeou tram stop are within walking distance of the property. The nearest metro station is Syngrou-Fix, around a 20-minute walk or a five-minute taxi ride away. And for those who seek sand and sea, the beautiful Astir Beach is 25 minutes south by car. Piraeus Port is a 15-minute drive west from the hotel while Athens International Airport is 35 minutes southeast.
Comfortable and calm environments, but plain and devoid of interesting decor
Guest units here are simple, spacious, and airy due to the tall ceilings, and beds are made up with quality bedding and orthopedic mattresses. Rooms feature lacquer or laminate furniture and are painted in muted colors with little to catch the eye. Superior Rooms come with a choice of king-size or twin beds along with separate sitting areas with comfortable chairs and balconies. Executive Jacuzzi Rooms offer marbled bathrooms with toiletries and whirlpool baths as well as hydro-massage showers, bathrobes, and slippers. All rooms have air-conditioning, central heating, flat-screen TVs, tea and coffee facilities, and free Wi-Fi. Other perks include stocked minibars, plenty of outlets, and reading lights by the beds.
With lots of meeting space and a ballroom for weddings, the hotel lacks a spa and swimming pool.
In addition to the free breakfast buffet, on-site eating options at the hotel include Brasserie Snack-Bar and the Atrium Restaurant, with the latter focusing on formal dining. Four well-equipped, soundproofed conference rooms are available for meetings, seminars, and social events. The Atrium Ball Room is a suitable choice for parties and weddings with room for 200 people. Additional amenities include an on-site TV room, cinema facilities, and an impressive, bright Internet room with six computers, along with free Wi-Fi. Underground parking is free while airport transfers can be arranged for a fee.
