Bottom Line

Katerina Hotel is a mid-range property located near a metro station in Metaxourgeio, but it is far from sightseeing attractions. It's close to some run-down neighborhoods that not all travelers would be comfortable in. The hotel’s 51 rooms are slightly dated and have small showers, but adjoining rooms that can accommodate up to four people are available. A tasty breakfast buffet is included in the room rate, and the hotel has a bright cafe/bar area. Guests might want to check out the Plaka Hotel, a three-pearl property with a seasonal rooftop lounge that's within walking distance of the Acropolis, but has slightly higher rates than the Katerina.

Oyster Hotel Review

Hotel Katerina

Scene

Cozy, homey lobby and busy breakfast area

Outside by the hotel entrance  is a seating area where guests can sit and smoke on a tile porch decorated with leafy plants. Inside, the lobby has a cozy but dated feel with tapestry rugs and wooden couches with fabric cushions. Framed artwork, curio cabinets filled with colorful glassware, and a TV create a living-room feel. The cafe has big windows, tall ceilings, and a music-themed decor, including a Victrola, old radios, and a jukebox. Breakfast is served on tables with white linens and vases of fresh flowers, in an area with mirrored ceilings. Guests should arrive early to avoid lines. The hotel’s parking lot has a dilapidated look, with cracked asphalt, spare tires marking parking spots, and flimsy green roofing that is falling apart.

Location

On busy corner near a metro station, but far from sightseeing attractions

Katerina Hotel is on a busy corner on Metaxourgeio Square, across from some shops and next to a theater. The neighborhood is near other neighborhoods that are a bit rundown and graffitied -- not the nicest parts of Athens. Guests can take the nearby metro to Syntagma Square, which is within a 10-minute ride and from there walk to the Parthenon and Acropolis. The hotel has free parking, and Athens International Airport is about a half-hour drive.
