The Victory Inn is a charming, value hotel with 34 rooms on a residential street in central Athens.

Some rooms have balconies or terraces with seating. Bathrooms are tiny, with showers only, but there are nice little perks, such as robes. Several shops and sights are within walking distance, as well as such attractions as Pedion Areos Park, the Hellenic Motor Museum, and the National Archaeological Museum of Athens. Breakfast comes with a fee but can be taken in the rooms, and there is free Wi-Fi throughout.
Oyster Hotel Review
A homey value property in central Athens
This budget-friendly hotel is homey and quaint with small chandeliers and blue mood lighting in the lobby. Soft orange couches with green and purple pillows provide comfortable seating, while the bright lighting makes the space feel bigger than it is. The lobby also has a nice stone feature wall. The same style continues into the breakfast area, which has a chandelier in the tray ceiling, wood chairs, and black-topped tables. Black leather couches with green pillows add pops of color, and the big windows give the space some natural light. Like most hotels in its category, the Victor Inn may be low on frills, but it's comfortable and conveniently located.
On a residential street in central Athens
The Victory Inn is in a quiet area of Athens, with public transportation, the Pedion Areos Park, the Hellenic Motor Museum, and National Archaeological Museum of Athens within walking distance. A few shops and restaurants are less than a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Omonia Square and Syntagma Square are within a five-minute drive or a 13-minute metro ride, while the Acropolis and Parthenon are a 10-minute drive or 30-minute metro ride from the hotel.
Dated but clean, with a few unexpected perks
The rooms at the Victory Inn are small, with equally tiny bathrooms, but they're clean. Many of the spaces have a '70s color palette, with orange bedspreads, yellow curtains, purple pillows, and generic artwork on the walls. Rooms can accommodate no more than two people max, and the TVs are tube-style. All rooms come with mini-fridges with free bottled water, bathrobes, and air-conditioning, while some have balconies or terraces with seating. Gray tile with a brown accent band date the bathrooms, which have showers but no tubs. Small sinks provide little counter space, but there are sufficient towels and Victory Inn toiletries.
Free Wi-Fi, and 24-hour front desk and concierge service
There is no on-site bar or restaurant at the Victory Inn, but there is a daily breakfast for a fee, and it can be eaten in the rooms. The front desk and concierge services operate 24-hours a day, and guests say they've received hot drinks when arriving late at night. Room service is available, along with a laptop and printer for guests' use. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout.
