The hotel has a great location. It is close to the metro, we walked to some great restaurants, and it is fairly quiet at night. The lighting was horrible. We all like to read before sleeping. If you do bring your headlamps. The breakfast is pretty bad if you like coffee. The coffee is not drinkable. It was some kind of instant from a machine.

This is a nice hotel although it's not in a nice area - I would not have felt safe at night if I had gone out around there. However the hotel has a lovely rooftop bar with amazing views of the Acropolis, and they do excellent food up there as well. The breakfast was also great and the room comfortable and quiet. The bar and breakfast staff were lovely. However the receptionist was unable to make eye contact and with great disdain eventually managed to answer our questions (which were hardly complex - we wanted to know where the Metro was and how long it took to get to the airport!). Overall this is fine for a brief stay and it's good value. The Metro is five minutes walk away.

Wifi internet in the room was horrible !!!! The only good spot for a good signal was on the roof top. Great view of the Acropolis by the way. They need to fix that problem! I booked a renovated room. Except the bathroom. Old style. Very disappointed. It shouldn't be post pictures on the site showing an updated bathroom.

I booked the room some months before our departure. The price wich I booked included breakfast. It was a non-refundable rate so I got the confirmation after payment. In the confirmation Expedia informed me that the rate did not include the brekfast and I had to pay further Eur 10/day for the breakfast. I could not get my money back although Expedia misleaded me. I did not get what I paid for. After a long correspondance and some phone calls I got always the same answer, and they were not willing to solve the problem but they were very unpolite and uncooperative. It was the first but also the last that I booked at Expedia! There are a lot of other agents wich are correct. I have never experienced this kind of fraud although I booked hundreds of rooms.
The hotel is basic but clean, the neighborhood is poor but metro station is near. The stuff is trying to be polite.

"Amazing accommodations for the budgeted traveler! "
Nafsika Hotel was situated in the perfect location, next to the metaxourghio metro station and an amazing cafe with the best gyros we found right across the sq. The double bed economy room is actually two twin beds but that didn't bother us much as the room was tidy and comfortable. The AC and TV were older, and didn't work up to normal standards but that was far outweighed by the friendly and helpful staff. My only complaint is that their bathroom was somewhat uncomfortably small and the plumbing had a strange smell that seemed to fill it at times, but for the price we paid I could not complain in the slightest. If you are looking for a cheap place from which you can easily explore Athens and beyond I strongly recommend Nafsika, the money we saved allowed us to do so much more within the city and even take a day trip to the Islands. If your looking for a luxury hotel, this is not the place for you - but if your not a persnickety fool and don't travel to stay in your room the entire trip, This will do just fine! easily accessible from the airport and easy access to all metro stations.

We found the hotel pleasant, clean and accessible. But it has to be said the staff made the hotel an excellent experience. We found them to be very polite, friendly and we were always greeted with a smile. They were very helpful and informative of places to visit, providing maps and travel info.
The hotel is well located next to metro station, which gives you access to all Athens within minutes. The rooms are immaculately clean. The shower is a bit small, but the bathroom overall was great. The service provided by hotel staff is excellent, exceeded my expectations. I had an early flight, and they even prepared us breakfast in bags to go at 5AM. If I come back to Athens, I would definitely come back!
A neighborhood in Athens, Metaxourgio is a place full of transition. Once home to laborers, the neighborhood is now multicultural and undergoing mass urban-gentrification. It is close to Karaiskaki Square and has its own metro stop, Metaxourgio, that can whisk visitors to central Athens.
