    Very good

    The hotel staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. It did what it said on the tin - good value for what we paid. Cracking views from the rooftop bar which were exceptionally good during the happy (2) hour(s). Restaurant and bar options were good.

    Reception lounge could be spruced up a bit to be a little more inviting and comfortable

    Superb

    many thanks to Stanley hotel due to the so much kinded help and service. in the date of our check-out, we are unlucky to meet the big strike, the hotel staff were so kind to help us to aggrange the early morning taxi and make a so good breakfirst even at 4:30 in the morning. thank you Stanley hotel. and also the hotel is so much near the metro(subway station), it just 100m, when you just come out of the station you can find it at once. a perfect choice for traving in athens.

    It was a great price for such a lovely hotel and the staff were amazing! The view of the Acropolis was amazing at night from the roof and from our balcony.

    We were on a budget so we only ate in the hotel restaurant once as we found that expensive (but tasty!) compared to local prices, but that is hotel price for you!

    Lunch or dinner at the roof top restaurant with views of the City, particularly the Acropolis, breath taking moments. Short walk to metro.

    We were fortunate to have a 7th floor room. The lower floors would suffer from the 24/7 roundabout traffic noise.

    The rooftop restaurant is excellent and has amazing views (much better than the hilton). The staff are pleasant and efficient.

    The rooms are comfortable but show their age a little.

    In a great location - the metro and hop on hop off buses are right at the front door. View from the pool, restaurant is fantastic. The hotel is close enough for all the attractions yet out of the real rat race

    The hotel signage is on the roof which is 9 floors up, we drove past it 3 times before realizing where it was

    Excellent location with very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent roof top bar and pool area with great views of Athens. Read this hotel was in an undesirable area but this is not the case, lovely friendly bar on the corner by the taxi rank. Easy access to the Metro system.

    Shower curtain stuck to me everytime - little moan.....

    2 night trip to watch Spurs match. Excellent value for money. Rooftop bar has great view, and rooftop swimming pool is a bonus. Minutes from Metro station, so handy for getting around.

    It was good value for money and the roof top restaurant was an awesome place to enjoy beautiful Greek cuisine and a magnificent view of the Acropolis. The staff at Stanley were outstanding and always professional and willing to help!

    Hotel Staff friendly and helpful (available 24/7), rooms are big and well equipped (comfortable bed, A/C, giant windows, balcony and great view, many towels in the bathroom), metro & taxis at 1 minute from the hotel, check out until 5pm.

    The breakfast is not that good especially the fruit juices (nevertheless it is only 4€/people and you can eat as much as you like)

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Location (somewhat) away from major attractions (1 - 2) mi. But only steps from Metro. If you want to walk outside for immediate restaurants, not so good. Very clean, breakfast a good value, staff helpful. Would stay again.

    Exclusive

    First impression was how friendly and efficient the staff were. They all had good English skills and nothing was too much trouble. Really first class. You could say that the decor is a little dated, but the upside is that our room was large. And all was spotlessly clean. A highlight is the rooftop bar and restaurant with a direct view of the Acopolis. Location was perfect for us. A subway station is right outside the door so access to the tourist sites is so easy, plus access to the port for ferry connections. We noticed some reviewers complained about the traffic noise. There are busy streets close by, but we chose a room at the back and the balcony doors are doubled. So if noise is a problem, the double doors eliminate it. Value for money was unbeatable and we would recommend the Stanley without reservation.

    Fabulous

    Clean and comfortable, situated right next to the Metro station. The staff are all friendly and helpful. The big plus factor for me was the rooftop restaurant, good food, and a lovely bar that is open until 2 A.M., from here you have fantastic views across the city and of the Acropolis .Bear in mind though that rooftop area is closed during the winter months. The Acropolis is within easy reach on the Metro , a day ticket for Bus / Metro / Tram is only 4 euros- but remember to validate your ticket as soon as you have bought it, the penalty fares are very stiff. Overall I found the hotel good value for money and a good base for a stay in Athens. I will be quite happy to stay there again.
