"Choose the right floor ;)" President Hotel Tip by ApatiGR

President Hotel, Athens: 1,257 reviews and 13 photos

Stayed twice and the experience is mixed. First time I got a high floor and the room was nice with a great view overlooking Athens. Ok, it is not the best view to face tons of cement but i liked it i could see the sea and all these cars moving at Kifisias street. at my first visit I didn't try the breakfast ( i am not into early wake up and eating).
the personnel at the desk are not anything special in terms of service..they act like you are not an client but i admit without hassling you or anything else..
my second stay was a bit adventurous..i initially got an even better view on the 17th floor but it was a 2-bed and i wanted a twin. as it was late i had to accept a room at 2nd floor which really sucked! they should sell them for much less and not at the same price. the guy at the desk told that the room is old and not a good one but he just gave the 2 bed option which i rejected. so i had to smell this strange odour and sleep at a 2 star room in a 4 star hotel. i even tried to compromise my negative view with waking up and trying the breakfast but that was the worse..food was less than average for such a hotel and the dining place really really cold. maybe one of the most odourless spots that i took my breakfast.

here is the deal, for 80 euros for a twin you get intrigued but i'd pay some more to stay to a hotel that it worths its money. Athens seems to be an expensive city in nowadays. read my review on 2 other main hotels that i stayed recently if you like to learn more.

Unique Qualities: Good to excellent view if you get there early.
