AthensWas a Great Place to stay.
The AthensWas hotel was perfectly located in the center of everything we wanted to see and do. The staff were amazing. We planned to stay there for a few nights, go to Santorini, then spend a couple nights in another hotel close to the airport. We cancelled the other hotel and came back to AthensWas. Yes. It was that good.

10/10 Exceptional

We greatly enjoyed the visit at AthensWas. The staff was super, especially Margarita who worked the front desk. She booked restaurants for us, knew the city very well. It is very well located just down the block from the Acropolis Museum. Our room had a nice patio with a splendid view of the Acropolis and Parthenon. We shall certainly stay here again next time in Athens.
