we spent three night at Cecil and found it to be a good choice. Rooms a little small however the breakfast room and staff made up for it. Oh yes, the shower curtain could be a little longer to prevent the entire bathroom floor from getting wet during a shower. Thank you for an enjoyable sty in wonderful Athens.

Apart from the location this hotel has nothing to offer. We arrived late and got a room which still had the garbage from the people before in it. The staff however gave us a new room, which we definitely appreciated. Still, the overall stay was negative. The breakfast is really not worth trying! The bathroom is old and run-down with a missing shower curtain that when a leaking hand shower is added ends in flooding the bathroom. Whats more is the uncomfortable feeling that our room was showed to


Staff were very accomidating and helpful. the cecil is about 3 blocks from a main square where the nite view of the accropolis is breathtaking. Although the area looks run down we never once felt like we were in rough area as everyone was very helpful to tourists. The rooms were a good size and the 100 year old elevator is better that any I've been in.


The mains issues was the bathroom that was not clean and after the shower there was water all around and the speed of the wifi that was very poor.


Clean, safe and in a good location. The only thing that could be improved was the breakfast. Everything was clearly the cheapest available and tasted like it too.


The internet only worked like 10% of the time...other than that, this is a small but nice hotel

This was very central to all the sights and easy to find.


Excellent place for location and ease but dont expect much of the rooms. Staff are helpful as well.


Close to metro, restaurants


Central location, good value for money - very helpful and friendly staff and air condition is a big plus. One thing to note is the very thin wall and that wifi is not available in all rooms. Nice view from roof top terrace and elevator to all floors.


Highly recommend to stay here. It is central to the metro, acropolis and shopping. The hotel was clean, staff is friendly and 24 hr security.
