Hotel dioskouros

In an unassuming street directly under the acropolis in the atmospheric old quarter of plaka and right next to the brand new acropolis museum, hotel dioskouros is located in one of the city's more exclusive areas, offering travellers a first-rate location, at budget hostel rates.

This intimate hotel offers clean and simple rooms with shared bathrooms and all basic hotel facilities: air conditioning, inclusive breakfasts, free internet wifi in common area, 24-hour reception and security. Several top floor rooms offer a close-up view of the acropolis while the garden below comes alive in the summer for guests to drink, socialize and relax.

The hotel's immediate surroundings present a palpable sense of history. Guests can follow the ancient paths winding around the acropolis, the temple of zeus, byzantine churches, neoclassical mansions, small eclectic museums and the new world-class acropolis museum - all of which are within a seven minute walk. Traditional greek tavernas line the cobbled streets as do the traditional greek blues houses (rembetika) and ouzo bars to boot.

Venturing a few minutes further by foot, guests could find themselves within the shopping district of ermou, hunting for antiques at monastiraki's flea market, following the footspteps of socrates at the ancient marketplace, sipping coffee in kolonaki, or in the vibrant party areas of gazi or psyrri.

All essential amenities are accessible including direct transport links to the airport (30 minutes away by metro or bus), easy access to the beach at glyfada (via tram or metro) and train links to the south cost port of pireas.

Dioskouros hotel offers an ideal location from which the seasoned traveller can tap into an ancient world at unbeatable rates.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Low price and great location. Crappy breakfast and lots of extra costs, like 10 euros for a few hours of air condition etc. Nice staff, but they should have known a little bit more english.
