Hotel Rio Athens is an excellent place to stay in Athens if you are there for a holiday or any kind of trip. Great location in Metaxourghio which was not too noisy, access by road for taxi or if you have your own car, free parking in front of the hotel, free Wifi, also a short walk to the Metro station Metaxourghio. The room was comfortable and clean and the staff helpful. This is not a luxury 5* hotel but a very decent, and modest hotel providing a product which I consider well priced for its location.
We found September the best month for a vacation in Athens, since it was our first visit there.
Coming back from a satisfing cruise in the Greek islands we stayed in Hotel Rio Athens for two nights, just to relax befor our flight back home. The goodlooking building attracted us in the first place and made us book the hotel right away. The room we had was confortable including all the necesery amenities, clean and quite. The breakfast and dining were excellent as well as the coffe these guys made which was great. Not that we needed to visit the local attractions again,but we found it really easy to, since everything worth visitng were close within a sort walking distance and the metro station "Metaxourghio" was close by. We will sure visit Athens again and next time we will definetely choose Hotel Rio!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
All three desk agents we talked to were very helpful; one spoke excellent English. The room was small but had everything we needed, including free shampoo and a mini-fridge. It was in a quiet neighborhood, 4 metro stops from the Acropolis or about a 30-40 minute walk to Plaka. Very comfortable. We needed a cab at 4 a.m. and they organized this for us. I would definitely stay there again.
