                    Hotel is close to the subway station.

                    The room was not clean, there were missing towels, toilett had to be fixed (flush not working). For south european standard even the breakfast that was included was sad to see.

                    The younger staff at Rio Athens were very friendly and helpful, making effort to help us print, fax and copy documents without any charge. Nothing is too much for them.

                    There was no soap in the bathroom, and the toilet stopped flushingon our second night. Also, there were no cups or kettle for drinking and boiling water.

                    It is close to Karaiskaki square. The person at the reception was very friendly and fairly helpful.

                    The rooms are a bit dark and not very welcoming. Seems like they have been built for whole families ( in our "double" there were beds for 5). We stayed for a night and it was perfectly fine but I would not recommend it for longer than 3 nights.

                    The Hotel Rio was perfect for our needs. We are all avid walkers so didn't mind the 30min hike to the center of Athens. You can take the metro as well as it is just around the corner from the hotel. The hotel staff made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Especially Marco and Litza who were there for our every need. Day trips can be booked through the hotel also. The hotel is older and the rooms a bit small but we managed. Ask for the hair dryer at the front desk. There are lots of great little restaurants in the area. We felt safe walking in the area even at night. We would all recommend the Hotel Rio.

                    Helpfull staff - they also printed out my electroonic flight ticket. Breakfast OK. Hotel in good condition (compared to the rest of Athens).

                    Rather loud environment. Could hear traffic noise even at my room at the backside of the hotel. They charged 30EUR from my credit card after booking the hotel. In 7 days two times there was no room cleaning.

                    Nice and quiet hotel. Loved that hotel is not in a main tourist area. Although most reviews say its in not so good location (even locals said, its not the best area, but we didn't find any trouble), I would say that location is great. Everything seems to be just a little walk away. Loved that Gkazi area was really close by and taxi back to hotel was rather cheap. Maybe not the best hotel for families but definitely good one for young adventurous people. We are a gay couple and are really happy with our hotel choice.

                    As read from some reviews, we got twin room instead of double room as booked. Apart from that everything was nice.

                    The atmosphere is great! My first impression was... "this is soo greek" It's a small hotel that allows you to experience the atmosphere of the city and the country, with all it's advantages and disadvantages. For a true experience visit the hotel

                    A little effort to make this hotel cleaner would improve my opinion further. I do understand that it is located in an old building, but further effort would be welcome

                    The location was excellent for access to attractions and transportation. The staff was excellent. The price was quite reasonable. The dining and food was excellent, and the complimentary breakfast was tasty and sustaining. The courtyard provided a comfort zone with just a few steps to the bustle of the city. This is where I would stay again if we were to return.

                    The air conditioning in the room was not working, and was never fixed during our 3 day stay. We did not appreciate that.

                    We stayed for a long weekend in the hotel in May 2011. Rio Athens it's a nice, friendly, not too expensive and well located hotel in Athens citycenter. The metro stop is just around the corner, metro station Metaxourghio.The staff (reception, bar & restaurant) are very friendly and help you as much as they can, the breakfast was really good, the rooms are clean and tidy. The restaurant and bar downstairs, serves lovely greek and Italian food, draught beer and refreshing drinks and cocktails .The breakfast is purely continental to suit everybody's tastes. The staff is welcoming and helpful and also extremely knowledgeable. From the hotel, you can walk to the Acropolis, the new Acropolis Museum, the National Archaiological museum near Omonia square and the Greek Parliament in Syntagma square and the main shopping areas within minutes walk in Hermou street. The night life area PSIRI and GAZI are very close too. Billy Redford San Diego,CA

                    everything was good!

                    The only positive point is that the hotel is very near to the metro station

                    There are many negative points that I felt. The staff was not at all good... rooms are so small...breakfast was worst... and so on.. I definetly won't recommend to my friends
