    Location, price and elevator to the room

    Old staff and yoing staff. The old staff, there were three people in total, were not somfriendly, Especially an old couple staying in the lobby And the old man serving breakfast did not smell so good Breakfast was low average I recommend of you have low expectations because the price is great.

    Fabulous

    This is my second stay at the Rio. The staff are great and its an easy walk into the centre of town, easy access to the underground

    Got a twin room instead of a double but for 1 night was ok Asked staff to check out the air con as not 100% working & come the summer it would be hot

    Exceptional

    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

    L’ « appartement avec terrasse et minibar » réservé en ligne s’est transformé en une chambre pour 5 avec petite fenêtre sur la rue … une literie très médiocre entassée, les lits dont un lit d’appoint collés les uns aux autres, une fuite dans les sanitaires dont la fenêtre était bloquée… Accueil déplorable et, comble, paiement en espèces qui a été doublé par le prélèvement sur la carte visa donnée en caution lors de la réservation. Double paiement pour une expérience déplorable.

    die Lage

    WIFI ist schon etwas nervig ... Frühstück insgesamt o.k. aber: schade. es gibt in der Nähe genug Bäcker, die frisch gebackenes Brot anbieten. Im Hotel gab es leider nur ausgetrocknetes Brot vom Vortag!!!
