Check room availability and book online
I chose this hotel based on TA recommendations and the fact that they offered private balcony rooms with Acropolis views at a fair price. (...)
The staff are warm, friendly, and helpful. As stated in the other reviews you can walk everywhere from this location.
After a long day of touring in the very hot 95 degrees F July day, returning to our breezy balcony, sipping wine and eating delicious food from the hotel restaurant there was heavenly. Watching the illumination of The Acropolis was a memory I will never forget.
We booked directly from hotel website. They offered great deals with breakfast included.
Had a lovely visit. Was impressed that O&B reached out to me a couple of days before I arrived to ask if I needed and help with transportation. They ended up arranging for a taxi to meet my husband and I at the Pireaus port as we got off our cruise ship.
The staff at the hotel is very friendly and eager to help however they can. Our room was clean and modern. No complaints. The neighborhood seems a little sketchy but it is not. The hotel is conveniently located 1/2 block from the pedistrian path (that mopeds also use) to the Acropolis which is maybe a 10 or 15 minute walk. Also a 10 minute walk down Ermou to the shopping area. About a block or 2 from the hotel is an area filled with bars, restaurants and cafes that we hung out in one night. It was non-touristy and a treat to get out of the crowds and feel more like a local.
The hotel was quiet so don't be afraid of my previous comments. The breakfast buffet was good and had many options to choose from.
Extraordinarily friendly and comfortable hotel with a great in-house restaurant.
The staff made every effort to help us and make us feel at home. We had great views of the Acropolis including a window from the bathroom.
Outstanding staff. Great selection at breakfast.luxury toiletries and jet power shower.
Totally ticked all the boxes for our needs. Good location for accessibility to all the sights.
I went there with my family; I would like to celebrate my birthday. Everyone came from different countries, and I was looking for a very charming hotel, it was the right decision. I was happy to find it.
Close to the main attractions of Athens and the flea market. Everything is new, well conditioned and comfortable.
Breakfast recommended: good pastry, all types of coffees, speciality in omelettes: I preferred the tomato and feta one (Greek ingredients).
Definitively I will come again!
Pros: I loved everything! Please see my comments about my experience. I will stay here every time I go back!
My experience was probably one of the most personalized and exceptional ones I have had in my extensive travel experiences. It started before I left home with the hotel e-mailing me for any dietary restrictions, and asking if I needed a transfer from the airport. The airport transfer was arranged lightening fast and was excellent. I have a rare allergic disease, and am VERY limited in what I can eat. The chef made sure foods I could eat were stocked, made a list for all meals for me, and handmade some special items. He came out and spoke with me the first day to make sure there was nothing else he could do to help. To say this was exceptional does not do it justice. It made me feel safe, cared for, and that they put the customer needs and experience above all else. The hotel itself is a small and personalized boutique hotel. Our room was spotless, comfortable, enough room to have a massage done!, it had a very updated bathroom with a rainforest shower. Plenty of closet space, in room safe, mini bar, LOTS of television options in English (where if you travel to Europe a lot, you know is a treat). The coordination of services was incredible. If we were down at dinner, they communicated with housekeeping to turn down the room. You did not have to tell them who you were, what your room was, they just knew every guest by name, room, such great attention and touches!!!! If you needed it, they arranged it. Lastly, incredible central location. We were in the heart of everything.
Abbiamo dormito in questo boutique hotel 5 notti durante le festivita' natalizie. E' un ottimo posto dove soggiornare. Vicinissimo a tutto, centrale, ubicato in un quartiere davvero caratteristico, dove e' possibile respirare un' atmosfera autenticamente shabby, con negozietti di bric a brac e ristoranti alla moda ma accessibili.
Siamo stati accolti e trattati con cortesia e gentilezza davvero uniche. (...) Il personale e' giovane e sempre sorridente, pronto a dare consigli su dove passare la serata o come raggiungere i luoghi della citta'.
La colazione e' completa e le ragazze che ricevono veloci ed efficienti. Siamo stati davvero benissimo ed in definitiva e' un posto dove torneremmo sempre molto volentieri... Per persone che amano le cose autentiche.
+ Fantastically friendly, helpful, knowledgeable desk staff; excellent, convenient location; lovely ambience/decor
Our family group (parents, adult kids + friends) really enjoyed our stay at the O&B hotel (3 nights between Christmas and New Year). We had 3 lovely rooms (Superior Double, Petite Suite and Junior Suite).
Breakfast every morning was excellent (buffet style incl. scrambled + fried eggs, cereals, rolls, cakes, fruit, Greek yogurt, freshly squeezed OJ - as well as made-to-order pancakes + waffles). We got excellent tips for restaurants and transport from the desk staff.
We were completely satisfied with our stay - really one of the best hotel experiences we have had in years of traveling.
I spent 2 nights at the O&B and thoroughly enjoyed my stay which was made all the more enjoyable by an extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Hats off to them for their professionalism, their kindness and willingness to provide help. The rooms are nice, clean, modern and cosy, breakfast is delicious, the greeting appetizers made up of Greek specialties were very tasty, roomservice is efficient and yummy as well.
At first, I was a bit taken aback by the seediness of the street the hotel is located in but it turned out to be a great asset, as all the major tourist attractions, historical sites are within walking distance and said street is completely safe. Do not look anywhere else, O&B is a fantastic place to stay in Athens.
The O&B Athens Boutique Hotel was one of our most pleasant surprises during our 2 week vacation in Greece. The hotel seemed new... was extremely clean and contained spacious rooms when compared to average sized European hotel rooms. The rooms had all the amenities and more of any U.S. boutique hotel. Even though the hotel seemed to be located on a side street, it was strategically well located to the Acropolis... a 20 minute easy walk up the Acropolis to the Parthenon. The hotel was also a short distance to old and new shopping districts and an easy walk to the Parliament where there is an hourly changing of the guard to the 'unknown soldier.'
Most of all, our stay experienced the most competent, sincere and helpful staff that my wife have experienced in all of our travels. This included front desk personnel, restaurant employees and housekeeping staff. And we discovered the one best kept secret of O&B; that being, the quality of food at dinner was extraordinary! Of course, most people desire to go outside the hotel to experience the cuisine of Athen's restaurants; however, if one does not experience a few evenings dining at O&B, you will miss out on an outstanding Greek prepared meal and dining experience!. My wife and I, plus the couple who traveled with us, highly recommend the O&B and we will tell our friends of our outstanding experience forever.
+ the great location, the delicious and fresh breakfast, the attentive staff
We had a lovely stay in Thissio... The hotel had a great location. We loved the walkability and the new and upcoming bars and restaurants in the delightful windy back streets. We felt like we had found many hidden gems in a non-touristy new section.
The help was very attentive and took time to chat with us. Even as we arrived, they gave us a cold drink at check in! After we got to our room, we surprised by a knock at the door to find a smiling delivery of a welcome tray of some traditional snacks and drinks! ( which we ate on our balcony, in full view of the Acropolis.)
Later in our stay, they even suggested preparing a breakfast box for us to take away on a very early morning departure... The hotel is very new and swanky, with very nice decor. Really, a lovely hotel experience.
Upon arrival we were greeted with champagne, homemade chocolate and fresh fruit. This began the trend of impeccable service for the rest of our stay. The staff was over the top kind and helpful.
The room was very nice with a comfortable bed, large bathroom and nice vanity mirror. The view of the Acropolis from our private spacious balcony was amazing!
We found the breakfast to be SO delicious. The best complimentary breakfast I have ever had. I have a gluten allergy and they made me my own gluten free bread!
The location was perfect! very close to shopping, dining and accessible to all tourist destinations.I will definitely stay here again if I come back to Athens!
Room Tip: Stay in the top floor room with the Acropolis view!!!
A hidden gem in Athens, the service provided to us was ultimate 4 Star. We were coming back from a tour in the Greek isles and Turkey. We decided to stay one night in Athens to visit the Acropolis and other historical landmarks.
Amazing service from beginning to end. We were welcomed by the most courteous staff member I ever encounter. I worked for the hotel industry for almost 12 years now, my friend and girlfriend were blown away by the excellent customer service we received.
Loved this place....I highly recommended..
Pros: The modern amenities inside makes your stay very comfortable! Pampered is the word that comes to mind!
Cons: I can't think of anything that needs improvement!
Only spent a couple nights in Athens at this hotel, but they were two extremely comfortable and pampered nights! The staff was always so helpful and friendly whether asking for directions or restaurant recommendations, and the wait staff in the restaurant was extremely pleasant and attentive! (...) The proximity to the Ancient Agora, the Acropolis, and the vibrant Monastiraki, Plaka, and Psiri areas made it super convenient to sight see central Athens. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay there again the next time I'm in Athens!

We stayed two nights and really enjoyed it. The location is excellent because it's really close to the tourist sights, but not in a solely tourist part of town. Tons of great local cafés around.
The hotel is very smartly decorated and outfitted. The beds are comfortable. The staff is excellent. The breakfast is great.
We stayed in a family room (we have two kids). It was very comfortable and plenty roomy.
Замечательный отель!Расположение в самом центре,около Плаки.Район антиквариата)Тихо,достойно.Номера хорошие,небольшие,но оформлены стильно и удобно.Кровати мягкие.Халаты,тапки в номере.Завтраки хорошие,всё свежее,вкусное.Остались очень довольны!
Sono rientrato ieri da un week end ad Atene e devo confermare tutte le recensioni positive su quest'Hotel. Situato a due minuti a piedi dalla fermata della metropolitana di Thissio ed a 5 da quella di Monastiraki (la linea 3 che arriva diretta dall'aereoporto), l'hotel ha una posizione perfetta "walking distance" da tutto: l'agorà, la plaka, monastiraki, l'acropoli, piazza Sintagma, il quartiere di Psiri con una marea di ristoranti e taverne, frequentate dai greci e lontane anni luce dai locali super turistici della Plaka. (...)
Ma il vero valore aggiunto che fa la differenza è la cortesia di tutto il personale e la cura del cliente. Dall'accoglienza all'arrivo, al sorriso perenne di tutti, all'aperitivo di benvenuto servito in camera pochi minuti dopo l'arrivo e nel nostro caso condito con una fetta di torta con tanto di candelina, perchè era il compleanno di mia moglie. E poi tutte le informazioni che si desiderano, efficienza e, ribadisco, tanta disponibilità, sempre condita da un sorriso.

On a European tour and by far the best hotel I've been to thus far. Wish they had other locations throughout Europe!!! Excellent value, Great staff, Perfect location. Minutes to shopping, restaurants, and of course the Acropolis. Why bother eat out. Restaurant food was easily 5 out of 5. Will stay again without a doubt on my next trip to Athens. Thank you again for a wonderful stay!!!

feedback at O&B, Nov 2013
Pros: Room, Location, Service
Location: Right in the middle of everything, but still quiet and private in the room. In walking distance of everything you'd want to see.
We stayed here for our last evening in Greece, and it was unbelievable. We originally booked the wrong date through Expedia, and called the hotel. They offered us a great suite at a discount on the correct date. The suite was huge, and had a view of the Acropolis. The hotel was walking distance from street markets, restaurants, and sights. The staff was very helpful, and did a great just suggesting places and activities for our last night. They also arranged a cab to the airport the next morning, and prepared breakfast boxes for us to take. Just an incredible place.
We can't say enough about this boutique hotel. Upon check in we were offered glasses of cold ice water, so refreshing in the Athens heat. Then we were personally escorted to our room by a member of the front desk staff, who explained all the details about the room.
The breakfast was superb, with many choices, and they will even honor special requests. The rooms are a little small but comfortable. The hotel is well-situated within walking distance of the Acropolis and good restaurants. You can even book a day trip or excursion through the front desk. All in all, an excellent hotel in the heart of Athens.
l'hôtel est situé près de l'Acropole, d'une station de métro, le quartier est populaire , la rue n'est pas bruyante; l hôtel est très bien tenu, la salle de douche est très grande. des peignoirs , chaussons sont fournis.
le personnel est très aimable et serviable; un plateau de bienvenu nous a été offert ( mezzés et ouzo).le petit déjeuner est très bien (avec jus d'oranges frais).

Our experience at this hotel was the best!!! The staff should get a 10 rating they cannot do enough for you!!!Very warm and welcoming.
The room was beautiful and shower was GREAT. The Location was close to everything. I felt very safe. The breakfast Buffet was very good as well.
What a great bunch of guys, customer service is everything (listen and learn the rest of Europe) and these guys excel. Hard to know where to begin so we'll start from when we walked in. Greeted with a smile, offered all sorts of things, great knowledge of the area and gave up some handy tips and off we went. Breakfast was divine, as was the service, you could not ask for anything better. The ladies were delightful, a pleasure to chat with and also very helpful. The rooms were small but we only had the standard, so for that, it was perfect. We even discussed upgrading but we couldn't afford it, still, they did check it out with no issue, so thanks for that.
If ever you wanted a great stay then this is the place. Great location, they organised tours and airport transfer. We stayed in many hotels over our two month holiday and this was by far the best in the whole of Europe. Congrats to the team, you should all be very proud.
Many many many thanks for a great stay xx
+ The Staff, The Meals, The Overall Comfort
We had the most amazing stay, the staff are a delight, the rooms were amazing, the location was great and we would definitely recomment to anyone.

Prime location walking distance from metro and all the sights . Fab restaurants close by. Streets a bit tatty but do not detract from the experience.
Without doubt, this was the best hotel we stayed in during our recent trip around European cities. Modern, clean, up to date, amazing staff, lovely restaurant and fantastic room. Superb welcome, a hospitality tray on our arrival was wonderful. The bathroom was gorgeous, lovely toiletries and the bed was fabulously comfortable. The breakfasts were plentiful, delicious and filling.
Great location, easy access to Acropolis and other sites, also a short walk from the metro. The lively atmosphere around the hotel's environs added to the flavour of our trip. Lots of graffiti around and about the local streets looked a bit scruffy but in fact didn't spoil the locality. Endless choice of great food everywhere, particularly around Monastiraki and Plaka. The centre of Athens and all of its delights are within walking distance of the O&B Athens Boutique Hotel.
I travelled with my girlfriend for 3 nights and had pre-booked this place a month or two in advance. We were not disappointed. (...) We found ALL of the staff pleasant, friendly and all done in a very non-intrusive way. The staff on reception very knowledgeable and helpful too.
Centrally located. Quite simply one of the best places I’ve ever stayed in and my girlfriend just loved it too.
Would recommend to anyone including families which we saw at breakfast having some additional options being discussed to keep their kids happy. They really know how to look after people properly. comment on tripadvisor.co.uk, Apr 2013
Great location, a few minutes walk to the rest of central Athens, and quiet enough to sleep at night. The district Psiri behind this hotel is where the locals hang out, lots of lovely bars, cafes and restaurants!!!
(...) Would recommend anybody to this lovely hotel!!! :) comment on tripadvisor.com.au, Mar 2013
Plus: Friendliness of the staff, all of them. Minus: Everything was great. Location: Close to walk to all sites.
Best hotel, makes you feel like your #1 at all times. Clean, modern, and they go out of their way to make sure everything is covered. Food is good, discount in restaurant, bar is very well priced. Good instructions of the city, close to everything by walking. Rooms are soundproof from outside, very quiet, staff makes you feel great all the time. Will help call for reservations and take all the worries out of everything. I would like to say the hostess in the restaurant was great and very professional and the night bar tender always had a smile and welcomed my wife and I every evenning with smile that was sincere and cared about our day. The receptionist did a great job making our stay easy also with great directions. comment on expedia.com, Feb 2013
