“Fabulous Hotel in heart of the city”

Me and my five friends we have just returned from a long weekend in Athens and would very much recommend this hotel. It is amazingly central and minutes away from metro line to the airport. All sights can be reached by walking except possibly the harbour which is a 20 minutes with the metro to the port of Pireaus. This meant that we could easily pop back throughout the day as we were never far away.. Breakfast offers an amazing choice, much better than a lot of more expensive hotels we have stayed in.Our room was nice and comfortable, offering everything we need.I would honestly think that it would be difficult to find a nicer and better situated hotel in Athens.

Great and Convenient located Hotel !!!

Rio Athens Hotel is a great 3 star hotel option for travellers who prefer to stay in the centre of town and close enough to enjoy the essentials of Athens, Acropolis, Plaka, all the Museums and of course nightlife for a single guy like me. The hotel is located right next to the ‘’Metaxourghio’’ metro station that makes my moving to center more easier. Rio Athens itself seems relatively new and clean. The staff is friendly, helpful and the breakfast is excellent! I would definitely return to this hotel! A very affordable and convenient stay in the heart of Athens! I totally recommended!

Helpful reviews, Excellent Hotel !!!

Reviews from specific site were very helpful in choosing this hotel. The Hotel Rio Athens is a great hotel with a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are clean though basic. Location is excellent. Karaiskaki square is the area to stay, ( metro station Metaxourghio), because all the Archaelogical sights of interest are within walking distance, Acropolis, National Museum incudes the nightlife of the city Psiri and Gazi areas. Nice breakfast dining room. Staff was very helpful with information concerning travel agencies, directions, taxis, etc. Will stay there again as price right and room comfortable.

Excellent Hotel!!

The Hotel Rio Athens was very clean and in an excellent location. It was literally only a few minutes walk from the metro station ‘’Metaxourghio’’ and we get there very easy. Also quick and cheap access to all the major attractions Acropolis, Plaka, Museums etc. The room was clean, quiet and nicely decorated. The breakfast was excellent with a good choices. The best thing about the hotel was the staff who were all absolutely charming and very helpful. They was equally helpful in finding us the best deal for a sightseeing bus tour of the city. If we were in Athens again we would certainly be happy to use this hotel Rio again!!

“Excellent choice in the heart of Athens”

We stayed at Rio Hotel Athens for three nights at the end of an island hopping holiday back in September. We had caught the night ferry into town and found the hotel really easy to find wioth it's central location close to the metro station "Metaxourghio". The hotel staff we're very helpful and accommodating with our early check-in and directions on how to get around the city and the best events happening during our short stay. The rooms were of a very good standard and were great value for money. The restaurant out in yard really is great and we spent the early evening there on both nights were we had delicius Greek dishes. We really enjoyed our stay at the Rio Hotel Athens and would certainly recommend it to any of our friends planning a trip to Athens. The central location is perfect for any visitor but especially those only staying for a short time with close proximity to the Acropolis area and other sites of Athens.

Great location...!!, Wonderful Hotel.!!!

I stayed at the Hotel Rio Athens –metro station Metaxourghio-for a week in May 2011 and enjoyed both the hotel and the experience of Athens in the less busy spring season. My triple room was very comfortable, well furnished, spotlessly clean and with a spacious, modern bathroom. What you see on the hotel website is what you get. Overall, great money value. The hotel also has a terrace with even better views. The hotel is well located in the citycenter next to the metro station - also called Metaxourghio - with cafes, shops, pharmacies, banks etc nearby. I particularly enjoyed two meals at hotel restaurant - its delicious modern Greek and Italian food was more interesting than the tourist-oriented places. The area is interesting and safe, with lots of people out strolling until late. From the hotel, you can walk to the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, Omonia square and Syntagma square and the main shopping areas within minutes.The night life area PSIRI and GAZI are very close too. All the hotel staff I encountered were friendly and very helpful. The room was very well serviced and the hotel breakfast was excellent. The Hotel Rio Athens management and all its staff deserve congratulations. . The hotel also conducts tours and trips in and around the city for visitors. We will be back again!!!

Beautiful hotel, great Location!!!

Our stay in the Hotel Rio Athens did only left us feeling satisfied. This lovely place is located in the city center of Athens in the quiet neighborhood of "Metaxourghio" close to the metro station and also close to all local attractions . The buillding, which is neoclassical in taste, has been restored with all the possible modern amenities. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and the décor, simplistic.The restaurant and bar serve lovely greek and Italian food, brilliant café 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 Acropolis Museum, Omonia square and Syntagma square and the main shopping areas within minutes.The night life area PSIRI and GAZI are very close too. The hotel also conducts tours and trips in and around the city for visitors. We will sure prefer this hotel again for any future stay in Athens!!! Marissa Ann Franklin Talahassee,FL
