Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just a typical Novotel, everything is standard and the decor is in line with all Novotel chains. The breakfast is ok, not especially exciting but did the job. The hotel has a beautiful roof top but obviously it’s too cold to swim in January but great view of the city. The room is nice and clean. The hotel is situated outside the touristy attractions and the walk to the city center can be bit rough, it goes through some pretty rough areas and the neighbourhood doesn’t seem like a nice one that I would like to walk around to be honest. All the nice restaurants or places from the hotel we go with a taxi with costs 5-10 euros max usually, so not too bad. Overall I think for the price it is acceptable.

I would start with the staff, which is so hardworking, friendly and polite. Due to the issues created by Covid 19 we had to cancel and book again our staying at Novotel, and the support and patience we got from the staff was excellent.
We arrived by train from Thessaloniki, and being just 9 minutes walk from the train station to the hotel we decided to walk, it is conveniently situated, so the taxi ride to the city centre won't be more than 7e and to the Acropolis maybe 10e.
Again due to Covid 19 I won't recommend breakfast as you'll get just coffee, croissants, yogurt and boiled eggs, so in my opinion 12e per person is a bit much.
The room is great, nice and spacious with deep foam mattresse very comfortable.
We enjoyed some drinks at the pool bar where we got nice view on daytime and night time as well.
We chose 2nd time Novotel, 1st one was in Bucharest, and we weren't disappointed.

We stayed here for a week and loved it. Although the immediate area looks a bit scary at night as long as you are careful and aware of your surroundings you will be ok. It’s no worse than any other big city. Very close to the metro so easy to tour other areas from there. The hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful. We ate in the hotel bar several times and the food was great and very reasonably priced. The only downsides to this hotel was the lack of air conditioning in our room so it was extremely uncomfortable at night and also that there is no ATM in the hotel which wasn’t very helpful as the hotel souvenir shop only took cash.

i recently stayed at the Novotel beginning of September with my family.
The hotel is nice, the staff were welcoming and kind, however the location wasn't good, it is a rough area, surrounded by pick-pockters, best to not walk to Omonia station which is a 10minute walk from the hotel at night. Best to order a taxi from the hotel, as they will book a taxi for you. The room is nice, however the fridge wasn't working, best to check it's plugged in first, and views from the hotel room is not so great, as it's looking at other people's homes, so don't expect a good view until you visit the roof, where the pool is located.
Wasn't enough sun loungers to use, which i understand for health and safety reasons.
Prices of buying food and water wasn't cheap at the hotel.
Unfortunately i won't be staying at Novotel anymore in Athens, probably best to stay closer to the town square, myself, mum and sister didn't feel comfortable or safe.

The rating refers to the travel period July 2021 (Corona) and room 516, traveling as a couple without children. Normal requirements for equipment and food, no luxury travelers.

Hotel in general
Central location, furnishings a bit old and very simply furnished.
Restaurant modern, pool area very nice.
Unfortunately the pool was closed for renovation without any information when booking or on the hotel site.
Free parking spaces are available in the hotel's underground car park.

Meal
Breakfast as a buffet was completely sufficient.
Corona requires disposable gloves and wearing a mask at the buffet, but this was disregarded by many guests and unfortunately tolerated by the staff.
The atmosphere in the restaurant area is calm and relaxed.

Room 516 Executive Room
5. floor with balcony to the street
If possible, take a room on a higher floor to have more quiet.
The safe could be used free of charge, the closets in our room were so small that there was hardly any space for storing clothes and there was only a socket on one side of the bed for charging the cell phone.
One of the quietest rooms we have had in a long time.
The beds are very comfortable and there were 2 pillows of different firmness.

Nice enough hotel, but surrounding area not the best.

Check in very efficient, given room on 4th floor. Usual Novotel room. Bathroom clean. Bed needs new mattress as were rolling to middle of bed. Rooftop pool area with view of Acropolis fantastic, great friendly barman. Needs more sun beds up there, because 5 nowhere near enough.

Worst bit of hotel was the breakfast. For €12 this was a farce. Choice shocking. Basically a hard boiled egg, I know we are in challenging times, but having also stayed in a Novotel in the middle of Frankfurt in July, you still got a decent breakfast which was extremely covid friendly. Also the staff at breakfast were plain ignorant. It was as though we were an inconvenience to them us being there. Rest of the staff in the hotel were extremely friendly.

Definitely recommend a taxi to anyone staying here at night, first night we walked out and felt nervous walking out.

The main issue with the Hotel Novotel Athenes is its location as all other prominent places are far and the surrounding locality isn't happening or rather consists of closed buildings. The staff at the hotel unlike other Accor groups and I have stayed in quite a few aren't friendly or hospitable and language is an issue.
The rooms are small and the only good thing about the place is its rooftop restaurant which offers a view of the Acropolis.

We were a family of 8 requiring 4 rooms so this option was the most economical. The hotel was clean and service was good. There was no storage in the room so we could not unpack which kept our things messy and creased. Breakfast was good and kids ate free, which was helpful.
Taxis to Plaka etc were very reasonable and walking was a good option during the day. The pool was nice but water was very cold and bottom very slippery.

Overall a very good value for money. Hotel was clean, staff were polite. The location isn’t amazing but once you walk 10 /15 minutes you’re out of it and into where the main shops are. We didn’t feel unsafe at any point.

Breakfast was a nice buffet with a good selection. We also paid for dinner which was fine. You ordered off a menu for that which also had a an average selection (pasta, pizza, burger and Greek options). We even arrived late on our first night and they had prepared plates for us as we had missed the dinner service.

My only negative was I wished they’d explained the half board a bit more clearly when we arrived. The staff seemed just as confused as us about it and we were told different information by different people. We did figure it all out in the end though!

The rooftop pool is very nice! Recommend going to watch the sunset and seeing the acropolis lit at night. Only down side is we were told we couldn’t eat there being half board which kind of sucked. We just enjoyed it after dinner with drinks. It does get busy and there are limited pool seats so keep that in mind if you’re after a lounge by the pool.

Overall, it was a great stay! Very quiet, the location worked well for us and the pool was nice after a long, hot day!

Nice hotel, lovely staff. Can't really fault it. Breakfast was good, something for everyone. The area seemed a bit off putting at first, but it was in our price range and I didn't feel unsafe once I got used to it. We had no bother.
It's in perfect walking distance to all the main sites.
The only aspect I didn't like was the overwhelming scent of the pot-pourri.

The pool was closed because it's winter. I can see it getting very crowded. But it's a city break, you aren't there to spend your days by the pool.
