What defines the best hotels in Athens?

“Good” is a subjective term. For any one of us there are different definitions of what are “good” qualities in a hotel. They are subject to individual tastes and, sometimes, needs of the moment. They change with time, with experience and with different stays in different hotels. Hence, you may stay in a hotel with a feature you have not seen before. After your stay, this becomes a must-have for any future hotel you will be staying. Ultimately, this hotel becomes the benchmark for you as you compare this experience with others. The location also plays a major role in the characterization of “best hotels in Athens”. Some features that might be considered “good” and desirable in a region are not considered in another region. Even in the same city, different types of hotels that offer different amenities, vary in the perception of guests. Objectively, a “good” hotel must satisfy a list of features and characteristics, common to all accommodations. Set up by hospitality industry practice and standards, these are features that make a hotel “good”. An objectively “good” hotel is one that has all, or most of these features:

  • Excellent location, in the center of their area, giving access to all interesting sights
  • Proximity to means of public transportation, that lead to points of entry (airports, ports etc.)
  • Comfort in sleeping arrangements, with state-of-the-art beds, mattresses and pillows
  • Full modern amenities that ensure the guests’ satisfaction
  • Non-polluting, natural materials and a positive environmental outlook
  • Attention to detail in the arrangements, procedures and special requests of guests
  • Quality of service with the guest at the center of consideration
  • Unique and memorable style, though with a touch of the local culture
  • Helpful and knowledgeable staff, ready to point the guest to interesting sights, but also to food, drink & entertainment suggestions
