Owner/Manager: Mrs. Maria Armata
Jan. 2006 agreed with Mrs. Armata a special rate of 55 Euro per double room
(this could be repeated in future).
She does not accept credit cards but cash payments or throught the post. Bookings should be done quickly as this is a small hotel.
We had a look at the rooms, they are freshly renovated, spacious, private bath, air conditioning, telephone, television and very clean.

We really liked that one, looks like very cosy, with all modern facilities, even internet access (if your plugs plug to the greek plugs - you can buy an adaptor at an electrical store).
the site with Athos hotel you may also find a little map showing the location
of the hotel. You will see that Apolonos street (Kimon hotel) is just a few
steps away. Both hotels are a distance of less than 100 meters from each
other and in the heart of the city center. Still we were impressed how
quiet the neighbourhood is - no noises at all! This is because they are little
side streets which have almost no traffic. There are many bars and restaurants
around as well as a big shopping area. Many interesting sites and all the
best, Athens has to show are reachable just in walking distance.
