Room was adequate, though the double consisted of two pushed-together twin beds. Staff varied in their degree of helpfulness; some of them are a bit cool. Breakfast staff efficient but, again, cool. Breakfast spread quite abundant, and breakfast space rather pleasant. It was cold and rainy during our stay, so we did not visit the rooftop, unfortunately. This is a pretty big hotel, and the elevator is woefully inadequate (holds two small people, without luggage, at a time). It is clear that guests were smoking in their rooms (despite "no smoking" signs) without consequence. But here's the biggie: FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PUT A REAL DOOR ON THE BATHROOM. There is a sort of swinging, non-latching foggy-glass partition that doesn't even go all the way to the floor. Fine if you're with someone you've been married to for 30 years, but even then, perhaps a little too intimate, if you catch my drift. The bathroom itself is fairly nice, but it needs to be an actually separate room!

Pros: great location, clean, good breakfast, efficient in booking taxi to airport
Cons: staff can improve in service. Unsmiling, quite curt, and stick to rigid rules, e.g. cannot bottled water to breakfast even though it is empty, reception asked us to email reservation to clarify subsequent stay a few days later instead of helping.

We went to this hotel with friends on vacation. The rooms were great - a decent size and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. There is a rooftop bar with a lovely views of the Acropolis, perfect for to watch the sunset. The location is great for sightseeing.There is a good choice at breakfast was great. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

My wife and I stayed here for one night and found the hotel to be comfortable and well situated. We took the train in from the airport, very easy to do and much less than a taxi. Train station is a 5 minute walk away. The location was very good with many restaurants, shops and sites all within an easy walking distance. The staff were very courteous and friendly, we had asked for a room facing the Acropolis and that is what we got. The view of course was fantastic because of this. We also got to hotel early and they allowed us to check-in with no problems. We booked a Superior double room and it was a fair size, clean and bright with lots of mirrors to make it appear bigger than it was. The bathroom was small but clean and the shower had plenty of hot water. The room was very quiet, no noise issues at all. The only complaint was the elevator, it was the smallest that we’ve seen in our travels, I’m a little claustrophobic so I took the stairs.
We had an early flight to Santorini so we didn’t experience the breakfast. We informed the front desk about this the night before and they were kind enough to pack a breakfast for us to go , much appreciated.
We tried booking the hotel on the way back but unfortunately there were no rooms available. We stayed at another nearby hotel and it wasn’t anywhere close to what we had experienced at the Central. Overall we were happy to have booked this hotel, we felt we received good value and would definitely stay there again.

Room tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Acropolis

Cannot believe this small wonderful hotel is not higher rated. From entering the hotel with first class reception area who happily offer all advice to the cleanliness is superb. Breakfast is lovely - cakes delicious. We will be back.
