We used the hotel for one night on arrival in Athens and before beginning an island hopping holiday in the Cyclades.
The only drawback was a wedding reception (with a band) on the hotel next door which went on until dawn!
"Extremely nice hotel next to parliament building"
The hotel was exquisite and we were promptly greater and escorted to the butler reception area. Once there, we received champagne and other drinks compliments of the hotel. Our room was a junior suite and the room was very well accommodated and came with a butler. However I'm not certain the butler is worth the extra charge. I called the butler number and was never connected to the "personal butler" that we were supposed to have. However, we quickly forgot about this when we dined on the top floor and were able to enjoy amazing food and a tremendous view of the Parthenon on the acropolis. A great memory and experience!
Great hotel, really helpful staff and good location. Caught the hop on bus a block up the street and ate at several of the cafes at the square about 3 blocks away. Would stay here again next time we are in Athens.
"Relaxed and comfortable close to metro and sights"
We stayed four nights on our first trip to Athens. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was very comfortable with wet room bathroom, TV, Wi-Fi, fridge, air-con and plenty of space to spread our things! The communal areas were clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was very good with plenty of variety, catering to all tastes including local cuisine (dolmades for breakfast). The pool and bar were cool and refreshing.

cultural heart of Athens. city. links. and shopping districts. attractions of the Novus City Hotel.More
For the price this hotel should be a four star, the area is not too hot, police on foot patrol at night make the area safe, shopping area and restaurants are everywhere, Acropolis 15 min walk, metro station around the corner from hotel, great breakfast buffet. Sunday is a slow day, few places open, but Monday thru saturday very busy. You cannot beat the price and great area location for shopping and public transportation.
I visit Athens every year. Have been staying at a different hotel and this year we were told they did not have the room. I booked the Athens Plaza as ti was the closest hotel to where I like to be that did not seem outrageously priced! I WAS EXTREMELY surprised at how amazing the staff were and how beautiful and spacious the hotel was! In simple words this will be where we will stay every year from now on!!!!
The hotel is not near downtown Athens if that is what you are looking for... it is located in a very nice suburb about 20km away or so. Neighbourhood is wonderful -- mature parks and trees. Also, unlike many areas in downtown Athens, the neighbourhood near the hotel is quite affluent and safe -- lots of hip bars and restaurants.
Hotel staff was wonderful. I had a flight and had to leave the hotel at 6:30am prior to breakfast -- but they packed me a breakfast to go in a doggie bag which I could enjoy while in transit. Very nice touch
This hotel was spacious, clean, very hip and the staff very helpful. My only complaint is the service and food/drink in the beautiful rooftop restaurant was only mediocre. Our overall stay was exceptional.
