Very basic place to stay with all the things you need. The location is convenient and you have access to wifi. The general standard of the rooms are ok and if you need a place to stay for a few nights and just want a bed, a shower, and the ability to do some Internet, then this is fine.
We really enjoyed our stay at Grande Bertagne. The hotel is central to all Athens sites and tour bus stops. It's an historic building with beautiful views of the Acropolis from the outdoor restaurant on the top floor. Great food and great view. Staff was very accommodating as well.
My stay at this excellent hotel had a great start when I was upgraded (without asking) to a better room, which incidentally had a lovely balcony. The décor is very quirky and there is art throughout the building; even if you don't particularly like the art, you are aware of the decorative efforts that have been made. Without exception every member of staff with whom I had any contact was charming and anxious to please; customer service was exemplary ! The breakfast buffet was wonderful with a generous selection of hot and cold foods - we certainly didn't require any lunch.
The taxi driver had a difficult time finding this hotel from the airport. I thought the hotel was 500 meters from the Central Bus Station when in fact it was 500 meters from a bus stop. I had to be on a bus by 0700 the next morning so this misunderstanding on my part caused stress until the evening when the son of the owner could communicate with me in English. My evening meal had to be ordered in because there were no restaurants nearby the hotel. It was a nice family owned Greek hotel, but not convenient for my needs on this trip.

Hotel Chris was build in 1989 in a quiet street of Kifissia near the motorway. It has two floors and 25 rooms with balconies …More
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
Great hotel, great location. Very clean room and nice bathroom. Air con worked well and we had a nice antique balcony where I say drinking wine at midnight. My balcony had a small view of acropolis. We had our 2 kids with us and they let us check in early so kids could sleep, staff helped with suitcases into elevator.
I don't do breakfast much so I did not sample. I would stay again and have recommended to friends already. I enjoyed the orange trees on the street too.
